The fondest memories of my life definitely spring from our family’s vacations in Patmos.
In the morning, after a yummy and highly nutritious breakfast comprised of local, pure products, we head off for the beach.

After the swim, we either return home for lunch or visit one of the more than fifty local taverns and enjoy fresh fish or meat, salads and numerous other delicious, traditional recipes.
In the afternoons, we usually relax with a short siesta or lounge about the pool and, right before and during sunset, we take a refreshing stroll along Patmos’ dreamlike pathways.
At night, we enjoy a romantic, candlelit dinner served indoors or outside, next to the pool and the various villa’s verandas. We can also simply decide to tour the island’s attractions such as the port of Skala, the medieval castle monastery of Chora, the picturesque villages and many seafront restaurants and bars.
