Perfect spot for a quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

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.

This house was unfortunately a big disappointment for us. Indeed it is located in a beautiful location and has an amazing garden but I am afraid that is not enough... The house itself, although clean is fairly old. It would have been nice to at least paint the peeling internal walls. Lack of air conditioning was absolutely unbearable in August!!! If there were at least mosquito nets on doors and windows it would have been possible to leave doors open for air but there are none... Also, in the absence of internal curtains to block the light, the only way to keep the room dark for sleeping is by closing the heavy wooden shutters, hence no air.... We were supposed to stay one week but left the house after one night! We were not reimbursed in any way. Although the information regarding the location on the web was not untrue, I am afraid the description and photos do not reflect the reality. I guess that the fact most photos were of the external surrounding should have made me suspicious...

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for this kind appreciation! The things that you didn't explain in your complaint are the following: - The house never had conditioning air, you just forgot to check that point before booking my house - The house never had mosquito doors and windows nets but, once again, you just forgot to ask me before your booking. Mosquito nets are above beds... - The house never had curtains, but in 4 years of renting you are the first one who are complaining for such a thing - I know you were angry because there was no wi-fi, but you missed to complain about that! My house never had wi-fi and will probably never have... All of these informations are clearly noticed in the Homeway website ref:872676 BUT AS YOU EXPLAIN ME, YOU JUST FORGOT TO READ THEM ! I offered you to come back for FREE for ten days (you just booked 7 days) whenever you want, to have a new experience in my house when the weather is not so hot. And you never replied, why? Please next time, make sure you choose the house that you want, not the one you don't because you could be a little disappointed! And don't forget to go through all the points by reading the whole description. If you can't survive without wi-fi, tv, ice cube machine, air conditioning, curtains and sofitel comfort, my house won't be the one for you. If you prefer wild nature, beautiful sea view, and want to have a new experience in a quiet and authentic place, you are really welcome at home ! PS: I have no private airport!

A Fantastic Holiday Stay

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I visited Gythio earlier this summer and had the most fantastic weeks holiday. The house is set in a big garden (we saw a wild tortoise one night) and the interior is large, with a wonderful light open plan kitchen/dinning room/lounge. The beach is a 10 minute walk away and was very quite throughout the week with the most spectacular views of the mountains. There is a bakery with lovely fresh bread and pastries a 15 minute walk away and all the people were very friendly. The owner was also very helpful before and after our stay.

There are lots of places to see close by, although I would recommed you hire a car as it's all a drive away. Gytheio is a friendly fishing village with a great evening atmosphere for a meal out.

I would definitely recommend a stay at here!

Excellent séjour dans cette maison et point de vue exceptionnel à 360° sur la plage de Mavrovouni !

  • 4 of 5

Excellent séjour dans cette maison bénéficiant d'une vue exceptionnelle sur la mer ! Nous avons profité des différents recoins du jardin, des hamacs pour la sieste et d'une douche extérieure bienvenue, après la plage.

Côte magnifique, particulièrement le Magne exceptionnel - grand moment de notre périple dans le Péloponnèse !

Magnifique endroit , â connaître qui a su garder son authenticité avec une région à visiter

  • 5 of 5

Quel magnifique endroit, cette propriété est au delà de ce que j'avais imaginé en consultant l'annonce.

Le propriétaire a su garder le caractère authentique de la maison de son "ancêtre" en la rénovant de façon fonctionnelle et intelligente pour ne pas être contraignante, d'une propreté parfaite avec tout ce qu'il faut pour passer de vraies vacances de repos et profiter de la mer et de la plage.

Un très grand jardin à la fois sauvage et parfaitement organisé avec des petits coins terrasses et tonnelle , son hamac où suivant son envie on peut profiter des coins d'ombre et de soleil où la mer et les montagnes sont visibles à 180 degré.

Les vélos attendent pour faire un peu de sport avant de prendre une douche dans le jardin face à la mer., un régal des yeux qui ne s'arrête jamais.

Un seul regret , devoir quitter ce lieu si vrai de la Grece dans ce village accueillant où les habitants sont discrets mais serviables. Mais l'espoir d'y revenir est réel.

Il est rare de trouver un tel endroit pour apprécier le vrai caractère d'un pays, dans une région à visiter sans la horde des touristes.

A unique paradise close ...

 Laconia is history, honored earth, the countryside, the mountains and the sea together, his men, his virtue and beauty ... that's all you need to live at least once. This is the paradise that is close to you, which you absolutely must attend ... The Department of Laconia is located south of Greece and continental Europe. Laconia is considered the absolute tourist destination thanks to the shape of the earth, the combination of the mountain and the sea, but also thanks to its rich history, holding his finds of prehistoric years until today. Ancient temples and theaters, monasteries, castles, caves, habitats, mountain routes, beautiful beaches, are just some of the sights of Laconia, which can convince even the most suspicious visitor.

Geography - Demographics - Economy

 To the east, it borders on Messenia and west to Arcadia. The laconic golf on the south side, the golf Messinia west and Myrtoo Sea to the east, alongside Laconia. Sparta, the capital of the department, known for its historic past.

The four provinces of Sparta, Gytheion, Epidaurus Limira (Molai) and Itilo (Areopolis) are the district of Laconia. The area is renowned for its agricultural products but especially for the high quality olive oil, for its citrus fruits (oranges, tangerines, lemons) for vegetables (tomatoes, peppers, eggplants), for its honey and its also wine.

The landscape is a variety with the morphology of the land, which is also visible by large mountains, such as the Taygetos (with the highest tip of the Peloponnese: 2. 407m and 961m 1. Parnona ) by the rocky coasts of Mani, the plain of Eurotas and long sandy beaches southeast of Laconia. The climate is mostly Mediterranean with some differentiation by regions. Summers are warm with a bit of freshness in the hills, mild autumns, winters with rain and a unique landscape in spring.

The bounty of nature meets historical depth

 Visitors will be fascinated by the natural and cultural wealth, but also by the many museums with monuments of the ancient period, Byzantine and modern.

The legendary Sparta, Mistra "imperial grandeur", Monemvasia with its castle, Gytheion "the land of the Gods" Elafonissos "island of white sand," the unique beauty of Mani, Neapolis "a distant city," and Evrota its fertile valley, the picturesque villages of Taygetos and Parnona, Greek fiord to Geraka and romantic amphitheater Kiparissi are only the beginning of an unforgettable journey that has just begun ...!
