HOLIDAYS in Greece
Maria Shi-Fo and I have known Vivi and Eraj for many years through NYSY Studios, Avocado restaurant, etc. But we've never visited Zen Rocks Mani. So, we went yesterday. And what an experience it was! The place is really LOVELY. It incorporates the quality of people Vivi and Eraj are and that of everything they're doing. So, we decided to attend one of this summer's events. We are truly looking forward to it!
I had the pleasure of co-leading a Zen&Yoga retreat with my friend Vivi in early June. My words cannot convey what a haven of peace, love and generosity Zen Rocks is. Vivi and Eraj, great congratulations and thank you very much!
Staying at Zen Rocks you will experience luxurious, well-designed accommodation that in itself gives you peace of mind. The food was prepared with love and consisted of a creative mix of Greek and Indian dishes. But above all it is the beauty of nature and Vivi's authentic care that will touch your heart.
Η αισθητική των κατοικιών, και γενικότερα του συγκροτήματος, είναι εξαιρετική, και δένει απόλυτα αρμονικά με την ομορφιά και τη ηρεμία του τοπίου. Τα πάντα χαρακτηρίζονται από άρτια ποιότητα και λιτή πολυτέλεια. Η εξυπηρέτηση ήταν άψογη, πολύ φιλική και διακριτική. Μέσα στη σιωπή της φύσης, με τη θέα της θάλασσας και τη γαλήνη των ελαιόδεντρων, βρήκαμε και πάλι την επαφή με τη δική μας εσωτερική σιωπή, που τόσο έχουμε ανάγκη! Αν και πολύ κοντά στις κλασσικές εστίες κοσμικής ζωής της περιοχής (Καλαμάτα, Καρδαμύλη), η γαλήνη του "Zen Rocks" μας έδωσε τη δυνατότητα να ανακαλύψουμε εκ νέου την κυριολεκτική σημασία της έννοιας "Αναψυχή". Θα το ξαναεπισκεφθούμε οπωσδήποτε!
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.
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”.
