An amazing place to stay
This is easily one of the most peaceful places to stay with incredible views of the volcano, and at night of the stars. The apartment if beautifully presented, very stylish, and includes basics (e.g. olive oil, salt, water).

Easily the most beautiful time and place in Greece
I've been traveling in Greece since the 1980s and this is without question the most beautiful place I have been to so far. The ruin parts of Emporio village in which Melanopetra is embedded instantly transport you outside of time and space, so even a short stay feels like a long and peaceful time. The house itself is a total gem, extremely tasteful and comfortable, airy, quiet and with a view from the top of the mountain onto the sea. The loudest noise I heard there was a relaxed yawn from a distant neighbor. The only restaurant in the village has a stunning view of the volcano and the food is delicious. We will definitely visit again.

The Best accomodation on the Island of Nissyros
If you look for something bit better than a standard room you are right in Melanopetra. The silence, the amazing view, and the stylish interior are some of the points you will come back again.

About the neighbourhood
Emporios is a picturesque preserved traditional village on the rim of the caldera situated at an altitude of about 400m, overlooking the Aegean Sea and Volcano. It was mostly abandoned and many houses are in ruins, but recently began to revive and turn into an alternative destination for artistic and sophisticated public. Nisyros is an island that has preserved an authentic atmosphere seemingly untouched by time and crass commercialization and offers a rare experience to eclectic guests.
Getting around
Perched dramatically on a hill the settlement extends around the medieval core where ruins from the Pantoniki castle and the Taxiarches church remain. The local architecture is formed of stone terraced houses. Emporios, strategically located in the middle of Nisyros between the capital - port of Nisyros and Nikia – Volcano, is the perfect base for exploring the island. It is almost equidistant from most important destinations and sights: 8-9km far from the port, Mandraki Village, Palloi seaside village and the beaches, 4km from Nikia Village and 2km from volcano caldera.
Access
Car required
How to get there
Ways to reach the island: there are daily flights from Athens to Kos, and from April to October there are daily flights connecting various European cities to Kos wherefrom are is operated daily service to Nisyros by boat – one-hour long from Kardamaina, two-hours long from the central port of Kos. Alternatively, there is direct shipping access from Piraeus twice a week (14-hour journey).
