Christos and Maria made our trip VERY nice. We were only going to stay in Xiropagado for two nights, but we ended up staying for seven because we found the town so nice and we got soooo much help from Christos. He helped us with everything from directions to great places, to assistance with changing out arrangements with the rental car agency.
Xiropagado is a very small town located right on the sea. It was quite easy to take day trips from there to Sparta/Mystras, Epidavros/Nafplio, and other places on the Peloponese. It only took us a little less than two hours to get there and it was EASY to find his place, which is right on the main road of the little town.
We were thinking of taking a trip to the islands, so Christos got on the phone and found us a good trip...a nice day-long journey to Hyda and Spetses. I know we would have found it much more difficult to figure out if we had to do it on our own. He made the arrangements and then gave us excellent direction to the touring company. It was so smooth compared to my own planning efforts!
In Xiropagado we met lots of nice people. I think we ate at every place in town! Each day, we asked Christos where to go and he would give us great advice.
If you are looking for a Greek/Peloponnese vacation that is AWAY from the western tourist locations, but close enough to get everywhere, I truly recommend Christos and his wonderful inn.
I want to keep writing because I appreciated Christos and Maria so much, but you probably get the idea by now....a bit TEN!
Maria and Christos are very friendly hosts and the rooms are small but spotless clean. A nice view to the sea from a big balkony is an additinal pro.
Cons are an invasion of mosquitos in the evening. As the doors and windows have no mosquito-shutters you may pass a hard night even using the small electric repellent which is provided. Over all we found the hotel a bit worn and outdated.
You find much better rooms with modern amenities for the same price, if you ask locally as most of them are not used to internet-bookings.
