Situated within a tranquil olive grove and vineyard, these charming villas are an ideal holiday location. Fabulous sea and mountain views, a pool on-site and the beach nearby. What makes a holiday with us unique is that we can cater for your every need including breakfast or evening meals prepared by Maria with produce from the garden and local area if you want them. This property is perfect for relaxation and a true Greek experience. Sharing the garden with 3 other villas, each has its own space and feeling of privacy. Less than 1km from the nearest village and 5 mins stroll to the beach. There are plenty of outside areas around the pool, on the private balconies and in the barbeque area for exclusive use by our guests. The villas at the Iconpainter's Garden are unique. There you can have fresh fruit and vegetables every day from our orchard and garden and enjoy our own olives and oil. We aim to give you the perfect Greek holiday.
The villas are designed with the environment in mind and made with local materials and high levels of insulation and good cross ventilation. They all have air conditioning in the sitting room and bedroom too. Hot water is provided by solar panels. There is a swimming pool which is for exclusive use of the 4 villas around it. Each villa has satellite TV and wi-fi.
We aim to provide ‘something different’ for your holiday and to that end we can provide dinner and breakfast made from our own organic vegetables and produce and served at our own house in the olive grove. Guests can buy fresh produce from us every day in the form of fruit and vegetables, oil and olives, wine, preserves and freshly baked bread.
We have an extensive lbrary of maps, guides and topical books.
Whilst we welcome children at the Iconpainter's Villas, it is a place for tranquil relaxation. We ask that parents ensure that their children respect the privacy and peace of others.
From the villa, within a walk to Harakopio or Kombi, shops for all your needs are available. For a larger supermarket or a bank , you would have to go 4km into Koroni, described by ‘rough guide’ as ‘one of the most picturesque fishing villages in Greece’. There is a magnificent castle atop a promontory (once a Venetian Naval Fortress). Nestling beside the Castle is the unbelievably quaint ‘Timios Prodromos Convent" made up of a network of tiny intricate churches. The view from here over the sea leaves one speechless. For those who love sightseeing, a day trip can take you to the second Venetian Castle in Methoni and on to the picturesque port of Pylos. For those who like activity boat hire is available in Pylos and windsurfing lessons or equipment hire at Finikounda (8km away).
Further afield, for day trips away, Byzantine Mystras, a medieval town perched high on the mountains overlooking Sparta. Olympia and Ancient Messini are both wonderful examples of the ancient world. There is also the Temple of Epicurean Apollo standing within a fascinating landscape and said to have some of the most intact friezes surviving from ancient times. Nestor's Palace is a Mycenian Palace near Pylos and interesting for its' insight into ancient domestic life.
For those who love the outdoors, there is a walk in the Neda Valley where the river flows into the Ionian Sea. The valley has unusual rock formations and forms and extraordinary landscape. Within driving distance, are the Polylimnio falls, a secret paradise of small lakes and waterfalls hidden among olive groves and vineyards and finally, the Viros Gorge, a walk with stunning scenery, many churches and ruined ancient
villages along the way.
All of these places are either close by or within a normal day trip. For those not wanting too much in the way of activity, there are always the many beaches or even the comfort of the pool and your own balcony!
