Kos; one of the larger islands which make up the Dodekanese group, spread throughout the blue waters of the Aegean sea, is perhaps a rather misunderstood island.

Whilst it is undoubtedly one of the busiest of all Greek islands, and there are a lot of large hotels and ‘mass’ tourism, there is also a wonderfully Greek and quiet side that it worth exploring by even the hardiest small island hoppers.

Kos is often mentioned as a useful base for the independent traveller since so many other islands are easily accessible from here: Rhodes, Kalymnos, Nissyros, Patmos, Leros, Simi, Pserimos, Astypalea to name a few.

Mastihari has also become a busy thoroughfare for climbers going to Kalymnos with our regular and reliable ferries!




Back to Mastichari though which is a small village on the North side of the island.

Over the years we have gathered up quite a lot of different accommodation options for those who choose to travel independently and want a relaxing, informal holiday.

 The following pages show you not only what you can book through Mastihari Uncovered, but also, give you an idea of what Mastihari offers for your holiday. Your time is too precious to waste so we am giving you as much accurate information as we possibly can to avoid the possibility of disappointment and dissatisfaction.





The accommodation we am offering you is exactly that which is shown in the photographs. Nothing more. Nothing less.

If we say that a room has a sea view, it has a sea view which doesn't necessitate leaning over the balcony to get a glimpse of a blue line 2 miles away.

If the accommodation is near a road which may cause a small amount of disturbance, then you can be sure that it will not be on the M25. If we write that the beach is a 5 minute walk away then it is exactly that.

Car hire can be arranged through our office, Mastihari Holidays, which is reputable and offers fully-serviced and well maintained vehicles with, of course, full insurance.




Fancy having a go at windsurfing, sailing or kiting? Special beginners courses are available as well as fun and enjoyment for those of you with more experience who can already stand up on a windsurf board and aren't afraid of flying through the air with a kite!!

Included in the website is information about other places and islands that are worth visiting while you are here, be they on Kos or neighbouring islands.

We have also tried to paint a picture of local life that goes on throughout the year - not just in summer.




Quite simply, we at Mastihari Uncovered and Mastihari Holidays would like to provide a service for independent-minded travellers, whilst taking away some of the risk and searching which can be involved.

Hopefully, whether you book anything with us or not, you will enjoy reading the following pages and it may at least help to give you some idea as to what we have to offer in the village which we call home, and perhaps attract you to visit Greece at some time.




This site is updated periodically so keep an eye on what is new but for daily information you can follow Mastihari Uncovered on Facebook  and Twitter, where there is a steady stream of new photos and information.





Mastihari Uncovered office in the village is Mastihari Holidays where you can call in with any questions or queries you may have about your booking, or for general information.

Thanks for visiting Mastihari Uncovered and hopefully we will meet at some time in the future.


Mastihari Holidays Team.
