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

The quaint fishing village of Finikounda (sometimes spelt ‘Finikounta’) sits in the most southerly part of the western Peloponnese, Greece. The destination has great beaches and good amenities, but unlike many other beach resorts in Greece (and Europe in general) does not become overrun by tourists during summer months. This means an enjoyable and authentic Greek holiday can be had, but with tourism on the increase in Finikounda it is suggested that you get in before the crowds arrive!

Things to do in Finikounda, Greece

The main reason that people visit Finikounda is for the magnificent beaches the area has to offer. There are three in total, the longest of which is an impressive 2km long. Although these beaches receive their fair share of tourists, the good news is that it is always possible to find your own secluded spot, even in the height of summer.

Windsurfing in Finikounda is extremely popular, and a number of well-established operators are located along the beaches. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at this energetic sport, Finikounda is the place to do it, but if you are content with just going for a swim you will find that the water is clean, clear and warm (during summer months) – ideal for families with young children.

Finikounda has good amenities, and some of the best tavernas are located near the beach and are a great place to relax and chat with a good mix of tourists and locals. The restaurants around the village continue the theme of being authentic and enjoyable without being too touristy, and are the perfect place to sample dishes of fresh, locally-caught fish such as stuffed sardines, most of which are home-made to old family recipes.

Places to visit on holiday in Finikounda, Greece

Holiday rentals in Finikounda can also be used as bases for exploring the rest of the Messinia prefecture. Pilos, 21km to the north-east, is a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors, as there are some excellent walking and hiking opportunities in the surrounding countryside. Tourist facilities have improved here in recent years, but the picturesque town centre remains true to its traditions, and there are also some impressive old landmarks to be visited.

Weather in Finikounda, Greece

In general, the weather in Finikounda is hot in summer, warm and spring and early autumn and mild during the rest of the year. If you are seeking the hottest temperatures you should book your holiday rentals in Finikounda for July or August, when peak daily temperatures are usually above 30C and can sometimes hit the 35C mark.

Flights to Finikounda, Greece

Finikounda is best reached via a flight to Kalamata International Airport (KLX), though direct flights from the UK are hard to find, and the majority of visitors will have to get a connecting flight from Athens International Airport (ATH). Finikounda is 53km from Kalamata, a journey which will take a little over an hour by rental car.

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.

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..
