Chios - The fragrand island of the Aegean

Chios is one of the islands of the Northeast Aegean, opposite the Asia Minor coast. It is located at a distance of 165 miles from Piraeus. It can also be reached by plane  from Athens in 30 minutes. 

The smell of gum mastic and the saltiness of the sea are the dominant fragrances of the island. Chios is the only place in the world, where a special type of resin from the mastiha trees is produced, the gum mastic. In the past few years it has attracted the interest of a large number of scientists, the researches of which confirm its beneficial properties and effects. The cultivation of the gum mastic was well known from the ancient times and it has been closely connected to the history of island. The importance of this unique product turned the island to a target for conquerors many times over in the past. The protection of gum mastic and its producers, was one of the main reasons that the medieval villages of Chios were built as fortresses, since it was the only way to face the frequent raids of pirates that came to steal gum mastic and women from the island. Medieval villages such as Mesta and Pyrgi with their own special architecture, castle towns such as Avgonyma and Byzantine monuments such as the New Monastery reveal aspects of the historical course of the island to the visitor.

The island’s larger part is mountainous and unfolds to the North, while the South is characterised by lowlands, full of fertile plains such as the region of Kambos and Mastichochoria. Kambos is one of the most beautiful regions of the island, a vast orangery, where so many Genovese and local aristocrats chose to build their mansions.

Chios offers to the sea-and-sun lovers crystal-clear waters and a big variety of beaches to satisfy all tastes. Cosmopolitan sandy beaches, pebbled coasts, faraway small bays where one can enjoy the primitive beauty of nature compose the natural landscape of Chios.

Chios is a destination that has it all: natural beauty, history, civilization, culture.
