“A hidden gem, comfort, incredible views, peace ........ A piece of real Greece.”

Second visit to lovely Lemon and Lime. If you want something other than a new build villa this could be for you. 200 year old traditional Greek cottage hidden away in the small village of Pyrgos. A place to relax, read, sip G and T, cool off in the tub and to take in the 360 views. Yes a car is needed but within 10 minutes drive you have access to the world of beaches, bars and restaurants. Going up the mountain there are plenty of villages and restaurants too. We shall definitely be going again. Thank you Keith and Theresa.

“Lovely mountain village house with great views down to the coast”
Reviewed 9 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Adding to previous post..... The house was very well-appointed but the mountain village location does mean that a car is essential and the pool is a plunge pool and unheated. One of our group had some mobility issues and the house has both internal and external steps which may not be ideal for some. The best part was watching the sun go down from the terrace.every night - wonderful.

“A gem: sample the best of Mani life from the quiet of a hillside village.”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Clean, bright and tastefully furnished, this three bed villa overlooking the coast north of Stoupa enjoys stunning sunsets. Its heart of village location at Pyrgos ensures a genuine Mani feel from which one can make forays down to the coast from Stoupa or uphill to sample good fare and hospitality at mountain restaurants. We appreciated the helpful recommendations of Keith the owner. Neighbours were friendly and rarely seen; it was good to have Richard and Clare on hand in case of need.
We struck out south of Areopoli to see the mani village of Vathia and swim at Portu Caiyo, 1h30 each way but worth it as this area is even less developed. Kardamyli an artist haven.

“Delightful place to stay in the Mani”

We have just returned from a lovely week staying in Lemon and Lime Cottage along with our Greek friends (4 persons in all). Pyrgos is easy to find from the directions (we flew into Athens, then spent 4 leisurely days in the capital and driving down via Nafplion and Sparti, with plenty of interesting stops along the way - the roads are twisty but in excellent condition and the traffic is minimal - a wonderful change from the UK!... We returned via the toll-road from Kalamata - new, fast, empty and easy!). The cottage is lovely, as is Pyrgos - a quaint little village, with excellent views and a very nice little kafeneion - ideal for an early-evening drink... We were happy to relax on the terrace and BBQ in the evenings, but also enjoyed the swimming at Kardamyli (the best beach - Ritsa, which is stony - is just past the village going north - also a great taverna there under the trees...). Also liked Phoneas between Stoupa and Kardamyli. Had a great day driving down to the tip of the inner Mani - a very different landscape... Good places to eat everywhere - highly recommend the taverna run by the neighbours (with the burnt-out chimney) up in Saidona, and the taverna in the square in Kastania. All-in-all a perfect location to relax, but with plenty of things to do as well, and just outstanding sunsets... Highly recommended!
