Chalkidiki: a whole other Greece

Here rest is sacred. Mysterious, out of time, Mount Athos reserves surprises for those who love the sea. You dive into crystal clear waters at the foot of the monasteries and discover seaside taverns, designer bars, excellent cuisine. To be discovered in the journey of our envoys from Ouranoupolis to Sithonia

Blasphemous? A dive in front of the monasteries of Mount Athos. Impossible? Even women can swim around the sacred mountain. Yet … this monastic republic, which forbids entry to the other half of the sky and has rules of life frozen a thousand years ago, is only part of a peninsula stretched out for 50 kilometers in the Aegean, one of the three “fingers” in which it cuts off the Chalkidiki Peninsula. A charming bathing destination, as are the beaches and islets around the sacred mountain, perpetually hooded by snow spray on the summit, at 2,033 meters. Although women are excluded from the territory of the monastic republic, they have access to the rest of the Mount Athos peninsula. On the contrary, they can see the most important monasteries from the sea, renting a boat or with cruises that parade in front of the coast for three or four hours. This limb of Chalkidiki, which in the imaginary is consecrated to a theocratic and monastic world, is a surprise.

Base for the holiday is the village of Ouranoupolis, the coming and going of hunters of beaches, of orthodox pilgrims and of mountaineering enthusiasts directed to Mount Athos (at least 30 thousand people a year), for a mystical experience or trekking among 20 monasteries, 250 cells and caves of anchorites, olive groves, vineyards and forests. The most famous beach is Komitsa, long, sandy, with the sea fading from transparent to emerald. On the left, a promontory covered with pines, the champagne bar and the English lawn reserved for guests of Avaton Luxury Villas; on the right, the Mediterranean maquis and the Athos Villas for rent. Or you can go to Skala, which faces Ammouliani and the Drenia, six wild islets, and book the Eagles Palace & Spa, a large hotel, with many services and solutions, from large rooms and marine colors, to the garden or beach bungalows. In addition to organizing water sports and picnics on Goat Island beach, with white sand and crystal backdrops, the hotel rents boats to swim around the Drenia or Ammouliani. The latter has a rocky side and a softer one, incised by small beaches. The most important is Karagatsi: yellow sand, blue and tamarisk waters. Even if you do not stay at the Eagles Palace, the suggestion is to treat yourself to a dinner on the terrace of his restaurant Kamares by Spondi; the menu is designed by Arnaud Bignon, starred chef in London and Athens. Otherwise you will have dinner in the village, from Kritikos, which is supplied directly by the caiques and is also a creative fashion boutique.

The symbol of Ouranoupolis is the Byzantine tower near the port, from which one embarks to sail along the sacred mountain. An indelible emotion. Seagulls and kites fly in the sky. The sea has something absolute, pure, inviolate. In front of the eyes, here is the thousand-year-old forest of plane trees, poplars and pines of Aleppo; then the main monasteries stand out: Simonopetra and Dionysiou, similar to fortified towers; the golden stones of Hilandar, Serbian; the sumptuous immensity of St. Panteleimon, Russian, frequented by Putin. A mumble comes from the sea. It is the engine of a small boat that approaches, unloads high prelates from the vestments that display silver reliquaries with relics, while the simple monks set up a banquet of olives, honey, white wine Mylopotamos, forcibly bio, because Mount Athos is cultivated as Byzantium times. They come from Xenophontos, a monastery founded in 1,010 BC. Meetings with a world that is thought to have vanished, but it is not. Returning to port, as unforgettable, by Byzandino (phone 0030.23.77.07.10.82), the shop of Socrates Chadalis, who speaks Italian because he sells icons to a shop in Borgo Pio, in the Vatican. Great storyteller, Chadalis tells anecdotes of the monasteries, shows the icons of the painter Paulo Evangelopoulos, who have cheerful colors, depicting Virgins gripping roses, saints from life worthy of a saga, as “Giovanni Damasceno, Doctor of the Church and administrator of an Umayyad caliphate “. Chadalis will remain the classic memorable vacation meeting. Which continues without more holy steps.

Impressionists, rural life and hermitages. The other Ibiza Impressionists, rural life and hermitages.

