A Burn, - Oct 2019

Greek cooking and wine break

Family were absolutely lovely and couldn't do enough for you. Lots of fun - loved the Greek night, wine and olive tasting and our tour around the island which is amazing. I had a great time though to me the holiday is more a Greek adventure/experience than a cooking holiday.

the owners of Villa Spiro are very helpful , they treated us like family. The standard of accommodation is OK.Food was very good.The ceramics teacher was good and her worship among the olive groves is inspirational. The only downside is that the resort of Lagunas is rather tacky.

Really enjoyed our ceramics experience. Setting was beautiful, tutor fun and friendly. Our host family who looked after us for the whole holiday could not have made us more welcome and made sure we had a great time.

Greek cooking and wine holiday

We stayed in the villes set in an olive grove 4-5km behind Laganas town. Lovely, with all facilities. Originally we were in apartments in Laganas town, but this did not suit, and Antonio was able to relocate us. Our days were pretty action packed with cooking in Effie’s home kitchen. The meals we cooked could have been eaten with the family or packed up and taken back to our villa/apartment. Another cooking activity was in a patisserie in Zakynthos town, where we made Baklava. On our last cooking day we went up into the mountains, where we watched and helped a lovely Greek lady cook one of her own free range chickens in the traditional way over a wood fire, which we ate in the tavernas’ garden. We have to say we could not have been looked after better by Denia, Effie and Antonio, they were a joy. Nothing was too much trouble and we had such fun. It was a busy and exhilarating week and we felt very sad to leave our “new found Greek family”.

Ceramics and culture holiday

Effie, Antonio and Denia made me feel welcome from the moment I arrived. The family were so hospitable and helped us with planning our downtime as much as they did the classes. As a group we visited parts of the island we wouldn’t have otherwise seen and met some great people. The ceramics experience was first-rate, and as very much a beginner, learning a lot about ceramics in a beautiful outdoor studio (and drinking homemade lemonade!) was ideal.

We had the most wonderful vacation. Hosts, Iffy, Antony and Denia are so friendly and accommodating, there is no limit to what they will do for you. My teacher in photography, Dimitris, is very knowing and teaches in a most inspiring way.

We had a brilliant holiday with so much to do. Restful too with great fresh food, the family were lovely company and we saw huge turtles!

Ceramics and culture holiday

I had a great holiday in Zakynthos. Antonio and Effie couldn't have been more welcoming, and went out of their way to make me feel at home. Ceramics was v relaxing and the results are great. Zakynthos was all I expected - lovely Greek tavernas, beautiful sea, blue sky every day and I had time to relax as well.

Ceramics and culture holiday

I was very well taken care of by my hosts, Effie and Anthony. Sitting in the beautiful outdoor studio working with the clay, drinking homemade lemonade proved to be super relaxing. Greek dancing in Effie's cousin's picturesque Taverna was a highlight. "Opa!" means "Jump for joy", which we did!

Ceramics and culture holiday

This holiday is all about people and the lovely memories that you take home with you! The team and other guests were very nice people. In order to avoid any disappointment of expectations what is advertised should be a bit reviewed like the bathroom, which was not modern.

Ceramics and culture holiday

I was welcomed into the family in Zakynthos. I was taken to places the tourist does not usually see, I spent time with Greek people and consumed virtually every Greek dish! The ceramics experience was first rate and I came home with pottery which will always remind me of this wonderful holiday.

A Cary, , - May 2019

Greek cooking and wine holiday

I could not have asked for a better holiday - thank you! Antonio, Denia, Effie and Adriana made me feel welcome from the moment I arrived. The family was so hospitable and made every effort to make sure my schedule was exactly what I wanted! So happy I stumbled across this site!

L Wardle, Zakynthos - Apr 2019

Ceramics and culture holiday

slightly short changed that there was not more ceramics - my stay coincided with Easter so the teacher was busy. My host was likewise busy when I arrived so I was on my own for the first few days. If I’d known I’d have hired a car and explored the island. Which I did for the last 3 days - wonderful

Reply from Supplier: Thank you for your feedback and we're delighted to hear how much you enjoyed the island. Sorry if you felt you were alone for the first few days - we wanted to give you some space as you were writing your assignment before the programme started. There must have been a misunderstanding about the extra ceramic lessons as more lessons would have been available. However, we're glad you got to experience the Easter ceremony and family dinners with us instead and your tour of the island by car. We had a really fun group that week and glad you were part of it. - Denia and family

Greek cooking and wine holiday

Antonio and Effie could not have been more attentive than they were. I had a fabulous time with them and would recommend this holiday to anyone who wants to really find out more about the way Greeks eat, cook and live other than just visit the tourist sites. PS you get to do all the best tourist sites as an added bonus!

The holiday could not have been improved upon!

Both Dimitri the photography tutor and Antonio and his family were very helpful and friendly and made it a very enjoyable experience. I would thoroughly recommend it and a great way to see the island.

Greek cooking and wine holiday

A unique experience on this Culinary Tour program operated by a family team. Very personal and friendly, they couldn't have done more to make me feel welcome and taken care of. The traditional Greek cooking was a once in a lifetime experience and the Island offers some of the best swimming beaches.

Greek cooking and wine holiday

I had a wonderful time with the family and thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with them, discovering the island and cooking up some spectacular meals. Could not have been happier.
