About Kiki Apostolidis

I am Kiki and I was born in Koroni, I spent all my childhood years in this area. As a child I used to study and look at the beautiful blue sea as a way to travel around the world. After graduating from high school I went to the USA at Temple University in Philadelphia to get an education. It was also the place where I met my husband. In the 2000 my husband and my children decided to built this log house to bond them together. A lot of personal work and care has been taken to every part of the house. From the hand made roof, floor, house walls to the hand made sofa and chairs. Almost everything is custom made and with a lot of love. We always appreciate having guests over at our home. Greek hospitality is not just a saying where I come from, its an action of heart.

Kiki Apostolidis purchased this villa in 1949

Why Kiki Apostolidis chose Pilos Nestor

The land has been given from my father as my wedding gift. It used to be a land of agriculture. A place where I spent a lot of my childhood years. The sea is right next to the property. Just sitting on the balcony and watching at the sea is enough to re-energize my being.

What makes this villa unique

The house is surrounded by a lovely garden that is constantly been taken care by my husband. A variety of trees and plants are placed around the land. The beach is right at the end of the property. Just a few steps away and you can feel the sand between your feet. Whether its winter or summer, a walk on the beach can clean up the mind clutter and open new possibilities. The sea is amazingly clean and a swim will revitalize you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is an amazing house! Angeliki is a very kind, helpful and nice host! We stayed in the house for one week and enjoyed it to the fullest. The house is very beautiful and cozy, with the nice and unique firniture. Big kitchen with all the necessary things like dishwashing machine. The house is right on the seaside! The view from the balcony is amazing! There is an air condition in the living room, but we did not use it al all, it was cool enough because of the breeze from the sea. The place and the house is a real paradise! We recommend everyone to go there for holidays! We will go there again for sure!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at Villa Thalassina and enjoyed every single minute there. Great place, nice and well equipped house and friendly hosts. What more can you ask for? We will definitely be back next year. Thank you so much Kiki for the chance to stay in your house!

Amazing house on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 10-day stay at this amazing property and I am sure we will be daydreaming about it for months... Our hosts Kiki and Vasili were most welcoming and gracious and have made sure that we are well informed about the region and all the local amenities.

It is the only house on the sandy tranquil Memi beach but there is also lots to do and see in the area, should one feel adventurous. The house itself is spacious and very modern yet maintains the traditional beach hut feel with unique furniture pieces hand made by Vasili. It truly became home away from home for us.

The town of Koroni is mere 5 minutes away by car and we had great sea food in restaurants recommended by our hosts. The local supermarket is about 4 minutes away and is good size and is open 7 days p/w.

We are truly grateful to Kiki and Vasili for their hospitality and making us feel welcome in their beautiful home.

We had a great time. The house is spacious and comfortable. The view is breathtaking. What a luxury to walk up the beach through the garden. Kiki and her husband ware very friendly and welcoming. We have received many tips for outings and good food in the arena. Thanks a lot Kiki!

Special interest holidays:

Instruction in woodturning and woodworking is available. We can also provide equipment for archery and practice on our property. For those interesting in hiking and walking, we will provide detail information. I will also give local Greek cooking lessons upon arrangement.


The best beach in the area is Memi beach and the house is directly on the beach. It stretches for two fantastic km. Facing south with white sand and shallow clean water.

There are so many beautiful beaches in the area, & we have plenty of leaflets & guidebooks to help you choose a different one each day. The turtle Carretta –caretta fetches the eggs literally in front of the house on the beach.


Flights come into Kalamata on Sundays between May & October; this is just 45 minutes drive away, along the coast road. You may prefer to have the greater flexibility of daily UK flights to Athens, & then drive over the mountains to Koroni, this is a 3.15-hour drive, with stunning views. We will be pleased to help with any car hire, flight or accommodation queries. If you prefer to use public transport we can arrange for you to be met, at the train or bus station, "for a fee plus expenses".


The port of Koroni with bars, cafes seafront restaurants, supermarket, banks, post office and a Venetian castle is 2km. Along the coast to the west is the magnificent castle at Methoni. Pylos and Navarino Bay are worth visiting. The area is full of archaeological sites the best of which is ancient Messini. Ancient Olympia is about 2.30 hours drive away.

The area is ideal for people who like photography, walking, swimming, windsurfing, kayaking, yoga, sailing, horse riding.

Further Details:

Koroni has banks, Post office, pharmacy, supermarkets, bakeries, newsagents, and shops to cater for all your needs. Memi beach is a large sandy beach & has all the facilities you might need for a wide range of water sports, windsurfing, sailing & sea kayaking & several tavernas and cafes. One can be independent without having to use a car.

Within 8 minutes walk from the beach there is a windsurfing school for all ages.

Locally, there are artists, a furniture maker & a wood turner, all of whom are very happy to show you their work

Scuba diving, fishing trips, & boat hire are available at Pylos

The large sandy beaches near Finekounda are ideal for kite flying.
