Description

M a n i H o u s e
Peloponnese, Greece
Located in a gorgeous setting in the South of the Peloponnese,
this wonderful property has been finished to an incredibly high
standard and offers luxurious accommodation for up to 8
guests. The views from the pool terrace are sweeping over a
beautiful bay, a situation than induces a state of perfect
relaxation.
Comfortable and beautiful, perfect for those seeking a
luxurious and private villa as a base to explore the magic of
Mani.
Mani House is located in the Gythio Region which is an area of
the Peloponnese, rich in history and wild. The Maniots were
strong and the area on Mani was left independent in times of
invasion throughout the ages. The traditional buildings were
stone and fortresses-like since many squabbles and vendettas
amongst the families of Mani meant that people build homes to
protect themselves. Elements of this traditional style are
reflected in the design of Mani House. The stone features blend
well with a clean and modern interior where comfort has never
been neglected. The property is fine and nobel, offering a high
level of practicality and featuring all modern conveniences
including a sound system that can be diverted to many
different areas of the house. Relaxing by the pool and dining
under the stars whilst listening to ones favourite CD.
The main entrance to the property is from the pool terrace.
The door is wooden and solid and leads to a bright and
spacious central living area. Each part of this central living
space fits beautifully into a perfectly designed interior. The
colours are simple, creams and stone, with a flagged floor than
runs throughout. The shutters are painted in pale pistachio and
bright magenta has been introduced throughout the soft
furnishings and dining chairs which gives a shock of brilliance
to the colour scheme. Large French style doors lead from
every area to the pool terrace which offers a perfect place to
relax for every part of the day. Sunloungers surrounding the
pool, shaded areas to dine and a huge oak tree to give shade
whilst playing a game of chess or backgammon, or simply
enjoying the evening breeze over a good book and a glass of
wine.
The kitchen is located at the rear of the large central living
space and is fully equipped with all modern conveniences and
direct access to a patio at the back of the house which takes
on a traditional, cafe-style appearance featuring pretty, metal
chairs and tables and a BBQ and bread oven to conjure up the
flavours of Greece.
On the same level but in a separate wing are three bedrooms.
One has a double bedroom, en-suite facilities and a large
dressing area. Next there is a twin bedroom which is
accompanied by a separate bathroom and finally a second
double bedroom with en-suite facilities. All bedrooms have
direct access onto the pool terrace.
Upstairs is an office with en-suite facilities and a comfortable
double sofa bed. This room benefits from a balcony and is
decorated in the same shades as the rest of the house.
For the comfort of all guests, there is a caretaker who looks
after the property and he lives in a self-contained apartment
on the basement level. He is very discreet and tends to the
pool and garden first thing in the morning and in the evenings
leaving guests to enjoy their privacy at all other times of the
day unless he is needed. On this level, there is also inside
parking for 2-3 cars.
The Mani House is located in a large piece of land which has
been planted with colourful indigenous plants, shrubs and
trees. The stone paths, steps and walkways meander through
the property and below is an area beneath an old oak tree
which gives the most wonderful shade in the heat of the day
which draws up a cool breeze from the sea below.
The property is very well located in terms of accessing the
beach and tavernas, shops and cafes which are all a short
drive away.
The Mani House is really exceptional and is situated in a part
of Greece that is truly beautiful, unspoilt and wild.

Middle Ages Street of Monemvasia.
Monemvasia (Greek: Μονεμβασία), is a town and a
municipality in Laconia, Greece. The town is located on a small
peninsula off the east coast of the Peloponnese. The peninsula
is linked to the mainland by a short causeway 200m in length.
Its area consists mostly of a large plateau some 100 meters
above sea level, up to 300m wide and 1 km long, the site of a
powerful medieval fortress. The town walls and many
Byzantine churches remain from the medieval period. The seat
of the municipality is the town Molaoi.
The town's name derives from two Greek words, mone and
emvasia, meaning "single entrance". Its Italian form, Malvasia,
gave its name to Malmsey wine. Monemvasia's nickname is the
Gibraltar of the East or The Rock.
Geography
The town is built on the slope to the south-east of the rock,
overlooking Palaia Monemvasia bay. Many of the streets are
narrow and fit only for pedestrians. A small hamlet of about 10
houses lies to the northwest.
