Come and explore the beautiful, unspoilt island of Evia and experience a traditional way of life long gone from most of Greece.
Evia, which is Greece’s second largest island is still relatively undiscovered and offers a variety of fascinating historical monuments and stunning scenery.
Enjoy the delicious cuisine in seaside tavernas and mountain villages and observe some of the local specialties being prepared for us to taste. Enjoy homemade products such as pastelli (sesame and honey sweet), cheeses, meat and vegetable dishes and the traditional pasta – kourkoubines. Fish too, as from ancient times Evia has been known as one of the most important fishing areas in Greece. And naturally,wine and olives!
Walk along ancient donkey paths amongst Roman ruins, medieval castles and Byzantine churches. Take a sunset cruise on a fishing boat and swim from beautiful beaches in Homer’s “wine dark Aegean Sea ”.
