Culture, History & Arts
The island of Evia (or Euboea) is less than an hour away from Athens, the Greek capital of almost 5 million people. Besides that, your Retreat is 2,5 hours drive from the Archeological Museum of Delphi & 5 hours from Ancient Olympia. Plus, the famous Ancient Greek Theatre of Epidaurus is 3,5 hours drive.
The most prominent culture, history & art related sites such as the Megaron Mousikis (Concert Hall), the Stavros Niarxos Foundation Cultural Centre, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Acropolis Museum as well as the Parthenon Archeological Site are a matter of time from our residencies.
All make up for great day-trips in order to get a better understanding of Greek history & culture while staying in our Retreats (have a deeper look in the map below).
Relaxation & Leisure
Evia is an island but not that popular. Yet, it is the second biggest after Crete. Unlike Mykonos, Santorini or Corfu, we don’t have a great influx of tourists -especially during high season- but the infrastructure & facilities do exist for the traveller who wants to explore the island. Most important, an abundance of beaches which are barely visited, are just next door.
Evia has the privilege to have two coastlines filled with all-year-round safe-to-swim beaches in both sides; the bay of Evoikos (Evoikos Kolpos) to the west & the Aegean Sea to the east. Most of them are maximum 1-2 hours drive from both residencies. Only thing you will need is transportation which is included at your stay.
Nature & Recreation
Due to its size and morphology, North & South Evia combine a wide range of mountain and sea activities and make up for a perfect destination for hiking and mountain biking through dense forests, crossing impressive canyons and mountaineering to imposing peaks, swimming and snorkeling in crystal seas.
Evia is ideal for nature lovers, trekking enthusiasts, sea admirers and history seekers.
