The stretch of coast between Kyparissia and Pyrgos has been untouched by tourism and has some of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches in the Peloponnese, including a 60 km stretch running from Kyparissia., on many of these beaches we have loggerhead turtles come ashore to lay their eggs and they can be seen swimming off the coast.

Kyparissia is about 3 hours drive from Athens airport, 1 hour from Kalamata airport and 2 hours from Patras (Araxos) airport. Many european airlines operate including Easyjet, British airways, Ryanair, Monarch and Olympic airways. Hire cars can be collected at the airports. If arriving by ferry from Italy the port of Patras is 2 hours.

What makes this cabin unique

We try to be as 'eco friendly' as possible, using outside solar lights, even our watering system for the gardens are mainly run from a natuarlly filled pond and pumped by solar.

Water heated by solar (backed up by electricty for the odd sunless days in winter) for showers etc.

Electricty produced by our own PV solar panels, which provides the log cabin and our small bungalow.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Perfect accommodation”

5 of 5 starsReviewed June 28, 2015 NEW

I have just come back from a week at the Cabin and it was excellent. Bernadette and Rod were wonderful, generous hosts (a bowl of chilled figs, a highlight for me) and they had thought of everything we could need. Watching swallows, martins and bats swooping around the pool with the backdrop of fabulous sunsets was really memorable

I would definitely recommend the Cabin.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt at home, Bernadette and Rod were perfect hosts giving us details of the surrounding area.

They left us a welcome pack which was very thoughtful

The Cabin is idyllic set in olive groves backed by mountains, it is far away from tourists which is fantastic. The pool and outside area are delightful and we spent many hours outside day and evening

The Cabin itself is fabulous, the layout is open and it has been furnished to a very high standard. You want for nothing during your stay here.

We have stayed in various parts of the Peleponnese in the last few years but we have to say that this is one of our favorites and we will be back

Idyllic, well equipped and fantastic owners

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend a stay at The Cabin. Bernadette and Rod are fantastic hosts - incredibly hospitable and thoughtful. We have had an amazing holiday in this beautiful part of Greece. Stunning views of the sea from the front and equally stunning mountain views from the back. Our children absolutely loved the pool - especially as it was a very welcoming 30 degrees. The beaches are beautiful, particularly Voidakilia near Pylos, with its crystal clear water. There are so many things to see and do, you’re spoilt for choice. We really enjoyed visiting Ancient Olympia and Nestor’s Palace, and there are many more ancient sites we would have liked to have visited if we’d had the time. Thank you Bernadette and Rod, we had a truly wonderful holiday.

Like Mary Poppins - Practically perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to have found The Cabin, which we stayed in for 2 weeks in September 2016. It was absolutely perfect in every way, stunning location and you would be hard pushed to find a better holiday home. Absolutely everything has been thought about, kitchen cupboards well stocked too.

The owners, Rod & Bernadette are also the most perfect hosts and are always there should you need them and because we arrived on a Sunday when shops are shut, they bought enough provisions in for us to eat and drink in the evening - that's the level of thoughtfulness that comes with them.

The location is perfect for a rural retreat but is also just 5 minutes away from the nearest town. There are some gorgeous sandy beaches all around which are quiet so you have plenty of space around you.

This is a great location for seeing the real Greece rather than just being in a tourist trap - lots of history around ie: Olympia & ancient monuments to visit, waterfalls and drive up in the mountains to a stunning Port to the South (Pylos) and wonderful secluded beaches and villages you find on your travels.

Thank you so much Rod & Bernadette for a wonderful holiday.

Owner's Response: Wow, what a lovely review. We are of course delighted that you had such a good holiday, it's a great time of year as it's not so hot and it's much quieter. We are getting ready for the 'second spring' which we always get at this time of year after the first rains, all the beautiful spring flowers re-appear, it's lovely. We would welcome you back anytime.

Fantastic value for money in wonderful accommodati

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodation in very peaceful surroundings. The owners seemed to think of everything we might need. Beaches great...and empty at this time of year. Easy to find, but secluded and felt like we were in our own little paradise. Only problem ...was we only had a few days, so will be booking to come back again before the season finishes.

Amazing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was an ideal base for our holiday (family of 4 - children aged 10 & 12). The property was incredibly well equipped and the welcome grocery supplies were more than we've had anywhere else (including homemade olive oil!) - and very welcome.

Bernadette and Rod couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful and happy to answer questions about places to go/directions/recommendations.

The area is a low key, rural part of Greece and not over run with tourists which was great - plenty of space on the beaches.

Highlights of our holiday were spending lots of time in the pool, watching the sunset at Agrili, walking up the mountain behind the house (an early morning start to miss the heat but well worth it), Polilimnus waterfalls, the Tholos tombs and ancient Messini. We would definitely come back to this part of Greece, and would stay at the Cabin again.

Owner's Response: We look forward to your return, hopefully we will have completed some winter maintenance and improvements by the time you come back. Remember that although summer is great, the autumn and spring are pretty wonderful too., so bear in mind the half term and easter breaks. It was a pleasure having such a lovely family staying in 'The Cabin' and thank you for such a lovely review.

Peaceful house

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with 3 kids and we spent few days in this wonderful and peaceful house. The Cabin is spacious, clean and well-maintained, perfect for a relaxing holiday. The house is within 1 hour drive from many beautiful beaches and historical sites. Rod and Bernadette are extremely friendly and helpful. We loved our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone!

There are many unspoiled beaches, on some of which we have often been the only people.

Endless ancient sites, many of them famous such as Ancient Olympia.

Exploring the coast and the mountain villages to discover many traditional Greek taverna's and restaurants.

Although there are numerous bars and typical Greek eating/drinking establishments, it is not an area for nightclubbing etc, but will suit those wishing to get away from the stress of busy lifestyles to re-charge your batteries.
