The mountain villages

“Places like that, the people have no silver, but they feed us at their own tables, and the children follow us everywhere”― George R.R. Martin.

Most of the pictures are taken in the beautiful Mani where I have lived since 2017.  Mani’s mountains villages are as glorious as her coastlines. And they have the added advantage of being much lesser-known. These pristine, unspoiled locations reward the traveler with peerless beauty, authentic architectural charm, and excellent cuisine. 

Below photos from villages such as: Pigi, Platsa, Nomitsi, Neochori, Prosilio, Proastio, Tseria, Milea and more. Old villages of Western Mani in a magnificent natural environment and with plenty of stories.
