Villa Joy Experience

Whether With Family Or Friends,
Something To Satisfy Every Palette
Wandering the historic, narrow streets of Patmos Chora before sunset, is a unique experience for a lucky few. The maze of alleyways with tumbling bougainvillea and white washed homes is set under the fortified monastery that dates back to the 10th c AD and has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The island attracts a great variety of people, from nature or religious travelers to the international jet set or simply those seeking something different. One thing for certain is that each person who visits the island, finds a sense of serenity that seduces or inspires travelers to return once more. The unique fjord-like coastline, the important historical sites as well as its unspoilt simplicity, add to its majestic allure.

Villa Joy embodies the Patmos experience of timeless, simple sophistication for an idyllic getaway.
Spiritual Island Experience

When approaching the main town of Skala, the most noticeable feature is the monastery of St John the Evangelist that crowns the hill of Chora. The island became famous after St John wrote the book of Apocalypse from a cave you can still visit today. Thousands of Christians from all over the world flock to the island each year, to visit this sacred and mystical cave and monastery. Other monasteries include the women’s monastery of Evangelistria, built later on in 1613, which is also available to visit.
