If you want relaxation, peace, heat, great olives, the best sun dried tomatoes you've ever tasted and an ever changing sea view - this is the place. Ideally suited to couples and small families, the villas are well designed and have everything you'll need if you want to do all your own cooking. Plenty of local beaches to choose from and none of them too busy. The quayside cafes in Koroni are great for a drink in the evening. Michael and Maria manage to pull off the difficult trick of being attentive, thoughtful hosts without being intrusive. They also take great care of and pride in the beautiful surroundings that they have created. A dawn trip in search of loggerhead turtle hatchlings with the local conservation charity was a particular highlight for us.

We spent a very relaxing 8 days here in August with our 14-year-old daughter and her friend. The villas are lovely - very well thought out and very comfortable - with beautiful views from the private balconies. The pool was very inviting and it was lovely to be able to walk through the olive groves to the nearest beach. This is a very unspoilt area of Greece and although the villas are off the beaten track it is easy enough to do some sightseeing if you rent a car, although, like us, you may just succumb to the gentle rhythms of life here and get no further than another beautiful beach with warm clear water. Maria and Michael are excellent hosts, happy to answer all questions and full of excellent advice on where to eat (although you must stay home and sample Maria's cooking at least one evening) and places to visit. A handful of freshly picked figs on our balcony table every morning was a welcome reminder of their hospitality.

We stayed here in August for only 3 days, which was WAY too short! Great houses, great service, great cooking, great environment and very nice hosts: Really literally everything you could want in a holiday! It is indeed off the beaten track, unique and a little jewel to be preserved and captured.

What a great place! In the olive groves of Charakopio, overlooking the Peloponnese mountains across the Kolpos. Beautiful little villas, furnished with style, and a spectacular pool. Awsome views and quiet nights. Koroni is not far. Maria and Michael are phantastic hosts, Greek and English and very international. We loved our stay. And will come back!

Room Tip: Any one of the villas is fine!

If you are looking for lodging that is quiet and off the beaten track ...Icon Painter is for you. The small villas are tastefully built and decorated, as well as private. The views from our porch were gorgeous. It was wonderful to wake up to a view of the Mani mountains, olive groves and the sparkling Mediterranean. The owners were helpful, generous and amazingly communicative. Setting up our visit was made easy due to Maria and Micheal's excellent communication through email. Our stay was not just about lodging, it was an experience.

1 week stay Sept 14th -21st
Better than described, believe the reviews, its that good.
Bit of a drive down a single track road, couldn't believe there could be anything at the end of it when we first arrived! Drove from Athens, which allowed us to see a bit of the country.
Ancient Messini worth a look as is Tapsi beach on the way to Methoni
We will be back.

My wife and I stayed at the Icon Painter Villas two years ago and had a great time. This year we decided to return - the first time we have been back to a holiday destination. We did not regret it, this remains a wonderful oasis, a great place to just chill out and relax. Michael and Maria are great hosts amd Maria's cooking is superb.
I cannot recommend the villas enough, however I hesitate to do so in case they are fully booked next year!
