The villas

The villas are based at the location Soukidia (“small fig trees”) just above the old port of Karovastasi (literally “The boat stop”) which served the cliff top local town of Oitylo. Here you are in the epicentre of the beautiful and fascinating Mani peninsula.


The villas are built in the traditional Maniat manner of local stone masonry and incorporate every modern convenience. They bear the names of medieval heroines. The eastern one, that of Filanthe, the romantic Frankish baroness of the castle of Creve Coeur in the central Peloponnese, while the western that of the legendary Byzantine empress Theofano.


Each villa has three double bedrooms with en-suite facilities incorporating separate WC for each bedroom, a lounge, dining room, fully equipped kitchen and a roomy living space. From spring 2013 Theofano benefits from a splendid spacious outdoor private piscine (with jacuzzi jets and opposing swimming) overlooking the scenery over the Bay of Oitylo. Theofano advantages also from a very nice steam room where fans of the oriental “Hamam” can relax and steam away their worries, aches and pains. The playroom of Theofano is equipped with a table tennis.


Pertaining to the view from the villas, we’re confident that relaxed with the drink of your choice at the south facing verandas, you will experience some unforgettable sunsets overlooking the wide sweep of the Bay of Oitylo. You will feel as having the world under your feet while taking full advantage of the villas’ ultimate privacy. It’s a magical place to unwind and enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.
