Lykos Winery was founded in 1991 by Apostolos Lykos and is located in 2KM form the GCH Villa. The idea of its creation came as a sequence of the family`s restaurant which produced its own wine to serve its customers. The restaurant is still running next to the Winery and both coexist for wine tourists. Lykos family is second generation winemakers, who give respect to winemaking tradition while complimenting these traditions with the utilization of cutting edge technology.
The winery tour of the underground cellars with oak barrels and the tasting room is a unique experience combined with the tasteful suggestions of the homonymous family`s restaurant. The winery is open for visitors all year around and welcomes private oenotourists and organized groups. At the premises there are available for buying all the winery`s wines as well as traditional local products. Also, wine seminars, business presentations and other events can be supported. Its location, so close to Athens and its offerings makes it a wine destination on its own.
A visit to our winery in Malakonta, which overlooks the main road of wines of Evia is the ideal trip to the countryside which can be combined with its archaeological sites and diamond tastes!
A selection of Lykos wines are available in our help your self bar.
Chia Charge continue to support us for the third consecutive year by supplying their delicious flapjack energy bars keeping you well fuelled whilst out on the rides.
Unsurprisingly Chia Charge energy products embrace the power of Chia seeds into tasty energy products designed to fuel your activities.
The founder of Chia Charge, Tim Taylor, believes being active is a positive lifestyle choice and you should be rewarded with good stuff to eat that makes you smile, not grimace.
His duel passion for food and exercise are well suited. Last year he completed 12 marathons and although he expects the demands of Chia Charge will mean he is able to enter fewer events in total, he is hoping to go for longer. It is rumoured he has also been seen out on a bike!
He believes that food – in particular sports nutrition – should be more than just fuel to keep the body going. Having tried a few sport nutrition and energy products he came to the conclusion that whoever makes these things was at the back of the queue when taste buds were handed out! Sitting down to a delicious meal is easy enough, so why shouldn’t sports food be delicious too?
With Tim’s Chef and NPD food technology background he was well positioned to do something about it. He started developing formulations in his kitchen at home to create food that tastes delicious and helps you perform, the result of which was Chia Charge. We at GCH look forward to you trying the Chia Charge products whilst visiting us

Loopie was set up by Paul, a keen cyclist and professional Graphic Designer…
“It all started when I was searching for an interesting way to capture the story of my effort following a particularly tough ride. I wondered if there was a way to use GPS data to do this. Loopie was born and the journey began.
Every Loopie I have made from that point tells a different and unique story. Now you can start telling your own stories with the Loopie Creator. I hope you have as much fun creating art from your rides as I do. Chapeau!”
A fantastic and unique way to commemorate your Greek Cycle Holiday with a stylish work of art, keep you eyes peeled for exclusive discounts and formats for all GCH guests. http://www.loopieroute.com/
