Although we stayed only two nights at Milia, we fell in love with this place! The Mountain Retreat is located in the middle of nowhere which makes it that unique. You can be sure that nobody comes there randomly and there's no bus tourism - luckily! It's perfect to go hiking - that's what we did. Thanks to Tassos who showed us a really nice route (6h walk). But it's also nice just to stay in a traditional mountain village. The rooms are not the cheapest, but they are comfortable and clean and you have a nice breakfast included. And keep in mind that you support the ecological project! The food in the restaurant was one of the best we had during 2 weeks on Crete (see seperate review).
