If you have already visited Ancient Olympia and are searching an alternative, this is an ideal tour for you. This half-day program will bring you to the heart of the countryside by visiting a most imposing nunnery, that of Kremasti. The etymology of the name is "hanging" as is seems to be hanging off the rock! Become initiated into the tastes of the local products as you visit the Agricultural Association and try all the different varieties of Greek olives and virgin olive oil. Then follow "a wine road" to get off the beaten track and visit a local winery. The owners will be more than pleased to guide you through the facilities. The aromatherapy of the cellars will prepare your taste buds for the wine tasting at the end of this tour. Wrap up your tour with a dip in the crystal clear waters of Agios Andreas beach.

 

  • Become amazed by the Monastery of Kremasti as it stands majestically at an imposing height. It really seems to be hanging off the rock. The view you will have from here is amazing.
  • Chat with the nuns who are always willing to share their stories with their visitors.
  • Find the key to a long life with Mediterranean products; tingle your taste buds with the best varieties of olive oil, olives and herbs. All in one, by visiting the Agricultural Association.
  • We will follow "a wine road" to get off the beaten track and visit a local winery.
  • Take the time to stroll around in the cellars where the red wine is matured, one of the varieties that you will also have the opportunity to taste.
  • Accompany your drink with a variety of appetizers specially made for you and refreshments for the children.
  • Finally, after a 30-minute drive, spend some time at Agios. Andreas beach; very popular among the locals.
  • This is nice for families with young children too as the rocks in front of the beach form the boundaries of a natural pool. Enjoy a dip into the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea or just unwind under the Greek sun.
  • At the sea front bar the sea breeze will accompany you while you enjoy your ouzo with Greek mezedes "a small bite of whatever".
