This beautiful traditional and cozy small house is located in a magical place. The area of Lakonia where Harakas village is situated is only 9 klm from the famous beach of Kyparissi and at the same time it is embraced by the evergreen mountain flora. Our little house offers all comforts but the most important characteristic is the fact that you will live like a local in a stone-built traditional house in the heart of a picturesque village..
The house is built in 3 levels and has a big terrace overlooking the fruitful trees. It sleeps 5 people in two bedrooms, the isolated sitting area of the lower floor and the open-plan attic above the kitchen. It is all fully renovated but has maintained all the traditional elements. It offers all comforts without depriving the feeling of living in an authentic village house.

AMAZING THINGS TO DO AND SEE NEAR HARAKAS!
Where to swim:
The eastern coastline of the Municipality of Monemvasia is scattered with mostly pebbly beaches around Zarakas and Monemvasia, protected from southerly and southwesterly winds.
In the north of the municipality are the beaches of Aghia Kyriaki, Megali Ammos and Drymiskos at Kyparissi, and Vlychada near Riechia.
Close to Gerakas is Kochylas, near Aghios Ioannis are Kastraki and the busy Pori.

One of the most impressive caves of Greece can be found near the village of Kastania on the southern tip of the Peloponnese, just minutes away from Neapoli. The route follows the winding mountain road leading to the forest-covered eastern slopes of Mt. Parnon.
HIKING - HINOVOUNI ROUTES
From the beautiful seaside village of Kyparissi, it is hard to imagine that hidden amongst the surrounding cliffs lies a large fir forest on a mountainside offering a number of lovely hikes. The entirety of Mt. Hionovouni comprises a Natura habitat and was once filled with human activities, as evidenced by the many huts and goatfolds and terraced fields, most of them now abandoned. A series of paths, based on the original network, provide an opportunity to enjoy these traces of human endeavour and to enjoy the wonderful landscape. The main route forms part of national hiking path 33 that crosses Hionovouni from the village of Kremasti to Lambokambo.
Other routes branch off to villages in the foothills – the three settlements of Kyparissi and Harakas. All the paths can be combined as desired, beginning and ending at different points, depending on hikers’ interests and abilities.
Kyparissi Rock Climbing Area
Ever since being discovered a few years ago by Greek climbers, the rock climbing area of Kyparissi is now an international destination for enthusiasts of the sport.
What is special about it is the combination of the cliffs and superb views over the Aegean Sea as far as the islands of Hydra and Spetses, even Porto Heli, which seem to be at one’s feet. On a clear day some of the Cycladic islands (Milos, Sifnos, Serifos or Kythnos) appear like rocks flung down into the deep blue sea.
So far 15 climbing routes have been established, thanks to the voluntary efforts of Greek and French climbers, who say there is a potential for hundreds of routes of varying difficulty.
The cliffs are limestone, vertical but with stalagmites, caves and in some cases over 50 metres high. Routes already opened are equipped with stainless steel bolts and are of medium to high difficulty.
Some of the routes are just a minute from the road, others are an hour’s walk. One area is right above the Carved Asclepium and the village.
