The hotel Margarita is a big traditional mansion with white walls and blue shutters built in 1840 by the family Stais. The building was renovated in 1990 and turned into a hotel, without having lost its classical style.

The hotel enjoys an exceptional location, being in the heart of Chora, the main village of the island, while being set back from the main road.

From both terraces you can enjoy a magnificent view of the countryside and the sea. Your breakfast will be served here and during the rest of the day you can have a drink, a snack or a piece of cake in this outdoor tea salon.

The twelve rooms are traditionally furnished. Most of them have a nice view of the sea, the hills around, or the fortress. All rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, minifridge, telephone and have a bathroom with shower, toilet and washbasin.

Since the beginning of 2002, the Hotel Margarita have been taken over by two young Frenchmen, Francois and Frederic. Whilst retaining the very particular atmosphere and charm of the house, they have sought to add a few irresistible French touches. For example, for breakfast, you can have home-made croissants and pains au chocolat as delicious as those sold in the best Parisian boulangeries. At any time of the day, you can enjoy a light snack of fresh quiches and mouth-watering tarts, all made on the premises in the hotelís little kitchen. (This is also one of the few places in Greece where you can get a real cup of P.G. Tips!)

Francois and Frederic are always available with helpful advice to make stay easy and pleasant and to make sure that you appreciate to the full all charms of Kythira.
