The Pension Atlas, founded in 1983, is a family run Business. Your hosts are Kyrianna, Trudi and Petros Kavalaris, who are looking forward to making your stay as pleasant as possible. All three are highly knowledgeable about the island and its people. Trudi hails from Switzerland and is fluent in German, English and Greek. You'll arrive as a holidaymaker but, thanks to the hotel's cordial atmosphere, you'll be saying goodbye to friends come the day of your departure.

The hotel is located on the outskirts of Karterados in the centre of the main island. On foot, it takes only five minutes to reach the village centre. There you'll find numerous shops, a well-stocked supermarket, a varied bakery, a hairdresser, cafés which later at night turn into bars and lots of taverns where you'll be treated to authentic Greek cuisine. Fira, the island's lively capital, can be reach on foot, too, in just 15 minutes. Not only are there many shops and boutiques strewn across the quaint narrow ally ways, the town offers a great spectacular view of the caldera. In the evenings, Fira boasts a flourishing party scene with its many clubs and bars.
