Argentikon Luxury Suites

Chios, Samos, Ikaria and FourniChios › Kampos

This stunning country estate in the fertile plain of Kampos is now one of Greece's most exclusive retreats, with just eight opulent suites and personalised service to match.

Known as Kampos, the fertile plain to the south of Chios Town has always been the island's most privileged neighbourhood, as it was here that the Genoese nobility chose to build their impressive mansions amidst the citrus groves that yielded them their fortunes. Today, the tall stone walls that shielded them from both the winds and the prying glances of those less fortunate conceal what is not only the island's finest hotel, but one of the most exclusive retreats in the whole of Greece.

Argentikon comprises just eight opulent suites, set amidst 32,000 square metres of landscaped gardens and orchards (the local gardener who created this truly enchanting oasis in 1954 had been sent to Italy and the Cote d'Azur by the Argenti family specifically to be educated in the design of a formal Ligurian garden). Exquisite old-world craftsmanship and 21st-century amenities have been combined to create an estate unsurpassed in beauty and refinement. The suites are spread across five separate buildings, from the main palazzo built in 1550 to a smaller building restored using the distinctive xysto technique from the village of Pirgi. Naturally, the suites vary in size and layout, but all are luxuriously furnished and sumptuously decorated. Each suite has a living room as well as one or two bedrooms and a marble bathroom stocked with Hermes toiletries. Amenities such as air-conditioning, safety deposit boxes, satellite TV, wi-fi internet access and mini-bars are provided in all suites, as are hairdryers, bathrobes and slippers.

As exquisite as the accommodation may be, what really distinguishes Argentikon is the highly personalised service offered, and the sheer sense of privacy and exclusivity created by the serene surroundings. A full American-style breakfast is served in the comfort of your own suite at no extra charge, whilst gourmet dinners prepared by the hotel's award winning chef can be enjoyed by candlelight in the romantic setting of the gardens.

Argentikon's central setting, just 6 km from Chios Town and even less from the sandy beaches of Karfas, makes this a surprisingly convenient base for exploring the island for somewhere that feels so far removed from the stresses of modern-day living. However, many guests will be loath to drag themselves away from this idyllic retreat too often, preferring instead to relax by the lovely swimming pool, burn off some calories in the exercise room, pamper themselves with a sauna or one of the massage or beauty treatments on offer, or simply stroll through the magnificent grounds, discovering some of the many hidden corners where you can fully appreciate the uniquely relaxing ambience of this truly unique hideaway.
