“Return Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

I have just returned from visiting Chrisoula and the crew at the Ganimede hotel and Miramare studios for the second time this year. Set in the shimmering light of the Gulf of Corinth, with Mount Parnassus in the background these two hotels are both special and magical.

Imagine a secluded courtyard surrounded by lush vegetation : around this intimate space is the fantastic hotel - a haven of quiet and tranquillity. In the garden are served the most exquisite and splendid breakfasts. In the evening, at the Ganimede, are also served relaxing cocktails - a wonderful aperitif before dinner. All these delights are prepared and overseen by Chrisoula and her wonderful team including Sia , Anna, Vasiliki and Elena.

Thank you, ladies for all your kindnesses and friendship. You make me feel more like a member of your extended family rather than a guest!

This place is addictive : you won't want to leave! The seduction is total, at least as much for those who, like myself, have already made that unforgettable visit to the Ganimede hotel or Miramare studios as for those visitors with the delights of that wonderful experience still awaiting them.

Xilia Filia.

Beautiful, tastefully decorated, spacious room with all necessary facilities (TV, mini fringe,A/C,safe, hairdryer).Bed with comfortable matress allowed us a very nice sleep and both room and bathroom were extremely clean.
Breakfast was far more than efficient concerning quantity and quality as well, consisting of homemade delicacies with pure, local ingredients- not to forget the pleasant garden in which it is being served!
Last-but not least-the owner as well as the stuff were very welcoming, polite and helpful.

If you live to eat and not eat to live - then this hotel is where you MUST stay. The morning 'feast' is a gourmet delight of all home made items. From sheep's yoghurt (extra thick and rich) to confit of plum, apricots, lemons, cherries, and village honey... to fresh made loukoumades (tough to find anywhere... let alone the traditional puffed, honey trimmed and nut sprinkled topping). Add to this, fresh ranch eggs ( you'll see the color difference ) and rich hot coffee. All of which is served up fresh by Chrisoula (Think "Like Water for Chocolate") and Sia... two remarkable women that run the show. Go... while you can. Book early. The locals already know about this place. I'm a pure foodie... I know what I'm talking about.

Room Tip: Near courtyard seemed good to me.

The Ganimede hotel in Galaxidi is a special place where Greek kitchen culture and the warmth of the owner and staff fill their cosy garden...
The original building has large hotelrooms, a special ambiance gives you impressions of bygone times....
It is the combination of this special ambiance and the multilingual owner Chrisoula to speak with about actual themes of todays world....

Most impressive is by far the astonishing breakfast each morning and on thursday the fruit and veggie market just outdoor foor purist foodies !!
Galaxidi with her Captains houses along the waterside is very original Greek an not influenced by mass tourisme.

Really big compliment for this hotel in this beautifull Greek town.

Room Tip: Not really necessary; All rooms all beautifull.

Lovely little hotel in the town of Galaxidi run by a charming owner and staff. The hotel itself, consisting of a couple of 19th-century houses set in a lush garden, has lovely rooms with balconies. The breakfast, served in the garden, consists mainly of local products and home-made delicacies changing every day. This unusual feature adds to the homey aspect of the hotel. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated, often with well-chosen antiques. Overrall great value for money -- a real "hôtel de charme"!

This is the tird times we returned in Ganimede... you can imagine how we love this hotel and the owner Chrisoula and her perfect team. Its is not an hotel but something more.
Imagine : you sleep in a very nice and charming room and when you wake up a delicious and prolific breakfast will wait for you served at your table, no self service please! Just a small description: Fruits, fresh orange juice, tea, coffee, yogourt, marmelades, chutney, eggs, ham, pastries, cheese and wonderful choise of breads baked by Costas, Chrisoula's husband....
Believe us Ganimede is an experince you will not have in a sheraton or Hilton Palace!
Enjoy at Ganimede and its charming village of Galaxidi.

Piero and Francesca again...