History
The town and fortress were founded in 583 by people seeking
refuge from the Slavic and the Avaric invasion of Greece. A
history of the invasion and occupation of the Peloponnese was
recorded in the medieval Chronicle of Monemvasia.
From the 10th century AD, the town developed into an
important trade and maritime centre. The fortress withstood
the Arab and Norman invasions in 1147; cornfields that fed up
to 30 men were tilled inside the fortress. William II of
Villehardouin took it in 1248, on honourable terms, after three
years of siege; in 1259 William was captured by the Greeks
after the battle of Pelagonia and in 1262 it was retroceded to
Michael VIII Palaiologos as part of William's ransom.
Rock of Monemvasia. Main Square.
It remained part of the Byzantine Empire until 1460, becoming
the seat of an imperial governor, a landing place for Byzantine
operations against the Franks, the main port of shipment (if
not always production) for Malmsey wine, and one of the most
dangerous lairs of corsairs in the Levant. The Emperors gave it
valuable privileges, attracting Roger de Lluria who sacked the
lower town in 1292. The town welcomed the Catalan Company
on its way eastward in 1302. In 1397 the Despot of the Morea,
Theodore I Palaiologos, deposed the local dynast of
Monemvasia, who appealed to Sultan Bayezid I and was
reinstated by Turkish troops. In 1419 the rock appears to have
come into the possession of Venice, though it soon returned to
the Despot. About 1401, the historian George Sphrantzes was
born in the town. After the fall of Constantinople in 1453
Monemvasia held out against the threats of Sultan Mehmed II
in 1458 and 1460, when it became the only remaining domain
of the Despot of the Morea, Thomas Palaiologos, claimant of
the Imperial throne. He had no forces to defend it; he offered
it to the Sultan, and finally sold it to the Pope.
By 1464 the inhabitants found the Pope's representative feeble
and the Pope unable to protect them; they admitted a Venetian
garrison. The town was fairly prosperous under Venetian rule
until the peace of 1502-3, in which it lost its farm lands, source
of its food supply and of Malmsey wine. The food had to come
by sea or from Turkish-held lands, and the cultivation of wine
languished under Turkish rule. The rock was governed by the
Venetians until the treaty of 1540, which cost the Republic
Nauplia and Monemvasia, her last two possessions on mainland
Greece. Those inhabitants who did not wish to live under
Turkish rule were given lands elsewhere. The Ottomans then
ruled the town until the brief Venetian recovery in 1690, then
again from 1715 to 1821. It was known as "Menekşe" ("Violet"
in Turkish) during Ottoman rule and was a sanjak (province)
centre in the Morea Eyalet.
The commercial importance of the town continued until the
Orlov Revolt (1770) in the Russo-Turkish War, which saw its
importance decline severely.
The town was liberated from Ottoman rule on July 23, 1821 by
Tzannetakis Grigorakis who entered the town with his private
army during the Greek War of Independence.
Modern times
In 1971, Monemvasia became linked with the rest of the
outside world through a bridge on the western side that
connects to GR-86.
In more recent history, the town has seen a resurgence in
importance with increasing numbers of tourists visiting the site
and the region. The medieval buildings have been restored,
and many of them converted to hotels.
Mystras and Sparta on Mountain Taygetos
Ancient Mystras,
(ΜΙΣΤΡΑΣ) the Byzantine city-state (59Km). Go on to the
national road towards Gythion, then, Sparta and Mystras.
Mystras occupies a steep foothill on the northern slopes of
Mt. Taygetos, 5Km NW of Sparti. The castle on the top of the
hill was founded in 1249 by the Frankish leader Wiliam
Villeharduin. The whole of Mystras is an open-air museum, a
reminder of glorious era of power and culture.
“Taygetos” or “Pentadactylos” is the highest mountain in the
Peloponnese, stretching between the river Evrotas -
Megalopolis and
Messinia. The top of a height of 2407 meters and is called
“Prophet Helias”. It presents a wide variety of flora and fauna
due to the large size
with only 25 endemic species, while a passage for migratory
birds. On the slopes of Taygetos are numerous small villages
with great local colour and operates at an altitude mountain
resort 1,600 meters.
Close to “Mystras” is “Trypi” (ΤΡΥΠΙ) village
(4Km). Trypi is a small village of almost 300 inhabitants. Its
main attraction is the steep ravine of "Kaiadas", where the
Spartans were said
to abandon their weak and deformed infants as well as the
criminals,
traitors and war prisoners. “Kaiadas” is a very scenic
gorge and may result a bit frightening for those who are aware of
this tradition.
