There is only one day to the start of the European Club Cup. The venue is in perfect condition and players have started arriving. The sunny weather and the nice facilities give all the conditions needed for a professional top level competition. 23 players over 2700 and 60 players over 2600 will start competing in the top European team chess event of the year.
The interior closely resembles a medieval palace.
A heavy wooden door gives way to the state-of-the-art playing hall.
In front of the playing hall the hotel offers a spacious lobby with wireless internet connection and a comfortable lobby bar.
Private pools and lusury suites are located next to Athos Palace at the Imperial Hotel Theophano.
Pallini Beach will host the Women tournament. Its close proximity of the beach, villas and beach restaurants and tavernas makes it attractive to the visitors of the entire hotel complex.
The floor of Pallini Beach’s lobby is covered with Greece’s finest marble.
Pallini has a great pool complex.
The calm beach rivals the cosmopolitan pool.
At the beach there are many typical Greek tavernas.
Here the tournament participants can enjoy fresh fish dishes two meters from the calm sea.
