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.

                                                                                                      Just arrived back home from a fantastic weeks stay at this gorgeous property - Vasilis the owner is without doubt the best host I have ever experienced - the perfect blend of helpful without being ever present - he's simply a phonecall or a text away if needed. The chances are though once you have found your bearings then you'll need for nothing - The house has everything - superbly equipped through-out. Great for one big family or 2 separate families as each level of the house is fully self contained with its own sitting room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms (one with ensuite) and a family bathroom and all wonderfully clean. Outside is perfect - another kitchen for preparing drinks and food for the massive BBQ (buy some lamb chops from the butchers in town - very good) with a separate shower/toilet room by the pool area to save you going inside. 2 pools perfect for the adults and the little ones (we had a 2 year old in our party) - with seating area's that make the most of the sun and indeed the shady areas to cool off - all sourrounded by lovely gardens and a vegetable plot growing tomatoes, onions and aubergines for you to enjoy. If you want a relaxing holiday and to unwind then this is the place - you need to venture out if you don't want to. If you do then the village of Petalidi is a 10-15 min stroll away or a very short hop in a taxi (3 euro's) with a taxi rank in the village for your return... Its a charming village to, with plenty of restaurants, most of which centre around the square which comes alive with Greek families in the evenings. 50 Metres from the house is a pebble beach, great for an afternoon dip in the Med..... Not that we ventured away from the house much as it had all we needed to be able to soak up the sun and relax. Thanks again Vasilis we had a fantastic holiday......... Oh forgot too - he even has 2 bikes at the property, so if like us, you didn't hire a car (we got there by private transfer) these are perfect for those quick dashes for more beer/water from the supermarket...... Like I said.... you'll be hard pushed to find something you need at the house that Vasilis hasn't thought about.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

House is very spacious with some great views from the porch and balcony, it also has terrace in the rooftop which is great for relaxing and watching sunset. It has its own entry to the beach which is very nice with clear water. It can get crowded especially during weekends but during the week its calmer. House has a very nice rustic charm and the owners were very nice. It can get hot during the nights because there is no AC but they have some cooling fans and if u air the house before going to sleep its manageable. Would recommend.
