ELaiolithos has a beauty all of its own and the right philosophy that looks to be a home away from home for the discerning guest. The design concept of the hotel was inspired by a few emblematic items of the local culture: the old millstone from Moni village, the Naxian marble, the olive groves and the Drimalia Byzantine Mystras.

Helen except of being a great host, she has also earned a reputation for creating a unique but contemporary twist on traditional Naxian cuisine with an emphasis on healthy, local, and seasonal ingredients.
