eumelia is featured in the 2018-2019 Health Issue of Greece Is Magazine. The article dives into the world of Greek agritourism and showcases eumelia and our activities. The article by Paulina Bjork Kapsalis transports the readers to our farm:

“Situated in an ancient olive grove near the village of Gouves, in the Peloponnese, Frangiskos Karelas’ organic farm produces mainly olive oil and wine. In the autumn, guests are welcome to help with the harvest. You can also take part in an olive oil tasting or learn how to make olive oil soap. But there is more to be discovered here as well. Knowing the risks of monocultures, Karelas planted grape vines and almond, pine and cypress trees in the olive grove. During your stay, you‘ll learn all about why this is the best way to approach organic farming. You can also help feed the animals (Greek black pigs, goats, sheep and poultry), plant vegetables, and do much more. When you need a break from farm work, you can take a cooking class or request a tasting of natural Greek wines led by sommelier Marilena Karadima. The five guesthouses……. feature modern interior design, yet they blend in perfectly to their surroundings. Decorated with wood and natural stucco, they’re named for the trees and plants that grow in the area.” full article
