About Vassilios Psonis

Retired diplomat

Vassilios Psonis purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Vassilios Psonis chose Messinia

This is my summer house. My wife and I live on the main floor while we are renting the apartment on the top floor.

There are separate entrances to the apartment and it is very private {your verandas are visible only from the sea}.

What makes this apartment unique

On the sea, spectacular views of the gulf and mountains across the bay, beautiful beaches nearby, five minute walk to the village, close to airport, Many beautiful places around to visit (Mani, Ancient Messini, Kalamata, Koroni, Methoni Pylos etc).

Villa on the sea -Top Floor Apartment

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.
