Freedomly designing a special ride with no compromises! Using our cycling friendly vehicles and relying on our guide’s experience, we design an exceptional ride, or series of rides, where you explore the very best Peloponnese can offer. This service is based on the idea of using our transportation capacity to set start and the finish points of your ride at places other than the villa’s site, adjusting the overall mileage and elevation according to your comfort levels, while our guides will make sure to share information on everything that matters during your ride.
Nemea is undoubtedly one of the most prominent wine areas of Greece, producing amongst others two of Greece’s flagship wines, Agiorgitiko (red) and Moschofilero (white). After the ride, we set up a complete wine tasting of some of the finest labels found in Greece. The wine-tasting can be paired with local cheese & cured meet platters or a 4 course menu with fine local recipes pairing wonderfully with the wines to taste. A marvelous way to finish the ride.
Our staff will visit the site of the villa and prepare a full and completed cycling breakfast. From cereals, greek yogurt and eggs, to the famous homemade “spanakopita” and fresh, locally produced fruits.
“Did you know that Nafplion region produces the best oranges in Greece?”
