Make a holiday rental home or villa in Chrani, Greece your home away from home

The peaceful destination of Chrani is an excellent option for anyone that would like to get away from it all, and visit an authentic Greek village that is off the radar of the vast majority of tourists. The surrounding area, known as the Peloponnese, is surprisingly green, and offers plenty for those seeking a hiking and walking break. With a good beach, clear waters and a number of amenities that belie the village’s small size, holiday rental accommodation in Chrani is the ideal place to recharge the batteries and experience ‘real’ Greece.

Things to do in Chrani, Greece

The hills that surround Chrani provide good hiking and walking opportunities, with spring a particularly good time of the year for these activities as a huge range of flora and fauna start to emerge during this season. Horse riding is also an available option, and will allow you cover a larger distance and take in stunning mountain views as you get higher up. The dense greenery and olive groves of the Messinia region are what makes it one of the most beautiful areas in the whole of Greece.

Voidokilia Beach is a popular spot with both those looking to sunbathe and water sports enthusiasts. Snorkelling and scuba diving are particularly popular, and swimming is a great way of cooling off during the hot summer months. When it comes to evening entertainment, despite Chrani’s relatively small size there are a number of good quality restaurants to choose from, each cooking up traditional Greek dishes such as Lamb Kleftiko and Souvlaki, all washed down with locally-made wine.

There is much to see and do just a short distance from Chrani, and although public transport is sometimes an option, the use of a rental car is the best way of getting around. Just a short drive from Chrani are lakes, waterfalls, ancient sites of interest, castles and many secluded coves and beaches, far away from the tourist crowds.

The Villa is in a pleasant village and just a short walk to a good long beach (part sand, part pebbles) with a lovely view across to the Mani peninsula A taxi ride from the airport, we happily spent a week there with two toddlers, without any need for a car. The food in Chrani was excellent; the restaurants served delicious Greek home cooking and the people were friendly and welcoming. Bonita, the owner, could not have been more helpful. Besides arranging for the taxi from the airport, she ensured we had everything we needed for a pleasant stay, from a new drying rack for bathing suits to excellent advice about the local restaurants and shops. We enjoyed breakfast (and often lunch) sitting around the table on the veranda overlooking the garden, with the convenience of the outside kitchen area. Every morning we fetched freshly baked bread and locally grown fruit (grapes and melon) from the nearby shop. In between naps and visits to the beach, the children played happily in the garden area. The beach was lovely, the water crystal clear. There are showers at the exits to wash off the salt. We twice walked along it after swimming to the Caribbean bar for an enjoyable lunch right behind the beach. The Villa is clean and comfortable, with a quirky layout of the bedrooms, which is part of its charm. Two of the bedrooms are cooled by fans, the third bedroom has air conditioning and an ensuite bathroom which provides its only window. If you plan to be there without a car, then it’s useful to know that there is no ATM in Chrani. All in all we had a highly enjoyable stay at Villa Kefi, in a friendly Greek atmosphere.

Our thanks to Fiona & Nigel for the many little touches that made this holiday homely, warm and personal. We had a great time again! The accommodation is set in a beautiful and peaceful olive grove on the side of a hill overlooking Navarino Bay. Its only a short walk down to the waters edge. The apartments are comfortable and well equipped; including a kitchen on the balcony for al-fresco cooking and eating, and a wide selection of books for those, who want to relax with a glass of wine and a good story. There is also a lovely garden and patio with a swimming pool. Perfect for a midnight swim! We looked at the stars every night and watched meteor showers in the dark night skies. (Not much light pollution here!) Everything had been arranged smoothly and we felt the welcome and the friendliness of everyone we met. The area has a lot to offer; unspoiled coastal towns with clean beaches and clean water, good food and drink and wall-to-wall sunshine. We ate out in local restaurants nearly every night! It is not expensive and the food and wine are locally produced and freshly cooked. The scenery is stunning, and the water is crystal clear, great for snorkelling, or even scuba diving which you can try from the local scuba shop in Pylos under the watchful eye of Nicos. You can also hire boats from there, which we did for a day, and went to exlplore the bay and the islands. Most days we tried a different beach. The kids enjoyed collecting pebbles which we then painted and decorated …. We also liked going to local villages and towns, especially Gialova and Pylos; both picturesque and lively, full of restaurants and some entertaining local music and events. No doubt that we will return again. Hopefully next year..

The views across Kalamata, by day and by night, are amazing. To get those views, you are high up and can't just pop out to the local Taverna or supermarket, if you fancy! We found the entrance to the property challenging on day 1, but soon realised it was best to turn around above the villa and then drive in on a right turn; also best to reverse out! A car is essential (unless you just want to lounge around and read). The area is wonderful and we visited most of the ancient sites in the Peloponnese, finding plenty of entertainment on the Greek roads! Our hosts were available if required but unobtrusive, and offered good advice about our holiday plans. An excellent venue!
