HOLIDAYS in Greece

Zen Rocks Meditation Garden


by Mahtab Mansour on Zen Rocks Mani Retreat

Zen rocks is a magical place, the beautiful landscape with a loss of sight changes with the light, and you berce with the sweetness, I felt wrapped in incredible energy. I spent a weekend but certainly to redo and longer, and a big thank you to our guests Vivi and Eraj. 

by Nikolina Samara on Zen Rocks Mani Retreat

When i went there i told to myself that i have to take all my friends and family and go to live there. Walking through the rock gardens feels like there is no worries, no time, you can feel only the fullness being in every stone in every flower, everywhere. Zen Rocks is the most magnificent and vibrant place in Greece. A place in heaven near to Athens. Do not miss the chance to be there! Thank you Zen Rocks for this experience!

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”.
