The Byzantino Boutique Hotel in Monemvasia, Greece

A number of years ago my husband and I spent a night at the Byzantino Boutique Hotel in the fortress of Monemvasia, Greece. Instead of the usual day trip to Monemvasia, we wanted to experience the romantic medieval ambience of the Byzantino Boutique Hotel and the magic of Monemvasia after dark. We felt transported back in time amidst the charm of the old stone buildings, cobblestone alleyways, antique furnishings, and slow pace of life. Our overnight stay was an unforgettable experience that we plan to repeat on our next trip back to Peloponnese.
