We live in UK working professionals but visit our second home as much as we can . purchased this cottage in 2004

Why chose Messinia

This is a beautiful home you can have just for your selves and family. We find people are bored of hotels and small apartments wanting privacy and the experience of living in the country they visit is so much more popular to the experienced traveller.

What makes this cottage unique

You gave the house to yourself. A lovely walk to beach. Star gazing on the roof terrace.

A charming stone cottage built in local style set in olive grove and a few minutes from the sea

  • 5 of 5

Moongrove was exactly as we expected - a brilliant roof terrace for star gazing, a variety of other outside spaces for sun/shade/vistas... and very close both to the beaches, to the mountains, and to the charming harbour of Aghios Nikolaos, with its welcoming bars and tavernas. The property was shipshape and easy to keep clean. The owners sent very full information pack which was very helpful, and were very forthcoming and relaxed. We would definitely recommend this property.

A peaceful, relaxing and comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

The property is ideally locate for anyone who wishes to have a peaceful holiday. The interior was spotless, interesting and extremely comfortable. It felt like every imaginable need had been thought about and cared for. The beds were really comfortable and I particularly liked the differnt outdoor terraces which had lovely features. THe view from the roof is simply stunning and the local beaches were clean, well facilitated and with crystal blue waters. The local village has some great tavernas , bars , ice cream parlours supermarkets, touristic shops and lots of local colour while not being overly developed. A very special place well worth visiting. an authentic Grek experience . IF you visit Moongrove you will not regret it!

Beautiful Property in a stunning location. Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Moongrove was the perfect place for a relaxing break. It is a very, very pretty stone house nestling among the olive groves. The house and garden had everything we needed for our stay, including Wifi and a really great sound system. The view from the roof terrace is amazing and it's the perfect place to sunbathe. We loved that we could easily walk to the nearest beach (through the olive groves and wild flowers!) but the house is perfectly located for exploring the Mani region by car too. The property was very clean and nicely presented with a lovely coastal feel. The beds were really comfy too - we slept really well.

The only thing we didn't like was that we only had a few days there!!! I can definitely recommend this property and will return.

I think we found paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Moongrove was exactly what we were looking for. A beautiful stone house with the most peaceful garden overlooking a typical Mani olive grove. It was so quiet, the only sounds we heard during the day were the Cicadas. No traffic, no people. The house was outfitted with everything, you only need to bring food and wine and perhaps that novel you´ve been wanting to read, but never have the time. Time really stands still here. The highlight was the roof garden, where we enjoyed every evening with a 360° view of our surroundings sipping wine, eating olives and feta, watching the sunset, then laying under the stars until the wee hours. Moongrove is the closest thing to paradise that we have found in a long time. I look so forward to going back there next year and bringing our adults kids with so that they too can literally wind down and find peace of mind from their everyday busy lives. Hats off to this perfect Greek vacation place!

The best holiday ever :)

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband and our dog spent in Moongrove autumn 2013 and spring 2014. It was lovely time in a magic place. 2 bedrooms main house is very cosy, well equiped, clean, in walking distance to the beach and to the best taverna in the village. There is an olive grove around the house. During sunny days you can seat in shadow of olive tree on the terrace, and listen music of cicades. At night sitting on roof terace you can see starry sky. The mediterranean-style decorated cottage gives privacy and is ideal for example for teenagers or guests.

We would recommend Moongrove to people who need comfortable, accommodation offering quiet and relaxing experience and who like long walking with a dog.

The owners did their best to make us feel at Moongrove as in a family house. We hope to visit Moongrove again <3
