Evdilos is a small village with 600 inhabitants, although it is the main port of north Ikaria. The courses in Evdilos are intended for those who prefer a more urban environment rather than a farm on the mounts. Students have easy and fast access on foot to several bars, tavernas and cafeterias as well as the sea. Evdilos, although a small village, has all the characteristics of an urban environment. In the horseshoe of the port, one can find all the life of the village gathered in one place: From ATMs for money withdraw, post office, car rentals and pharmacy to traditional kafenia (cafeterias), tavernas, places for an ouzo, a beer or a pizza… And all these by the sea. The beach of Evdilos is not the best of the island, but it’s only 3 min on foot away, it’s clean and it is well-protected from the wind. There are also more options nearby, like the beach of Kampos, 30 min on foot.
The afternoon activities are very limited during the courses in Evdilos. One evening we are going to cook all together some traditional Ikarian dishes. A slide show about Ikaria is also included. No more afternoon – evening activities are offered. Students have all the time of the world to do their homework, enjoy picturesque Evdilos and explore the island in their own way.
A limited number of summer Greek courses are offered every year in the coastal village of Evdilos, on the island of Ikaria.
Accommodation and daily life in Evdilos
We suggest accommodation at Hotel Atheras. The hotel offers a special price for our students. Breakfast is also served with an additional cost. Accommodation in the hotel is not obligatory and students may choose other rooms for rent in the area. We strongly suggest students to prefer accommodation inside the village, as they might find inconvenience to walk every day 10 – 15 min from the nearby beaches around Evdilos to the center of the Evdilos, where the lessons are taking place. We can help you to reserve a room at hotel Atheras after your registration in our courses, or you can book it independently.
Students can find each other and integrate with locals in the bars and the cafeterias of the port, just 5 min on foot from Hotel Atheras. Students can also rent a car from the local car rentals and explore the island.
