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.

Also very close to lovely beaches only about 5-10 mins in the car. Overall a great place to stay. We are defo going to be going there again.

Set in the grounds of Koroni Castle, the house is a haven of peace and quiet. The design of the garden is excellent. Several sitting areas have been created, all with different views of the garden and surroundings. We had meals in the garden during the day, and sat and watched the stars at night. The house is compact but has everything you need. Good wifi, great views and only a 5 minute walk (quite steep) to the town and harbour, where loads of good restaurants and interesting shops await. The town itself is a complete joy to visit, with good seafood and classic Greek cuisine in the tavernas. We enjoyed our week in Koroni so much that we hope to visit again one day and would certainly stay at Jina's idyllic cottage again - definitely recommended!
