You wouldn’t know it, but this very spacious and very well furnished property with marble bathrooms, top-notch construction, impressive finish, local architecture and kitchenette is barely a five-minute walk from the center of town through a side alley.
It is not surprising that Filoxenia has received top-not ratings online. Although this is not a hotel but a set of apartments, there’s a wonderful cozy reception that acts as a meeting place for friends. The construction all looks brand new yet has managed to keep local elements such as wooden ceilings, Cycladic pathways, and the typical whitewashed look of houses on these islands. The larger suites are just perfect for families with a sitting and dining area, with some rooms sleeping up to four people quite comfortably. There are five two-room apartments and four large studios with satellite TV and air-conditioning.
The kitchenettes enable you to prepare great breakfasts or light meals, considering there are many little markets and bakeries not far off. The town is a pleasure to stroll through and there are a number of restaurants nearby. While the seaside part of Adamas offers shopping, nightlife and a host of busy coffee shops near the port where locals hang out, the old part of town on the hill boasts an impressive church, a jazz club and a pottery workshop that are worth a visit. There’s even a decent beach within walking distance, perfect if you don’t want to drive that day.
This little port town holds many culinary and cultural surprises, including the fascinating mining museum that reveals so much about how the island flourished. If you don’t have a car Filoxenia is an easy walk from the port, and if you do you’ll find it easy to park on the street in front of the property. Don’t hesitate to book this place.