Sea, nightlife, but not only. The most chaotic of the Balearic Islands, synonymous with rave party and nightlife, also has another hidden face. Let’s find out

Beware of imitations. There are no places like Ibiza. Perfect for a weekend. Amazing for a holiday. Or maybe even to live there. Between music, sea and nights that end when the sun is already high, it has been voted a paradise of fun. But not only. A simple and chic refuge, it offers an alternative and relaxed way of life. Banning the usual places though. As the city of Eivissa, a crowded homeland of nightlife, the ultra-touristy Playa d’en Bossa, with its chaotic disco-beaches rave party day and night, or San Antonio, famous for the famous local Cafe del Mar, which every evening attracts hundreds of tourists for an aperitif at sunset. Better is the elegant Santa Eulalia, in the east area. Here you can breathe the most authentic air of the island, suitable for those who want to explore its cultural and gastronomic tradition. The old windmills, the Fortress of El Puig, from the 16th century.

But also the two museums, the Barrau, which preserves the collection of the Catalan Impressionist Laureà Barrau, and that of Ethnography, which collects contemporary art, jewelry, historical documents and traditional crafts. San Jose is the alternative, with its many churches to visit, such as Sant Jordi de Ses Salinas and Sant Francesc de S’Estany. There are the remains of the Phoenician village of Sa Caleta and the Punic one of Ses Paises. Going north-east you get to San Juan, a quiet center where you can see natural shows like the cave of Can Marcà, where fossils of 100 thousand years ago were found, now kept in the Naturalistic Museum of the place. Here you can visit the Cova des Cuieram, an ancient sanctuary built for the Carthaginian goddess of love, Tanit. Do not miss the Portinatx area, one of the most enchanting areas of the island, which offers amazing views and one of the most beautiful coasts. But it is not the only one.
Impressionists, rural life and hermitages. The other Ibiza

The hinterland of Ibiza has a special charm, because of its rural and arid landscapes, among stone villas, olive fields and retreats where you can practice meditation and yoga. But the beaches are the true wealth of the island. Starting from Es Jondal, a cove located in the area south of the island, in the wide bay of Porroig, near San Josep de sa Talaia. With a pebble beach and turquoise waters, about half a kilometer long, surrounded by typically Mediterranean vegetation, it is a secluded and silent destination, ideal to appreciate the wild side of the island. For those looking for Caribbean-style paradises, the most popular destination is Ses Salinas. White and fine sand beach as talcum powder, transparent and warm waters, is part of the homonymous protected natural park, for its high ecological value. And then the hidden Cala Salada, famous for its turquoise waters, or the beautiful Cala Conta, Cala Bassa, Cala Llonga, the white Cala Tarida or Talamanca, the longest. But the quieter is Cala Molì. Set in a rocky inlet, it is a little gem, with its scarce one hundred meters. Far from the chaotic Eivissa, it is, thanks to its rich and clean waters, a favorite destination for snorkelers diving, who go as far as the neighboring islet of S’Espertar. Getting there is not easy: the ideal is by sea. But once you reach it, paradise is touched by hand.

But if you say Ibiza, you say also movida. The most famous among the locals is the Pacha, historical club of Eivissa, has an elegant atmosphere and offers evenings with the great stars of the console; Do not miss the terrace overlooking the city. Among the most interesting places there is the DC10, home of Circoloco evenings, it is on the airport road: it is the least scenic club but offers the best electronic performances. Parties until midday also at Amnesia and at Priviledge, the biggest club in Europe. So, the after party: at Space, a party that lasts 24 hours in a row.

Skiing and trekking for all tastes

The Bardonecchia commercial is “365 days of sport” and looking at the opportunities offered is perfectly spot on. In winter you can indulge yourself: cross-country and alpine skiing (100 km of slopes and 23 lifts), snowshoeing and snowboarding. Just 5 minutes from the center, thanks to a free shuttle you can reach the Jafferau area that reaches the peak of 2800 meters high and allows you to ski mostly outboard, in high altitude environment, with an unparalleled view of the mountains surrounding and endless possibilities for spring off-piste itineraries.

In the summer, in addition to racing bikes and mountain bikes, for trekking or simple excursions, you will be spoiled for choice. There is something for everyone: paths, mule tracks and military roads from the valley floor to the mountain tops, from 1,300 to 3,500 meters above sea level. The wide variety adapts to the needs of all fans. Along sunny routes and walks through the forests of fir and larch you can reach the most famous peaks of Bardonecchia and the Upper Val di Susa: the Red Guglia, the Val Fredda, the Tre Croci, the Sommeiller glacier, Mount Tabor and the peaks of the Pierre Menue with the possibility of stopping at the alpine refuges or at the numerous mountain pastures at altitude.

For history buffs, however, do not miss the Fort Bramafam, a fortification erected at the end of the nineteenth century to defend Bardonecchia (and especially the Turin-Modane railway line and the Frejus railway tunnel), for extension and armament it can be considered the largest fortified work of the late nineteenth century in the Cozie Alps. Today the Fort is a museum that hosts exhibitions and events.

