Very near to the hotel one can find the picturesque village of Itilo. Well-preserved stone- houses, stone paths and old byzantine churches (like the temple of Virgin Mary’s Dormition, or the church of Saint George) mark the place. Ιtilo was known from the Mycenaean era as one of the nine Achaic cities governed by Menelaos.

The village is ideal for tranquil walking around. At the south-west end of the village, in the area called “Frigano” an old well-preserved path begins and connects Ιtilo with the lower part of the gulf. Half way the Byzantine church of the Saviour emerges backrounded by the yellowish rocks. The path ends at the bay, a former base of pirates. Two settlements spread around the gulf, Karavostasi and Neo Itilo.

The Mylolagado Canyon, separates Itilo from the castle of Kelefa. This was a fortress, built upon command of the Turk Bezyr Ahmet Kioproulis during the 17th century. The purpose was to subjugate Mani, but the goal was never achieved.

In order to draw a full picture of Itilo’s gulf one must not miss out Limeni, a settlement in the south-west of the bay, which serves as the seaport of Areopolis, the historic centre of Mani.

The clear turquoise waters carve the rocks and the houses of the village. The ageless tower of Mavromichalis’ family pops up in between (Mavromichalis family was among the leaders of the Greek Revolution).

You’ll be staying in

Stone, the witness of eternity, hard and solid struggles against time, having lived, met and formed the stages of human civilization.
Meanwhile, the Sun, the only and unique form of natural light, the provider of life, was the first deity that human reason perceived and acquired protruding position in all religions. The vital energy is symbolized by the cycle, the perfect geometrical form without beginning and end, which represents infinity and guarantees the order and harmony of the universe.

The hotel has 23 fully equipped rooms and suites, of high quality and elegance in decoration. All rooms offer spectacular sea view for a memorable stay with the coziness of a modern luxury hotel.
The Sun was often sculptured on stones as archeological findings in Cape Tainaro prove. Evermore, the Byzantine Art presents various examples of sun representations in specific motives. The subtractive peculiarity of these motives determines the shape of our logo, referring to the unaffected, frugal natural environment of Mani. The picture is completed by the blue-green colour of the point where sea meets the sky. The creation of an easily recognized symbol which creates a colour contrast on the background of both stone and nature reflects the spirit of “Petra & Fos” – Stone & Light -.

Trekking & Pic Nic in Kardamyli
The tour starts from the fortified tower houses of old Kardamyli and follow the path that once was part of the ancient so called 'royal road' connecting Kardamyli with Sparta. Along the way we visit some of the traditional, beautiful little villages of the region, we walk through their narrow streets as we learn about their past. Byzantine churches, stone built watchtowers, old fountains olive and grain mills reveal the life of the past. In a small distance ahead, mount Taygetos stands snowed in some of its highest peaks. A small break for a healthy picnic with traditional local delicacies.
NLP Workshop
Leading Change through the use of positive language: How does our brain work? How does it filter information and stimuli? What is the unconscious function and how it is affected by the use of negative Vs Positive Language. How can programming - mobilize using positive language?
Cave Diros visit
Diros Caves are characterised among the most stunning caves in the world. The Glyfada River runs through the floor of the cave and at a certain point, where the river widens, a lake is formed. Small boats guide you through the lake, so that you can enjoy the impressive stalactites and stalagmites. The boats take you to various chambers and tunnels, which "host" myriads of bright white, pink, and red stalactites, as well as grey and white pillars.
