Programme of the week:
Day 1: Arrival on Saturday, welcome by your hosts - Dinner at Live Bio
Day 2: A Greek language course with Eleni to learn some basics of the language and know how to write your name in Greek letters! Afternoon free to enjoy the beach – Dinner free.
Day 3: Guided visit of Poros Island, free lunch and weaving workshop with Eleni. Eleni, who is a weaving master, has been teaching how to weave using various fabrics and techniques for more than 15 years. Eleni also teaches spinning (making yarn from fleece), felt making (another way to make fabric out of wool), doll making (especially in a form of a holiday souvenir, using pieces you find during your travels). Recently she added eco-weaving (using plastic bags and all sorts of recycled material) and weaving in nature) – Dinner free
Day 4: Sailing trip around Poros Island: Periklis is an experienced skipper. A sailing trip is a must to experience this country with 6000 islands!
Day 5: Greek cooking class at the Odyssey Institute with the experienced Chef Katerina. Katerina’s parents used to own a restaurant and involved her in cooking from a very young age. She also travels the world and takes up cooking seminars to constantly learn new recipes and bring ideas from her travels. Once all the cooking is done (about 3-4 hours), you will sit down at the dinner table with your fellow chefs and try all the goodies that you have cooked. There are about 5 dishes plus desert and of course wine to accompany the food!
Day 6: Methana Peninsula excursion. Methana is a peninsula that is barely joint with the mainland with a narrow corridor of land. It is far from the tourist beaten track, a truly magical spot. Located a 30 min drive from Live-Bio, this spectacular area is known for its 3 000 year old (still active in theory) volcano and about 40 volcanic springs located around the peninsula. The sulphide rich waters around the town of Methana are very good for your body so if you are up for it, bring your swimsuit and take a dive in. For the active ones, we suggest a hike on top of the volcano where you can admire breath-taking views of the Aegean sea and the surrounding islands. After the hike we will visit our friend Theodoris at his café built from the volcanic stones for a cup of coffee (or something stronger), followed by lunch in a tiny fishing village – Vathi, where we will taste fresh fish and seafood in one of the local tavernas. Dinner free
Day 7: Olive oil Soap making Workshop. Have you tried making your own soap? Are you keen on creating a perfect bar of soap made 100% from natural ingredients? Magda Serafeimidou from Olive Lab, is incredibly talented and will gladly share her knowledge and passion with you. In this workshop the main ingredient you will be using is extra virgin organic olive oil – abundant produce of Greece rich in nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins your body needs. The modern cold method of soap making will ensure that all the nutrients important for your skin and hair remain in the final product. All the beneficial ingredients as well as natural glycerine will be generated during the saponification process. You will also learn how to “flavour” your soap with pure essential oils, herbs and spices. Free afternoon and Dinner at Live-Bio.

" Égoïstement Je suis presque tentée de ne pas recommander cet endroit tellement je souhaiterais le garder le secret! Un paradis sur terre ! Il serait cela dit intéressant de préciser que cela n’est pas idéal pour les personnes à mobilité réduites sans voiture. "
