We felt as though we were special guests in a gracious historic home. Panayiota, and her son Akis, take very seriously the description of their delightful boutique establishment as a “family hotel”. It doesn’t feel like a hotel at all. It feels like your home, where a member of the family who cares about your every need and want is always there - in the background. They are warm and gentle people. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Their wish for you to enjoy your stay is genuine.
Probably, Aetoma was originally a wealthy merchant’s city residence; and was later turned into a hotel of 5 spacious and individual rooms plus a grand central reception, sitting and dining area. Aetoma is ideally located in the charming historic quartier of Nafplion, beside a relatively quiet old church square, yet a stone’s throw from all the life and attractions of the city. There were 4 of us, and we were fortunate to have booked the front 2 rooms. They have adjoining balconies, and face onto the square. Panayiota and Akis would bring afternoon tea and home-made cake to our balconies. We’d sit outside in the warm breeze and watch the locals go about their lives, until we were revived and ready to explore more of Nafplion.
Nafplion is a most interesting, lively small city. Stay 3 - 5 days; there is plenty to see and do both within the city and on day tours to ancient ruins, the beaches and wineries. And stay at Aetoma Family Hotel. We wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In Nafplion, a city of magical breeze and unique history, a revamped mansion of the 18th century combines the beauty of the past with the comforts of the present and creates the ideal environment for relaxation and exceptional holidays. The neoclassical luxury appears in each of the 5 hospitable rooms, one of which seems like it slipped silently and took its place in the loft. Visitors feel immediately that they have found both a familiar and unique place. ... more less
