Overview

Katakolo Villa Rental Photos and Description

Huge garden with spectacular views and private swimming pool

Villa Feia in Korakohori is situated in a private olive grove and vineyard and overlooking a private bay with access to a private beach and views of the Ionian sea (clear day and night views of Zante and Kefallonia).The villa meets the exacting standards of the Greek National Tourist organisation (EOT) and has the required licence. A spacious and architecturally designed house (with a personal and hospitable touch), it can comfortably accommodate up to 5 people. Large veranda and garden, opened terrace, barbecue and terrace shower, garden furniture, dining area with a view of the sea and garden and a private swimmingpool are just a few of the amenities on the ground floor.. Both bedrooms on the second floor have comfortable furniture and their own balconies with breathtaking views of the sea and garden. The living room can sleep 1 person on a comfortable sofabed when needed. The livingroom also includes a dining area. All outside areas are fully lit at night and both the property and the garden are suitable for children. Its unique location and surroundings makes it a popular destination both for summer and winter travellers.

Local area - Ileia Perfecture: Important archaeological sites of Greece like Ancient Olympia, endless beaches, internationally recognized canyons with amazing journeys in nature, protected areas with rare species of animals, birds and plants, traditional residential areas that highlight the particular characteristics of each region. All of this creates a colorful picture that will amaze you and one by one you will discover the pieces that complete the puzzle of Ileia.

Climate in Ileia: Summers in Ileia are reliably long and dry with brilliant sunshine and generally calm seas. This sort of weather usually lasts from May to October, with July and August being the hottest months. In spring and autumn there is generally plenty of sun although the temperatures are lower than in the summer. December to March is the wet and windy period. In summer the wind is usually very light in the mornings, picking up around noon and dying away at sunset. Sea temperatures for swimming start at 18ºC/65ºF in May rising to 25ºC/76ºF in August and falling to 21ºC/72ºF in October. Occasionally the evenings may seem cooler so a jumper is advisable even during the summer months. Sporadic showers can occur throughout the season. In May there are wild flowers in profusion, and as June approaches there are fireflies and the water temperature is rising. Greater quantities of fruit and vegetables are available. In July and August warm seas have phosphorescence and high temperatures. September and October see the start of the grape harvest and the valleys are carpeted with cyclamen. The bracken and olive trees remain green throughout the year. Sporadic showers can occur throughout the season.

Directions: The main road that leads to Villa Feia is the highway 'Patras-Pyrgos-Ancient Olympia'. At the 91st km from Patras, just a couple of kilometers before the entrance of Pirgos City, you meet the Lasteika Crossroad and you turn right. The crossroad is controlled by traffic lights and road signs there guide us in southwest Katakolon and Skourochori. The actual roadsign reads: 'Katakolo 11klm'. We follow the road and having come across the railway line, we continue for 200 meters and then turn right again towards Skourochori. We cross Skourochori and follow the signs to Korakohori which is approximately 5 km fron Skourochori. Once in Korakochori we follow the local signs to Domaine Mercouri.

Beautyful house with kind-hearted owners!

  • 5 of 5
In the Villa Feia you can spend unique and unforgettable vacations. Due to the location there is a refreshing wind cooling you down during the hot midday hours but there is also the chance to relax and take a bath in the sun on the own beach or near the existing pool. During the night you can fall asleep while listening to the calming sounds of the sea.

The modern and nice interior offers the possibility to spend a nice and calm evening with the family, as well as having celebrations with more friends. Therefore the charcoal barbecue can be used as well, whereas the owner of the house is always looking forward to having a nice barbecue evening and supports you with the tools needed. 2 bathrooms, a washing machine, kitchen and available Wi-Fi internet makes your stay perfect.

The owners Anna and Panos are kind-hearted people, typical Greeks, which are always taking care about the renter and their well-being. Due to their house nearby they can always help you in a case of emergency.

From own experiences and 3 vacations spent in this house the Villa Feia is surely one of the most beautiful places on Peloponnesus!

magnifique !

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons séjourné 10 jours à villafea qui est un lieu paradisiaque. L'accès direct à une petite crique mer, la piscine, le magnifique jardin, la vue époustouflante font de ce lieu un endroit magnifique. L'accueil des propriétaires, Anna et Panos ainsi que Saskia, qui habitent la villa à côté est chaleureux !
Nous y retournerons très volontiers!

Private and remote place with fabulous sea

  • 5 of 5
The villa is described fairly and precisely in the listing. Exact location is provided and all important moments mentioned. It is very clean and well-maintained.

Owners take good care of the property and holiday makers. All basic stuff that doesn't require good English is solved quickly, anything else is via phone or email to the very helpful niece with perfect English.

We would recommend this property to those who like remote locations, privacy and quiet comfort. The sea was fascinating. It was magnificent to have immediate approach to the depth where we could swim with masks and flippers (flippers were kindly offered by the owners). The sea may not be suitable for small children but there are beaches nearby that are.

Not a lot of tourist infrastructure around this place apart from amazing Ancient Olympia town and in particular "The Garden Taverna" in Europa hotel. Mercury vineyard is awesome and is within walking distance. A trip for a day or two to Zakynthos is highly recommended, especially Mario's boat tour there.

Excellent vacation house by the sea

  • 5 of 5
Our experience started with the reservation. We got prompt responses to our questions and a lot of additional infomration about the area and what things we can do.

The house is on a property which sits on a cliffside overlooking the ocean - you can hear the ocean from the bedrooms. It is in a quite location and the backyard is very spacious allowing for kids to play, sunbake or having a glass of wine overseeing the ocean. It is about 2 miles from Kalakolo which also has a supermarket. It is also about a mile from Agios Andreas beach which is great for swiming and outdoor restaurant.

There were two bedrooms upstairs which are spacious and comfortable with a bathroom. I have to say - hotwater was great !! There are two balconies upstairs, one overseeing the ocean and the other the front yard - hence you could switch depending on where the sun is.

Downstairs we had a kitchen so we could cook breakfast and dinner. There was also a small washing machine so you could do laundry if you wanted. The living room had two day beds and a TV with lots of DVDs in both Greek and English.

There is a big table outside for outside entertainment. We spent many nights playing cards and other games.



The owners Anna and Panos were great - they were very responsive to any request we had and were a pleasure to interact with.

I would definetely stay here again and know anyone who stays here will have a great experience.

Warm days Cool marble

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in the perfect hospitality of Anna and her lovely guest home. The setting is awesome and secluded but just a short drive from the sweet little village. The area is such a delight of beaches, restaurants, villages and a wonderful vineyard and winery.
The house was spacious enough but the outdoor areas were so nice we spent every evening there. The setting on the Ionian Sea is beyond compare. Anna is an accomplished artist and one of her paintings now hangs in my house.
