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!

Urlaubserlebnis vom Besten!

  • 5 of 5

Es ist immer einfach schön, wenn eine Erwartung übertroffen wird: die Lage, das Haus einwandfrei sauber und umfangreich ausgestattet mit allem Komfort; die liebevoll gepflegte Anlage- und Gartenanlage (mit der Erlaubnis zur Selbstbedienung!) und die Menschen, die sich vorbildlich um ihre Gäste kümmern - einfach erstklassig! Die 3 Häuser liegen erhöht auf einem großen Wiesen- und Gartengrundstück mit unglaublichem Blick auf das Meer. Weg vom Trubel, und Tourismus, trotzdem mit PKW alles kurz und gut erreichbar, was man so braucht (kulinarische Tipps inkl. Begleitung der Besitzer sind vom Feinsten!) und rein in Urlaubsentspnanung pur vom ersten Tag - für uns als Familie war es mit Sicherheit eines DER Hightllights unserer Urlaubsreisen. Soviel steht fest: wir kommen wieder!

Absolut traumhafte zwei Wochen in Griechenland

  • 5 of 5

Die Anlage sieht so aus wie auf den Bildern, es ist nichts "geschönt". Sehr gepflegtes Anwesen mit 3 Häusern. Alles war absolut perfekt, einige Punkte möchten wir aber noch extra hervorheben:

Die sehr nette Betreuung durch Panos und Efi, sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich. Man bekommt immer wieder Leckereien angeboten, in unserem Fall Feigen, Tomaten aus dem Garten, Kekse und allerlei selbstgemachtes. Unvergesslich!!!

Wir haben in den 2 Wochen 3 mal frische Handtücher und Bettzeug bekommen.

Es gibt am Strand eine Süßwasser-Dusche - sehr angenehm. Es sind ausreichend Liegen und Sonnenschirme am Strand ( nur für die Hausgäste )

Die Klimaanlage im Haus war ein Segen, sogar so leise, dass wir sie nachts zum Schlafen anlassen konnten. ( bei uns hatte es zw. 35 und 38 Grad tagsüber )

Wir waren mit dem eigenen Auto dort und waren relativ reiselustig. Sehr empfehlenswert aus unserer Sicht ist die Neda - Schlucht, das war unser Highlight. Wir sind die Schlucht vom Parkplatz aus im Flußbett hoch und wieder runter gewandert. Das Wasser war herrlich und es war keine Menschenseele in der Schlucht unterwegs. Das meiste kann man laufen, an manchen Stellen ist das Wasser aber so tief, dass man schwimmen muss. ( Autoschlüssel in Plastiktüte unter der Mütze transportiert ) Man muss aber aufpassen, nach Regenfällen wohl sehr gefährlich.

Als Restaurant können wir den Freund von Panos empfehlen, er hat wohl neben der Wirtschaft noch eine Landwirtschaft, das Essen war super. ( Am besten Panos fragen )

Alles in Allem würde ich dieses Domizil auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen: Fünf Sterne, mehr geht leider nicht.

Owner's Response: Liebe Carmen, Helge und Kinder, Ihr seid sehr süße Leute! Danke sehr für die freundlichen Worte. Es freut uns zu lesen, dass ihr unsere kleine, leckere Geschenke genossen haben, da wir lieben es immer unsere Hausgäste zu verwöhnen! :) Die Neda-Schlucht ist tatsächlich ein Muss-Tagesreise, wie auch ein paar neue verborgene Ziele noch, die wir auch erst jetzt entdeckt haben (fürs nächsten Mal!). Es sieht so aus, ihr habt da eine tolle Zeit gehabt! Auf jeden Fall sind in unserer Region viele schöne Geheimnisse zu entdecken. Es hat uns besonders gefreut euch kennenlernen zu haben, und wir erwarten euch jederzeit wieder hier! Liebe Grüße, Panos, Eftichia | Ploes Villas
