Arranged to meet at local hotel to pick up keys and was taken to the house and shown round. Stunning views from the terrace which surrounds the house on three sides. We were here late September when there had been no rain for a long time and the garden was very dry and a little brown but really enjoyed the hammock under the biggest tree. The sea was warm and the long sandy beach at Mavrovoni is only a few minutes walk away. Not entirely sure where photo 23 out of 24 on website is but this is not Mavrovoni or Gythio although the walk to the beach is downhill the rest of the village is at the same level as the house. Could buy fresh bread and food in the village and there is a choice of tavernas to eat out at where we were well looked after. Great fish to be had in Gythio.
We spent a couple of days exploring the Mani further south and found some lovely coves and beaches to swim and enjoyed driving up into the mountains on some hair raising roads but there was almost no traffic and it was well worth it for the views.
The house is well equipped and feels like a family home with maps, games and even a telescope for moon gazing. Shower looks newly installed and is particularly good.
We had a lovely stay in this beautiful and quite remote clifftop cottage. The house is comfy and feels loved and lived-in, and is well equipped. The garden is wonderful - we kept discovering new paths through the plants or down to the beach, and it was great to swim in transparent sea from our own bridge. We enjoyed reading 'The Monument' to get the dramatic story of the cottage, but also felt the more tranquil presence of Christopher and Riri Howse who lived here for many years.
This is a perfect place for a getaway holiday - incredibly beautiful at all times of day. We enjoyed driving 'the Mule' to get to the main road, and found interesting places to walk and swim locally, although this does not feel like a tourist area. The history of The Mani is interesting.
Anne and Amos were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
