Ancient ruins

The wealth of nearby archaeological sites includes Epidaurus with its Unesco-protected amphitheatre and Sanctuary of Asklepios – the most renowned healing centre of the ancient world. The legendary citadel of Mycenae, the ancient capital of Nafplion, the village of Didyma, the Temple of Hera close to Argos, the Byzantine monastery of St Dimitrios and many other sites also rest in close proximity to the resort.

Cruising the Aegean

Explore the islands, pristine beaches and ancient towns along this famous stretch of coastline in privacy and consummate luxury aboard one of Amanzoe’s highspeed watercraft. Half- and full-day charters leave from Amanzoe’s beach on Amanzoe One, a sleek Wally One Powerboat, while customised full-day charters can be arranged aboard Aquazoe, a Pershing 62, for up to 8 guests.

The car-free island Spetses is known for its sea-faring traditions, neoclassical mansions and horse-drawn carriages. Explore this quaint village and verdant pine forests by scooter, quad bike or bicycle. A little farther offshore, picturesque Hydra is also car-free and renowned for its vibrant dining scene and nightlife.

Morning market and cooking class

Sample the region’s famous citrus fruits, vegetables, sweet olives and other delicacies when choosing your ingredients with Amanzoe’s chef at the local morning market. On returning to the resort, pick fresh herbs from Amanzoe’s organic gardens, then prepare a Greek feast for lunch, learning to cook famous local dishes of your choice from recipes passed down through generations. Your meal can be paired with delicious local wines selected with Amanzoe’s expert sommelier.

The art of beekeeping

A specially curated outing to the Bairaktaris family apiary nearby reveals both age-old and more modern methods of beekeeping. The farm supplies all of Amanzoe’s honey, and offers a detailed tasting, including the farm’s renowned clove and thyme honeys. They also make a range of natural propolis moisturisers infused with local herbs.

Savour a farmhouse breakfast

Close to Amanzoe, a traditional farmhouse rests in a picturesque valley, surrounded by orchards, groves and fields tilled as they have been for centuries. Children can collect eggs and feed the farm animals, while the adults learn more about farm life. Then sit down at the old wooden table on the sunlit veranda to enjoy an authentic Greek farmhouse breakfast with the farmer and his family.
