Project Bodhi with Julia Kramer: Part 4 - A visit to Eumelia, Greece

The water is boiling for the Greek coffee as I take another bite of the organic lavender cookie, a slight sweetness lingering as it crumbles in my mouth. Marilena Karadima baked these with lavender picked from the garden. I lean back on the soft, cushioned couch, framed against the burnt Siena walls in my Eco-house here at Eumelia Organic Agrotourism Farm & Guesthouse.

Located 13 km from the iconic Lakonikos Gulf in the Peloponnese region of Greece, Eumelia is an organic farm with luxury, eco-friendly lodging that embodies both agrotourism and ecotourism. Every furnishing and design was created with intention, style, and most importantly, a sustainable focus, offering guests an opportunity to relax and take in the peacefulness of the property. From practicing yoga outdoors to taking a walk through the vineyards and olive groves to partaking in a gastronomy cooking class or wine and olive oil tasting, there is something for everyone here.
