Located exactly where the Dodecanese meet the Cyclades, the island of Astypalaia boasts a centuries-old history, whitewashed villages and sun-drenched beaches. It is an island of significant historical heritage, wonderful traditional images, unparalleled natural beauty and home to very hospitable islanders.

With its greatly praised castle towering the picturesque Chora, 365 churches and monasteries dispersed all over and sandy beaches, it is one of the most beautiful island towns in the Aegean. Astypalaia – or Astropalia as the locals call their island in their dialect – is a lovely island never to be forgotten.

The island clusters of the Dodecanese and Cyclades, each of which have their own identifying characteristics, meet in Astypalaia to create a unique result. Once upon a time the castle of Astypalaia had a key used to lock the island's belles in and out of visitors’ reach.
