Villas vs Hotels in Thassos

When planning an escape to the quiet and inviting island of Thassos, there are plenty of exciting aspects of your holiday to think about. One of the most crucial is accommodation, however, and Thassos has plenty of options open to you.

Pick your holiday style

While family-run hotels in winding harbour town streets rule the day in Thassos Town, the coastal retreats of the soothing and aptly named Golden Beach offer livelier resort complexes.

That said, Thassos has lots to see. Even for a small island, there are over 20 beaches, as well as lush green landscapes at the island's heart. As such, villas tucked away amid these inspiring patches of scenery, or at the outskirts of the island's characterful towns, hold plenty of appeal.

Villas make it very much your holiday

The most immediate advantage of holidaying in Thassos via a villa is that you're afforded a great deal of autonomy.

Your villa will include a wide range of modern comforts, including a fully outfitted kitchen, a TV and a spacious living room. Given that this is Thassos, it's likely that you've got some nice views outside too, wherever on the island your home from home is.

A villa gives you the freedom to come and go as you like, without having to worry about mealtimes or other concerns. You can step outside, spend the day on the beach or exploring the shopping of Thassos Town, and head back late at night after some drinking and dancing in a local bar you'd never have discovered otherwise.

Villas also give you the chance to be free of worrying about crowds. It's just you and your nearest and dearest here, making your own meals and planning your days with ease and freedom.

At breakfast time, nobody's standing beside you as you dish up some bacon, and you can eat whenever you want instead of sticking to a schedule.

Hotels are tailored to your holiday bliss

While villas offer many advantages, hotels have plenty of their own too.

Hotels in Thassos lean towards the more compact and stylish, mixing classic Greek inspiration with modern ideas. As such, you can expect a great deal of evening entertainment, together with amenities to make your life easier such as bicycle hire or details on local events.

Similarly, hotels like the plush Alea Hotel and Suites enable you to enjoy superbly mixed cocktails and fully cooked meals that make the most of top culinary talent. The compact and bijoux Lido Hotel dishes up continental breakfasts in a poolside garden – a garden which also provides the mint for their mojitos.

Hotels also offer plenty of facilities, from pools and gym equipment through to libraries, entertainment rooms with pool tables, or spas to rejuvenate in - like that of the Blue Dream Palace Hotel.

What's more, you're in the heart of the community at a hotel, because they're built and designed specifically to be where the tourists will want to roam. That means the historic district with its grand architecture, the shops with their souvenirs and, of course, the splendour of the beach are all a short stroll away.

Naturally, there's also the benefit of having many holidays to Thassos including a free transfer from the ferry to the hotel where you're staying. That said, both villas and hotels offer a massive range of perks for holidaymakers looking to enjoy Thassos, and as an island destination altogether it's tricky to beat.
