  • [01] Discover the eastern Aegean-Chios

    It is undoubtedly the most fragrant island of the Aegean. The citrus, mastic and wild herb trees all over the island diffuse inebriating perfumes hardly encountered elsewhere.

    The beaches of the island - Mavra Volia and Daskalopetra Elinta, Lithi, Giosonas and Nagos, Komi and Limnia - are famous for their crystal clear waters.

    A visit to the medieval, well preserved villages of the island is a reminiscent of other eras. Among these villages are the famous Mastichoria and Pyrgi with the unique architecture, Mesta, Olympi, Kalamoti, Armolia, and Desa. The island's medieval castles in the town as well as the villages of Volissos, Armolia, and Kampia are also worth visiting.

    People interested in religious tourism can visit Nea Moni, dedicated to the Assumption, a remarkable monument of the 11th century, that has been included in the UNESCO list of monuments of world heritage. Panagia Krina (12th century) is located at Vavilous island, and St. Markella with the known icons, are also reference points for visitors.

    The trademark of the island is the mastic tree that does not grow anywhere else in the world.

    You can visit Chios in September and October taking advantage of the special discounts offered by the island's hoteliers.
