Kefi” is a word that describes Greek culture well. It roughly translates as: the spirit of joy, passion, euphoria, enthusiasm, exuberance, frenzy.

Greece is well known for its history, nature and sunny climate. By staying here with a local family and attending a local Greek school, you will have the chance to experience all this. You will also have the chance to learn one of the oldest and most unique languages! The most popular choice after high school in Greece is a public university. Due to their popularity, the exams are very demanding and the standard in the schools is therefore quite high and often difficult.
Greek families are very special and caring and with them you will have the chance to taste their rich gastronomy!
