“Perfect Location for a Relaxing Greek Holiday.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2010

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 villas are beatifully located and built; the area is entertainingly rural and unspolit, and the service exemplary. Great for couples and travelling with friends. Much to see in the area and the hosts are available to advise and guide. You could simply relax on site or get out and about - best a mixture of both. Breakfast and dinners available to mix with self catering in fully equipped villa kitchens. Air con a blessing in high summer. The web site pics are just as it is. Great hosts.

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids aged 12, 10 and 8) had spent two weeks at the Inconpainters villas.

The villas are located in a peaceful area, surrounded by Olive trees, wineyards, with a fantastic view on the sea and the lovely village of Koroni.
Villas are well equiped and air-conditionned. They are made for 4 people but with an extra-bed provided by the hosts, it worked well for 5.

There are four villas on the domain, plus the host house. Conception of the villas is such that each house benefits from its own privacy. Having other guests with us has not been a problem at all.

Surroundings of the villas are charming with a nice pool and lovely gardens.

Maria and Michal are fantastic hosts, very friendly providing great advices. They propose own wine, tapenade, olives, fresh bread, organic fruits and vegetables and...cherry on the cake, you can have a great dinner prepared by Maria and served by Michael. We had 3 dinners and they were all different and very tasty.

Location is very convenient. A nice beach is accessible by walking (10/15 minutes). The coast around is full of sandy clean beaches, with warm and crystal clear water. With just tubas and diving masks, we enjoyed seeing plenty of couloured fishes. There are many excellent tavernas directly on most of the beaches.

We drove from the villas to the great site of Olympie, the fascinating byzantin Mistras city and the ancient Messini.

All in all, we all had great holidays. A place we have already recommended to family and friends.

We just could not believe our luck on arriving at Michael and Maria's beautiful villas. First of all the views blew us away, perched on a hill the villas look down over olive groves and vines to the sea with stunning mountains rising the other side of the water. Further along the coast you can see the pretty town of Koroni with it's castle.
Eventually we were able to tear ourselves away from the views and look around us. The villas are nestled around a pool terrace with wooden loungers and chairs, (no plastic here) with beautiful planting and more views. We spent many hours relaxing here watching the bird life and thinking how wonderful life can be. The villas had everything we needed and had a lovely mix of modern and antique furniture.
But I think the thing that makes this place so special is the hosts. They have created an atmosphere and an environment that is so chilled out. Fresh vegetables and herbs? No problem, they have their own garden. Olive oil and olives? They produce those too. Feeling too relaxed to go out for dinner or cook? Maria will cook for you and Michael will do a very debonair job of serving it on their terrace or yours, and it is delicious. And not forgetting wine, they produce that too.
On to practicalities, we did not bring a car and although the village and beach is only a short walk, in the heat of the day it can be roasting and I found it hard. A car would be good but not essential as there is a good local taxi driver. This place is great if you want peace and quiet and would be perfect for a big family or group holiday if all 4 villas were booked, something we immediately thought about.
Had a great time.
