Paula: Melina, you grew up in Montreal, Canada and lived most of your life in North America and Western Europe. A few years ago you traded city life to live by the Mediterranean seaside in Gythio, a small picturesque town in the southern Peloponnese in Greece.
Melina: Yes, until a few years ago, I was the epitome of a city girl; born and bred with public transportation and all conveniences on hand; in the heart of the hustle and bustle of places with populations exceeding those of some small countries. “Nature” was confined to public parks and “weekend getaways” in the countryside.
Here in Gythio only a herd of wayward goats may disturb my morning commute rather than bumper-to-bumper traffic.
Paula: What were you doing in Montreal?
Melina: In Montreal, I mainly ran a rail equipment company. Prior to that, I spent most of my career working in Finance, including a stint as head of corporate finance and analysis in an Athens brokerage firm. Then during the mid-2010s, my life, circumstances, and my general state of mind radically changed.
So when I came here to Gythio I put some of the knowledge I had acquired through my life’s journey to use by assisting local proprietors with their holiday properties. So what started off a side-line has slowly turned into a burgeoning business.
Paula: The Greeks are well known for their warmhearted hospitality. What does hospitality mean to you as a professional?
Melina: Hosting for me has always been about gauging guests‘ needs and then trying to offer them as meaningful an experience as possible. This process often begins long before they arrive, and hopefully, our bond continues well after their visit is through.
I want to share my love for this region and assist visitors to Gythio and Southern Lakonia as a whole.
Paula: What do you love most about your new home?
Melina: The many different hues of the sea. Before moving here, I never knew how many different shades of blue existed. Every day the sea seems to change color as it reflects the sky and the light of the sun dances across it. It varies from a deep rich blue to a greeny turquoise and every shade imaginable in between.
Melina is aiming to showcase the natural bounty of the area of Gythio in Greece, its historical sights, breathtaking vistas, and local culture and cuisine.
