The Hotel Margarita is a typical patrician house, like the other patrician houses situated on the main street of Chora and around the Kastro (Castle). In 1922, the house became the seat of the Diocese of Kythira and Antikythira, and later on a branch of the National Bank of Greece. The Staïs family eventually sold this elegant home. In 1990, after a complete renovation, the house was turned into the Margarita Hotel.

ablutsauger 21 Oct 2016Kythira's GoldCastle of Chora is what makes Kythira look representative. It's position and view over the port make it a remarkable experience. There are also informative panels on the location to get you a little bit of history.
ablutsauger 20 Oct 2016Small and InformativeThe archaeological museum is located at the very entrance to Chora, on the left, so you cannot miss it.
It is very small but very informative and fully equipped with interactive touch screens, films and descriptions, everything provided in English as well.
Very nice experience.
ablutsauger 16 Oct 2016Classic Old TownChora is visually the most live part of Kythira. It is your typical old town, with live colours, narrow streets and souvenir shops.
It's most famous and distinguished part is certainly the castle, which alone makes Kythira a desirable island to visit.
It is close to Kapsali, so you can always combine these two for walking, shopping, eating and historical insight.
