OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our love for local folk traditions and gastronomic culture has prompted us to create a comprehensive experience for those who want to get in touch with our Messinian cultural heritage. For us, food is more than just a biological need; it is a unique ritual and our vision is to share this experience with our guests.

As you enter the paved courtyard you will have the pleasure of tasting dried figs, pasteli and loukoumi with a mastic liqueur shot that will activate your taste buds. We then offer you a variety of local dishes to enjoy as you watch Panagiotis, our talented chef, prepare your meal in our specially designed open kitchen. Follow the path through our vegetable garden where you will find some of our raw ingredients and then enjoy a guided tour of our village’s famous Byzantine chapel from the 16th century.  The Transfiguration of Our Saviour church is renowned in the area due to its age and connection to the Greek War of Independence. The weapons used in the initial days of the conflict with the Turks were blessed here by a priest before being used in the fight for independence.

Continuing you will explore our traditional Messinian mansion decorated with works of folk art. At this point you will have the time to browse through the specially designed areas of our folklore museum that aim to take you back in time. Our tour continues on the top floor of the mansion where you will be able to buy traditional products from local producers and taste some of the wines that compliment the dishes on the menu of the day.

All this audiovisual and taste experience is the preamble of your culinary journey that ends with the dinner of 7 separate Messinian flavors. We guarantee that this trip will activate all your senses, will initiate you in the secrets of folk wisdom with unique tastes and images that will remain unforgettable!
