Premium Transportation along with Exceptional Accommodation: Checked (aka The Greek Taxi)

Skoda Superb - The Greek Taxi

Since last September, we have launched our new transportation company, along with our Writers’ Retreats. We have put together our experience and passion for excellence and we have decided to become fully certified taxi drivers as well as purchasing a brand new Skoda Super sedan.

Indeed, COVID era has created a new reality and gave us some useful lessons the hard way. Cancellations, restrictions, regulations, protocols, bla bla bla.

This does not mean that we will give up or we will stop dreaming for the best or we even stop providing the best possible.

Jack Daniel could never be more true: “Everyday we make it, we’ll make it the best we can.” 

The Greek Taxi is our brand new sibling project and works along with our accommodation efforts. We completely take over the transportation and we take it to another level.

Airport shuttle, private guided tours, day trips around Evia, you name it and we are happy to provide it! A very brief guide with some cultural trips around Greece can be found on our handy guide as well. Needless to say that we can offer and customize any trip idea you will come up with!

Writers’ Retreats in Greece Annual Survey of Excellence & Improvement

La Bodeguita Writing Retreat Dafni

It has been almost 3 years since we created the Writer’s Retreats in Greece. In the aftermath of the recent virus shakedown, we noticed that almost everybody -except President Trump- started to rethink, reorganize and change completely the way they do things in their lives.

We belong to this category of people who see hardships and misfortunes as new opportunities and chances. Having said that, we aim to change the way we operate. We want to polish the good stuff, get rid of the clutter and start adding new exciting touches.

Honestly, we cannot think any better way to do it but listen to YOUR feedback. Hence, we are launching the first Annual Survey of Excellence and Improvement that we mean to run for a long time because sky is the limit!

Please allow 5 minutes of your super valuable time and complete the survey. It is anonymous and the results will stay between us. A huge THANK YOU in advance!


Greek Summer is a State of Mind

Mourteri Beach Evia

This is the latest spot of the Greek Tourism Organisation in order to boost the tourism and warm up the people who want to visit Greece but they are a bit sceptical or hesitant due to the global virus situation.

Even us were surprised to find out that the beach where they shot this short spot is in Evia. It is actually in Lichadonisia in North Evia and more specifically in Cavos Beach near Agios Georgios.

Regardless of the location though, it’s not the sea; it’s not the sun. It’s more than that.

Greek Summer is a State of Mind.

Being with the people you love; connecting with nature; feeling free.

That’s Greek Summer!

Check out our Summer 2020 Brochure and start planning around the Greek Summer.

Tom Hanks short interview about his Honorary Greek Citizenship

Tom Hanks, regarded as one of the nicest men in show business, was honored with a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes on Sunday the 5th of January, 2020 to mark his 30-year movie career.

Tom Hanks received the prestigious Cecil B deMille Award at the Golden Globes, recognising a lifetime career in cinema.

The Cecil B. DeMille award is given annually by Golden Globe organizers the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to an actor, director or producer who has made a lasting impact on the film industry.

Among others, he was very very briefly interviewed by a Greek journalist and see what he said about his very recent Honorary Greek Citizenship that was granted by the President of the Hellenic Republic:

In accordance with the Greek law, individuals may be granted honorary naturalisation if they have “provided exceptional services to the country or whose naturalisation serves the public interest”.

The American film star’s wife, actor and producer Rita Wilson, is of Greek descent and the couple visits every summer the Greek island of Antiparos, where they own a villa. Antiparos is one of the Cyclades islands in the middle of the Aegean Sea.
