Was born and raised in Marathopolis and own a well known restaurant in the area. I have lived in big cities but the ambience, the tranquility and the sounds of the sea have won my heart, so now live in the Messinian countryside.
I've put in my best effort to develop the properties that you see in my profile and all my aspirations are built into them. You are most welcome to come and experience a great level of hospitality.
Eating great food, spending time with good friends, meeting new people and travelers from all over the world and living at a great countryside location I think are the things that I can't live without!
Love to talk about my hometown Marathopolis and providing great info about Messinia and Kalamata.
Also love caring for my guests. I really strive to provide an excellent service and also whatever I can to make your experience the best possible, one that can fill you with great memories after the moment you depart from my homes.
