“Excellent view in a quieter part of the island”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Since many Greek people have summer houses in Thassos it is a crowded island. Archondissa stands on a hill, on it's own and in a quiet location. There is a pebble peach in walking distance however you need to climb down and up a steep hill to get to it. Since the beach is pebbly it is not crowded either. The view from the pension is really breathtaking. It has a nice restaurant with generally good food however the prices were the highest we have paid in a Greek restaurant in all the Greek islands we have been to in the last five years.
The rooms are small and the bathrooms are tiny and need reburbishment. The rooms and the bathrooms are only cleaned when you ask for it. In the restaurant area a lot of unused chairs and other furniture items are stocked in a corner like a warehouse which affects the atmosphere in a negative way.
Overall Archondissa is a pension with wonderful view in an quiet location. The owners are nice and helpful people, the restaurant has good food and good view. However it needs a few touch ups and a closer look at the price-benefit ratio it offers to its guests.

Room Tip: Corner room have better view both downstairs and upstairs. Beware that not all the rooms have that w...

Reviewed 19 June 2009

I write this review with great trepidation, for fear that bus-loads of tourists will invade this sacred place. Tassos Kuzis, a kind of superhero of hospitality and charm, is proprietor of this very traditional, very entertaining pension. The rooms are modest, but comfortable (and priced accordingly), most of them located on a balcony with one of the most beautiful views in all of Greece (see the photos, attached). Just down hill from the pension, via a small goat path, is one of three spectacular beaches within minutes from the pension (one beach has large stones, another is an archeological site, and the other has white sand and a crystalline lagoon). Tassos runs the best restaurant on the whole island of Thassos (indeed, native Thassians drive here on the weekends from all around the island): the family produces its own olive oil, wine, tsipouro and meat. They grow much of their own produce. Tassos' father is a fisherman and there's very reasonably priced, unreasonably fresh seafood for the offering every day. Tassos' mother is a wonderful chef; in the morning she puts casseroles and roasted meats in a traditional wood oven. In short, nearly everything you eat at Pension Archodissa was grown, caught, or picked within about one mile. It's a treasure for anyone interested in local food, traditional island culture, and great swimming. Also, in early June the pension hosts a Greek dancing school. Get off the beaten path to Aliki--you'll see Greece as it once was and thankfully still is.
