Gorgeous flat on the 1st floor of a private stone building with beautiful sea views at one of the nicest areas in southern Greece! Everything from the restoration to the decoration and furniture, the stunning atrium area, this place is truly what we call unique! A must stay-at property.

The space

(airco in master bedroom, ceiling fans in the other two bedrooms)
Gythio was the seaport of Sparta, in ancient Greece. It lies in the South Peloponnese and now forms a picturesque lively little harbor town. Most of its houses are two or three storey neo-classical mansions, stuck to the steep side of Mount Koumaros.

The owner undertook the complete re-building of a two storey semi-detached early 20th century mansion which was built on the turn of the century.Lengthy plans were made to keep its Grade II listed exterior whilst creating a more modern and united feel inside. As the top (North) side was built on a steep slope and the entrance was on the street, creativity had to be taken to new levels to design an outdoor space where light could infiltrate the living areas. A further challenge was the functionality: the owners wanted to create a private space for themselves in the upstairs main family unit where the view faces a picturesque small island, where myth has it Paris famously eloped with Helen of Troy. This allowed it to “play” with the two storey levels. By raising the ceiling it gave the main living area an exposed truss work and roof rafters enhancing the airiness, spaciousness and thus allowing it to create various levels to fit these functional specifications.

The subsequent architectural results were phenomenal. The independent entrance to the main family unit was created in the form of a large entrance living space, including the living room, the dining room, a balcony and a high quality open kitchen and pantry. This open space extends to a surprising 360 degree atrium lying in the middle of the area, viewed and accessed from all areas of the house. This amazing centerpiece not only allows light to be spread throughout the house but can also be used for al-fresco dining and relaxing outdoors whilst compensating the need for any further outdoor garden.

Additionally an independent private suite with its own library space, wooden flooring and private balcony was created on a raised level. An additional two bedrooms were formed on a slightly lowered level, below the suite.

A lot of charm was used to make this home really stand out. A fascinating mix of Italian designer and Greek furniture, Middle Eastern, Brazilian and African artifacts, custom made wooden bookcases, custom made steel shelving, seating and fitted bookcases, amidst world renowned sculptures, ceramics and paintings, turns this blend of worldwide culture into something surprisingly grounded but homely. It seems every corner you turn to tells its own story.

The apt is simply stunning and anyone who appreciates design, attention to detail and good taste will simply love this property. Although we found Gythios a little quiet, the apartments made up for this and we loved staying here. Highly recommend - even if a little expensive.

Beautiful and historic traditional home in the Gytheio town of the Peloponnese. The view from the east facing balconies is just stunning and nicely shady in the afternoons. At the same time the home is recently and beautifully renovated and very well equipped with a baby pack and play, children's toys, a spacious fridge, a luxurious kitchen, and interesting art and sculptures. This is a very neat, historical and beautifully renovated home.

This gorgeous flat is absolutely perfect - even better than the pictures!! The view from the flat is beautiful - unobstructed water views, many windows, two balconies and a beautiful courtyard inside of the flat. The kitchen has all of the modern amenities you could need including a huge refrigerator and dishwasher. We absolutely loved staying here and will miss eating breakfast on the beautiful balcony and sleeping in the super comfy bed. The hosts were SO lovely and an absolute pleasure to communicate with. They went above and beyond in all regards and especially in accommodating our one year old daughter. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough.

Alex & Maria User ProfileAlex & Maria is a superhost.

Alex is Greek, US educated, romantic by nature, civil engineer by profession! Really social, always open to meet new people and cultures and he truly believes we all have more in common than not. He is a constant dreamer but yet very pragmatist.
Maria is Greek, from the gorgeous island of Crete, she is a civil engineer as well, and works with Alex in their design and construction company. She is a caring person and likes to get things done well and in detail.

We love travelling all over the world to meet old school friends and make new ones. We are social in the the original way, we just like being with people and around people. Be it hanging out, going out to dinners and coffee shops, we just enjoy it. We do less (for) now than we were used to, since we have TWO lovely daughters to drive us crazy!!!

We have started a rentals company, TopHouzzing Properties, especially for dealing with our properties, and / or friends and others we have started managing for. We truly love what we do and we are sure you shall have a good time, while staying at one of our Airbnb properties. We take very good care of our guests, since we think as guests ourselves!

Our properties are designed and furnished in such way to make sure we succeed - and you are 100% satisfied. Its imperative you visit our country, stay with us and go home satisfied with value received for your time & money- so that you come back and tell others too!

We are waiting anxiously to host you ! :)
