First class. The mixture of culture and Greek cuisine proved to be exactly the kind of vacation I was looking for. I cannot praise our guide, Bill enough. His innate ability to relate the ancient stories of each site we visited, and marry them to the historic relics we were viewing, made for a compelling and memorable trip. Read full review

The most memorable part of our vacation overall was our time spent with Bill. He is a wonderful host and his knowledge of ancient history and Greek culture is outstanding. We quickly felt like old friends rather than guests. Read full review

Every experience we had on this magical vacation was fun and memorable. The most adventurous activity was hiking into a gorge and then entering a stream where we walked through the water into a cavernous area with stalactites and a surprise at the end! Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We have made substantial donations to Archelon, the Sea Turtle protection society of Greece which operates along Kyparissia bay and we include a conservation visit in our itinerary of activities when appropriate. We employ local professional skippers for our boat trips and support all local tourist conservationist enterprises.

Energy efficiency: We heat our properties by using wood-burning stoves to burn our own wood which has been naturally pruned each year from our olive trees. We heat our water with solar panels.

Water use and conservation: We encourage all guests to save water through the use of appropriate signage. We use waterbutts and onsite underground reservoirs around the property to conserve natural rain-water for irrigation of the land and for any other use.

We grow most of our own food and obtain the rest from local suppliers. We run every trip from a standpoint of environmental conservation, highlighting issues of pollution, litter or any action contrary to the preservation of the ancient artefacts or cultural importance attached to the sites which we visit.

Recycling: We provide separate recycling bins for our guests at Lavender Lodge and we dispose of these appropriately, recycling as much paper, plastic cardboard and glass as we can.

People

We are committed to our policy of employing local skills wherever possible. We aim to work in accordance with local practices, customs and expectations regarding olive farming and sustainable living. We always use local labour for all jobs undertaken either in the olive grove or in Lavender Lodge.

We support our local business by buying exclusively from them for all of our farming requirements. We also make a point of introducing our guests to many of our local producers, shopkeepers and taverna-owners. We use the services of our local dry-cleaner for all of our laundry requirements.

We employ local olive pickers and farm maintenance workers when necessary and use the local press for our harvests.

Before each archaeological trip all guests are given information covering the history (both social and political) of the place to be visited in the form of a talk followed by a guided tour and they are provided with access to up to date guide book material, which our guests often buy from local shops.
