Welcome to Pyrgos House, the specialist in walking holidays and small-scale accommodations on the Greek island of Kythira.
We are Frank van Weerde and Thom Schults and, since 2003, we have been living on Kythira. In 2010, we opened the doors of our own home, Pyrgos House, a spacious and comfortable holiday home in Potamos. A year later we entered into partnership with a few other special accommodations. The key points of Pyrgos House (high quality small premises with a personal touch), have been the starting point to selecting these holiday homes.
Walking is our passion. From the first moment we came to Kythira, we mainly explored the island on foot. The extensive network of footpaths and the more than sixty villages make the island a unique and varied walking paradise. The nature is overwhelming and the peacefulness is soothing. We like to share our love for and our knowledge of Kythira with other Greek- and walking-lovers. Therefore, in January 2014, we started a small tourist office, with the same name: Pyrgos House. Our office Pyrgos House is located in Potamos, next to the church.
