The most lovable holiday resort
The wasteland Mani starting from the mountain Taygetos and extending down up to the last edge of the middle foot in south Peloponnese, Greece, is located between the Messinian and Lakonian bays.
Pure, wild, primitive but beautiful, fascinating and attractive, built on stones and drought olive trees, captured in its tremendously inspirational and metaphysical landscape, where extinct animals and creatures live in harmony, preserved in the wild forests of the mountains Taygetos and Parnonas.
Thousands of small and big stone-built villages and towns, long stone- towers touching the sky, unconquest fortresses, legendary castles, mythical caves and pirates’ shelters, ruins reviving the past and the intact history. Built in stone -history with its harsh customs, unwritten laws and ethics in wild.
Thousands of small picturesque chapels, dating back to the 14th century and the Byzantine era with precious valued wall paintings and mosaic. Phantoms of the past and living constructions of the present.
Where history becomes a myth and myth becomes a legend, where tradition is highly respected and honored and where the Greek hospitalily still exists.
A lovable holiday resort, yet unexplored and natural!
