There are plenty of outdoor tables and chairs and a greek style bbq. The garden has a lemon, orange and fig trees where you can help yourself to the fruits. There are large bowls for handwashing and plenty of lines for drying. There is an internet cafe in the small Fishing harbour and most of the bars in Monemvasia offer free WI-FI if you bring your own laptop. There are fans for the summer months, and heaters for the winters. We have also just installed AC for the heatwaves! There are beaches all along the coast, and the closest is a secluded bay 10 minutes walk from the house. At Pori beach you will find a nice taverna with tables under trees offering delicious greek food. You can also swim at Kokoula, a protected bay within the sea with massive rocks to jump off. My family have owned this cottage for over 30 years and love it and hope you will enjoy your stay.

The best time to come to Greece is during the months of April to October. July and August is extremely hot . The winter months can be quite pleasant with mild temperatures! Monmvasia is a spectacular place to experience Greek Easter.

Location description from owner

The Laconia Region

The Peloponnese hangs like a large leaf from the stem of the Corinthian Isthmus, the Peloponnese has also been called Morea, which means mulberry leaf.

This slight botanical variance is nothing compared to the bewildering variety of imposing ruins, situated in equally varied and beautiful scenery—massive mountains covered with low evergreen, oak, and pines surround coastal valleys and loom above rocky shores and sandy beaches.

The perfect time to visit is between October to November and April to July. August tends to be very hot.

Monemvasia

Avia Kyriaki is situated 1.5km from Monemvasia and is home to a farming community who have lived in the area for over 200 years. The area is popular with the Greeks and a few European tourists.

The area offers great mountain walks where you can collect wild mountain tea, oregano and sage. There are many beaches, both sandy and pebbly. Pori beach has some of the most beautiful stones in the world and has a beach bar in the summer. It is also fun to swim off the rocks at Kokoula across the causeway towards Monemvasia.

The rock of Monemvasia has a causeway to approach it. For centuries Monemvasia has been a shelter from siege. First inhabited by people from around Lakonia in the 6th century AD seeking refuge from Arab, Slav and Frankish invaders, Monemvasia flourished under the Byzantines, but was later occupied in turn by the Venetians and the Turks until Greek independence in 1821.

Today Monemvasia has several tavernas and bars to enjoy excellent local food and wine. It is also home to artists and many churches and about 150 people live there.

In the port you will find tavernas, shops, bars, internet cafe, bank with cash point, Lakakis supermarket, green grocer, butcher, doctors surgery police station, car/bike hire and travel agents. Every Saturday a fruit and vegetable market comes to the port.

Through out the year Festivals are celebrated in the Churches in Monemvasia.

“The perfect hideaway”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2012

A bit of context: I was looking for somewhere to retreat from the madness of English life for a couple of weeks to switch off, read and write, and generally not have anything to do with the outside world. This little cottage in a small village turned out to be just the place. While it is a long way from any airport (you'll need a car to get there) once you reach the village everything you will need is within reasonable walking distance. There is the choice of two beaches, one large and sandy, the other small, almost secret, and pebbly, both within ten minutes walk. The nearby town of Gefira (15 mins walk, 3 mins drive) has several supermarkets, plus bakeries, butchers, bars and cafes. Across the causeway, the walled village of Monemvasia has more tourist facilities and is definitely worth a visit, plus has some good restaurants. The cottage itself is well equipped and functional, with a compact kitchen and bathroom, dedicated bedroom and larger living room which can be used as a bedroom. The highlight is the vine-draped terrace outside the front door, which overlooks the village square and gives a view to the sea beyond. This was where I spent most of my time, and I often wish I was back there. In the daytime it is well shaded from the sun, and if the timing is right you can watch the moon rise over the sea in the evening while dining on the terrace. Having visited in October, I can only guess how much busier things are during the high season, but for me it was perfect - everything was still open, but there were very few other tourists around. An hour or so of driving took me over the mountains to the island of Elafonosi, which is definitely worth a visit for its long sandy beaches, which were deserted when I was there. I have no doubt I will be considering going back to this cottage when I next need to really get away from it all.

“A Traditional Greek Holiday House With Wonderful Views and Lots To Do!”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2011

What a great holiday we had! The views from the vernanda are spectacular; day and night. Meals outside on the patio prepared in the original stone fire place in the garden. A 5 minute trip to Monenmvasia on the scooter to stock up on supplies of the local beer, Mythos. A local beach is a lazy walk away from the house, with umbrellas, a bar, and a sandy beach - just one way to spend the day. We also trundled down to Monemnvasia for cafe life, browsing the shops and swimming by the causeway - which leads to the island town of Monemnvasia. Wine tasting in Byron's bar in Monemnvasia was particularly memorable as were some of the views from the local restaurants there, overlooking the sea towards the Greek mainland. Our village itself is 100% Greek owned and the owners (farmers, families and other locals) are helpful, cheerful and generous! The accommodation is clean, airy and homely; most of the time we spent chilling on the extensive veranda, eating, drinking, listening to music- or just simply enjoying the view.
