Looking forward to meeting you soon in Volissos,

The island of Chios is located in the group of islands of the northern and eastern Greece, a place where traditions and customs blend with the natural beauty of the coast and inland. We appreciate the island even for small villages, where ancient peoples (Greeks and Turks, but also Persians, Romans and Genoa) left important traces, even in urban architecture.

The history of Chios and in particular of Volissos is linked to a name, that of Homer, the father of the great epic literature, who is traditionally identified as the author of the 'Iliad' and of the 'Odyssey'. Homer himself remembered his hometown as an immense pearl of rock, where the white stone and the characteristics of the houses, the intense blue of the sea, the gold or the silver of the beaches, the green of the Mediterranean scrub form a low puzzle of color and light.

The population (just over 52,000 inhabitants) contends 910 sq km of area and focuses mostly in the cities: the greater the capital of the same name Chios, which like all the first cities in the island is also called Chora, followed by some resorts Attraction Tourism, in particular Volissos, Vrondados, Pyrgi, Mesta, Kardamylla, Oinousses, and Agiasmata known for its thermal baths.

The beaches of Chios are numerous, sometimes small and gathered, some other 'bigger, others large and equipped. The most beautiful beaches are located north west of the island and in particular are cited 'Magemena', about 2 km from Volissos but also the characteristic volcanic beach of Mavra Volia, location Pyrgi.

Chios is also known for its historical monuments, the Church of the Holy Apostles and the Byzantine monastery of Nea Moni (UNESCO World Heritage site).

Several archaeological sites of the island of Chios, like those of prehistoric nature of Agio Galas (the caves of Neolithic origin, used as first settlements, in which we find the well-known St. Anne's chapel of Byzantine origin), of Emporio and Koira sites. They are joined by those from the greek-Roman times, as the temple of 'Athena' to 'Apollo Fanaio' and even those in the city of Chios, known in ancient times to be very prosperous and rich.

The island is full of monasteries, churches and mosques, easy to visit the many tourist itineraries offered to travelers.

The evening entertainment is provided throughout the island in the numerous nightclubs, bars and restaurants.

Chios is reached by ferry from Piraeus and Thessaloniki and other towns in the neighboring islands. Charter flights are provided by different European cities, while the line provide connections to Athens. Chios is also reached by ferry from Turkey, the equally famous resorts of Cesme and Izmir.

Thucydides' Voliskos, nowadays Volissos, according to Functional tradition was the home city of Homer. Here, according to Functional an interpetation, the great poet wrote 'Vatrachomiomachia', a parody of the Iliad. It is built on the sides of a small hill, crowned by a Byzantine castle, Which local tradition regards it Has Been built by General Velissarios. The castle has a trapezoid shape with six circular towers. There were several constructions, cisterns and churches in its interior. A tunnel was connecting the castle with the sea and the Pithonas community.

The area where the castle is located has a vivid flora, resting to the eye. As you walk on one of the most ancient passageways of Greece, you can feel the land's positive energy, while Attempting to grasp That the changes have occurred over the centuries. Narrow streets and traditional houses form a romantic landscape and atmosphere.

The castle is not the only site worth visiting: Malagioti passing the valley, you can enjoy its rare flora, rich in colors and aromas. At the Volissos wider area, there are magnificent, unknown to many, beaches, unique in beauty: Managros, Magemena, Lefkathia, Limnos, Lampsa, Saint Markella, while in the middle you will find the picturesque port of Limnia. During the summer Sites That Their offer freshness and Their wilderness during the winter, resembling a landscape That You will not come across in many Greek places.

At the beach of Saint Markella, a church with the same name is located, Which is the site of her martyrdom, still quite evident. Pilgrims from the island of Chios and citizens living elsewhere in Greece and the world flock at the renowned celebration of the Saint's name. Thus, the celebration takes the form of a ecumenical pilgrimage.

The most beautiful and peaceful getaway you can imagine

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Casa Bella, the house is very beautiful and fully equipped. There is even a backgammon to really get into the Greek vibe with your morning coffee. Our host Ioannis is extremely helpful and generous with his time and knowledge of the island, he even gave us a delicious homemade jam on our departure.

Volissos has all the amenities you need including a couple of supermarkets, a pharmacy, a patisserie and many delicious tavernas to eat in. The castle towers over the village and is beautiful when lit up in the evenings.

Chios island is a wonderful place to adventure around on too, with a great history very well explained at the mastiha museum and a huge variety of beaches, landscapes and landmarks.

We will definitely be visiting again soon.

Beautiful property tucked in the hills of Volissos with breath taking views

  • 5 of 5

The property was fantastic, everything we could have asked for and more. Ioannis our host was helpful and pleasant and really made our vacation start on the right foot.

The property had everything one needs and is beautiful, charming and you feel as though you are a part of the community. It's location central, easy walk to the town centre. The town itself is wonderful and the people were welcoming.

I suggest renting a car and exploring as much of the island and neighbouring towns and beaches as possible. I would recommend Casa Bella to anyone wishing explore Chios Island while staying in a remote traditional Greek village.

Fantastico soggiorno a Volissos

  • 5 of 5

"Siamo stati quasi due settimane a Casa Bella, una meravigliosa casa in pietra nel centro storico di Volissos. Una casa nella quale era stupendo fare colazione nel patio o prendere un aperitivo sulla terrazza, guardando il mare, la natura circostante e i magnifici panorami che offre. E' in una posizione nella quale al tramonto percorrendo la strada per raggiungerla si può avere una visione mozzafiato di Volissos, maggior centro della zona nord di Chios, perfetto punto di partenza per visitare tutto il nord ed il centro dell'isola.

La casa è estremamente curata col fine di mettere a proprio agio i visitatori e rispondere altresì a qualsiasi possibile esigenza. Un ringraziamento particolare al Sig. Ioannis per la gentilezza e disponibilità dimostrata. Con la speranza e la voglia di tornare un giorno a Casa Bella."

Feel like a local

  • 5 of 5

Feel like a local in the lovely restored stone house in an incredibly friendly village. The outdoor patios were perfect for relaxing after a day of sightseeing. Volissos is not too far from any part of the island. We visited the Mesta villages to the south and traveled all over the north. There is a wonderful little taverna in the town where we ate every evening. The locals were very friendly and we felt welcome in the villge. Everything at the house was very clean and comfortable unless you like soft beds. They were a little hard. The village is on a hillside so you need to be in shape to travel around unless you drive everywhere. We totally enjoyed our stay on CHios and Casa Bella was everything we had hoped for. We were three women traveling together at the end of a three week trip and it was nice to have room to spread out. Each of us had a floor all to ourselves in the house.
