Family Gathering -Greece
a moveable feast
Tinos, Paros, Naxos
16 to 26 of July, 2023
We’ve been coming to the Cyclades since the beginning of our voyage, but this year will be special. We’ll move slowly through three magical islands, Tinos, Paros and Naxos, enlisting the help of old friends, artists and chefs to guide us. We’ll explore the tastes and secrets that have made this place so special for our family. And we’ll enter new waters too, guided to the hidden magic by friends we admire. We have space for three families to join us.
On this year’s return to the Cyclades we’re giving out a little more sail. We’ll begin on the island of Tinos, famous among pilgrims who come to visit the miraculous icon. Our family makes its own pilgrimage here each year, to lose ourselves in the wild hills and along the rocky shores. We’ll reconnect with some old friends, artists, farmers and foodies who are bringing new life to this beloved island.
From Tinos we’ll island hop to Paros to visit a friend and artist working with natural materials from the island. Our third and final stop will be Naxos, the largest island in the archipelago. Here we’ll explore the ruins of the ancient temple of Demeter and work on our own creations with a marble master.
We will host an experience and a special meal on each island. The rest of the time will be free for families to wander as they like, or to join us as we explore or return to old favourites.
DATES: 16 to 26 of July
COST: 2500€ for one adult and one child. 600€ for each additional adult, 500€ for each additional child. There is no charge for children under four years.
WHAT’S INCLUDED: One meal and one experience on each of the three islands. We will be there as your guide through the ten days in Greece. This is us curating a path for you, calling on friends and partners from our years of visits, sharing the experience, together, like family. We will share our Field Guide to the Cyclades, with practical information and inspiration to help you get the most out of your stay. We’ll also act as your concierge, helping answer questions as you prepare for your journey, giving advice on best flight paths, ferry bookings and airport transfers. Plenty of time to connect and explore together, and loosely scheduled to allow flexibility and time with family.
WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED: LODGING We will share our collection of preferred properties and provide feedback on other selections you may find, but booking and managing lodging is your responsibility. TRANSPORTATION A car is a must on these islands. We have relationships with the local rental agencies and can help you get your cars for best price possible. We can also offer guidance to help make sense of the rather complicated Greek ferry system. MEALS except where noted. WINE AND ALCOHOL we will provide wine at our hosted meals, but otherwise alcohol will be available for purchase.
WHO IS THIS FOR: This Gathering is for curious families who would like to explore Greece in a unique and connected way. Our families are open-hearted and thoughtful travelers who appreciate quality over quantity.
INCLUSIVITY: A “Family” can take many shapes and configurations and ALL are welcome at our Gatherings, all orientations, races, ages and configurations. The value of our Gatherings comes in large part from the incredible people who join us. We are constantly inspired by the families we are lucky enough to visit these destinations alongside.
