Are you looking for an island with the fragrance of the old days? An ideal place for a nearby escape of a male gender, an island where together we can discover its traditional beauty since it never really cared to become "in fashion" like cosmopolitan Hydra and Spetses. An island with its own well-hidden charm like an old lace and like the greek movies we loved, the unforgettable magical summers which we have left behind since we were young. So, join us to lead you to enchanting Poros!
Ancient Kalavria or Poros as it is called today has a population of about 4.000 people and is situated opposite Galatas, a village on the east coast of the Peloponnese with its well known lemon tree woods. It is an ideal destination for those interested in short escapes, searching for a peaceful place yet not boring, verdant and picturesque.
Approaching it by boat, we come face to face with wonderful neoclassical buildings which ornament the hill on which the town of Poros lays amphitheatrically. Each side is covered with pine trees and its tiny bays as well as its being close to Athens, make it an island which takes you back to the old years of innocence.
On board the cruiser of SEAYACHT we will discover all the hidden secrets of Poros, marvel at its lacy bays, swim in clear waters, cruise along the coasts of the Peloponnese and for those interested, fishing and diving is also an option.
Gaze the Old Clock (donated by Ioannis Papadopoulos in 1927), walk along the cobbled streets discovering quaint small squares, marvel at the peaceful scenery, visit the historical monastery of Kalavria and the old aqueduct, the archaeological museum, Villa Galini and the old ruins of the temple of Poseidon. Thanks to its unspoilt charm and its neoclassical style which remains the same although the commercial demands of our times ask for a change, Poros was the place chosen to film favorite movies with Thanassis Vegos as well as scenes from "Alice in the Navy" etc.
