Petra & Fos Boutique Hotel in Mani Greece

I recently spent a weekend with my fiance in one of my favorite areas in Greece, Mani. We stayed in Petra & Fos Boutique Hotel located in the traditional seaside village of Oitilo in the region of Mani, in Southern Peloponnese. The hotel is situated at the foot of mountain Taygetos and enjoys unobstructed views of Oitilo gulf.

The hotel’s name translates into stone & light. It is built according to the local architecture, with elements of wood and stone so that it’s in complete harmony with the landscape. It features 23 rooms and suites, all with sea views.

We arrived at our hotel after a three & a half hour drive from Athens. Parking wasn’t a problem as the hotel offers free protected parking. We received a warm welcome from the reception staff, who checked us in very quickly and explained all the facilities available within the hotel. We were then escorted to our room, which was a comfort double room located on the ground floor. A welcome plate of fresh fruit was waiting for us in the room which was a nice gesture.

The room was very spacious and combined the contemporary luxury with the traditional Mani aesthetics. The elements of wood and stone prevailed in the space. It featured a king size bed with a very comfortable mattress, luxurious white linen and a selection of pillows. Other room amenities include a writing desk, a mini bar with reasonable prices, a mini safe, an LCD TV, an air-condition and free wifi.

Our room also had a balcony with a seating area from where we were able to enjoy a view of the sea.

As soon as we settled in the room, we went to explore the hotel’s outdoor areas. We found a beautiful patio with a seating area and one of the most beautiful swimming pools I have seen surrounded by luxurious lounges and umbrellas. We immediately changed into our swimsuits and enjoyed a refreshing swim with the most fantastic views of Oitilo gulf.

In the morning, we enjoyed an extensive breakfast buffet which included a variety of pastries, cakes, fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurt, cheese, ham and a selection of cooked food. Also, an inclusive a la carte menu with local flavors was available to order.

One of the hotel’s advantages is its location as Oitilo is the ideal starting point to explore the areas of Lakonia and Messinia.
