About the property

The Space

Ploes Villas comprises of 3 fully independent villas on a lush hillside mediterranean garden with a majestic view of the Ionian Sea, Zante and Kefalonia islands and right above the sandy Leventochori beach. Amazing sunsets meet total relaxation in an atmosphere of natural serenity and peace, day and night.

All villas meet the standards of and are officially licensed by the Greek National Tourism Organization (EOT) - License No.: 0415K91000454601.

Each villa measures 67 m2, accommodates 4 persons and includes 2 bedrooms, one with a queen size double bed (1.60x2.00m) and one with 2 single beds (0.90x2.00m), a bathroom with shower, a spacious living room unified with a well equipped kitchen as well as front and back outdoor terraces with pergolas. Single beds can be joined seamlessly to form a king size double bed (1.80x2.00m) upon request, thus accommodating a two couple stay.

Each kitchen is equipped with refridgerator, compact kitchen/oven, small electric chopper, toast maker, electric juicer, filter coffee maker, electric kettle and adequate flatware, glassware and dinnerware.

Living rooms have a fireplace and a 32'' flatpane LG LED TV, with USB and HDMI connectivity.

Each bedroom and living room are equipped with their own, separate A/C unit.

Interior spaces have been kept as simple and open as possible, and decorated with discreet but playful handmade objects, complemented with a light, modern touch in furniture.

The main space (living room & kitchen) is connected to the ample front terrace where you can enjoy a panoramic sea view, mesmerizing sunsets and candle-lit dinners, while both bedrooms are adjacent to the back terrace, ideal for afternoon book reading or coffee. Front terraces are equipped with a cozy sunbed that used to travel the world on board of a cruise ship, a large wooden table and 4 chairs.

Surrounding the 3 villas is a shared, common green open space, meticulously taken care of, planted with fragrant mediterranean herbs and fruit trees and covered with soft green grass, ideal for a children's playground.

Access to Leventochori beach is only 2 min. on foot through a downhill path (which might be a mild but worthwhile uphill exercise when returning from the beach).

Guest Access

The villas are fully independent, each one with its own main entrance, private terraces and facilities. The spacious surrounding space (garden & lawn) is shared, common and plenty for all visitors, as is access to the beach. The beach below the villas is shared with a small and quiet hotel and almost half of its length is unoccupied, free space. You will find it to be a very peaceful and uncrowded place.

Guests that arrive by car can reach Ploes Villas through basically 2 different ways:

• If you are travelling along the Olympia Odos Motorway (Α8/9 or E55/56) over Patras, you must turn right on the traffic lights before the entrance to Pyrgos, following the sign towards "Skourohorion", and from there on "Ploes Villas" signs will lead you along the way.

• If you are travelling along the Eastern Peloponnese Motorway (A8 or E65) pass through the city of Pyrgos, following the signs for Katakolo. After Agios Ioannis village mind a "Ploes Villas" sign on your right. From then on, follow the "Ploes Villas" signs.

Nearest airports are Araxos International Airport (GPA) at 63 km and Kalamata International Airport (KLX) at 120km. Both airports are connected with many European cities through regular charter flights during the summer season.

Athens is 300 km away. Patras with its port is 100 km away.

Interaction with Guests

Hospitality is our thing! Panos and Eftychia are continuously on site throughout the summer season, living in a small, independent house adjacent to the middle villa. They are always available and glad to assist you with any kind of recommendation, tips on sight-seeing or arrangement for activities in the surrounding area. And if you feel like it, they'll happily share a local delicacy with you over a glass of wine.

The Neighborhood

We are located between Skafidia and Leventochori villages. Picturesque Katakolo village and port, amazing Mercouri Estate Vineyards & Winery, 10th century B.C. medieval Skafidia Monastery, great kiteboarding spot Agios Ilias, the city of Pyrgos, are a breath away.

Unique Ancient Olympia, Chlemoutsi medieval castle (Killini), Neda river waterfalls, and many more are within or less than an hour drive away.

Plenty of nightlife options are available at Katakolo village, Agios Andreas, Skafidia, Kourouta and more, all at a very close driving range.

Ask us for recommendations on local restaurants and taverns, as well as for info regarding all of the above!

This is a stunningly beautiful place which way exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend the villas. The 4 hours drive from Athens is well worth it. The villas are brand new, super comfortable and the view is out of this world. The owners are the most hospitable I have ever met, very friendly, warm people who took us to the local town, for tour of the local winery and for a massage. Dinners on the patio overlooking sun setting over the Ionian Sea are a unique experience.

