Marathea Farm, Peloponnese


Marathea Farm is located near to Marathea Village, which is10 km from the picturesque harbour of Gytheion, in the southern Peloponnese. The farm is set between forest, mountains and the sea. Clean air, rare wild flowers and plants, ancient temples and classical theatres, Byzantine monasteries and churches in the region of Lakonia all help to make your stay at the farm an unforgettable experience.

On most evenings, guests eat together around a large table in the old square of Marathea village and the menu includes organic produce from the surrounding countryside and Marathea Farm. Local musicians will also come to play, more often than not.

The farm has also been running a series of creative seminars for several years with professional teachers, which you can participate in and combine this with excursions or walks along ancient paths. Organic olive oil, wine and honey are produced by traditional methods, and you have the opportunity to try them and buy them.if you so wish.

A quiet beach lies 4 km from the farm, and once a day the farm's new bus commutes back and forth between beach and farm, allowing you to enjoy sun, sea and sand every day.

The property is built in traditional style and is equipped with all modern facilities. There are eight twin-bedded studios, all with shower and kitchenette with fridge. The four ground floor studios have a veranda with view of the sea. The first floor has a balcony with views of the Taygetos mountain. There are also facilities for disabled people, two studios have special doors and toilets. The drinking water comes from the farm's own well.
