A superior family-run hotel which oozes Greek character and warmth and offers a welcoming, intimate atmosphere. Unlike other properties, they have do not offer an all inclusive option in order to maintain high standards. There is considerable attention to detail and service standards.
The village-style layout on the mountainside and traditional Aegean architecture makes the property standout on the coastline. As the property is in an elevated position on the hillside, there are many steps to reach some rooms. A 24-hour minibus service transports guest throughout the grounds wherever they wish to go.
Ideal for couples of all ages, the property also suits families with its children’s pool, playground and proximity to the beach.
A palm-lined driveway welcomes you to the main entrance and building, which blends in with accommodation blocks. Designed in the local Aegean style, the exterior is reminiscent of a picture postcard with colourful cubed blocks tumbling down the hillside from the church that sits in a prominent position at the top of the mount.
The low-rise properties are painted in bright white with touches of lemon and pale blue woodwork in typical Greek colours. Protruding balconies are compact in size with enviable sea views.
