Guestbook comments from the owner

It couldn't have been more perfect for us. The pool was obviously stunning, the house was fantastic with everything we needed and all the outside areas were just perfect for various times of the day. Our two young children thought they were in heaven when they arrived to more toys than they had at their own house. They couldn't have been happier. We had so much fun having BBQs and sitting around outside that we didn't even go near the hundreds of books and DVDs you own!

When my sister and her son arrived, having spent the night on the overnight boat from Italy, all they could do was walk around the house saying 'wow'. And that really summed it up for all of us. - Barnes family

We had a fantastic stay at Villa Kitrini and all enjoyed it immensely. The villa offered more than we could have hoped for, as well as the surrounding area. You have provided excellent service, both before we arrived and during the stay.Thank you! - Knight family

Amazing... fantastic... need I say more?

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August 2015 and it is a holiday we will never forget.

The house, swimming pool and grounds are gorgeous - something you get a glimpse of in the photos but need to visit to be able to really appreciate. Everything you could possibly ask for to make a holiday truly special is here, whether as a family or group of friends (or both). If it weren't for the fact that we needed to do grocery shopping, we would never have left the villa!

Patrick was the perfect host - waiting for us when we arrived to explain things (for example how to get fresh eggs from the chickens every morning!) and otherwise left us to our own devices.

We can''t recommend this place enough.

A True Home Away From Home, Superb Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a superb one week stay at the "Yellow House" which is located just outside of Kyparissia on a hillside overlooking the Ionian Sea in early July, 2016. From our initial email contact in the planning process through to greeting us on our arrival and seeing us off on our day of departure, the owner Patrick and his family were friendly, helpful, and responsive to our questions and needs. The house is located just a few minutes drive from nearby Kyparissia, which has several large supermarkets, a delightful bakery, and a conveniently located pharmacy. There are restaurants and tavernas located nearby as well; we enjoyed those in the "old city" section of Kyparissia. There are many outdoor attractions and activities within a one hour drive, these are detailed in an informative binder which Patrick has put together. The house itself is truly a home away from home, with every amenity one could think of to make a memorable stay. From the fully equipped kitchen to the various indoor and outdoor dining spaces, the eclectic art, music, movie and book collections, and to the comfortably appointed bedrooms and modern bath facilities, we felt as if we were not staying in a vacation villa or holiday house, but a real home. Sunsets are magical over the Ionian Sea, and the olive groves which surround the house and in the nearby hillsides and mountains with the buzzing cicadas create the perfect ambience in which to open and enjoy a bottle of the local wine with bread dipped in the family's delicious olive oil. The game room with its ping pong table, dart board, and beverage fridge are a bonus, and the swimming pool is clean, well maintained, with warm water. If you a farmer at heart, there are even chickens to take care of. The photos on the website do not do Villa Kitrini justice, and I would highly recommend this house to those who are seeking to stay in a part of Greece which is scenic but off the beaten path, yet close to the beaches, mountains, waterfalls, and villages which make the Peloponnese unique.

What a fabulous home you have and how lucky we were to stay in it. We all had such an amazing time with everything there that we needed and more. Beautiful views all around and the lovely pool and great BBQ nights. Very very quite in such a beautiful setting with lovely beaches just a short drive away.

We enjoyed feeding your chickens and having fresh eggs and it was an added unexpected bonus to have pool and beach towels provided.

We visited lots of interesting places, including the waterfalls, Olympia, Methoni and Plylos and there are still plenty more to see in the area.

Everywhere we ate including the 2 villages near you served excellent home cooked food and were so cheap! We were really spoilt.

Can't wait to return.

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa, the best we have stayed in. Very spacious, extremely well equipped. Amazing pool surrounded by very well maintained gardens and olive trees. The villa is in a secluded and quiet location, no other properties nearby, looking down towards the sea giving fantastic views (apart from 1 pylon!). As the villa was so comfortable we spent a lot of time there but also explored beaches and tavernas in the surrounding area. Would love to return.

