Friendly, cozy and very welcoming, the Filoxenia offers excellent value for money in Galaxidi and is only a five-minute walk to town. There’s a view of mount Parnassus and the village from your room balcony, adding to the authentic Greek experience.
The breakfast in the hotel’s courtyard is just sumptuous, including a lightly fried puffy bread topped with feta cheese and drizzled with a bit of honey. Fresh orange juice, homemade jams, braided home-baked biscuits, fresh fruit and a divine omelet are generally part of the breakfast too, so are coffee and tea of course.
For the colder months there’s a cozy sitting and dining area for breakfast just off the main kitchen, and you feel like the place is home. The free wifi internet is also a blessing, as well as the little kitchenettes in the room.
The owner of the place has taken care to install energy-friendly air-conditioning and lighting. She also recycles wherever possible and uses only local produce and products, which is a big plus in our books.
Location-wise Filoxenia is just a close walk to the little port of Galaxidi with all its restaurants and handful of shops, but also to the town beach and trendy coffee shop. If you like to walk, take a 20-minute stroll or 30-minute hike around the port and round the hilly forest to a handful of more secluded beaches where you’ll be practically alone in a stunning environment.
This is a clean no-frills property with simple yet nice rooms that’s convenient, friendly, and authentic where the owner tries to keep the prices down while maintaining high standards. A family atmosphere dominates but it’s also great for couples. If you want a great place to stay with a decent breakfast in Galaxidi on a budget, this is it.
