Focusing on the latest developments in hospitality and respecting the needs of modern travelers, the Vigla Hotel, located in the traditional village of Tholaria on the Cycladic island of Amorgos, is welcoming the summer season with a full renovation of its rooms and a Greek gastronomic experience.
Overlooking the bay of Aegiali, the Vigla Hotel offers sunny rooms complete with private balcony or porch in true Cycladic style, modern facilities, a strong Wi-Fi connection and breathtaking views. But the three-star Vigla’s best kept secret is its cuisine.
Prepared with the finest local products, the freshest vegetables picked right out of the hotel garden and extra virgin olive oil from the family’s olive groves, dishes include stuffed zucchini buds, organic fava hand ground with a traditional stone mill, myzithra cheese, and homemade bread, jam, liqueurs and spoon sweets using fruit from their orchards – a promising foodie experience with a panoramic view to the sea.
Besides being an ideal location for families and couples, Vigla can also organize special wedding receptions by the pool overlooking the bay while guests are welcomed with the traditional wedding sweet: the xerotigano or pasteli on a lemon leaf.
Featured in Luc Besson’s film The Big Blue, Amorgos is the easternmost island of the Cyclades offering some of the world’s finest swimming and diving locations.
