Like so many we were island hopping using hotels close to ports. This usually means compromise. But at Hotel apxontiko its a destination in its own right. With an elegant foyer and room overlooking the harbour it rightly deserves its high ranking. The bonus is the charming manager Henrik who has restored the property and helps you to enjoy your...

It was love at first sight with this place. It is centrally located which means you can enjoy local cuisine just steps outside of the hotel. It is also in walking distance from the port, you can easily walk with your luggage. Henrik is a true host, his sense of style is everywhere. Imagine white clouds sprinkled with antiques and...
