Travel to Kalamata, Greece

There is an airport just 7 km away from your cosy self catering accommodation in Kalamata, but due to a lack of connections with the UK, we are going to suggest Athens Airport (ATH), which is just over a 2 hour drive from the area.

Depart the UK from airports such as London Gatwick (LGW), Luton (LTN), Manchester (MAN) and Edinburgh (EDI).

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.

The views across Kalamata, by day and by night, are amazing. To get those views, you are high up and can't just pop out to the local Taverna or supermarket, if you fancy! We found the entrance to the property challenging on day 1, but soon realised it was best to turn around above the villa and then drive in on a right turn; also best to reverse out! A car is essential (unless you just want to lounge around and read). The area is wonderful and we visited most of the ancient sites in the Peloponnese, finding plenty of entertainment on the Greek roads! Our hosts were available if required but unobtrusive, and offered good advice about our holiday plans. An excellent venue!

It is incredibly quiet there and very picturesque. The cottage itself is very tastefully furnished and has everything you need. We did need the mosquito net and plenty of repellent! It was extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. I loved making use of the hammock on the patio every afternoon. There are lots of tavernas in Chrani and two supermarkets. If you like the beach there are several areas to choose from along the coast road and if you like antiquities you are spoilt for choice. There are lovely ports with castles such as Koroni and Methoni; Messini and Nestor's Palace (archaeological sites) are within fairly easy driving distance. There is a lovely nature reserve not too far away where we saw flamingos and birds of prey. The whole area was delightful, with olive groves on green grass everywhere. I would highly recommend the property and the area.
