About the property

2 bed, 1 bath, huge veranda, amazing view, watch & hear the sea from every room

This is a two bedroom apartment occupying the top floor of our private villa. It has a huge veranda overlooking the sea with breathtaking views of the Messinia Bay and the Taygetos mountains. Right on the waterfront and just 15 meters from the sea, with private access. The apartment entrance is reached through an outside staircase, it has a modern fully equipped kitchen, 40 inch tv, a satellite dish, dvd player (upon request) and air condition in each bedroom. Sleeps 4 persons comfortably. Secure parking. There are two small beaches located about 100 meters from the apartment, one to the right and the other to the left of the property. There are also plenty of other beaches only a few minutes drive away.

The property is only a 7 minute walk from Petalidi square, where you will find restaurants, tavernas, super markets, bakeries, bank, post office and a fish market with fresh fish every day sold directly by the fishermen. The village marina can host your boat for free.

Petalidi is conveniently located half an hour's drive to Kalamata (25 km), to Koroni (25 km,) and to Pylos (35 km). Methoni is 40 minutes away, as is Finikounda. You can reach the motorway, located just outside Kalamata, in 20 minutes, and from there you can drive to Mani in less than 1 hour as well as to Athens (2 hours drive).

There are plenty of activities to enjoy locally, especially during the summer months: swimming, fishing, boating and other water sports activities, as well as cycling, hill walking (trekking), horse back riding (5 minutes from Petalidi), tennis (5 minutes away), golf (45 minutes away at Costa Navarino golf course), and more.

Lots of beach bars nearby where you can go swimming or just enjoy the music and a drink. And for those interested in culture, there is the Koroni Music Festival which runs from May to October, while the Kalamata International Ballet Festival takes place each July.

Ancient Messini, an archeological site not to be missed, is only 40-45 minutes drive from Petalidi, while Nestor's Palace, not far from Pylos is also 45 minutes away. The Polylimnio waterfalls are only 15 minutes from the property, while the internationally famous Voidokilia beach is a 45 minute drive away.

So much better than good

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is nailed onto the waterfront; is light and airy with doors to the wide wrap around balcony from the two bedrooms and the living area . Direct sun from dawn to dusk if you want it. Stunning views across the water to the mountains and down the coast - which are particularly satisfying while dining al fresco in the evening

Multi-lingual owners Vassilios and Rosemary are charming and kind. Unexpected and welcome gifts on arrival included chilled drinks (including homemade wine) and later in the week a full plate of freshly cooked stuffers peppers and tomatoes

The town is a short stroll away. It is laid back and has a little bit of everything. On our last night the town square was packed for traditional dancing

The first taverna on the water from the apartment (just past the harbour but which doesn't have a name) is great. Your selected fish will be cooked according to the proprietor's recommendations. Inexpensive. Great value.

This was our first visit to the Peloponnese and it won't be our last

Highly recommended

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon moment dans cette maison idéalement située à proximité de toutes les commodités mais à l'écart de la foule et du bruit. Les deux propriétaires sont charmants et aux petits soins pour nous. A coup sûr nous reviendrons dans cette maison au confort "haut de gamme" (machine à laver, grande baies vitrées, immense terrasse....). Et si vous avez le bras à peine plus long que la moyenne vous pouvez toucher la mer ;) Famille Gailliègue

Petalidi is located in Messinia, in south-west Pelopponese, 25 kilometers from Kalamata (the local capital), which has an international airport servicing flights from many European cities. It is is a short drive away from the beautiful seaside towns of Koroni, Methoni, and Pylos, famous for their Venetian castles as well as their views and nightlife. Finikounda is another nearby seaside resort with a vibrant nightlife.

For those interested in history, the property is located a 30 minute drive away from Ancient Messini, one of Greece's best preserved ancient cities which has been recently excavated and boasts an ancient theatre and stadium where many cultural events take place in the summer.

Ancient Pylos is a 40 minute drive from the villa, where you can visit the palace and tomb of the famous Homeric hero, Nestor.

Olympia, the original site of the Olympic Games, is approximately 90 minutes drive away.

Across the bay you can visit the very popular area of Mani and the towns of Kardamili, Stoupa, and Aghios Nikolas, as well as the world-famous Diros caves. This is a one-day trip and is highly recommended.

Kalamata is a city of 60,000 people, with a beautful sea-front and many restaurants, tavernas, shops and clubs. In addition to the airport there is also a weekly ferry service to Crete.

The entire region is famous for its high quality olive oil and olives.
