Evi's traditional house is a home full of history. It was constructed by the grandfather of my father as a gift to his wife. Since then the house passed from generation to generation and it is considered to be a true symbol of the history of our family and by the moment you open the door you can step back in time. The tradition, the architecture, the antiques and the family heirlooms are well combined in order to create a unique atmosphere that makes you feel part of the history.

Lo spazio
The two-storeyed house has been lovingly restored and authentically crafted to give the feeling of stepping back in time. There are two entrances, a wooden front door into the house that locks with traditional way of brazier and a second door behind leading directly into a private courtyard, filled with vegetables and climbing plants, creating a secluded “garden”. Stonework creates a grand facade and the wooden floor and windows on the second floor along with the traditional furniture, the antiques and the magnificent fireplaces convey a unique feeling.

As far as the village is concerned, Theologos
Theologos, which means 'the Theologian' or 'the word of God,' is one of the most renowned villages of Thassos, attracting visitors from far and near, both because of its long history, and because of its spectacular location and the natural beauty of the area in which it’s built.

In the distant past, the mountain villages of Thassos were established, developed and existed independently of one another since communication between them was almost impossible. Due to the lack of any organized road network or any other infrastructure, it took days to travel from one village to another, either by mule or on foot along footpaths, mountain trails and often goat tracks.

The very first written testimony known to exist, regarding the village of Theologos, was set down in the year 1287. The testimony, made by Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos, mentioned that the Monastery of Philotheou on Mount Athos had a dependency located where the village stands today. The dependency was named John the Theologian, which is the apparent origin of the village's name, and which later became the administrative capital of Thassos and remained so up until the Ottoman era.

Ottoman Turks settled in Theologos between 1479 and 1538. From then it began to evolve into a large village with two settlements "Upper and Lower Town', with two parishes and two schools. The residents maintained their very close connections with the coastal settlements of Potos and Astris where they owned land.

On March 30, 1813 the area was granted to governor Mehmet Ali Pasha of Egypt, who loved the island of Thassos thanks to his life-long connections with the island. Theologos underwent rapid development during this time period and because it had been gifted to Ali Pasha, it retained its relative autonomy and was governed by a local leader, a kind of prime minister - Bass Tsorbatzis, Chatzistamati, Hatzigeorgio and Hatzigiannis amongst the greatest of them.

The chieftain, Hatzigeorgio, became an emblematic figure for the village by declaring a revolution and repelling the Turkish warships from Psara. However, the area's final release from foreign rule back to the Greeks came only on October 18, 1912 after many years of bloody struggles.

In modern history, Theologos was declared the cultural capital of Thassos in 1979 on account of its remaining as a traditional settlement. Visitors can tour the village by walking along the paved main road which runs through the village, visit the folklore museum with its many important exhibits of folk clothing, tools and architecture, and visit the home of prolific author Vassilis Vassilikos Thasitis.

At every step, the visitor feels the incredible influence of centuries of history, which the present village resiliently endured and of which reminders can be found at every corner. For example, the arched bridge - in the style of continental European architecture - just outside the village, and the churches of Agia Paraskevi and Agios Dimitrios (built in 1803 AD) with their impressive and elaborately carved iconostasis. Similar carvings can be seen in the small chapels of Panagouda and Archangelos. This unique Byzantine style dominates the area dating back to 1430 AD and is unique to Eastern Macedonia and Thrace, the region in which Thassos is located.

The nearby waterfalls of 'Kefalogournas' and the old limestone ovens take one back to the olden days, when the local people found that nature and local resources provided for most of their everyday needs.

In Summer, many tourists flood the village to sample its many unique charms. Residents are actively involved in local culture clubs, striving to make the island's traditions known to its visitors, and to bring them closer to the spirit of Thassos. These clubs hold various events throughout the year, especially during the summer months.
By taking part in some of the local events and celebrations (events in the ancient theatre, events in the house of monks "kalogeriko", the celebration of kazavitiana, astrocamping, honey festival, Thassian wedding and the jumbing of the fire in Theologos, the traditional production of local drink called tsipouro from local grapes and the production of local olive oil in Theologos and the music workshops in Limenaria) you'll get close to the locals and witness what open-hearted and hospitable people they are.


In the tavernas all around the village, one can enjoy unique traditional, local products, with the honey of Thassos and traditional sweets and pasties, typical wedding fare, and snack to one’s heart’s content. Other culinary delights to feast on include the delicious spit roast lamb – a mouth-watering local speciality that every taverna here offers and we whole heartily recommend.

Finally, if you are attached to nature and physical activities you can try hiking, cycling or riding a horse in the mountain. Moreover, if you want to combine the harmony of the mountain with the excitement of the sea, the touristic area of Potos is ten minutes away by car and there you can explore the sandy beaches with the crystal waters of the southern area of the island where you are able to try different activities based on water(water sports, scuba diving, fishing, daytrip with boat around the island) or you can njoy a cool drink or a tasty meal next to the beach and watch the sunset on the horizon or you can experience the appealing nightlife at the numerous bars and night clubs.

Accesso per gli ospiti
They are allowed to have access in every single point of the accommodation.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
The accommodation has an internal stairway that connects the first with the second floor. There are two entances and due to the fact that the front entrance locks with the traditional way and visitors are not familiar with this style we advise them to enter the house from the modern door behind . The accommodation has,also, barbeque.
