THE ARK They came to Noah's ark "two-by-two" and so most people arrive at The Ark in Ancient Phigaleia, two for each of two self-contained rooms. They are ideal for anyone seeking to exchange a crowded modern lifestyle for a taste of a simpler way of life in a small rural community. Nestling on a mountainside above the Neda gorge, The Ark is surrounded by a terraced garden littered with archaeology and an amazing range of plant life. It is also visited by a flock of sheep and has "resident" cats and dogs. Chill out under an olive tree or sit on the communal balcony and enjoy fantastic views.
