The location is extremely convenient as it is close to the beach and has lovely mountainous views. The cottage is surrounded by a truly lovely garden and has balconies for outdoor eating any time of the day. It is a lovely family space with comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms.

This beautiful stone house is private and secluded with stunning views over the surrounding countryside to the sea. The garden is full of flowers and we particularly enjoyed eating on the pretty patios. Elissavet is a friendly and informative host. I would really recommend visiting Monemvasia ( castle and walled town on an island linked by a causeway), and driving...

Getting around
The best way to get around the sights, shopping and moving to the beaches and tavernas is to use your own car. Many travellers walk down to the beach and do a lot of trekking all around the area which is beautiful, pure and gorgeous. An ideal area for walking, bird watching because of the rare species.
Breath taking views from everywhere in the house abd around it. Towers and chapels, olive fields and wild vegetation attrack the eye of a photographer.
Two bicycles also wait at the cellar to travel you around for a fascinating tour.
