Wonderful stay at the Esperedes Apartments. Fabulous location only seconds from a coastal wallk & beautiful beaches. Apartments are first class; clean, well kept & including all facilities for an amazing holiday - brilliant values. Short walk away from the local village of Marathopoli which includes several tavernas serving fresh, local food! Fabulous destination for a long or short break!
Perfect place to stay! There are 5 apartments facing a beautiful stretch of coastline, there is a place to swim out front but 5 mins walk towards town there is a place that's safer when it's windy (no sharp rocks!). You can also walk 30 mins the other way to a sandy beach where there are cafés on the beach. The apartments are well set-up and you can cook dinner and watch the amazing sunsets! There are also some great little extra thoughtful touches like pods for the espresso machine and power points in the wall outside near the sun loungers. I'd definitely stay again :) it's so peaceful.
Great experience at Esperides! Amazing landscape from the terrace, well kept garden where you can relax, admire the sunset, have a dinner under the gazebo with the lights, make a barbecue. Spacious room and fully equipped kitchen. Shared washing machine for fee very useful. In front of the apartment there is a cliff where you can swim, is not private but there are few people. The apartment is clean and we found all necessary for self cleaning. The host and him family are very helpful and friendly. From Esperides you can reach Olimpia, Old Messene, Methoni and a lot of beaches. We loved Esperides, we'll come back.
A very good base camp to explore the region. The house is located meters from the sea, so after a day of visit you can go for a swim. Its location is centered in Messinia. Very easy to go North to visit Olympia, or South to visit Methoni, Pylos,... we loved that place. Te view is nice. Nice sunsets too. On the lawn you have sun chair under sun sails to relaxe.
The surrounding area was great. All the apartments have a magnificent sea view. The best area for relaxing. The beach in front of the Esperides is very rocky, which makes it very difficult to enter the water with small kids, especially when is windy and wavy. On the other hand, for this reason there are only very few people coming for swimming (usually only Esperides' guest), so somebody can very easily relax by hearing only the sound of waves without people or cars.
Very quiet area. You Could listen all night long to the soothing sound of the waves if you live the sliding doors open. We watched few stunning sunsets from the comfort of the lounge chairs. The closest beach is 2 km away, shallow waters and the beach chairs are free. Our favorite spot is Gialova, about 20 min drive but is worth it. Do not skip the cruise to Sphecteria island($20 Eu round-trip). Also from Methony you could go to a secluded beach on Sapienza island($10 Eu round trip)
Best sunset place at west coast of Peloponnese. You can stay and relax on the property lying in the hammock or on the sun bed. Plenty of nice beaches south and north of Marathopoli. Marathopoli is a pretty nice village with a number of good and original tavernas.
The view is excellent, the positioning too but only if you have a car, the closest sandy beach is at 2km away, and the houses are big enough, only the bathroom is really small, like 1x1,5m, but the dust was wiped superficial, only on the visible surfaces, the mattresses are not the best, we started had problems with our back since the second night, and we had a problem with something in the ceiling for 2 nights, and in the second we couldn't sleep at all, there was something walking on the ceiling, and apparently they knew about this problem because when we told them they said that there is something like a cat(probably a raccoon) that goes inside but they have no idea how.
Since 2007, our family has stayed at Esperides on various occasions. Each time we have been impressed with the communications, the staff, the location, a most delightful experience! Highly recommend!!
The rooms are in a very good location and they are nicely decorated and equipped. Also the surrounding area is very well organized. We would happily go again there! We are a family of 5 people with two teenagers and an 8 year old.
