Milies (Greek: Μηλιές) is a village on Mount Pelion in Greece. It is a traditional Greek mountain village, at a height of 400 m. It is 28km from Volos, the capital city of the prefecture of Magnesia. It has traditional stone houses, cobbled roads, good restaurants and accommodation in abundance. Milies is also notable for being the terminus of the narrow gauge (60 cm) Pelion Railway, built by the Italian engineer, Ernesto de Chirico, between 1895 and 1903. This proved to be of considerable economic advantage to the region. Recently restored from Neo Lechonia to Milies (16 kms), trains run twice a week at the weekend. The village commands striking views across the Pagasitikos Gulf and benefits from the many streams and water sources that Mt. Pelion is renowned for. These result in rich vegetation and cool, forested mountain slopes.

Milies is also a former municipality with a population 3513 (2001)
