Glorious Kardamena is a short walk away
Popular hotel with solos guests
Come and join us on a sun holiday to the stunning Greek Dodecanese Island of Kos. We stay at the 4★ Aegean Village Hotel; a firm Solo’s favourite. Located on the hillside, the hotel offers stunning views of the sea. With the beautiful village of Kardamena just minutes away, we can be sure to have the perfect summer break.
Please note that as the hotel sits on a hillside, we would not recommend this holiday for people with walking difficulties.
As is so often the origin of vibrant resorts, Kardamena began life as a sleepy fishing village with only a handful of tavernas. If only the original fishermen could see it now!
A multitude of shops, bars and restaurants have paved the way for a thriving and buzzing tourist resort. What has not changed, however, is the friendly welcome and genuine hospitality.
Our hotel is located within steps of an inviting sandy beach with crystal clear waters, for soaking up the rays. Alternatively, chill out beside the Olympic-sized hotel pool, using little more energy than is required for devouring a delicious Greek salad.
Predominantly flat and only 64km long, Kos is easily navigable for budding explorers. Jump on a bicycle and pedal around the coast, or take the leisurely option on an island tour or sailing trip. Out and about there’s plenty to do. A must-see is the island’s capital, ‘Kos Town’ on the western coast.

You may wish to take an optional excursion during the course of your stay. Listed below are just a few of the tours which may be on offer to you depending on the season. Full details will be given at the Information Meeting. The prices quoted, are a guideline only, as these can vary, depending on numbers etc. All tours should be paid for in cash euros. The exact amount will be given at your Information Meeting. Your Tour Leader will help arrange these for you but may not necessarily accompany you.
Docking at the attractive harbour town of Pothia on the famous sponge island of Kalymnos, you will be mesmerised by the tiny coloured houses, arranged on the hillside, with life in the port bustling below. You will have the chance to see for yourselves how natural sponges are processed and learn the history and techniques of local sponge fishermen. Second port of call will be at the deserted island of Plati, perhaps take a swim, whilst your BBQ lunch is being prepared on board. Finally docking at the 50 people island of Pserimos, where the long sandy shores gently slopes into the blue crystal sea. Approximate cost: €30, incl. BBQ lunch (drinks not included)
Visit to the island of Nissyros
Cruising around the coastline of Kos you will catch your first glimpse of the magical island of Nissyros. Stepping onto the coach, you will venture up into the heart of Polyvotis. Near to the mouth of the volcano you will feel the force of the lava rumbling beneath your feet, witness the bubbling mud pools and steaming geezers. You have time to enjoy the blue and white painted harbor town of Mandraki with its narrow cobbled streets winding their way up to the Monastery of Panagia. Approximate cost: €30 including transportation and entrance to the volcano (lunch not included)
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.
Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00 per week. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate add on.
Casual, cotton, lightweight daytime wear is the order of the day. Comfortable shoes are a must for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evening, with the emphasis throughout being informal but with NO VESTS OR SHORTS (LONG TROUSERS ONLY) in the restaurants in the evenings. Early and late season evenings can be cool so do ensure that you take a cardigan or jacket and even some rainwear – particularly in May and June when you may experience some spring thunderstorms followed by scorching days! A beach towel can be hired from the hotel at a cost of €3 per week and can be changed daily (a further returnable €15 deposit will be required at the start of the week).

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
Had the best time with Solos! Discovered beautiful destinations and met some lifelong friends.
