Activities

Wine Tasting
Within 90 minutes of Amanzoe there are numerous vineyards open for wine tasting. All boast indigenous Greek grape varieties, offer tours of the surrounding vineyards and are known for their complex and diverse wines. The vineyards of Nemea are particularly famous. Nemea is an ancient site in the northeast of the Peloponnese, not far from the town of Nafplion. Here in Greek mythology Heracles overcame the Nemean Lion of the Goddess Hera, and the Nemean Games took place.

Fishing
Originally a small fishing community, much of Porto Heli’s history is based around this industry. Amanzoe can arrange visits to local fish tavernas and markets.

Boating
If you are in the mood for an adventure on the water, Amanzoe offers a Wally One speedboat, or Aquazoe – a Pershing 62. A number of customised charters are available, enabling guests to explore the islands, inlets and coastal towns along this famous stretch of coastline. Although there are several charming tavernas at each destination, Amanzoe can provide a picnic to be enjoyed on the water or a secluded beach. Whatever you do, don’t miss the magnificence of a Greek sunset, during which the mountains and the sea are painted a beautiful, dusky pink.

Waterskiing
Waterskiing is available in the region’s sheltered bays during the warmer months of the year.

Mountain Biking
Off-road tracks abound in the area, whether winding through ancient pine forests or hilltop olive groves offering beautiful views.

Helicopter Tours
Head out at sunrise or sunset for an airborne tour of the area, or combine this archaeological flight with your heli-journey to and from the airport. Flights will take in all the Mycenaean Citadels including Mycenae, Tyrinth and Midea, as well as Epidaurus, Halieis (the ancient sunken city in Porto Heli Bay), Akrokorinthos, the ancient stadium and Temple of Apollo at Nemea, and Isthmia Harbour.

Restaurants

The Restaurant

Fronted by an expansive outdoor terrace designed for alfresco dining, the Restaurant is an airy yet cosy venue defined by floor-to-ceiling window-doors on three sides. These maximise sea views and can be opened or closed depending on the weather. The more relaxed Living Room with its central Bar is an ideal venue for a quiet aperitif or light meal – either indoors or out – while the Pool Restaurant offers a casual spot for all-day dining. Located near the main swimming pool, the Fireplace is an outdoor lounge for enjoying a drink at sunset or a nightcap beneath the stars. The Beach Club also includes an informal restaurant.
