Hotel Bitzaro Palace details
“Full of old-world charm, the Hotel Bitzaro Palace makes for the perfect Greek Island getaway.”
This laid-back hotel combines all the staples of authentic Greek design. Think sugar cube buildings, whitewashed walls and terracotta tiled roofs. What’s more, the property is cocooned by sweet-smelling gardens, giving it a real away-from-it-all feel. That said, it’s just a short stroll from the beach and the heart of Kalamaki.
Inside, the rooms are simple but stylish. White walls and tiled floors provide the backdrop, while big beds dressed in yellow linen keep things cosy. You get your own balcony or terrace, too. Furnished with a table and chairs, it’s a great spot to take in the garden views. Modern touches like air-conditioning provide the trimmings.
Outside, the pool is framed by neat lawns and shady palms. Add a poolside bar serving up drinks, snacks and ice-cream to the mix and you can quite easily spend all day here. In terms of entertaining the children, meanwhile, there’s a playground.
On the dining front, the restaurant comes with a pretty al fresco terrace fringed by bright pink bougainvillea – a set-up that makes mealtimes an occasion to linger over. Menu-wise, expect different options every night. Homemade soups, colourful salads and international favourites are the mainstays, while regular theme nights offer up the chance to try regional specialities. If you fancy eating out, meanwhile, head for the beachfront to try some of the freshest seafood around.
