Spetses Goes Vintage this Spring for “A Weekend in Tweed” 

This spring the stunning island of Spetses will be filled with a retro vibe during a long weekend featuring vintage adventures, a nostalgic atmosphere, and special tweed appearances. 

From the 15th to the 17th of April 2022, Spetses island will welcome guests- from all around the country and the world- for a unique “Weekend in Tweed”. The special event, run by the Poseidonion Grand Hotel in collaboration with the Hellenic Bicycle Museum, is a celebration of classic English glamour- with participants filling the hotel and village square with their retro bicycles and vintage attire.

Paying homage to old-world charm and traditions, Spetses is the ideal destination for this unique event, as the stunning island is renowned for its aristocratic feel and cosmopolitan aura.

And with the sweet spring weather being the perfect time to enjoy such an occasion- plus the all-time classic character of the Poseidonion as a backdrop- visitors are invited to enjoy a three-day event dedicated to a whimsical journey through time- full of evocative activities and memorable moments.

Over the weekend, guests will be able to hop on a classic bicycle and enjoy a leisurely ride around the island; stop off for a charming picnic in the blossoming nature, and experience afternoon tea at the Poseidonion Grand Hotel-  all while parading in their elegant outfits and tweed attire. 

The long weekend will also include plenty of delicious delicacies and famous signature dishes from Poseidonion; plus a range of surprises including a beauty pageant highlighting the best dressed, an atmospheric party, and special awards.
