Reviewed February 24, 2015

The setting is excellent , also the rooms and common spaces. The only you can hear is the river which can be viewed from the balconies.
We have rent the whole house for 3 nights 8pax , end of February-15, booked during Christmas 2014.
What I want to point out is that after 1/1/15 there is a difference if you rent 4 rooms or the whole house, since Nikolas is staying there in both cases. The booking was for the whole house , not just 4 rooms, and some days before our arrival I discovered that Nikolas is going to stay in "our house". This change didnt communicated to me and we had some serious disputes about it, which solved after a long long discussion, and finally Nicolas stayed in another place. That's why I put just one star for services. If you want breakfast + dinner, not be prepared by yourself, you need Nikolas, but we wanted to be alone and our wifes to stroll around wearing their pajamas.
Some small flies are on the upper floor windows, but without any problem.
Overall, I DO SUGGEST this place.
Some tips for the area: Good central location, Excellent for 4x4 driving. Kankion springs, Agia Paraskeyi Gorge, the way from Trypi-Kalamata, Faraggi Myllon, Mystras --> worth to visit.

We had a fantastic 3 weeks here with Laura and Nikolas - we have 4 children aged 6-11 and they loved the house and the swimming pools. It is an idyllic location, there are nice tavernas a short walk away as well as excellent home cooking, and we were made to feel incredibly welcome - nothing was too much trouble, and we were really well looked after. The children are longing to go back. Very highly recommended.

We stayed 2 nights at Knakion Guesthouse in July 2014 after visiting Mistras. The House is located in a green river valley reached by a small asphalted road. Its a spectacular location for nature lovers, the romantic waterfall where you can refresh with very nice old platane trees is just some 100 m away. The historic stone house is very nicely and high class decorated, the rooms have a balcony with a view to the sparta valley.
It was relaxing and a great fun staying with Nikolas (speaking Greek, Englisch) and Laura (speaking Italian, English and a bit of German) and we looking Forward staying there again
