“I do think the idea of ​​living your life to the fullest is a little flawed. Like, why is jumping out of an airplane inherently better than reading a book? Or why is living a life that looks good on instagram inherently more meaningful than a life lived quietly? I just do not buy it. ”- John Green

Kato Chora / Milea, Messinia Mani, Peloponnese, Greece

The name Milea (or Milia) is first mentioned in the Venetian document from 1465 and comes from the fruit tree (apple tree) or (according to other sources) from the Homeric word for goats ("mila"). In Milea there are many beautifully restored traditional houses and an impressive number of churches (about 70) in and near the village.

Milea is located about 15 km from the popular coastal villages such as Agios Nikolaos and Stoupa and about 30-40 km from the mysterious "Deep Mani" with its fantastic castles and wild coves.
