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.

We were pleasantly surprised with the good standard and range of equipment in both properties. We were also very impressed with George, who came out at 9pm on Saturday evening in the middle of heavy rain to deal with a problem with the electricity. It was good to find some books to read as the weather wasn't always sunny. The location of the villas is good, but once off the main road the route is mostly rough and would benefit from being improved. That said, we had no problem driving up there, even during and after heavy rain. One of the villas had a washing machine for which there was no manual, and some of the controls were worn so it wasn't easy to work out how it worked. There was a manual - for a different washing machine - but this was only in Greek so would not have helped. Other information about the properties, contact details etc. was provided in English and it would be good to have instructions for electrical items in English too. These are small things that didn't stop our families having a good time staying in the villas, but they could make the experience even better.

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.

It is incredibly quiet there and very picturesque. The cottage itself is very tastefully furnished and has everything you need. We did need the mosquito net and plenty of repellent! It was extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. I loved making use of the hammock on the patio every afternoon. There are lots of tavernas in Chrani and two supermarkets. If you like the beach there are several areas to choose from along the coast road and if you like antiquities you are spoilt for choice. There are lovely ports with castles such as Koroni and Methoni; Messini and Nestor's Palace (archaeological sites) are within fairly easy driving distance. There is a lovely nature reserve not too far away where we saw flamingos and birds of prey. The whole area was delightful, with olive groves on green grass everywhere. I would highly recommend the property and the area.
