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

Rien à redire sur la propreté, la maison et ses terrasses sont très bien entretenues (point de rats !!). L'accueil est chaleureux, et Stavroula prend soin d'indiquer de précieux conseils pratiques. Nous y avons passé un excellent séjour, et c'est une location que nous recommandons.

It had everything we needed and met the high standards required for the 3 of us plus my mother and mother-in law! There was more than enough room for everyone to have their own space when needed. George was really helpful and gave us tips for shopping etc. We did not venture very far but made the most of the beach 10 mins away and of course the beautiful pool and shady veranda with sofa and stunning views. The master bedroom and bathroom are especially luxurious and felt like a boutique hotel - I have begun my research into my own coco-mat mattress - so comfortable! We really didn't want to leave and are already talking about "next time".
