In a remote corner of mainland Greece, between pine forests and the sparkling Aegean, the Thalatta Seaside Hotel is a sleek family-friendly boutique beach property. The main aim here is to switch down a few gears; it may be a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Athens, but once you arrive you don’t need to leave. Stretch out by the pool or lounge under a parasol on the long pebble beach, rent a transparent kayak to paddle over the turquoise waves, or lose yourself in a book from the beach library. Children are made more than welcome with clubs, activities, puppet shows and horseback riding, and they get nutritional kid-friendly food. Parents can take time out with the babysitting service to sample the cocktail gems created by the hotel’s mixologist, indulge in a treatment at the spa, enjoy an intimate dinner on the beach, or tap into the slow food philosophy at Baxe, located on the upper level deck next to an open-air fireplace. All rooms offer sea views from sizable balconies, and the apartment-style layout encompasses a sitting area and a mini-fridge. The calming color scheme complements the Aegean and the surrounding forest, with pale wooden furniture set against pops of the same greens and turquoises you’ll see from your balcony.
In the Area
You could spend all your time soaking up the Greek sunshine and bathing in the blue water, but if you want to explore further, there’s plenty to do in the area. For hikers there are easy trails and more challenging treks through forests, ravines and clear water streams. A favorite is a hike to the Drimonas Waterfalls for a natural shower under the cascade (the hotel can have a picnic waiting for you there). Take a trip to one of the ancient nearby villages, such as Agia Anna or Gouvies, or cool down on a chartered yacht or rent a transparent kayak for a guided tour of a nearby island.
How to Get There
Beautiful property on a secluded beach. Modern and very clean. Bathroom is great with a double shower. Sitting room on the bottom with bedroom on top, just separated by two steps. Balcony with a few chairs to watch the sunset. The pool is lovely with lots of chairs. Very proper staff with great manners. You can tell they have been taught well. Breakfast is bountiful with a good selection, even for vegetarians. I would come back again.
This is the place where you realize that the people there are doing serious business by offering top quality and value for money service. So friendly and polite stuff, so customer oriented service. Smiling people, ALL of them, from the room cleaner to the waitress, the receptionist and everyone. Kids loved it, there is stuff and places always to amuse them. I remember this very nice man Mr. Stefanos checking on us while we were eating whether we are happy and making fun with the kids. Huge and always shining clean family suite with all comforts. The pool is so clean and without chemicals, I suppose they use more friendly cleaning methods. Peaceful restaurant on the sand beach serving delicius fish meze. Congratulations guys I have nothing bad to say for this place. Just amazing.
I am a repeater to this beautiful family resort not only because it’s only a 2h drive from Athens but also because i love the architecture and the friendly vibes of this unique hotel by the sea. The rooms are very clean and spacious and you have many options for food: main restaurant by the pool for casual chic style, Meze restaurant right in front of the beach for comfort and seafood and Baxe at the terrace (my fav spot) where you may enjoy gastronomy dishes.
This place is ideal for kids as there are many activities specially crafted for them.
