Welcome to Mount Athos Area!
Finishing the prime summer season, Athos region
changes colours and shapes. The Mediterranean blue which joins 300 whole kilometers of coastline with the sky light, gives place to the golden red
of the forests and the thousands shades of autumn
, when three colourful
mountain volumes, protected by the European Net Natura 2000
, offer to guests tourism forms and options of great interest:
on 8 mapped historical walking routes,
between dreamy countryside,
to 8 wineries and 30 traditional tsipouro cauldrons,
to restaurants, which are inspired by the cuisine of the mountainous regions and create warm and tasty dishes, using only the local organic products.
The region still is getting prepared to wear its Christmas
costume, and the mythical “Paramithohora”
is opening its celebration’s gates for a whole month: from the beginning of December
until its end! The residents of 16 settlements of the”third leg” will celebrate the local rituals, the choir will sing the traditional carols
, the Christmas outdoor markets
will fill the air with scent of roasted sausage and spices
, the lights will turn on and the dance of Christmas will begin!
Mount Athos Area
knows to live and welcomes guests every season of the year. 35 five lodgings on the mountainous area
and the coastal zone
as well remain open during the winter and welcome to joy all who decide to share with us the celebration, obtaining experiences and memories from those who smell intensely the aroma of our pure childhood
