… paradise on a hill …

Imagine you turn your head to the right and see the breathtaking view of the Venetian Castle, to your left you are enchanted by the green scenery and at your feet the 3 seas … Myrtoo, Aegean and Ionio Pelagos and the unique Hytra rock. Once, in the guestbook, this view was perfectly described as…
“heaven on a hill”

Our story began in July 1990…

When our doors “opened” for the first time as RAIKOS Hotel, pioneers of a new way of Greek hospitality on the island of Kythera with new architecture and facilities. Since May 2009 the administration has been taken over by me with new ideas and services, renovations and a futuristic aspect of hospitality; always in respect to the history of the hotel. That’s how the El Sol was born…

Welcome to our family… Welcome to EL SOL Hotel

Yours sincerely,
Vanessa Raikou
