Onar welcomes the spring!
Every May at 9th, the memory of Saint Nicholas The Healer, is celebrated widely in Greece. In Achla beach, where the chapel of Saint Nicholas lies, there has been a small festival to honor the Saint’s memory. Onar takes part in the celebration, with mediterranean and local delicacies as well as plenty of ‘tsipouro’! Songs and laughters compose an amazing celebration, ideal to welcome the spring!
Autumn at Onar is a celebration!
August begins with the harvest of grapes and September comes along with the traditional wine pressing that becomes a festival of joy. Enjoy this rare experience and feel the wonderful feeling embracing you! The traditional winepress, happy faces and a festive celebration with a lot of music!
The October coming, the place is “boiling hot” from the large boilers preparing “Tsipouro” that will warm us for coming winter. After distilling, enjoy the warm “Tsipouro” which is usually accompanied by a great party along with the local appetizers and a good company!

In November just before we welcome winter, the picking of olives is a pure joy in the paradisiacal garden of Onar. Young or old, we all help to collect olives and taste the oil of the year with fresh bread and local dishes.
