Gythion castle description

An authentic, fully furnished, recently renovated castle with great views

Around 2 centuries ago, our grandparents decided to build a castle for their winter stays and to protect themselves from enemies, from the war. On the ground floor you can find the olive press that the residents had in order to make their olive oil.

Now and years later the stone house is ready to invite you in and enjoy a great holiday. The renovation took into consideration the traditional character of the castle keeping it unspoiled, while adding some modern touches. The materials used are mainly the local stone and wood. The castle is fully equipped with electrical appliances.

There are two bedrooms. In addition to 1 double and 4 single beds in these bedrooms, 2 more sofa beds are provided in the living room for comfortable sleep.

It is a great place to start from in order to explore the unique beauties of authentic Greece all around the year Appropriate both in the cool and cozy Greek winter till the hot summer.
There is not actually a better period to visit, since every session has something unique to provide.

Staying in a castle like this will definitely make you feel like living centuries ago. You are given the opportunity to spend time traveling around Peloponnese, from the famous Sparta, land of Leonidas and the brave 300, to cape Matapa, where the gates of Ades were supposed to be.

Also, you are able to travel around the coasts of Peloponnese and enjoy the famous Greek sun and sky on beaches like Gerolimenas. Gerolimenas is, also, a great place to taste traditional Greek food and maybe have a drink before you come back to the castle and relax with a glass of wine next to the fireplace.

Come to us to explore the unspoiled nature of Greece and relax, swim, cycle, breath some fresh air or do some shopping around the south of Greece!

Children under 8 stay for free!

Close to the property is a historical church, basketball ground and a small playground, all within walking distance.

We can give you any advice concerning your sightseeing or anything you may need. Please, do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

Before coming back home at noon, have some fresh fish next to the coast line.Try water sports. Travel along the coast of Cape Matapan and enjoy each single one of the unique beaches -AUTUMN : Warm climate.Maybe Hot until November... Wake up in the morning and have a cup of coffee in the terrace. Walk in the olives grooves, which are full of bloom and discover the unique beauties they offer. Go hunting. Collect your own Greek olives from our fields. Probably, even go swimming. Visit the villages around, some of which are ruined, of special beauty. -WINTER : Cool and cozy climate. if you are brave, you dive in the crystal clear Mediterranean water. Special experience.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Castle:
