I visited Halki for the first time in 2005 and since then we have been visiting every single year, being in love with the unique ambience and relaxed feeling you get as soon as you step on the harbour of Nimborio.

In 2011 we decided to buy this marvellous old mansion and turn it into the signature villa of the island.

Halki (or Chalki) is part of a 12 islands complex (known as 'Dodekanese') located on the South Eastern part of the Aegean Sea. Picturesque Halki looks like a studio movie scene. The neoclassic houses are built amphitheatre around the port of Nimborio, the only part of the island which is inhabited.

There is also the “old village” which has been abandoned many years ago. It surrounds the ancient castle which was built more than 800 years ago to protect the island from the Pirates. The “old village” was characterized as cultural landmark by UNESCO and thus, its architectural integrity is protected. Nimporio falls under the same law therefore all renovations that have been made preserve and maintain the unique character of Halki’s village.

things to do in Halki

A trip to Halki is a trip to history. The people of Halki are mainly fishermen. This becomes immediately obvious with all the colourful fishing boats anchored all around the port. Between April and October, the visitors can find a couple of grocery stores, a traditional bakery and a few taverns. You will have the opportunity to eat fresh fish and the world famous 'garidaki' (tiny shrimps) and to taste the most delicious thyme-honey in the country.

Even during wintertime, that the local population decreases drastically, the tranquillity and relaxing feeling that the visitor gets, remains unforgettable!

You can walk around the narrow stone streets with the boucambillies or you can even walk up to the “ old village”, visit the castle and the Byzantine church of Virgin Mary. The church has a big feast on August 15th, lasting for two consecutive nights. On the eve, the whole island gathers up on the castle hill, eating and dancing traditional dances all night long. The same party is repeated on the 15th down on the island's harbour (called 'piazza' by the locals)

The biggest religious feast on the island takes place on August 29th for “Saint John Alarga”. As on the 15th, the eve of St. John's day a big celebration takes place at a remote monastery up on the mountains on the west side of the island. On the 29th, the whole island -including a few hundreds of visitors- say their cheerful goodbyes to August, the busiest month of the year.

Swimming in the crystal clear aquamarine water around the port and the various small beaches scattered in the island is an experience you should not miss. And if you are adventurous enough, take a boat ride around the island or explore further the nearby island of Alimnia, with its beautiful natural harbor, used as a submarine base from the Italians during II World War. Alimnia was inhabited by Halki people up to 1973.
