Costa Navarino, the prime sustainable destination in the Mediterranean is looking ahead to an exciting season, beginning on February 19th 2017.
Set on a background with a historical legacy of 4,500 years, an idyllic, unspoilt seaside landscape, mild-temperatures and a range of family and authentic experiences; Costa Navarino is now more accessible with the British Airway’s and Easy Jet’s weekly direct flights to Kalamata, from April till October offering an ‘ideal destination for year-round vacation!’
The season commences with the inaugural Messinia Pro-Am taking place from the 21st -24th of February. The golf tournament will bring together amateur and professional players from around the world, with the action taking centre stage on Costa Navarino’s two signature designed golf courses: The Dunes Course and The Bay Course, recently awarded by the IAGTO Awards as 2017 European Golf Resort of the Year.
Renowned as a family destination, Costa Navarino launches its new programs for the adventurous youth. The “Young Archeologists in Action” and the “Young Gardeners” programs highlight a family’s stay. Children get the chance to dig and discover the historical secrets and antiquities; plant their own seeds and bring their own seasonal fruits and vegetables from the farm to the table.
Authentic cultural experiences, ranging from a philosophical walk led by a local Professor under a century-old olive tree to an olive oil tasting session and a cooking class with two local ladies, will take you in a journey back in time creating priceless memories with your family and friends.
While on the go, sports-lovers can explore the beautiful coastline with a luxury yacht, cycle amongst the olive groves or even dive beneath the Mediterranean waves. And before your departure, a must-do transforming experience is a specialty treatment at Anazoe Spa that will heal your inner core according to the Ancient Greek traditions and practices truly aiming to rejuvenate the mind, body and soul, utilising the region’s exclusive natural and revitalising ingredients.
Moving along with the culinary enthusiasts wishing to experience the all-encompassing health benefits of the Mediterranean diet, there’s no place more suited than Costa Navarino. The destination hosts 21 food venues to choose from, mainly using local products, time-honored techniques and recipes passed down through the generations. Central to the gastronomical experience is the use of the Navarino Icons’ Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), recently named after the EVOO of the Year 2016 in the World Ranking for Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The Extra Virgin olive oil amongst other products can be purchased in Marks and Spencer stores in the UK.
