Melinda in Athens, Greece


It’s great to meet you.

There is power in a good view and I believe everyone needs one; looking for and finding a good view has changed my life and mia kali thea can change yours too!

I learned the concept of mia kali thea when I lived in Greece. When discussing a restaurant, hotel, home or cafe, Greek friends would often ask: is there a good view? Did you have a good view? These views didn’t have to be a big ocean sunset but simply enjoying the person sipping coffee with you or watching people walking by.

It took me a time to slow down and understand. Slowly, I came to appreciate what a view can do: it opens our hearts to a new perspective–a bit of serendipity.

My Greek friends have lived this idea for years and I believe it’s one of the many reasons they are so open and generous. I thank them for sharing this heart-opening concept with me. I am still learning.

Mia Kali Thea (MEE-ah Kah-LEE THAY-uh) means “A Good View” in Greek.

Mia Kali Thea is what we see and also a way of seeing the world around us. It’s the little glimpses throughout the course of the day—whatever captures our attention and brings a smile to our hearts. Sometimes that’s all we need to change the moment we’re in or our whole day.

Mia Kali Thea takes this concept a step further by donating sales profits to offer symbolic good views to those in need of them (read more in Our Mission). Find your good view in our galleries.
