Chrysomilia is a village on the island of Fournoi, Samos prefecture, in the eastern Aegean Sea.

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.
