The best way to discover the culinary side of Poros

An hour and a half by boat from Athens, in the Saronic Gulf, lies the island of Poros. The two smaller islands, Sferia and Kalavria, make up Poros paradise, home to Dutch Rik and his Greek wife Katerina. Katerina herself was born and raised on Poros and knows the island like the back of her hand. Together they run a hotel, bistro and glamping. On top of that, they organize various activities on and around the island to suit all kinds of desires. 

Katerina’s favorite thing to do is cooking typical Greek meals. What she loves even more is sharing this love with other people. For this reason, Katerina started organizing cooking courses in her beautiful kitchen. Something for you? Then this day trip to Poros is the perfect excursion!
