About the owner: About Athina and Aghis
I'm a busy working mum who has always enjoyed my holidays. With two teenage children it's always lovely to get away together and a week in Mani seems to keep me going for months! Agis, my husband, inherited this house which has belonged to his family for more than 150 years. We both took the initiative to branch out and renovate the old house in Gythio and transform it to our own holiday house. As we share our home with holidaymakers from all over the world we take our responsibility seriously to ensure your holiday is second to none and provide a true home from home experience. You'll notice pictures of our family, mirrors, little things that we dear, toys of our children, good quality beds and a kitchen with everything you might need. We kindly ask you to respect all that. We don't use agencies for cleaning and maintenance, but local, friendly people who take pride in ensuring you have a great holiday experience.
Why the Owner Chose Gythion: The house is perfectly located and enjoys being at the central square of the small port of Gythio. Peaceful, relaxing but just a very short walk to the local shops, banks, tavernas, seaside restaurants and local bars. There are plenty of sandy beaches in the area, just 20 minutes drive from Gythio, while the peninsula of Mani with its unique landscape and architecture, Sparta with its ancient history, Mystras and Monemvasia, these rare byzantine cities, the amazing caves of Dyros and mount Taygetos which governs the northern landscape, offer plenty of excitements for everybody; for family groups who need quality time to wind down or time for the children to rest and recuperate, as well as for couples or groups that simply don’t want the cramped conditions often associated with staying in chain hotels. You’ll be sharing the bars and restaurants with the Greek locals as well as other tourists ‘in the know’. Expect a little less English speaking, a lot more value for money and a much quieter night. But most importantly, you’ll be treated as being in your own home since it is ‘Our House in Gythio’ where we spend our summer holidays every year.
