Farmhouse | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
"Paradosiako Angelou" is a traditional two storied house located in the area of Lakki in an orchard of olive trees and grape vines.
When it was built, in the beginning of the century, it was used as the farm house of the family while the main residence of the family was in the town of Platanos. In the early 70's my father Theologos converted it to a guest house known as "The Angelou's Guesthouse". At that time it was one of the few "hotels" of the island along with the "Leros Hotel" at Lakki that was bilt by the Italians during World War II, lying abandoned today. Since that time we have made constant efforts to maintain both the house it's self and the atmosphere of times in the past.Conveniently located 300 meters outside the town of Lakki offering our residents peace and privacy while only a few minutes walk from town. With four big bedrooms on the top floor and another two on the lower floor it comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests.

About this location
The Dodecanese region
The island complex of Dodecanese in south-eastern Aegean is the sunniest corner in Greece.
Twelve large islands and numerous smaller ones with crystal clear waters, sandy or pebbly beaches, important archaeological finds, imposing Byzantine and medieval monuments and unique traditional settlements are waiting to be discovered.
If you are desperately seeking to discover lesser-known, unspoiled destinations visit Leros.
According to mythology, this is the island of Artemis (Diana), the goddess of forests and hunting. It is ideal for peaceful vacation, while you will be amazed by its impressive architecture, clean coasts and the imposing castle of Panaghia, on Apitiki hill. The picture is completed with the hidden bays, hills, pine-trees forests, olive groves, and the law plain areas full of water springs. The history of the island is dating from Neolithic times. During antiquity, it was part of the ionic area, while during Palaeochristian period (5th – 7th cent.) several settlements were built on the island's coast. From 1309 until 1522 the island passed under the Knights' -and subsequently- the Turkish rule. The period of Italian occupation began in 1912. The Italians exploited the strategic location of the island along with its natural harbor. Leros was finally united with Greece in 1948, while during Civil War and dictatorship (1967-1974) it was used as an exile destination. The island extends over a surface of 54 km2, its coastline is 71 km long and it has 8,500 inhabitants. It can be reached by ferry from Piraeus Port, the islands of northern and eastern Aegean and several Dodecanese islands or by airplane from the Athens International Airport, «Eleftherios Venizelos».
