We stayed at Economou Mansion earlier this month with two friends from the UK and neither of us had ever stayed there before so didn't really know what to expect. I have to say this was such a wonderful surprise. The hotel is so charming with two feet thick walls and period furniture. It is right across from the ocean and about a 10 minute stroll from the marina where all the boats come in, including the ferries.
The floors leading up to and inside the Mansion are made of small rocks in different designs.
There is a walled garden and in there live three tortoises of varying size and we enjoyed visiting them every day with a piece of fruit from breakfast.
Speaking of breakfast; this was served every day in another part of the garden around the pool by a wonderful man named Manos. Every day it was a little different but included a warm dish, cold cuts, cheese, fruit, yoghurt, bread and always something sweet to follow. I have had breakfast at many places but this was one of the best.
The staff are so friendly; we were picked up and taken to the hotel from the ferry and then returned to the ferry on our last day on Spetses before leaving for Poros. The whole experience could not have been better.
I would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Spetses, you will not be disappointed.
