Converted from a 19th-century tower, the Tainaron Blue Tower Retreat boasts some of the best views in Greece. The three-story structure is situated on the coast of the Mani Peninsula. Its original stone exterior has been restored using traditional methods to maintain an authentic look. A terrace in the same material continues the ancient aesthetic while offering guests an infinity pool overlooking the sea. Internally, the former fortress now consists of a shared kitchen, dining area, and just three suites. Modern fixtures have been integrated into the existing stone walls for added amenities without distracting from the historic character. Built to keep a watchful eye on enemies coming in from the sea, each room is afforded expansive views of the coast and the southern slope of the Taygetos mountain.
