CHIOS - KAMPOS ..in Perleas farm here in Kampos Chios, the only sounds that you can hear is the singing of the birds and the murmur of the tree leaves. There are orange trees, tangerine trees and lemon trees all around us, filling the air with splendid aromas...

Kampos welcomes us again, a mysterious and magical maze of tall walls and narrow lanes, with its old mansions and its own history.... In such a mansion is Perleas estate…

CHIOS - EXTRAORDINARY HOTEL MANAGER & ORGANIC PRODUCT CULTIVATOR

…Inside Kampos, there is one of the most ideal agrotourism units. Perleas is a renovated estate within a four-acre paradise garden. Older, more beautiful, and with a cistern full of water lilies… Rooms are all spacious. And the whole harmoniously ties in to the environment. Aesthetically grand but simple, it is a very charming counterpoint that characterizes the whole estate. If you go to Chios, I recommend that you stay there at least one night.

CHIOS - HOSPITALITY WITH PURE NOBILITY

…Today I want to speak of Kampos and of Perleas, that filled my eyes and my heart with beauty… Kampos is neither village, nor town. Its organization is, I believe, a unique phenomenon in the whole of Greece… The alleyways are like the stone sluices of a story-book town where you abandon yourself to the essences of orange blossoms… It isn't possible to describe the beauty of Perleas mansion, it's immense nobility… However, I can say that the spoon sweets and the marmalades made there are exquisite. Greece is not only mousaka. There are people cultivate, cook and offer the real image of their land…

OLD TIME CHIOS - ROOM WITH A VIEW

A four-acre farming estate dating from 1640, flower gardens, fruit trees, cisterns with water lilies… As you close behind you the massive gate of Perleas Estate in Chios, you enter another dimension…

A feast for the eyes. Orange, lemon and mandarin trees, olives and flowers. And then aromas burst in the air. You have never experienced so many fragrances before. They weave into the damp earth of the orchard making your head spin.

NOBILTÀ DI CAMPAGNA

I mercanti più ricchi abitavano però a Kambos, nelle le belle dimore in stile rinascimentale ligure, i muri decorati a fasce di pietra locale di colore diverso, i vialetti a mosaico, le vasche d'acqua e i pergolati, il pozzo azionato con l'argano e gli agrumeti: un vasto luogo di delizie.

Tutta la fertile regione di Kambos, 7 chilometri dalla cittadina di Chios, dove sorgono queste splendide proprietà, possiede una grazia particolare per via delle recinzioni in pietra rossastra che le circondano. Oggi molti discendenti delle antiche famiglie non vivono più qui e il commercio della masticha non rende come una volta; così, alcuni archontikà sono diventati una via di mezzo fra albergo, agriturismo e residenza nobiliare di campagna per ospiti paganti. La palma del miglior archontikò spetta a Perleas Mansioni sette appartamenti distribuiti in tre differenti edifici, tra un giardino di agrumi, gelsomini, glicini e ibischi. Al mattino, colazione con frutta di campo, miele, yogurt serviti nella corte vicino alla grande ruota del pozzo; la sera, si può prenotare una cena raffinata, nel patio, sotto tigli secolari, illuminati da luci discrete, nel profumo intenso degli agrumi e delle rose, trascinato dal leggero vento di Chios
