The owners and Saskia made us feel very welcome. The surroundings of Villa Feia are beautiful, with the ocean sounds, private garden, swimming pool and sandy beaches very nearby. The house is also beautiful and well maintained by the owners. You can see the love the have put in this place. Also, everything you need is available (kitchen utensils, clean towels and bedsheets etc..). If you need tips and advice for daily trips or good food, ask Saskia or the owners Anna and Panos. They now the area by heart. Make sure to visit Olympia. We loved driving around, visiting small beaches en and having diner in local restaurants and tavernes. Couldn't have a better honeymoon. Anna, Panos and Saskia, thanks for your great hospitality!

A beautiful location with stunning panoramic views of the most beautiful valley to the Sea. Perfect rooftop apartment and terrace, everything that our family needed and wonderfully looked after by Gabi and Ed. Ideally located for visits to Messene, Olympia, Pylos and exploring the hills and nearby temples. Stunning beach (and Seagull beach bar) only 5 minutes away and choice of excellent tavernas nearby. Can recommend to all for a great holiday in a beautiful and undiscovered part of Greece.

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.
