A Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! We are two American couples who spent an idyllic week in Dimitris' cottage. The cottage is simple yet comfortable with a beautiful garden and views over the orange grove to the sea. Livadi is a quiet village and, though there is no market, Leonidin is a short drive away and has many shops. We took day trips to Monemvasia, Mystra, and the Mani, but I think I enjoyed most our days in the garden preparing our meals, taking short walks and going for swims. Dimitris and Eleni were wonderful hosts, welcoming and warm. When Eleni was unable to tell us English names for some of the plants in the garden, they invited a British friend to help us. We have fond memories and dream of returning someday!

A cottage with character at a reasonable price

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here from 28 September 2015 for a week and were more than satisfied. Livadi is not for those wanting a bustling night life but for peace and relaxation is beautiful surroundings it is ideal. The cottage itself is self contained with air conditioning, which we did not require in late September, and has all that is necessary, including a terrace with sea view - ideal for leisurely breakfasts! The nearest taverna is only two minutes walk away and is good and very reasonable.

Dimitri and Eleni were very friendly and helpful and could not do enough for us.

We hope to return!

A beautiful low tourist area

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Livadi from 3rd to 9th July. Excellent directions helped us drive from Athens easily. The cottage is beautiful with a lovely garden around it. Dimitri and Eleni were very welcoming. There are two excellent tavernas within walking distance. Though the beach is pebbly it is so close and there are nice shady areas to sit. The exceptionally clear water is at your feet all day. We visited Sambatiki beach and even ventured as far as Kyparissi and down to Monemvasia with breathtaking drives across the mountainous terrain.Leonidio proved to have everything we needed for supplies and a cash machine. The villa was spacious and pleasant with two nice shady areas - one looking out to the sea.

Car: recommended

The cottage is 5 minute walk from the sea but there are several other beaches within a few minutes' drive. The town of Leonidion is some 9km to the South Leonidio is ideal for climbing. and the coastal village of Tyros is the same distance to the North - both these have shopping, banking and other facilities. Livadi is conveniently located for day trips to such archaelogical sites as Mystras, Mycaenae, Epidavros, Geraki and Argos. It is also a great base for hill walking - there are several paths and trails in the nearby Parnona range. The local villages - Melana, Pragmateftis, Ano Tyros, Sapounakeika etc are very traditional and provide a chance to experience 'the real Greece' which most tourists never see.
