Activities Hiking Unusual stay


On the north easterly side of the island, just 25 minutes from the town of Chios, you can find the historical village of Kardamila. Dimitris and Kiki had always had a dream to revive the old medieval neighborhood, the abandoned “Spilia”.

They restored four small, traditional houses, paying respect to the traditions and using good taste for creating a unique environment for those who seek peace, quite and rest.

A journey through the times begins while climbing the pathway from the central town square. Most houses are built with wood and stone. In the highest point of the settlement one can see that all the restored buildings have followed the local architecture.

Each house has its own unique character, the decoration has been done with loving care and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming.

Start your day with a filling breakfast made by Kiki, it includes local produce, home made marmalades, pies and fresh fruit.

Enjoy your coffee whilst gazing at the village, the beautiful fields and the infinite Aegean.

Frederic B. / France / July, 2010
Nous avons été très satisfaits de notre séjour. Le logement est plein de charme et les propriétaires sont accueillants et agréables. Nous avons apprécié le calme du site et les petits déjeuners très copieux de Kiki.

Olivier B. / France / August, 2007
Nous avons été enchantés par Spilia, tant par les lieux en eux-mêmes, notre chambre, que par les personnes qui s'en occupent et leur donnent vie avec efficacité et grande amabilité, sans oublier les fameux petits-déjeuners et les concerts organisés dans l'amphitéâtre de Spilia.
