It is very sad to learn from the Xenia Hotel website that it will probably not be open this summer. This is because the owner, Giannis Braos, died without a will, and the wider family has not found a resolution to ownership of the hotel. Let’s hope that they can come to some arrangement soon so that the Xenia does’t sit empty for years like the Alkyon did. And while the Xenia’s restaurant was a separate business, it has not opened either. This situation is very bad for the whole village as well as for the individuals employed there.
