Been there, done that in Greece? Bypass the tourist trail and explore some of the country’s inland treasures with a stay at Villa Vager, a charming retreat in the Peloponnese with breathtaking views of lush mountains, hilltop villages and pine forest from an altitude of 900 meters. The inmate escape is home to just 10 rooms, all decked out with exposed stone walls, beam ceilings, dark furnishings and characterful features like cozy fireplaces, lanterns and antiques. All bathrooms come with underfloor heating, bathrobes and Molton Brown toiletries. A homemade breakfast buffet is served daily and is laden with Greek produce including thick yogurt, honey, olive bread, kaseri cheese and strong Greek coffee. There’s no restaurant onsite but there are traditional tavernas within walking distance in the village of Levidi. The hotels’s star attraction is a giant alfresco hot tub, positioned to take in the awesome views of the surrounding countryside.
In the Area
The property is around a two-hour drive from Athens, and a 20-minute drive from Tripoli, the capital of the Peloponnese. The hotel can arrange tons of activities in the local area including cooking lessons, wine tours and tastings in the Mantineia wine region, quad biking in the mountains and kayaking on the Ladonas River. Ancient sites in the surrounding Arcadia region include Epidaurus with its 4th-century amphitheater and Olympia, the site of the Olympic Games between the 8th-century BC to the 4th century AD.
How to Get There
Vila Vager is a superb place to stay of very high architectural and interior design approach. The couple who owns the place are very friendly and can suggest places to visit in the area. The nice breakfast and jacuzzi option add to the experience..
On the negative side I would only comment that wifi signal was too weak at our room (and slow) and that our room had only one window on the ground so when open there was no privacy.. Yet, our room was a free offer, so I would suggest to visit the nicer rooms on the first floor.
Very hospitable, family owned and operated, excellent food and service with a great view all done in very good taste. Ask the hostess if she will prepare a Greek dinner for you with some local wines. All good.
A unique and a wonderful place, full of charm and peaceful located in a beautiful area . the staff and the owners were very friendly and helpful.
And the hosting was elegant and generous.
Thank you very much.
Perfect choice for exploring the center of Peloponnesus. A refurbished old property, with attention to the smallest detail. All the people of villa Vager are there to make sure that you ll have an excellent stay. Thank you for your hospitality!
