Mani House Ktima Kriviana
Mani House is located near Gythio town on the Mani Peninsula, at Laconia, an area of the Peloponnese rich in history. Its residents, the Maniots, were forceful men and Mani has maintained its independence throughout the years. Overlooking the “SKOUTARI” Gulf, 500 meters away from the sea, the villa offers a stunning view of the sea along with the opposite slopes of the mountain “Taygetos”, thanks to a beautiful infinity pool.
The house of 441.32 sqm is built on a stone-fenced plot of 5,015.41 sqm, with a living space of 275.75 sqm and 165.57 sqm for auxiliary space including a garage of 80 sqm and 2.7 heights. The traditional buildings of Mani were built of stone following a fortress-like design; many vendettas amongst the Mani families meant that people built homes to protect themselves. Elements of this traditional style are reflected in the design of Mani House. The stone walls are combined with a modern interior focused on comfort and luxury. The traditional, albeit unique, property, features all modern conveniences including, among others, a sound system for different areas of the house, satellite TV, stone built BBQ and wood oven, as well as an infinity pool with breathtaking views.
The main entrance to the property is from the pool terrace. The large infinity pool is of the following dimensions: Length 12.80m x 5.45m width, x 2.70 depth x 1.35m in the shallow part and 3.00m in the deep part. The wooden door leads to a bright and spacious central living area. Each part of this central living space fits beautifully into a perfectly designed interior.
The colours are simple, creams and stone, with a flagged floor that runs throughout. The shutters are painted in pale pistachio and bright magenta has been introduced throughout the soft furniture and dining chairs which give a contrast of brilliance to the colour scheme. Large French style doors lead from every area to the pool terrace which offers a perfect place to relax during any part of the day.
Enjoy your stay at Mani House using the sun loungers that surround the pool, the shaded areas to dine or sit under the shade of the huge oak tree whilst playing a game of chess or backgammon.
The kitchen is located at the rear of the large central living space and is fully equipped with all modern conveniences. It offers direct access to a patio at the back of the house, which takes on a traditional, cafe-style appearance featuring pretty, metal chairs and tables and a BBQ and bread oven to conjure up the flavours of Greece.
On the same level but in a separate wing are three bedrooms. One has a double bed with an en-suite bathroom including a bathtub and a large dressing area. Next, there are two twin bedrooms, each one featuring an en-suite bathroom with a shower. All bedrooms have direct access to the pool terrace and their own A/C.
The next floor features an office with en-suite bathroom and shower and a comfortable double bed. This room benefits from a balcony overseeing the pool terrace and sea view. Finally, on the basement level, the guests can benefit from indoor parking for 2-3 cars. On the same level, and for our guests’ comfort, the Mani house caretaker is based. He looks after the property and stays in a self-contained, totally independent apartment, on the basement level. He is very discreet and tends to the engine room located at the same level, as well as the pool, usually twice a week, very early in the morning or very late at night, leaving guests to enjoy their privacy unless he is needed.
The Mani House, (a Boutique hotel), is located on a large piece of land which has been planted with colourful indigenous plants, shrubs and trees. The stone paths, steps, and walkways meander through the property can lead to our old oak tree for the most wonderful shade in the heat of the day. The property, while offering guests the desired privacy, is very well located in terms of accessing the beach and taverns, shops and cafes which are all a short drive away. The Mani House is really exceptional and is situated in a part of Greece that is truly beautiful and waits to be discovered.
