THE MYTHOLOGY BEHIND PHYSIS VILLAS
In ancient Greek religion and mythology, the Muses are the inspirational goddesses of literature, science, and the arts. They were called Muses or Mouses in Greek, as the Greek word “mosis” refers to the desire and wish.
According to the Greek Myths, God Zeus bewildered the young woman Mnemosyne and slept with her for nine consecutive nights. The result of their encounter was the Nine Muses, who were similar to everything. Μnemosyne gave the babies to Nymph Eufime and God Apollo. When they grew up they showed their tendency to the arts, taught by God Apollo himself. They were not interested in anything of the regular human everyday life and they wanted to dedicate their lives to the Arts. Apollo brought them to the big and beautiful Mount Elikonas, where the older Temple of Zeus used to be. Ever since, the Muses supported and encouraged creation, enhancing imagination and inspiration of the artists.
Physis Villas are built at the foot of the hill, where the muses were dancing while God Apollo was playing his harp. That’s how we got inspired and named the two villas.
