A few minutes walk from a sand and pebble beach, the Alkyoni is a budget hotel near Askeli on the island of Poros. It is only a few miles from the Poros Town, the island’s main town and harbour where all ferries and hydrofoils arrive from the mainland. Down at the beach, there are a good selection of restaurants and tavernas serving authentic Greek dishes and seafood as well as beach bars and pizzerias. If you prefer to swim in a fresh-water pool rather than the sea, then a public pool is located nearby. Hankering after a quiet and relaxing holiday on a sunny Greek island? Well look no further, as this Poros low-cost hotel is just the ticket. There is something for everyone at Askeli, ranging from water sports and scuba diving down at the beach to cycling around the island or trips to the Temple of Poseidon and Zoodochou Pigi Monastery. The Hotel Alkyoni’s reception desk is open between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. and there is an internet point for those who need to check their emails or book ferry tickets online. Free wireless internet access is also available throughout and you can send a fax, rent a bike or get some laundry done here too.
Piraeus Islands Trizonia. These small havens, located in close proximity to Athens are true gems to explore because of their absolute natural beauty, their historical treasures and unique architecture, and their glamorous, yet romantic atmosphere. Aegina, Poros, Hydra and Spetses, each having a different special character, have developed a lot in tourism over the last years, while Agistri and Methana are not that famous but remain unexploited little gems. Given their proximity to Athens and their beauty, the Piraeus Islands and Trizonia are hugely popular destinations, with Aegina almost becoming a city suburb at weekends. Poros, Ydhra (Hydra) and Spetses are similar in the summer, though their visitors include a higher proportion of foreign tourists. More than any other group, these islands are best out of season and midweek, when visitors (and prices) fall dramatically and the port towns return to a quieter, more provincial pace. Located at Askeli Beach, Poros, 18020, Greece, Alkyoni is the ideal choice for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Athens without having to venture too far. Piraeus Islands Trizonia feature picturesque harbors, museums and Neoclassical mansions, narrow, winding streets, charming beaches and unspoiled, natural beauty. Book a room with Alkyoni and discover the distinctive character of the Argo-Saronic Gulf.
