In order to have a vision, it helps to have a captain at the helm, and Temes S.A had just that. Messinia, in the Peloponnese region of Greece, was the home of shipping magnate Captain Vassilis Constantakopoulos who sought to invest in protecting the land he loved. Although he passed away in 2011, his aim to create luxury, sustainable tourism in Messinia lives on through this collection of high end multi-use resorts. One of Greece’s most significant sustainable tourism developments in recent times, Temes contributes vast amounts to environmental research, has one of the most extensive photovoltaic facilities in Greece and has created the largest olive tree plantation in Europe. And employing 700 people locally, Messinia is in ship shape.
