Being just 1500m from the border with Mount Athos, we think some of the other-worldly atmosphere must have leaked from the Holy Mountain into this rather special hotel.

Surrounded by a lush garden full of flowering shrubs and trees, the hotel's 25 rooms and bungalows blend in perfectly with their environment. They are simply furnished with taste and care - expect whitewashed charm, not luxury. Twin or double-bedded, all possess AC, mini-bar, hairdryer, fridge and shower room. Bungalow rooms are ground floor with a private terrace over the garden. 8 rooms to the rear are first floor with fine views across the sea to Sithonia from their wooden balconies.

The spacious Suites are also bungalow style and have a living room with two built-in sofa beds plus a lovely large covered wooden terrace with sea views over the garden.

The main building is an airy, atmospheric reception, lounge and resident's bar, furnished with antiques, icons and Orthodox pieces. To the front there is a well regarded terrace restaurant. Directly above the sea is the lawned pool area, low-key pool bar and decking where you can just sit and admire the views. The beach is rocky, but the hotel has a jetty with a ladder into clear deep water.

A most civilised and almost alternative retreat for total relaxation. It is 1 km (15 mins walk) via a narrow unmade road to the more earthly delights of Ouranoupolis and sandy beaches.
