About Chios Island

Chios is an island of seafarers (Christopher Columbus visited before his historical voyage taking on crew and gaining knowledge of the seas beyond the Mediterranean shipping magnets), fishermen, scholars and agriculturists, where historical influences are seen in the remnants of Ancient Greek temples, Venetian fortresses and architecturally unique is the Kambos area, where centuries old mansions tower above a sea of citrus orchards and elaborate gardens on the route south to the fortified medieval villages (Genoese) the focal centres of the mastic growing. Mastic is unique to Chios and has been recognised since ancient times for its medicinal qualities, as a seasoning in Greek and Middle-east cuisine and more recently cosmetics.

Chios is an island of unspoilt beaches, crystal clear seas, and a nature that offers seasonal delights, from springtime blossom and wild flower glory, to autumns reds and okras offset in the blues of the aegean sea and sky. An island of fragrances and tastes-Chios jasmine, mastic, rosewater, mandarine, wine, ouzo. Not only these impressive number of characteristics and the islands complex personality makes Chios a unique destination, but also the close proximity to Turkey, Lesvos and Samos makes Chios an ideal location for trips and excursions to discover the north eastern Aegean Sea.
