The Solarium – Soothing Summer Solace at Genius Loci

The  Solarium at Genius Loci offers summer solace and respite from even the hottest summer days:  the cool views of the gently rolling countryside, lush vineyards, weathered antique terracotta statues, hand-built stone and antique brick walls, blazing geranium and oleander blossoms, majestic groves of olive trees, geometric patterns of wheat, sunflowers and hay cultivations.

On these long summer days, along with the soothing solace of the inviting panoramic solarium, the crystal clear water of the pool works its magic.  Together, they instill the deepest sense of well being, profound calming, oneness of mind and body and offer vital nourishment of the soul – inviting us to slow down, to simply be, to stay in the moment.
