In 1999 my father Themis Chantzis and our young family discovered a hidden gem of the Mediterranean which meant to change our lives for even and became our haven for the years to follow. During our family holidays a friend of ours invited us to discover Komitsa Bay. It was an isolated beach, 5 klm away from the nearest village with no inhabitants and majestic natural beauty.
When we arrived we were amazed by the treasure we had found and we decided to buy a small plot to build our family summer house. Then we decided to build a couple more houses to have some friends around and some years later we created one of the most important real estate projects of summer villas for sale in Greece called Ktima Chantzi.
In 2015 as an expansion of Ktima Chantzi we decided to create a Avaton Luxury Villas Resort where people coming from all over the world could visit it to discover Komitsa Bay and experience the Art of living well at Holy Mount Athos area.
Today, I manage the resort and I am always on premises to warmly welcome you in my home. As my father says: ‘After spending so many years of my life and watching my own kids growing up in this place that I have fully developed, welcoming guests in our resort feels more like welcoming them in our own home”.
Our resort is located next to the Holy Mount Athos an autonomous, monatsic state and an UNESCO World Heritage Monument with long hospitality tradition. All its monasteries have been welcoming and hosting visitors from all over the world for more than 1.600 years. The monks there try to provide a calm, relaxed and natural way of living for guests to find their inner piece. Inspired by the destination and this local tradition we try to fulfill every guests’ needs and wants by providing him a true spiritual and natural haven of aesthetic harmony.
After spending all my childhood summers in this region, I want my guests to create happy memories as I did myself. I would like them to create memories of care-free, summer holidays, in a unique natural environmen, in total peace and relaxation. Their vacations should be a milestone which will provide them with the energy needed to inspire the rest of their lives.
With my guests I always share my passion for discovering new, hidden places. I urge them and try to inspire them to discover the local area by getting a sailing boat and doing island hoping on Drenia isles, discover the picturesquare village of Arnaia and learn more about the local tradition of weaving. Visit Holy Mount Athos, a breathtaking experience with unique treasures and spiritual atmoshere which will travel them back in time.
