The Phaidon Project promotes a different way of enjoying a Greek holiday through a unique travel experience, set on Montofoli Wine Estate, a classified archaeological site in the ancient town of Karystos.
Evia is par excellence a true island apart. A less known tourist destination that combines endless easy-to-reach sandy beaches and an impressive history of earlier civilizations. In addition to the natural and physical beauty of the land, there is a plethora of upscale activities available for your most discerning guests.
Montofoli Wine Estate is situated midway between the port and the spectacular Venetian fortress of Castello Rosso above and provides a graceful balance between past and present.
The historical Estate has been restored and is now a vineyard. The historical buildings have become unique lodgings. Each villa has its own charming and distinct character and combines real comfort with a sense of luxury. The verandas can be used as quiet spaces for relaxation. All outside spaces enjoy splendid views of both mountain and sea.
Phaidon Project aims to blend its unique atmosphere with the pursuit of deeper truths embedded in its history and architecture. It is offered to small exclusive groups and visitors – of a minimum of 6 people – who would like to to gain a deeper knowledge of the Greek culture and history.
Learn how to cook and taste Mediterranean delicacies and how to pair them with local wines; paint your own work of art; detox with mountain tea and local herbs and attend lectures and discussions on subjects ranging from the influence of ‘‘Wine in art’’ to the surprising, ‘‘Everyday use of common Greek words in the English language’’.
Here is a chance to truly experience the original Greece and Greek history.
