Photos and Description of this holiday cottage in Githio - Wellanidia

Idyllic holiday home with double and single bed, 10 minute walk to the beach

Idyllic holiday home with double and single bed, 10 minute walk to the beach

This charming little house is open plan with organically shaped stone walls and floors, and has a slightly raised sleeping area. The quaint bathroom has a bathtub, while outside at the back there is a private terrace with an open air shower. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering, and there is a table for al fresco dining under the shade of the huge old oak tree. Hammocks swing from the branches, offering the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful sea views out towards the island of Kythira.

For those who want to enjoy a creative holiday, there is the opportunity to attend a ceramics seminar in the garden workshop, and leave for home with your own home-made souvenir!

The beach in Skoutari is ideal for young children as it is sandy and the water is very shallow. For more adventurous swimmers there is also excellent snorkelling around the rocks and hidden coves with beautiful pebbles of various colours.

There are various churches to visit around Skoutari, one of which is the abandoned monastery of 'Ag. Sotiras', the Church of the Redeemer, which is reached by following a herb-scented path through ancient olive groves. If you prefer more than just the solitary beauty of this place, then on 6 August, this church opens its doors to celebrate its saint’s day.

On a culinary note, you can enjoy delicious lamb chops while gazing out over the breathtaking view from Nicoletta’s tavern on nearby hilltop Drosopigi, . A few miles in the opposite direction in Ageranos, Vasilis and Marie-José offer unusual dutch/greek cuisine. Hearty greek home cooking can be enjoyed at Maria’s in Vathi. You can try excellent and affordable fish at Gialos on Mavrovouni beach, and even in Skoutari there are two simple fish tavernas, whose unmissable special is 'Garides Saganaki' (king prawns in tomato and feta cheese).

Skoutari is a charming fishing village in the legendary Mani / South Peloponnese. The golden sandy beach is only 10 minutes walk from the cottage and there are views north to the majestic Taygetos mountain range. The drinking water comes from a nearby spring. There is basic shopping in the village, and bread is delivered free. For more extensive shopping you can drive 15kms in either direction to Gythio or Areopolis.

From here you can make excursions to the largest sea caves in Europe, just near Pirgos Dirou; Gythion's offshore island 'Kranai', famous for its legend of Paris and Helen; or further afield the rocky outpost 'Monemvasia', with its winding streets and its acropolis. Or for the more active, there is some of the best windsurfing in Greece off the beach of Mavrouvouni.

About Angelika Fritzsche

Hello my dear guests! Now let me tell you something about myself... please check my website

All my life stands under the star of inspiration and creating ceramic items.

Angelika Fritzsche purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Angelika Fritzsche chose Laconia

Wellanidia the little stonecottage under the old a lot of love for details it was built in a handicraft way and changed over the years like the tree amazed and trapped by these walls which were raised even out of old church stones. Skoutari I found when I came here first time for holidaysto the Peloponnese 1987. I travelled all around the peninsula but here in Skoutari in the end I was sitting with lovely 23 years old on the light sand beach watching the turquoise water with tears in my eyes because I had to leave again for germany.....

What makes this cottage unique

Your holidays in the middle of nature gives you a longlasting feeling of relaxation which you take home with you.

Fantastisch

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschönes kleines Ferienhaus (Anbau zum Anwesen von Angelika Fritsche). Herrliche Lage mit Blick auf die Bucht von Skoutari, liebevoll und stilecht eingerichtet mit allem was man braucht.

Die Vermieterin ist sehr freundlich, zurückhaltend aber immer ansprechbar wenn es um Tipps für Ausflüge oder Restaurants geht. Sie betreibt eine Töpferwerkstatt und bietet Kurse an.

Skoutari ist wunderschön, das Meer glasklar mit herrlichen Stränden und die Landschaft der Mani eignet sich für Wanderungen und erlebnisreiche Ausflüge.

Ein ruhiger Ort zum entspannen und genießen. Absolut empfehlenswert!

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für die traumhafte Bewertung liebe Sandra und Jochen! Zwei Gäste wie man sich sie nur wünschen kann....das großzügige "Auffüllen" erlebe ich eher selten...DANKE! Nur zu erwähnen, dass das Cottage (völlig autonom) zuerst da war und mein Haus später unterhalb errichtet wurde. Beide Gebäude verbindet eine freistehende hohe Mauer mit Durchgang, die den manchmal starken Westwind abbremst.

