Kastelorizo is Greece's eastern extremity, 72 miles from Rhodes. It is only one mile from the southern coast of Turkey, and 150 miles from Cyprus. This is a small and rocky island, and yet at the beginning of the present century it had 15000 inhabitants. Today, of all this nothing remains  except its houses, in ruins as the result of fire and bombing. Those close to the harbour have been repaired and are gleaming white with their doors and window-frames painted in bright colours.

Today, the permanent residents, who number just over 220, are mostly fisherman. Most of the people have emigrated to Australia.

Kastelorizo can be reached from Rhodes by boat or air.

The islet Rho, near Kastelorizo, had until a few years ago a single inhabitant, who quarded it and up the Greek flag every morning. This was Despina Achladioti, the Lady of Rho, as she was known.

Mykonos Island


Ιt is the cosmopolitan center of the Cyclades Complex. Its reputation has spread during the last years due to its unique landscape, its archaelogical sites, its cosmopolitan environment and its magnificent beaches.

White-washed, cube-shaped houses are scattered all over the island, narrow streets in the town, chapels and picturesque tavernas hide among art galleries and stores selling jewellery, souvenirs etc.

Trends that sweep through the international scene are born in the intense nightlife of this modern resort.

An island of tempting and tempestuous reputation such as Mykonos, with high tourism and a rather superficial lifestyle, inevitably has both fans and critics.

But even the most unsuspecting visitor immediately realizes that Mykonos is not only a crazy “bon-viveur”, but also an attractive, picturesque island with white Chora aside the crystal-clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea.

Direct international charter flights and regular domestic flights from Athens serve frequently, during summer, the airport of Mykonos.

Because it is so famous, Mykonos gets really overcrowded during high season but for those who enjoy the crowd, great fun and all night long entertainment, Mykonos is the ideal place for holidays.

Have a wonderful time...
