We, Demetris and Barbara, are a Cypriot/German couple and live in the village. We are happy to help you with information about the area and anything else you might want. Pick fresh oranges from our own fields in season! We will be there for you if you need us.We like to go on holidays ourselves and try to provide you with everything we find important for an enjoyable time off.
Why Barbara Symeou chose Miliou
We built the villas on our own land.
What makes this Villa unique
This is the right place for all who seek a quiet place to relax from a hectic life - beautiful views to the valley and to the opposite mountains. We also enjoy staying at the villas for a free weekend. I, Barbara, work as a special needs teacher and definitely need some time to unwind. It really is a good place to be.

A great find...
The property that we usually stay in, in the area was not available and so that difficult search to find a property that ticked all the boxes was on. How lucky we were to find Galinia 1 in Miliou (and indeed there is Galinia 2 as a spare - next door but totally separate and private - and two other larger properties expertly provided by the owners less than about 200metres away).
The property is amazingly located on a hillside with fantastic views . It comes with all the expected services (including fast wifi) and has an amazingly deep pool for a holiday villa. Open plan dining / kitchen / living space with 2 seperate bedrooms (one double one with two singles) and a bathroom, all well appointed, clean and tidy and little touches such as the provided / free oranges in the fridge for your own juice - a nice touch
The owners were away when we arrived and so provided details of who to contact for any matters, but we did get to meet them briefly just before we departed the property and were very nice and friendly people, and very helpful too.
This property definitely requires a car (and you will soon get used to the Cypriot roads). It is only 15 mins or so from Polis which provides access to the coast, and only 40 mins or less from Paphos airport.
As the title says a great find - thank you B&D
Beautiful house... home comforts...breath-taking views
Beautiful house with breath-taking views! Recommend to anyone and everyone. Perfect base from which to explore the area and large pool to play and cool down in. Great hosts - can't fault it!
Wonderful time in Miliou
A wonderful place to spend the holiday. We stayed there for 10 days and did not want to leave at all. The setting is fantastic, beautiful view, nice big and very clean pool. The garden is beautiful with orange trees around the villa. The house was very clean and had everything that was needed for a relaxing holiday. The owners were very helpful and nice, we will definitely want to come back again.
Thank you! Spring time is very nice in this green part of Cyprus.
Wir haben uns in der Villa Galinia 1 rundherum wohlgefühlt: Barbara und Demetris sind wunderbare Gastgeber und stets hilfsbereit. Sie haben uns mit jeder Menge Tipps für unseren ersten Aufenthalt auf dieser schönen Insel versorgt, die neben vielerlei kulturellen Angeboten auch viele einsame Strände für Sonnenbader mit Schnorchel-Ambitionen bereit hält. Wir würden gerne wiederkommen!
Erholsamer Urlaub in nettem Ambiente
Wir haben in diesem schönen Ferienhaus eine Woche Urlaub gemacht. Bei unserer Ankunft um Mitternacht fanden wir Lebensmittel für den nächsten Morgen vor und eine Flasche Wein, die uns das Ankommen verschönte. Am nächsten Morgen waren wir freudig erstaunt vom großräumigen und gemütlichen Ambiente. Das Haus ist gut aufgeteilt. Die Schlafzimmer sind gleich groß und haben genügend Schränke. Die Küche ist mit allen notwendigen Utensilien ausgestattet. Der Außenbereich mit dem tollen Pool und dem wunderschönen Ausblick in die Berge ist ein Genuss für sich und eine Oase der Ruhe. Das Haus ist umgeben von Orangenbäumen, an denen man sich bedienen darf. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Von hier aus kann man mit dem Auto viele Unternehmungen starten. Notwendige Lebensmittel erhält man in kleinen Supermärkten ein paar Kilometer weiter.
Gerne wären gern noch länger geblieben.
Cyprus offers you 340 days of sunshine per year, clean air and water and a lot of things to do. You will be fascinated by the variety of so many different landscapes. Beaches, cliffs, pinewoods, smooth hills and the scenery of the Troodos Mountains offer you beautiful views all the time. Miliou is a small, unspoilt village in the Pafos district. In the area farmers grow citrus fruit, grapes, almonds, tobacco and olives. In our rural area there are still many villages in the traditional style, Byzantine monasteries and churches, and plenty of roads to follow. Here traditional hospitality still exists. It takes you 15 minutes to Polis and the beaches there, 35 minutes to Pafos with its famous ancient sites, tourist area and nightlife. There are many half-day excursions for you to discover the area. If you want to relax with only nature around you and discover the different faces of Cyprus - this is the answer. - On Google Earth you can find the villas at 34'56'08N and 32'27'32E (winter) and on YOU TUBE under https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cFNuLMC4gg.
