The Art of Philoxenia
philoxenia (from /phílos, “friend” and /xenos, “a stranger”) – properly, warmth (friendliness) shown to strangers; (figuratively) the readiness to share hospitality (generosity) by entertaining in one’s home, etc.
From Zeus to Homer, from Old Testament ethics to Plato’s Laws, Philoxenia is at its’ roots, a code of values dating back to antiquity.
Philoxenia, translated in english to mean Hospitality is an ancient tradition of the culture and the country. Hospitality emerges from a blend of culture, religion and mythology. Ancient Greeks were renowned for their travelers, both near and far. Thus when common travelers journeyed these lands, Greeks treated strangers with such hospitality because they never knew if the strangers might have been gods disguised as humans passing on.
Yet, what is incredibly interesting is that concept even exceeds animosity between individuals and overpowers fear. Giorgos Tsiros states in an article of Greece Is: “If tourism is the major driving force of the Greek economy, then philoxenia is its fuel.”
If anything can quiet challenging relations, it’s hospitality — but not just any hospitality — the Greek form of philoxenia. This is what we aspire to, for your experience with us!
