muses Apartments Kardamyli, Mani

Let Kardamyli's Muses inspire you!

In Greek mythology, the 9 Muses were inspirational goddesses of literature, science and the arts.

Today, 4 of them, Terpsichori, the muse of dance, Efterpi, the muse of music, Erato, the muse of lyrical poetry, and Thalia, the muse of good will and good cheer, invite you to visit beautiful Kardamyli on the scenic Mani Peninsula of the Peloponnese

...and discover what "philoxenia," the Greek word for hospitality, really means.

"Philoxenia" means finding your personal Paradise

Patrick Leigh Fermor found his Paradise here

Patrick Leigh Fermor, the indefatigable traveler and travel writer, who at the age of 18, in 1933, walked 2600 Km from the town of Hook in Holland to Constantinople (now Istanbul), certainly considered Kardamyli his personal Paradise.

Having first visited Kardamyli in the late 1950s, a place cut off from the world and stuck in time in comparison to his bustling birthplace of London, he decided by 1964 to settle here, a place he called home till his death at the age of 96.

Discover Kardamyli

Green by land and blue by sea

Kardamyli was first mentioned 3000 years ago by Homer in The Illiad.

It was part of an offer King Agamenon made to Achilles in order that he would agree to marry Agamenon's daughter, that came with a dowry of seven cities, the first of which was Kardamyli.

The harbor of Kardamyli

With a population of fewer that 500 residents, and most shops, restaurants and cafes shoulder to shoulder along the main road, Kardamyli makes it extremely easy for young and old to explore its many colorful nooks and crannies.

Discover Mani

Mani is the central of the three southern peninsulas of Peloponnese. It is shaped as a witch’s gnarled finger and it is bound to enchant you.

Mani itself is divided into three areas: Outer Mani lies to the northwest, Inner Mani to the east and Lower Mani to the southeast. Whether mostly green and lush (Outer Mani) or dry and rugged (Inner Mani), the region offers breathtaking locations steeped in history and culture. Once notorious as a pirates' lair, today Mani is equally attractive for families and adventurers.

Here's a glimpse of what you can encounter in this fascinating southern tip of Greece.