You can find the Byzantine churches of “Agioi Theodoroi” and “Koimisi
tis Theotokou” in “Trypi” as well as the abandoned monastery of “Agios
“Ioannis Prodromos”. Have also in mind that Saint Nikon lived and taught
in the area and visit his cave.
Apart from historical attractions, “Trypi” is surrounded by beautiful
scenery. It has many streams, among which we find the springs of
“Karvasaras” and “Vasiloneri”. If you love nature, there are many hiking
trails and a climbing park in the “Laggada gorge”.
”Trypi” also has some useful facilities. There are good restaurants with
delicious local appetizers and traditional meals in moderate prices. It is
recommended to experience Greek coffee prepared on
the stove.
Oitylo Agios Nicolas
”Oitylo” (ΟΙΤΥΛΟ) is located 31Km from Kalivia and
11Km from Areopoli and it is the hub transport of the area. It is a
traditional village with long history, situated on the place of the ancient
city as mentioned by Homer. The church of Saint George and the
Monastery of Dekoulon with frescoes since the 18th century are worth a
visit.
Drive straight ahead out of Kalivia village. Follow the road without
turning left or right, till you meet with the high way. Turn left with a
direction to Gythion. At the end of this road, just in front of you the Saint
Constantine’s Orthodox Church. Turn to the left to the direction of
“Areopoli” (ΑΡΕΟΠΟΛΗ). Before entering the town turn right at he
sign to “Limeni” on your right hand side. Keep driving down, following
the road, and then up to the hill.
South of “Stoupa” (ΣΤΟΥΠΑ) on the coast is the
picturesque fishing village of “Agios Nikolaos” / «ΑΓΙΟΣ ΝΙΚΟΛΑΟΣ»
(4Km from Stoupa) still often called by its older Slavic ame, “Selinitsa”.
There are three exits off the main road to the coastal road that links
Selinitsa to and “Trahila”. Alternatively, there is a gentle coastal path
from Stoupa which takes less than an hour on foot (see the maps of both
villages, where the walk starts and finishes – you cannot get lost in
between). Life is centred on the harbour- a great place to sit, eat and
drink while watching the boats
coming and going. In the summer the road is closed to vehicles, as
taverns make use of the space to put tables and chairs right on the
water’s edge. The beach is roughly a kilometre further south; about a 10-
15 minute walk.
To reach the place, just follow the direction to “Areopoli” - “Limeni” -
“Itilo” - “Agios Nikolaos”, then Stoupa.
Elafonissos island Simos famous beach
“ELAFONISSOS” is a very small island, just 19 square km on the
southern eastern Tip of Peloponnese.
The distance from the mainland is a mere 570 meters of crystal clear
water on top of thin white sand. (22 nautical miles, form (GYTHIO”).
There is a boat sailing to the island three times a week from the port of
Gythio.
“KITHIRA” island in a distance of 35 k m from
“GYTHION”. The same boat sailing from Gythio to Elafonissos reach
the port of Kythira three times a week from the port of “Gythion”.
Cythera (Greek: Κύθηρα), also transliterated Kythera, Kythira,
Kithira. The Italian Cerigo can be used in speaking of late medieval and
early modern Cythera.) is an island in Greece, once part of the
Ionian Islands. It lies opposite the South-eastern tip of the
Peloponnese peninsula. In Ancient Greek mythology, Kythira was
considered to be the island of celestial Aphrodite, the Goddess of love,
(cf. Cyprus, the island of Astarte, the Goddess of Love).
Since the late 20th century, the Kythirean economy has largely focused
on tourism, and in the process, has become dependent this provides the
majority of the island’s income, despite the fact that Kythira is not one of
the most popular tourist destinations in Greece. The popular season
usually begins with the Greek holiday of Pentecost at the end of May,
and lasts until the middle of September. During this time, primarily
during August, the island's population will often triple due to the tourists
and natives returning for vacation. The largest villages are Potamos,
Agia Pelagia, Chora (The capital of the island), Ano livadi, Kalamos,
and Livadi

Stadion Gymnasion
Epidaurus (Greek
Επίδαυρος, Epidavros) was a small city (polis) in ancient Greece, at the
Saronic Gulf. Two modern towns bear the name Epidavros (Επίδαυρος):
Palaia Epidavros and Nea Epidavros. Since 2010 they belong to the
new municipality of Epidavros, part of the regional unit of Argolis. The
seat of the municipality is the town Asklipieio.[2]
History
Epidaurus was not independent of Argos and not included in Argolis
until the time of the Romans. With its supporting territory, it formed the
small territory called Epidauria. Reputed to be the birthplace of Apollo's
son Asclepius, the healer, Epidaurus was known for its sanctuary
situated about five miles (8 km) from the town, as well as its theater,
which is once again in use today. The cult of Asclepius at Epidaurus is
attested in the 6th century BC, when the older hill-top sanctuary of
Apollo Maleatas was no longer spacious enough.
