I was traveling alone for the first time and decided to stay at the Odyssey based on previous reviews I read, I felt that I'd be safe comfortable staying there and that was important to me. From the moment I was picked up at the airport by Vangelis, one of the men they use for transfers I felt as though I was with family! Then when I arrived at the Odyssey and was greeted so warmly by Katerina I knew immediately that I had made the right decision!
I met wonderul people during my stay. All so friendly and welcoming to the lady from NY. The staff was helpful and friendly. They couldn't do enough for you. I didn't feel as though I was staying at a hotel, I felt like I was staying with family. It felt like I was home...but without the responsibility of making my own bed and cleaning my room!
My cooking classes were wonderful. I made (or helped to make) so many wonderful dishes that I can't wait to try at home. There was never a shortage of food or wine during my stay! Katerina is passionate about cooking, Poros, and Greece. You can see it in the way she speaks. She is very proud of what she does and where she is from. she is a wonderful teacher and mentor.
I could go on and on about how wonderful this experience was. It was life changing. I never connected with "strangers" like this before. When I left after 9 days I felt as if I had made friends and discovered new family. I cried as I said my good byes to all the wonderful people I met and especially Katerina. I can only dream that some day I'll be lucky enough to come again and visit. Maybe some day I can go back and help make olive oil from their olive grove!
I highly recommend the Odyssey to anyone who wants to stay some place that feels not like a hotel, but like a home. Warm and inviting with friends that you haven't met yet!
