Another popular destination in the South is Potos. Our brand name is called after this village as our very first retail shop was opened here! Potos is one of the well-known villages on the island and is located 43 kilometres away from Limenas. Taxi service to Potos lasts approximately 50 minutes from Limenas port (Thassos town).
As Potos is relatively densely populated in some parts –especially in the centre, it is sometimes difficult to drive through the village with larger vehicles i.e. with a long minibus. When arranging your taxi/transfer, we ask for your understanding and cooperation in meeting us at the closest convenient place in the proximity of your accommodation. Please let us know in advance if you have special needs or if you are carrying extra equipment with you. It is also very important that you provide us with the correct accommodation details. As in Thassos, we don’t have street addresses, it is very useful to send us the “google map” location. Apart from big hotels, there are many private properties/houses for rent which are not always easy to locate.
Our driver will pick you up at the agreed place and time by holding a paper sign with your name. If you have any difficulties in finding him, stay calm and contact us on our customer service line 24/7 +30 698 301 48 99. Viber / Whatsapp is also available for your convenience.
