The March 17th feast in Mani

 

Mani and especially Areopolis is proud for being the place where the great Greek Revolution against the Turks was initiated on the 17th of March in 1821.

This year's festivity is expected to be particularly bright and folklore.

Στη Μάνη η νέα διαφήμιση της Apple

Στη Μάνη η νέα διαφήμιση της Apple

 

 

Η Apple κέρδισε τις εντυπώσεις με τη νέα της διαφήμιση για το iPhone 7 Plus, η οποία γυρίστηκε εξ’ ολοκλήρου στην Ελλάδα και πιο συγκεκριμένα στη Μάνη. Τα τοπία που θα δείτε είναι από τα χωριά Οίτυλο και Καραβοστάσι, όλοι οι συμμετέχοντες είναι Έλληνες και μιλάνε στα ελληνικά με αγγλικούς υπότιτλους.

Το βίντεο με τίτλο «Take Mine» δημοσιεύθηκε στις 7 Ιανουαρίου 2017 στο επίσημο Youtube κανάλι της Apple και μέσα σε 2 ημέρες ξεπέρασε το 1 εκατομμύριο προβολές. Η διαφήμιση επικεντρώνεται στη λειτουργία του Πορτρέτου, η οποία είναι διαθέσιμη αποκλειστικά στις μεγαλύτερες συσκευές της Apple. Το «Take Mine» έκανε επίσημη πρεμιέρα στη διάρκεια της απονομής για τις Χρυσές Σφαίρες 2017.

Πρωταγωνιστεί μια νεαρή κοπέλα, η οποία φτάνει στο μικρό χωριό της Μάνης για να επισκεφθεί τη γιαγιά της. Πίνοντας καφέ στο καφενείο, η εγγονή χρησιμοποιεί το κινητό της για να βγάλει φωτογραφία τη γιαγιά κάνοντας χρήση του εφέ για βάθος πεδίου. Η φωτογραφία εντυπωσιάζει την γιαγιά αλλά και τους συγχωριανούς, οι οποίοι σπεύδουν να ποζάρουν και αυτοί.

Έτσι, η εγγονή αρχίζει να φωτογραφίζει όλο το χωριό, τα παιδιά, τις γειτόνισσες, τον ιερέα, τον ταχυδρόμο, έναν ψαρά, την φουρνάρισσα και έναν βοσκό.

H μουσική που ακούγεται στη διαφήμιση είναι το «Πάμε στη Χονολουλού» του Κώστα Μπέζου.

Mani local tastes

Specialities

 

During the last summer the New Oitylo (Tsipa) extended seaside welcomed many visitors. To our guests of the coming 2017 season, who would choose to take their swimming there, we would suggest tasting the delicious snacks specially prepared by Dimitris in the ManiBella restaurant-café at the south part of the beach. A sort of them, named by young Fotis "the maniat club-sandwich", is pictured below.

 

Specially prepared pancake with sfela cheese, salad and red wine. What else...!

Mani adventures part I

Pirates in Mani

 

Inside looking out! The Mavros (Black) pirate cave. This extraordinary nature creation, homing bright turquoise waters, is located about five nautical miles south of Oitylo bay. It once used to be a pirates’ refuge. At those times (17th century) a “fusta” could be accommodated inside the cave without being visible from outside.

Short visits by boat can be arranged on request.

Privacy Enjoying!

Enjoy

 

This is a kind gesture image shot by certain of our customer-friends on a rarely seen warm overcast early-autumn afternoon of this year’s summer season. Eggplant salad, freshly cooked fish, the local firewater (tsipouro) accompanied by the ultimate in privacy and a view to die for. Who needs more?

Romantic moments in Mani

Full Moon

 

Oitylo bay under a romantic full moon. The concept represents the sentiments of certain Holland guests (who shot the picture from the Theofano veranda) during an August full moon night.

One of our guests in the inflatable boat we hired for them shot this beautiful picture of the British yacht HETAIROS in the bay of Oitylo. Soukidia Villas are seen at the background “resting” on top the bowsprit.

From the 2013 season summer sports are taking place in the bay of Oitylo. Visit our Facebook© page for reports of related activities.
