Live Greek maritime history in Mare Monte Luxury Suites, a luxury home away from home
Formerly owned by seafaring aristocrats, this 18th-century mansion has been lovingly restored by Maria and her family. Inside Mare Monte Luxury Suites’ old stone walls, chandeliers glitter in the abundant sunlight, casting their glow onto the elegant period furniture below. Feel the eternal beauty of the Mediterranean on the lush garden terrace, where a jacuzzi and a deep blue pool provide infinite opportunities for relaxation. Enjoy a moment of pure bliss in one of the hammocks and as the sun sets, head to the rustic bar to sip chilled wine and bask in the tranquillity of the evening.
Maria and her family’s love for their home shows in the personal touches and hints of character scattered throughout this fine place. Their tireless devotion to creating an atmosphere of peace and intimacy in every room makes the Mare Monte Luxury Suites an opulent sanctuary.

Services and facilities
Taste the flavors
The Pool Bar
The pool bar is open until midnight and serves luscious fruit juices, refreshing cocktails and wines to accompany languorous afternoons spent reclining on a sun-lounger. If relaxation makes you hungry, order a crispy salad or plate of cold meats to savour in the shade before cooling off in the pool.
Maria and her team will assit you for order in classic Greek dishes and fresh seafood from local restaurants.
Breakfast is composed of a mix of locally-sourced produce and ingredients cultivated in the hotel’s garden. Think home-grown honey on your freshly-baked pastry or local yoghurt, just-squeezed orange juice and Greek speciality cold coffee, “cappuccino freddo”. The kitchen is happy to whip up some eggs from the local farm into a “strapatsada” – a mouth-watering dish featuring tomatoes, cheese and herbs. The flavours of breakfast taste even more delicious as they are enjoyed in the beautiful green garden among the flowers and trees.
