HOLIDAYS in Greece

Zen Rocks Meditation Garden


by Julia Scharfenberger on Zen Rocks Mani Retreat

  The place is very magical, the view is awesome, you feel very close to nature and it is super calm and an amazing place to meditate and do yoga.
  I loved that we did yoga & meditation at different places (down in the shade, with view on the sea and the zen circle as well as on the yoga deck) as well as that we practised different styles of yoga.
  The new yoga deck is a very nice & special place to do yoga & watch the sunset - really stunning!
  You were wonderful hosts, always so friendly, warm welcoming, doing the best to meet everyone's prefereneces & expectations, guided us, super flexible.
  A huge thank you that you organized visiting the olive press, the museum, the gallery and so on and that everyone made time for us.
  I loved the secret taverna's and spots you took us.
  The rooms are very very nice and of a very high qualiuty, too. There is love in every detail and it is organic, bio, clean, the nets to keep the mosquitos out are super! Great, big shower, everything very clean, nice sinks.
  The food was very delicious and one can taste the fresh and local ingredients.
  I liked that people joined us and it felt like a huge family/friends getting together.
  A special thank to Kay, she was amazing and everyone liked her a lot, thank you that she came earlier to practice yoga with us.
  I liked the costum of reading the 5 contemplations and being thoughtful about the prepared meals.
  I enjoyed getting to know the authentic life, meeting people and seeing how real life is.
  I love that you offer different yoga retreats and have teachers from all over the world over to inspire people.

Every attention to detail has been met. Beautiful, panoramic ocean views nestled among the ocean and ancient olive groves in the mountains. A wonderful place to make home, for a respite, rest, and relaxation. Eating healthy, delicious, vegetarian foods, having the support of the staff and the lead /owner Vivi Letsou. Who has practiced and taught Yoga and mediation for decades. She will make certain you are taken care of and supported. The Mediterranean Sea is so special to swim in and relax in the sun. a fifteen minute drive. Be sure to order the local drink Cappuccino Freddo to cool you off.

Zen Rocks is about 5 minutes away from the villages of Kallianeika, Doloi and Stavropigion.
The nearest beaches are Kitries, about 6-8 minutes away, and Kardamili about 20 minutes South.
A further drive down brings you to other beautiful beaches, both rocky and sandy,
and to the scenic seaside towns of Stoupa and St. Nicholas.
Some of the most memorable destinations and sightseeings
are the Diros Caves of Stalactites and Stalagmites,
the ancient ruins of Messene
and the house of the celebrated British writer Patrick Leigh Fermor, author of the book “Mani”.
