A trip featuring authentic Maniote hospitality!
Like a natural extension of the area where it is located the 4 **** ITILO TRADITIONAL HOTEL projects from the center of a sheltered bay near Neo Oitylo in Southern Greece¢s Mani region. It is built on the waves making it which makes it possible for visitors to experience unique moments of relaxation. The visitor will not just stare out into the sea but can also hear it during those calm moments.
The ITILO TRADITIONAL HOTEL was rebuilt with a harmonious blend of local rock, wood and steel in order to create a hotel of simple, unpretentious luxury which blends perfectly with the surrounding Maniote landscape. But this does not mean that the needs of the modern traveler have been neglected. Factors such as the impressive candlelit hallways, the comfortable rooms with their verandas overlooking the sea, the restaurant serving traditional Maniote cuisine and the uninterrupted presence of the Alevra family have all contributed to the special features that make the hotel so accommodating.
The ITILO TRADITIONAL HOTEL is the ideal place that will ensure a comfortable stay and discrete service, all just a few meters away from the sea.
Welcome to authentic Maniote hospitality!
THE ALEVRAS FAMILY
The Alevras family is a typical Maniote family which will help you feel the familial surroundings and the cozy hospitality of the ITILO TRADITIONAL HOTEL from the very first moment of your stay.
Nick, the eldest member of the third-generation of hoteliers, will welcome you at the reception area and will offer you fresh juice and coffee and help you unwind from your trip. Later on, he will escort you to your room and will be willing to answer any questions you may have at any given moment during your stay.
Subsequently, you will also meet Theodoros, the “family patriarch” the person responsible for managing and operating the ITILO TRADITIONAL HOTEL. He will make the best recommendations to you so as to ensure that you have a good time throughout your holiday. He will share the secrets of Mani with you and the everyday life of the locals, its customs and traditions.
The ladies of the family play a special role. Mrs. Sophia is one of the founding members of the ITILO TRADITIONAL HOTEL and Mrs. Panagiota is Theodoros’ wife. After carefully seleciing all the ingredients according to strict criteria, from small, local producers and from their private farm, the ladies of the family prepare all the meals according to the traditional Greek, and particularly Maniote, diet. Every day, they prepare a different culinary surprise for everyone who loves good food.
Maria and Achilles, the youngest members of the third generation, welcome our youngest friends. They teach them the secrets of the sea such as how to collect crabs and small mollusks from the rocks, collect shells from the sand and many other activities that children who live in the countryside know better. In the evenings, they go to the family farm to collect eggs that will be served the following morning.
