The Greek Hovel is now, after eight years, complete. No longer a hovel it is a luxury eco palace with a pool operational from early June until the end of September, a massive library and all mod cons. The thick stone walls keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. If you fancy splendid isolation in the Paddy Leigh Fermor land of the Mani, it is the place to be. And it is now available for rent as you can see below.
Leaving it empty when we are not there is a criminal waste and the more people who stay he better it is for the economy of the nearest village Kambos. And before anyone suggests that we are pricing out locals, the hovel had been abandoned for many years when we bought it to restore.
There is a range of photos nowlive as the hovel is, as of today, available to rent via Airbnb HERE
But if readers want to rent it just ping me an email direct and I will knock off the Airbnb and cleaning fee. If you don’t know my email you are probably not a reader!
