KALLICHORON GOES GREEN
We care deeply about the people and the environment in which we live. Being the only Green Key eco-labelled hotel on the island, it is our priority to act responsibly in everything we do by promoting eco-awareness and minimizing any adverse environmental impact from our operations. We are great supporters of locally produced organic goods and local suppliers, thus supporting the community in which we operate.
Kallichoron is actively supporting the non-profit organization Clean Hands, which collects residual soap from hotels and after appropriate treatment, distributes them to socially vulnerable groups.

WHERE ART MEETS WITH THE AEGEAN SEA
It’s not just the island that makes for beautiful surroundings; the hotel itself is an innovative forum for featured artists. This year we welcome the beautiful work of the contemporary artist, Gefso Papadaki. Her paintings explore the sounds of the Aegean Sea, giving the name to this interactive exhibition, Aegean Melodies. Gefso’s work, which is featured throughout the hotel, will visually engage and inspire our guests.
Every morning our guests can taste a selection of homemade jams made from organic fruits, thyme honey, local cheese and fresh eggs from our Grandma’s yard - all locally sourced. The variety of traditional delicacies will be the best introduction to the Astypalean cuisine.
Our breakfast is curated by our in-house dietician-nutritionist Mary Micheli, MSc. While you can always make your own breakfast choices from the menu, Mary has created some authentic Greek breakfast combinations as well as healthy and low-fat options that will be nutritious and keep your taste buds happy.
