Why do so many tourists prefer the Greek islands when the paradise is on the main land? Situated between the lovely beaches of Papanero and the beautiful bay of Damochari you'll find the charming Hostel Katerina. This is a very good starting point for many nice walks on the many paths in the area. The hostel provides you with nice... More

We had a balcony with beautiful views over the Aegean and access to a lovely garden with hammocks and plenty of shady areas to sit. Our hosts, Katerina and her parents were welcoming and always available if we had questions or needed anything. The apartment's location is... More

Katrina's place is very easygoing and the beach just a minute the way down from the house is stunning! We loved to stay at this place. The rooms are clean and with the balcony in front to the seaside it is every morning absolutely appreciated to drink your coffee with an amazing view.

Katerina's hostel is a bit difficult to find, but once you're there it's like paradise. Even in high season, it's still quiet, even at the beach a few minutes down from the hostel. We enjoyed each morning our breakfast at the terrass/garden with a view at the sea and surrounded by lemon trees, flowers and overhanging grapes. Katerina and the... More

We spent two weeks in one of the double apartments. We had the most incredible time. Fantastic location, great view and very clean apartment. Ms Katerina and her family looked after my daughter as if they were family. Fresh figs every day, cats to play with, etc. Papa nero beach is just a five minute walk down some rocky steps.... More

Hostel Katerina is an amazing property located on the rocks at the end of the beautiful Papanero beach. It is in the middle of a garden and it is surrounded by trees. It is far enough of the town to hear only the sea, but close enough to reach the center of Agios Ioannis in 15 minutes. Its name is... More