Anne, Charles & Josie

PS helping ourselves to the grapes, vegetables and herbs from the garden, as well as looking after the chickens and collecting the eggs was a delight, only sorry we didn't meet the tortoise.

Spacious villa in a wonderful peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed as a family of 6 in July 2015 and had an absolutely wonderful time. The villa was everything we hoped for from the pictures on the website - you approach through a typical Greek hillside hamlet and down a track and then arrive in the beautiful grounds of Villa Kitrini. The villa was very spacious and extremely well equipped with everything you could need. Pool lovely and stayed very clean, aircon worked very well when we had overheated outside! The owner's son was on hand to answer any questions and was always very helpful - and we had fresh eggs every day from the resident chickens. Well located for exploring the area - we ventured north to Ancient Olympia (wonderful) and south to numerous beaches including of course the famous Voidokilia Beach. Enjoyed a boat trip from Marathopolis to Proti Island for amazing snorkelling and had several suppers on the waterfront there in the excellent restaurants. Would thoroughly recommend the area for an authentic Greek experience within 3 hours drive of Athens and Villa Kitrini was just perfect.

Stunning family home in a real gem of an area

  • 5 of 5

This is one of those reviews that I don't really want to write as I want to keep this place all to myself! The villa is truly stunning. Perfect for the family and the best CD collection I have possibly ever seen.

Patrick and the rest of the family are perfect hosts, always contactable when you need help and advice.

As for location - the views of the sea and mountains are beautiful and you are truly spoilt for choice for world class beaches and places to eat.

I was amazed how quiet the beaches were for the peak of summer. This part of Greece is that perfect balance of tourist friendly, but by no means whatsoever over developed. I can't wait to go back again.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Kalamata at 45150 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Stassio and Armeni at 5 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Patras at 150 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Costa Navarino at 50 Kilometres Nearest Train : Tripoli at 90 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Meligalas at 35 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Stasio at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Kalavryta at 180 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Kyparissia at 60 Kilometres Car: necessary


From Kyparissia, the sandy beach extends approximately 60 kilometres around the gulf of Kyparissiakos to the town of Pyrgos. This unspoilt coastline has numerous access points to the sea with various tavernas providing beachfront refreshments.

The area is not commercialized and has not been overdeveloped. Most beaches are serviced by one or two small traditional tavernas and little else.


Kyparissia is just over 3 hours drive from Athens airport and 1 hour from Kalamata airport. Many European airlines fly into Athens with Kalamata mainly servicing charter flights. Flight operators include Easyjet, British airways, Monarch and Olympic airways. Book early for the best prices. If arriving in Greece by ferry from Italy, the port of Patras is a 2 hour drive away. Whist there are excellent bus connections from all of these cities, your own car is essential whist staying at the villa.


Villa Kitrini is located on the outskirts of the village of Stasio, offering a taverna/kafeneon. The village of Armeni is also within walking distance and has a greater choice of tavernas, cafes and a shop selling basic provisions.

The area is rich in rustic charm and is a haven for those interested in nature and walking. The mountain range behind the house is easily accessible on foot and has a network of cart tracks, paths and goat tracks taking you to secluded churches and panoramic views.

Further Details:

The site of Ancient Olympia (the birthplace of the Olympic games) is less than an hour’s drive away as are many other ancient sites and monuments. Other major sites including Mystra, Mycenie, Epidavros, Ancient Corinth, Nafplio, Monemvasia, Lousios Gorge and Vouraikos gorge are all a day trip away.

The main town of Kyparissia is 4 kilometres away and provides all the amenities of a modern Greek town including bars, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and clubs. The town is located around a large traditional main platea (square) overlooked by the old town and the rambling Byzantine-Frankish Kyparissia castle. The castle has free entry and provides panoramic views over the town and the large gulf of Kyparissiakos. The town also benefits from its own large sandy beach with a handful of bars, restaurants and clubs.
