VILLA PHOEBE

Methoni Villa Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering villas - each with 2 lovely bedrooms and a spacious lounge

These lovingly-restored villas created in a 150 year old village house sit in secluded gardens with orange, lemon and olive trees, private patios and pergola-covered eating areas. The perfect Summer holiday rental, here you can enjoy all the romance of ' Real Greece' with up-to-date family friendly self-catering facilities. The rear bedrooms overlook the gardens and church, (beautifully-lit at night) whilst the view from the front bedrooms of village rooftops, the Ionian Sea and the island of Sapienza is equally romantic. The villas have bathrooms upstairs and second toilets downstairs; Aleiki has a bath, Phoebe a shower. Aleiki also has a bathroom with shower in the garden and Phoebe has a private outdoor shower. This makes life with sandy kids much more convenient.The comfortable living rooms with dvd, sofabeds, wooden floors, beamed ceilings and thick stone walls, perfect for escaping the midday heat, are easy to use as 3rd bedrooms if needed. The kitchens have beautiful granite surfaces, and are fully equipped. LOTS OF REVIEWS AND MORE PHOTOS AT OUR WEBSITE - ( website link is just before the reviews section below )

Getting There: Charter flights from several UK airports fly to Kalamata May-October. From 2013 Easyjet fly direct from Gatwick to Kalamata and Ryanair fly from Milan to Kalamata. Easyjet to Athens has cheap seats if you book early. The journey is spectacular through the Taigetos Mountains - which divide the territories of the ancient kings Agamemnon (Mycenae), Menelaos (Sparta) and Nestor (Pylos). The new motorway, lined with Oleander and Cypress trees makes for an easy and pretty drive of about 2 and a half hrs to the foot of the mountains. If you decide to hire a car there are good deals with independent Greek companies at Athens airport. As you cross the Corinth Canal to the Peleponnese, a stop to admire this feat of c.19th engineering is a must. Agamemnon's palace at Ancient Myceae is well worth the short detour. .Don't hesitate to email us for further details.

More Details

Details for Villa Phoebe 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, 1 Bathroom, 1 Half Bathrooms

A fully equipped villa which is quiet and relaxing . The rear bedroom has a single bed and a small double, the front bedroom has a double bed. There is space for a cot as well. A new kitchen blends in with the 18'' thick stone walls and original features such as a mosaic marble sink outside - great for prepping salads in the sunshine ready for the barbque. A vine-draped pergola shades the dining patio and a high stone wall makes 'Phoebe' a private little haven. There's a gated parking area which doubles as a secure play area. The beach is so close it's great to go for several dips a day - take a stroll in the morning, past the bakery (the smell of fresh bread is irresistible); grab a pastry, and as your route is straight down the historic main street between the end of our little lane and the castle, you can also collect a coffee from Niko's and paper at the Newsagent opposite and have breakfast on the beach with the clear waters of the Ionian Sea lapping at your toes.

Traditional village house in traditional village

  • 5 of 5
Pheobe is a very homely stone house with all the comforts we needed, without being over-the-top in terms of luxury trimmings. The garden is very pretty and private for breakfast or evening meal, with both sunshine and shade and the seemingly constant buzz of cicadas.

For our family (two teenage daughters) the location was perfect. We like to be in among the villagers and able to easily walk everywhere. There is a permanent population in Methoni so even out of season there would be a good bar and restaurant nearby and an interesting flow of locals to and fro along the small main street. It's not a picture perfect place, it doesn't have fancy shops, but it's real! Old men watching the world go by as they flick their worry beads, women practising traditional dancing in a village hall, an open air movie night for the kids...

In summer the choice of tavernas and beach bars was really good and everyone friendly - we ended up eating out pretty much all the time because of the great prices and variety. The main square and beach are an easy stroll from Pheobe, as is the vast castle with its wild interior. The beach may not be the best ever but the water is beautiful and as you swim you have stunning views of mountains and stylish boats moored off. The 'tourists' are mainly Greek families (of all ages) so the atmosphere is lively but appealingly low key.

Fiona and Nigel are very fond of their Greek neighbours and lifestyle and gave us plenty of useful and enthusiastic advice as well as thoughtful extras like home grown oil and blueberries. Thank you both so much! We will definitely come back.

