Discover Astypalea’s warm island welcome, enjoy authentic hospitality and services and create memories that will last a lifetime… all while staying at the Kallichoron Art Boutique Hotel!
Life is all about experiences and doing things that make us happy, so how about choosing the Greek island of Astypalea for your next getaway?
Astypalea is a truly authentic island that holds on to tradition but blends a cosmopolitan air; perfect for those that seek a unique destination. Many call it the hidden gem of the Aegean Sea and we can’t but wholeheartedly agree.
Kallichoron Art Boutique Hotel reflects this in its essence, a hotel where the modern world meets traditional island charm. It’s a Green Key eco-labelled Art Boutique Hotel situated in the Chora of Astypalea that offers breathtaking views of the island’s landscape and premium services, all with a local’s touch.
All the studios and apartments are characterized by comfort and elegance and fitted with all the amenities you may need. The view is stunning, and you won’t be able to take your eyes off the charming settlement of Chora, the Venetian Castle, and the sea, morning or night!
Grandma’s Breakfast for culinary enthusiasts
Breakfast plays an integral part of Kallichoron’s hospitality. Fresh, locally sourced ingredients are used for the award-winning “Grandma’s Breakfast”, curated by a dietician-nutritionist and made with care, as one would enjoy at home. All delivered to your room, you can make your breakfast choices using Kallichoron’s phone application, or using the tablets installed in your room.
Sustainability is also in the forefront as the only eco-labelled hotel on Astypalea, Kallichoron ensures responsible visitation in the practices and hotel running procedures. It’s a motion and duty to preserve the authentic quality of life and ensure our treasured places and culinary treasures remain forever mighty.
Their policy “Kallichoron Goes Green” is a pledge the hotel makes to operate in perfect harmony with the environment. Their local community involvement and “Room2Give” CSR initiative donates part of the reservation earnings to various local causes annually, making Kallichoron a socially responsible business.
Explore Astypalea by bike
Increasing in popularity, Astypalea can also be discovered by bicycle. Its terrain is still virgin yet manageable to be fully explored on two wheels and Kallichoron caters for such a choice as well. Cyclist and hiker’s needs are met, as they are part of the Bike Friendly Hotels network and aside from various route suggestions, Kallichoron’s offering includes bike and gear hire, the organization of excursions as well as customised programs based on ability.
Whether you are in a competitive or exploration mood, discover Astypalea on your e-bike or mountain bike with a backdrop of the endless blue of the Aegean.
The past year has been transformational for us all, but rest assured Kallichoron has implemented the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene procedures as per the recommendations by WHO and the Greek Government guidelines, all in consultation with Be Safer leading hygiene experts and certified health protocols for the safety of guests and staff members.
The contactless stay procedures in place reduce risk of contamination whilst the “Travel Flex” policy facilitates arrangements even if they need to change unexpectedly. Kallichoron’s dedicated COVID-19 response webpage is regularly updated and will help you stay abreast of the latest information. Fortunately, there are still no reported COVID-19 cases on Astypalea Island.
