After a long day of driving (and museums and sites) we were glad to check in to our sea view room at Glyfa Beach Hotel. Staff were friendly and efficient. The small balcony gave us a bit of a sea view. It is a lovely, well appointed, and updated hotel with large rooms and good… Continue reading Glyfa Beach Hotel and the Seaside Fish Taverna
What an absolutely beautiful spot! This was also a new stop for us this trip to Greece. And it was perfect… from the lovely rooms, to the friendly staff, to the fabulous food…and to top it off a beautiful beach for swimming and relaxing with the most fantastic sunsets! Could not have asked for more…and… Continue reading Aggelos Hotel
After a 43 hour journey we arrived back home from Greece early October... with oh so many things to do to catch up. Trying to finish a renovation and addition to our home as well as get ready for four months in Belize was a little dauting at best. But, we managed to get everything… Continue reading Whirlwind travel to home base! And back to travel again!
This winery was highly recommended by our host at Lakonia Bay Apartments. So, we had to make the trip back up the winding road to the newly refurbished and recently reopened (in a new location) to the Monemvasia Winery. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monemvasia What an incredible set up they have. I was awe inspired by the size and… Continue reading Monemvasia Winery

Beautiful scenery and fantastic roads to drive with the… Continue reading Lakonia Bay Apartments
As this is a road trip…as well as many of our other trips to Greece, we love to travel the back roads, take mountain roads less travelled, and drive along the sea side beach roads. This road to Lakonia Bay was spectacular in its beauty! Winding, twisty, cliffside roads that make your blood run wild… Continue reading Road to Lakonia Bay
What can I say … one of our favorite wineries in Greece! As usual we tasted some nice wines and then bought them! Adamanthea (the nymph in Greek mythology who hid Zeus from his father to save him from being killed) is still there hosting tastings and she was so kind to have pictures taken… Continue reading Bairaktaris Winery – Return to Nemea – its always wine o’clock!

An easy distance from Athens and a beautiful, relaxing small community, Xiropigado is one of our favorite places to be in Greece! The Sunset Hotel and Restaurant is our 'feels like home' place here and we stay here every time we are in Greece! This lovely and quiet family hotel has beautiful sea front rooms,… Continue reading Sunset Beach Hotel -Xiropigado
Our wine server, Olga, made our day! She was smart, polite, Covid- conscious and gave us a fabulous wine tasting. This vineyard is one of the premier wineries on the island of Evia (very possibly Greece). Located high on the top of a fabulous hill it boasts views to be remembered! But, the view is… Continue reading Vriniotis Winery – Evia
