Chora Village House - in the old town, with stunning views over Patmos island (quiet, modernised, traditional house for holiday rent. Sleeps 4)

Location of Traditional Aegean Village House

The holiday house/villa for rent lies under the walls of the ancient, fortified monastery which crowns this Mediterranean island.

The location is convenient for the Monastery of Saint-John the Theologian, Patmos' main attraction, and for admiring and photographing the whitewashed stone architecture of the unspoilt Chora (the name of the greatest or more important town or village of a Greek island). The Chora, the monastery, and the Cave of the Apocalypse are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This romantic hideaway commands wonderful views of the sea looking south and west. The area is very quiet as the narrow lanes are impassable to traffic, and there are no bars or restaurants within hearing distance.

The rental house's central location on the island makes it an ideal jumping-off place for walking the cross-country paths that criss-cross Patmos.
