In 1978, Kalliopi and Kostantinos Lioreisis built their understated bed and breakfast with a very provocative and modern red neon sign that read, “Pension Delfini.”  They didn’t have much to offer in the way of luxury, but they did offer their guests extraordinary hospitality by sharing their home and treating their guests like family.  Today, the Delfini continues to be managed by their son, Manolis Lioreisis.  Nestled on the hilltop of the fishing village named Diafani on the Dodecanese island of Karpathos and a short distance from the famous traditional village of Olympos.

Diafani is a small Greek seaside village situated in a bay on the north-east coast of Karpathos.  Karpathos is one of the Dodecanese islands in the Aegean sea between the islands of Crete and Rhodes.  The port of Diafani serves this northern area of Karpathos giving Ferry Boat access to the community of Diafani-Olympos from Rhodes or via the recently established Ferry Shuttle from the southern town of Karpathos to Diafani.  Additionally one can also take a  short flight from Athens or Rhodes to the airport in the south of the island or traverse over the precarious mountain via Taxi.  

The challenge of getting to Diafani only makes the arrival to this breath-taking village so much better, for locations like this one-off the beaten path are slowly but surely becoming a thing of the past as the much-anticipated road to Diafani is almost complete.
