5 eco-houses 60 sm each in a vast olive grove in Laconia, with garden toys, farm and a lovey restaurant where farm to table breakfast and dinner is served every day, all included of course. We loved the farm tour and the extra virgin olive oil tasting, the kids loved how safe it was to run around the whole estate and be close to nature. The property is almost exclusively sustainable and is built and operates with respect to the environment. At the same time, the elegant eco houses have a fully equipped kitchen, 1 separate bedroom with a double bed, space for extra mattresses and travel cot, a living area with two sofa-beds, energy efficient wood fireplaces (it operates 12 months a year), so it’s perfect for large families!

Just 1 hour from Athens, Daphne’s Club Hotel Apartments is a favorite among parents. We’ve stayed twice, once with toddlers and once with preschoolers and both times we loved the safety, the abundance of things to do inside and in the garden, the bicycles and the half board menu, as well as the location, so close to so many amazing sites. But what we love more is the fully equipped kitchen, the comfortable veranda, the separate bedroom, the sitting area with two sofa beds. For larger families or if you’re traveling with the grandparents or nanny, there are apartments with 2 separate bedrooms, apart of course the comfortable living room!
