Room with a View
An evening bayside view from the balcony of our spacious two-level room at Casa Delfino invigorates me to get dressed to enjoy the evening. A five minute walk through the cobblestone narrow streets of Old Town and we find ourselves along the romantic waterfront which curves around to a lighthouse on the point of the bay. A buffet of flavors to explore and enjoy---of coffee shops, delis & cafes, boutiques, restaurants, and ice cream parlors or nightclubs. In addition to the harbor, beaches and hiking trails are a short walk from the graceful Casa Delfino Hotel. This authentic hotel and spa was once the residence of the local family who gave the home as a dowry to their daughter, Margaritte, who along with her sea captain groom raised six children there. It fell into ruin after World War II and a 5th generation descendent made it his mission to remodel the Delfino home into an elegant boutique hotel. Instead of thinking "that's Greek to me", I learn to say "good afternoon" and "please" and "thank you" in Greek. That feat of memorization and practice earned me a free ice cream cone with one of the local vendors!
