Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our expectations were high when we arrived in Milos and we were not disappointed. This small former monastery was thoughtfully converted by its owners by preserving many of the original features. The view from the terrace is spectacular at any moment of the day - especially at sunset. The alley that the three main rooms open to, lined with bougainvilliers and aromatic plants, enhances the sense of space. Some of the nearby streets in Plaka are bustling in the evening but you don't notice it once you reach the sidestreet to the monastery's gate. The person recommended by the owner for cleaning the house is also a fantastic cook.

Management response:

Thank you very much Lex for your very kind review of our monastery. We love it and we very much appreciate when people of you quality like it too !

About the neighbourhood
Our monastery is located in the old city of Plaka, the best choice in Milos island for those who want alltogether to contemplate the best view of the bay, to be in the most beautiful historical village of the island and have always the choice of the most attractive 60 beaches within 15 minutes of the house !
The monastery is located in the most beautiful place of the island, in the most charming little village on a top of the hill. Our terrace is on the edge of the cliff with an amazing landscape of the bay just under.
When you are inside or on the terrace you are in a total silence, even in the evening, and when you go out you are next to the most animated street of the village with all restaurants, bars, gifts and art shops of Plaka.
Getting around
It is strongly recommanded to rent a car because you can choose every day new beaches to swim within 15 minutes and it is easier to carry your supplies.
There is a public and a private parking very close to the monastery (100 yards). There are also plenty of car parks down the village.
There are many interesting locations to visit in Milos island which require a car or a quad or a scooter/moto...
