The setting of the little villas is amazing, the interior is nice and its a very beautiful place with friendly hosts. The only bad thing was the water supply. So few days in the morniing and evening there was no water running, which mad it quite difficult having two little kids with us and we got upset about it. Also the long dirt road to the place is not in a good shape. The kidspool was out of water too. If all get fixed we would come back again!
Its a beatiful villa. Very nice people of the complex who a very friendly. It has a Nice swimmingpool where you can relax and it has a beatifull vieuw of Gialova. We can recommend you this villa. Its clean and very nice to stay there. Realy relaxing! You need to have a car so you can see the different lovely beaches. We went to the waterfalls and to Messine. We booked for 1 week.
Villa is perfect if you want to relax and escape away from city noise / traffic. Each villa has its own private balcony (large one) and there is also a nice shared area for breakfast/lunch. Stephane and Laure-Anne are great hosts and they are readily available to assist and accommodate any request. Only drawbacks: 1. one of the beds i slept could have a slightly better mattress but the double couch/bed was great! 2. the street towards to the villa is not well maintained and you need to be cautious as google maps might even make you approach it from an even tougher path - where you will need a 4x4 car ! thank you for the excellent welcome guys! we enjoyed it!
This place is idyllic and beautiful. The hosts are fantastic, relaxed and attentive and their little collection of villas around a pool is excellent for a couple like us, or a family trip. It is close enough to Gialova for easy access with a car, and the beautiful town of Pylos is also within easy reach for a nice dinner out. There is lots to do in the surrounding area: not to be missed are things such as the waterfall wild swimming spot at Polylimnio, the amazing beach of Voidikilia, and hiring a boat from Pylos to explore the bay.
I just returned from a week spent in this lovely vacation villa overlooking Navarino Bay in Greece, and I can't wait to return! The Peloponnese in springtime was gorgeous! Hosts Laure-Anne and Stephane were charming and saw that every need was quickly met, including delivery of thirty eggs to hard-boil and dye for Easter!
The Residence is on a hillside surrounded by olive groves, so it is private and quiet, but quite near more public activities. A ten minute walk among olive and citrus groves leads to the beach and the little village of Gialova, and the ancient town of Pylos is just 4 miles away. The ruins of the palace of King Nestor (of Iliad fame) is located just 15 minutes away, as is the famous omega-shaped beach of Voidokilia. Other UNESCO World Heritage sites are within one to two hours' drive. I am not a golfer, but I was told the two nearby golf courses are highly rated. Navarino Bay was the site of many naval battles in the 1820s during the Greek Revolution, and sunken ships of allied forces tempt scuba divers to explore.
The Residence itself includes a lovely infinity pool, private terraces with hammocks and lounge chairs for relaxing for each of the five villas, public lounge and sunbathing areas, and gorgeous landscaping, including orange and olive trees, lavender beds, other herbs, and bougainvillea vines. Indoor and outdoor dining areas are available with each fully-equipped villa. There is no light pollution, so the night skies are spectacular, and the views of the olive and citrus groves on the hills and valleys are beautiful. The two larger villas have outdoor jacuzzis, which friends kindly shared with us to enjoy on the full-moon nights. There are many gravel roads to hike in the hills and olive groves in the area, and I am very tempted to rent a mountain bike on my next visit to explore them, as I saw many tourists doing during my stay. I'm already searching my calendar to see when I can come back for another visit in this delightful part of the world.
