What is your first association with Greece? Beautiful beaches, sun and endless blue sky? My first association with Greece is Olive…olive tree, olive oil and everything connected to this amazing plant. If you love Greece and especially olives there is one hidden paradise that you have to discover – northern part of Evia island. If you are coming by road from northern Greece you can catch a ferry and first place that you have to visit is Agios Kampos. It is the best base for your holiday in north Evia as you can visit numerous destinations near by. Also it has a great sandy beach with all shades of blue.
Place where you will be feeling as at home when you are in Agios Kampos is familly owned hotel – Ellaeon Throesma ( in Greek language that means sound of olive tree – that beautiful sound that leaves of olives makes on a windy day)
In a peaceful green bay in Northern Evia in the coastal area of Agiokampos and 100 meters from the sea, the renovated “Ellaeon Throesma” is an elegant choice for relaxation and seclusion. A hospitable, cozy, and comfortable place that makes you feel at home, promises in addition to the enjoyable hours in the clear blue and always calm sea and the traditional gastronomy in the seaside restaurants, philosophical, musical and poetic discussions.
The precious days of your vacation can be made much more interesting if combined (by the assistance of the hotel owners) with small walking excursions to wonderful nearby destinations through green paths, discovering the beauty of Greek nature or with short trips to spots for water sports (windsurfing and kite surfing).
Ellaeon Throesma is located in Agiokampos in Northern Evia, on the main street connecting Istiaia – Loutra Edipsos Road with Agiokampos main harbor. In fact it is 200 meters from the harbor away. Agiokampos harbor is connecting Northern Evia with Glyfa (Regional Greece) by ferries sailing very often in high season. This ferry connection simplifies the access to Evia for travelers approaching from Northern Greece.
The route through Chalkida is an option for guests coming from Athens or Southern Greece. Another option is to head towards Arkitsa harbor to catch the ferry to Loutra Edipsos, a destination which stands only 9km away from Agiokampos.
Istiaia town is a 15 minutes’ drive from Agiokampos. You can find there any needed amenities (such as bank branches, super markets, etc) and also enjoy your coffee, drinks, snacks, lunch or dinner.
A mini market is located opposite the hotel. You only need to cross the road to reach it.
In Agiokampos there are plenty of tavernas, restaurants and cafes where one can enjoy local dishes any time of the day. The most spectacular time is for sure the time the sun goes down. Don’t miss it!
Having Agiokampos as a base, you can drive to many seaside places by the sea and following short or longer routes one may explore some of the most untouched spots of the Greek coastal line.
Easily accessible beaches of excellent beauty, such as Nisiotissa, Pantermos and Tsokaiti, offer special moments of relaxation and wellness.
Hiking and cycling routes are waiting for you to discover them and watersports to enjoy them. Indicatively, we suggest for a visit places like Drymonas waterfalls, the surrounding area of Panagia Dinious’ Church and Natural Sea Life Museum “Nautilus”. Last but not least, a visit to Lichadonissia, the small islands with turquoise waters, is a must!
