Sitting on the balcony, dining al fresco under the stars or unwinding with a glass of wine while soaking up the sun and enjoying the view over the pretty harbour, could be among the moments to savour at the Petros Apartments, in Emborio, Halki.
The well-maintained apartments in the centre of Emborio village offer simple, charming accommodation for a relaxing, self-catering holiday with tavernas, bars and shops close by and the sandy Pondamos Beach less than 10 minutes away, where sunbeds and umbrellas are for hire.
Apartments, decorated in cool blue and white, have twin beds or a double bed in the bedroom and a single sofabed in the kitchen/sitting room, a bathroom with a shower, a kitchenette with cooking rings and a balcony or veranda.
Emborio, the only settlement on the island of Halki, is an idyllic and picturesque village built at the foot of a mountain and features Italian-style houses set around a horseshoe-shaped bay. The harbour front is around 400m long and offers a sprinkling of cafes and a couple of tavernas.
The area is superb for hiking, with the only paved road connecting the port to the Agios Ioannis Monastery. The ruins of a castle of the Knights of St John crown the smaller peak behind Emborio, offering panoramic views.
Other sites of interest include the steeple of St Nicholas, leaning over an arch of ancient marble from the temple of Apollo, while the next nearest beach, Ftenagia, is about a 15-minute walk along a rocky path.
One bedroom apartments with two single beds in the bedroom and one single bed (sofa type) in the kitchen/sitting room, private bathroom with shower, kitchenette (cooking rings) and a private balcony with inland view. One bedroom double apartment with one double bed in the bedroom and one single bed (sofa type) in the kitchen/sitting area, private bathroom with shower, a separate kitchen area (cooking rings) and a private veranda with inland view.
