Budget Double with Sea View | Petrino Guesthouse
|地址||Eparchiaki Odos Monemvasias-Neapolis, 23070 Monemvasia, Peloponnese, 希腊|
This Guesthouse is 4 hours away from Athens by car, 90 minutes from Mani and Tyro, 80 minutes from Mistras and 93km from Sparta. It is appropriate for excursions of many days.
Petrino Guesthouse is one of the most beautiful summerlocations we ever visited.
Makis is a very kind, quiet man and helpfull host. The room with the bathroom is very nice and clean. Everyday there is a check-up and several times a week the linen is refreshed. The room has a good working airco and also a big frige to keep cool our drinks and food. We were allowed to take glasses and dishes from the breakfastroom whenever needed. The breakfast is OK, with enough variation.
Absolutely superb is the view from the balcony. It is so more beautifull than one can ever see on a picture. On the balcony is sun in the morning and shadow from noon on. The day through the wide view is changing: all the colours of the sea, the shape of the rock of Monemvasia, the boats, the bay and beaches with the restaurants on the shore, on the left and the right side... the smells reach to the balcony. (One remark: the chairs on the bacony coluld be more comfortable.)
We didn't miss a swimming pool. We don't like spending time just lying near a pool or beach. But just 500 m away from Petrino Guesthouse on the bridge towards Monemvasia-rock are a few platforms with steps (and even a warm shower) where we had wonderfull swimming times in the sea. The water is very clear. We prefer a bit of salt above chloor! And never are these swimming places crowded. Sometimes all sea was ours. From our room we had a view on the swimming place.
In twenty minutes walk from Petrino Guesthouse we arrived at Monemvasia gate. Monemvasia city is an extraordinary place. Still there is no mass tourism. Everywhere there is time for a real friendly contact with the local people. After a few days people know you and are interested in a good conversation or laugh. Once we will go back, same place, same host.