The asclepieion at Epidaurus was the most celebrated healing center of
the Classical world, the place where ill people went in the hope of being
cured. To find out the right cure for their ailments, they spent a night in
the enkoimeteria, a big sleeping hall. In their dreams, the god himself
would advise them what they had to do to regain their health. Found in
the sanctuary, there was a guest house for 160 guestrooms. There are
also mineral springs in the vicinity which may have been used in
healing.
Asclepius, the most important healer god of antiquity, brought
prosperity to the sanctuary, which in the 4th and 3rd centuries BC
embarked on an ambitious building program for enlarging and
reconstruction of monumental buildings. Fame and prosperity continued
throughout the Hellenistic period. In 87 BC the sanctuary was looted by
the Roman general Sulla, and in 67 BC, it was plundered by pirates. In
the 2nd century AD, the sanctuary enjoyed a new upsurge under the
Romans, but in AD 395 the Goths raided the sanctuary.
Even after the introduction of Christianity and the silencing of the
oracles, the sanctuary at Epidauros was still known as late as the mid 5th
century, although as a Christian healing center.
Theatre
The prosperity brought by the Asklepieion enabled Epidaurus to
construct civic monuments too: the huge theatre that delighted Pausanias
for its symmetry and beauty, which is used once again for dramatic
performances, the ceremonial Hestiatoreion (banqueting hall), baths and
a palaestra. The theater was designed by Polykleitos the Younger in the
4th century BC. The original 34 rows were extended in Roman times by
another 21 rows. As is usual for Greek theatres (and as opposed to
Roman ones), the view on a lush landscape behind the skênê is an
integral part of the theatre itself and is not to be obscured. It seats up to
15,000 people.
The theatre is marveled for its exceptional acoustics, which permit
almost perfect intelligibility of unamplified spoken word from the
proscenium or skênê to all 15,000 spectators, regardless of their seating
(see Ref., in Greek). Famously, tour guides have their groups scattered
in the stands and show them how they can easily hear the sound of a
match struck at center-stage. A 2007 study by Nico F. Declercq and
Cindy Dekeyser of the Georgia Institute of Technology indicates that the
astonishing acoustic properties are the result of the advanced design:
The rows of limestone seats filter out low-frequency sounds, such as the
murmur of the crowd, and amplify high-frequency sounds from the
stage.[3]
Olympia
Coordinates: 37°38′17″N 21°37′50″E
Olympia (Greek: Ολυμπία Olympía), a sanctuary of ancient Greece in
Elis, is known for having been the site of the Olympic Games in
classical times, the most famous games in history.
The Olympic Games were held every four years throughout Classical
Antiquity, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD.[2] The first
Olympic Games were in honor of Zeus.
Olympia among the main Greek sanctuaries
The sanctuary, known as the Altis, consists of an unordered arrangement
of various buildings. Enclosed within the temenos (sacred enclosure) are
the Temple of Hera (or Heraion/Heraeum) and Temple of Zeus, the
Pelopion and the area of the altar, where the sacrifices were made. The
hippodrome and later stadium were also to the east.
To the north of the sanctuary can be found the Prytaneion and the
Philippeion, as well as the array of treasuries representing the various
city states. The Metroon lies to the south of these treasuries, with the
Echo Stoa to the East. To the south of the sanctuary is the South Stoa
and the Bouleuterion, whereas the West side houses the Palaestra, the
workshop of Pheidias, the Gymnasion and the Leonidaion.
