TRADITIONAL FARM COTTAGE WITH CHILD-FRIENDLY 5 ACRE (15,000M2) GARDEN

Samiko Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Newly refurbished, 2 bedrooms, sleeps 5, 1.5 km walk to beach, pet friendly

Newly refurbished traditionally built farm-house set in 5 acres (15,000 square meters) of mixed orange and olive trees, on the outskirts of the village of Kato Samiko. The house stands on a small hill surrounded by its orchards, and the entire property is securely fenced to give your pets and children a safe playground. The terrace has commanding views over the orchards and surrounding fields, and the garden has just been completely remade with a wide range of newly planted flowers and shrubs. The beach is a level walk of only 1500 metres, and the village has numerous eateries and a mini-market, all within easy walking distance. Villa Thea is perfect for family holidays, and as a base for sight-seeing trips around the Peloponnese.A well-known local artist, Elainie has decorated the property herself, giving a unique feel to the house.

OUR HOLIDAY IN SAMIKO

  • 5 of 5
Elainie's house is a delightful property set in a beautiful orange grove.

The property is clean, well maintained and has everything you need to make your holiday enjoyable. We were well looked after and when we had a very minor problem it was sorted swiftly and cheerfully.

The beach is a short drive away and was not at all busy, which suited us fine.

The house is ideally situated for exploring the Peloponnese, we visited Olympia, the island of Zante, a trip into the mountains and the Lousios gorge and went down to Methoni.

There are many places to eat out in the area and a great market for shopping close by, we also enjoyed our many bbq's.

All in all an excellent holiday thoroughly recommended.

HOLIDAY IN GREACE

  • 4 of 5
The house is very nice in the middle of a park of orange and olive trees. The house is very confortable, functional and in the silence of the pelopponeso: it is near a beatiful beach and near the archeological sites ( ancient Olympia ).
Thank you

FIJN HUISJE, MOOI STRAND

  • 4 of 5
Mooi en schoon huisje met nagenoeg alles wat men nodig heeft in een zeer warme zomer: grote koelkast, airco in de buurt van de slaapkamers, goede wasmachine, fijn terras met uitzicht over de omgeving.
De eigenaresse, Elainie, is een zeer vriendelijke dame. Zij spreekt alleen Grieks, maar haar zoon spreekt ook Engels. Wij werden verwelkomd met watermeloen, verse eitjes van eigen kippen en een flesje olijfolie van olijven uit eigen boomgaard. Zoals in de beschrijving vermeld staat, zijn er badhanddoeken voor het strand, maar daar moet je wel even om vragen. Dat strand is het makkelijkst per auto bereikbaar (1.5 km. en altijd ruimte om te parkeren). Op het strand staan grote parasols en er zijn ligstoelen. Daar hoefden wij niet voor te betalen. We konden gewoon gaan zitten. Het is dan wel de bedoeling dat je bij de strandtent per persoon een drankje koopt (tegen zeer schappelijke prijzen), maar daar kun je bij wijze van spreken de hele dag 'op zitten'. De gefrituurde visjes en schijfjes aardappel zijn echter zeker niet te versmaden.
Een beetje jammer is wel dat het huisje vrij dicht bij de doorgaande weg langs de kust ligt. De passerende auto's zijn duidelijk te horen (maar niet binnen in het huisje), wat overigens ook geldt voor de krekels. In de achterste slaapkamer, waar je inderdaad doorheen moet als je naar de badkamer wilt, maar dat vonden wij niet zo'n probleem, staan twee eenpersoons bedden. Een van die bedden is echt een kinderbed en als je langer dan 1.75m bent, lig je met je voeten over de rand. Inkopen kun je in Zacharo doen (8 km.). Olympia ligt op een half uurtje rijden. Het is echter ook heel leuk en de moeite waard om de klim naar de 'eigen akropolis' te maken.
Wij hebben een prima week in dit huisje gehad.

Car: recommended

Decidedly untouristy, the area around Kato Samiko is one of the best-kept secrets of the Peloponnesus. The beach is vast, stretching out over 100 km in an unbroken curve of golden sand, backed by sand dunes and pine forest, without any major developments or resorts-you can normally find your own private stretch of beach without difficulty. Ancient sites include Olympia (25 km), The Temple at Vassai (30 km), the hot springs and spa at Kaiafas (3 km), as well as a wealth of smaller archaeological sites including our own Acropolis, just 2 km away. Shop at local markets in Zacharo (12 km) or Krestena (8 km), or the city of Pyrgos (25 km). Mountain walks and superb cycling and mountain-biking routes abound, and island-hopping day-trips to Zakinthos or Kefalonia from Kylini (50 km) for those who wish to see more than just the Peloponnesus. Virtually all the main archaeological sites of Greece are reachable by car, with the new bridge across the Gulf of Corinth making even Delphi accessible.
