Reviewed July 11, 2013

We arrived in Kardamili and searched for accomodation.
We visited quite a few properties but couldnt find the perfect accomodation for a family.......
Palataki is the Perfect settlement, for couples or families. With lovely family apartments and Villas.Stone houses, lovely gardens, a pool, and incredible view.
Away from the tourist area, Highly recommended !!!!!!!!!! ....not to mention
its a family business - lovely people! We will come back back -Thank you

We have just enjoyed a fabulous week at Villa Palataki iii. Booked last minute with James Villas and flew into Athens. This meant a 3 hour drive to the villa but the roads were quiet and it was a straightforward drive. The villa itself is one of three, and in my view is the most private, being at the end of a track and adjacent to olive groves. Inside was spacious and attractive, and the outside area and pool were excellent, with good quality furniture. The location was excellent, being a short walk out of Kardamily, but far enough away to feel relaxed and rural. My only negative, was that the air con unit at the adjacent villa was extremely loud, and meant we had to close the windows and shutters at night to sleep, but that maybe something temporary which can be fixed. We were blessed with amazing weather and the villa is located in a good place to explore the wider Mani region which is just gorgeous. If you like to get off the beaten track, but still like access to good restaurants and bars, I highly recommend this.

Room Tip: Villa Palataki iii is the most private with views across olive groves to the sea and mountains.

Just returned from a week in Palataki villa 3. The villa was well equipped, nicely laid out, very quiet and not overlooked. The only sounds were the usual cocks crowing, the occasional dog barking or donkey braying, and the bells round the necks of some of the goats grazing in the olive groves. It was a last minute booking with James Villas, cheap because the flight was to Athens, a 3.5 hour drive away, but well worth that along excellent and virtually empty toll motorways (about 16 Euros each way) from the airport to Kalamata. The weather was surprisingly poor for the time of year, with wind, cloud and even rain, and only 3 sunny days out of 6, but the villa and location more than made up for that. Shame about the effect the Greek economy has had on Kardamyli, but the tavernas that were open were all good, though with less choice than in the past, and great value compared to the islands we have visited in recent years. We hope to be back!

We booked our holiday in late May 13 with Sunvil. When we arrived we found orange juice, bread, beer, honey, milk and other refreshments in our room which was very welcome as we arrived late at night.

We decided to rent a car, although there are a few small shops and restaurants close to the hotel many attractions and the larger supermarkets are a drive away. The studio where we stayed was very clean and had a balcony which a beautiful sea view. We spent a week here and our rooms were cleaned once.

We spent alot of our holiday exploring the area by car. The beaches of Stoupa and Nikolaos are very pretty and worth a visit. There are also many great places to eat in these areas. We also drove to Areopoli, Vathia and the beautiful beach of Voidokilia. We had a very relaxing holiday here and would highly recommend it.

Lets start at the beginning, Booked Villa No 3 thru Simply Travel. Flights were with Thomas Cook. I was pleasantly surprised by the service. It exceeded my expectations. Upon arrival at Kalamata Airport we were met by Melanie the Simply Travel rep who gave us driving directions to the villa, including details of a slight change to the original driving route. She also arranged for us to meet up with her on the following day to introduce us to the area.
I mention Melanie as she was brilliant, unfortunately Simply Travel will not be marketing this villa in 2012 but i believe two other companies are trying to get the contract to do so.
The villa was immaculate, and a mid week maid service kept the property tip top with a change of linen and towels. The pool was gorgeous, but a word of warning at 1.9 metres deep all round not suitable for non swimmers or small children.
The area around the villa is beautiful, with beaches to die for and crystal clear waters.
Kardamilli is a lovely typical Greek village with some nice restaurants and Tavernas. The latter very reasonably priced with local wine at 2.70 euros for 500ml. One Taverna especially welcoming was in the centre of the village run by brother and sister, Petros and
Ana.
Areas to visit if you really want to go away from the relaxing and quiet villa is Ancient Missini. Forget Olympia, Missini is a real find. Allow at least 2 hours to walk around the Archelogical site, its free to do so. There is a small Museum at the top of the hill which i believe costs about 3 euros to visit.The site is only about 20 minutes from Kalamata Airport.
A must do is take a drive thru the mountains locally to your villa, well worth it just for the landscape, but also take time to walk around.If walking is your thing then there are plenty of trails starting in Kardamyli and you can buy a hiking map in one of the village supermarkets.
One more mention regarding Melanie, on our last day she popped back to the villa and left us return driving instructions which all in all helped a lot to avoid the road works in Kalamata, great service.

