The location is a true Hideaway with all luxury amenities, which are needed and useful for the most relaxing days of the year.
This time, we stayed for a few nights only - unfortunatelly - but surely come back.
Best time shall be off season, with Tavernes offering lots of space, fresh fish and all the hospitality, Greek are well known for.
The peakseason shall be a bit too hot for us, and yet offseason offers all: from warm weather, to excellent food and friendly people.
And year round, PEFKIDES and its owner Nancy are a great deal.
Always helpful, spportive and available any time a question would appear.
And the best:
no need to travel around the world, as this spot is just a few hours away from home.
We come back !
We had a wonderful week in October this year at Pefkides apartments. After travelling through different regions in peloponnes, this was the most comfortable and relaxing place we stayed at. Great beds from coco-mat, a famous greek luxury brand for beds etc. We loved the modern style of the apartment, the garden which has been designed with a lot of love from the owner, the pool, the tranquility - 5 mins walk to the center of Marathopoli where you have plenty of restaurants, but the kitchen is also very well equipped, just in case. The owners are very friendly, speak very good English and helped us oranize a boat trip and other discoveries. It was our "holiday-home" and we will certainly come back! **just book it and enjoy your holidays, there is no better place in the region**
Nancy and her welcoming staff, friends and family made us feel right at home in their beautiful oasis, with its sparkling pool, manicured gardens and lovely view of the ocean.
Guests really get to relax, as each apartment is serviced daily, and has a spacious, yet private balcony - perfect for catching morning rays over breakfast, after your first pool/ocean swim of the day.
There is ample packing space, and a large, comfortable bed. The apartments are well layed out, the fittings and finishes are of highend hotel quality, and there are added touches that make your stay extra special: e.g. Olive Spa Products and branded, great-smelling fluffy swimming and bathing towels given daily.
There's a sea swimming area a mere 3-minute walk away (don’t forget your aqua shoes for the rocks), and the town of Marathopoli is within a very easy walking distance.
For us, this was a holiday to remember ... and repeat!
We have just spent three nights at Pefkides with our three small children & only wish that we could have stayed for longer. Family run, Nancy & her mother are fantastic hostesses - all my email enquiries prior to arrival were quickly & helpfully responded to by Nancy & on arrival, we could not have received a warmer welcome. Throughout our stay, Nancy was always available & was brilliant at advising us on places & tavernas to visit in the local area - they even got medical advice for us when our son developed ear ache - amazing. The gated grounds are a little oasis of peace & tranquility with newly built apartments which have been beautifully done, a gorgeous pool & garden of lush grass & newly planted shrubs. The location is fantastic - it's a short walk to the sea & although the access over a few rocks mightn't be suitable for small children, the water is amazing - clean & the most beautiful blues & turquoises. Maratopoli is a few hundred metres away with a number of grocery shops, pharmacy, bakeries & lots of tavernas. Sundowners & supper watching the sunset at the taverna 'Riki' shouldn't be missed! The local beaches are also fantastic - our favourite was Lagouvardos with its sandy beach & crystal clear water. All in all, we can't wait to go back!
The Pefkides apartments are wonderful. They are small, but beautifully designed and equipped, in a stunning setting only 400m walk from the town (and Tavernas) of Marathopoli.
The property is immaculate: Beds are comfortable, pool is lovely, grounds are gorgeous (and will be more so once they become more established) and the owner (Nancy) and her family are truly wonderful hosts.
Would definitely go back.
