Last June I had the chance to visit Astypalaia island. In this blog post, I’d like to share with you a few photos that I took during my stay, as well as a few travel tips on things to do if you plan to visit this Butterfly-Shaped Picture Perfect Island. For those of you who haven’t yet been there, those photos and travel tips may encourage you to consider Astypalaia island for a future island holiday.
Where to stay
Kalderimi traditional houses / Chrysalis boutique Hotel
Kalderimi traditional houses were love at first sight! The owners have given a lot of love and care for this special place, so the customers will feel like being in their own house. Sometimes, at the moment you check out of a hotel that you have enjoyed very much, you leave a piece of your heart…Does it also happen to you? I urge you to visit!
Where to eat
Agoni Grammi, Ageri restaurant, Aiolos pizza restaurant, Almyra restaurant
I’d like to thank wholeheartedly the Municipality of Astypalaia, and especially Mrs. Maria Kampouri for inviting us to explore and photograph their beautiful island. I love Astypalaia island. I simply love Astypalaia’s positive energy. I’ll never get tired of saying this.

After 3 amazing days at San Luis, we thought we had seen “everything” from South Tyrol! But nope! Our chauffer picked us up from San Luis Hotel and brought us to Castelrotto. Three more exciting days were ahead of us!
At the end of May we spent three days at the Schgaguler Hotel in the Dolomites. We absolutely loved it! In this blog post, I am glad to present you my photos from this experience.
During our stay at Schgaguler Hotel in the Dolomites, we really enjoyed our massages and using the spa area.
A minimalistic approach to life! Love it!
I’d like to take a minute to thank Sandra who has been so adorable to us during dinner time. Seriously, it’s not often that you get treated so nicely! I guess she makes everybody’s dinner an unforgettable experience with her smile and friendliness.
So, if you plan to visit the beautiful Dolomites and stay in the mountain village of Castelrotto, you now know which hotel to hit first!
Here are some pictures from the surroundings of the hotel!
I’d like to thank wholeheartedly the Official Tourism board of South Tyrol for inviting me to explore their beautiful region and the family of Schgaguler Hotel for being so great and kind as hosts. It’s a shame that I didn’t know how beautiful this part of the world is. Now I know!

San Luis Retreat Hotel & Lodges left us speechless! From the moment we checked in till the moment we checked out, we were in awe. Even at the moment I was editing those photos, this place was giving me goosebumps. I am not good at finding the right words to describe such an amazing life experience. As usual, I will let the the photos do the talking! Enjoy!
The first day we were there, it rained. The rain made the scenery even more magical.
It’s nice to know that a place like this exist!
In the midst of private forests and fields, surrounded by wooden chalets and treehouses, I learnt to listen to the silence!
Here it doesn’t feel like you are staying in a hotel. It feels like you stay in a small exclusive village and you are happy to meet your neighbors for lunch and dinner. Breakfast is served in your chalet.
I’d like to thank wholeheartedly San Luis Retreat Hotel & Lodges for the invitation and for all the pampering! Thank you for creating this sanctuary for all of us to enjoy! It’s literally one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed. I want to stay positive and believe that it won’t take me long time to return!
