  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this cottage. Well equipped and hidden away, so peaceful. You will need a car, but everything you need is a short drive away. Organisation was easy with Gill who is so easy to deal with.

The cottage is delightful and well equipped. If you are looking for tranquility and charm, this is the place for you. Thank you Gill.

Lovely, quiet village get-away.

  • 5 of 5

Zoe Cottage is in a very quiet village about 10 minutes drive up from the coastal road at Chrani, so as the description says, you need a car. It is incredibly quiet there and very picturesque.

The cottage itself is very tastefully furnished and has everything you need. We did need the mosquito net and plenty of repellent! It was extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. I loved making use of the hammock on the patio every afternoon.

There are lots of tavernas in Chrani and two supermarkets. If you like the beach there are several areas to choose from along the coast road and if you like antiquities you are spoilt for choice. There are lovely ports with castles such as Koroni and Methoni; Messini and Nestor's Palace (archaeological sites) are within fairly easy driving distance. There is a lovely nature reserve not too far away where we saw flamingos and birds of prey. The whole area was delightful, with olive groves on green grass everywhere.

I would highly recommend the property and the area.

Lovely, slightly quirky, very peaceful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We really wanted to get away from it all and chill out on holiday this year and we weren't disappointed.

Gill was a pleasure to deal with and booking was a smooth and easy process. Directions were excellent and everything was ready for us.

The village is quite remote and very quiet and the cottage is at the end of dead-end lane, so no passing traffic noise. There's a sheltered terrace in front with comfortable furniture.

The internal layout is quite unusual and is mainly open-plan. The double bed is in an alcove off the living area and there's a separate, small twin-bedded room. They beds are quite comfortable and plenty of bedding and pillows are available. The bathroom (with a good water heater) is also off the living area. The weather was still quite warm and the air-conditioning was welcome at night.

The accommodation is compact and basic, but that's not a criticism. Everything was clean and in good working order and met all of our needs perfectly. Had there been any problem the very helpful, english-speaking Stephan was on hand to help.

We had an extremely relaxing, stress-free holiday and have no complaints at all about Zoe Cottage. We've rented many self-catering cottages and this was one of the nicest and certainly the best value for money by a long way.

Highly recommended!

away from it all, but comfortable. Great if you want some rest in a beautiful surrounding

  • 4 of 5

We loved to stay in the cottage. Nice and quiet. Up the hill, so you need your car to drive to the village on the coast for swimming and shopping. Its nicely located alas without a good view of the bay. Property is not big but has all you need , is clean reasonably well maintained. If you don't mind that you have to drive to the villagers is perfect place to stay, relax on the porch and drink some wine.

The are plenty of things to do in the surrounding areas. You can even rent a boat in the nearby port of Agios Konstantinos for a day sailing.

Entspannung pur

  • 5 of 5

Gill, die Vermieterin war gut über Email zu erreichen und hat uns hilfreiche Hinweise und Tipps gegeben. Der Zustand des Hauses ist sehr gut und es ist individuell und liebevoll eingerichtet. Ausgezeichnete Betten. Das kleine Landhaus ist gepflegt und sauber. Die Lage ist ruhig und die Nachbar, Griechen und Deutsche, sind freundlich. Allerdings sieht man diese selten. Einzig störend war bei unserem Aufenthalt, dass aufgrund der großen Hitze mehrfach die Wasserversorgung ausgefallen ist. Das hat aber nichts mit dem Haus zu tun, sondern kommt im Hochsommer häufiger in dieser Gegend vor. Hier hat uns ein Hinweis in der Hausbeschreibung gefehlt. Zum Strand sind es mit dem Auto etwa 10 Minuten. Ebenso zum Küstenort Chrani. Der Ort selber ist eher eine Durchgangsstraße mit 2 kleinen Supermärkten und mehreren kleinen Tavernen. Sehr zu empfehlen die Taverne Sokrates. Wir haben unseren 13 tägigen Aufenthalt in "Zoe Cottage" sehr genossen. Es ist ein wirklich schöner und ruhiger Platz um sich zu entspannen und dem Stress des Alltages zu entkommen.
