In the northern part of Karpathos, the traditional ʽgreenʼ cottage Iliahtida is a sea-front little paradise and accessible only by sea. You will spend authentic and original holidays in a beautiful bay, with only a few neighboring houses of local fishermen. Transfers, full board and everything you may need is provided by Manolis, the polite owner.

This old family house has been restored with respect to the local architecture and environment. It operates only with renewable energy, in complete autonomy for the comfort and daily needs of 4 people (electricity, hot water, internet via satellite).
The cottage is functional and well equipped, decorated and furnished in the special traditional style of the island. The uniqueness of this traditional accommodation is that the rooms, even the bathroom, do not communicate with each other. You enter the rooms from the verandah. The bedroom consists of a traditional wooden framed double bed (soufa) and two sofa beds (pagues).
A traditional trail of 8 km leads to the nearest dirt-road and after 6 km you arrive at the village of Olympos.
