Thesprotia

Igoumenitsa: is Greece's third passenger port after Pireaus and Patra, with almost hourly ferries to Corfu, several daily to Italy, and more sporadic connections to the Ionian islands of Pαxi, Kefalloniα and Ithaki. 

Levelled during the last war and rebuilt in a sprawling, functional style, it's a place most travelers aim to pass through, but since the majority of ferries leave early in the morning, an overnight stay is often necessary.

Sivota is a mountainous region of the north west. This is one of the loveliest areas of Greece – green, scenic and traditional with little organized tourism. Sivota enjoys a setting of remarkable beauty. All around are hills blanketed by pine, cypress and olive, the trees in many places reaching the water’s edge. The twisting coastline is indented with rocky coves, sandy bays, and stretches of almost white coarse-sand fine shingle beach such as Mega Ammos a mile outside the village. Just off-shore are three wooded islets with beaches of their own, great fun to explore by boat, maybe taking a picnic.

The hire of a small motorboat is recommended and is the only way to reach not only the islets in the bay but also nearby hidden beaches. The village itself has plenty of Greek charm. Only in August is Sivota very busy, largely with holidaying Italians and Greeks themselves; and during this short period the village, harbor and beaches bustle with life. The harbor is pretty as a picture, with an array of cafιs and restaurants (some quite smart), a handful of shops, and often a flotilla or two moored at the quay. A ten minute walk brings you to the greater part of the village, with church, stores and more taverns. Over the headland is the town beach – sand/shingle with canoes and pedaloes usually available for rent – and a little further are two white shingle bays.

Mykonos Island


Ιt is the cosmopolitan center of the Cyclades Complex. Its reputation has spread during the last years due to its unique landscape, its archaelogical sites, its cosmopolitan environment and its magnificent beaches.

White-washed, cube-shaped houses are scattered all over the island, narrow streets in the town, chapels and picturesque tavernas hide among art galleries and stores selling jewellery, souvenirs etc.

Trends that sweep through the international scene are born in the intense nightlife of this modern resort.

An island of tempting and tempestuous reputation such as Mykonos, with high tourism and a rather superficial lifestyle, inevitably has both fans and critics.

But even the most unsuspecting visitor immediately realizes that Mykonos is not only a crazy “bon-viveur”, but also an attractive, picturesque island with white Chora aside the crystal-clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea.

Direct international charter flights and regular domestic flights from Athens serve frequently, during summer, the airport of Mykonos.

Because it is so famous, Mykonos gets really overcrowded during high season but for those who enjoy the crowd, great fun and all night long entertainment, Mykonos is the ideal place for holidays.

Have a wonderful time...
