Kos is a Greek island close to the shore of Turkey. From the city of Kos with its beautiful buildings and narrow shopping streets and markets, to the extensive beaches and harbours – with plenty in between – Kos offers a variety of Greek treats waiting to be discovered. The fascinating history and mythology which captures the whole of Greece is just as evident in Kos as anywhere else. Supposedly home to the most important doctor of ancient times and the founder of medicine, Hippocrates forms a big part of the heritage of Kos, as well as mythology concerning Hercules. The luxury accommodation provided in Kos is of a very high standard, with views of distant mountains as well as the beautiful blue seas and intriguing architecture.
