About Milos

Marked by its striking volcanic landscape, the island of Milos is a hidden gem on the Aegean and is the most southwestern of the islands in the Cyclades group. The Louvre's famous Venus de Milo sculpture was discovered here in 1820. This island brims with the local character and charm often lost on some of the bigger Greek islands. Our collection of best places to stay in Milos focuses on providing intimacy and luxury for visitors to this glorious island.

What not to miss

  • The island's volcanic geography has two distinct features, the eastern side of the island is home to a series of thermal springs, whose healing powers Hipprocrates raved about. The western side is largely protected as a nature reserve and features some glorious beaches.
  • The island is also home to a labyrinth of early Christian catacombs.
  • For those looking for more history, explore the island's fascinating Mining Museum and visit the unique Holy Trinity Church at Adamas.
