In a stunning location 45 minutes from Kalamata International Airport (which now has 3 British Airways AND 3 EasyJet flights a week from the UK), a beautifully designed house, with an amazing swimming pool. A perfect for getting away from it all and relaxing with sun, sea and pool. This old stone house has been renovated from top to bottom to create a designer house with attention and respect to detail that honors the traditional stone aesthetic while providing every modern convenience. The location is breathtaking, with views of the coast looking south from Zacharo as well as olive orchards, mountains and fields. This is the real Greece with luxury on top. The swimming pool is outstanding and just below the house down some neo-classical steps. The master bedroom has a free-standing bath and a 4 poster bed. The house has terraces on all sides and on all levels. The unspoiled beaches of this coast are 5 min down the hill in both directions. (There are 60k m of undeveloped beaches in 1 stretch alone here).

Lovely, comfortable house, no expense spared on the furnishings.
The house is in a lovely peaceful position and very well equipped with good quality pots, pans and linen. The terrace having the bug net all around is absolutely inspired, it means you can be outside anytime of the day or night without being bothered. The pool was lovely if a little chilly (we were there in May) but we used it everyday. Overall we had a comfortable, relaxing stay which is exactly what we were looking for.
A lovely villa with incredible views
This was our second visit to The Old Olive House and we plan to come back again. The setting is so beautiful that we relaxed instantly. The house has everything a family could need. A well stocked kitchen, games for the kids, comfy beds, indoor and outdoor eating areas and plenty of space to relax and enjoy the view. On the few days we managed to drag ourselves away from the villa we visited Olympia, mountain villages, stunning beaches and bustling street markets. A perfect holiday.
Stunning location and a lovely house with extremely helpful hosts
We loved our stay. We were particularly pleased that Zacharo and the area round about is not overrun with tourists, especially at this time of year. We all agreed that the location is brilliant with amazing views, and The Old Olive House is a wonderful place for a holiday. The property managers, Charles and Ellie, could not have been more helpful and we were very happy with their recommendations for things to see (Messene particularly), and where to go for eating and shopping - and of course we were very lucky with the weather. Thank you.
This is an extremely well kept property in a lovely part of the southwestern peloponessos
You can see it is more than an investment for the owners as there is really a properly equippped kitchen where you can cook and even bake should you fancy it
Nice rustic crockery, fluffy towels and additional pool beach towels are plentiful
There are even herbs growing outside the kitchen and Charles and Ellie who look after the place give you a welcome stock ( eggs, milk, butter water - even a complimentary bottle of very good (ktyma mercoury) wine ). They are English which might give reassurance to people who do not speak Greek or are familiar with Greek customs. Most importantly they are a lovely couple and very helpful who have lived in the area for long enough to know it inside out
What s not to like? Nothing really it might be too remote for some being 3 Km s up a mountain ( we felt perfectly safe and enjoyed the view), the drive is steep and may scare some and the master bedroom door needs a bit of joinery as it does close not fully
Ow it s perfectly maintained in a virtually untouched part of one of the most striking provinces of Greece( olyimpia 15 min, bassae 30 min, pylosnetc also close even my stars doable as a day trip) close enough to Patras should people decide to drive
A really amazing place to stay with spectacular views- very high quality
Everything was lovely - the furnishings and rooms, the pool and bathing area, all the terraces. The position of the house is really amazing and everything felt luxurious and quality but still authentic and Greek. The house is looked after very well by Charles and Ellie who also gave us some great ideas for places to go. Really recommend it - had a lovely stay here.
Beautiful view & Getaway!
This was a perfect week for relaxing! Charles and Eleonore were very accommodating hosts and always a phone call away.
The weather was not the best for swimming; but the house offered enough amenities to enjoy a quiet and relaxing time. We recommend obtaining a SIM card as there is no WIFI in the house. There are many affordable restaurants around town and within 15-20 minutes away.
We had the chance to visit the beach and found to be a beautiful place, would be perfect for a warmer day!! We also visited Ancient Olympia, about 40 minutes away, but we suggest to stay in the house and sip some local wine!!!!! The town was full of friendly people and helpful. The home has all the amenities and is fully equipped. We highly recommend to book your stay here.
