All's well that ends well.. & it did!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation itself is simple but perfectly adequate & what we've come to expect from many holidays on the Greek islands. Who needs/wants frills when your in such a lovely environment! The apartment was extremely clean & the towels/bedding were changed regularly. The pool/terrace areas were also spotlessly clean, well maintained & the pool was bigger than it looked in the photo which was a bonus! Alan & Jean (owners) clearly care about their property & it is immaculately maintained inside & out.

Sadly our holiday was marred from day two by a medical emergency but Alan & Jean were amazing hosts & possibly even life savers!! They both bent over backwards to make our stay as pleasurable & comfortable as it could be given the circumstances which we cannot thank them enough for. Everyone was genuinely helpful from start to finish to be honest. We used a local car hire company (New Line) & the delightful Violet picked us up from Heraklion airport & drove us back to the apartment, which took the “post flight, trying to find your accommodation in the dark” stress out of the equation which was lovely.

As my partner was ill for most of the holiday I was confined to the village for the best part of our stay which was surprisingly not a problem. Apart from the pool to enjoy (not to mention a cuppa & natter with our super hosts) the small village is beautifully traditional & there were thankfully several places to eat within walking distance. My personal favourite being Makis Taverna which was a convenient 1 minute walk from the apartment, which turns into a 2 minute stagger back after an evening of Makis' Cretan hospitality! Traditional but not of the typical tourist type, its wonderfully friendly family run taverna & highly recommended!

For the price & standard Apartment Alexi was an absolute find for a quiet break & we will certainly return to Milatos to see everyone again, next time without the illness!

Nearest Airport : Heraklion at 50 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : starsie at 250 Metres Nearest Ferry : Heraklion at 55 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : at 100 Metres Nearest Beach : milatos at 1 Kilometres

Special interest holidays:

Milatos is ideally suited for walkers, hikers and bikers or for those who wish to just relax


Apartment Alexi is at the edge of the beautiful tradition village of Milatos. You can stroll down to the seaside village of Milatos Beach some 15 minutes away where you will find a small man-made beach at the working harbour and extensive pebble beaches to both west and east of the village square. If driving you will find further beaches at Sissi, Agios Nikalaos and Elounda.


Milatos is some 50-minutes drive from Heraklion Airport using both the E75 (new highway) and local winding roads (driving instructions available on request). Car hire is recommended for those seeking to discover the treasures of Crete. However, if you only seek to relax locally a recommended taxi or personal pick-up (owner) from the airport can be arranged at extra cost.


Sissi is a 10-minute drive away while the 'bustling' town of Malia is about another 5 minutes drive. The bustling and large towns of Agios Nikalaos and Hersonnisos are around a 30-minute drive away. Elounda, Plaka and boats for the Island of Spinalonga need about 45 minutes. The Capital City of Heraklion is about an hours drive. A selection of Crete's cultural, historical and archaeological treasures such as the Minoan palaces of Knossos and Malia are within easy driving distances.

Further Details:

Of local interest is the Milatos Cave (scene of a Turkish massacre), various mountain and coastal walks and visits to smaller villages (Kounali and Latsida) and the working town of Neapolis. A must is a boat trip from Plaka or Agios Nikalaos to Spinalonga. Spinalonga was a leper colony until the late 1950's and has been the subject of a multi award winning book "The Island" by Victoria Hislop.
