Bike tour and lunch in Kalamata

Mama's Flavours

Hello everyone! I am Maria Monastirioti, I am Greek and I welcome you to my beautiful country, Greece! I come from Lefkada and Corfu, two of the most beautiful islands in the Ionian Sea but since 2006 I have been living with my family in Kalamata city in Messinia region in the wonderful mainland of Peloponnese.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Librarianship and Information Systems and after graduating, I had the chance to work as a librarian in several kinds of libraries where I got very much experienced. But since 2014, I have been working on Mama’s flavours, a Social Cooperative Enterprise specialized in the authentic travel experience and the Greek gastronomy tourism.

About Kalamata

Forget anything you knew about famous, touristic and crowded travel destinations in Greece:  

Kalamata is located in the southernmost point of Greece: Messinia. It is an all year round travel destination and ideal for those who seek deeper connections to communities they visit live behind-scenes experiences at non popular and off-the-beaten-path destinations and enjoy the slow, carefree rhythms of a small city.

From the first time I came to this wonderful city, in 2006, I felt that this was the place for me: I was very impressed of the beauty of this seaside city, the harmonic combination of the rich architectural and cultural legacy with the modern way of life.
