TERRACE: Practise your morning workouts on the terrace enjoying the magnificent view to the top of Mt. Taygetos and to the southern most Cape of Europe, Tainaron.
AUTHENTICITY: Respecting the house that inspired in me the love for archaeology and the values of the Greek earth, my main concern was to secure the guests’ comfortable and unforgettable stay, while preserving the old mansion’s authenticity; the traditional -bioclimatic- architecture of the buildings complex intact: the stone walls, the two centuries old roof tiles, the
cedar window blankets, the doors, the wooden cypress floor, the cistern, the outdoor wood oven, the “liakos” veranda, and the pergola with the old vine-arbour, the wall colors: ochra, blue, asbestos white, the dry stone fences around the two acres local herbs and almond trees garden, and the “shepherd’s house”, a rare 17th c. building.

Being an archaeologist and environmentalist I know the region quite well. Written by me an explicit guide with places to go on foot, to drive by car, the best places to eat, details about the local cuisine, the history of the mansion and the family, will be available at the house. Me and my collegue are willing to support our guests in anything they may need and make them feel at home.

Muita huomioonotettavia seikkoja

Delicious gastronomy in the local tavernas. Vegetarians will love, besides the Greek salad with local feta cheese, the wild greens salad, the green pies and the local cheese. The freshly made "goges" pasta will challenge your Italian experience. Delicious local lamb on the spit, lamb chops and smoked sausage with orange.
The village produces aromatic thyme and flowers honey, olive oil, and olives.

We enjoyed our stay at Sparta Gaia in the upstairs room. The room was comfortable, and the grounds were very nice. It was easy walking to the little village which has coffee shops, tavernas, a bakery and a small grocery -- everything you need. It was centrally located to visit many places, but you do need a car. There was a place to park the car as well. In the Sparta Gaia romantica room, there is not cooking facilities, but a refrigerator and a kettle, you can make coffee or tea easily. Nice outdoor spaces to relax in. Unfortunately we did not get to meet Dimitra because she was out of town, but her friend Eleni was most accommodating and very helpful! But even from afar, Dimitra was very helpful, and helped to make our stay perfect. Overall, we would stay here again!

This is a double room in a traditional and historic housing complex close to a friendly village. The room is well equipped and includes a fridge, fan and air conditioning (which we barely used because there is a lovely breeze a lot of the time). The hosts are very generous, welcoming and knowledgable about the area. Agios Dimitrios is a perfect base for exploring the region and Dimitra provides a very detailed guide to local beaches, tavernas and historical sites. We had a peaceful stay. It is the ideal place for a writing retreat but it also feels well connected to the village. Local figs, honey and yogurt are unmissable.

Sparta Gaia, is magic, in a still unspoiled spot in the peloponnese, where one discovers wonderful scenery, beaches and history. Perfect for those who want a relaxing holiday away form the horde of tourist invading southern Europe in the summer.

We had a great time at Agios Dimitros - lovely people, a lively village life and great food! We didn't meet Dimitra but a friend of her checked us in! It was about 40 min away from Monemvasia - with a car that was no problem!

Dear Julian, thank you for your positive comments. Two weeks ago that we started to rent our house, Agios Demetrios was an unknown village to tourists. Mentioning Monemvasia we wanted to help our guests orient themselves with a well-known landmark. We also thought that the area’s attractiveness was the proximity to Monemvasia. But, within these two weeks our guests helped us realize that the comparative advantage of our house, lying in the heart of a lively village and surrounded by nature is that it is a SPARTA GAIA retreat. Additionally, it is an historic house which has not been set for tourists, like Monemvasia. We own them the name, which describes the uniqueness of our place and we thank all of you for making us believe in its value. Julian, you are always welcomed to our house!

Dimitra's place is as lovely as it looks in the pictures. Communicating with her was very easy and she was very helpful in giving us directions to get there (it's not really easy to drive around Peloponnese, even with a GPS). Fresh figs and almonds in the morning are a plus!We definitely recommend this place for a bit of relax :)

The house is located in a countryside village. Pretty garden with hammac, wood oven and with figs and almonds you can pick up from the trees. This is a very relaxing location at the heart of nature while still conveniently located close to supermarkets and taverns. We had a very warm welcome from Dimitra who was even kind enough to bring us to the butcher to buy some meat for the wood oven / barbecue we wanted to use ! We definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a countryside retreat. Thank you Dimitria !

Ένα υπέροχο αυθεντικό αρχοντικό, πολύ ζεστή ατμόσφαιρα και φιλοξενία. Η καλύτερη φιλοξενία ever!!! Η Δήμητρα απίστευτος άνθρωπος με α κεφαλαίο, πολύ εξυπηρετική, αληθινή, ζεστή και σε έκανε αμέσως να νιώσεις σαν στο σπίτι σου! Ήταν τέλεια απόδραση από την καθημερινότητά μας! Το δωμάτιο ήταν όπως στις φωτογραφίες, φωτεινό, καθαρό και άνετο. Κάναμε πολλές εκδρομές, περιπάτους, ανακαλύψαμε υπέροχες παραλίες και τα δάση του Πάρνωνα. Το Κάστρο της Μονεμβασίας ήταν αρκετά κοντά για ένα ποτό. Τι να πρωτοπούμε για την πανδαισία των παραδοσιακών πιάτων που γευτήκαμε στις ταβέρνες του χωριού! Υπέροχο μέρος - υπέροχοι άνθρωποι! Σε ευχαριστούμε πολύ Δήμητρα για τις όμορφες και αξέχαστες ημέρες που μας προσέφερες στο αρχοντικό σου. Μόλις μας δοθεί η ευκαιρία θα σου ξαναέρθουμε...

Dimitra is an incredible woman, very helpful, true, warm and made us feel right at home! It was a perfect escape from our everyday life! The room was as in the photos, bright, clean and comfortable. We made many excursions, walks, we discovered wonderful beaches and the forests of Parnon. The Castle of Monemvasia was close enough for a drink. What can I say for the feast of the traditional dishes that we tasted in the taverns of the village! Lovely place - great people! Thank you very much Dimitra for the beautiful and unforgettable days you gave us in your mansion. Once we get the chance, we'll come back to you ... My response: Vasiliki thank you. Come back soon!!
