Classic Odyssey has been a dream of mine since 1991. I fell in love with Poros Island on a visit with my dear friend, Pamela Rogers. We met on our first trip to Greece, she as a painter, I as a cook, on an art trip in the early 80's. Since then, I have hosted groups, family and friends, or travelled solo, each time coming home with a deeper love for this beautiful country and her people. My children and I lived on Poros for the summer when they were just seven and five. Pamela now resides on Poros and continues to paint, write and save animals.
My trips are different. You are immersed in the culture, welcomed as family and never want to leave. I have had guests return for the third and fourth time. What sets us apart from other “group trips” is the relaxed schedule. Poros is your home base and you are each taken care of according to your needs. If you want time alone to explore, it is yours.
After all of these years of hosting a variety of people, I now have a great holiday that suits everyone’s needs. During these two weeks you will have the opportunity to hop to another island, Hydra, for the day, take a renowned Greek cooking workshop, enjoy a Greek BBQ on an organic olive farm, take a day trip to Naufplio, the first capital of Greece, and visit one of the famous wineries of the Nemea region, a top 100 vineyard, for a fabulous wine tasting.
You will walk with a guide on the historical Poros walk and learn the deep history of this island. We will also travel to breathtaking Epidavros for the classical bit. One of our guests favourites during the two weeks is a fishing trip with Captain Tassos. In the morning we will fish, and then, while Tassos is cleaning the catch, we will swim and snorkel in a secluded cove before our lovely lunch is served onboard. Some have booked a second trip! We will dance the night away at Greek Night. Maybe one day you will choose to sail or explore the island by moped.
The last day you'll spend in Athens. You'll be leaving Poros in the morning and arrive a bit after noon at your hotel in Athens. You can spend the afternoon and evening on yourselves exploring the city center, or optionally book a (guided) visit both the Acropolis and the spectacular Acropolis Museum and have dinner in Plaka.
Odyssey Suites, your home-away-from-home is ranked tops in all of Greece. Katerina, Rik, Dora and I, along with the amazing staff, will do our best to make sure that all of your needs are met. Your meals are fresh and organic, your rooms traditional and cozy and it is all directly across from one of the many beaches of Poros. If you choose to venture, there are many spectacular tavernas, cafes and shops in Poros Town.
You will have plenty of free time to make your very own memories!
