NOSTOS

OVERVIEW

Nostos (νόστος) the beautiful Greek word that captures the feeling of longing to return, the sense of homecoming. This is the name of these little cozy studios nestled at the southeast coast of Santorini that eagerly await their visitors, coming back year after year, to reclaim the spot they call their summer home, their very own place in the sun. This family owned hotel’s philosophy is centered on this exact feeling of coming back to a place where time takes a different stride, and nostalgia becomes one with the comfort of relaxed leisure.

At arm’s reach from the waters of Saint George and only a 3 min drive from the famous Vlyhada beach, these 12 studios that can host up to three persons each, have become, over the years, the quintessence of what genuine Cycladic holidays have always been, before boutique hotels and impressive resorts were ever a trend. Established in the eighties, the recently renovated complex still holds an aura of old-school charm, combined with a dashing swimming pool, spacious rooms and private balconies each facing the sea. All the while, the place has achieved in maintaining a honey feel enhanced by its organic profile, with fresh figs, grapes and baby tomatoes offered straight from the garden. The island climate keeps mosquitoes away, so open windows and breezy, starry nights are guaranteed.
