Durante la settimana organizzeremo attività extra libere quali: la crociera intorno all’isola, corsi di immersione, gite ai villaggi e ai monasteri, esperienze dedicate al tema della nostra vacanza.
Ciascuno sarà libero di aderire a questi momenti o di orgnizzarsi il proprio tempo su una base individuale.
Una programmazione dettagliata delle proposte verrà offerta al vostro arrivo sull’isola.
Quella che segue una lista delle attrazioni turistiche (in inglese) tratta dal sito dell’hotel.
Built 1000 years ago into the face of a cliff, 300m above the sea level, Chozoviotissa Monastery provides a breathtaking view on the blue sparkling waters of the Aegean Sea. Founded in 1088 by the byzantin emperor Alexus Comnenus I, its purpose was to house an icone of Panaghia Chozoviotissa believed to have arrived on an unmanned boat from Palestine. Considered as one of the most impressive byzantine monastery in Greece, Chozoviotissa Monastery is the pride of Amorgos.
Oldest monastery on the island, Aghios Theologos dates back to the 7th century and was built on an ancient temple. The quality of its relics (ancient pieces, byzantine frescoes) and its atmosphere of complete abandonment leave the visitor speecheless.Spiagge
LEVROSOS & PSILI AMMOS
One after the other these small beaches are ones of the most beautiful and quiet beaches. Easy to access, Levrosos is a sandy beach with very clear water surrounded by lushgreen gardens. Right after Levrossos you’ll discover Psili Ammos a wilder and smaller sandy beach that can be accessed either by feet or by boat.
AGIOS PAVLOS & NIKOURIA:
In front of the beach of Agios Pavlos and its pointing finger into the sea, Nikouria is an deserted island with 3 sandy beaches uncrowded. With clear water and an attractive underwater world Nikouria and Agios Pavlos beach invite you for snorkeling.
With its deep blue hue and very clean water, Mouros is one of the most popular beach of Amorgos. Partly rocky Mouros has two underwater caves which can be reach by swimming and snorkeling.
AEGIALI VILLAGES :
Aegiali bay is surrounded by three traditional and authentic villages: Lagada, Tholaria and Potamos. All of them are accessible by feet from Aegialis and offer incredible view. Still preserved you can discover the typical greek cycladic architecture with it’s small streets and white houses but also the traditional “kafeneio”.
CHORA & THE ARCHEOLOGICAL MUSEUM :
Capital of the island, Chora is a medieval town organized around an impressive rock on top of which are the ruins of a venetian castle. With its byzantine and early christian churches, its windmills, its traditional houses, its narrow and paved streets, Chora reminds of a labyrinth and has a particular atmosphere. Located in a beautiful 17th century patrician house the archeological museum presents a collection of various finds made in the island mostly from the Bronze Age and classical period.
Fascinating and beautiful, the area of Kato Meria is located about 15 km south of Chora. Its white villages and beautiful scenery are nestled in green valleys. This part of the island is still very isolated and is wonderful for hiking. All the tiny villages there such as Vroutsi, Kamari, Arkesini and Kolofana have only a few houses, a small kafeneio and an inevitable tavern.
