Zeytinliköy – Aya Teodoroi
Our hotel is located in the center of Zeytinliköy, which hosts the most visitors of Gökçeada.
Zeytinliköy; belki de size “Gökçeada’ya geldiğime değdi” hissi verecek ilk yerdir. Zeytinliköy, Gökçeada merkezine en yakın Rum köyüdür. Bir tepenin yamacında, zeytin ağaçları arasında kurulmuş, daha çok Rum vatandaşlarımızın yaşadığı şirin bir köydür.
Yaz, kış ziyaretçisi olan, ziyaretçiler tarafından oldukça ilgi gören Zeytinliköy, mimarisiyle de etkileyicidir. Zakkum çiçeklerinin süslediği Yıkık taş evlerin yanında oldukça iyi restore edilmiş evleriyle de hayranlık uyandıran, adanın en güzel köylerindendir. .
It was one of the most social places of the island in the time of Zeytinliköy. Now it is one of the most visited villages due to its many cafes. It has been a long time tradition to visit the village to drink coffee. It is seen that the environment has become more colorful with the cafes opened by the Greeks who have returned to their villages from Greece in recent years. On their menu, they definitely have pudding coffee, gummy custard and frappe. Most of the villages are gathered in the small square. But they also appear in the streets of the village. Greeks decorate their cafes with flowers of all kinds…
The number of people living in summer and winter is around 50-60. As the name suggests, it is surrounded by many olive trees. 3 km from the center. The village is one of the four protected villages. Agios Georgios Church, the island's oldest church, is in this village. Bartholomeos 1, the spiritual leader of 300 million Orthodox Christians in the world, was born in 1940 in Zeytinli. Bartholomeos, who was declared a Patriarch in 1991, comes to visit the house where he was born several times a year.
Zeytinliköy’de köyün girişinde yer alan meyhaneler, doğayla içiçe oturabileceğiniz keyifli mekânlar bulunmaktadır. Eğer yolunuz sonbaharda köye düşerse, anayoldan köye sapan yolu sağlı sollu sarmış böğürtlenlerden tatmadan geçmeyin !
