A few words

Patmos is a small island in the northernmost part of Dodecanese complex. It' s population does not exceed the 3.000 people (for the papers) and the 800 residents for the winter months! Patmos has a natural beauty and peacefulness that you can feel from the first hours of your visit. It' s the ideal island for people who want to wake up in the morning, view the extraordinary scenery (from any accommodation or house) they live in Patmos and forget the wretched gray color of concrete and annoying sounds of corns and motors.
