A two-storey traditional stone house, fully equipped, comfortable and cool, ideal for those who want the experience of the Greek summer in one of the most picturesque mountain villages in the Peloponnese, combining laceful beaches (5 -10 minutes by car), walks on the verdant mountains or the ancient treasures (Olympia, Mycenae, Epidavros) as well as the colorful vibrancy of the neighboring cities (Akrata, Aigio, Patras etc.)

The space
The house is built in the heart of Ano Platanos, a 19th century hilly village overlooking the sea. The thick stone walls and stone-paved floors, the wooden ceilings and the old frames are elements of the local architecture we respected. The unique view, the feeling of village life, the surrounding nature and sunlit gardens offer real off the beaten track experiences of the Greek summer in Egialia.
This house inspired and gave birth, among other things, to some great writing; successfull TV series such as The Guards of Achaia or The Bypass, films such as Slaves in their Bonds or Illusion, novels and short stories have all been created right here. Soula (Pierrakou), a Greek writer who lived in this house and loved it with all her heart, used to say that vacationing in it always had the magical ability to calm you and recharge your batteries. She was absolutely right! Today this house opens its doors by Yannis, her son and a writer as well, and invites everyone to discover the unique beauties of the area in an authentic and inspiring environment.

I have studied History and Cinematography. I am a writer myself; I have written prose, a few Greek TV series and a couple of movies as well. In general, I am a friendly person who likes going out and traveling, good times and friendly attitudes (who doesn't?), loves nature and the sea, and is always interested in learning new things. I am married and I have a son in kindergarten. My motto could be: people and true feelings are what counts; a warm smile or a good friend could be your most valuable reward after all.

During your stay

Arriving in Akrata (or Diakofto) I will be there to welcome you, to take you home (10 min drive), show you the house and deliver your keys. And of course, I will give you all the necessary information, firsthand to spend the most beautiful of your holidays and discover what the tourist guides and the web probably do not write. At home you will have your privacy, but I, personally, on my cell phone and certain people from the village will be next to you for any help needed.
