Our story


Hi, we are Athina & Vincent. In 2017, we bought our own house on the Greek island of Karpathos. Holidays alone proved not enough for us and so in 2021 we decided to sell our house in the Netherlands. Since then, we have lived a large part of the year here, on Karpathos. In September 2022, we even got married there and 30 of our dear friends flew over. So special!

We love the island: the peace, nature, beaches and the nice weather, of course. This island is our happy place and we want to share it! This guide full of tips to give you the ultimate Karpathos experience. Enjoy!
