As they say, “In like a lion, out like a lamb,” Vassara is not exception!  March is much more than the beginning of Spring in the village. This is one of the biggest months of the year in Greece, bringing along Greek Independence Day on March 25th as well as the Annunciation holiday, and the start of Holy Lent.

Vassareans gather to look for the first signs of new life.  Wildflowers bud on the hills of Parnonas, bringing sweet-smelling scents of the region’s first flowers.  I’m often told by locals there is no other time in Greece quite as beautiful as Spring, although most of us miss it, saving our travels for the sensational summer sun.

It seems as if each season in this enchanting oasis brings beauty.  Happy Spring! Happy Greek Independence Day! Zito Ellas!
