It is very close to a few charming towns such as Gargalianoi and Filiatra and a few larger towns worth visiting such as Kyparissia, Pylos and Methoni which can be reached in 30 minutes by car. Kalamata, which is the capital of Messinia, is at a distance of 60km and Athens is 300km away.

experience

the hotel: The design of the hotel and the considerable size of the estate gives a sense of privacy and freedom that will immediately make you feel... at home!. Its abundant olive trees and lavenders and a perfectly groomed loan along with the sea and island views provide a sense of quietness, comfort and bliss. A stay at Agrikies is a rural tourism experience at its best.

the area: If you get enough of peacefulness you can enjoy the busy streets or night life with quality entertainment in the nearest Marathopolis as well as in other towns near by.

story

The hotel has been conceptualized by its owner Marina, a very talented graphic and jewelry designer, who decided to leave Athens and create an oasis on an estate which has belonged to her family for generations. The idea was to create a place in accord to the environment where the visitors can experience the placid beauty of the olive grove with comfort and with an unobtrusive sense of esthetic.
