Here in Zarouchla you will feel that life runs like in a forgotten place and time is nothing but a word...
Not really nostalgic, but this is greece as you still can find it far away from the tourists places and big cities.
Have a walk and enjoy the unique atmosphere of this little village with its old stone-houses, big green gardens and fantastic old trees by the creek. Even today the Peloponnesos offers the old way of hospitality and "filoxenia" the greeks are famous for.
Nevertheless you also will find some modern guesthouses and tavernas with all modern comfort you may need.
