top place, quietly wonderful sunset, relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We are 6o+ and every year on this nice place. Always travelling by Ferry Ancona-Patras , car and bikes. So we can take at home best olive-oil and wine for the winter in Austria. The villa on top-place ist quiety located with garden, flowers and trees. Pergola shaded sitting areas, excellent house-wine from own wineyard. Wonderful view on the Ionion sea and sometimes to the island Zakinthos. Rocky coast with small quietly sandy beach. Best place for swimming, relaxing, for trips by bike among small villages with typical greek food.

Shopping-centers in Pyrgos. Ancient Olympia only 2o km. Katakolo old fishervillage with new port and Cruise-ships every day and also old fisherboats, restaurants, tourists and souvenirs. Friendly owners, they are living upstears in the villa , therefor always best service.

Thank You and see You next summer.

A peace of heaven,.... in Greece.

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week here with my two children, 8 and 3 and it was a perfect, peaceful, family time.

The sea is close, and the small beaches dotted along the coast near the house present us a variety of possibilities for time by the beach, all within walking distance of the house! My son loves to snorkel around the rocks and see what wildlife he can find: crabs, fish, eels,..The sea is clean, clear and fresh here.

You can watch the small fishing boats, morning and evening pass along the sea in front of the house.

* a little known fact: there is a resort that used to be a Club Med, 6 km down the coast from here* - so, all the gorgeous setting of a Club Med, and few other people! perfect.

The dogs are tied up, so no worries there with them approaching the kids, but it's nice to have them there, they let you know when anyone is approaching the house. Which doesn't happen often. this is a very rural, family, agricultural part of Greece where you can simply BE.

Katakolo is a fun day out, with fantastic shopping, restaurants, music and general busy-ness.

There 's very well known Greek vineyard 1 km away: Merkouri, worth a visit if you like your wine.

And the village itself, and surrounding villages, have a few fantastic tavernas with local food of the highest quality (we subjected it to the 'taste test!). And Soooooo kid-friendly.

The hosts are friendly, while respecting your space and will do all they can to ensure your stay is comfortable and calm.

A place like no other,... a peace of heaven,.... in Greece.

there is good phone reception, if you need that.

Un pur bonheur un havre de paix ! Une plage privee un appartementa tres aéré bref le top de la Grece

  • 5 of 5

Une petite maison decoupee en plusieurs appartements , un jardin magnifique et une plage privee a vos pieds le top ! Une proprietaire a votre ecoute, l ambiance grecque est presente car cette maison vit , un appartement tres propre ! Un petit bemol le manque de materiel pour faire la cuisine ( une casserole, un saladier des couverts en plus seraient bienvenue ) . Nous etions 6 avec 4 ado ! Mais bon cela ne nous a pas gaché le sejour ! Un jardin paradisiaque et un coucher du soleil en live face a vous tous les soirs !! Un petit air vous permet de ne pas avoir chaud. Et le soir viree à Katakolo pour deguster des glaces chez Maniera et un repas à la taverne de Jimmys 40 euros pour 6 ! Un delice , juste à cote du glacier ! Le top !!! On y retournera Pyrgos est 15 min joli petite ville sympa et Patra est a 1 heure de route pour prendre le bateau ideal ! .

Einmalige Lage mit fantastischem Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartement war einfach aber sehr schön.

Von der Lage her wurde uns nicht zuviel versprochen- das Haus - war allein & direkt an einem kleinen eigenen

Strand gelegen. Ein Supermarkt und Verpflegungsmöglichkeiten waren mit dem Auto in 10 min zu erreichen. Das Frühstück was Anna uns stellte - war ausreichend und lecker.

Definitiv weiterzuempfehlen.

