The renaissance began when Venetian traders discovered ancient Greek texts in Constatinople. A holiday break in Kastro, once part of the trading network connecting Venice to Constantinople, is an opportunity to visit that very moment in history.
Our house, your accommodation, just inside the town's main gate, sits at the very heart of an architectural monument.
The ingenious 14th century design uses meter thick walls to insulate, and natural air currents to keep the house cool on the hottest days. Deep window and door alcoves trap the brilliant Aegean light to spectacular effect.

A mezzanine above the ground floor has a two seat sofa that converts into a single bed.
While maintaining the purity of the house's ancient character we have not forgotten you live in a modern world. So we offer broadband wireless internet so that you can be live on your social networks, download movies and music, communicate with the world and keep an eye on your business and affairs at home.

I have stayed in house a number of times over the last 30 years. It is like stepping back in time. If you want a relaxing, authentic Greek experience-this is the place. The house has been updated in the last few years-more mod cons.Perfect base for hiking, swimming and sight seeing.And perfect for writing and relaxing. Close to the bus stop. Honestly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.
