Since the year 2000 Sappho Travel has created, organized and funded the International Women’s Festival®, a two week celebration of women oriented activities and events, and takes place every September in the birthplace of poet Sappho, Skala Eressos on the island of Lesvos in Greece.

The International Women’s Festival program is designed to suit the diverse interest of women and always includes a range of live musical and theatrical performances, creative workshops, arts exhibitions, water and land sports, seminars, a range of healing therapies, meditation practices, local walks and several women’s parties.

The International Women’s Festival offers women a meeting place to share, exchange and benefit from the many talents, experiences and skills which a large international and local community of creative women bring into the festival, whilst at the same time simply enjoying their holiday in the village of Skala Eressos. The International Women’s Festival® contributes to the special energy that women find here and the sense of home that women feel here.
