Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Messinia - Walkers House, Koroni, Zaga

3 Double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, 2 large living rooms and 2 kitchens.

Truly breathtaking views of sea, beach, castle and mountains. Secluded location, on private path but less than one min walk to Zaga beach. Large traditional style house, in two spacious separate apartments connected by external staircase with extensive balcony upstairs with views over sea, castle and mountains to Mani. Downstairs sitting room has large terrace for sunbeds, eating and view over garden and partial view of sea. Garden has large dining area on terrace for al fresco eating. Only 10 mins walk to historic Koroni harbour with its colourful waterfront tavernas and shops. Large, private sun terrace set in a spacious garden with olive and lemon trees. Two huge living rooms with fully fitted kitchens. One first floor double bedroom with A/C, two twin bedded double rooms on lower floor with ceiling fans. Two bathrooms and two kitchens, large sitting rooms and wonderful balcony. House is reached by footpath with some steps, steep in parts so no passing traffic and magical tranquility; just the sound of sea at night. Travel reasonably light as it is 400m to road and parking above at school or 200m flat walk along beach by beach bar, but the seclusion and proximity to beach and amenities are worth it. Not suitable for very young children.

House is v well stocked for all holiday needs, has books, maps, TV and DVDs, boules, body boards, sun umbrellas, loungers and indoor games. No wifi.

Drainage: On no account can any paper, sanitary materials etc be put down the toilets. We are on natural drainage and if the pipes are blocked the current occupiers will be held responsible. So I`m afraid you will need to use the bins provided as with most of Greece.

Rubbish: Rubbish needs to be taken from the house and placed in the bins by beach bar about 150m or in the bins at top of path. Good idea to do daily as in hot weather it can encourage wildlife!

Open fire: Driftwood can be collected in cold weather for the open fire but please use guard provided at night.

About Lauren Walker

Lauren is a features writer for British and European publications, currently based in Brussels.

Why Lauren Walker chose Messinia

We think it one of the best houses in Koroni, with exceptional views and access to the beach but within walking distance of harbour and amenities.

What makes this house unique

Fabulous views, quiet location, beach on doorstep and conservation area with loggerhead turtles.

A magical place.

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Lauren for a great week. The house contained everything we needed. The access is a bit of a challenge but we were made aware of it before we booked. It is within walking distance of good restaurants and a secluded beach. The upstairs balcony looks over the sea and it is a peaceful and relaxing place to sit in the evening, chatting and enjoying a glass of good greek wine.

Stayed at the house twice...

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the house twice - once in the summer of 2006 and once in October 2009. The weather was fab for both visits, which was great, as the house is on a lovely beach (with turtles!). Very private location, within walking distance of the town, which has some lovely restaurants and bars. The house itself has all of the necessary amenities, and comfortably sleeps 6 with lots of living space. You can either fly to Kalamata or to Athens and hire a car; we have done both.

In all, this makes a perfect holiday for small groups of friends or young families seeking relaxation. We love it there!

La villa correspond parfaitement à la description. Très bon séjour. Propriétaire très "facile" dans toutes les relations.

Koroni is an unspoiled historic town with lovely Venetian houses lining a traditional harbour, a wonderful castle and fantastic views across to the Mani. Our house is on one of the most unspoilt, and idyllic beaches in the Mediterranean. A Natura 2000 site with nesting loggerhead turtles, white sand and a clear blue sea. The area lies on the edge of a national park with wonderful walks and spectacular views. Within an easy drive there are interesting old towns, castles and ancient sites such as Messine, Pylos, the Mani, Mystra and Methoni. Although totally secluded the house is 10 mins walk from charming town centre and nearest and only beach restaurant is 200m from house with good fresh food, bar and cold drinks, a small supermarket is about 400m away for basic supplies. In the summer months the turtles can be watched hatching and the volunteers helped. You can simply chill in house or use it as a base to explore this beautiful and historic region.

Other Activities: snorkeling, fishing, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing

The house is reached down a steep path of about 400m from the car park, free in summer. The advantage is that the house is utterly peaceful and private and has easy access to the unspoilt and uncrowded beach, but luggage must be carried to the house down some steps. Internet access is available free in Koroni in all cafes by harbour, if you have your own laptop. There are many excellent bars and restaurants. There are ATMs, supermarkets,bakers, butchers, boat trips, pool and table football and a coffee shop with TV for sport! Taxis are available locally and there is car rental from Kalamata and Koroni..
