ACCOMMODATION Raffia dreams on a cotton pillow. Cosy island rooms to escape city life. Thoughtful range of family rooms with value for money in mind.
DINING Inspired by local traditions and childhood memories: I dreamt of a ‘Plateia’ (piazza) to sit and eat casually; be it on your own, be it with family. Kids to run around freely with other kids making ‘Fassaria’ (noise). A ‘Plateia’ to stroll around and choose food & drinks and travel back to childhood.
KIDS & FAMILY Lifestyle Resorts tailor made for young or extended families. Laid back in spirit, with Grecoland services and nature adventures.
BEACH The beauty of a natural sandy beach, to freely enjoy with your family. Unforgettable days in the sun.
POOLS Great pools by the beach. Don’t we all love pools?
