Laconia is a prefecture on mainland Greece which offers quiet and relaxing holidays in a number of historic towns including Sparta, the region's capital.

It is a popular and pleasant region offering a taste of the "real Greece" with its citrus groves, olive trees and ancient history. The mountains offer hilly walking trails and caves with stalactites while the coast offers small bays and secluded havens with endless stretches of sand and crystal clear waters. There are a host of activities, sights and things to do when renting a Laconia villa or holiday rental.

The ruined palace is still quite impressive and the Monembassia Gateway and Lascaris Mansion reflect the wealth  of a former era.

Fantastic holiday, wonderful hosts....

5 of 5
Villa Alti is a real gem of a find. The villa is spacious and better equipped than any self catering villa I have stayed in. It is spotlessly clean. The views from both terraces are stunning and the easy access to the beach at the end of the path from the garden make it so easy to enjoy. The beach is secluded and peaceful, we were usually on our own. With the exception of being joined by Enzo, the lovely family dog! Chrissa and Tina are fantastic hosts and really want you to get the most out of your stay, including a tour to private beaches and other places of interest. They were so generous with their homegrown food from the garden- fresh apricots, local honey, fresh cucumber and tomatoes. Chrissa really spoilt us with her home cooking too, spinach and feta pie, biscuits, jam and cake! Porto Heli has all you need from a local town, a good supermarket and a variety of restaurants, coffee shops, pharmacies etc. We felt this was a really beautiful part of the world and made so much better with Chrissa and Tina's enthusiasm!

Lovely well equipped apartment

5 of 5
Jayne is an excellent host and communication with her was first class. The apartment is located five minutes from a beach (called Paradise!) and a taverna and also a ten minute walk to the delightful Old Harbour with many tavernas to suit all budgets. The apartment is extremely well equipped and has everything you would need for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.
