SEA ACCESS, BALCONY ON THE IONIAN SEA, SWIMMING POOL & CLOSE TO ANCIENT OLYMPIA

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). 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.

Private and remote place with fabulous sea

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.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to post a revieuw. We really appreciate your kind words and we are very pleased that you enjoyed yourselves. We are looking forward to seeing you in the future!

Excellent vacation house by the sea

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.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, we are glad that you enjoyed yourselves! All your comments help us get better in the future!We look forward to seeing you again in the future!

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.

Beautiful villa in country side bordering the sea

Sun from early in the morning until sunset in the sea. From both sleeping rooms you can overlook both the olive gardens to the east as well as the sea to the west. Awakening by the birds. Beautiful, light and comfortable house. Its remote location guarantees rest. The owners are very friendly and helpfull, assisted by their niece Jenny on cellphone (provided!) distance. Also available for all kinds of practical information before you arrive. The owners house is on the same plot which is large enough for their and your privacy. There is direct sea access from the marvellous garden, although the elderly might prefer to drive a few kilometers to a quiet beach, when the sea is rough. Very clean, light and well equiped house with everything you need. Attractions and walking possibilities nearby and many more possibilities within a few hours by car.

Very nice house, very friendly owners, nice area. The house correspond 100% to what we saw on the advertising announce. Definitively calm - you sleep with only the noise of the birds and the waves. Far from all animated areas - for those who appreciate the real nature. The house is clean and we were changed towels and bed linen 2 times during 10 days. The rooms are nicely decorated, with attention to details. The owners are leaving the next house but are so much descrete. We enjoied the evening with BBQ and the good wine from the wine farm which is just 300 meters from the house. We recomend to visit it by the way - the children can enjoy the peacocks and the parents the greec wine. The best shop is AB Vita which is on the main road to Pyrgos - 15 min drive. The restaurants are in Kotakolo but quite touristic area, we finally avoided - 10 min drive. Do not go to Pyrgos for restaurants - really no one worthy. 3 beaches nearby but we preffered our own lagoone. We were 2 adults and 1 child. There is also 2 sleeps downstairs in the main room. Ideal location for the family with 1-2 childrens.
