Rouchotas Apartments are owned by the Rouchotas family, one of the oldest families on the island and one of 432 families who, due to their influence and work, had their oikosimo, the coat of arms. Also called parlata – those who speak, through different colors and symbols, the coat of arms tell the story of the family and its influence on the island.
This is our story
The shape of the lions shows us that the coat of arms dates from 1719, during the rule of the Venetian Republic and the feudal system of government. From the shape of the crown, it can be seen that the ancient ancestor had the title of duke, as well as the castle and his army. The two lions symbolize two war victories, power, bravery and generosity, but the red color of the tongue means that the title was obtained after death. In Kefalonia, his descendants settled on the Paliki peninsula, near the town of Lixouri. Today, these coats of arms do not symbolize wealth, but are only a witness of a previous time.
Our family has been involved in tourism for many years, starting with the taverna of our grandfather Spyros, which has been the center of all important events in the city for over 40 years.

Everything was simply perfect. The apartment was very clean and cosy, close to the main street of Argostoli. One of the best, or even the best place we’ve ever stayed for our holidays in Greece. The owners are simply wonderful, they were so kind and generous that made us feel just like home, like we’ve known each other for decades. We strongly recommend this studio, they are the best!

Our room was very well equipped, everything you could possibly need was there with added complimentary extras that were appreciated. Our host was friendly, kind and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation is by the bus stop to beaches and the airport and is within easy walking distance of restaurants and bars. Room was very clean and comfortable.
