    Lovely 3 days of relaxation

    Lovely hotel, great staff with a really welcoming approach. We loved the area, the village was small with a few really good places to eat. The hotel had everything you need for a relaxing stay. Breakfast was good although the coffee was a bit of a miss or hit. My only (minor) criticism, is that access by car is very tight, we ended up leaving ours in the village car park, which was not a problem but meant you had a hilly 10 minute walk.

    Εντυπωσιακό κτήριο . Αρκετό περπάτημα για να ανέβεις στενά δρομάκια για το αυτοκίνητο και δύσκολο αν έρχεται δεύτερο αμάξι .

    Excellent winter weekend destination

    It was a weekend for celebration. The hotel gave us all what we needed, comfortable room, nice relaxed lobby with fireplace and comfortable sofas. We appreciated the wine recommendation from the staff and most of all the quality food in the adjacent “gefsikratoras” restaurant. We would gladly come back.

    Canadian Senior Couples enjoying Greece

    A very interesting area and facility. Ours was a short overnight stay, but very pleasant and enjoyable. Breakfast offering was substantial and we enjoyed a sunny, outside setting. Good value for the money.

    A great place in Portaria

    We stay at this great place for 3 nights. Hotel is rather new. Very clean. We took a family room that has 2 double bed (one is at the attic). Breakfast is very good, lots of options. The pool is nice, the kids loved it. Only downside of this hotel is the narrow path that leads to it, but once you do it once, it's OK. I would get back to this place for sure. Portrait is a great place to stay. Many options to have lunch or dinner and also cafe with great deserts.

    The village and view were very picturesque. The hotel and pool are slightly less grand than they appear on the pictures, but the family room with two double bed was great for two friends sharing, but would be cramped for a whole family.
