Milos isn’t the smallest island, but half of it is largely unexplorable due to the nature of the roads, so you will find the majority of accommodation is concentrated in the north east of the island. This is not a place where you will find large, built up hotel chains, instead you will find a number of pretty boutique properties, great Air Bnbs, and some very dreamy villas!

It’s all about slow mornings, watching the sun go up and down, wine overlooking the sea and fun days exploring every nook and cranny of Milos.
