Kantounia offers touristic accommodation in two independent traditional stone buildings in the historical area of Kalamoti, one of the most well-known mastic villages of Chios.
They were named Kantounia, which means ‘cobblestoned streets’, reflecting the character of the medieval settlement that charms the visitor with its routes. The external wall of both buildings is part of the fortifications of the village, which date from the Genoese times (14th century). Restored carefully by the owner – and architect – Maria Stefanaki, they preserve their original architectural elements and bring forward the character of the village. With their appropriate modern furnishing and services, they combine luxury and comfort with the traditional element.
The village lies 25 km away from the city of Chios (Hora), which accounts for half an hour by car. You will love its architecture, local flavours, orchards and tranquillity! From here you can access very easily the famous Komi beach, as well as other beautiful beaches and villages in Southern Chios. The location of Kantounia is ideal for calm holidays, explorations around the island and for getting to know better the life, the festivals and customs of a Chian village.
Kantounia @ Agia Kyriaki is a stone building just across St.Kyriaki church and can host up to 5 people.
