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.
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.
The wealth of nearby archaeological sites includes Epidaurus with its Unesco-protected amphitheatre and the 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.
There is as much to explore beneath the waves as on the shores of the Peloponnese. The Aegean’s warm, crystal-clear water promises excellent visibility and Amanzoe’s private dive charters ensure a world-class scuba experience. Whether you’re keen to gain your Open Water certification or are a Dive Master looking to explore wrecks and caves, Amanzoe caters to all levels by offering personalised dive itineraries and a range of courses.
