FilosXenia Ismaros Hotel is located in a tranquil scenic village of Maronia, at the cost of Thracian Sea in Rodopi region of Eastern Macedonia. Having rich local culture and history dating back to the times of the great Homer and its famous Odyssey, Maroneia is the appropriate destination for everyone who seeks for archaeological treasures, historical monuments, traditional villages, caves, aquatic areas, fascinating coasts and beauties of nature. Here in Omiros’s country where Kikkones used to live, the history never ends. From Odysseus who escaped the Cyclops Polyphemus by getting him drunk using the Maroneia’s wine (meliideas maronios oinos) until the period of Byzantium and until our times, marvellous monuments are the true witnesses who certify the big history of the place. Authorities believe that they have the duty to keep and promote all this history and protect all the goods nature has offered us. They feel the obligation to give to its residents the motive to stay at their place and never abandon it.

The well-organized beach of Imeros with its depthless sea and its golden sandy shore has its own lifeguard and a tourist kiosk. Every summer it is busy with visitors and even in spring, the small forest with the pine trees next to the sea is a very famous destination for school excursions. Arriving at the Imeros beach, you can turn right and visit the beautiful aquatic area of Imeros, located after the church of S. Marina. At that point, the river Filiouris flows into the sea.

The Picturesque Port Of S.Charalampos
After the area of Platanitis, the road leads to a crossing. The choices are two and whichever you choose the result is equally impressive. The right direction leads to the archaeological area of Maroneia and to the small picturesque port of S. Charalampos (5 km). The small port and its coloured surroundings remind us of a painting. The fishing boats in the mole, the imposing red fields all over the place when following the road to Kageles, the green land from the edge of the mountain Ismaros to the edge of the port, the green and blue waters create a unique, relaxing and peaceful environment for the visitor who can enjoy them while sitting at the fish taverns, tasting the delicious food. The small port has the ability to accept sailing vessels and crafts.
