Charles, Eleanor and Lexi (and their menagerie) were very welcoming as hosts, and extremely forthcoming with help and information, without ever being intrusive. A splendid, if slightly remote, location - the ancient sites of Olympia and Messini are within striking distance, and there are fantastic beaches nearby. There's also the bonus of constant butterfly visitors to the verandah! We would definitely recommend this property.

                                                                      We are a Canadian family with 3 young children and we spent the very first week of our 4-week trip to Greece in this great villa and setting (after spending a few days in Athens). We could not have chosen a better spot to relax: this is paradise! A beautiful villa with a private beach on the Ionian Sea with a view that we will never forget. Nor will we ever forget the owners, Panos and his kind wife, who greeted us and treated us all like we were family (home-made jam in the fridge, bread, pastries and fresh fruit in the morning, treats for the kids, etc.). We had the privilege of celebrating Panos' birthday the evening we arrived, along with their best friends. Greek food, Greek music, Greek hospitality at its best! We will never forget our evening under the stars with them. We had chosen this villa to be close to ancient Olympia and we could not have chosen better! Hopefully, we will be back one day. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone wishing to spend quality time in Greece with their own private beach ( the best and most beautiful beach we swam in during our month in Greece). It is truly an amazing spot! Thank you so much to both of you. Hugs and kisses from Canada. Renee, Patrick, Laurent, Beatrice and Penelope
