Welcome to Astris 


At Astris you will find our Head Office, here we also have our own petrol station (incl. LPG gas) called ‘Thassos Oil’ and it is located on the main coastal road.  Collection of your vehicle couldn’t be easier allowing you to collect your vehicle and continue on to your final destination without any fuss or problems.

We are open 7 days a week from 08:00 am to 22:00 pm. After hours services are subject to a 15 euro charge and a pre-booking is required to collect your vehicle. In case of emergency, we provide 24/7 assistance on our emergency number 0030 698 301 48 99.

We try our best to make the pick-up and return of your vehicle as easy as possible whether you arrive at our office or need to be collected from your hotel and you can be sure of a punctual and personal service. Your clean and fully-maintained vehicle will be waiting for you when you arrive and returning your vehicle is a simple process too. We’ll even take you back to your hotel if required! 

When collecting your vehicle please remember to have your documents, driving license and passport/ ID card with you. For those travelling with children we offer baby/child seats and boosters, please make sure that you tell us your needs at the time of booking.

We strongly recommend our customers to pre-book their vehicle at least 2-4 days before arrival especially during high season July/August when the availability can be very limited due to high demand.

When picking up your hire vehicle why not take the time to check out the surrounding area, heading south west and just a couple of kilometers away is the beautiful sandy beach of Psili Ammos ‘the bay of fine sand’; it is a very popular destination and gets very busy during high season. Car parking can be found just off the main road across from the beach. The next place on your journey is Potos which is a vibrant, busy little resort with a cosmopolitan feel and an abundance of restaurants, tavernas and shops. There is a cash machine on the main coastal road opposite the point at which the road turns into the resort. As you drive on, the next beach resort is Pefkari, which boasts restaurants, tavernas and beach bars that line a beautiful sandy/pebbly beach. Just a few kilometers away lies the picturesque Metalia beach, with its crystal clear sea, beach bar and dramatic shoreline. 

Just round the headland is Limenaria, the second largest town on the island. It has a beautiful harbour and a long promenade with plenty of restaurants, tavernas, coffee shops and sandy beaches. 

Heading inland from Potos you will find the mountain village of Theologos, which is well worth a visit, here you will find churches, restaurants and tavernas all set amongst picturesque stone houses. 

Heading south east on the main coastal road and a short distance out of Astris is Giola, which is a natural rock pool and a very popular destination. First you have to traverse a dirt road which leads to a small beach. The dirt road which goes down to the left is only accessible by a Jeep 4 x 4. There are plenty of signs and markings showing the way to the pool once you reach the top, but the journey by foot to the pool should not be taken lightly especially in high season. Further south east and approximately 9 km from Potos you will reach the Monastery of Archangelos, it’s the largest monastery on the island and built on a rock overlooking the sea. It offers wonderful rugged coastal views. Next stop is picturesque Aliki with its pretty bay lined with restaurants and tavernas and archaeological ruins, parking here is premium due to its popularity.
