The Kyrimai Hotel is located in the Mani region of the Peloponnese, famed for its Byzantine churches, charming fishing villages and rugged landscapes.
The hotel has just 22 bedrooms and suites, built in what was once a 19th century customs house and associated buildings built right on the water's edge. Needless to say no two rooms are alike but all are stylishly done up with exposed stonework on show and eclectic antique furniture and working fireplaces throughout.
Breakfasts are served on the decking overlooking the sea, and the restaurant - in the old customs warehouse - is overseen by Michelin-starred chef Yiannis Baxevanis, who celebrates and updates classical Greek dishes such as shrimp risotto sagnaki with feta cheese and basil.
The hotel is in the lovely Mani region of the Peloponnese, and within easy reach of several pretty villages and medieval towers and churches. The hotel is also near the southern tip of the Tainaro peninsula, where the Ionian Sea meets the Aegean.
