One-Week on the Peloponnese in Greece (donated by Carolyn Chalmers & Eric Janus and Steve & Meg Swanson)
(retails at $1,100)
“In the heart of Classical Greece, and a few kilometers from wonderful Aegean Beaches are two new homes with modern appliances and ambiance. Each house has 3 bedrooms and 2 ½ bathrooms, with a fully equipped kitchen and living room, as well as a shared patio and stone grill.”
This package includes a week stay – dates to be determined – in one of these beautiful houses in Lefkakia, “a non-tourist agricultural village of orange and olive groves on the Aroglian plain with lovely views of the surrounding hills and insights into ancient and modern Greek village life.”
In Lefkakia in the summer, there are “warm beaches every place you turn. Barrel wine and fresh fish, olives, and feta are abundant.”
From the Greek Village House, it is no more than ½ hour by car to the ancient ruins of Epidaurus, Myceane, Tiryns and Assini.
“A stay in these homes is a combination of village life, cultural opportunities, outdoor experiences, and at-home comfort.”
