Happy Bargain Friday! A cozy, traditional stone house in the mountain village of Ambelonia, in Pelloponnese, Greece!
This property is so warm, authentic, and beautiful. I love the traditional interior. The hearthstone in the living room is wonderful, and the kitchen with the ancient wooden beams adds so much character to the home. Even better, the garden is home to an outdoor bread oven and over 20 mature fruit trees.

Built on the imaginary crossroads of three prefectures, Arcadia, Ilia and Messinia, Ambeliona is a traditional mountain village surrounded by chestnut forests and countless natural springs.

relive. Once a week a baker and a green-grocer passes by and you can buy local produce. The Abeliona retreat hotel within walking distance offers a restaurant with excellent cuisine.
