How to get to Patmos island
Where to stay in Patmos island
We tried two different kind of accommodations which are located in two different parts of the island. We often like to do that because we get to experience one island in different ways and see it from different perspectives. So we spent two nights in a unique and historic countryside estate that is called Langada and three nights at one of the beautiful villas of Onar Patmos.

Highlight of my trip to Patmos island was the encounter with the painter Andreas Kalatzis. We passed by his studio/gallery late in the evening and we saw him working on an art piece that he had to ship to the US. Something attracted us to him, and without giving it a second thought, we jumped into his studio! It felt immediately like we have been knowing each other for years but we had just met. Everything about him, his life and his work was incredible inspiring to us! We wanted to keep in touch with him, so we asked for his business card, he took a small piece of paper, he drew a couple on it, and on the back he wrote his name and his telephone number! Definitely the most beautiful business card I’ve ever seen! And the only one I will keep in my wallet!
