Syvota, Threspotia – the ‘island’ on the mainland.

The Epirus region in Northern Greece is considered as one of the most beautiful regions in all Greece and the village of Syvota and its surroundings are truly the jewels in the area.

The pretty harbour still maintains its classical fishing village character while further on up and down the coast, rocky coves and sandy beaches invite you into the Ionian’s turquoise waters. With spectacular views across 2 small offshore islands and then over to the larger islands of Corfu and Paxos, and with a backdrop of densely wooded mountainsides, this unspoiled area is just perfect for a wonderful holiday.

Here you’ll also be invited to join in our guided bike rides along the rugged coastline, and, as in Vassiliki, we’ve organised a great walk along to one of the nearby beaches, where, after a chance to go swimming we’ll take you by boat around the inshore islands, stopping on the way at deserted beaches for more swimming, lazing in the sun and snorkelling.

In the middle of the week you’ll also have the chance to explore a little further afield.  Leaving after breakfast we’ll drive 45 minutes or so to the famous Acheron gorge and springs, where myth has it, Achilles was bathed by his mother and gained his superhero powers.

There’s time here to walk through the forest a short way to the springs, and then, for those not undaunted by the water temperature (a cool 9 degrees even in the height of summer) to walk in the middle of the river right up into the spectacular gorge.  Sometimes the water is only ankle deep; sometimes you’ll be wading waist deep.  (wetsuit trousers supplied if wanted!)

Out of the gorge you’ll also get a chance to try something new – rafting down the river. Led by an experienced guide you’ll ride downstream on a rigid inflatable boat for about 15 minutes before returning upstream in our minibus. For anyone who wants even more of this really ‘back to nature’ experience you can then choose to ride the river again on a kayak - this time without an instructor.

Back at the Mega Ammos beach, we’ve a selection of Paddle boards that, once we’ve shown you the basics, you’ll be able to take out whenever you like – improving your fitness levels as well as giving you a somewhat different perspective on beach life.

2 minutes with Amy Chambers

16 maart 2017

Amy joined us in 2011 to run the fitness sessions at our Vassiliki centre and we haven’t looked back since, she is now manager and resident fitness guru of our activity-packed centre in Vassiliki. Growing up in Cyprus, it was there that her love of watersports and triathlons began. During university, she competed in the British Triathlon Championships and then went on to teach kitesurfing, windsurfing, and diving in various locations around the world. Throughout this time, her love of all things fitness-orientated has continued to grow – she is a Level 3 Personal Trainer, spinning and circuits instructor and holds various swimming and aqua qualifications. Amy has a wonderfully fun and realistic approach to fitness and loves teaching at all levels. But don’t worry, she won’t be enrolling anyone in a boot camp, after all, our philosophy of doing as little or as much as you like always applies!
