About this listing
We are situated in the orange orchard area of Magoula on the way to Mystras.
Homely, quiet, interesting and inviting, this little guest house is a well-kept secret. Set in the middle of the beautiful 15-hectare orange grove, in the valley of mount Taygetus, the guest house is a wonderfully quiet, agro-tourist retreat, with a twist of urban architecture.
Four elegant en suite- bedrooms, a lovely garden, and a relaxed dining area comprise this small warm and friendly atmosphere A wonderfully quiet, agro-tourist retreat, with a twist of urban architecture comprises four elegant en suite- bedrooms, a lovely garden, and a relaxed dining and luxury area.
The four independent houses are tastefully decorated with warm colours, stylish paintings and recycled furniture. The ground floor, which opens onto the garden, has a lounging area with lush cushions where one can enjoy a wide variety of books from the small library situated over the fireplace. Each house is also equipped with a small kitchenette for preparing quick snacks from fresh produce off the garden, if one feels like preparing a simple meal.
The top floor is perfect to snuggle up and “cocoon” in bed with a good book on a cold winter day and enjoy the view of the mountains, often covered in snow until the early spring months. The private veranda overlooking the surrounding gardens and citrus groves: a private moment for all those untimely risers who want to enjoy moments of sunrise and bird (website hidden)ing of early mornings.
Pets are supplied with a small house and stay just outside each apartment.
Please give us notice if you are a family so that we can make arrangements for a children's menu.
Breakfast is included in the price of the room. A standard menu with a variety of options is sent to you by mail in order for you to choose and helps us prepare more efficiently.
Despoina was a great host. She cared bout us and followed my development during my ultramarathon. She even came to pick us up at the finishing line. I would totally recommend her.
We could definitely recommend to visit this place in Sparta. First of all the location is very comfortable, all sightseeings, restaurants, cafés are near (5-10 min. by car). We explored Sparta and now we could say that Desponia's apartments are the best place to stay. It's unique because of the family atmosphere - it seems like you came to visit your old friends or relatives.. The house is very comfortable and modern, you have two floors at your disposal. The owner is very kind and friendly, she gave us good advices, told what places to visit and where to have a good lunch or dinner. We also had a dinner together in a good restaurant near Sparta.
Super accueil de Despoina, au milieu des orangers
Nous avons séjourné une nuit à Sparte, chez Despoina. L’appartement est fidèle aux photos, propre, décoré avec goût.
La terrasse offre une vue très sympa sur les orangers, Mystras et les montagnes du Péloponnèse.
Et que dire de l’accueil ! Despoina nous a fait découvrir la gastronomie grecque et un site archéologique très bien conservé. Délicates attentions, jus d’orange maison, bons plans, un grand merci à elle !

About the Host, Despoina
My name is Despina and I have two lovely little girls.
I love travel books, one of my favorite authors is Jan Morris and her books on Venice and Trieste.Travelling light is my motto since when you take less you bring back more in every sense of the word. I also love talking about places, people, cultures and of course food.
