The name of the village is derived from the Greek words for "gold" and "speech". It is said that once a sailor became shipwrecked and when he came ashore spoke with the nicest words of the area.
The village is built at an altitude of 200 - 300m. There are roughly 1000 steps that lead to the coastal area and the village of Kambi. Chrysomilia is connected with Fournoi Korseon - the lone town of Fournoi - via a dirt road.
The population of Chrysomilia is 100 inhabitants but that figure is decreasing as more and more younger people seek their fortunes elsewhere.
