Fatoş is a guide in Lesbos and works for Mitilene tours (
Together, with her we, traveled around and she showed us some amazing places.
The first thing Daphne does is start mixing the group, so everybody is forced to work with someone else. Together with Daphne and her female cooks, you suddenly feel yourself a master chef preparing yet another Greek dish.
The fun part is that in the evening all the participants, together with their families, sit around the table next to the sea and share the food they all prepared together that afternoon.
So Daphne and Iannis try to help these refugees by providing them with the money they collect through their workshops.
Believe me, you definitely will not be bored when you stay at their place, but of course there is so much more to do and to see in Lesbos.
You do not know who sleeps in the room next to you and in the morning the first thing to do is occupy your chair next to the swimming pool, so you have the best place to “enjoy” your holiday. At least once a week, Daphne organizes a cooking course where she teaches you some easy, but very original Greek recipes.
So you sign up for it together with your daughter or wife and go there.
Iannis, on the other hand, is famous for the hikes he organizes. he takes the people who signed up for the hike to some nice and interesting places on the island. It can be about Greek mythology, olive production or some plants or birds you see while walking, but one thing is for sure; his conversations are fun and interesting and believe me, it’s never boring to be out with Iannis.
The whole hotel was empty and wrecked except for one room; here was a grand piano standing and waiting.
It was as if the musician just went to the bar to get one of the famous cocktails they served and then the music would continue.
The owners, Iannis and Daphne, opened their hotel 14 years ago.
With their own characteristic and warm charm, they have an eye for all of the guests who stay in their hotel.
In the background you can find the remains of a very stately hotel: the Sarlıca palace hotel, which was built in the early 1900s.
