The Island of Aromas

When you arrive at Spetses, you will enjoy mysterious aromas pouring gently from the lush courtyards of the houses. Undoubtedly, Spetses is the island of aromas. Spetses, an island with cultural and naval tradition, distinguishes for its picturesque character and its traditional identity. The Posidonion Hotel, the jewel of the island, aristocratically stands in front of the  beautiful square with the statue of Laskarina Bouboulina, one of the greatest heroines of the Independence War of 1821.  Lush verdant forests, emerald waters and picturesque houses create images of pristine beauty. And your journey begins from the charming down of Ntapia with the distinctive pebbled  courtyards and its beatiful “balcony” overlooking the endless blue of the Saronic Gulf. Walking along the seafront cobblestone promenade, you will be enchanted from the cannons decorating the chapel of Agios Mamas, the beautiful white and blue seafarer houses of Agios Nikolaos, the romantic chaises riding along the waterfront, the traditional shipyards of Palio Limani and the endless view of the fishing caiques sailing from the old harbour. Lose your way among the narrow alleyways behind the majestic beauty of the seaside promenade! Discover the discreet charm of the whitewashed houses with the pebbled mosaics, the blue windows and the bougainvillea courtyards that transform your promenade in an adventure overlooking an unexpected view to the endless blue of the Aegean sea. Are you ready to unveil the mysteries of Spetses?
