Hotel history

If you were to visit this exact spot in the beginning of the 1900s, you would find a soap factory where our hotel stands today. We continue this tradition by offering our customers bars of soap made from pure olive oil. Nearby, one would find the house of the mayor of Levitho and the radiant church of Saint Catherine, which hosts a grandiose celebration every year on 25 November.

Today, the hotel is built on the same space and features a small romantic chapel that preserves some of the ancient icons from the church that stood here before the 1953 earthquake, in addition to the precious icon of Saint Irene Chrysovalantou. There is a grandiose festival twice a year, on 25 November in celebration of Saint Catherine and on 28 July in celebration of Saint Irene of Milous, where apples are distributed, a symbol of fertility and Adam and Eve’s disobedience. The chapel is also available for wedding bookings.
