Kythnos, beautiful and picturesque, is the first island that the visitor meets on the way to western Cyclades. It is found between Kea and Serifos and is located 52 nm from Piraeus. It is a mountainous island, that is characterized by the classic Cycladic landscape and its extent reaches the 99 sq. km.  It is a picturesque Cycladic island, with small villages built  in accordance to traditional architecture. Cobbled streets, white houses, squares, churches and windmills compose a perfect setting of vacations for those who select calmness and peacefulness near nature.

The island is inhabited since the ancient years and demonstrates appreciable archaeological sites and monuments.

As any island automatically means sea, in Kythnos visitors can enjoy a swim in its splendid beaches. Closed bays, windless ports and golden sandy beaches promise unforgettable hours of joy.

Kythnos had never been over flooded by uncontrollable tourist development and still maintains intact its beauties. It offers quiet vacations to visitors, without however missing any occasions for entertainment. As long as it concerns accommodation, hotels and groups of rented rooms that function in the island, satisfy any needs and requirements  that each traveller may has.
