Lagadi is an off grid yurt camp set on the edge of stunning gorge with lovely views of the Messinian coastline and surrounding mountains. The camp is located on the lower slopes of the Taygetos mountain range above Stoupa beach and other popular holiday hangouts in the Mani peninsula such as Agios Nikolaos. The elevated position affords peace and quiet without being too far from local villages, the coast, numerous tavernas and bars. The camp is just 2.5 kilometres by road from the charming holiday resort of Stoupa with its sandy beaches.
We wanted to bring our environmentally friendly home to fruition without spending a fortune or pouring tonnes of concrete on our land. Yurt camping was the obvious solution as yurts are affordable and leave a minimal footprint on the planet. The circular design was a major attraction as there is something magical about being in a circular space. Our yurts perfectly compliment the authentic Mediterranean landscape and blend into the natural environment. There is always that sense of being close and connected to nature.
Yurt camping may seem strange to some people who favour more conventional ways of living. The round shape is unusual in itself, let alone the thought of sleeping under canvas year round! They are often surprised when they enter the space because of the simple beauty and light. Once you know how they work the entire concept of yurt camping becomes less bewildering. We have been camping in yurts for a few years now and our home is unlike any other in the Mani peninsula. We live a simple but green and peaceful lifestyle.
We appreciate living close to nature and the relaxed vibe of our yurts, with awe-inspiring mountain views and perfectly blue Mediterranean Sea. Off-the-grid living is going well in this small corner of the world! We invite you to take a look around our new website to view our yurts, and learn more about "living in the round" and the local area. If you have yet to decide where to go on holiday this summer and are fond of Greece, consider the beautiful villages of Stoupa, Agios Nikolaos or Kardamyli for a relaxing and peaceful holiday.
