20 years now…
The owners Sotiris and Marianna first visited the Valitsa, site of the hotel, 20 years ago, when the only practical way to reach it was to cram yourself and your friends into an inflatable boat and arrive by sea.
That summer afternoon they became wrapped in the magical colors of the sunset, the sounds of the waves breaking on the rocks and the gentle fragrance of pine resin.
Charmed by the sirens they fell under the spell of the place. Oblivious to the difficulties involved, they took on the task of building a resort that would enable every guest who respected themselves and nature to enjoy a dream holiday.
