So what do you get when you cross a beautiful Greek island with a drag king competition, the amazing McChicks, heaps of sunshine, shimmering clear blue waters and almost a thousand women? The International Eressos Women's Festival of course.
This year Diva Destinations took a group of 65 women to the International Eressos Women's Festival on the Greek island of Lesvos. Here we stayed for what turned out to be one of the best 2 week lesbian holiday we've ever experienced. After a little blurry eyed from our 6.40am departure from Gatwick we arrived at Neilson's Beach Resort in Skala Eressos mid-afternoon on Saturday 9th September. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the fun, laughter and frivolity never stopped. We stay at Neilson's for some good reasons ... 1) You are staying in a fantastic 4* resort with it's own private beach, pool and bars to go with both 2) Free watersports, mountain biking, tennis, fitness classes and kayaking 3) Club board accommodation which includes an extensive buffet breakfast and lunch daily with 4 evening meals each week. Then you only have a short walk into the village for all the Festival events. Like our Facebook page or our Lesvos Holiday page DivaDestinations
So read on to find out what to expect when you join us on our hosted group lesbian holiday to the Lesvos Women's Festival. Well definitely a whole lot of fun, merriment, hilarity and entertainment and lasting friendships. Diva Destinations run their own group activities during the day including kayak safaris, bike rides, group paddle boarding, walks into the village and countryside, social tennis, pool and beach games and walking the dogs at the local rescue centre. BUT don't worry if you're not sporty; one of our reps is always on the beach during the day ready for a chat and swim. A good number of our women spent many a happy hour chilling and-a-chatting with a book or drink in hand hanging out with our beach rep. The great thing is, not only do you have our daily activities but you also have the festival workshops that take place each day. And if you like swimming there is the Women's swim to the rock each morning from one of the beach bars. It's a lovely social meeting where you can swim (or watch) followed by a drink and chat.
What to expect from the International Eressos Women's Festival .... We had the best time at the Lesvos Women's Festival with its many varied and fun entertainment both day and night. From the daytime workshops and art exhibitions to the fantastic McChicks who played to a packed audience at their evening concert then wooed the women for a more intimate lunch time performance. There are film screenings with this year's hit being Wonder Woman, quiz nights and karaoke evenings. Then we have the famous Festival Fashion shows Part I & II and the fabulous play Deep In The Heart of Me and of course Diva Destinations own Drag Kings of Eressos competition. One thing for sure is you will never get bored!
We can't say enough about the holiday. So the only thing left to do is join us next year and experience this amazing trip for yourself. e:firstname.lastname@example.org
