Explore low-key Galaxidi, an atmospheric old town of cobbled streets and grand Neoclassical mansions set on the Gulf of Corinth on this private, full-day tour. There’s also the opportunity to visit a local beekeeper and taste traditionally produced honey.
Set in a former sea captain’s house that dates from 1890, Hotel Ganimede is a family-run property that offers a home away from home. A small pathway decorated with painted ceramic tiles and lined with pots of flowers leads off the street to an inner courtyard filled with wooden benches, sofas and shady trees.
The main building is decorated in traditional style and is home to eight of the eleven rooms. The remaining three rooms can be found on the other side of the courtyard. All the rooms differ in style and size and range from traditional rooms with antique furniture and period artwork to the Modern Suite which is decorated in contemporary style. Some rooms also have a small kitchenette and the large Traditional Suite can sleep up to five guests.
Chrisoula and Costas, the owners of the hotel, pride themselves on their award-winning breakfasts which consist of an abundant array of homemade treats including jams and fresh pastries with ingredients sourced from the area. The small, covered winter garden within the courtyard is a good place to relax and enjoy an evening drink.

Due to the historic nature of the property, each of the 11 rooms differs in size and shape. Rooms in the main house have large windows and high ceilings and are decorated in the traditional style of the area with dark wood furniture and wrought-iron bed frames. Other rooms are decorated in a modern style with contemporary furnishings. The studios feature a small kitchenette with a fridge and cooking facilities, while the large Traditional Suite is a good option for families with space for up to five guests. Air conditioning and Wi-Fi come as standard in all rooms.
The hotel is located on a quiet street in the heart of Galaxidi yet just a few minutes’ walk from shops, bars, restaurants and the promenade. Some rocky bathing areas can be found a ten-minute walk away and the pebble beach at Fokida is about a 30-minute walk away. The archeological site at Delphi can be reached in about 40 minutes by car.
Food and drink
Costas and Chrisoula are extremely proud of their award-winning breakfast which is served daily in the courtyard or inside during colder months. Breakfast is served at your table and is homemade using locally sourced ingredients. Dishes include jams and chutney, eggs to order, homemade pies, Greek yoghurt and a selection of local cheeses and cold cuts. Although there is no restaurant in the property, there is a wide selection of dining options just a few minutes’ walk away.
Due to the number of steps in the property this property is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.
We love Hotel Ganimede for its simple charm and warm, welcoming atmosphere. Located in the heart of Galaxidi, it offers a great base to explore the town and its nearby attractions.
