Now, an opportunity has arisen for fans of Fermor to stay in this authentically restored Greek property. There’s a range of accommodation within three stone buildings: the Main House with three suites, the writer’s studio right next to it, which is formed into the Traditional House, as well as the Guest House, adjacent to the Main House. It’s even possible to take over the whole house and with rates including short stays too, this could be a magical place for a party or family get-together.
It certainly lends itself well to larger groups, with plenty of places around the buildings and grounds to relax and take stock of your Mediterranean environ. There are open-air stone arched seated spots, a sublime swimming pool surround by olive trees, cool sofa-clad living areas and a large kitchen with scrubbed farmhouse table. Just below the house, stone steps lead to a pebble beach and the fishing village of Kardamyli offers deliciously authentic tavernas with stunning sea-views.
