Mani is our family’s favorite summer destination. With picturesque stone villages on emerald bays, the traditional towers, medieval chapels, gorgeous little towns and delicious cuisine, you can understand why.
Chara Houses is located just 20 minutes from Gytheio town, where you’ll find everything you need, while within 5 minutes drive, you’ll find grocery stores in Skoutari village. The cobblestone alleys of beautiful Areopoli town are just 25 minutes from here, and we recommend you pay a visit to its amazing taverns and gelaterias. In 30 minutes, you’ll find yourselves in Instagram’s favorite Limeni bay, where the sunset is sublime and you’ll get to see sea turtles. Three amazing beaches are even closer, Kotronas, Skopa and Chalikia Vatta, with Alypa’s gorgeous green waters being a bit further away.
However, you’ll soon see that Kalamakia beach right in front of Chara Houses, as well as all of the sandy stretches of Skoutari are pretty magical to swim at and spend the whole day – and night, with cozy little taverns along the coast serving amazing seafood right on the shore.
