Happy Tuesday! This Greek villa is pretty much perfect. I would probably spend all of my time sitting outside, soaking up the views, day after day – when I wasn’t at the beach that is!
Per the listing, the villa is located in a protected village in the rugged hills above Kardamili, near a popular hiking trail where you can see some pretty old churches and monasteries built in the 1600s, full of beautiful old frescoes. Also – the villa is run on full solar power! Very eco-friendly and cool!
Per this blog post, the area sounds like utopia:
We’ve landed in Greek heaven. One of those idyllic places you never want to leave. It doesn’t happen very often in our travels. Most places I enjoy for the time we are there and then I’m ready to move on, but the gateway to the Mani Peninsula seems to have it all – sea views, magical sunsets, hiking, a laid-back atmosphere and of course great food.
I don’t think I could ask for anything more!
