a wonderful place
Exactly what we wanted. Excellent accommodation, clean and well fitted out. The owners were most kind and helpful and we could not have wished for better. I would certainly recommend this property. The quiet location offers beautiful views over the town and sea.
Great, well equipped house overlooking Kalamata
I just want to say how much we enjoyed our 2 weeks in this lovely house. It's near enough to the owner's house to get help if needed, but private enough at the same time. It has pretty much everything you need; if not Jackie or Pete were happy to lend something from their own house. The house is spacious, airy, and cool, the air con wasn't necessary for us in September.
Regarding the drive up; it was a bit daunting the first time, especially after a long, tiring day, but after a few goes it's not a problem if you take care. It certainly did not stop us going into town in the evenings to take advantage of the many restaurants available. Just behind the marina, off the waterfront, are several real Greek restaurants, full of local people; the same can be found at the other end of town, just a bit away from the seafront. A 2 course meal with house wine can be had for €25 - 30 for 2.
There are several beaches a short drive away, which, in the week were practically deserted, and not much busier at the weekends.
In short, thank you to Jackie and Pete, for a great stay, and giving us all the help and advice when we needed it.
A great holiday house in a beautiful location with wonderful views!
A well maintained, clean and well stocked house. We felt very well looked after by the owners - both prior to and during our stay. We have two young children and this house was ideal. The house was as described although I think the rooms are slightly bigger and more spacious in reality than they look in the photographs.
A real highlight of our holiday was returning to the house each evening and watching the sunset over Kalamata and the Messinian Bay.
We really enjoyed the location in Kalamata from where we explored the Peloponnese (so much to see!) as well as spending lots of time on the beach and swimming.
Great Kalamata Experience
Great holiday home, brilliant views and well located less than 15 mins drive from centre of Kalamata. A spacious, spotless home, well equipped to a good standard with everything we needed for our stay. Easy access to the roof terrace with great views of countryside and sea. Owners were professional and friendly from start to finish and were on hand when we arrived to show us around. Thanks for a great stay - much appreciated - and hope to see you again when we come to Kalamata. Rich & Chris.
Kalamata is a friendly and safe town, and Peter and Jackie's cottage is lovely; although the pictures show this better than any words of mine could do. What the pictures can't show is what superb hosts they are. They are charming; friendly; helpful, and kind people. They care very much that the cottage is comfortable and well equipped and that their quests have an easy and relaxed holiday. Their attention to detail and the love that they put into their home and garden is a delight. They are always ready with a smile, and nothing is too much trouble. It doesn't surprise me how many of their guests return so often - as shall I. Thank you Jackie and Peter.
Thank you very much Fernleigh, it was a pleasure having you here and we hope to see you again.
Peaceful Gem & Great Touring base
We had a wonderful 2 week stay at the Yellow House which proved to be a good base for touring adventures in the Mani & Messinia. There is lots to do and see - beautiful beaches and historical excursions are easily accessible and the historic sites of Mystras and Messene are in easy reach. Some adventurous off road driving too, if you are so inclined!
The house itself is well equipped - the air con & fans a godsend on hot nights. The view from the terrace roof is fabulous, great sunsets and skyscapes looking over the great sweep of the Bay of Messinia. There’s an array of comfortable furniture on the terrace roof, that makes it a great spot to relax. There is an impressive collection of books, DVD’s and CD’s and games for families. The house was clean and well maintained.
The house is perhaps best for self caterers in the evenings, as it's a dark and bendy drive down to Kalamata. However, the eating out tables at the house make this a delight, overlooking the twinkling lights of Kalamata below. Taverna's do abound in all towns when wanted and there are a couple in Elaiochori above the house.
The Owners live next door and were very friendly and helpful when needed.
The house is situated in a perfect location for exploring the Peloponnese area of Greece. It is in a quiet area with an away from it all feel with mountain and sea views yet it is only 10 minutes by car to the nearest beach and Kalamata town. Kalamata itself is a cosmopolitan place with plenty of restaurants, museums, cinemas, theatres and of course lots of shops to suit all tastes. There is also a marina and a castle in Kalamata town. This part of the Peloponnese is perfect walking country and there are numerous published guides to walking routes in the area. There are plenty of beaches and places to visit within easy driving distance, including the popular resort of Stoupa, the venetian castles of Methoni and Koroni and the Byzantine city of Mystras. A popular taverna is located less than a kilometre from the house. The owners of the property live in a separate house next door to the holiday home so can give advice for unspoilt beaches and places of interest if required.
