Hotel Imaret

Hotel Imaret

Near the border with Thrace lies Kavála, Greece's tobacco city, like an amphitheater carved into the flank of Mount Símvolo. Ancient Neápoli used to be enthroned here, but its name changed to "Christoúpoli" when Apostle Paul wrote his letters there to the Christians of nearby Fílippi. Because of its strategic port, the city remained sought after for centuries, and numerous peoples left their traces there. Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent rebuilt the Roman aqueduct there and Mohamed Ali erected the majestic "imaret" complex. With its medieval ramparts and Byzantine castle, they proudly overlook the island of Thássos which is reflected in the eternally blue sea.

This hotel is beyond words: it is a monument, a fairy-tale palace, where sultry aromas of lavender and orange blossom bring the magic of the East closer in a subtle and sophisticated way. Highly recommended!
