Walk around and explore marked trails, accompanied by the owners, qualified guides or on your own, starting from your place of stay or within 10 km.

Drosopigi is a very picturesque and authentic village, with only 30 habitants during winter time, but it is livelier in the season.

A small road bypasses the village for a nice walk (1/2 hour).
The interesting Panagitsa church with frescoes from 1863 and the old olive press in the village can be visited (key with the owner).
For fans, hike to the top of the hill at 800 meters (1h30)

Githio City, east gate of Mani, is the starting point of the visit to Laconian Mani, wander through the old town and enjoy fresh fish along the harbor in one of the many taverns.

Wonder around Areopoli, the quiet town with the stone paved roads, the small shops that offer traditional arts and crafts, the churches and the Byzantine chapels.

Visit the amazing cave of Diros, which is among the most impressive natural beautiful sites of Greece. A pleasant beach with white pebbles can also be found nearby.

Do not omit to visit Gerolimenas, a small fishing village hidden in a rocky gulf with a pebbly beach and the magical Limeni with its beautiful blue water.

Visit the traditional renovated village Vathia and further along the sandy beach of Marmari.

You will also find beautiful sandy beaches Skoutari (nearest to the guesthouse at 10km), Mavrovouni, Vathi and Kamares.

All around, you can admire the impressive towers of Mani which arise here and there and overlook the sea, from the top of high rocks.
