Approaching Stivari on the road from Delavoyia beach to Batsi
Below is a directory of accommodations in and near Stivari, including website and Facebook pages (where available). There are other places to stay besides the ones I mention; however, those listed below are the only properties that I was able to find easily with Google searches. When we walked through Stivari, we saw signs advertising rooms to let on several buildings, but I didn’t come across any online information for any of them.
This list does not include any accommodations in Batsi, which has dozens of options most of which are within short walking distance of Stivari.
