Dear traveler, welcome to this hidden gem, to the Teacher's house

The teacher's house is located at Kefalovryso village , Peloponnese, mainland Greece in a very short distance from Athens (1.5h drive) and other nearby touristy places.
This village was abandoned at the decade of 60's when the most of Greeks that period became economic refugees.
It used to be more than 500 residents but now are only 24.

Three years ago a non profit environmental intercultural organization called ; 'grecopaths.org' came at the village rented the central building of the village, renovated it and transformed it , into the '1st house of Greek food'. It is a kind of local restaurant , that promotes the authentic Greek cuisine and helps, three families of the village, who own farms with goats, sheep and several crops, buying from them their products.
With this way they support their income and motivates them to continue their hard work which is so precious nowadays.

Τhis was the first step to give live to the village.The second step came when volunteers of this organization cleaned the first houses of the village that most of them they are country houses of locals, so visitors can stay over night to this small piece of earth paradise.

One of these houses is the Teacher's home.We name it like this because it was residence of a teacher who use to teach to the primary school of the village when children were at the decades of 60's.
At present this house belongs to his son who wishes to see the village that he grow up alive again and much more his paternal home.

As you saw from pictures it is ready the first floor to accommodate 3 people and more on request.Soon the ground floor will be ready to accommodate more visitors.

This house is ideal during Summer , Autumn and Spring time.Winter it gets really cold since it is located at 750 altitude.

It can be used as a base of your vacation in Peloponnese.Here are distances from nearby touristy destinations:
