Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is situated in a huge garden with olive, pine and fig trees, where you can take a rest away from the high temprature.



We enjoyed our morning coffees under the shade tree and on the balconies, which had a great view of the sunset.



The house itself was beautiful, tastefully decorated, and had all the amenities we needed, while everything was clean and well maintained.



It's a good location for travelling to lots of historical places like Sparta or Olympia, as well as for visiting marvelous beaches, mountains and other interesting places.



The owners were very kind & hospitable, and welcomed us with great enthusiasm.

Very good property, noisy location along busy road

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had a pleasant stay at Villa Lena. The owners were very kind, welcoming, good at communicating with us, and the property was well organised, even with some initial freebies (some fruits, bottle of Ouzo). Basics such as soap, oil and vinegar, etc. were there too.

The property is lovely and the garden magnificient. Also the garden is surrounded by walls all around so it's very safe for kids. The view of the bay is wonderful.

It is not perfect though, a few things to be noted:

- The road is noisy. Very noisy in fact, day and night. So although the house looks peaceful, there is constant cars, trucks and motorcycles passing in the background

- The third bedroom is a mezzanine inside the second bedroom (no door, just stairs to it). Fine for us as we were a family, but would not work for 3 couples as two couples would sleep pretty much in same room.

- The description gives the impression of a semi-private beach available to the house. But it's not really the case. You need to walk 150m along the very busy road (no sidewalk - very dangerous for kids) before going down another 50 meters to a beach mined by sea urchins. So we didn't use that.

The Hotel Messinia Bay let us use their swimming pool free of charge for the duration of our stay (we bought a few drinks and dined there once) so the kids loved that.

So the house and owners get 5 stars. Then the noise takes it down to 4 stars. And then the innacurate description of the third bedroom and semi-private beach takes it down to 3 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you for positive comments. Concerning your notes: - House is located 30 m from road; road is not highway, it is local road. Of course there is some traffic; but we did not have such a complain before. - Of course, house is not suitable for 3 adult couples. We do not accept such a booking; it is for a 6-persons family. - we do not mention anywhere that there is private beach since private beaches not allowed. Existance of urchins is a proof that the sea is clean. Anyway, we indicated the urcins-free ways to get into the sea.

Lovely home with fabulous seaview

  • 5 of 5

Panos, the owner met us close to the villa, and directed us to his lovely home. We arrived late, not aware that he would be driving back to Athens a 3 hr drive! They left some treats and watermelon which was very kind of them especially when we were arriving so late with two boys! . The house is well appointed, and geared for outdoor living, with a lovely massive marble table out in the beautiful gardens. Panos was very receptive to our earlier email questions, and issues such as the coffee maker not working a day after we arrived, and had it replaced immediately. The villa was very clean, well taken care of inside and outside. The small store across the way was wonderful to pick up small items, etc., and helpful in telling us we could park our very large 9 passenger van in the area, rather than trying to deal with trying to turn around on the property, which was hugely helpful. We visited Olympia as well as Stoupa in the area, local coffee shops and restaurants, and the fresh market, which was great to experience and pick up items for our Greek friend, Manos to cook for us! Kalamata was a plesant change from the touristy areas in Greece that we had visited prior to our arrival. The ride from Athens to Kalamata is gorgeous through the mountains, and tunnels, on a wonderful highway, with stopping at Cornith along the way, where the boys saw someone bungee jumping! .

Definitely recommend this property to everyone. A great place to return to after a busy day out and about. Great breezes and a relaxing garden to sit in and have dinner with the great sea view looking back to the town of Kalamata with their lights, etc. Very relaxing. .

Villa Lena - a spectacular villa

  • 5 of 5

The property is a spectacular with amazing views in a fascinating area.

The villa itself is beautiful, spotlessly clean and filled with everything you could possibly need.The owners are tremendous hosts and they made the holidays very easy for us. We would definitely stay in the Villa Lena again if traveling to this region of Greece.

A perfect holiday in Kalamata

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and well equipped house with lots of greenery. Nice garden to enjoy your breakfast and evening drinks under the trees. No concern about kids playground, lots of space to play and enjoy themselves.

It is close to Kalamata city, local market and easy to travel to many nice beaches in the area.

Panos and Lena made sure that we have eveything we need so as to enjoy our holiday in Greece.

Highly recommended!

Perfect oasis

  • 5 of 5

Villa Lena has been our oasis of recreation this summer when we were in Kalamata preparing and celebrating our wedding.

It´s a beautiful house with an enormous garden in which you can pick figs right from the trees or barbecue and enjoy the private retreat for one night.

There´s is an amazing view on Kalamata bay, and 100 meters away you can find a way down to the cliff coast, where you can enjoy the beach and the sea all by yourself. There´s also a small supermarket across the street that provides all the basics.

The house itself had all the equipment we could wish for, was very clean and could be cooled down by air conditioning really fast, which came in handy considering the 35+ degrees during summer time.

Pano and Elena had been perfect hosts, very friendly and always at hand when we had questions, they even surprised us with fresh watermelon, ice cream and a minibar, which came for free.

Villa Lena has been a perfect place for us to relax this summer and we would be happy to come back.

Live can be so easy and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Without to many words we will say: if you come to the house of Panos and Lena forget everything what was before, just enjoy live.

Its looks easy and its not, because it cost hard work for Panos and Lena to keep the high level of her house and garden. They are just fantastic and you can feel it when you come to the house.

We had our nicest holidays there and we are traveling a lot - so I will not say more.......just all the best to Panos and Lena !

Peloponnese (south edge of mainland Greece) displays a large number of historical sights, a rich partition of coasts, a hinterland with beautiful nature, villages with remarkable architecture, developed cities and a high touristic infrastructure. It boasts the largest and most spectacular concentration of ancient sites, including Mycenae, Epidavros and Olympia, where the Olympic games were founded. Equally fascinating are the many Byzantine (medieval) cities, churches and fortresses, including the hill town of Mystras and the sea-rock of Monemvasia. The rugged Mani peninsula, central of the three ‘fingers’, positively bristles with towers and frescoed chapels. Day trips can easily be arranged to historical sites (Olympia, Mystras & Monemvasia). You can also explore (by boat) the famous Diros caves. Kalamata (7 km) is a lively, typical Mediterranean city. The old town is picturesque with cafes, restaurants and shops selling local products. Walking on the sea front (2.5 km) is a pleasure.