I had some reservations when this was said to be a studio with pool. I thought nah, studios won't have pools, this is another Thomson's c**k up. But no, I have to hold my hands up, the description was absolutely correct.

We we're chuffed to bits with it - plenty large enough for the two of us and even had a very nice settee/day bed for a third person (a little lacking in privacy though). Small kitchen area and lovely airy bathroom with walk in shower with window looking out over the countryside. Table and three chairs inside with brightly coloured tablecloth. Apart from the most spectacular thunderstorm one afternoon the weather was much too nice to spend inside when there was a table, chairs and umbrella on the patio.

The mattress was quite firm which I prefer with lovely white cotton bed sheets and comfy pillows. We certainly didn't need anything else but there was a duvet and spare pillows in the wardrobe had we needed .

The ac unit was quiet and there was always plenty of hot water from the solar panels and enough towels. Cleaning and changing of towels and bedding was done once during the week.
I prefer that as I do care about the environment and loathe it when people demand clean sheets and towels every day when they're on holiday.

The patio area was fabulous with a splendid little pool and glorious views all around. The loungers were comfortable and it was a great place to come back to each afternoon to chill and swim.

Ten minute stroll into the village, uphill going back but would only trouble you if you had mobility problems. We used it as an excuse to pop into Dionysious(??) taverna to have a beer on the way home :)

Might not be everyone,s cup of tea but we were so happy to have a queen and her kitten around. It was an absolute pleasure to watch their antics.

Photos are similar to the others on here but they're to show what a 'studio' villa is like. Forgive the obviousness of some of them, "ooh look there's a bed and there's a ceiling...." but you can't submit the review with missing sections.

Room Tip: Three villas here, nbrs 1 and 2 are studios and 3 is one bed, the latter being at the end of the tra...

Holiday booked through Simpley Travel. After landing at Kalamata and collecting the car from Europcar, we made the 1 hour drive to Palataki Villa along the coastline. We had Villa No 3 a 1 bedroom property, the other 2 villa's close by being studios. From the main road its a short distance down the track to utter peace and tranquility. The first sight that greets you as you enter the gates, the swimming pool and then the well kept patio area with lemon trees and many shrubs all well maintained, which runs 360 degrees around the Villa, with views to the mountain range behind as well as the stunning view across the Messina Bay to the front. The pool area has 4 sunloungers as well as a parasol, just off is the table and chairs which to enjoy your meals from. Moving inside the property, you enter the large kitchen diner area, fully fitted kitchen which included not only a top of the range over and grill, but large upright fridge freezer, toaster, kettle etc. (Simpley Travel provide you with a complimentary stock for your first meal which included a bottle of wine.... nice touch). The front room has 2 sofas, flat screen TV, larger open fire place, bookcases built into the stone work, decorative wise was excellent. UPVC windows and patio doors which included the fly screens let in pleanty of light, as well looking out on the surrounding countryside. Modern bathroom with walk-in shower along the corridor, which then leads onto the bedroom with fully fitted furniture, again a larger double patio door takes you onto the terrace. The Villa (no3) was beautiful beyond words and the silence with the exception of wildlife was indeed bliss. We understand that whilst Wi-Fi is present in the area, the owner is having that fitted for 2012, for those wishing to bring laptops/notebooks with them. The pool is self cleaning, though every 3 days someone came to take samples and test the waters, the villa itself was cleaned again every 3 days and was spotless.
Kardamili itself, does not offer much, a few Tavernas and 2 excellent supermarkets, very traditional as a village, not been taken over by tourisim thankfully, the car is definatley needed to get away, make good use of it, there are some lovely places to visit.
Stoups further down the coast is the nearest beach at Korgaria, lovely sandy beach with many Taverna close by to top up with either food or water (booze if your that way inclined).
We had 2 weeks here in accomodation far beyond what we expected and with Simpley Travel, todate of all our travels the best. Cannot praise the Palataki Villa (No3) highly enough.