Einfache Ferienwohnung in schöner Umgebung

  • 2 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung war für uns enttäuschend. Wir hatten eine Ferienwohnung mit 2 Schlafzimmer gesucht und gebucht. Diese bestand aber aus einem Schlafzimmer und einem Raum der "Küche" Wohn- und Schlafzimmer zusammen darstellte. Die "Küche" bestand aus einem Küchenschrank, einem Kocher mit 2 Herdplatten der auf einer Kommode stand und einem Kühlschrank bei dem die Tür falsch herum aufging. Wir mussten Dinge, die in der Anzeige als Bestandteile angegeben waren, jeweils einzeln erbitten, wie Toaster, Föhn, Mülleimer, Küchenhandtücher, Gartenliegen usw usw. Es gab keine Haken, an denen man etwas aufhängen konnte. Die in der Anzeige zu sehenden Fotos sind eine Auswahl aus allen drei dort vorhandenen Ferienwohnungen. Die von anderen Gästen geschilderte Freundlichkeit der Vermieter war für uns nicht wahrnehmbar. Es gab nicht einmal eine Flasche Wasser im Kühlschrank bei unserer Ankunft und gar keine "Vorräte" nicht einmal Salz. Das Bad/WC war ungepflegt und so eng, dass man Mühe hatte auf dem Klo zu sitzen.

Das Haus selbst liegt in einer wunderschönen sehr ruhigen Umgebung. Das Grundstück ist sehr gepflegt und der Platz am Meer hat eine Magie. Hiermit haben wir uns getröstet.

Wer ein sehr einfaches Leben ohne Grundstandards liebt, dem kann es gefallen.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback on your recent stay here at Genari apartments. I was most disappointed to learn that certain aspects of your holiday had not met with your expectations and run as smoothly as you had wished and I would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused. We assured that all your comments have been taken into serious consideration and all necessary action has been taken as a result of your feedback. Furthermore, we are in the process of improving all aspects of our facility. Regarding your comments, please allow me to point out the following: The main description of the apartments says clearly that “Genari apartments is a small family-run resort of three different apartments”, so your reservation was made for two people and there was no comment asking for an apartment with two different bedrooms and due this fact you stay to the apartment for two. Furthermore, the description says “Each apartment consists of a double room, a kitchen fully equipped to service up to five persons, a bathroom with shower and a living area with single beds-sofas and a window – door leading to the seafront verandas.”, so it was clear how it is the apartments. Due to the fact that you mention for an other apartment during your check in , we propose you to see also the other apartments and you finally choose this apartment. Also, the apartments are self catered for this reason we do not have any supplies in the fridge. There was a toaster, iron and iron board in the apartment and whatever you ask us we kindly offer you. Finally, we would like to thank you again for your comment as this helps us improve our service standards. We wish you the very best and we hope to see you again in Genari apartments. Yours sincerely, Anna Papageorgiou

Ein wundervoller Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir durften 2 wundervolle Wochen in dieser Anlage verbringen. Wir hatten immer Glück mit unseren Ferienhäusern aber dieser absolut wunderbare Flecken Erde übertrifft alles bisherige. Die Unterkunft ist absolut sauber und wenn etwas nicht in der Küche war haben wir es sofort bekommen. Der Platz für 2 ist allemal ausreichend und wir wurden auch mit reichlich frischen Handtüchern und frischer Bettwäsche versorgt. Alles wird aber von der Lage und der Anlage getopt: eine große und sehr gepflegte Anlage mit Grill, sogar ein Pizzaofen war dabei. Auf der sonnengeschützten Terasse konnten wir den Ausblick auf das Meer, den Sonnenaufgang oder -,untergang genießen und dieses Gefühl wird uns lange erhalten bleiben. Obwohl der Zugang zum Meer eigentlich felsig ist haben die Besitzer den Einstieg mit einer kleinen Rampe erleichtert, das Meer ist ein Traum. Sandiger Meeresboden, klares, sauberes Wasser und beim schnorcheln konnten wir auch viele Fische sehen. Auch für Kinder geeignet da es ziemlich weit sehr flach ist. Da man für die Anreise sowieso ein Auto braucht ist die Lage auch bestens geeignet für Ausflüge in ein wundervolles Land mit jahrtausende langer Geschichte. Olympia, Elis, Pyrgos, Patras und, und, und. Katakolo ist ein kleines Dorf in dem man aber alle "touristischen" Bedürfnisse wie

den Einkauf von Souvenirs erledigen kann ohne weite Wege auf sich zu nehmen.

