When my friends invited me for a weekend in Kythnos, I hesitated a bit, I had never visited the island before. Kythnos is not a very popular destination among the other Cycladic islands, but now after my visit, I don`t understand the reason.
It is such a wonderful place, with beautiful beaches, cute small villages, great sea, tasty food and so easy to reach it. It is really close to Athens, for someone who wants to travel fast, you can be in Kythnos by boat, only in one and a half hours from the port of Lavrio.
The area of the hotel, is breathtaking. When I first saw the place form above, I thought I had found a little paradise.
The fact that it was September and at the same time, the end of summer season, offered me the chance to enjoy the island so differently. Less people on vacation simply bring a calmer rhythm to a place and a more relaxed energy which was like a gift. I myself took a mini break in September I think for the first time and I enjoyed it a lot.
I had decided to stay away from blogging these two days and rest, but as soon as I arrived at Guardiero, I changed my mind and grabbed my camera. This place worths a share.
Guardiero hotel, consists of 8 great rooms, formed in such way that all of them have a sea view and it is located on Kouri beach. It is literally on the beach friends, and it takes a minute to reach the sea from the room`s verandas.
It is a gorgeous place, full of green and flowers, ideal for families with children, couples or all those who love nature.
I totally loved Guardiero and Kouri beach and I didn`t want to move from there those two days that my visit lasted. Next to the hotel, the owners have created another beautiful space, a little tavern, surrounded by bougainvilleas, that serves fantastic breakfast with local products, while you can eat all day long till late at night.
Guardiero to me will always be an early morning awakening, incredible sea view, rest, delicious tastes, quiet moments, and kind hospitality.
I think that I will be back very soon.
