A taste of Zagori rustic life

Your chance to be experience Zagori with the locals for a day

A great and authentic experience for families with kids of all ages! In a traditional cottage housed in a historic mansion of 1873 at Central Zagori, we will follow the pace of the hostess Lena and her family to experience the life in Zagori villages (or Zagorochoria) with the locals.

We will learn to weave at the traditional loom and to make a natural tincture to dye the wool, as locals continue to do in Zagori. Afterwards, we will learn the process of felt, with which all the members of the family will be able to create their own little cushion or decorative frame.

We will collect the day’s eggs to use them in the traditional Zagori pie. We will knead the day’s bread and we will enjoy our meal in the yard with the farm’s produce! 

In Zagori, life is simple and slow paced and Lena is the best person to unveil this life to you and your family! Don’t miss this authentic experience with the locals while in Zagori with kids.
