We spent six amazing days staying at the Villa Nestors at the end of August 2012. Nestors has a spectacular 180-degree view of the Messenian gulf, Mani mountains and nearby Koroni Village from the amazing balcony. A typical day involved waking up and watching the sunrise over the Mani mountains and listening to the ocean in the distance. We loved... More

Really clear guidance ahead of the trip and friendly help whenever we needed it made it very easy to quickly relax into our clean, comfortable accommodation which was simple but had enough interesting features to make it far from generic. It was tempting to stay each day and enjoy the changing view from the comfort of the generous terraces but... More

I really recommend this place, especially for families with children. We had a great time. We enjoyed having our independence and our peace and quiet. The apartment was clean and comfortable and had a wonderful balcony with the most amazing view of olive groves and the sea. From the balcony there is also a view of the picturesque town of... More

We had a truly memorable, holiday at Saint Fridays. A real Greek experience with outstanding hospitality from Paul Hilary and their girls. The accommodation and setting were just what we had hoped for. So much to see and do within striking distance and a perfect view and nearby beach for easing away the cares of a busy working life. We... More

We've stayed at St. Friday's twice for 2 weeks in July/August. Set in olive groves and winding dirt roads, the bungalow overlooks the sea and mountains, with the charming town of Koroni and its fortress part of one's daily vista. The veranda is expansive and provides both shade for reading and a wonderful table for eating, as there is a... More

We are a busy couple who run our own business and have two small children. My husband does not enjoy normal holiday park holidays and this was perfect for us. There was no TV so we relaxed on the veranda for the morning until the afternoon, at this point we would walk down to the beach and spend the afternoon... More

Saint Friday's, nestling at the foot of the Peloponnese is a cluster of 4 small bungalows, and two apartments, with mostly 1 bedroom, living-dining with a sofabed, kitchen and bathroom, which are very modern and clean. They are close to the coast and and look over to the lights of the town of Kalamata in the distance. A ten-minute walk... More

On arrival the owner Paul was not expecting us although we had received email confirmation. We were 'upgraded' to Villa Methoni which was very dirty - the previous occupier had left behind an awful lot of grey pubic hair and thier athletes foot cream, which was still on the dirty bathroom shelf - nice! Kitchen cupboards were filthy (cobwebs) as... More

There was a mix up with their booking (guilty as charged!) and to make it up to them we offered to give them a bigger villa for free ($200 Euro difference they have originally chosen our smallest cheapest apartment). The previous guests had just left it in a pretty bad state so it wasn't ready. We did a quick turnaround... More

Staying at Saintfridays I actually e mailed another site for information but their facility was closed and they recommended Saint Fridays. Why ??? My wife and I wanted to stay a minimum of 3 months commencing October. The original site does not operate in the Greek 'winter'. So from the moment of e mailing Hilary and Paul and later phone...

This is a wonderful location with all you would expect. Views of the sea and mountains, olive trees, mountain roads and dirt tracks to drive along. The apartments are simple, and for us that was their charm. No TV's etc to distract from the view and the silence (except the cicadas of course) but they had everything we needed. There... More
