families on a budget looking for sunshine & personal service
Anniska & Liakoto are simple, family-run sister boutique hotels in Kardamili, a beautiful village on the Peloponnese coastline. These rustic chic family-run self-catering studios & apartments enjoy beautiful views of Messinian Bay's crystaline waters and the Taygetos mountains. The friendly owners/managers, Ilia and Geraldine, dedicate most of their time to ensure that all guests have a pleasant stay. Their loyal customers return time and again and these apartments are perfect for family trips, romantic breaks & groups of friends alike.
Guests of both Anniska & Liakoto can enjoy use of the Liakoto freshwater outdoor pool or take a swim in the sea just in front of Anniska. The nearby village of Kardami has a great choice of tavernas, cafes and shops to enjoy.
Anniska & Liakoto share use of Liakoto's freshwater outdoor swimming pool and sundeck set amid the hotel gardens and Anniska's seafront sun terrace. Both hotels have a coffee bar and lounge - great for a refreshing cocktail or afternoon tea - with WiFi, computers, TV and books, the perfect space for meeting new friends or relaxing with a good film. The Anniska patio is full of flourishing blooms, attracting butterflies and birds and for an indulgent treat, Thai massages can be arranged for guests in their rooms during peak season.
Kardami's centre, with its picturesque stone maisonettes, is a short walk from the hotels and the area has some superb beaches and a lovely little harbour, attracting a mix of in-the-know fashionistas, yachters, romantic couples and families.
Take a walk through the mountains and olive groves and explore the rugged coastline along some well-marked walking paths.
Anniska & Liakato can organise diving trips with a local Padi instructor who has his own boat and offers tailor-made excursions & dives. The initial training can be taken in the Liakato pool.
Anniska & Liakoto are self-catering, but serve a continental breakfast in the coffee bar & lounge. The bar serves up aperitifs and they have introduced a great new selection of the best of Peloponnesian wines for the Anniska terrace bar. This year the owners have introduced what we believe to be the best selection of Peloponnesian wines in Kardami, as well as some delicious homemade meze and cakes - all served on Anniska's terrace bar. For dining out, Kardami has a good choice of tavernas and cafes.
