Discover the Greek island with Sylvain Garraud, a mountain guide/naturalist as well as a naturopath-herbalist. Sylvain will share all the wonders of Tinos with you. This island was Athens vegetable garden at one time; with the artichoke is its symbol, it keeps a rich, healthy and lively Mediterranean culinary tradition. Agriculture, animal husbandry and the harvest continue to be living practices despite the wind that leaves its mark on the strongest olive trees. The island radiates light reflected by its blue-grey and white marble so famous throughout Greece. Tinos is surrounded by a brilliant blue sea and an immaculate Mediterranean sky. It is bathed in serenity where those passionate about the great natural spaces, epicureans, and lovers of simple and jovial life will succumb to its charm.