Eigentlich sind wir immer noch in Gedanken bei "unserem" kleinen Paradies in dem wir wirklich den ganzen Streß eines Berufsjahres abladen, unsere Seele erden konnten und viele, viele neuen Eindrücke mitnehmen konnten.Danke für diesen herrlichen Flecken Erde!!!!

Ich wünsche mir wieder dorthin kommen zu können.

Why to visit Ilia:

The Prefecture of Elia combines mountain and sea and it has notable holiday settlements, with thick sand, deep blue waters and pine trees that reach up to the sea, elements that make a unique landscape for holidays, sun and swimming, while the most important archaeological sites (Olympia, Ilida) attract tourists from all over the world.

The ancient city Elis had the oversight of the Olympic games and was once the center of the region during ancient times. After the siege by the Francs (1210), Elia became the center of the Principality of Moreos and enjoyed great prosperity.

Ancient Olympia

Holy and Global town. The cradle of Hellenism.

The most significant archeological site in Greece. Located at a 35 km distance from our region, it has magnificent works of art of unique historical and artistic value that are exhibited in the museum. The most important of all is the statute of Hermes of Praxiteles, which was sculpted in 340 BC by the renowned Phidias, and was found in the temple of Hera. The first modern Olympic Games were revived here by Pier de Coubertin and Dimitrios Vikelas.The Lighting Ceremony of the Olympic Flame begins at Olympia prior to the Olympic Games.

• Temple of Apollo Epicurius

The temple of Apollo Epicurius at Bassae, Figaleia, is one of the most important and imposing temples of antiquity. The local people of Figaleia dedicated it to Apollo Epicurius (the helper) because he assisted them in overcoming an outbreak of plague. The temple stands at an impressive 1,130 m above sea level in the very heart of the Peloponnese on mountains that lie between the prefectures of Eleia, Arcadia and Messinia. It is situated 14 km south of Andritsena and 11 km northwest of Perivolia. The temple was built in the second half of the 5th century BC (420-410 BC) and has been attributed Iktinos, the architect who designed the Parthenon. This is a monument of global importance and also one of the best preserved ruins from classical antiquity and was the first site in Greece to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1986.

Part of the frieze from the temple was broken off in 1814 and is now on display in the British Museum in London.

Ancient Elis

In antiquity, Elis was the capital of the prefecture of Eleia and the city that organised and hosted the Olympic Games. Today there is a museum which includes finds brought to light by excavations such as pottery, sculptures, etc. The finds date from the Protohelladic period up to the Roman period.

THE MERCOURI ESTATE

The Mercouri Estate is located in the western Peloponnesus in Korakochori, two kilometers from Katakolo 12km from Pyrgos and 32km from Ancient Olympia. It is an old large farm with a 140- year-old history in the production of wine, olive oil and, before that, Corinthian currant raisins. It is owned by the Mercouri family which can trace its roots to Epirus and Peloponnesus. They are family with a variety of interests who have a special love for the land.

Spa Springs

In addition to giving the area rare landscapes and outstanding natural beauty, Mother Nature also endowed Greece with springs with important healing properties.

In our area the Kyllini Baths are considered to be one of the oldest, most complete and yet truly modern spa spring complexes not just in Greece but in all of Europe.

Today perhaps the most cutting edge hydrotherapy and spa centre in the European Union is in operation there.

The spa is only open during the summer from 1 June to 30 October every year and is ideal for treating conditions such as:

• bronchial and allergic asthma (inhalation therapy)

• allergic rhinitis – sinusitis (nasal rinses – nasal inhalation)

• rheumatic arthritis (baths – hamam)

At the spa's facilities and at the old Roman baths, patients and users of the facilities with skin or arthritic conditions are rubbed with mud from a sulphur-rich spring to treat their condition.
