A few words about us…It was just a trip for leisure to Aghioi Apostoloi near Petries in Evia Island…and finally…we built this small hotel. Our hotel got its name after the ancient story of Jason and the Argonauts.
The hotel Argo is a family business and it numbers 23 rooms and studios and since 2017 a summer house as well, an awarded breakfast (by the Greek municipality for promoting local products) and continues spreading of its tastes towards a wider “audience” with a new project since 2014 the “Gastronomic Package“. It is our latest venture, to share our knowledge, simple and delicious recipes with people from all over the world, with a combination of a real hospitality with good food.
The hotel Argo does not offer you just accommodation but something more… we will offer you “hospitality”
We are a family. We, Dimitra & Konstantinos Kanaris (owners of the hotel), our daughter Mara and our son Makis. Our son is the owner of the restaurant “Simos” in Athens for the winter months and works at the hotel in the summer. Our daughter has an official license and works as a tourist guide and with a second degree in humanitarian studies, in (what else) Greek civilization. So she is the one who may provide you the archaeological background, the myths and the stories of the places and the people and make you feel a part of the history.

“excellent stay with excellent hosts”
we have spent 4 days at Argo where we enjoyed to the top our stay. The hotel is lcoated at the beach - a small shore but very clean with shallow waters and beach umrealla and chaise-longs avaialble for the guests. the breakfast was delicious and table tastefully decorated. the rooms are nice with anti-mosquito nets and A/C. our room was on the ground floor as we requested with easy access the garden. there is an animal yard with ostriches, peacocks, ducks etc. - the beloved place for afternoon walk for our kids. the restaurant is the best place in all the village for a snack, lunch or dinner (we tried several of them though, with the best octopus ever, prepared in vinegar :) Thanks, Maki! we received excellent help with the must-visit beaches around. my husband took a cooking class with Makis and he was very happy. the motor boat ride (we did it twice), discovering all the little secluded beaches around, is also something one shall not miss. i strongly recommend Argo in Evia for family and couples holidays. Thank you, Maki and family! we'll be back :)
