About the property

In one of the best parts of Peloponnese, Harakas village is picturesque&bright

This beautiful traditional and cozy small house is located in a magic place. The area of Lakonia where Harakas village is situated is only 9klm from the famous beach of Kyparissi and at the same time it is embraced by the evergreen mountain flora. Our little house offers all comforts but the most important characteristic is the fact that you will live like a local in a stone-built traditional house in the heart of a picturesque village, built on 600m surrounded by mediterannean flora. The house is climbed up above the village square, overlooking vinyards, olive & almond trees and many more.

About Lilian & Eva

Hello dear friends. I am a private school owner who loves traveling and meeting people from around the world. I love my two houses in Laconia Peloponnese and I am sure you will love them too. I will share all the secrets of the area with you!

Why Lilian & Eva chose Monemvasia

Harakas is a village of unique location and aura. It is ideal as a base for your exploration of the area of Laconia. Far from the touristic places and yet close to every beach, mountain and site you want to visit! The house has kept both the architecture and the decoration of the previous century. However it is fresh and full of light. You will adore the quiet of the afternoons in the village...

What makes this house unique


Where to swim:

The eastern coastline of the Municipality of Monemvasia is scattered with mostly pebbly beaches around Zarakas and Monemvasia, protected from southerly and southwesterly winds.

In the north of the municipality are the beaches of Aghia Kyriaki, Megali Ammos and Drymiskos at Kyparissi, and Vlychada near Riechia.

Close to Gerakas is Kochylas, near Aghios Ioannis are Kastraki and the busy Pori.

Near Molai, Elia and Plytra beaches.

The beach at Monemvasia’s new town is Kakkavos. Swimming is also possible off the rocks at Portelo in the shadow of the Lower Town walls.

Further south are the beaches of Nomia: Ampelakia, Xifias and Aghios Fokas.


One of the most impressive caves of Greece can be found near the village of Kastania on the southern tip of the Peloponnese, just minutes away from Neapoli. The route follows the winding mountain road leading to the forest-covered eastern slopes of Mt. Parnon.


From the beautiful seaside village of Kyparissi, it is hard to imagine that hidden amongst the surrounding cliffs lies a large fir forest on a mountainside offering a number of lovely hikes. The entirety of Mt. Hionovouni comprises a Natura habitat and was once filled with human activities, as evidenced by the many huts and goatfolds and terraced fields, most of them now abandoned. A series of paths, based on the original network, provide an opportunity to enjoy these traces of human endeavour and to enjoy the wonderful landscape. The main route forms part of national hiking path 33 that crosses Hionovouni from the village of Kremasti to Lambokambo.

Other routes branch off to villages in the foothills – the three settlements of Kyparissi and Harakas. All the paths can be combined as desired, beginning and ending at different points, depending on hikers’ interests and abilities.


Kyparissi Rock Climbing Area

A wonderful area to explore!

Lovely relaxing stay in a friendly small village

  • 5 of 5

A great few days in a small village. The local people welcomed us and showed us around the area. The village is in the hills where dramatic scenery is around every corner. The little house overlooks the village and has two terraces one facing the morning sun and one the evening. The house is very well equipped and ideal for a couple or family but the access involves a fairly steep path and some steps. The beaches are approx 10 km away

Very authentic house in charming village

  • 5 of 5

Lilians house is a litlle jewel, recently re-decorated with a tasteful mix of authentic Greek and etnic elements, and located in a tradional, charming village. Although small, the house is practical and well equiped with a lot of sense for detail. We were warmly welcomed by Lilian. Having diner at Nikos' local taverna, we felt immedately welcomed by the whole village. The house is idealy located for day trips to Monemvassia, Elafonissos, the beautiful beach of Kyparissi. We defenitely recommend Lilians house!

Un endroit inoubliable!

  • 5 of 5

Si vous aimez l'authenticité, le calme et vivre dans un bel espace décoré avec soin, cette endroit est pour vous. Nous avons passé huit jours dans cette maison de village avec trois terrasses aux vues magnifiques. C'est aussi un accueil chaleureux de la propriétaire et des habitants du village. Le coeur du village est une taverne ou il fait bon manger et vivre. Une voiture est indispensable pour rejoindre et sortir de ce lieu isolé. Une très bonne adresse.
