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.

If you charter a boat during your stay in Pilos accommodation, the options for exhilarating day trips are limitless. The islands of Hydra and Poros are within reach and offer not only staggering scenery and beautiful, untouched beaches, but also a great number of charming little village restaurants and cafes in which to relax and enjoy the best of Greek cuisine and culture.

Great vacation in charming house close to the castle of Koroni

5 of 5
We have spent three weeks in August with our 13 year old daughter in this charming house. The description is very loyal. We particularly appreciated the very well equipped kitchen. The place is very calm although it takes only 8 minutes to the center. Korani is very charming (as many Greek cities it has a lot of stairs and narrow streets). The way to the beach walking through the Venetian Castle is fantastic! Make sure you visit the nuns there. Jina and Nick provided us with a lot of great advice on beaches and restaurants that we followed. But the very best was the great view which one can enjoy from the balcony .We definetely recommend staying in this house.
