Kimolos Island, Greece.
The island offers only basic lodging. Sardis Rooms at Aliki is pleasantly set near the island’s south-facing beach; the rooms are simple, and there is a taverna run by the owners (T. 22870 51458).
Nearer to habitation, Villa Maria on the road between the harbour and Chorió (T. 22870 51392, fax 51752, www. hellasislands.gr/kimolos/villa maria) is an inexpensive and welcoming alternative.
