The perfect place to stay in the Peloponnese
Spacious and attractive apartment with wonderful views. The outdoor kitchen and balcony was a unique experience! The garden and olive groves made a perfect setting to laze away the day and enjoy the swimming pool. The owners were exceptional in their care and guidance of best places to visit. They couldn’t do enough to make our holiday so memorable. We started off as visitors and felt that we left as friends!
Nice appartment, close to wonderful beaches, good spot to visit south-west Pelops!
Nice appartment, close to wonderful beaches, good spot to visit south-west Pelops (from ancient Messene to Olympia)
So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We are just far enough from Gialova that you feel you are on your own in the olive groves with great views yet near enough to enjoy the beaches and the local tavernas. Ancient Messene is just 2 hours away and Olympia 2.5 hours away - both easily done in a day trip with a swim. If you like walking, the waterfall is 40 minutes over the hill and there is a swimming pool in 150 metres with bar and meals. Lots of castles and things to see nearby.
A welcome as warm as the beautiful weather.
We enjoyed ourselves so much last year that we decided to return again this year. Our thanks to Fiona & Nigel for the many little touches that made this holiday homely, warm and personal. We had a great time again!
The accommodation is set in a beautiful and peaceful olive grove on the side of a hill overlooking Navarino Bay. Its only a short walk down to the waters edge. The apartments are comfortable and well equipped; including a kitchen on the balcony for al-fresco cooking and eating, and a wide selection of books for those, who want to relax with a glass of wine and a good story. There is also a lovely garden and patio with a swimming pool. Perfect for a midnight swim! We looked at the stars every night and watched meteor showers in the dark night skies. (Not much light pollution here!)
Everything had been arranged smoothly and we felt the welcome and the friendliness of everyone we met. The area has a lot to offer; unspoiled coastal towns with clean beaches and clean water, good food and drink and wall-to-wall sunshine. We ate out in local restaurants nearly every night! It is not expensive and the food and wine are locally produced and freshly cooked.
The scenery is stunning, and the water is crystal clear, great for snorkelling, or even scuba diving which you can try from the local scuba shop in Pylos under the watchful eye of Nicos. You can also hire boats from there, which we did for a day, and went to exlplore the bay and the islands.
Most days we tried a different beach. The kids enjoyed collecting pebbles which we then painted and decorated ….
We also liked going to local villages and towns, especially Gialova and Pylos; both picturesque and lively, full of restaurants and some entertaining local music and events.
No doubt that we will return again. Hopefully next year..
Exactly what we needed...
Elektra was exactly what we needed. There are two apartments in the house; Arkady and Elektra. We stayed in Elektra for a few days at the beginning of August. The apartment was beautiful, homely (not just the usual whitewashed clinical finish), and clean, with outstanding views of Navarino Bay from the kitchen/balcony. This innovative feature makes more sense than you would fist imagine; and is something that we will remember for long time (if only we had the weather for it in the UK!). The house is situated just far enough up the hill to give you peace and quiet but just close enough to walk to the beach and the village. Perfect… Or, you can walk the other way up amongst all the Olive groves. One of which the house it situated in. And I’m sure you can even borrow a lovely dog from Nigel and Fiona to accompany you if fancy (we recommend Daisy!)…
Nigel and Fiona gave a warm welcome which equalled the weather and the clear waters of the bay. We also took advantage of their recommendations, taking trips to Pylos and Methoni. We saw the Polylimnio Waterfalls, Methoni Castle. We spent many hours snorkelling around the beaches in Methoni and Navarino Bay. If we had had the car for longer we would have gone to Messini and further afield.
Our memories are full of lovely weather, beautiful thunderstorms, sand in beds, warm sea, snorkelling and starfish, sailing, scuba-diving, unfinished books, late trips to the local Stasi restaurant, unpolluted star-filled night skies, and of course Greek salads.
Next time we will try and visit some of the places we didn't have time for, go scuba-diving again, and maybe try a bit of windsurfing or kite-surfing; because we will definitely be returning here and would recommend it to everyone…
Quiet location, wonderful view
We've had a fabulous holiday here in Gialova : have loved every minute ! The accommodation has suited us perfectly and the view from the balcony is a treat for the soul every morning. We've taken full advantage of all your recommendations and highlights have included : dining at Kastro's, Andreas' and Niko's in Methoni. Visiting Pylos and Methoni castles and snorkelling from the rocks below Methoni castle. Also dipping into the limpid turquoise waters of Shinolakka waterfalls ; Voidokilia beach and the walk to Nestors cave and Paliokastro ; day trip to fascinating Messini , eating well at Stasi's and Elia's in Gialova and swimming across to Sphacteria from the end of Golden beach. Also visiting Tsapi beach beyond Finikounda and eating the most delicious grilled sardines at the Taverna. A feast for the senses ! It's been a pleasure staying here plus meeting you and your extended family, Nigel , Fiona and Phoebe. Many thanks for your hospitality. We'll be back !
Jane , Simon, Joseph and Martha
Jane, it was great to meet you and your family and thank you so much for taking the trouble to list some of the many places you have enjoyed visiting. Families especially are pleasantly surprised at how much there is to do here. You can't really see it all in a two week holiday.
Presently we have guests on their second holiday with us determined to just laze on the beach after they made so many excursions on their first trip - but even they will be trying Romanos beach and then the fabulous taverna in Evangelimos - they didn't have enough time before ! To add a few more to the list there is Polilimnio waterfalls near Kazarma, Byzantine tombs just outside Methoni, fishing boat trips to the perfect white sand beach on Sapientza island a 'secret' beach findable with a rental boat on the other end of Sphacteria island and plus scuba diving in Navarino Bay. Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes Nigel and Fiona.
Location location location... excellent
We had a 10 day stay at the apartment. We utilised the extra bedroom downstairs and were really impressed with the location. The views are outstanding and aside of a few thunderstorms we had a lovely holiday. We used our car mainly to get to Gialova and then we mainly walked. We were able to walk to and from town in under half an hour which was a perfect distance to walk off the amazing food and drinks that Gialova offers. Fiona and Nigel were lovely hosts and couldn't do enough to help/ advise us. We really felt that we experienced a snippet of the Greek lifestyle in and around the olive groves.
Having had so many guests who rent a car for their entire holiday and then barely use it, we will, in future, inform everyone who books with us of the option of using our good local taxi driver, Dimitris, to meet them at the airport . We have also set up an arrangement with a local car hire firm, Rigatos Cars who we know very well and who are happy to deliver cars to guests only for the number of days they really want. They are cheaper than the big companies and do not charge the huge insurance excess which can easily turn into a very expensive headache.
We're extremely lucky in that the most local and best value restaurant in Gialova, 'To Stasi Taverna,' ( just over the road from the beach ) is the closest to us ( 10 mins walk there, 15 mins walk back! ) We promise that when they give you a 10 kilo watermelon ( which they frequently do) we will collect it for you and transport it home ! We aim to ensure all our guests enjoy happy, relaxing and totally stress-free holidays.
