Firstly I'll tell that Elixirion is special, very special and lovely place with unique disposition!.. We were really impressed when got this wonderful place after so long way from Zakynthos! (By the way, firstly we found another Karavostasi by our GPS which was located 85 km away, so we were in Elixirion very late - just before 11 pm, but Dimitry met us and Maria cooked very delicious supper for us, so we immediately felt ourselves like at home).
And when we wake up in the morning and the sun was shining already we saw fantastic picture: the sea, mountains and almost nobody nearby! On the contrary - in Zakynthos there was so crowdly and a lot of tourists. That's why here, in Elixirion we could feel real Greece, authentic Greece with it's picturesque places, hospitable people and delicious meal!
I want to thank Maria, Dimirtros and their beautiful girls for making our holidays unforgettable!
And I advice everybody who will be there to visit Dirou caves also: it's the wonder of nature!

It was our first time at Elixirion and it will definitely not be our last! The guesthouse was beautiful, and mrs. Maria and her family made our stay unforgettable! It is located in a wonderful little bay opposite Limeni and you can access nearby villages and beaches easily with a car. The guesthouse, which is built in the style of traditional Mani towers, was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. Above all we enjoyed mrs. Maria's cooking for breakfast and dinner and her lovely spirit. The breakfast was one of the highlights for us, as it went far beyond our expectations! Every day was a different selection of delicious homemade goods (pies, cakes, etc.), served by the sea, enjoying the lovely view. Generally we would recommend it to anyone going to that part of Mani.

Kyria Maria to glyko tou koutaliou me ta moura itan yperoxo! Euxaristoume poly!

This is my second time at Elixirion. Four years ago I happened upon this amazing place and this time I just had to show my wife the paradise that Dimitris and Maria have created. The guesthouse design is beautiful, artistic and truly personal. The host family pampers you. Mani is magic and the location in the Itilo Bay is breathtaking. Marias' cooking makes you not wanting to leave and please do not miss Dimitiris' huge biological gardens where everything served at Elixirion is grown. We can't wait to stay at Elixirion again!

We stayed here Sept 2012 for a week. It was just perfect! The hotel is extremely pretty, with traditional Mani architecture and very well decorated; the personal touch of the owners is obvious. Our economy room was cute, clean and very relaxing. The little balcony/garden was very pleasant and we had nice view of the sea, although only on the first floor. If u want undisturbed view get the 2nd floor. The hotel was populated by very nice couples, the village is tiny very relaxing, plenty of parking space. The surrounding area has an amazing selection of beautiful villages with excellent food and fantastic looks. Make sure you eat fresh fish when u get there!! The Mani landscape, views and sea are breathtaking. You need a car to fully enjoy the fantastic beaches of Mani and fall in love with its villages. The breakfast was totally fresh, home-made. The owner was making and serving few home made stuff, different each day. The owners were very very nice and pleasant. We will go back again!!

Room Tip: First floor perfect but second floor has better view to the sea.

Everybody knows that when God made Greece he threw all the rocks into the Mani, so, with the exception of nearby sandy Stoupa, everywhere is boulders, rocks, pebbles and more rocks. But the views in the Mani are fabulous and so too that at Elixirion. The nice rooms and terraces are close to the seashore and the sound of lapping waves in the still of the night was such a welcome change for us, being more used to the sound of traffic. Breakfast on Maria's terrace is a wonderful, typical Greek, home cooked special! A marvellous way to start the day. One can also be served on one's own terrace, which we enjoyed on the Sunday. There are lots of interesting walks around and two great tavernas, one near the hotel called Faros and the other a hike away on the otherside of the bay. I imagine that the sea is quite nice and warm to swim in mid June, but we were there in May and only some Russian guests were brave enough to jump in before breakfast in what, from judging their shrieks, was an ice bucket! Of local ineterest are the nearby unique caves at Diros and the Saturday market in Aeropolis, where we bought the famed local honey and olive oil.

Room Tip: all face the sea and the bay...too many large pebbles to be ideal for small kids
