Villa Douvris description

The village of Xirokambi is 18km south of Sparti, Lakonia in the Peleponesos, and is within reach of wonderful scenery, adventures and experiences.

There are many ancient sites, monasteries, forest and natural beauty all nearby.

Restaurants and shops in walking distance.

The home is the upper floor of a large 2 story traditional stone house with 12 ft. high ceilings and French double doors. The house was built by my grandparents and mother and is furnished with 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, kitchen and living room. The main bedroom has a double and twin bed, table, chair and full wardrobe. The smaller bedroom has a double bed, night stand and wardrobe. The living room has a couch/recliner bed, wide screen TV, DVD player and stereo.
The whole area has many ancient sites, monasteries, forest and natural beauty. Besides all the modern comforts it also retains the charm of early Greek traditional arts, crafts, cuisine and culture. The local people are very hospitable and most speak English. Sparta and Gythion also both have exciting night life activities.
I would be very happy to host you in my listing and make sure you have a great
holiday! Please feel free to contact me in case you have any questions about the
place or the area. Looking forward to hearing from you.

The Laconia - Peloponnese region

The village lies off a major road halfway between the historic and presently commercial center of Sparta and the beautiful seaport beach resort of Gythion approximately 25 km from each. The weather is usually mild with a nice summer breeze blowing off the mountain which also protects the valley from winter storms. The whole area is lush with much greener, fresh air, and delicious cool spring water Xirokambi is on a regular bus route with 6 stops a day from Sparta and has many inexpensive taxis so an auto is not necessary. However, many inexpensive car rental places are available in Sparta and Gythion. Footpaths and biketrails lead along streams into pine forest meadows, scents of wildflowers and herbs as well as close to the mideval town of Komosta. The whole area has many ancient sites, monasteries, forest and natural beauty. Besides all the modern comforts it also retains the charm of early Greek traditional arts, crafts, cuisine and culture. The local people are very hospitable and most speak English. Sparta and Gythion also both have exciting night life activities. The coastline 25 minutes away by car has beautiful beaches, private coves, restaurants, castles, caves, museums, shops, and ferryboat service to many Greek islands. Xirokambi has many taverns, cafes, and a large town square a 10 minute walk from the house. There are many stores, bakeries, a post office, ATM, supermarket and weekly farmers market. Public telephones, internet and fax are available as well.
