What to Expect
We discover an authentic traditional Greek village lost among walnut, mulberry and chestnut and belted with numerous chapels. The view from the village over the Messinian Bay and the city of Kalamata is breathtaking offering also cool air even on the hottest summer days. Outside the village on the old threshing floors we stop for rest and a picnic with tastes from local traditional delicacies and fruits. We continue acsending to the top of the mountain, leaving behind us the last terraces with orchards and pastures. The path goes up smoothly and the first firs make their appearance. We are now on the top in a dense fir forest watching the summits of central Taygetos. Here there is absolute tranquility; we hear only the rustle of leaves.
