Villa Faye, The Peloponnese, Greece
A modern castle villa in Mani
This impressive 17th century stone mansion is located just 15 minutes from picturesque Areopolis and is a fine example of Mani’s imposing architecture. Adapting its glorious stature to contemporary standards of luxurious accommodation, it has been thoughtfully restored and transformed into a unique villa, caressed by the wild, rugged landscape of this distinctive region.
The austere beauty of nature and the charm of local architecture are enhanced by magnificent sea views and exceptional facilities, including a wonderful swimming pool.
Inside, stone walls, wood ceiling beams and whitewashed domes echo the original architecture in living spaces tastefully styled with a minimal-modern twist and a refined selection of unique, premium pieces – a raw wood table, solid wood chest drawers and handpicked ethnic carpets. The 4 comfortable en suite bedrooms are equipped with exceptional signature bathrooms and are spread throughout the property preserving guests’ privacy.
Cooking in the state-of-the-art kitchen with the beautiful vaulted ceiling and overwhelming sea view is a memorable experience while a local cook is available upon request for preparing delicious traditional family meals with homegrown products.
Outdoors, a large terrace unfolds soothing guests with the most ancient yet valuable natural rudiments: the serenity of the elevated rocky landscape, the charm of the lovely garden and the liberating mindfulness inspired by the open sea horizon. Here you can take in the views listening to the sounds of nature, while the sparkling pool invites you to enjoy the endless Greek summer. Tranquility, calmness, panoramic views, nature: these are the priceless gifts of this fine retreat.
