Surrounded by the foothills of the Taygetus mountains the centre is dotted with crumbled pyrgospita towers and carpeted in wild herbs that provide strong scented fodder for a munching army of wild tortoises - Activities include yoga and meditation in the purpose-built studio, hiking through the Taygetus foothills and swimming in pristine waters from sandy coves and sandy beaches. Special therapies include the ancient Greek practise of dream healing and holistic horseriding, first proned by Athenian general Xenophon.
Verdict? After a week of hiking, swimming,yoga, meditation, stuffing ex-restaurant owner Kerry's succulent cooking and talking to the tortoises, I was so laidback they had to force me to leave. (They can't stop me coming back tho'..heheh)
