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 53km from Kalamata, a journey which will take a little over an hour by rental car.

Even making a stop so we could stock up on groceries.The house is as described, very comfortable and functional. The view is fantastic and nothing beats waking up to the dawn over the sea and far mountains. We loved swimming in the beautiful sea, especially near the cliffs at Zaga Beach and sometimes at the beach at the far end of town. We stayed two weeks and became regulars at Kaggalarios fish restaurant and the Break-Time coffee shop. Nice folks, very warm. As we didn't have a car, we were pleased by the well stocked grocery, complete with fresh veg and and very good butcher and deli counter. A visit or two to the castle and the monastery is a must. All in all a lovely laid back holiday. Thank you!

La casa è super attrezzata, non manca nulla! In più ogni giorno trovavamo frutta e verdura fresca raccolta direttamente dagli alberi dei proprietari. Vista spettacolare sul mare, immersi fra gli olivi in una pace paradisiaca a 5 minuti dal centro di Petalidi, un paesetto tranquillo sul mare fornito di tutto il necessario: mercato di frutta e verdura di stagione ogni venerdì, prodotti locali, ristorantini, bar e quant'altro uno necessiti. Spiagge di sabbia bellissime, attrezzate e non, nelle vicinanze, città antiche e siti archeologici mozzafiato a pochi minuti di macchina...insomma una vacanza veramente completa e soddisfaciente sotto più punti di vista. L'accoglienza è stata a dir poco amorevole; due persone meravigliose, Anna e Kosta che abitano a pochi metri; sempre disponibili e accoglienti; nostro figlio, quando giocava in giardino, andava spesso a trovarli instaurando quasi naturalmente un rapporto di nonno/nipote molto dolce...devo dire che rimarranno a lungo impressi nei nostri cuori e ricordi. La consiglio vivamente a chi cerca una vacanza riposante immersa nella storia e natura. Giovanni
