The Laconian countryside is waiting to reveal its secrets to unsuspecting visitors and well-informed nature lovers alike. With its unbeatably beautiful landscapes, untamed natural beauty, and rich palette of colors,Monemvasia,is an excellent choice of for guests to explore and partake in a series of activities, expertly organized to provide an ideal way to immerse oneself in nature, tradition and gastronomy.
We also suggest exploring through hiking trails the beautiful nature of Monemvasia.
The visitor has the choice of routes that introduce him to small traditional villages as well as the seaside. In all of them the visitor will meet small masterpieces of nature, as well as monuments of cultural heritage such as Byzantine churches and traditional watermills.
A fascinating variable route for the hiker, starting from the picturesque village of Talanta with its mountain gorge known as The Bali Gorge and ends by the sea. While crossing the small canyon, we find ruins of the 11 watermills that once existed in the area and primarily the 3rd one, which was restored in 2006.
This is a 2-hour journey, which leads to the sea, and more specifically to the beach of Harahia, one of the most famous beaches of Monemvasia and suitable for an enjoyable swim.
At the very start of our journey, after 500 m of cobbled streets, we will visit the water mill of Talanta (short tour), where you will be welcomed by Barba Yiannis, the last miller of the mill, who for 60 years has been grinding the wheat he cultivates in his land, in the same original way. Barba Yianni will entertain you as he entrusts you with all the secrets of his work and his many stories , while observing him grind the wheat.
Then we will descend the gorge, an easy route between ancient plane trees and running water, which becomes a bit difficult while crossing the reeds and shrubs of the local flora. On the beach of Harahia, where the route ends, a much-needed break time awaits you while being served fresh orange juice. After a short rest, we will be transferred to the Historic Mansion of Liotrivi for a tour of the Olive Oil Museum with the presentation of baking delicious traditional bread, which will later be served at dinner prepared with the freshest local traditional ingredients.
