Eco Lodge with Luxury Villas by the Sea in Milos

Set on a striking and tranquil clifftop overlooking the Aegean Sea, Skinopi Lodge on the Cycladic island of Milos features three immaculate villas with extraordinary views.

Found hidden above a tiny fishing village- and located within a protected archaeological site- the Lodge offers direct access to a private swimming spot, as well as peaceful surroundings- making Skinopi the ultimate destination for those seeking pure escapism, as well as serving as the perfect base for those desiring to explore the alluring island in depth.

Featuring minimalist architecture, which offers guests a chance to reconnect with nature, Skinopi Lodge was created in partnership with prominent Greek architects Kokkinou-Kourkoulas and landscape architect Ellie Pangalou.  

Carefully designed to harmoniously blend into the wild landscape and authentic Cycladic culture, the stylish sea-facing villas are primarily made of local stone, which was inspired by the Syrmata (traditional fishermen cottages) of the island. The other main material that takes centre stage is glass- with modern floor-to-ceiling glass windows framing the sea views and other spectacular natural surroundings; including lush olive groves and aromatic plants.  

Once you step inside to the light-filled, open and airy spaces, you will find whitewashed walls and traditional cement floors, as well as pristine seafront private land, creating the ultimate retreat with your own private front-row view of the sunset.

The villas also boast outdoor kitchens for al fresco cooking and dining, outdoor showers for bathing in the moonlight, breezy indoor-outdoor spaces with a private sundeck for quiet time with family and friends (all with endless views of the spectacular sea). Each villa also features controlled air-conditioning, a safe, flat-panel TV, portable stereo, and WiFi.

Perfect place to retreat, recharge and explore.

Stunning New Boutique Hotel Opens in Milos  

A new waterfront hotel has opened its doors on the beautiful Cycladic island of Milos. Set on a pretty fishing village, White Pebble Suites features earthy and serene rooms and suites; not to mention tranquil outdoor living spaces that are magnificently designed for guests to enjoy a peaceful and majestic getaway. 


Shaped by its volcanic past, Milos offers its visitors breathtaking beaches and an exotic beauty unlike any other island in the Aegean Sea- as the spectacular volcanic rocks paint the beaches red, pink, and orange. White Pebble Suites is poised on the waterfront fishing village of Pollonia. Filled with sun-dappled cafes and a range of seafood tavernas, from the hotel, you are only steps from a rocky cove and a charming sandy bay. Serene by day and lively by night, Pollonia is the ideal spot for exploring Milos and the surrounding islands. The hotel is 12km from Milos airport and 10km from the port and Milos Town. 

Style & Character 

Designed by Athens-based KKMK Architects, the intimate hotel features polished cement, wood, and pale marble- offering a modern interpretation of Cycladic minimalism. Pebble-shaped tables and curvaceous built-in furniture are inspired by the rippling limestone cliffs and organic architecture of Milos; while the smooth white curves around the unique volcanic landscapes of the island also feature in the design, which is both warm and inviting. 


The 12 sea-view suites are immersed in their natural surroundings and extend to shady terraces with sparkling sea views, Eight of the suites have heated plunge pools where guests can unwind and watch the sunset. Aromatic plants and swaying reeds create natural borders between suites, a cocoon of privacy and serenity.

Food & Drinks

The seasonal, modern Mediterranean menu at the hotel is created by executive chef Vasileios Giannopoulos, who specialises in Greek cuisine and sources ingredients from all over the Cyclades. Guests can enjoy restaurant-worthy room service, romantic poolside dining, spirited cocktails at the seaside bar, and tailor-made menus for private dining. 


White Pebble Suites also features a spa, a beautifully curated boutique featuring the latest resort and beachwear, a seaside pool bar, and private dining.  There is also a saltwater swimming pool that appears to flow into the sea, and Wellness Spa dedicated to the healing powers of the island’s minerals. The spa features a tranquil treatment room, hammam, and revitalising Vichy shower. Poolside yoga is also available on request. 

Ideal for…

His evocative photography and writing transport you to the heart of the Cycladic culture, landscapes and colours. And if you want to experience it for yourself, he is available to offer photographic tours. This personal story about Milos is the fourth in a narrative series created by him especially for IN+SIGHTS GREECE that will run over the next few weeks.

Discovering the Beauty of Milos

Too tough on the car, too rough on the tyres, that’s the west of Milos. The sun in my face, I drove at a pace so slow it went on for hours. Lonely but lovely Agkathia bay as far away as it is; twice I was there under the glare, standing where once there were flowers.

It really is a beautiful place and next time I’ll stay for longer. For some reason it’s been a late afternoon arrival both times, and the road does take that much effort.

I finned my way to Sykia cave along from Agios Ioannis, its miniature beach is well out of reach to most of its passersby, and its hole in the roof is natural proof of beauty under the sky. When I got there, people did stare, wondering “No boat?” I stayed for a while offering a smile, but then they were gone, by a mile. The location is simply amazing with its entrance through a rockface into an interior bay that has its own beach, and that skylight view through the hole overhead.

Along the way to Kleftiko, the arch in the sea in the south, the road played a joke so there was no hope of getting to where I’d planned. To the right I steered, then a left appeared which led me back … to the sand.

I didn’t try that one again though it was an enjoyable trip along the coast on an unpaved road that was under construction at the time.

One place I’m enchanted by is this enormous rock with its humpback form separate from Milos by only a few miles. I’ve walked and climbed and crawled through mines there looking for clues from the past; the air was cold, the tracks were old, but bold was I in the dark.

Erimomilos, or Antimilos, is the isle of my dreams for fishing. It’s so far away but maybe one day… Until then I’ll just go on wishing.
