A memorable, dreamy getaway at the Byzantine castle of Monemvasia


LOCATION

Inside the Byzantine castle of Monemvasia, in Laconia, a 3.5-hour drive from Athens and a 2.5-hour drive from Kalamata International Airport.

 

BACKGROUND

Moni Emvasis Luxury Suites take their name from the old fortified town of Monemvasia, meaning “sole entrance,” overlook the Aegean Sea and the settlement’s ancient rooftops, offering a memorable, dreamy getaway for those who want to pamper themselves in medieval surroundings.

FEATURES

You can choose from the junior, the deluxe and the Moni Emvasis suite, each with private balcony, ideal for sumptuous breakfasts or romantic dinners for two. Furnished with an eclectic mix of high-end Italian design furniture and antiques of timeless craftsmanship, each suite also features a marble fireplace for traditional warmth and luxurious bathrooms with Amazonian Jacuzzi jet and chromotherapy shower units for modern-day relaxation.

FOOD & DRINK

The owners of Moni Emvasis Luxury Suites recommend the Chrisovoulo Gourmet Restaurant Café and Bar located on the main cobblestone pathway leading through the town. There, you can savor contemporary and traditional Greek dishes, prepared with the finest local ingredients by an award-winning chef, enjoy a warm cup of coffee and homemade dessert, or slowly sip a cocktail or glass of local wine on the outdoor terrace.
