Intrepid Sightseeing

  • We welcome you to join us for a meal in our home in Koromila, a town next to Kastoria in Northern Greece. We are a Greek/German family, Sultana and Martin Alexander, with two young children, Martin Anastasis and Smilla Sunshine. We also live with the children’s Greek grandparents. Sultana is an archaeologist and Martin is a cook, and he is happy to let you in on all the secrets of our family menu! We love vegetarian dishes with local produce, fresh fish, wild mushrooms, and good local wines, and we enjoy our tea with fine local herbs from our mountains and garden. We look forward to welcoming you into our home!
