A charming property with traditional features, spacious pool and classy modern pool bar. Extremely peaceful, with the sound of birdsong and separated from the quiet beach by agricultural land.
Even though there is a children’s pool, it is more suited to older adults looking for a tranquil retreat, and those who would appreciate the authenticity of taking their half board option in a local taverna.
There are 2 stone entrances. One, on the main road says ‘Castalia’, and the other on the road behind which runs parallel says ‘Saint Nicholas’. Both are the same hotel.
Nine buildings spread throughout the grounds, painted in cream and white, with wooden door surrounds. Some are newer than others, but all apartments have balconies of a reasonable size with either iron or concrete frontages.
