The community of Papadianika belongs to the Municipality of Monemvasia, in the Province of Epidavros Limira, and is a rural area full of olive groves. The beautiful Kefalochori village exudes a solid traditional feeling strongly reflected in the stone-built Primary School, built in 1956. There, you can find shops, supermarkets, a pharmacy, a National Bank ATM, a bakery, and a tavern, covering all the needs of travelers who choose this quiet place of Laconia for their holidays.

Just 3 km away is the Pachia Ammos beach of Plytra, which is extremely popular with families, with shallow turquoise waters and fine sand with pink shades. It is an organized beach with umbrellas and sunbeds, but there is also a large spot for those who want to be more independent. Yachts and fishing boats adorn the bay, while a dilapidated house almost in the water is the trademark of the beach, the first house built in Plytra, by the Venetsanaki family, long before 1870.
