The story of the hotel began in the early 80s when the first 4 apartments were built. 4 villas...In the beginning of 90’s there were 6 villas and it was time to change and invest to a new concept. Tourism was turning into a big business, but small and elegant hotels are the traditional accommodation that gives the customer the true local feeling. Every year we give all of our efforts to make your holidays unforgettable and enjoyable as never before.

The hote is situated in a quiet area with plenty of restaurants and shops. You may walk near the beach and enjoy the sunset with great view.
