(in Greek this means small houses" .
I was searching the net to find the Best Traditional accommodation and now that I have been here I can assure that "Spitakia" is a first class accommodation possessing the official EOT (GREEK National Tourism) sign.
And this is not all. It involves a number of other activities like, - beeing a member of "Gourmet and Hosting network". The Green Net of Chios, a member of Hotel Owners Union in Chios, and a member of "Rooms to let union".
The host is Mr. George Missetzis and I can asure that he does his work with passion. He is involed with so much but yet finds time to please and care for the least detail just to make your stay here unforgettable
He will be your guide and advisor if you wish, suggesting the best alternatives, give tips as to how to get advantage of the time you spare on the island. He is so passionate with everything he does that you feel you have a friend out here from the first moment you come to "Avgonima Spitakia".
Unique Qualities: Spitakia are located in five parts of the village. The furniture used belongs to the "Aegean" collection, and all of them are fully equipped with kitchen, a TV set and air conditioning.
In some of the rooms there is a fire place, and in others central heaters.
The furniture both inside and out in the small verandas and yards, and all equipment are so carefully chosen to make the visitors stays peaceful and enjoyable.
In some of the houses the verandas are much bigger with really comfortable deck chairs, and the views are fantastic.
There is a wood stove and barbecue for people who love this activity in the yard of "Spitakia.
I had the chance to see several rooms - if not all -, and believe me each one has its own style
They are just perfect. Some of them which are higher like (spitaki 3) is equipped with benches and offers a splendid view of the Aegean.
The traditional breakfast, which includes lots of traditional Chios products like dairy products high quality filter and other types of coffe, home made pastries and marmalade made by the family housewives is served at spitakia snack bar in the center of Avgonyma every day from 08.30 to 10.30. The price is 7,50€ per person per day.
Enjoy a glass of fresh fruit, or enjoy your ouzo or suma at the Spitakia Cafe. Have it on the rocks with a mixture of fruit or nuts at Spitakia bar.
Spitakia Cafe, also offers you all the necessary food items and other useful products. Three times a week, usually in the afternoon a greengrocer visits the village in a red van, which stops at the square. (Luckily I don't have to cook here)!
So, with ALL these amenities and services, and with a passionate host like George you have every chance to have the Best holidays ever!!! I can assure of this.
