Gerakas Monemvasia 12 days Program

 A journey into colours, the interplay of light and water, and time, in one of the most beautiful, but as yet undiscovered (thankfully!) corners of Greece, the Southeast corner of Laconia, specifically in the intriguing fiord of Gerakas, arguably the most well hidden natural port of the Mediterranean, which simultaneously constitutes a rare water nature reserve of great beauty and immense ecological interest.
In recent years, Gerakas has indeed enjoyed a newfound popularity, becoming quite cosmopolitan as one of the most frequently visited destinations by both small and large yachts. However, those kind of short visits have neither spoiled its natural charisma, nor the beauty of its mainland. The latter is comprised by the lagoon where the sea path ends up and through the secret entrance of the fiord, just under the ancient castle of Zaraka, extends inwards, like a river flowing towards its source.
But ‘’words often fail us’’ say those who ardently believe that brevity is the soul of wit. Neither the area at large nor the place which hosts the meetings-seminars for life enhancement and soul cleansing every year at Porto-cadena for a few selected (10-15 individuals/group), need any boastful advertising. Some images, though, through photographs taken from friends and visitors at different instances are enough to convince anyone of what we have just described above.

Diet

Breakfast will be served at the hotel premises and as far as lunch and dinner are concerned, Anima Travelling ensured the cooperation of the most famous gastronomic unit in the area, which borders Porto-Cadena and specializes in the Mediterranean Cuisine (recommended by trip advisor). All the products used are from local cultivations of biological origin, whereas the fish and the seafood are fresh and are fished from the owners of the restaurant ´´Diamantis´´ themselves.

It is worth mentioning that the land of Laconia is known since the ancient years for the variety of its herbs, the olive oil, its oranges, lemons, tomatoes and its dairy products coming from local farms.

The restaurant ´´Diamantis´´ can respond to the needs of Vegetarians, Lacto Vegetarians, Flexitarians (Pescetarians&Pollotarians), Vegans & Raw Vegans.
