The Peloponnese is a rugged area with many mountains and unspoiled beaches Many tourist attractions such as Ancient Olympia,Corinthian canal, Ancient Messini, Epidavros, Monemvasia and Sparta, hot springs and spa of Kaifes as well as day trips to the islands of Kefalonia and Zante to name but a few. For golf lovers Costa Navarino Golf resort is about 40 minutes drive away.

The local area is ideal for walking and trekking with many tracks and paths leading to small chapels and churches..a step back in time.

The small town of Kyparissia is about 4km away and has all the amenities you will need for your stay. Tavernas, bars, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, chemists, butchers and many bakeries. There are the ruins of a Byzantine-Frankish castle in the upper/old part of town. The castle is free entry and has the most beautiful views of of the whole bay and town.

The stretch of coast between Kyparissia and Pyrgos has been untouched by tourism and has some of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches in the Peloponnese, including a 60 km stretch running from Kyparissia., on many of these beaches we have loggerhead turtles come ashore to lay their eggs and they can be seen swimming off the coast.

Kyparissia is about 3 hours drive from Athens airport, 1 hour from Kalamata airport and 2 hours from Patras (Araxos) airport. Many european airlines operate including Easyjet, British airways, Ryanair, Monarch and Olympic airways. Hire cars can be collected at the airports. If arriving by ferry from Italy the port of Patras is 2 hours.

“Perfect accommodation”

5 of 5 starsReviewed June 28, 2015 NEW

I have just come back from a week at the Cabin and it was excellent. Bernadette and Rod were wonderful, generous hosts (a bowl of chilled figs, a highlight for me) and they had thought of everything we could need. Watching swallows, martins and bats swooping around the pool with the backdrop of fabulous sunsets was really memorable

I would definitely recommend the Cabin.

Like Mary Poppins - Practically perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to have found The Cabin, which we stayed in for 2 weeks in September 2016. It was absolutely perfect in every way, stunning location and you would be hard pushed to find a better holiday home. Absolutely everything has been thought about, kitchen cupboards well stocked too.

The owners, Rod & Bernadette are also the most perfect hosts and are always there should you need them and because we arrived on a Sunday when shops are shut, they bought enough provisions in for us to eat and drink in the evening - that's the level of thoughtfulness that comes with them.

The location is perfect for a rural retreat but is also just 5 minutes away from the nearest town. There are some gorgeous sandy beaches all around which are quiet so you have plenty of space around you.

This is a great location for seeing the real Greece rather than just being in a tourist trap - lots of history around ie: Olympia & ancient monuments to visit, waterfalls and drive up in the mountains to a stunning Port to the South (Pylos) and wonderful secluded beaches and villages you find on your travels.

Thank you so much Rod & Bernadette for a wonderful holiday.

Owner's Response: Wow, what a lovely review. We are of course delighted that you had such a good holiday, it's a great time of year as it's not so hot and it's much quieter. We are getting ready for the 'second spring' which we always get at this time of year after the first rains, all the beautiful spring flowers re-appear, it's lovely. We would welcome you back anytime.

Fantastic value for money in wonderful accommodati

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodation in very peaceful surroundings. The owners seemed to think of everything we might need. Beaches great...and empty at this time of year. Easy to find, but secluded and felt like we were in our own little paradise. Only problem ...was we only had a few days, so will be booking to come back again before the season finishes.

Amazing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was an ideal base for our holiday (family of 4 - children aged 10 & 12). The property was incredibly well equipped and the welcome grocery supplies were more than we've had anywhere else (including homemade olive oil!) - and very welcome.

Bernadette and Rod couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful and happy to answer questions about places to go/directions/recommendations.

The area is a low key, rural part of Greece and not over run with tourists which was great - plenty of space on the beaches.

Highlights of our holiday were spending lots of time in the pool, watching the sunset at Agrili, walking up the mountain behind the house (an early morning start to miss the heat but well worth it), Polilimnus waterfalls, the Tholos tombs and ancient Messini. We would definitely come back to this part of Greece, and would stay at the Cabin again.

Owner's Response: We look forward to your return, hopefully we will have completed some winter maintenance and improvements by the time you come back. Remember that although summer is great, the autumn and spring are pretty wonderful too., so bear in mind the half term and easter breaks. It was a pleasure having such a lovely family staying in 'The Cabin' and thank you for such a lovely review.

Peaceful house

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with 3 kids and we spent few days in this wonderful and peaceful house. The Cabin is spacious, clean and well-maintained, perfect for a relaxing holiday. The house is within 1 hour drive from many beautiful beaches and historical sites. Rod and Bernadette are extremely friendly and helpful. We loved our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone!

'escape and unwind'

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the cabin for nearly two weeks, its set in a beautifully green area of the Peloponnese, peaceful and the perfect place to unwind. You can be sure of a warm welcome and accommodation that is 1st class. The cabin has everything you could possibly need and is very comfortable, impeccable clean and tidy.

Endless ancient sites, many of them famous such as Ancient Olympia.

Exploring the coast and the mountain villages to discover many traditional Greek taverna's and restaurants.

Although there are numerous bars and typical Greek eating/drinking establishments, it is not an area for nightclubbing etc, but will suit those wishing to get away from the stress of busy lifestyles to re-charge your batteries.

We try to be as 'eco friendly' as possible, using outside solar lights, even our watering system for the gardens are mainly run from a natuarlly filled pond and pumped by solar. Water heated by solar (backed up by electricty for the odd sunless days in winter) for showers etc. Electricty produced by our own PV solar panels, which provides the log cabin and our small bungalow.
