The Area

Serendipity Institute is located in Greece, in a suburb of the city of Athens. It is standing between the Acropolis and the Poseidon Temple of Sounio in alignment with the two most important ancient monuments of Athens, within their energy field.

It is located in an extremely serene spot, away from the fuss of the town, on a slope of a hill, in the embrace of a pinewood, within walking distance from a beautiful and sandy beach. However going to the beach is not your only option. Heading to the opposite direction you can go hiking on the hill and enjoy the view and the stunning sunset.

Serendipity Institute is just a 25 minutes drive away from the biggest airport of the country, in Athens and just 40 minutes away from the center of Athens by car.

Just a few bus stops away from the Institute in the area of Sounio, you have the opportunity for a magical experience of meditation in the highly charged area of the ancient temple of Poseidon. The temple stands on a rock of 60 meters above the sea, overlooking the deep blue sea, serving as a place of worship since the 6th century B.C. The aura of the place has enormous energy and it is well known for its high vibrations as many ancient mystical rituals took place in the temple for centuries. The mesmerizing combination of clear light reflected on the marble rocks with the energy of the refreshing sea breeze, supports an enormous energy field that makes the place ideal for meditation.

Horse Riding: There are two equestrian clubs in the vicinity, with excellent facilities and fully equipped, in case you would like to go or learn horse riding. One of them organizes, on request, rides at the close by hill with the instructor escorting you.

Water sports/beach sports: There is a variety of water sports you can try such as windsurfing, water skiing and scuba diving. Many diving schools, well equipped and with experienced instructors, are here to offer you their services. You can even participate in beach volley or rackets tournaments, organized on many beaches.

Caves of Lavrio and minerals: Ancient Athens owed its wealth partly to the silver which was excavated at the quarries of Lavrio. Due to this silver Athens was able to build the majority of its monuments and this silver was the main reason for the Persian War. In modern times the quarry continued to function until 1981. Today, the quarry is no longer in operation but it is open to public. Visiting its premises as well as the tunnels, wearing the necessary equipment for your protection, is a very interesting experience. Ancient and modern facilities are maintained and many minerals are still on the walls of the quarry for you to see.

Vouliagmeni Lake: A natural, oval-shaped pool of incomparable beauty, with the entrance to a 3.125 meters long underwater cave opened at its bottom. The water comes out from springs 50 to 100 meters deep. The temperature of the lake is stable between 22ο C and 29οC all year long. It is estimated that the level of the lake exceeds by 50cm the level of the sea and thus it flows into the sea due to the overflow. In this way, the water of the lake is constantly renewed by its hot springs. The therapeutic effects of the hot spring derives from its qualities and the constituents of the water (potassium, sodium, lithium, ammonium, calcium, ferrum, chloride, iodine and a small amount of radiation)
