Located at the southernmost tip of the Mani peninsula, in the picturesque village of Gerolimenas, 23-key Kyrimai is exactly what we like our chilled-out, grown-up hideouts to look like. Viewed from the azure Aegean waters, the converted 19th-century farmhouse is backed by craggy cliffs, its grounds peppered with wild herbs and pine trees. Inside, calming interiors are characterised by metre-thick walls, dark wood and dry stone, with whitewashed and wicker furniture lending a contemporary finish. The beauty of this property is that it's full of surprises. Wander down winding staircases and weave through maze-like passageways, stumble upon sun-bleached courtyards and dance along the private pier, before snagging a sunny lounging spot. Food is very much a love letter to the fertile land, with homemade dips, spinach-stuffed pies, local meats and fish plucked straight from the ocean all served beneath an airy, sea-facing pergola.
