When was the last time we felt fresh, happy, and alive, just like we did when we were children? This retreat in the heavenly healing embrace of nature in Mani has one single purpose: to refresh, recharge, and restore the spirit of health, energy, happiness, and creativity in ourselves. Vivi Letsou and her team of experienced yoga teachers and massage therapists will be your expert, compassionate, and joyful guides on this ideal vacation retreat focused on YOU!

Retreat location

This area of southern Peloponnese known as ‘The Mani’ is a very special place. Its location on the edges of southern Europe, its tempestuous history and its natural beauty all combine to give the visitor an exceptional experience.

The drive from Kalamata down into Mani is stunning and something you will never forget. The isolated aspect of this beautiful area, combined with the independent nature of its inhabitants meant that some traditions grew separately from the rest of Peloponnese and Greece so that a distinct society made its mark on the landscape. To this day the architecture of the area is famed for the tower houses and fortified family residences from the period of the Ottoman occupation of Greece.

The Retreat is located about 30 minutes south of the city of Kalamata, in a quiet olive grove amidst a stunning nature spread of olive groves and rocky terrain. The closest village to us is Kallianeika. Kalamata is about a 2-2.5 hour drive from Athens on the Southern tip of the Peloponnese. Kalamata’s location marks the beginning of the incredible Mani, a peninsula stemmed by the magnificent Taygetos Mountain range, which also features some of the most picturesque seaside small towns, variegated beaches, Byzantine churches, medieval towers, and traditional stone-housed mountain villages.

Nearby, you can easily access amazing coastal beaches just 8 minutes away and a variety of cultural, sea, or mountain activities that will make this one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences of your life. Restaurants, cafes, bars are available in the nearby area.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

The nearest airport is Kalamata International Airport (KLX).

Driving directions from Athens

  • Drive on the new freeway from Athens to Kalamata, and be prepared to stop frequently for tolls. Expect to pay around 15 EUR each way. It may take you 2-2.5 hours to reach Kalamata.
  • Stay on the freeway and exit Kalamata heading towards Areopolis and Kitries.
  • After the freeway ends, you will pass Lidl, and a café called Cosi on the right, and then the road forks and you see a road sign.
  • At this point, you have the option of heading up towards the mountain towards Areopolis and Kardamyli, or taking a right towards the sea and Kitries. You can reach the hotel either way. Directions through the coastal road are given here, as it may be easier to find the location this way.
  • Take a right towards Kitries and drive down the coast for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Right as you approach Kitries, the road goes uphill. There is a big retaining wall right in front of you, causing you to almost stop. You see a road sign for Doloi.
  • Make a sharp left up the mountain towards Doloi.
  • Drive for 5 minutes until you reach the village of Kallianeika.
  • When you reach Kallianeika, stop in front of the church and set your odometer to 0.
  • Drive for one kilometer, and you will come to switch back turn where you will see a fence with big cacti and a huge rock. You are getting close.
  • Immediately afterward, you see a second switchback turn.
  • At this point, leave the asphalt road and enter a smaller cement farm road.
  • Drive 300 meters on cement, and then another 300 meters of dirt road.
  • At this point, you will see the electrical posts and a cement road up on your left. This is a private driveway to Zen Rocks.
  • Go left on our cement road. It is a sharp incline.
  • Come up on first gear and full throttle. Small cars will do fine if you know how to drive fearlessly.
  • Welcome to Zen Rocks. May you relax and enjoy.
