PARADISE LOST IN THE AEGEAN SEA

Kastelorizo made Parisian architect Marie Rivalant fall in love three times: first with the island of Kastelorizo itself, then with a man living there and finally with an old, waterfront mansion. So she moved to the island, married the man, and bought the mansion. Luckily for us, she decided to turn the mansion into one of Greece’s most charming boutique hotels.

Marie created a delightful little haven with vibrantly coloured bedrooms looking out over the harbor and a sunbathing terrace on the quayside. The house was cute enough as it was, and Marie wisely kept it that way, adding just color, arty bathrooms and oriental details, all giving it a touch of the exotic. Bedrooms are spread over two floors, several light and airy ones facing the sea, and others that have a more oriental feel, with mattresses on a sleeping platform. A magnificent suite occupies the ground floor. Breakfast, a blend of Greek, French and Turkish delicacies, is served on the terrace, and during the day you can sunbathe in front of the house and dip into the clear waters or swim across the bay to the island’s hot spot for a drink.

Its simple unpretentious atmosphere is what makes Mediterranean Kastelorizo so special.
