Our hotel is just 900 meters from thε famous sandy beach of Matala in a quiet valley. Matala became famous by the hippies. Joni Mitchel and many other artists have been inspired by the unique atmosphere of the small bay. Here Zeus appeared from the sea with the Phoenician princess Europa, who gave her name to our continent. The Romans built tremendous grave caves here in the Rocks.  It was precisely in these caves that the hippies founded their alternative Eldorado. Today Matala is a lively yet tranquil seaside resort. The beautiful sandy beach is surrounded by tavernas and bars.

The beach is 250m long and 45m wide. Matala it is one of just over 400 beaches in Greece that has been awarded a Blue Flag. This exclusive eco-label is given to beaches that offer cleanliness and safe bathing areas and has strict criteria dealing with water quality, environmental management and safety. There is a lifeguard and first aid facilities, as well as toilets and a shower. Near the beach are opportunities for learning about environmental projects, such as with Archelon, the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece, and the beaches of Matala, Kommos and Red Beach come under Natura 2000, a European Union network of nature protection areas established to assure the long-term survival of Europe's most valuable and threatened species and habitats.

The romantic 'Red Beach' can only be reached via a mountain path. Totalling 14km, Kommos Beach is about 5 minutes away by car. From here you have a magnificent overview of the clear blue sea to the enormous Ida Mountains. But just as many opportunities for walking, discovering cultural and sports can be found in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.
