Join us for a… “Ruga in Vamvakou”! Ruga in Greek means neighbourhood or road and in the past the word was used to symbolize the gathering of the neighbours or the gossiping.
The experience of visitors in Vamvakou is now complemented by Ruga of Vamvakou Homes. Close to the clock tower square, one more neighbourhood of the village is being revived, where three old traditional houses have been recently transformed into a new guesthouse, thanks to an exclusive grant by Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) as part of the Vamvakou Revival initiative.
The rooms bear the names of women of Vamvakou, taken from the past! Marigo, Vgena, Stamo, Tsevoula, Annio and Potoula dress up and are inviting you in their place so that you can get to know the authentic Greek hospitality of the countryside. Stay with us in the neighbourhood and become one of us for a short while, to experience the village, life in the countryside and the Revival.
Rooms of particular decoration and aesthetics make up an ideal haven, away from the intense rhythms of the city. Traditional houses with large windows, view over the forest, fireplace or wood-burning stove, handmade wooden fur-niture, covered balconies, big yards, flowers and trees bring back to mind the old neighbourhoods of villages, rouges, bustling with life! The Ruga of Vamvakou will be of the same sort; a meeting point for all those who dream of an escape to one of the most beautiful and alternative destinations in the Peloponnese, eager to live carefree, relaxing moments in an inspiring and refreshing ambience, ideal for living, working and creating.
