With great pleasure I can offer from June 2017 my Rural country cottage on the amazing island of Milos, Greece. The Island for Lovers or the perfect place to fall in love this summer.
The cottage is located a 6 minute drive from the hill top village of Plaka on a secluded horseshoe cul-de-sac. The neighbours are friendly and enjoy practicing their English and sharing the world famous Greek hospitality. Milos is a very natural and rural island with a diverse variety of wild life and fauna.
The house has a large double bedroom with a double bed,hanging rail, two bedside tables with lamps, a vintage chest of drawers and small chair. The room is very spacious and opens onto a tiled veranda. The second bedroom has a double bed, reading lamp and chair for lounging and small folding metal table.
The shower room is nicely decorated with white Italian mosaic tiles on the walls and traditional terra cotta tiles on the floor. All in good working order for your personal enjoyment. Take note that Milos does not have a sewer system and most toilets use a bio septic tank. You will need to dispose of toilet paper and sanitary tissues in a plastic bag and place daily in the local rubbish bins away from the house. Putting toilet paper in the bio septic tank will cause a blockage and very expensive maintenance issue you would need to pay for.
Water is supplied either by the well under my house or from the sea filtration system but both are not suitable for drinking so I highly recommend buying bottled water.
Insects also are on the island such as spiders and ants as well as mosquitoes so putting on protective and repellent sprays might be a good ideal as well as electric plug in machine inside the house.
A large open plan kitchen/lounge with an American style fridge freezer, a beautiful farm house table with four chairs.
the lounge section of the room consist of a small wicker sofa and coffee table and an antique cabinet that dates from the original house plan. The kitchen/lounge also opens onto the veranda.
Disponible para huéspedes
The house is fully equipped with all you need for cooking and dining. There are also bed linens and outside furniture for the veranda all at your disposal.

This summer I'm able to offer a service arrangement for guest wishing a more bespoke stay at the cottage. Cleaning, shopping and laundry can all be arranged at an additional fee if you prefer to have more time just enjoying all the island has to offer.
When deciding to book just mention what your special requirements are and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

I can't stress enough to would be visitors to Milos to do some research about the island before you arrive. This is one of the less developed of the greek Islands in the Cyclades and so you will find less shops and overall it is not a luxury destination. Standards are improving and without destroying the charm of a simple life and pleasure of the natural environment of Milos. It is a wonderful holiday destination for the free spirited nature lover and sun chasers.
I really hope to find lovely guest that will appreciate Milos as much as I have for my summer holidays over the past years. Everyone with a smile and adventurous spirit are welcome. We just need to respect the beauty of the island and make sure we leave it clean and healthy for future travellers to enjoy. Try to avoid using plastic bags for shopping and take as little waste materials with you on the beach. I'm happy to supply shopping bags made of cloth to be reused.
Just a little way to help keep the Island clean
Pleae take note that I do not live on the island and will not be there to greet you when you arrive. So please avoid arriving at night or very late evening. This is not a city with many street lights. Amongst the maze of small roads you will find it difficult on the first journey to find your way.
In a few days the roads all blends into one and travel becomes very easy around this small island. Arriving on the holiday with a small torch or flashlight is a very helpful ideal.
