Day 4 : A Taste of Sifnos

We will start our tour early in the morning and depart from the hotel to reach the monastery of Panagia Chrysopigi, a very important and revered landmark of Sifnos.
After our visit to the Monastery, we will continue to Kastro village. Kastro is located at the top of a rocky plateau with steep sided cliffs and a panoramic view over the sea and the nearby islands. Kastro was the capital of the island until 1836 and was very important throughout the history of Sifnos. We will walk around Kastro (village for pedestrians only) and possibly even visit of the Archaeological museum of Kastro.
The tour will then continue to the village of Artemonas. In this traditional village, you can see village’s old aristocratic neighborhood and admire the neoclassic mansions built over 200 years ago, painted in the traditional Cycladic patterns.
Upon finishing the exploration of Artemonas, we will visit the most important archaeological site of Sifnos; the Acropolis. Located on the top of a hill known as the “Kastro tou Ai-Dria” (St. Andrew’s Castle), it stands to this day on the way from Apollonia to Vathy. It was built around the 13th Century B.C and was finally abandoned in the 4th century B.C. A small, yet rich museum is located within the site, full of the different artifacts that were unearthed in recent excavations. The Acropolis is one of the most well preserved Mycenaean fortifications in the whole of Cyclades. Next to the archaeological site, you can find the beautiful church of Agios Andreas and its breathtaking panoramic view of the island and the Aegean Sea.
After this unique experience, we have free time for swimming or lunch in either Vathy or Platys Gialos. Finally, as our expedition across the majestic island scenery is done, we return back to our hotel

 

Day 5 : Cooking lesson in traditional farm

The Farmland is located in the center of Sifnos Island, between Apollonia and Kato Petali regions.

With freshly products picked by you, we will create healthy dishes that taste fantastic! Upon returning to the farmhouse we will start preparing lunch or dinner: two salad dishes, two appetizers and two main courses. A choice of local dry white or sweet sun-dried red wine will accompany your meal. For dessert, we have a selection of fruits, depending on the season, such as watermelon, melon, pear, apricots and damsons, all of them unique as they are grown from our own organic seeds.
The duration of the cooking lessons, including the time of your meal, is between 2 – 5 hours. Lessons can be arranged for either lunch or dinner. At the end of the lesson we sit around the farmhouse kitchen table to enjoy all the delicacies that we have prepared together.
During your entire visit, a friendly and accommodating English speaking assistant (for French or Russian speaking assistants, arrangements can be made upon request) will be eager to answer any questions you may have.