A home away from home, beautiful spacious villa, the views, the beach, and most of all the people.

  • 5 of 5

Villas have beautiful views, lovely landscaped grounds and fantastic beach. They are modern, clean with pleasant design and architecture. There is great attention to detail and decoration. Everything is new, clean and well maintained. Place is quiet and guarantees relaxation.

The hosts, Panos and Eftihia, are wonderful. We were greeted with a bottle of very nice Greek wine, bottle of olive oil from their own olive grove and orange marmalade homemade by Eftihia! Panos and Eftihia are among the most memorable people we have met. They are totally dedicated to guests’ comfort. They are efficient, helpful, and professional. But, above and beyond, they are genuine and warm. After our stay, we are honored to now count them among our friends. We will definitely return.

The Villas are a perfect location to explore the western part of Peloponnese. Wi-fi and Air conditioning worked well.

The sandy beach is accessed by a short well maintained, not too steep, trail. There are lounge chairs available at no charge and the water is shallow and safe to swim in. The beach is shared by one other small resort so you basically have a private beach. There are restaurants close by in a small village and Port of Katalona. Pick up some basics on your way to the Villas, since there is a well appointed kitchen.

Activities nearby include;

Ancient Olympia

Mercouri Estate

Boat tour to Zakinthos

Monastery of Skafidia

Ein magischer Ort mit wunderbaren Gastgebern!

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa, der Garten, der Strand - alles ist mindestens so schön, wie die Bilder es zeigen. Wir haben Anfang August eine einfach traumhafte Woche in der mittleren Villa verbracht und uns von der ersten Minute an wohl gefühlt.

Das Haus wirkt durch die hohe Raumhöhe sehr großzügig, ist lichtdurchflutet, geschmackvoll eingerichtet und liebevoll dekoriert. Die Betten sind wirklich bequem. Wir haben super geschlafen, auch dank Außenrollos und Mückengittern in allen Fenstern. Auf der großen Terrasse findet jeder seinen Platz, um die einfach herrliche Aussicht auf das ionische Meer und Zakynthos sowie die atemberaubenden Sonnenuntergänge zu genießen. Alle drei Tage wird geputzt und die Wäsche gewechselt.

Der Garten ist riesig und top gepflegt, viel Rasen, schöne Blumen, Oliven-, Feigen- und Zitronenbäume.

Zur kleinen, fast privaten Sandstrandbucht sind es nur 3 Minuten durch den Garten, 99 Stufen hinunter. Es gibt Sonnenschirme und Liegen für jede Villa. Das kleine Hotel an der anderen Seite der Bucht mit Strandzugang sieht ganz nett aus und stört überhaupt nicht. Ansonsten gibt es keinen weiteren Zugang. Bei Wind macht die Brandung Spaß, sonst kann man wunderbar schwimmen. Es kommen Schildkröten zur Eiablage an den Strand, wenn man Glück hat, sieht man sogar eine!

Und "last but not least" sind dann noch die Gastgeber Panos und Eftychia zu erwähnen, die sich einfach großartig um ihre Gäste kümmern. Wir wurden z.B. mit Tomaten, Feigen und Kräutern aus ihrem Garten verwöhnt.

Hoffentlich können wir nochmal wiederkommen!

Owner's Response: Liebe Petra, Vielen Dank für deine nette Worte! Es freut uns sehr zu hören, dass Ihr alles genossen habt! Es war sehr schön Euch kennenzulernen und obwohl wir normalerweise alle unsere Gäste mit Obst und Gemüse vom Garten verwöhnen, vielleicht haben wir Euch ein paar mehr gegeben! :D Ihr seid jederzeit bei uns willkommen! Liebe Grüße, Panos, Eftychia, Charalampos, Dionysis

Ploes villas excellent adress.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week early mai 2016 in one of the 3 villas. The house was clean, convenient and well equipped with everything in detail you might need. The location was peacful with an impressive free front seavieuw from the terrace of our house. Panos and his wife Efichia, living on the compound are very friendly and helpfull in case you need. If you drive your own car with GPS put Skafidia BEACH in it.Short before the end of the road (gowing down to the beach) you find on your left hand an unpaved road to the location Ploes villas a signed there. Or take care you have the telnr of Panos to help you for routing if you need so. If you like to take the dinner at a nice site: go to Katakole, where the cruises arrive and go.

We want to say once again thank you to Panos and Efichia for the great time we had!
