Greek culinary delicacies on board: some good addresses on your way from the airport to our base

Sailing is also about enjoying life, and when sailing in Greece, one of the pleasures is …great food. We propose a few good addresses – all of them right on your way from the airport to our base in Lavrio. Really worth a 5 min stop.

  • Airport mini-market at the arrivals level: a bit of everything, top quality and reasonable prices (not like the one at the departures level)
  • Kostarelos cheese factory: greek cheese and more, at the right (starboard!) side of Markopoulou Avenue, after 5min drive from the airport right on your way to Lavrio.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Papagiannakos Winery: Beautiful installations in the middle of the vineyards and top wines. Contact them to arrange a wine tasting tour.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Aoton Winery. A new and promising winery by the young enologist Sotiris Ginis. Check out his wines, some already received a prestigious Decanter Award. Contact him to deliver onboard directly.
*We have absolutely no affiliation with the above businesses.
