Respect for the environment and preserving the traditional architecture of the place are the main characteristics of the traditional guesthouse. Stone, wood and metal were used in traditional techniques by local craftsmen, resulting in an inspiring composition of authentic accommodation and local design.
The wooden skeleton of the roof constructed with old Byzantine tiles, the local Mani stone, carved from large blocks, everything was carefully chosen to create this magnificent traditional stone-built guesthouse. The natural materials, colors and characteristic fragrances of the place, refer to past times that reminisce authentic Greek hospitality.
The 2 two-storey houses are furnished with antiquities that have been selectively collected over the years from all over the world. The authentic 19th-century treasure chest, the German bookcase from the Alps, the English vintage wash stand, along with the Persian carpets and French engravings, all contribute to the interior design of exquisite aesthetics and unique atmosphere of Liodentra traditional guesthouse.
Each two-storey house of 135 sq.m. consists of 2 bedrooms to accommodate at least 4 people, 2-3 bathrooms, 2 large living areas with a desk, a balcony with traditional tiles and a large terrace under the metal pergola offering the perfect place for a siesta or dinner under the moonlight.
The feeling of elegance and hospitality are complimented by air conditioning throughout. A fully equipped traditional kitchen (+ NespressoΤΜ), TV and Wi-Fi connection in all rooms of the complex as well as iPod docking stations complete the sense of luxury.
The single storey house is 38 sq.m. and is a favourite with younger family members who were also partly responsible for its design.
All bathrooms are provided with the highest quality natural care products to ensure the best possible care and revitalization of our guests.
