About the castle:

An authentic, fully furnished, just recently renovated traditional castle with great views.

Around 2 centuries ago, our grandparents decided to build a castle for their winter stays and to protect themselves from rivalries.

On the ground floor you can find the olive press that our family owned to provide the residents of the nearby villages their olive oil.

The stone house untouched by the years is ready to accommodate you, your family and friends to enjoy unique holidays.
The renovation took into consideration the traditional character of the castle keeping it unspoiled, while adding some modern touches. The materials used are mainly the local stone and wood. The castle is fully equipped with electrical appliances and other amenities in order to make your stay comfortable.

We were here again for a week, after the great time spent in this great property last August (a week too), and we really felt as at home. The house is placed in a Mani's traditional tower, surrounded by a garden with olive and almond trees and equipped with a very large veranda at garden level, where is really great...

About the neighbourhood
The Lakonia / Mani area

Mani is a wide geographic segment of Lakonia, starting from the town of Gytheio and all the way south to the end of Cape Tainaro. Mani is well known of the friendly local people. Tourist wise it has not been fully developed, keeping its main attributes and origin untouched. Mani is a special place of tranquillity and tradition. The best place to be if you want to enjoy countryside and crystal clear seas!

Paggia is a small village right in the heart of Mani, situated within a basin amongst two small hills. It has the capacity to maintain relatively cooler temperature especially in the summer. In many parts of the castle you will experience the complete lack of high temperatures due to the natural insulation that the stone walls provide.