Finally a little curiosity: the Rochemolles Dam hosts the World of diving from great heights: the athletes launch from a height that varies between 22 and 27 meters and the water below must have a minimum depth between 4 and 5 meters. But this is a discipline only for professionals.

The anti-HIV pill, before going to Ibiza

Always the condom and the test, but above all the pill Prep: to beat the HIV virus (even before a holiday) the formula is this. Word of the infectivologist Andrea Gori

A man and a woman shake hands, then the image opens and the hands become very many: it is the video that Dr. Andrea Gori, 55, director of the infectious diseases department of the Fondazione Irccs Policlinico of Milan, shows to the youngsters that meets in high schools. It works like the six degrees of separation.

One thinks: I’m fine, my relationship is monogamous, no risk of getting infected with HIV. Not understanding that, even if your partner is loyal, having a sexual relationship with him you go to bed with all those with whom he went to bed in time, and so on
.

To combat the spread of the virus, with which about 36 million people live in the world, back from June 6 to 10 Convivio, charity exhibition-market promoted by the fashion world in support of Anlaids.

“The aid is needed because unfortunately in Italy, to date, there has never been a significant decrease in the new diagnoses of HIV, which remain about 4 thousand a year. Without taking into account a 30% “submerged” ».

Who is HIV positive today in Italy?
«Statistically, the highest incidence is in males (76.9% of new infections, ed) between 25 and 29 years».

Is the problem always the non-use of condoms?
“Yes, we stayed there. More than 8 times out of 10 the infection occurs with unprotected intercourse. It is a cultural problem, in high schools the boys – while claiming to practice a free sexuality – say they do not talk about it with their parents or teachers, then we are amazed by the boom of 300% of syphilis cases ».

Do you have any children? What would you recommend them?
“I have six. First of all to use the condom, and to take the test: for a year and a half, in the pharmacy there is the do-it-yourself test, which costs about 20 euros, and that allows a twenty year old to know immediately if it is seropositive, and avoid him to find out ten years later when he already has symptoms: on average the males realize it at 39, the females at 36 “.

What life expectancy has a patient today?
“It depends on when he discovers he is HIV-positive. A healthy 20-year-old who starts antiretroviral therapy, which today consists of only one pill a day, has a life expectancy of 78 years “.

We also talk a lot about Prep (Pre-exposure prophylaxis), do you prescribe it?
“Very. There are a lot of seronegative people going to Ibiza, for example, and first they are prescribed antiretroviral drugs because they know they will have promiscuous relationships. The use, which works practically at 100%, is similar to that of the contraceptive pill: one a day. It costs about 70 euros a month, in Italy it is not free, as for example in France ».

Dream trips: the Maldives resort with the slide to dive into the sea

Find the child in you: in the Maldives, in the Noonu Atoll, there is a resort with two-story villas equipped with a slide, to dive directly into the sea as soon as you wake up. It is one of the most beautiful, because built on the coral reef

Soneva Jani, a resort opened just over a year ago in the Maldives, around the island of Medhufaru, is located half an hour from the capital Male. It can only be reached by seaplane, which lands at the floating airport, or by motorboat. The 24 overwater villas are set on a beautiful lagoon of crystal clear water, connected to each other by a wooden walkway. Each has a private 13-meter pool where lucky guests can sunbathe and relax overlooking the lagoon or dive directly into the ocean via a slide.

Soneva Jani, from the name of the two owners of the structure, Sonu Shivdasani, a British Indian who 20 years ago with his wife Eva discovered the island on their honeymoon (over the years have opened other resorts), focuses on responsible tourism and eco sustainable. The pools use desalinated sea water while the villas are built above the lagoon so as not to damage the coral reef. Furthermore, waste is treated in order not to throw away anything.

At guests’ disposal there are also an astronomical observatory and an open-air cinema. To protect the nesting of sea turtles and wildlife, viewers can watch the movie with Bluetooth headphones.

Some of the villas on the water also have a retractable roof to admire the stars from the bedroom. A holiday in the luxury resort, however, has its price: six nights in one of the villas (550 square meters, two bathrooms, two bedrooms, for 4 people) start at 20,000 euros.

With Zrce Beach, the popular 24-hour beach, the best international DJs and the famous clubs Papaya, Calypso, Aquarius and Noah Club, it is a timeless guarantee for the fans of discos and parties from all over the world.

Those who prefer to take a bath in a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere can then opt for the mysticism of the tiny island of Lokrum, with its Benedictine monastery, which can be reached by a quarter of an hour’s boat from Dubrovnik, or choose the beautiful bay of pebbles of Senjavac, the cult destination of naturists overlooking the Gulf of Kvarner.

