In the southwest corner of the Aegean sea between the islands of Crete & Rhodes lies Karpathos. An island of rare beauty and diverse cultural tradition. In the northern side part of Karpathos there are two small villages: Olimpos and Diafani.
Olympos is a traditional village perched upon a mountainside with breathtaking views of the island's west coast. The visitor becomes a traveler in time, experiencing a landscape and a way of life so mingly unchanged since the days of the Byzantine Empire.
In a colorful environment only 100 m from the sea and about 8 Km from Olimpos you will find the beautiful Diafani. Diafani is the port of Olimpos. Here you will find restaurants with fresh fish, connection to the nearby beaches as well as connection to the other islands by ferry boat.
In Diafani, only 100 m away from the coast you will also find "Nikos Hotel". A quiet and pet-friendly, family-run hotel , ideal for single travellers or a whole family. We offer you 12 rooms, from 1 up to 4 beds, containing a private bathroom, T.V. , Air-Condition and mini-fridge. 4 self-contained studios, including a "mini kitchen" are available as well. From our big balconies you can enjoy the nice view to the sea and to the mountain! Every morning you can enjoy your coffee together with many tasty cackes and marmelades in our breakfast room or in the little garden next to it.
If you like reading during your holidays but have no place in your luggage for your big book, we have a solution: A "bring-a-book take-a-book" library! Choose a book, read it and leave it or take it with you!! If on the other hand, you have a book that you don't need anymore, there is a place for it here!
