Wonderful stay with Gabi and Ed!
2 weeks in Aug 2016 spent at Gabi and Ed's wonderful house in Peleponnese. A beautiful location with stunning panoramic views of the most beautiful valley to the Sea. Perfect rooftop apartment and terrace, everything that our family needed and wonderfully looked after by Gabi and Ed. Ideally located for visits to Messene, Olympia, Pylos and exploring the hills and nearby temples. Stunning beach (and Seagull beach bar) only 5 minutes away and choice of excellent tavernas nearby. Can recommend to all for a great holiday in a beautiful and undiscovered part of Greece.
Thank you very much for your lovely comments. The spectacular views and the starry nights will await your return.
The area of the Neda Valley is unique to Greece as it combines mountain, lake, sea, beaches, rivers, waterfalls and very many old style villages where you can meet the hospitality and warmheartedness of the locals. Here you will meet the Real Greek Greece!
For lovers of ancient Greek cultural heritage, The area is the pivotal point for a visit to Ancient Olympia, birthplace of the Olympic Games, Navarino Bay, Gialova Lagoon and numerous ancient sites such as Peristeria, Figalia, Messini, Ithomi, Methoni Castle and Nestor's Palace, the prehistoric wall in Lepreon, It is the perfect place to experience authentic Greek nature and culture.
In the surrounding mountains lie rustic stone villages, historic towers, caves, tombs, waterfalls and panoramic views. The intact marble Temple of Apollo at Vassae, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is an hours drive away.
The nearby beach resort village of Kalo Nero is 20 mins away located on a 2.5 km stretch of beach, with both organised and secluded natural areas including sea turtle nests. Small sea front tavernas with authentic Greek food, fresh fish and live traditional music. Swimming pool bar inc kids pool. The beach extends north for 60km along the shores of the Bay of Kyparissia, with its wide sandy beaches lined by sand dunes, coastal forest and watermelon fields.
The cosmopolitan market towns of Kyparissia, Zacharo and Pyrgos are within 30 mins drive with all facilities including banks, supermarkets, nightclubs and car hire as well as ancient castle ruins.
The Kyparissia/Zacharo/Pyrgos area has something to interest you and the family all year and the winters are mild.
Easy access from Kalamata airport (1 hour) and Araxos (1.45 hours) or Athens (3 hours). The ferry port of Patras is less than 2 hours.
In July and August traditional village fiestas are held with much feasting and Greek dancing. Late autumn sees the start of the annual olive harvest and bird migrations south.
Winter fun, skiing and snowboarding at reasonable prices can be found at Mainalo Ski Centre (1.30 hrs drive).
You can of course try your hand at Olive Picking in December. Here you will be shown how the trees are prepared and the olives are picked from the trees (the old fashioned way). The olives are sorted and bagged and taken to the Olive pressing mill where you can watch the process of producing your own olive oil.
Spring brings meadows of wild flowers, Easter celebrations and the return of the nesting sea turtles.
Of course the beautiful long sandy beaches and the wooded mountainsides with their flowing streams and gorges and the exquisite areas of Kaiafas Lake with its Hot Springs and the Neda Valley and Waterfalls will guarantee a relaxing and unforgettable visit.
