The Anchorage is a traditional Greek cottage that has been sympathetically refurbished to suit the needs of 21st century travellers. It is the ideal place for a couple looking for a quiet, romantic getaway within a stone's throw from a beautiful, golden beach. A gentle, 20 minute stroll brings you to the Venetian castle of Koroni and beyond lies the shops and amenities of the town. Along the harbour there are many cafes and tavernas.
Koroni is a thriving community with an Arts Festival. Concerts and exhibitions are arranged from May to October. this area of the Peloponnese benefits from a sunny climate with blue skies and a quality of light that inspires local artists. It seldom rains in July and August and with the temperatures over 25 degrees it has a near perfect climate from April to October.
Koroni benefits from direct flights with Easy Jet from Gatwick to Kalamata and also British Airways and Thomas Cooke use this airport which is 45 minutes by car from the cottage - transfers can be arranged for a reasonable charge. Athens international airport is 3.5 hours away by car using a very good motorway system.
The cottage is used by the owners for a significant period of the year and as a result it feels more like staying in your own home than a holiday let. The property is surrounded by a large terrace which is partly shaded. It is a lovely place to sit and enjoy a meal whilst taking in the view of the bay and the Taygetos mountains beyond. The well stocked garden has a shaded seating area and there is off road parking. Within the cottage there is everything you could need, fast speed broadband, a washing machine, a very well equipped kitchen, air conditioning an outside barbecue and even a small telescope to view the night sky.
Zaga beach, just two minutes down a path from the cottage, is home to nesting turtles. The clear, turquoise waters of the sea are inviting for early morning swims or to cool down later in the day. On the beach there is a windsurf and bike rental centre for guests who feel more active. The Anchorage is a truly romantic hide away. All our visitors , as shown by their reviews and their comments in the visitor's book, have been overwhelmed by the beauty of the location and the charm of the cottage.
