We found this to be the perfect location for a quiet and relaxing holiday in part of Greece that remains remarkably untouched by commercial tourism. The villas were fantastic, designed by our host Michael, comfortable and cool with everything you might need and a pool 4 steps outside the front door. Wonderful views south along the coast to Koroni and set amongst olive groves, vinyards and orchards. About a 25 minute walk through the countryside to the nearest village for supplies and a number of restaurants/tavernas offering good food and hospitality at tremendous value by UK prices. Worth having a car for a few days to explore the wider area, not least because the best beaches are found along the south coast between Koroni and Pylos. We recommend Zaga, Loutsa, Tsilpa, Navarino Bay and Voidokhelia. Towns worth seeing include Koroni, Methoni and Pylos (especially Kines cafe in the main square for ice cream and cake heaven). Another highlight was Marie's cooking, which we sampled 3 times, along with home-made wine: delicious. Be sure to take home samples of their produce, especially the oil and olives. We had a wonderful time, will definitely go back again.

- the Iconpainter Villas are located 5km north of the picturesque village of Koroni close to Peroulia Beach and the unspoilt villages of Harakopio and Kombi. Four two room villas and a swimming pool nestle in a beautiful landscape of olive groves and vineyards with spectacular views of the sea, mountains and in the distance the village of Koroni. As well as the villas and pool you can eat delicious meals with us made with our own produce from the garden, or if you prefer there is daily a selection of fresh produce available for guests to cook for themselves. ... more less
