A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE MYTH THAT INSPIRED US
Alkyon, the daughter of Aiolos, used to live with her husband Kyikas, the king of Thessaly, enjoying the love that kept them together. They were so overwhelmed by this love that dared to compare themselves to a divine couple of Zeus and Hera. Their blasphemy made Zeus so angry that decided to choke Kyikas. The grief of Alkyon was so deep that Zeus transformed her into a sandpiper. However, even if all birds were laying their eggs during spring she was doomed to give birth on the rocks during winter, witnessing her own eggs get drifted away by the big wild waves. Once again, Gods felt her pain and gave her as a gift two sunny weeks during January to lay her eggs. The landscape but also the care for the place and the visitors is what inspired us. In this light, we invite you to pass from the myth to reality, by observing the sandpipers that live on the rocks by the sea.
