“Kentrikon” is one of the oldest hotels in the area with a long tradition in hospitality. Today it is at the same time a modern hotel unit that offers you the ideal family residence experience.
It is housed in a traditional stone -built three -storey building, dominating the center of the village. But in a settlement so harmoniously integrated into the natural environment, center does not mean far from nature. On the contrary, the “central” is built on the edge of the ravine with most of its rooms enjoying its magnificent view.
A view you can also enjoy from the hotel’s roof garden. Its spaces are warm and simple elegant. They blend harmoniously with the traditional architectural view of the place, and are appropriately designed to provide excellent functionality to small and large guests.
Modern services and its extremely friendly atmosphere provide you with an unforgettable stay.

Undoubtedly one of the most imposing canyons in Greece full of rich nature and uninterrupted historical continuity! In addition to a place of high ecological importance, the canyon has also been declared archaeological site and is under the protection of the Ministry of Culture! The hiking in the Lucius Gorge starts from the New Philosopher Monastery. The trail passes through the Old Monastery of Philosophy and descends to the riverbed of the Lucius River. Our route then goes up to the Monastery of the Holy Forerunner, where we take a short break for rest. Here we have the opportunity to enjoy the amazing view with a Greek coffee, a common treat of the monks. After recovering our energy, we go down to Ancient Gortyn with its Asclepius, where our beautiful hike ends!

Our COVID-19 Health & Safety Plan
Below we have summarised our plan, with all the information you need for an enjoyable and safe classroom learning experience. We’ll update these procedures as things change and evolve, so be sure to check back here before you set off for the event. If you have any questions that aren’t answered here, please feel free to contact us.
- Social distancing
Class sizes have been limited to allow ample space between desks
The number of courses being delivered daily has been carefully managed to ensure that social distancing can be respected both in the classroom and in the common areas
Course start times have been staggered to limit the amount of people entering the building, breaking for lunch and leaving for the day at any one time. You can help us with this by arriving promptly (not late but not too early) for your class.
During breaktimes, we encourage you to take advantage of the variety of open spaces that are located at the Hotel. If you are unable to go outside due to the weather, we’ll ask you to stay in the classroom to restrict the number of people moving around/gathering in the corridors, stairwells and bathrooms.
The hotel ensures extra sanitisation will take place throughout each day of frequent contact spaces including the reception desk, the lift, entrance doors and handrails, bathrooms, tables and seats
Our team will use cleaning products and protocols which are approved to effectively fight against viruses, bacteria and pathogens on all equipment and surfaces. We’ll continue to explore additional sanitation tools and stay abreast of the most effective methods and products to use.
Where possible, doors and windows will remain open to increase fresh air flow
- Keeping our team safe
Our employees will undergo regular training on COVID-19 safety and sanitation protocols
Our team is here to support you, so please feel free to ask any questions throughout your course. All we ask is that you follow social distancing guidelines when speaking to our staff, particularly before and after sessions when there can be a temptation to gather in larger groups.
- Stairwells and corridors
If you are able, please use the stairs (rather than the lift) when moving around the building, keeping the lift available for those who need it
If you do need to use the lift, please do so one person at a time
Students and staff will be discouraged from pausing for too long on the stairs or landings, to allow everyone to respect social distancing
If you need to cross someone on the stairs, please do so on the landings where there is space for you to keep a safe distance from the other person
- Fitness Classes
The classroom has been rearranged to meet social distancing guidelines and our class capacities have been adjusted to reflect this. Upon arrival, please choose a desk and take a seat. Just because you have a desk to yourself, don’t let this stop you saying hello to the people around you!
