Ideally located in the heart of Elis, 34 km south from Pyrgos and 19 km north from Kyparissia (the nearest city is Zacharo, 5 km away, you will find a wellness centre, shops, banks, doctors, dentists, supermarkets, and much more). The position is perfect to visit the main places of interest, suchas Olympia, Neda Valley, the Mycenaean graves of Peristeri, Nestor Palace, three archaeological sites in Messenia, the Apollo Epicurius Temple in Bassae, and the heritage villages less than 12 km away. You can also visit the Kaiafas Thermal Springs, boat trips to explore the Navarino Bay and the islands. Discover the surrounding nature, Pylos, the Methoni castles, and the Chlemoutsi Castle of 1283. Culinary routes and the Domaine Mercouri for wine lovers. You can visit the Kefalonia and Zakynthos islands less than 2h 30 away and of course, do not forget, the fine sand beach in a protected area of the coast, virgin, wild and in an un-built area. It is a refuge for sea turtles and loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta)! Admire the wild orchid on the beach, especially during the months of June, July and August.

It also has a Mediterranean landscape with UNESCO heritage villages 20 minutes away! 11 km away from Zakynthos and Kefalonia islands (less than two hours). Within a distance of 40 km, there are three archaeological sites (Olympia 27 km away, the Apollo Epicurius Temple in Bassae 36 km away, the Ancient Messenia 40 km away). Navarino Bay and the bird reserve of pink flamingos 45 km away. Nearby, there is a large choice of typical restaurants that offer traditional dishes for less than €12!

Awsome place, excellent host

  • 5 of 5

the villa is perfectly located almost by the beach, large rooms, wonderfull terraces, a courtyard full of lemon and orange trees. The beach is sandy, water is clear, sea turtle nests all the way on the beach. Good tavernas nearby. Every second day a lady came to clean the house. Nikos was excellent as a host, providing us all the necessary information and a complimentary basket upon our arrival. We would welcome returning in the years to come

Gande maison au bord d'une plage vraiment sauvage

  • 4 of 5

Nous venons de passer 6 jours fantastiques dans la maison de Nikos (3 familles de 5, avec des enfants de 10 à 21 ans). Il y a réellement des tortues qui pondent sur la plage toute proche. Sable à perte de vue, couchers de soleil magiques... et quasiment personne !!!

La maison est immense, avec clim dans la plupart des chambres. Un petit bémol sur les salles de bains où les baignoires mériteraient d'être remplacées par des douches et les robinets détartrés.

Olympie est le site le plus proche, mais pour ceux qui ne craignent pas les petites routes de montagne, le temple d'Apollon vers l'Est est impressionnant, tout comme le palais de Nestor au sud. Mais inutile de rechercher des plages ailleurs : elle vous paraîtront trop petites, sales ou peuplées par rapport à celle de la maison !!!

Pour les fans de tortues de mer, faites quand même un saut au centre d'information sur la plage de Kalo Nero (ou voir www.archelon.gr).

Bref un vrai coup de cœur !!!

Vaut le détour

  • 5 of 5

L’accueil de Nikos est sympathique, chaleureux. Disponible et agréable, il donne de précieux conseils pour trouver les sites à ne pas manquer et connait très bien la région et son histoire.

Bonne organisation, et petits-déjeuners remarquables avec toujours une petite touche particulière bien appréciée (ses confitures et jus de fruits maison sont un régal !).

Un séjour plaisir-calme-détente à proximité de sites de la Grèce antique et accès à pieds à une magnifique plage de sable fin.

Bref, une adresse à retenir et qui mérite le détour !
