This is one of the best places I have stayed in Greece. It's a genuine restored Mani fortified tower house, still owned by the original family. Lovingly restored and maintained, with a wonderfully eclectic mix of antiques and modern craft pieces. Very comfortable with genuinely friendly hosts who lavish you with attention when you arrive and then leave you alone!... More

What a wonderful place to stay for at least a couple of nights and even more! The hotel resides in a traditional house-fortress, typical of the Mani peninsula, and is less than five minutes drive from Pyrgos Dirou caves. When we were passing such fortresses on our way there, I couldn't believe we would be staying in one of them!... More

If you don't know what 'Greek hospitality' means, just experience a stay at Sventoura! You feel at home by all means. Great people, great place! Highly recommended. Interior and exterior designing just fabulous in harmony with the history of Mani, with a touch of ethnic spirit. Clean and comfortable rooms. Atmospheric Veranda from where you can watch the sun set.... More

Boutique hotel with excellent decoration and architecture. The owners, a couple of middle-aged people will do their best to make you enjoy a warm stay. The only disadvantage is the distance from the sea and the lack of seaview from most of the rooms. Satisfactory breakfast. Beautifuly decorated rooms and common-use areas. Excellent proximity to Diros cave.

I would return in a heartbeat! I booked Sventoura for two nights one morning and arrived the same afternoon. We liked it so much we changed a future night's booking and extended our stay for a 3rd night and would have stayed longer if we could. Our room was #103 the large "penthouse" room on the top floor with windows... More

I stayed here one night. I wish I could have stayed more. The hotel is actually located in Pyrgos Dirou which is an old village. Most of the buildings are Byzantine stone. The hotel actually has a small Byzantine chapel on its property. One the second level is a deck with a wonderful view of the sea. The location is... More
