“Don't miss this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Very lovely place, very romantic and quiet, lovely details, gorgeous gardens and very well looked after. This is a great place for kids too, playground and lots of space for running around and exploring.

Room Tip: All are lovely and good sizes - perfection down to the smallest details.

We were amazed by the property itself but more so by the professionalism and warm hospitality of the staff. The hotel is located in a small vintage village called Toriza at Taygetus Mountain (850m height). We were privileged to stay at this gorgeous resort. Everything about this magnificent property is exceptional: the caring and professional staff; the unbelievable villas and tranquil surroundings; the rich breakfast buffet with local delights; the comfortable bed, crisp cotton sheets and duvet; the jacuzzi shower with piping hot water; the quiet residential location and the unforgettable ambiance of this majestic property. There's no doubt the staff at this astounding property fully deserve their #1 rating on tripadvisor. Truly memorable in every way. Other hoteliers should visit this luxurious resort to see how it's done right: prioritizing the client's needs, providing a truly exceptional experience in a comfortable and welcoming environment. We'll definitely be back!

A well-managed property with excellent service, and spacious and clean rooms with fantastic view. The location is also very good and offers many options for mountain related activities. Highly recommended for couples and families with kids.

We are just back from a fantastic 3 days spent in the mountains near Sparta. The area was wonderful and we were extremely happy with the IIaeira Mountain resort which is located in a small village high on the mountain. The service was excellent from start to finish, as good as I have had anywhere in Greece (and many places beyond). The room we had (actually a small cottage) was ideal, very nicely appointed with lots of character and great views. Breakfast was great and as was the evening meal. Local well prepared food, local wine and some good Greek music. There are lots of forest roads and marked tracks where you can wander through fragrant pine forest beneath snow capped mountains. We will be back!

It is true that Taygetos has amazing paths to explore and hidden beauties really worth seeing. Next time you must hike to the top of the mountain through E4 to see the pyramid, you will be amazed with the view from there. Thank you very very much for your review !!! We will be happy to see you again.

A beautiful location, great cabin accommodations with cozy fireplace & kitchen. The restaurant was good and had live music one night which was great & filled with locals. The drive is long & steep but worth the stay.

Trekking around this stunning natural environment is calming and reviving. All you need is a good stay and we got much more than that. Everything was absolutely perfect and the people there were so helpful and cheerful. Hope we'll visit again soon!

When seeking accommodations in the southern Peloponnese, Ilaeira Mountain Resort far surpasses everything that you could possibly expect or hope for. I think of it not only as the most romantic place that we've ever stayed but, more importantly, the most extraordinary experience that I can remember anywhere. The resort's owner, Peggy, makes all other hotels pale in comparison. All hotel owners should use Peggy as their model because no one anywhere is more attentive to making your stay more comfortable and luxurious. We had, of course, never met Peggy until the day that we arrived but she made us feel almost as if we were long-lost family. While we were in Greece, we really splurged on our dining experiences but our dinner and breakfast at Ilaeira were exceedingly sumptuous and delicious -- quite ironic considering the legendary Spartan lifestyle. Almost every detail exceeds your expectations. For example, we were given so much firewood that I was able to keep the flames sizzling in the fireplace for six or seven hours! Not only would I return to Ilaeira but I will one day go out of my way to return -- it is such a truly wonderful and memorable experience.

Room Tip: To the best of my knowledge, every cabin faces the snow-capped mountain views of Mt. Taygetos -- I d...
