This house is very well equipped with everything one needs for a large group looking for a relaxing holiday rental in southern Pelopennes. Plenty of bedding and towels provided, kitchens and washing facilities all provided make a hassle free stay.
Easy access by foot to tranquil village nearby or larger Kalamata by car.
Wonderful scenary, sea, beaches and towns and many interesting sites nearby provides plenty of opportunities for all tastes.
Very helpful owner lives nearby.
Slight downside is the main road is close to the house and can be noisy, though as I write this a bypass is being currently built which will cut down through traffic.
We need a place to relax, a pool (got 2 pools) for our kids to swim anytime, the sea (20 yards) for me, comfortable amenities and we got more. It was three families together and we all had our privacy and home comforts. We were all so happy there, left with the nicest of memories. The village was 15 walk.Vasilis was such a hospitable host. Highly recommend to families or couples. We had the best of times. Thank you so much Vasilis & bro xxxxx
A group of two big families and 11 people in total had a comfortable and enjoyable stay of four nights in the property. The location of the house is nice with a great view to the sea. There is some noise coming from the street, but it is not disturbing. The beach in front of the house is not good for swimming, but there are descent beaches in a few minutes driving. We were surprised by the attention our host Vasilis has paid to the details: a tasteful welcome lunch and drinks, supplies for our first breakfast, special towels for the pool, extra set of clean bed sheets, outdoors hifi system, wifi, cable tv, video games console for the kids and a fully equipped bbq. In addition, Vasilis was constantly available to help and provide advice about places to visit. As a conclusion we believe that friends and family house is exactly as described and an excellent value for money choice!
The house is huge. Actually it is two houses connected. So also perfect for 2 families and still have privacy.
The swimming pool is great.
Everything is very well maintained and fully equipped, even a little vegetable garden.
The location in the Peloponnesos is very good. You are an easy drive from Pylos, Methoni, the famous beaches like Voidokilia. Close to Kalamata and airport. If you cross the road you are on a little beach (not guarded or maintained). But we preferred the beaches a little more to the south: very beautiful.
Petalidi is a small but very pleasant town. By car only 5 minutes away. It has grocery stores, butchers, a market on Friday. Also, it has a great central plaza with lots of terraces. Not touristy, but very lively. We liked it very much.
The only drawback was the road that the house is on: it is quite busy, but once you are in the house you forget that.
The villa has the most amazing views across the beautiful open waters. The 4 brothers that jointly run the Villa leave nothing undone - they have gone to great lengths to ensure that all possible assistance is provided. This included: very supportive and prompt replies to our enquiries beforehand; meeting us on arrival (very flexible with timings); providing a generous welcome pack of foods and water/wine; fresh bread; a cooked meal for two straight form the kitchen; excellent advice on what to do/see.
We stayed at the end of the season, so very quiet in Petalidi. We know the area well and chose this villa because of its location and value. It can contain 2 separate families travelling together with the peace of mind of having a shallow children's pool.
we highly recommend this villa to others. Our special thanks to Vasilis, Stavros and Hristos for the use of their exceptional villa.
