Stunning, rustic yet modern. This villa is tucked away uphill on a remote mountain surrounded by olive trees and with spectacular sea views.
Come & unwind, relax in privacy by the pool and listen to the sound of the birds and the bells of the goats
This unique villa is built in simple Mani (stone) style, around 250 sq, built around 1770 with its wood fire oven intact and as the house is in a tranquil place far way from anything else, cooking is a must here! This super kitchen serves as a must for quiet evenings in with lots of wine, good food, board gams and great friends. The bedrooms all have en suite bathrooms (the master bath tub/rain shower). The outdoor dining is perfect for the summer or huddled by the fire in the winter! Areopoli town is 15 minutes away and is a must see with beautiful cafes, taverns and small bars.
We have designed this property as a hideaway/getaway retreat in a mountain in the middle of tranquility! All you can hear is the sound of the birds and the bells of the goats nearby. The property is really private and there are no other properties near it. The views in front of the sea and the vast mountains behind add contrast. The kitchen is phenomenal for cooking and hanging out with friends and the fireplace in the winter with wine and board games is also perfect. The summer and winter have incredible hikes you can choose from, water sports, caves, cycling, and of course tavernas serving fresh fish and Greek village metas cooked in traditional pots!
I spend my time between Mani - Athens - Mykonos and when it all gets a little too crazy I hide out here, sleep, cook, read my favourite books and go in to the town to see my local buddies. This place is truly unique and I doubt you will be in any way disappointed just be aware that this is one of the most isolated places in the world and renowned for relaxation, healthy hikes and good food.
Let me know if you need local tips as I am always happy to help!!!!
A bit of history for you!!!
The Mani, at the tip of Greece's—and Europe's—southernmost promontory, is one of the most isolated regions of the world. Cut off from the rest of the country by the towering range of the Taygetus and hemmed in by the Aegean and Ionian seas, it is a land where the past is still very much a part of its people's daily lives. The scenery is dazzling in a stark and powerful sense. Rocky hillsides with fascinating shapes descend to caves, jewel-shining seas and quiet enclaves. Mani stretches from Gythio to Cape Tainaro the mythical entrance to the underworld. It is a wild landscape and maybe nowhere in Greece does a region seem so close to its medieval past.
★Note on total cost and payment★
I am often asked what the total cost will be. When you make an inquiry, airbnb calculates the total price for you including any extras, such as fees, based on your travel dates and the amount of people you are traveling with. Airbnb charges guests a booking fee that varies in percentage and I have no information about how they determine it so I cannot give you an accurate total cost.
★Airbnb handles all payments and once you make a reservation, they hold the money and do not release it to hosts until a day after the guest arrives. The nightly rate for the villa can vary by season, demand and availability and is shown in the calendar.★
★ The most important thing is to treat the villa the same way you would treat a friend's home that you are visiting★
★Airbnb offers travelers an amazing opportunity to stay in fantastic homes which can offer more space then the presidential suites at luxury hotels without costing thousands of dollars a night! Hosts place a lot of trust in their guests to treat their places as homes and not hotel rooms.★
Zugang für Gäste
Guest access is throughout this private villa, except the staff room at the back of the house and the laundry room which is taken care of by staff only.
