region of Halkidiki is famous for the monastic Christian peninsula
Mount Athos,which is nearby. We can organise trips there and to
women’s monasteries. There are religious festivals throughout
the year (panagyria) which we visit.
Life in a Greek mountain village can remind us of the more natural
rhythms of the past, where everyone and everything had its place
in a harmonic hierarchy of seasonal activities, as Juliet du Boulay
said in her Portrait of a
Greek Mountain Village.
We would like to take you to the roots...
the church, with its customs and festivals, its beautiful services
and music, and the rich variety of crops and wildlife in the Greek
countryside. We combine this with our knowledge of Greece's rich
history and its cultural heritage. Come to participate in the
life of a Beautiful Greek village in the mountains...
