Kalamata House Rental Photos and Description
One of two 4/5 Bed House with stunning views over the seafront and mountains
Dimi House is a traditionally restored house with blue shutters and white washed walls. It can be used as two separate units, each with their own kitchen, bathroom, living areas, terraces and bedrooms. Each unit can be rented out individually and has its own access and gate.
This House, the 'Upper house' is the more spacious of the two. It has an open plan kitchen/ dining/ living area and a twin bedroom on the lower floor. A staircase in the courtyard leads to the top floor where there is a terrace with stunning views, a double bedroom, a bathroom and a separate toilet.
An extra bed can be put up to accomodate 5 if this is required.
Both houses are well equipped with basic facilities, such as kettles, ovens, crockery, etc. There is no washing machine, but a laundry service available on request
The drive down to Kalamata, the nearby town, takes about 10 to 15min. along winding roads. There you will find large supermarkets, a shopping street with all on offer that one could desire, a promenade along the seafront with cafés and restaurants alongside a sandy long beach. Kalamata has hosted many international arts festivals in open air locations in the summer months, such as dance and music performances in amphitheatres and open air cinemas on roof terraces. Another lovely walk can be taken along the marina, where further restaurants can be found.
If you prefer to keep away from the bustle of a buzzing town a petrol station, fantastic traditional bakery, pharmacy and mini supermarket can be found on the main road leading up to Kato Verga.
There is a lovely local restaurant in walking distance with spectacular views and a seasonal Greek menu. Just as the house it is also on the shady side of the mountain until later morning hours and in the evenings one can admire the sun set from a terrace with a drink in hand!
You are situated on the Peloponese, which offers the opportunity to explore many of Greece's ancient sites throughout the year.
Especially in the spring and autumn months the mountain with Kato Verga as a starting point lends itself to some breathtaking walks. The tranquility of the house during these times of year also make a painting holiday attractive. Greece has a special light that many authors and artists have tried to capture in their works.
It is advisable to have a car. This can be parked on the road above the house.

About Stefanie West
My husband and I live in England with our three daughters and dog. Both our backgrounds are in architecture, but we have now branched off into other careers. This is a picture of our last visit to Olympia! We had a wonderful day and can't wait to go back to our lovely house again soon!
Stefanie West purchased this house in 1988
Why Stefanie West chose Kalamata
My father purchased the whole group of houses, as ruins. As an architect he restored them traditionally. As he had lived and worked in Cyprus and Greece for over 20 years he could do this sensitively and as part of the community he grew into on site. We inherreted the house when my father passed away and would love to be in it much more than we are able to! We are happy to share it!
What makes this house unique
It has an amazing location that can not easily be found elsewhere. The combination of rocky, wild mountains right by the seafront and still embedded in terraces of citrus fruits, fig trees and olive trees, sitting under vines with breath taking views....heaven!
