The home is the upper floor of a large traditional stone house with high ceilings 2 bedrooms bathroom kitchen full porch and 2 verandas. It is newly painted and renovated. A peaceful area surrounded by olive trees orange orchards and panoramic views of Mount Taygetos which lies adjacent to this village of 2000 people. Below on the first floor lives my mother.
The village lies off a major road halfway between the historic and
presently commercial center of Sparta and the beautiful seaport-
beach resort of Gythion-approximately 20 km. from each. The weather is
usually mild with a nice summer breeze blowing off the mountain which
also protects the valley from winter storms. The whole area is lush
with much greenery fresh air and delicious cool spring water.
Xirokambi is on a regular bus route with 8 stops a day from Sparta
and has many inexpensive taxis so an auto is not necessary.
many inexpensive car rental places are available in Sparta and
