Just 50m away from the village square of Potamos, you will find the traditional Guesthouse Lanos. The name of this accommodation has been derived from the so-called ‘lanos’, the big stone ‘tank’ where they used to crush the grapes with their feet.

Guesthouse Lanos has two spacious studios, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor. The studio on the ground floor, the Lanos, suits four people. This big open space is a traditional arched room, the kamara, and has a fire place. In the old stone floor you still can see the original poulani, the hole where they collected the wine after pounding the grapes. This studio also has a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with toilet, shower and wash stand. In front of the Studio Lanos is a wide terrace and the shaded garden.

The Studio Sophia, named after the daughter of the owner, is on the first floor and has a beautiful wooden beamed ceiling. Also this studio has a large open living plan and suits four persons. Adjacent is the kitchenette with shower, toilet and wash stand. From the kitchenette you step out onto the spacious balcony which is partly covered by a pergola.

Guesthouse Lanos is open all year around. Central heating makes your stay in the winter period also very comfortable.

Both studios have a double bed. The extra persons sleep on normal sized couch (bed bank). Cleaning, changing of bed linen and towels are twice a week.

With a stay in Potamos you will submerge yourselves in Greek village life. Around the village square there is a bakery, a butcher shop, a small super market and some nice kafeneia and restaurants.

Every Sunday morning locals and visitors come together at the market on the village square. It is a traditional and colourful market where islanders sell their local products and have done so for hundreds of years. A visit to this market cannot be missed during your stay on Kythira.

Potamos is an ideal base for discovering the island due to its central location.