But those who really want to enjoy the calm and peace of these places can practice birdwatching, that is to observe the birds and with them all the fauna and flora of the island.

8 happy and hippy addresses in Ibiza

 

The author of the new book “Ibiza Bohemia” reveals the most “freak” places on the Balearic island. To shop, sleep and meditate

Well before the VIPs (see under Belén, Alessia Marcuzzi and Federica Nargi), Ibiza has been for years the cult island of flower children, coming from all over the world and attracted by its uncontaminated nature. To remind us of the hippy past of the famous “Isla Blanca”, among the most loved islands in the Mediterranean, is the new book “Ibiza Bohemia” (Assouline) by Renu Kashyap, stylist who has moved here with her family since 2012 and today he wanted to honor his new “homeland”.

From the beaches where bongos play to peaceful shelters where they practice yoga, the hippie-chic atmosphere of Ibiza, belonging to the group of the Balearic Islands, is its hallmark, explains Renu in his book (full of beautiful photographs), so much so that the dress code – good from morning till evening – provides a pareo, flip-flops and at most some ethnic collanina.

Landing for artists, creatives and musicians from all over the world (including Mick Jagger and Kate Moss), since the Summer of Love its freak mood has remained intact, especially in some magical places.

“I left the carabiniere uniform and now I defend the natives of the Balearics. Goodbye Italy “

Giovanni Alberto Orlando, 58, has worked in counterintelligence and counter-terrorism and managed a company for airport security. Then he changed his life: “Now I have no masters and I am free to devote myself to my passion, I am a supporter of happy degrowth, and money, as an object of saving or accumulation, literally makes me horror”

If you open the internet page of your association, you are greeted by the sound of a donkey bray. “A bray will save us”. This is the motto of Giovanni Alberto Orlando, a 58-year-old former carabiniere who put his uniform in a wardrobe to move to the Balearic Islands where he manages Asno Balear Ibiza, which takes care of reintroducing a kind of indigenous donkey. “I do not miss my job, now I have no bosses and I am free to devote myself to my passion”. The donkey, in fact, has always been an animal that has undergone the charm of the 58-year-old from Varese, both because of the dual value of a humble and devoted animal, “whether because of the sacred aura of when he was ridden by Jesus, or because it is the incarnation of stubbornness, rebellion and shameless sensuality “. A passion that took even more body when Giovanni discovered the Spanish archipelago, almost 40 years ago.

I do not miss my job. I fell in love with these places in the eighties
“I first came to Ibiza in the early eighties, falling in love with it at first sight. Since then I have continued to come back, even living permanently for longer or shorter periods. More than just Italian I have always felt homo mediterraneus “. And just in Ibiza and Formentera the former carabiniere was able to give vent to his passion for donkeys, he became aware of an ancient donkey race originating in the Balearic Islands but now almost disappeared, so as to be included in the Spanish breeds in danger of extinction . A decline began with the mechanization of the countryside and the exodus of the rural population of the sixties. “Today, it is even more important to reintroduce this breed to allow it to clean the undergrowth and reduce the risk of forest fires”. The Balearic Islands, in fact, according to the data of the association Asno Balear Ibiza, suffered 69 forest fires in 2016. “The forest mass of Ibiza is in a serious or extreme risk zone”, continues the former carabiniere, telling how the management through extensive grazing on the island of Ibiza can help to reduce the fuel load in the forest, reducing the risk of fires.

After a degree in law, the choice to live between Ibiza and Italy dates back to 28 years ago, when Giovanni took leave from the Carabinieri, where he carried out counter-espionage and counter-terrorism functions. For the next ten years, the 58-year-old from Varese set up a company with which he managed part of the private security at the Milan Linate and Malpensa airports. Today, set aside the uniform and the uniform as an overseer, the days flow in a paradise of sun, sea and people from all over the world. “Now I live on rent and I have finally supported my long-standing passion for nature and the environment. I would never ever return to Italy permanently. My partner is resigned, but I go to visit her every month “. Even if the one-way ticket for the archipelago is always ready in your pocket.

Today it is even more important to reintroduce donkeys to clean the undergrowth and reduce the risk of forest fires
It is told about a flight from Ibiza to Milan, the former carabiniere, now used to having the only flaw the return flight to Italy once a month. “I became a fervent advocate of happy degrowth. Money, as an object of savings or accumulation, makes me literally horror. Everything related to materialism and consumerism is now part of my antecedent and totally outdated life “. How the idea of ​​aging in Italy belongs to its past existence. “During the institutional service I solemnly swore six times fidelity to the country and to the Constitution. In truth, I think I have already given abundantly “.

