Fly & Drive: Find Joy in Meaningful Activities

Sun, sea, natural herbs: the Greek recipe to relieve stress.

Wellness tourism, as well as “silent tourism”, is a subset of tourism with its distinct elements. It features experiences such as sleep retreats, where you can enjoy short-day activities based on sleep, or even silent walking trails, which involve minimal verbal interaction and give you the opportunity to combine relaxation and experience.  Your eyes are closed. You are calm, relaxed, your senses have awakened, and you let yourself be cared for with natural herbs and products made from natural materials. You have been reborn. Your skin glows. Signs of fatigue have decreased. Here time becomes an ally, not an enemy and with each passing moment you feel more and more vibrant, young, happy and alive. Your mind is at peace.

The location

Monemvasia, known to the Franks as ‘Malvasia’, is a historic town in the eastern Peloponnese, in the province of Epidaurus Limiras, in the prefecture of Laconia. It is best known for its medieval fortress, on the homonymous ‘Rock of Monemvasia’, which is a small island connected by a bridge to the current beach of the settlement.

The surviving buildings and structures of the castle include defensive structures of the outer wall and several small Byzantine churches.

The Kinsterna Hotel is located in the village of Agios Stefanos, 7 km southwest of Monemvasia in the southern Peloponnese and is built on the edge of the “Ibrahim Bay” estate.

Finding joy in meaningful activities

The tour of the mansion offers the visitor the opportunity to observe the architectural details of the construction, to walk along the paths between the gardens enjoying the vibrant colors and aromas of the plants (more than 250 species), to visit the old olive grove, the wood-fired oven and our antique shop.
