Myloi house is surrounded by a forest and a large garden with lovely stone patios. Everywhere your eye can see, rich green flora, that brings you closer to nature, a marvelous rare and unique landscape. Stone built house construction like the old proud Cretan people used to built their houses, a perfect chance to experience the local culture first hand. Traditional house Myloi is like a small museum with its handmade old style furniture, wooden roofs, wooden stairs and decoration art. It is like being in the past, but what is lacking in comforts, it earns it in construction and exterior views. Don't forget that on top of this, a natural private lagoon in exchange to the swimming pool is there to amaze you! Wooden roofs are blocking the summer heat and green flora around the house offers a cool atmosphere even in the warmest days. The house can accommodate up to 6 people in its 4 old style bedrooms, but the environment is not suited for small children (because of the many levels). The living room area has Internet WIFI, traditional furniture and a stone built cozy fireplace. The kitchen is equipped with most modern comforts and safe is available.

Myloi is a quiet peaceful palce with welcome local people. When you want to change environment from forest to sea, only 6 km away from the house is Rethymnon city with a sandy organized beach. Rethymno is a small city with cultural significance and it is mostly known for its old city. It also has a Venetian built castle and harbor, with many bars, restaurants and shops around it.
Amazing property. Stay for a long period because there is so much to explore in the property itself. There is a short walk to the property from the main road. The place is beautiful and very cool even in summers. Even though there was a short trek there was an arrangement for our luggage even for a late night check in. Must visit.
We were extremely pleased with our stay at Myloi. For our stay in Crete, we wanted to stay somewhere traditional (check), somewhere a bit more private (check), and some place where we could get to know Crete (check). As someone who also works in market research in the customer service industry, I am also accustomed to what I can expect and what I should be reasonable about when vacationing. I help... more
We stayed five nights at Manos' one of a kind place. It was definitely an experience to remember. We were well prepared thanks to his very accurate description. The house itself is old, and if you come with young children as we did, take into consideration that you will need to split between the different rooms opening up to the shared area, and that the property is divided between different level... more
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Myloi. The villa is quirky, rustic, characterful and so very different from anything else on offer. We found the host Pandelis fantastic - friendly and polite, responsive and helpful. The house is a converted traditional dwelling, and as such has a lot of quirks to it - the way that bathrooms and kitchen are organised for instance (externally accessible). We fo... more
