On a remote and rocky hillside on the Mani peninsula, a 90-minute drive south from Kalamata airport, Aria Estate is a group of 13 B&B apartments built last year. Each minimalist suite has exposed brickwork, a simple kitchenette and a terrace where the seasonal four-course breakfast is served. Afternoon tea with homemade cake and aperitifs with charcuterie and cheese is available. The fishing village of Limeni, a five-minutes drive, has a pebbly beach with clear, calm water for swimming, and tavernas. Slightly larger, hilltop Areopoli, is 10 minutes’ drive inland, with cobbled alleys, shops, cafes and historic churches.
