Guest House Londas is an ideal accomodation to every traveleller who comes to explore Mani. The 18th c. fortress-like tower, typical of Mani has been preserved and renovated with a refined taste. Hans and Iakovos, the owners of Londas, transformed the old tower into a harmonic and elegant residence which contrasts mainstream accomodation in the area. Right into the heart of Areopoli, Londas became soon the ideal spot for our studying and relaxation but also of our strolls in nature. Hans and Iakovos were very happy to help us plan our excursions to less known sites e.g. to visit old churches of the 11th and of 13th century, or to abandoned settlements. In addition they offered to us their deep knowledge of herbs and of native flora.
We will never forget the sun bathed minimalistic bedrooms but also the open roof terraces leading our sight to the Messinian Gulf or to the mountains. Breakfast included the most pure local products, bread from the wooden oven, local cheese and homemade marmelade. We still keep in mind the homemade liqueurs under the star-filled sky. Often combined with long conversations about colours in painting or even colours in life, the top-level art of both the owners.
