Almond blossoms in the spring, picking hazelnuts in August, grapes and vines, grape flavours and wine, ash-coloured olive groves and blessed oil, heavy winters, wet earth, the smell of fireplace and smoked meat, the full flavours of fruits, cold water, the rustle of the river, roofs made of reeds, balconies made of pine, rough cobblestone streets, stone houses, low chapels, Cyprus tulips, French daffodils and thorny brooms, nightingales and swallow nests, all in a place closed, hard and gentle at the same time, a fallow mountain, the daily toil of the people cultivating the earth, soft conversations, modest looks, passion and tenacity, an open sky that changes with the seasons, days rolling simply and unpretentiously, nights lit by stars and oil-lamps ...
These are some of the things we truly cherish in Askas village we decided to show and share them with you at the Lyhnos (Oil-lamp). Please accept our affection and hospitality as an incitement and an opportunity to learn, palpitate and enjoy the beauty of our land and the beauty hidden inside all of us.
We welcome you and we are looking forward to seeing you again.
