Exceptional value and spaciousness for relaxed vacation.

  • 5 of 5

I recommend this beautiful property for longer stays as it is far from the city but near a beautiful beach on the Ionian sea. Our host, Leonidas, was gracious and came to meet us

in the town of Lappa or so we could find the property with long curving driveway. We stayed

almost a week and wish we could have had longer.

Day trips by car to Olympia, Temple of Apollo, Patra, and island of Zakynthos from Killini were easily managed. Located in/near a huge national park the forest of umbrella trees and birds were interesting with a back drop of lovely small mountains.

Very good villa

  • 5 of 5

Very clear and comfortable house. We were 11 persons (6 adults+5 children) and absolutely everyone is very pleased. Leonidas is friendly and responsive host. The garden is really big and lovely. Some beautiful sandy beaches, seawater is clear. For us it was very importance that there is very few tourists (at least in June). Olympia, Delphi, Sparta (80-150-250 km). I can highly recommend this villa for vacation or just relaxing by the sea. You will not regret.

Beautiful and clean house

  • 5 of 5

The house is in reality like the pictures and description on this website. It is well equipped, well-maintained, modern and very nice furnished. It has a big and shady veranda as well. The house is situated in a large garden with a lot of trees. The owner was very friendly and showed us around. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to the beautiful, natural and clean beach. We enjoyed our trip a lot! :)

A déconseiller - location dangereuse - présence de scorpions

  • 1 of 5

Nous avions loué la maison de M. Leonidas Stroumpos à Kalogria pour 3 semaines au mois d'août. Nous avons dû faire face à de très nombreux scorpions à l'intérieur de la maison et sur les terrasses dès le début du séjour. Avant de réserver, il nous avait pourtant écrit qu'il n'y avait pas de nuisibles malgré la proximité du parc naturel de Kalogria. A la fin de la 1ère semaine, ma plus jeune fille de 7 ans a marché sur un scorpion la nuit et s'est faite piqué au pied. Elle a énormément souffert. Nous avons dû nous rendre aux urgences de l'hôpital de Patras en pleine nuit (1 heure de route) pour la mettre en observation et la soigner. Nous avons prévenu immédiatement le propriétaire par sms pour l'informer de la situation et du fait que nous ne pouvions plus rester dans la maison sans mettre en danger le reste de ma famille. Nous lui avons dit que nous laissions les clés à son voisin et avons quitté les lieux dès le samedi matin.

Nous lui avons demandé de nous dédommager les 2 semaines restantes. Il a refusé toute arrangement arguant alors que la région est protégée par une convention interdisant le traitement des nuisibles (scorpions jaunes, moustiques, araignées,..) !

J'en profite pour préciser que le soir il est impossible de diner dehors dès le soleil tombé du fait des moustiques en très grands nombres aussi. Il y a une taverna à 200m qui est complétement vitrée le soir pour pouvoir diner sereinement. Après vérification par mon épouse auprès du pharmacien local, il y a eu 5 cas de paludisme dans la région ces derniers mois.

Cela fait 15 ans que nous passons nos vacances en Grèce et c'est la première fois que je vois une maison dangereuse comme ça (même si elle est bien équipée et décorée).

tout est ordre et beauté, luxe calme et affabilité

  • 5 of 5

La maison, équipée de tout le confort possible et aménagée avec goût, est remarquablement située au coeur d'une pinède et à deux pas d'une mer merveilleuse. Climatisation et ventilation permettent de ne pas craindre la chaleur. L'accueil très chaleureux du propriétaire dépasse tout ce que l'on peut imaginer. Vraiment, nous reviendrons et nous recommandons ce séjour pour une famille.
