Explore Astypalaia

Many of the Dodecanese islands were called by the Ancient Greeks with nicknames that were illustrative of each island’s particularities.
Astypalaea (Astypalaia) was known as “the bank of the Gods”; a nickname that can tell quite a lot on how appealing this blessed small piece of land has always been.

The island and its hospitable inhabitants wish you a pleasant stay. For those who come first … for those of you who visit us regularly to discover the countless, obvious and hidden, Astypalaia’s beauty of mountains and seas, in cities and in the countryside, promise a welcoming and memorable stay.