Perfect Family Holiday Rental!

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent three and a half weeks in Greece. We spent the first two in Nigel and Fiona’s villas in Methoni and we spent the last week at their place in Gialova. Each of the locations was wonderful. The accommodations were even nicer than the pictures convey, they were extremely clean, and well-stocked. Furthermore, Nigel and Fiona were glad to provide everything we needed from DVDs for our kids (and the villas were great for kids with plenty of room) to tips about sites to see to advice on the best boat rentals and most beautiful beaches to explore. The location of the villas is also perfect—we loved exploring the Peloponnese from Methoni and Gialova. These villas—and their gracious owners—helped make for a perfect holiday for our family.

Parfaits !

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful days in a beautiful house in a beautiful town in a beautiful…country !

Chagall, Grisette et Marguerite, les 3 chats du voisinage, seront les meilleurs temoins de notre voluptueux bonheur dans cet endroit paradisiaque. En arrivant, nous avons trouvé une maison jolie et bien pratique, avec, sur le chemin de la mer, plein de commerçants sympas. Les propriétaires ont été discrets et serviables, souriants et accomodants. Parfaits !

J'espère que noue aurons la chance de revenir encore et encore.

Merci pour tout. Et n’oubliez pas quelques croquettes et du lait (écrémé ) pour les chats. Ils se laisseront bien apprivoiser un jour ….

At the beach every day

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at your beautiful house very much for our small family ( we and our son 2 years ) It was the first holiday for the two of us in which we are at the beach every day. The landscape around with its marvellous beaches is a dream. We spent our evenings grilling fish and meat on the cosy terrace and garden. Our son liked the thousands of different toys and of course the DVD collection very much. Thanks for that. And thank you very much for the olive oil and feta . Both were great.

A wonderful two weeks.

  • 5 of 5
The house was extremely comfortable and well designed. The air conditioning in the bedrooms excellent. Nigel and Fiona were kind and helpful and it was delightful to meet them. The garden is really beautiful, shade and sun in just the right places – the aubergines were almost ready for harvesting when we left and we sampled the abundant supply of grapes. We travelled to Olympia one day – the coast road was interesting for the two hours driving – the site has many trees providing shade – the archaeological remains and the athletic stadium were simply stunning – also at Ancient Messina where we ate at a small tavern overlooking the site in the mountains. There are many good taverns in Methoni, we would particularly recommend Kastro’s where the host Adam, made us very welcome. We took a boat trip to Sapienza – strongly recommended – the boatman took us walking in the forest we met wild goats and swam off a tiny white sand beach in the most perfect sea ! A wonderful two weeks.

A very nice week.

  • 5 of 5
Dimanche 19 Juillet 2009
A very nice week.
We love this house. We could live here. And the garden.
Methoni is a pleasant village and the castel is very beautiful. The life is sweet here.
One perfect walk in this very nice place : a nice old castle, a beautiful beach which is accessible by foot, some typical tavernas with authentic Greek food, a house which is so perfectly in agreement with our taste, a wonderful garden. We are now leaving for our second week in Tolo close to Napflio, a little bit cautious… are we going to appreciate our new house ( certainly not as much as this one ) ?
This is one of the best places where we have been for our holidays. We will certainly come back one day.

Car: not necessary

Bordered by a long sandy beach (with safe shallows), a C.13th Venetian castle to explore and great restaurants, cafes, and shops, everything you need for a perfect holiday is right here. A car is not a necessity.Take an evening stroll 300metres behind the cottage to the clifftops to see the sun set over the sea ( ther's also a little bar up there). Untouched by development, Methoni is friendly and traditional; you'll soon feel like a local. Try Andreas' taverna - 1 minute's walk from your door for some of the best local and innovative dishes in the Peloponnese. There are regular buses from the stop just around the corner for trips to Pylos or further afield and boat trips to the island of Sapienza. The peninsula is great for cycling and if you do wish to hire a car the sites and museums of ancient Olympia, Messini and Nestor's palace are a must, as well as stunning Voidokilia beach - one of the best in Europe.
