The Space:
Kastelorizo is the ideal destination to experience holidays in an authentic way. It stands proudly among 2 continents. A brilliant spot in the Mediterranean just 2 miles from Kas, Turkey, a crossroads of civilizations that do not take borders into account.

The harbor of the island - a colorful amphitheater - welcomes you and its outstanding beauty leaves you breathless. History and legends are passing from one generation to the next one and from one country to another. Same background as always, the deep blue color of the Aegean sea. Several landmarks are found on this little island, starting from Castello Rosso and the Fort of the Nights, the famous Lycian Tomb of the 4th century BC, the Cathedral of Saints Constantine and Helena (1835) with the gothic elements, the Santrapeia Urban School of 1903, Palaeokastro and the most incredible cave of the Mediteranean. The famous Blue Cave, inside of it, the sunlight is refracted through the water, scattering the light and turning the sea into a pool of vibrant turquoise blue so beautiful that visitors have described it as overwhelming.

Amongst the island's beautiful mansions, the ''Red House'', or else ''Casa Rossa'' with its huge bougainvillea, revives thanks to the personal work and effort of the owner, only 1 minute away from the center of the harbor and the old market.

In 1875, the 1st floor of the house was built on a medieval building. Although it passed through many hands in 2006 and was bought by the current owners and in 2010 began its renovation. At all 3 levels of this house, a journey of civilizations and emotions begins and ends every day, through explosive mysterious colors and items.

The Neighborhood:
''Away from it all, Kastellorizo is (with the exception of the nearby islet of Strongyli) the easternmost Greek island and is situated in the Eastern Mediterranean. It lies about 2 km from the Anatolian coastal town of Kaş, more or less halfway between Rhodes and Antalya. The island's official name, Megisti means "biggest" or "greatest", but at only 11.98 km2 in area, it is the smallest of the Dodecanese. The name, however, refers to the fact that it is the largest of the small archipelago. This name was used in antiquity, but is now rarely used in Greek, the name Kastellórizo being common since the twelfth century.

The houses of the town are slender and characterised by wooden balconies and windows of the Anatolian type. At the entrance to the harbour, on the east side, stand the single story remnants of the former Italian government house (palazzina della delegazione), erected in 1926 by the Italian architect Florestano Di Fausto, who also designed some of the most important buildings of the Italian occupation in Dodecanese. Nearby is the island's former Ottoman mosque which dates from the second half of the 18th century and which has been restored and re-opened as a museum since 2007. From here starts the town's quay, which runs along all three sides of the harbour. The central square —Platia Ethelonton Kastellórizou ("Kastellorizo Volunteers' Square")—lies at the midpoint of the eastern side, near the vessel dock.

Above the quay on the eastern side there is a pathway which leads to the Castle of the Knights (14th century). Of it remain the curtain wall, part of a square tower, the remains of a cylindrical tower at the east corner, and toward the sea another cylindrical tower. A Doric inscription, carved in the rock, attests to the existence of an earlier fortress here during Antiquity. Inside the tower there is a large covered cistern.

Ascending the steps on the eastern side of the town, one reaches the suburb of Horafia, where there is a square surrounded by the Church of St. George (1906), with a high dome of Byzantine type, and the Cathedral of Saints Constantine and Helena (1835). It has three naves divided by monolithic granite columns from the temple of Apollo Lykios in Patara (Anatolia). The columns carry ogival arches. Further east is the small bay known as Mandraki, the secondary harbor of the island.

West of the town, beyond the summit of the island known as Vigla (270 m), stands Palaiokastro (old castle), the island's ancient acropolis. This fortified elevation has classical origins. In its interior stand an ancient tower, built with square limestone blocks, and large water cisterns. Carved on the base of the castle there is also a Doric inscription, dating back to the 4th or 3rd centuries BC, with references to Megiste (the ancient name of Kastellorizo) and its dependence on Rhodes. On the east side there are remnants of a gateway, or Propylaea.
Getting Around:
The island is connected with Rhodes, Piraeus and Kaş by ferry.

Air connection is provided by Olympic Air, which operates from Kastellorizo Airport. There is one small bus in service on Kastellorizo and it is used to collect tourists from the airport.

House Rules:
• Check-in time is 2PM - 10PM
