RUGA VAMVAKOU HOMES

 

Greece,  Peloponnese,  Lakonia,  Vamvakou Village


Hotel-Ruga-Vamvakous-1

One more neighborhood of the village is being revived in the village of Vamvakou, where three old traditional houses have been transformed into a new guesthouse “Ruga Homes of Vamvakou”, thanks to an exclusive grant by Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) as part of the Vamvakou Revival initiative.


Rooms of particular decoration and aesthetics make up an ideal heaven, away from the intense rhythms of the city. Traditional houses with large windows, view over the forest, fireplace or wood-burning stove, handmade wooden furniture, balconies, big yards, flowers and trees bring back to mind the old neighborhoods of villages, rouges, bustling with life! The Ruga of Vamvakou will be of the same sort; a meeting point for all those who dream of an escape to one of the most beautiful and alternative destinations in the Peloponnese, eager to live carefree, relaxing moments in an inspiring and refreshing ambience, ideal for living, working and creating.


The rooms bear the names of women of Vamvakou, taken from the past! Marigo, Vgena, Stamo, Tsevoula, Annio and Potoula dress up and are inviting you in their place so that you can get to know the authentic Greek hospitality of the countryside. Stay with us in the neighborhood and become one of us for a short while, to experience the village, life in the countryside and the Revival.

Vamvakou Village

The village of Vamvakou is a really beautiful village located in Greece Laconia at the foot of Mount Parnon at an altitude of about 950 m. Its location is very close to Tripoli and Sparta. The village is literally located between walnuts, chestnuts and plane trees.


The area is often visited by mountaineering clubs as the area has two of the best shelters which are accessible by specially designed paths in the lush mountain forest. Hikers can also visit the Holy Monastery of Agia Kyriaki which has been declared a protected historical monument.


The village of Vamvakous is adorned by the huge plane tree and acacias in the picturesque square, the beautiful stone church, picturesque cafe, the monument in honor of the Vamvakites who died heroically during the German Occupation and the busts of the benefactors of the village. The houses of the village are mostly built, preserved and restored in the same traditional line maintaining the old charm.