Wir haben super schöne 8 Nächte in dem kleinen Bungalow verbracht. Es fehlte uns an nichts.

Idylle unter Steineiche

  • 5 of 5

Von der ersten Minuten an haben wir uns in dem kleinen Haus super wohl gefühlt.

Es ist alles so wie in der Beschreibung und besser. Die Dusche schön heiß, das Bett ist gemütlich, Zudecken, wie wir Deutschen das gewöhnt sind, viele duftende Handtücher, ein kleiner Ofen, den wir leider nie ausprobiert haben, scharfe Messer und gute Pfannen... was will man mehr. Alles ist geschmackvoll und ganz individuell eingerichtet ... nicht die abgezählte Allerweltsausstattung mit Plastikmöbeln.

Die Vermieterin ist super nett und kann einem viele Tipps geben.

Skoutari hat den schönsten Strand in der Umgebung, man kann ihn in 15-20 Minuten zu Fuß erreichen und es gibt dort sogar Schatten. Wir hatten eine wunderbare MaiWoche, auch wenn das Wetter relativ frisch und feucht war.

Idyllisches Steinhäusel

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren schon mehrmals bei Angelika in ihrem "Wellanidia"-Steinhäuschen und haben uns jedes Mal sehr wohl gefühlt.

Das Häuschen ist ganz liebevoll eingerichtet, die Terrasse einfach super und wer im Urlaub gern mal auf den Fernseher oder den Touri-Rummel verzichten kann, ist dort

bestens aufgehoben. Es ist einfach himmlisch und man kann super entspannen.

Zum feinsten Sandstrand muss man ein Stückchen laufen oder man fährt mit dem Auto, so wie wir es immer getan haben. Ausflüge kann man dort jede Menge unternehmen.

Es gibt sehr viel zu sehen. Es lohnt sich auf alle Fälle, bei Angelika Urlaub zu machen. Man wird es nicht bereuen.

Angelika besitzt jetzt auch ein Keramiklädchen, wo es sich zu stöbern lohnt und

wer Lust hat, kann sich auch selbst beim Töpfern ausprobieren.

Wir werden uns wiedersehen, Angelika.

Viele Grüße

Thomas und Cerstin

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank! "ein Stückchen Laufen" heißt im Moment ca. 15min, denn der Pfad durch die Felder ist leider nicht gemäht und man muß sich durch hüfthohes Gras kämpfen ;) Aber "außen rum" am Friedhof vorbei kann man schön zum Strand spazieren...aber der Rückweg ist teilweise steil! Viele liebe Grüße und noch einen schönen (nicht zu heißen!!) deutschen Sommer! Angelika

A wonderful place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this tiny cottage for five days and it is a wonderful place to relax! Being at this cottage gives you a feeling of freedom and everthing you need is provided. The cottage is clean, well maintained and has a very comfortable double bed! The area is very peaceful.

As soon as you sit at the terrace, a few cats will keep you company.

A bakery and a greengrocer are a few kilometres away, if you need more specific groceries there are supermarkets in Githio, some 20 kilometres away.

We really recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to relax.

Dear Angelika, thank you for your hospitality, good services and letting us stay in your cottage. We are really sorry that we did not had a chance to say goodbye. But who knows, maybe we will meet again in the future as we had such a pleasant stay in your Hänsl und Gretl house!

wunderschöner Ort zum Verweilen

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren (leider nur) 5 Tage in dem hübschen Steinhäuschen und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Ferienwohnung ist mit sehr viel Liebe ins Detail gestaltet und man findet wirklich alles, was man braucht bzw. doch vergessen hat, mitzunehmen. Die Lage ist wie beschrieben sehr schön und man hat viele Ausflugsmöglichkeiten. Man sollte sich Angelikas Tipps zu Herzen nehmen und hier und da mal in eine von ihr vorgeschlagenen Tavernen gehen..immer super leckeres Essen und liebe Leute.

Nochmals lieben Dank an dich, Angelika! Wir kommen wieder :)
