Kakkavos Estate (pronounced Ká-ka-vos) took its name by the beautiful bird partridge which thrives in the area. We can also find the name kàkkavos mentioned by the greek poet Homer in his texts and referred as the “big cooking pot”.
The 400 acres estate is located in the area called Mesòkambos (meaning: in the middle of plain), part of the historical Sacred City of Missolonghi which is well known from Lords’ Byron poetry as also its famous sea lake, surrounded by the Ionian sea.
