Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Pilos, Greece your home away from home

The village of Pilos lies on the Peloponnese coast in Greece, surrounded by stunning scenery of dramatic coastlines and lush hills that are an absolute dream for anyone with a penchant for peace and natural beauty. The area is steeped in folklore, and there can be few places where the sense of being in ‘real Greece’ could be stronger.

Things to do in Pilos, Greece

The beaches of the Peloponnese coast are famous for their hugely picturesque appearance, clear waters and fine sand, and the beaches of Pilos will certainly not disappoint. Voidokilia Beach is said to be one of the most beautiful in the whole of Europe, and there is a huge amount of competition, and can be reached in just minutes from a self catering Pilos villa just 2km away. Water sports absolutely thrive in the region, with the warm, clear Mediterranean waters providing the ideal conditions for swimming, scuba diving, sailing, deep sea fishing, wind surfing, water skiing and occasionally, surfing.

A holiday rental property in Pilos is set right beside the famous Gialova Lagoon, which provides a temporary home to over 270 species of bird during the migration. The lagoon is an absolute treasure for wildlife lovers, as there is an extensive maze of trails to take, on foot, by bicycle or on horse back, taking you through the best places to see birdlife as well as some of the most scenic spots anywhere along the coast. There are a huge range of market trails emanating in every direction from Pilos accommodation, leading along the dramatic coastline as well as inland into the lush hills and beyond, into the beautiful Taygetos Mountains.

With a region so steeped in folklore, there are a handful of amazing sites worth exploring on any Pilos holiday. The stunning towns of Methoni and Koroni are just a few miles along the coast, and the site of Ancient Olympia is wonderfully accessible, but it is the legends that surround King Nestor that really interest visitors. Supposedly born in the village, the sensational ruins of Nestor’s Palace and Nestor’s Cave are certainly worth further investigation.

We were pleasantly surprised with the good standard and range of equipment in both properties. We were also very impressed with George, who came out at 9pm on Saturday evening in the middle of heavy rain to deal with a problem with the electricity. It was good to find some books to read as the weather wasn't always sunny. The location of the villas is good, but once off the main road the route is mostly rough and would benefit from being improved. That said, we had no problem driving up there, even during and after heavy rain. One of the villas had a washing machine for which there was no manual, and some of the controls were worn so it wasn't easy to work out how it worked. There was a manual - for a different washing machine - but this was only in Greek so would not have helped. Other information about the properties, contact details etc. was provided in English and it would be good to have instructions for electrical items in English too. These are small things that didn't stop our families having a good time staying in the villas, but they could make the experience even better.

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.
