Nestled at an unspoiled natural landscape; "Archontiko" offers since 2013 unique moments of relaxation in traditional luxury! Ideal destination for the ultimate getaway as well as the ideal scenery for a true cozy stay with family or friends!

The space
“Archontiko” is the flagship domicile of our property, named "Georgilas Cave House". It is about a unique Cycladic Tower House aged since late 19th century, having been quite recently renovated with respect to its unique features and with lots of love and attention. Back in 1887, it was owned by the big family of an orthodox priest and it was mainly open to guests for any short of formal religious occasions and fetes!
Its construction was based on the dictates of climate, the particular housing requirements and the materials available to the local masons. In particular, the build is rising in three levels, communicating through stone staircases: the individual utility-room, named “Loutro” (first level), the main house (second level) and the attic (third level). The second and the third level are nestled at an elevated position and, but for their earth-toned colouring, they are well secluded and not easily visible from afar, ensuring thus privacy, calmness and direct contact with nature!
The build’s interior is a blending of modern comfort and island tradition: “Archontiko” comprises 3 high ceiling bedrooms, with en-suite bathroom, wardrobe and private entrance each, as well as a spacious lobby, a fully equipped kitchen, a spiral staircase leading to the attic, and two large private verandas with pool - garden view, and panoramic view to the valley. The decoration is mainly rustic and elegant with antiques and handmade furniture. “Archontiko” has, of course, direct access to the 1 acre cobbled garden and the 9 acre citrus grove.
“Archontiko” was recently been refurbished and converted into an impressive mansion, which is able to accommodate comfortably large groups of guests.

Where you’ll be

Galini, Egeo, Greece

Under the property it is extending a 9 acre privately - owned citrus grove, which encompasses over 500 trees, an impressive and still active water-well and a small livestock of goats, sheep and chickens. This area is located at the west side of the fertile valley of Eggares, which is a highly productive farming site in the entire island.
Furthermore, in a distance of 500 m it is found Galini Village, which is a small settlement with flowery alleyways, picturesque little dwellings, friendly locals and a rich agricultural production and intense cultural life!
•Local services: groceries
•Local businesses: family taverns, traditional coffee shop
•Local attractions: the byzantine chapel devoted to “Panaghia Ataliotissa”, the summer festival on 15 August, the carnival

Finally, Amitis beach is located at the “eye of the winds”, meaning that when it is beaten by the north winds huge waves are breaking on the seafront offering a spectacular seascape of wild beauty. For those who love the waves it is the ideal setting for kite surfing. The others can enjoy the long stretch of sand!
•Monument view: The byzantine orthodox chapel devoted to “Panaghia” (in greek to Our Lady), aged since 11th century A.D.
•Valley & Mountain view: The verdant “Eggares Valley” being at the bottom of the Mountain of “Korakia”.
