“Great location, lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

This is a small hostel, an old stone building recently renovated. The people who run the place are really friendly, feels like you re among old friends. The two dogs are very friendly and there are also two young cats around the property, that usually climb up the vines and play. The owners were kind enough to show us around the traditional villages around Himare (and drive us there) and take us to the lovely beach of Livadi. We are definitely going back to Himare!
The rooms are very clean and we ll remember that great butter at breakfast and the andrakoula salad at dinner!
