Sleeping quarters at Kavsokalivia – 2/5/2007
After a quiet night and a good sleep we woke up at 8. Before we reached the kitchen all visitors had already left and we were to late for breakfast. Hmmpf, ok, we brought our own healthy mussli-bars and ate some of them.
Before we left for Lavra we took some time to shoot pictures in the surroundings of the guesthouse and the church.

    Hello again,
    this time I tried to call at Kavsokalyvia for reservations and the monk told me in a poor English that he will not be there in the date when I plan to arrive. It will be another monk… so he couldn’t help me… Do you have any experiences with the guestmasters from Kavsokalyvia? I suspect that there are 2 or more guestmasters that perform their duties on a weekly timetable or so and you really need to have enough luck to call when the right one is on his duty…
    If you have any information on this, please let me know…

    Many thanks!

    Luck is very important thing, every time you would like to make a reservation on Athos. Hope that the right person picks up the phone: the best thing is to try as much as possible, I do not have other recommendations, sorry!

    I was told I only could make a reservation within 40 days of my (planned) arrival.
