Welcome to "MERSINI"
In this little note we could write that Schoinoussa is a calm and incredibly dynamic, small land that sails in the Aegean.
We could perhaps write that it looks like a very expensive, fine perfume in a small bottle sculpted by the waves.
We could tell you that the first “step” of the picturesque, small and completely protected by its “meltemia” port called “Mersini”, will lead you to our tavern “Mersini” (how could they call it differently?).
Maybe we should write that our tables look like boats on the sea, and that whatever you choose for lunch or dinner, are raw materials from our blessed place.
However, if you have just arrived, you will have already confirmed it. But if you are thinking of visiting, we are here to welcome you, to host you in our rooms and take care of you...
From breakfast with your coffee to your lunch, your dinner and your drinks.
But we want to write to you about something bigger and more important that was born here!
I’d like to tell you a few words about the Cyclades, specifically about our favorite small Cyclades.
From this erotic encounter of the land with the sea, everything started.
In the rest of the world the artistic concerns of the first people began in the semi-darkness, in the depths of the caves.
Here in the Aegean, in the Cyclades they manifested themselves on the shore, under the dazzling light of the sun.
The pebbles that smoothed the patience of the sea whispered in his ear, the secret of the eternally modern Cycladic figurines.
The pebbles, the hidden sea embrace of Schoinoussa, will reveal to you what the original idea of the figurines was, when it first invaded the minds of the people of the Bronze Age.
From that time on, until the time when the people ritually deposited the Cycladic figurines in front of “Keros”, many centuries passed in a few years, and the mind made a dramatic leap into eternity.
They only managed to transcend the natural form of matter - carving the adolescent, and forming nose, breasts, arms and legs - but these works left ecstatic great painters and sculptors of the 20th century. The world as a whole…
This is the welcome of our family who was born, raised, lives and works in this place and who wants to make you feel at home.
In this "small land that blows in the Aegean" come to see for yourself how right the poet is when he writes in "Plan for an introduction to the Aegean area" from the collection "En Lefko".
"When the sun rises, the cannons of all the great worldviews catch fire"
Welcome to the fruitful, like a young woman Schinoussa, young like the children’s music in the small embrace of Chora…
Welcome to our island!
