Description

Sailing trip
After a warm welcome and safety brief, we depart from Kalamata port towards the magical, ragged and cliffy coasts of Mani and Kitries fishing village. We will swim at a secluded beach only accessible by boat, explore a traditional and historical fishing village with stories from the Pirates and Greek Revolution era and we will swim in a sea cave where a seal and wild pigeons are nesting. We may even encounter on our way dolphins, turtles or seals. We won't miss any opportunity for swimming and snorkelling in the crystalline azure waters.

Farming and outdoor activities
Our farm is located close to the city of Kalamata, on the top of a hill with an amazing view of Kalamata’s fertile plain. After about 1 km relaxed hiking through the famous Kalamata’s olive groves, we arrive at the farm. Coffee, herbal tea and homemade sweets are offered to all guests on arrival.
