Porto Carras is a luxury hotel complex built over an area of 1763 hectares and having 16,630 hectares of gardens. It is located 2 km from Neos Marmaras

In 1960 the land became possession of Giannis Karras, a Greek shipping tycoon who found shelter on the same place after a fierce storm several years earlier. In 1973 Karras started the construction of the complex which resulted in revolution of tourism in this part of Greece. For three years an olive grove with 45 000 olive trees and vineyard of 47,500 hectares were created. On a hill above the complex a wine cellar was built with capacity to produce 2500 tons of wine. After the death of Giannis Karras in 1989, his successors sold the complex but the new owners retained the original name in respect of its founder.
