Peace beside the olive groves

  • 4 of 5
My partner and I (and our small dog) stayed at Moongrove for a month in April-May as a base for exploring the Mani region. The house is in a serene setting among the olive groves and in an ideal location near the lovely fishing village of Agios Nikolaos, while the beach at Pantazi is just a 10-minute walk away. The rooftop terrace at Moongrove is amazing, with stunning 360-degree views of the Taygetos mountains and the Bay of Messania. We would warmly recommend Moongrove as excellent holiday accommodation.

Idyllic and utterly peaceful

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week in moongrove in may 2010. It is peaceful and secluded, with private gardens all the way round with different seating areas, each catching the sun at different times of the day, and with wonderful uninterrupted views over olive groves, with the sea twinkling in the background.

It's a 10 minute walk through the wild thyme and fennel scented olive grove to a cove with a sandy beach, and a warm lapping sea. Agios Nikoloas is a further 5 minute walk only, and this is a tiny seaside town, not for people searching for kiss-me-quick tourism or lively bars, as the town blissfully only has a few tavernas on the shoreline with blue tables and chairs, white tablecloths, and delicious sea food.

Moongrove itself has two comfortable bedrooms, and a well equipped kitchen, and a sitting room. There was a television and dvd player, but we didn't turn them on, preferring the scrabble board on the umbrella-ed shady table whilst we grilled our dinner on the barbeque. It is perfect for a couple looking to escape it all, or a family looking for some quality time.

The Perfect Greek Experience

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect 'get away from it all' location, for those wanting a quiet location and to experience a bit of 'real' Greece. The house is built and furnished in a traditional greek style but with all the mod cons you would expect to make your stay comfortable and hassle free. It is located amongst olive groves, just a two minute walk to the nearest taverna where, like other reviewers, we received a very family friendly welcome and had great food. It is a short walk through the olive groves to the nearest beach which has a cafe/taverna and toilet.
The most outstanding feature of Moongrove has to be its roof terrace which offers both privacy and stunning views of the surrounding countryside. We slept out there one night, watching the shooting stars and the lunar ecplise. I'm not sure it gets much better than that!
I would recommend a car to get about in the local area and also to access the nearest shops although public transport is available as the bus conveniently stops at the end of the road. We took the bus to Kalamata on market day which was well worth the experience and a chance to stock up on traditional local produce.
Although a very rural location our seven year old daughter loved this holiday, snorkelling in the sea, chasing geckos and the daily trips to the bakery in Ag.Nik which sells an exquisit range of patisseries and bread.
We went to Stoupa a couple of days for a change of beach, the golden sands, pedal boat hire and ice-cream palours/gift shops. Parking can be a bit tight at peak times so I'd recommend the bus.
All in all we had a fabulous holiday and I would recommend Moongrove to any traveller who wants extremely comfortable, well maintained, tasteful and fully furnished accommodation set in a location offering a quiet, relaxing and fulfulling greek experience.

Moongrove im Oktober 09

  • 5 of 5
Die endgültige Wahl unseres Ferienhauses für unseren 2. Oktober-Urlaub auf Mani fiel auf Moongrove nach umfangreichen Recherchen im Internet. Vor dem Haus Richtung Meer Olivenbäume . Links und rechts einzelne neuerbaute Stein-Wohntürme, welche im Oktober kaum bewohnt waren. Die Innenausstatttung ist einfach, jedoch absolut sauber. Für eine 6 Personenbelegung sind die Abstellmöglichkeiten begrenzt. Das Hausumfeld ist liebevoll gestaltet. Die Dachterasse bietet unverbauten Ausblick auf das Meer und die Olivenhaine. Die Lage in Agios Dimitrios biete sich für Ausflüge in die nahen Berge, Dörfer aber auch in die südliche Mani an. Ideal auch mit dem Fahrrad tw. auf Fahrradwegen (nach Stoupa) tw. auf wenig befahrenen Straßen.
Fazit: Wir trafen die richtige Wahr für Leute, die Ruhe suchen, keinen Anspruch auf Vollausstattung bzw. große Wohnflächen legen und einfach relaxen und die Gegend erkunden wollen.
Conclusion: It was a great experience for us at Moongrove. Especially the support and service of the owner has to be mentioned in a very positiv manner.

Owner's Response: Johann and Teresia were perfect guests who were able to enjoy Moongrove at its best, appreciating the beauty of a traditional house that is able to offer the tranquility and qualities desired by a lot of independent travellers who seek something a little 'off piste' as far as holidays are concerned. Johann and Teresia left the house beautifully clean and they were proud to state they treated MoonGrove like there own home which is delightful for us to feel they felt that comfortable. We were delighted they loved the house as much as we do and are welcome back anytime.
Moongrove is a lovely house to enjoy hidden Greece that is often promised in brochures but not delivered. See below the feedback in English via translation online.

The highlight of our holiday!

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I stayed at Moon Grove cottage in August 2008 for 5 days as part of our 3 week trip around mainland Greece. We had a wonderful time there - one of our best holidays yet! The property is truly charming and has all the personal touches and comforts of a well loved home. The most spectacular feature of the cottage is the roof terrace from which we enjoyed a drink on an evening with a crystal clear picture of the Milky Way above our heads and the frequent appearance of a shooting star! It is in a quiet location, nestled amongst the olive groves, yet within walking distance to the sea which again can be appreciated while relaxing on the roof terrace. We recommend you have a car to see all that this beautiful region has to offer from the rich archaeological sites to the small fishing villages with their typical Greek hospitality and even the more popular fun beaches not too far away.
Moon Grove cottage has charm and character and its location is to be envied.

A perfect holiday cottage and locaction

  • 5 of 5
Moongrove has the most stunning location, in the middle of an olive grove between the mountains and the sea. The perfume from the wild sage is something I shall never forget, nor is watching the sun come up from behind the mountains while doing yoga on the roof terrace. The accommodation is both comfortable and tasteful, and the cottage has everything you need for a fantastic holiday. I can't wait to go back.
