Spacious, elegant and authentic, the apartment is part of a famous mansion with stone arches, monastery-style dining room, impressive marble floors, 5 terraces and a breath-taking sea-view. Fully renovated, with all the modern amenities you may need for a comfortable stay, this guest house offers an original blend – beautiful seaside, history, authenticity and comfort.

Monemvasia is one of the most remarkable places in Greece. It has maintained its ancient beauty, authenticity and atmosphere with its medieval walls and winding cobbled streets. The narrow passages and arches, distinctive architecture, old houses and turrets give the impression of a medieval fairytale. Allow your imagination to travel back to the time of pirates and knights, as you wander around its streets or visit the house of the famous Greek Poet Yiannis Ritsos (which is about a 150 min from our guesthouse). You can walk to the lively central square with the old cannon where Byzantines, Venetians, Franks, Crusaders in turn made their fortunes.
Try the local, handmade pasta (gong), almond and Saito (fried pies with cheese). Enjoy your dinner inside the city walls at ‘Matoula’ - a lovely restaurant in the shadow of the rock, close to the busy street after the main gate. It serves delicious dishes, appetizers and good wine. For your evening entertainment, there are the classic bars of the Castle which remain open until late. You can have a cup of coffee at a sunlit café in the square, while enjoying the fragrant sea air, views to the deep blue waters of the Aegean and the relaxing atmosphere.
