We are located in one of the most idyllic locations in Northern Greece
As the principal port of Eastern Macedonia & Thrace, Kavala is located 160km east of Thessaloniki. A city of amazing history, magnificent landscape and wonderful people, founded in the late 7th century B.C. as Neapolis, renamed as Christoupolis during the Byzantine era and finally as Kavala, since the 16th century, the city has always been a place of desire through history, scattered with monuments of historical interest.

The picturesque location and the historical monuments are the main reasons that Kavala is one of the most significant touristic destinations in Northern Greece. The old town of Kavala, the archeological site of Philippi with the ancient theatre and its inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Roman Egnatia Via and the first European steps of Apostle Paul, up to the significant moments of Modern Greek History, mark the importance of the area. Additionally, the beauty of the natural landscape can hardly be described. The mountains Paggaeo and Symvolo, combined with the golden beaches and Nestos river, form a magnificent scenery, while the nearby island of Thassos is a must for the summer months.
