Christmas holidays in Zagora, Phlio !!

One month ago I decided to book a room at ANASA HOTEL in Zagora of Pilio.

The owner, Alekos is a good friend of mine and a radio amateur of course, SV4ZQ who is active since the early 80’s.

Wednesday afternoon I was there. It was the first time,

I was visiting his hotel and the truth is I was thrilled. It is a combination of mountain and sea.

Zagora is the biggest village of Pilio. You can find many cafeterias, restaurants with great food and shops with the local products in the two main squares of the village.

Zagora is definitely one of the places to be during Christmas holidays.

It couldn't be better!