S’Espalmador, the Balearic island sold to a magnate

So far S’Espalmador was known as an earthly paradise, but a tycoon bought it for just under 20 million euros

S’Espalmador is a small island in the Balearic Islands off the coast of Formentera and not far from Ibiza. Until now it was known as a paradise on earth, a favorite destination for those who practice naturism and the passionate sailors who throw anchor in its crystal clear waters to make memorable baths. But from next summer nobody will be able to set foot.
The island has just been sold for just under 20 million euros to a Luxembourg magnate.
On the island, only 137 hectares large (3 km long and 800 wide), there are very few buildings: two houses, a chapel and a watchtower. Also now owned by the magnate.
S’Espalmador can also be reached on foot from Formentera when there is low tide. Many tourists come here to immerse themselves in the natural mud that seems to be a cure for the skin.
The island was in fact already privately owned and belonged to the Catalan architect Norman Cinnamond, but it still remained in Spanish hands. He had been in the real estate market for three years, but the local government could not get it.
The old owners allowed thousands of tourists to arrive safely on the island during the summer. We will have to see if the new one will also be of such broad views.
The new owner is however aware of the fact that S’Espalmador is part of the Ses Salines Natural Park and therefore must be protected by law and maintained as it is.
The park extends from the southern edge of Ibiza to the northern part of Formentera and, in addition to S’Espalmador, includes the islands of Es Penjats, S’Espardell, the Illes Negres and the rocks of Escull d’en Terra, En Caragoler, Seca de Sa Barqueta.
From the S’Espalmador beach you can easily see the lights of Ibiza’s nightclubs and beach bars, just a few nautical miles away and reachable by boat. Without being disturbed by noise. A paradise, in short, perhaps now lost.

Balearic Islands: what to see

The Balearic Islands are located between Spain and the North African coast, and surrounded by the waters of the Mediterranean. Every summer the Balearic Islands welcome thousands of tourists of all nationalities thanks to miles of fine sandy beaches, scorching sun, excellent restaurants and exuberant nightlife.
What is surprising is that Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera – that is, the Balearic Islands – have managed to maintain, despite massive tourism, a certain integrity. In addition to bars, beaches and entertainment 24 hours a day, in the Balearics you will find Gothic cathedrals, Neolithic megaliths, fishing villages, beautiful rural paths and stretches of orange groves and olive groves as far as the eye can see. he managed to spoil these delicate corners of Spain

The Balearic Islands are an archipelago of the western Mediterranean Sea and form an autonomous community of Spain consisting of four islands: Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera, and a single province. Also part of the Balearic archipelago is the smaller island of Cabrera, which houses the homonymous natural park, and some islets. The capital of the Balearic Islands is Palma de Mallorca, while the official languages ​​are both Catalan and Spanish. Also called the islands of eternal spring for their mild climate throughout the year, the Balearics are one of the most popular destinations in Spain and beyond. Their beaches are famous all over the world but, despite this, it is still possible to find pristine and heavenly beaches, especially in Menorca and Formentera. Although very close to each other, the islands are decidedly different from each other, and this is mainly due to their different historical heritage. Ibiza and Formentera are the most famous and the most popular (especially by Italians), while Mallorca and Menorca are more reserved and quiet.

In Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza land a lot of charter and line flights from all over Europe. Among the main airlines flying non-stop from Italy there are Ryanair, Easyjet, Vueling, Meridiana, Neos, Air Europa and Iberia. Direct flights are from May until October; in autumn and winter you will necessarily have to make a stopover in Spain.

By ferry Due to its small size, Formentera does not have an airport and can only be reached by ferry from Ibiza. From Barcelona you can reach Palma, Alcudia (in the northeastern part of Mallorca) via Ciutadella (on the island of Menorca), Maó and Sant Antoni (Ibiza). Then there are several companies that connect the four islands to each other. All these services are active from mid-May to September. Out of season the frequency drops considerably.

Majorca is the island with the most local transport: there are two railway lines and a complete bus network that will allow you to reach any location on the island. There are also around 30 car rental agencies and you can hire bikes in many of the island’s villages.

Menorca instead does not have an equally developed transport network and, for example, to reach Maó from the airport you have to take a taxi. Three bus companies operate on the island and there are several car, motorbike and bicycle rental agencies. The transport network of

Ibiza has bus lines that reach all the locations on the island. In general, especially in Menorca and Ibiza it is preferable to rent a car to have the freedom to reach even the most hidden coves.

In Formentera you just need to rent a motorbike or a bicycle because the distances are short.