Olympia is also known for the gigantic ivory and gold statue of Zeus
that used to stand there, sculpted by Pheidias, which was named one of
the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World by Antipater of Sidon. Very
close to the Temple of Zeus which housed this statue, the studio of
Pheidias was excavated in the 1950s. Evidence found there, such as
sculptor's tools, corroborates this opinion. The ancient ruins sit north of
the Alfeios River and Mount Kronos (named after the Greek deity
Kronos). The Kladeos, a tributary of the Alfeios, flows around the area.
Its located in the part of Greece which is called Peloponesse. In Ancient
Greece, Olympia was sacred ground to the Greeks.

History
For a history of the Olympic Games, see Olympic Games or Ancient
Olympic Games.
Prehistory
Remains of food and burnt offerings dating back to the 10th century BC
give evidence of a long history of religious activity at the site. No
buildings have survived from this earliest period of use.[3] Also, the
charred remains of a Homo Heidelbergensis body were found at
Olympia.
Geometric and Archaic periods
Ruins of the Temple of Hera
The first Olympic festival was organized on the site by the authorities of
Elis in the 8th century BC – with tradition dating the first games at 776
BC. Major changes were made to the site around 700 BC, including
levelling land and digging new wells. Elis' power diminished and at the
beginning of the 7th century BC the sanctuary fell into the hands of the
Pisatans in 676 BC. The Pisatans organized the games until the late 7th
century BC.[3]
The earliest evidence of building activity on the site dates from around
600 BC. At this time the Skiloudians, allies of the Pistans, built the
Temple of Hera. The Treasuries and the Pelopion were built during the
course of the 6th century BC. The secular structures and athletic arenas
were also under construction during this period including the
Bouleuterion. The first stadium was constructed around 560 BC, it
consisted of just a simple track. The stadium was remodelled around 500
BC with sloping sides for spectators and shifted slightly to the east.
Over the course of the 6th century BC a range of sports were added to
the Olympic festival. In 580 BC, Elis, in alliance with Sparta, occupied
Pisa and regained the control over the sanctuary.[3]
Classical period
The classical period, between the 5th and 4th centuries BC, was the
golden age of the site at Olympia. A wide range of new religious and
secular buildings and structures were constructed.[4]
The Temple of Zeus was built in the middle of the 5th century BC. Its
size, scale and ornamentation was beyond anything previously
constructed on the site. Further sporting facilities, including the final
iteration of the stadium, and the hippodrome (for chariot-racing) were
constructed. The Prytaneion was built at the north west side of the site in
470 BC.[4]
In the late classical period, further structures were added to the site. The
Metroon was constructed near the Treasuries c.400 BC. The erection of
the Echo Stoa, around 350, separated off the sanctuary from the area of
the games and stadium. The South Stoa was built BC at the southern
edge of the sanctuary at approximately the same time.
Hellenistic period
Ruins of the Philippeion
The late 4th century BC saw the erection of the Philippeion. Around 300
BC the largest building on the site, the Leonidaion, was constructed to
house important visitors. Due to the increasing importance of the games,
further athletic buildings were constructed including the Palaestra (3rd
century BC), Gymnasion (2nd century BC) and bath houses (c.300 BC).
Finally, in 200 BC, a vaulted archway was erected linking the entrance
of the stadium to the sanctuary.[5]
Roman period
During the Roman period, the games were opened up to all citizens of
the Roman Empire. A programme of extensive repairs, including to the
Temple of Zeus, and new building, took place. In 150 AD, the
Nympheum (or Exedra) was built. New baths replaced the older Greek
examples in 100 AD and an aqueduct constructed in 160 AD.[6]
The 3rd century saw the site suffer heavy damage from a series of
earthquakes. Invading tribes in 267 AD led to the centre of the site being
fortified with robbed material from its monuments. Despite the
destruction the Olympic festival continued to be held at the site until the
last Olympiad in 393 AD, after which a decree from the Christian
emperor, Theodosius I implemented a ban. Apparently, the Temple of
Zeus was destroyed around 426 AD following an edict by Theodosius II
enforcing the ban on pagan festivals. The workshop of Pheidias was
turned into a Basilica and the site was inhabited by a Christian
community.[6] Olympia seems to have prospered during the 5th century
AD until Justinian's plague and two Earthquakes devastated it by the
mid-6th century. Repeated floods ensured that the settlement was finally
abandoned altogether in the early 7th Century. Archaeological evidence
suggests that small scale Olympic events (possibly in Christian guise)
were still being secretly held until an earthquake in AD 551 finally
destroyed the place of worship, burying it under mud and debris.
