Location description from owner

The Corinthia Region

The island of Poros is located less than 30 miles from Athens. Poros is a small lush island with fascinating scenery on the southern rim of the Saronic gulf. Its close proximity with the north eastern shores of Peloponnese creates a unique scenery like the Norwegian fiords. Poros is accessible by sea. The 1911, country retreat is situated in the mainland right opposite of Poros island and is accessible either by car (rental or taxi) directly from the airport, or by boat to Poros and then taxi boat to cross over to the mainland. At 1911, country retreat everything is walking distance, accommodation, food, skiing, swimming pool and Jacuzzi all in one! Ideal for families with kids ( very protected area).

Galatas

The magic of Poros...

The pass of Poros is magical surrounded by pine trees, olive trees and lemon trees. The beauty of this place has impressed and has been praised by prominent literary people such as the nobelist Giorgos Seferis, Kosmas Politis, Kostis Palamas, Ioulia Dragoumi and the American writer Henry Miller. Many of the houses of Poros are samples of the neoclassical architecture. One can distinguish the Deimezi building made of grey and red stone and Grivas' shop, with its wide doors and the very beautiful interior decoration. Villa Galini, among the most beautiful houses of Poros, has hosted great personalities of the Arts and Literature.

The monastery is surrounded by tall and strong walls, without any openings. There is only the central gate and the loopholes. At the rectangular precinct, there is the temple, the catholic and the family tomb of Tombazis, Apostolis and the Admiral from Hydra Miaoulis. In general, the construction is a sample of island monastery architecture. The temple is simple without many wall paintings. The precious wooden-curved icon, which was made in Kappadokia of Asia Minor in the 17th C, together with the wooden-curved iconostasis and the imposing bishop throne, are of great interest. The temple is a Basilica type with a dome and a tower - like bell - tower.



Walking towards northeastern we reach the Temple of Posidon. Few remains are felt today from the Doric Temple (6th century) made of blue limestone with 34 columns. This place was a sacred asylum for fugitives and castaways. 5 kilometers towards the North there are the ruins of the Russian Dockyard. There in 1834 warehouses and bakeries were built for the supply of the Russian fleet sailing in the Aegean. The Russians kept this property until the 1900s. since 1989, with a Ministerial decision, the Russian Dockyard has been announced as a historical monument due to its great architectural and historical interest.



The ancient Trizina is known as the homeland of Thiseas and it is one of the most interesting places in Poros. All the archeological finds from ancient Trizina are located in the archeological Museum. Continuing your way, a distance of about 3 kilometer from Trizina there is a place called "Vasiliki Tafi" (The Royal cemetery). This area has great interest because of the archaeological finds of the Mycenaean period. Walking towards northwestern we reach "Diavologefiro" which is an abrupt area in Poros but famous for its wild beauty. The visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful natural environment.

The area is full of blooming flowers and trees.

Here the river flows furiously through a deep canyon.

Another worth visiting area is the "Lemon Forest". Lemon trees grow wild in Mediterranean climates and can be easily recognized by their tangy smell of fresh. It is ideal for romantic nice long walks as the sound of the running water is wonderfully soothing. Opposite "Aliki" and more specifically at the eastern of the port there is a small island called Bourtzi with a small castle built in 1827 in order to protect the port. The visitors will have the opportunity to see the castle's thick, tall walls that still exist.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Methana is a volcanic peninsula in the north - east of Peloponnese in Saronicos Bay. Its location, beautifull beaches, hot water springs, the volcano and the mild climate make Methana an attractive destination for holidays snd wekkend trips. The hot water springs offer the visitor cure, relaxation and invigoration.



Attractions worth visiting:
The volcanic crater near Cameni Chora village, which is one of the 30 craters to be found in the peninsula. The volcano erupted around 250BC. The lake "pigeon cave" which ends in three chambers covered with water.
