WHO WE ARE – THE HISTORY AND THE NAME OF OUR HOTEL.
St. George Hotel & suites, is located in Nea Styra , South Evia.
Ιt is a small touristic family business, owned by the George and Theodora Tzanis family.
The unit was fully completed in its current form in 2015.
This place, created with a lot of passion and taste stands for a “seaside shelter” and makes you escape from routine in a really different world you owe to yourself. Luxurious reception halls and fully furnished rooms, combine comfort and refined taste
The comfortable space, the built-in beds, the warmth of their aesthetics and the traditional way of the construction in combination with the magnificent sea view, are ideal both for the romantic evenings of a couple as well as for the moments of family relaxation . Here the senses are awakened by the wonderful colors and smells of nature…
The whole construction of the complex is inspired by the local architecture and is based on the famous stone of Karystos, in complete harmony with the surrounding area, so that visitors feel “as if they are in their second home”.
THE NAME OF THE HOTEL (WHEN THE MYTH MEETS HISTORY).
During the German-Italian occupation, , the Germans burned the paternal house of George Tzanis, except for the very few things that escaped the flames. Among them was the icon of Agios Georgios, the only wooden thing that did not turn into ashes.
This icon, work of a lay hagiographer, of 1911, as he signs at the bottom right, is today a valuable family heirloom.
We do not know if it was a coincidence that this icon was miraculously saved or a clear message and wish of the important Saint of our Orthodoxy, but this is how this situation was interpreted by the family and so HIS name was given to the hotel to honor our Saint!
