What has the Aegean Sea got to do with lush lowlands? They blend together perfectly in this tour. Plains of olive trees, reeds and citrus fruits next to the Aegean Sea form part of the natural landscapes of this tour. Several stops, interesting insights about the archeology and agriculture interest of the area, and then the infinite blue!
The beauty of Melanes valley will put you in the right mood before discovering the two wonders of ancient sculpture lying imposingly across the landscape, namely the famous Kouros statues.
The Eggares citrus valley is next, about which the great Greek writer Nikos Kazantzakis, nominated for a Nobel prize no less than nine times, wrote: “If paradise were on earth, it would be here”.
The hospitality you’ll witness at the Eggares Olive Press museum was probably the same kind of hospitality that had prompted him to utter these words. Let the guides in this modest museum treat you the same way through one of their full tours.
Our friend Giannis will welcome you next to his farm that produces its very own cheese, vegetables, wine and possibly raki, the strong local spirit. What he lacks in his ability to speak English, he makes up for it with his smile and manner.
Resist the temptation to eat or drink to much as a gourmet treat will be waiting at Ammitis beach, only a 10-minute ride away. Hammocks to enjoy the sceneary, a local lunch and the infinite blue lie just ahead.
A relaxing ride throughout the citrus plain of Eggares and the village of Galini, along with a visit to the sea, will complete the tour
