 Overnight Stay: The Odyssey Centre 
Dinner included

After your arrival in Athens, you will be met at the Athens International Airport and brought by car to Galatas for a short ferry ride to the beautiful island of Poros. Once on Poros, you will be transferred to our lodging. (Please plan to arrive at Athens International by 6:30 pm for transfer.) 

We'll settle into our accommodations at The Odyssey Centre- bright and comfortable apartments with ensuite bathrooms. Each is equipped with air-conditioning, safe, TV, and their own kitchen. The apartments are located just steps from where our cooking classes will take place.

Our host and instructor, Katerina Sakelliou, will welcome us to our home for the next week. Katerina is a professional chef and is the owner of the Odyssey Centre. She is a native of Poros, is passionate about cooking, and is interested and knowledgeable in the historical roots of traditional Greek cooking. She specializes in both traditional and modern Greek cooking, and her skills have become very sought after; when she is not giving lessons in Poros, she also provides lessons in Greek cooking and Greek language throughout other parts of Europe.

We'll have the afternoon free to explore Askeli, a small community surrounding our lodging with coffee bars, restaurants, and small shops.  Or, you can take a stroll, relax by the pool, or enjoy an invigorating swim in the clear blue sea.  In the evening, we'll be Katerina's guests at a welcome dinner at the Odyssey Centre Bistro and be introduced to some of the foods we'll be learning learn to cook during our stay.
