Fodor's Expert Review Kapetanakos Tower
Near Archangels church at edge of town, Areopoli, Peloponnese, 23062, Greece Fodor's Choice
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
This traditional stone tower, dating from 1826, is a simple but atmospheric place to get into the spirit of the Mani, with five whitewashed rooms, two with sleeping lofts, in the tower and reached by ladderlike stairs. Two others are in a stone outbuilding. Several are set up for families, and all have homey wood furniture and locally crafted rugs. An excellent breakfast is served in a pretty garden in warm weather.