Discovery and early excavations
Over time the site was buried under alluvial deposits, up to 8 meters
deep, long thought to be the result of river flooding. Modern research
hypothesizes instead—based on the presence of mollusc and gastropod
shells and foraminifera— that the site was buried by ocean waters
resulting from repeated tsunamis.[7]
The exact site was re-discovered in 1766 by the English antiquarian
Richard Chandler.[8][9] The first excavation of the sanctuary at Olympia
was not carried out until 1829, by the French "Expedition Scientifique
de Moree".
Since the 1870s, the excavation and preservation of Ancient Olympia
has been the responsibility of the German Archaeological Institute at
Athens. The first major excavation of Olympia began in 1875, funded
by the German government after negotiation of exclusive access by
Ernst Curtius. Other archaeologists responsible for the dig were Gustav
Hirschfeld, George Treu, Adolf Furtwängler (who worked alongside
architects), A. Boetticher, Wilhelm Dörpfeld, and Richard Borrmann.
They excavated the central part of the sanctuary including the Temple of
Zeus, Temple of Hera, Metroon, Bouleuterion, Philipeion, Echo Stoa,
Treasuries and Palaestra. Important finds included sculptures from the
Temple of Zeus, the Nike of Paeonius, the Hermes of Praxiteles and
many bronzes. In total 14,000 objects were recorded. The finds were
displayed in a museum on the site.[10]
1900–1950
Excavation was continued in a more limited way by Dörpfeld between
1908 and 1929 but a new systematic excavation was begun in 1936 on
the occasion of the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin under Emil Kunze
and Hans Schleif. Their excavation focus was on the area to the south of
the stadium, the South stoa, bath complex and gymnasion.[10]
1950 to present
Between 1952 and 1966, Kunze and Schleil continued the excavation
joined by architect Alfred Mallwitz. They excavated Pheidias'
workshop, the Leonidaion and the north wall of the stadium. They also
excavated the southeast section of the sanctuary and out of
approximately 140 debris pits found many bronze and ceramic objects
along with terracotta roof tiles.[10]
Mallwitz took charge of the excavations between 1972 and 1984
revealing important dating evidence for the stadium, graves, and the
location of the Prytaneion. From 1984 to 1996, Helmut Kyrieleis took
over the site and the focus shifted to the earlier history of the sanctuary
with excavation of the Prytaneion and Pelopion.[10]
Modern Olympia
The Olympia stadium Olympia's train station
The Olympic flame of the modern-day Olympic Games is lit by
reflection of sunlight in a parabolic mirror in front of the Temple of
Hera and then transported by a torch to the place where the games are
held. When the modern Olympics came to Athens in 2004, the men's
and women's shot put competition was held at the restored Olympia
stadium.
The town has a train station and is the easternmost terminus of the line of
Olympia-Pyrgos (Ilia). The train station with the freight yard to its west
is located about 300 m east of the town centre. It is linked by GR-74,
and the new road was opened in the 1980s; the next stretch N and NE of
Olympia opened in 2005. The distance from Pyrgos is 20 km (12 mi),
about 50 km (31 mi) SW of Lampeia, W of Tripoli and Arcadia and
4 km (2 mi) north of Krestena and N of Kyparissia and Messenia. The
highway passes north of the ancient ruins. A reservoir is located 2 km
(1 mi) southwest, damming up the Alfeios River. The area is hilly and
mountainous; most of the area within Olympia is forested.
Panagiotis Kondylis, one of the most prominent modern Greek thinkers
and philosophers, was born and raised in Olympia. When Pierre de
Coubertin, the founder of the International Olympic Committee, died in
1937, a monument to him was erected at ancient Olympia. Emulating
Evangelis Zappas, whose head is buried under a statue in front of the
Zappeion, his heart was buried at the monument.[11]
Practical remarks and information to make your stay more
comfortable and safe
Welcoming you at the house we wish you a pleasant stay.
In the meantime we would like to remind you that you now
live in the country side, and some precautions could help you
avoid unlikely events or accidents. It is suggested that,
strolling or using the garden, care should be taken for any
possible existence of snakes, insects, e.t.c. When you leave
your room, it is better that you close the doors, for the unlike
event that a snake or insect creep in the house.
The swimming pool is not deep enough, for plunging or
diving which could cause an accident.
Since the swimming pool has no fence, it is suggested,
children and old aged people to be closely attended.
