Koroni Apartment Rental Photos and Description
This set of 4 stylish studio apartments created in a restored Venetian townhouse overlooking harbor. Entered by a private enclosed courtyard with a little splash pool feature. 2 mins to a large choice of excellent eateries and tavernas. The ideal location for the perfect Greek holiday.
Nestled in a quiet lane in the heart of this magnificent Venetian village, the Iconpainter's House has been lovingly restored to create 4 stylish and spacious apartments. The upper apartments have a view over the village, the harbour, and across the gulf to the Taygetos mountains and a large balcony on which to eat or relax. The lower, courtyard apartments have a space of their own in the courtyard and are lovely and cool. The House is less than 5 minutes walk from the shops and tavernas on the waterfront and the same distance from the world famous Zaga beach, (home of the Loga Turtle). This is a traditional house expertly restored to give light, airy accommodation which is furnished to the highest standard. It has a feeling of ‘Greek with Chic’ about it. All apartments have air conditioning and well equipped kitchens. There are laundry facilities on site and parking is available 50m from the apartments.

Further details for this vacation rental
All apartments have air conditioning although because of the expert renovation of this old, thick walled house, the guest may find no need to use it! In the winter we can install a wood burning stove in the apartment, making it an ideal winter retreat. Each studio has its' own private space outdoors either in the courtyard or on the balcony.
Koroni has a large choice of excellent eateries and tavernas. Koroni is one of the four villages appointed by UNESCO to represent the "Mediterranean diet" due to the quality and variety of local produce. There are shops to buy gifts and crafts made locally and of course, shops, banks, post office, petrol stations for daily needs. Fish is caught in Koroni every day and there are 2 wonderful fish shops and a fish market where fresh fish can be bought. Atop the village is Koroni Castle(once a Venetian Fortress) which is worth a walk to see the Convent nestling up there and to experience the absolutely breathtaking views over the sea to the mountains beyond.
If the beach is for you, then other than Zaga beach (5 minutes away) there are the beaches of Peroulia and Kombi 4 km north and 5km south, Finikounda. Finikounda is world famous for wind surfing. More isolated and unspoilt (if that is possible) are the beaches of Tsapi and Marathi. Even on summer days you can visit either and find yourself totally alone!
If you like to sightsee, the Koroni is a great base. From there you can head east to Methoni (another Venetian stronghold with a castle), to Pylos to see Nestor's Palace and Pylos Castle relics from the ancient world. Further afield, but still a day trip are Ancient Messini or Olympia. Ancient Messini is one of Greece's best kept secrets. West over the Langada Pass takes the visitor to Byzantine Mystras a magnificent medieval town siiting overlooking the Spartan Plain.
If you love outdoor activity, then there are fabulous walks with unbelievable scenery at your doorstep. The Neda valley is a moderate drive away but has wonderful rock formations and the river flows into the Ionian. The Viros Gorge is a massive gorge from the peak of the Taygetos Mountains to the sea. The walk itself would take you by old abandoned villages and many beautiful churches. There is boat hire at Pylos and Finikounda and windsurfing gear for hire at Zaga Beach (Koroni) and Finikounda.
