Have you ever enjoyed the most breathtaking sunset while being on your own veranda? Or waken up to the crowing of a rooster to turn to your window and take a deep sip of sun and sea? The House of Lords is perhaps one of the most exclusive villas on Milos owned and lived-in by Artist Leda Luss Luyken, an idiosyncratic yet fascinating place to spend your holiday (or life), characterised by the panoramic view it offers to the whole island of Milos.
We are certain that if David Bowie would have been in the House of Lords he would have rewritten ‘Sound and Vision’ as follows:
‘Blue, blue, electric blue, That's the colour of my view.’
Our unique home is located in Kastro, the upper part of Plaka, the capital of Milos. The large verandas on both levels of the house will offer you the most magnificent view of the Aegean and the marvelous Cycladic sunsets. The 280° panoramic view of this house and its artistic mood will take your breath away.
Milos island offers plenty of activities, mainly during summer time. From swimming to water-sports, to sea tours and sightseeing, simply put, it is impossible to get bored.
The Aphrodite of Milos, residing today in the Louvre museum, was found some kilometers away from our house near Klima. The Archaeological Museum of Milos and the catacombs are definitely worth visiting for those that enjoy history and culture.
Of course food on a Greek island can never be praised enough. Quality seafood can be found in many restaurants in Adamas, Plaka and Pollonia. When you come, we will be happy to share our favourite places with you, just ask :)
