The Metohi Kindelis main building is a 16th century farm and guest house restored to maintain the unique, traditional Venetian architecture.

Each guesthouse comes equipped with it’s own private pool, patio and garden. There is also a fully equipped kitchen in every unit for those who enjoy experimenting with the local ingredients and a fridge stocked with the organic produce of the farm (including an abundance of avocados!) and other local producers to prepare a rich healthy breakfast.
A picturesque, adults-only beach hideaway on the island of Kos, OKU is a luxurious Greek retreat inspired by the traditional Greek village experience, combining a modern, minimalist foundation with raw and natural design elements.

Ekies All Senses Resort, Halkidiki
Ekies All Senses Resort is an award winning hotel located on the Sithonia peninsula of Halkidiki, in the unspoilt Vourvourou Bay. Also being a member of Design Hotels, it has become “the ultimate destination for those who seek a true “barefoot luxury” experience.”
Their incredible Greek food is another of the many reasons to stay. “With locally-produced ingredients, fresh fish caught every day from local fishermen, and infinite inspiration from the rich variety of Greek cuisine, something tells us that you will fall in love with our cuisine as well.”

A visit to their signature restaurant, Cremnos, also shouldn’t go amiss. “The idea behind “Cremnos” is to create a nutritional haven where we derive our inspiration from the traditional Greek lunching and dining and reinterpret old time classic recipes with a new age twist. We use handpicked, organic, fresh ingredients from small farms around the island. Our chef and his team base their menus on authentic Cretan cuisine and dietary habits that are well known around the world to be beneficial to our health.”
