Make a holiday rental villa or holiday property in Messinia, Greece your home away from home

Messinia (Messenia) is a prefecture of Greece on the eastern side of the Peloponnese, neighboured by the impressive Mount Taygetus to the west. Messinia is not usually on the tourist route through the Peloponnese, but not for lack of facilities and points of interest. The prefecture has glorious beaches, dramatic fortresses and charming coastal towns and villages, perfect for romantic holidays to Messinia.

Things to do on holiday in Messinia, Greece

The beaches which line the coastline of Messinia are second to none. Golden sands create a boundary between the turquoise waters of the Gulf and the beautiful landscape of the Peloponnese, and due to the relatively unknown status of Messinia, there are never crowds or fights over spots on the beach.

Along the coast, there are many small villages and large, well preserved castles, where flower covered cobbled streets lead down to ancient harbours and little beaches, meaning that Messinia has gained a reputation as a romantic holiday destination. There is a really refreshing atmosphere and pace of life in Messinia which is extremely relaxing, as you never feel the need to rush anywhere!

Messinia, like much of the Peloponnese, has an extraordinary wealth of archaeological treasures to be explored. The ancient cities of Messene and Olympia and the vast caves and Byzantine monasteries which are to be found across the countryside make for perfect sightseeing trips from a holiday rental property in Messinia.

Places to holiday in Messinia, Greece

Stoupa is one of the most exciting beach resorts in Messinia, recently having greatly increased its tourist facilities. Everything you could wish for from a beach holiday is provided in Stoupa, including over 20 restaurants, serving both traditional cuisine and international dishes.

Koroni lies at the head of the bay, and like Stoupa, has become a favourite with British and German tourists, although it is still relatively quiet. Standing in the shadow of an impressive Venetian Castle, Koroni has the great appeal of having a little of everything. You can spend a lazy day on the beaches or wandering the streets looking at some of the fine monuments around the town, and enjoy the lively nightlife as the sun sets.

The picturesque town of Agios Nikolaos sits on the side of a ‘bottomless’ lake, which was connected to the sea in 1867 to help stop the water becoming stagnant. The surrounding countryside is perfect for walkers as there are some delightful view points to be found as well as many points of interest.

Finikounda is a perfect location to take a rental property for a romantic holiday in Messinia. It is a small fishing village with access to three glorious beaches, and brimming with Greek personality.

Weather in Messinia, Greece

Messinia shares a similar climate to Athens, with slightly warmed conditions throughout the year, averaging around 32˚C in summer and 10˚C in the winter. However, snow cover is common on the peaks of Mount Taygetus during the winter months.

Fabulous Villa

5 of 5
This villa is absolutely stunning and perfectly designed. The view out of the main window in the morning is beautiful and you can watch the sun set whilst sitting on the verandah in the evening. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and there is an outdoor oven and BBQ. The decor is stunning and all the bedrooms have a beautiful view. The pool gets the sun all day. The local restaurants are very cheap and the food is excellent. There are 2 big supermarkets within a 10 minute drive. The owner of the villa Judy is lovely. She was there when we arrived and showed us everything we needed and gave us lots of ideas about where to go. Judy also went above and beyond the call of duty when one of our party was bitten by a spider - she drove us to the hospital and luckily is fluent in Greek, so she ensured we were seen quickly. We're already planning a return trip next year!

An amazing holiday

5 of 5
We had a super holiday at the Olive Grove. It is in a very relaxing location with great views and excellent hosts who help to give you the feel of the real Greece. They were very kind and generous. Aris has made a very good folder with ideas of the best visitor attractions in the area which was very useful. There are some amazing castles, plenty of lovely beaches all within an hours drive. Petalidi is also a lovely village with a superb Friday morning market. Thankyou very much, we will be encouraging all our friends and family to book the Olive Grove
