Often in life we want to experience the ‘real thing’: traditional, historic, genuine, true-to-life experiences but who can honestly say that they want to experience the traditional, old-fashioned, less than modern amenities and accommodation that would truthfully go with them? The wonderful charm of staying at the Eiriana Luxury Suites on Milos Island in Greece is that you really can have the best of both worlds. Whilst staying in traditional white-washed buildings surrounded by the famous Trypiti windmills and picturesque mountainous Greek island landscape you can enjoy the contemporary luxury and comfort of spacious guest suites with modern amenities and panoramic views.
Situated on the hilltops of Trypiti village and nestled amongst the scenic windmills of Milos Island, this small boutique hotel boasts four luxurious and spacious guest suites, each decorated in traditional white with wonderfully vibrant citrus and berry colour themes throughout. Each room has its own private balcony overlooking Milos Bay and the surrounding area with access to a large, landscaped communal garden. The suites have all the modern amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel: excellent air conditioning, free wireless, satellite TV’s, wireless MP3 docks, espresso machines, complimentary bottles of water and fully-stocked mini bars as well as the personal touches you benefit from in a boutique hotel such as their delicious daily in-room breakfast prepared with the freshest local ingredients.
Excellent service is the standard at the Eiriana Suites. The owners are incredibly friendly and go out of their way to make your stay something special with the occasional surprise thrown in for good measure. Full of expert ‘local’ knowledge, they are always happy to recommend restaurants to suit your tastes and offer advice and assistance to book island tours and activities. To complete the great service they also offer a pick-up and drop-off service, on-site parking and are family-friendly too, providing extra beds, cots and strollers if you need them.
There is plenty to see on Milos itself, ‘the Island of colours’, with over 75 beaches; numerous quaint villages with friendly locals, great local restaurants and the famous Catacombs, Ancient Theatre and the discovery site of Aphrodite. Plaka, the picturesque Capital of Milos is just a 10 minute stroll from the Eiriana Suites and a short scenic bus ride will take you into Trypiti filled with wonderful little ‘tavernas’ and delicious local cuisine.
So, if you’re looking for a taste of the old beautifully blended with modern comforts and excellent hospitality, then give this small, boutique hotel a second look, after all the best things truly do come in small packages.
