We had a great holiday. House is brilliant for families - lots of space and a garden for kids to play. Family who owns the house is very helpful and nice. House was clean and the kitchen had a wide range of utensils. Lots to see and do in the area. I would return tomorrow : ).
We planned to visit many places !
We came here with so many places planned to visit with an agenda for every day and then Methoni worked its charm on us and we have just relaxed and fallen in love with the place. The Villa has been fantastic, perfect location and you feel like a true local.
We'd recommend going around Methoni Castle, Zanzibar Beach bar for lunch and seeing the sunset, Voidikilia beach and Koroni town with its views from the castle. Palio Historia restaurant is excellent and so is the bar opposite with Hercules (!) probably the best bar owner ever ! Get a Cappucino Freddo, relax and enjoy.
We'll remember this!!
We have had a wonderful time here enjoying Methoni and Villa Aleiki. Our three children will remember this for a long time to come. Such a great set-up for three young children and great kindness from Nigel and Fiona. The only downside is letting the children know that dinner out every night at 9 pm will not go on forever !
Lovely authentic Greek villa
We had a wonderful stay in this lovely authentic Greek villa in a peaceful back street in beautiful Methoni. Fiona and Nigel made sure we were happy and were very helpful with local information. On their recommendation we found the fabulous waterfall at Shinnalaka, as well as Golden Bay and the stunning horseshoe bay of Voldokillia. Nigel and Fiona organised a hire car for us which was very reasonable and easy pickup and drop off. They left us some of their delicious olive oil too. The villa is comfortable and beautifully decorated with an efficient shower and 2 loos, always useful. The local church bells are a bit of a surprise but you do get used to them. Will look forward to returning sometime soon.
Thank you so much for staying with us for a whole month ! We're very pleased that you enjoyed it and are thinking of returning. Methoni is a real Greek village and even though the population is only in the hundreds, cafes, tavernas and shops are open all year round. It is relaxed enough that you can make friends with the locals while you are here. Methoni is an excellent base for a long stay as the car hire costs can be kept to a minimum. Our local car hire company can usually deliver to the Villa so that no precious beach time is lost. And by the way, the church bells do not ring at night - but they do make the most of the Sunday service !
We very much enjoyed Aleiki villa and Methoni
My wife and I enormously enjoyed our four weeks in Aleiki. We are both retired; our son and daughter, in their mid-twenties, joined us for a few days, and were as enthusiastic about the villa and about Methoni as we were.
The villa and garden had plenty of room for us, was well equipped and in good order. Nigel and Fiona were very helpful.
Between us we have had many holidays in Greece, mainly in islands, with a few on the mainland (I was in Kalamata and the Mani for a week rather a long time ago). Methoni was for us a real find. We arrived after the hottest weather (which was a plus for us), also after the tourist peak. Methoni is a delightful place – not at all over-touristified (and we would guess much the same even in July and August).
The villa is well placed for the beach (sandy), and for shops and tavernas/kafenions (of which we ate and drank in ten or a dozen – a great variety which we much enjoyed). Methoni castle is quite extraordinary.
We hired a car after ten days or so, but you don’t need one to get around Methoni.
We would certainly recommend the villa and Methoni to friends and family.
Typical Greek villa, filled with calm and comfort.
The house is fantastic, it has everything you need for living in a house. The interior has a unique style and the garden is really something special, perfect for calm ad peace. Since the house is next to the city main street you have all the shops at a 2 minute walk, and if wanted you can completely forget using the car.
Temperature as well as the view is perfect and you'll immediately notice the bells playing every hour.
The house owners are absolutely 2 wonderful people, kind, available and very pleasing to chat with. We also really enjoyed staying with the new arrival: a small and friendly cat.
Surely a place we'll never forget and a vacation of unique beauty.
Bordered by a long sandy beach (with safe shallows), a C.13th Venetian castle to explore and great restaurants, cafes, and shops, everything you need for a perfect holiday is right here. A car is not a necessity.Take an evening stroll 300metres behind the cottage to the clifftops to see the sun set over the sea ( ther's also a little bar up there). Untouched by development, Methoni is friendly and traditional; you'll soon feel like a local. Try Andreas' taverna - 1 minute's walk from your door for some of the best local and innovative dishes in the Peloponnese. There are regular buses from the stop just around the corner for trips to Pylos or further afield and boat trips to the island of Sapienza. The peninsula is great for cycling and if you do wish to hire a car the sites and museums of ancient Olympia, Messini and Nestor's palace are a must, as well as stunning Voidokilia beach - one of the best in Europe.
