Ancient cultures believed that by living in harmony with nature, people stay healthy throughout the year. A key point to this is a balanced life cycle with diet and activities, physical, psychological and spiritual, adapted to the cycles of nature, food being dependent on what happened to be growing at that time and activities in connection to the environment. As a result the immune system is kept strong to fight the pathogens, both external and internal.
Winter is the time of the apparent quiescence and stasis, yet beneath the surface is the hidden activity of gestation and germination, a prelude to the renewal of spring. Living things slow down to save energy while some animals hibernate and humans conserve energy and build strength.
Winter is the ideal season for strengthening relationships, gathering with family, being with our beloved ones, relaxing and resting. Sleeping early, taking care of our diet and adapting our activities to the slow motion of the season, ensure stronger bodies for the out ward movement of spring and summer. A short escape can also add benefit to it.
Mani being located in Southern Greece, only 3 hours from Athens represents the ideal destination for winter’s short escapes. With an average temperature of 15oC and a natural environment totally different from that in summer, welcomes the visitors to find out winter’s beauty. The hardness of the dry land is being replaced by the softness of the greenish ground and the colour of the mature seed of the olive trees. The blowing wind and the white waves that hit the rocks create a unique scenery that cannot be described by words. The warmth of the fire place together with the delicious local snacks and a glass of wine result in emotional lifting and complete relaxation.
Staying with us, we guarantee a relaxing short escape during wintertime. Choosing a room with fireplace will make you experience an additional sense of warmth.
