Papanestoras Apartments + Studios
If you’re looking for a place with panoramas, Papanestoras Apartments + Studios offer an exceptional sojourn in Kardamili. Located on the first foothill just behind the village – an elevated area that has some of the best, uninterrupted panoramas of the bay and surrounding plateau – this accommodation enjoys the unparalleled ambience of the personal villa that has all the advantages of traditional Greek hospitality. Managed by the extremely kind Kostas Papanestoras, a gentleman with a sterling reputation as one of the finest hosts in the area, these lodgings have everything you could dream of: stunning views, a charming garden, spacious guestrooms, tasteful décor, trellised verandas, unobtrusive hospitality... and excellent prices. The atmosphere here is magical: birdsongs, fruit orchards where you can pick your own apples, figs, grapes, mandarins and oranges, wonderful colour and light. At just 3-5 minutes’ walk from Kardamili main street, and with numerous other commendable features, Papanestoras comes highly recommended for those who love traditional Greek lodgings.
Set like two small silver-emerald jewels in the hillside olive grove, the 2 main guesthouses have 6 lodgings to choose from: 3 spacious apartments and 2 large studios. Each open-plan apartment/studio has its own fully-kitted kitchen (with cooker and fridge), bathroom (with shower), private furnished veranda, air-conditioning and TV. The interior décor is traditional, with stone walls and pinewood furniture; the layouts are clean and uncluttered, creating an ambience which is relaxing and warm. Spotless, airy and inviting, couples and small families will feel completely at home in these lodgings that provide peace and privacy. Extra beds are available for bigger families.
Papanestoras has its own driveway with ample private parking, but if you prefer walking this accommodation is close (5-10 minutes’ walk) to many of Kardamili’s best spots: St. John’s Harbour, the village main street and Old Kardamili... And if you’re partial to hiking, the paths to Petrovouni and Viros Gorge are also nearby.
