Villa in Kyparissia, Peloponnese, Greece - Amongst the olive groves, only 6 minutes drive to the sea

This luxurious villa is set on its own amongst olive groves in a 3000 sq metre landscaped garden including a large lawned area perfect for ball games, with views of the mountains and Ionian Sea.

The nearby seafront village of Kalo Nero has several local sea-front tavernas serving authentic Greek food and fresh fish and bars overlooking the beach. There are mini markets, a bakery, a fantastic grocers and butchers with local produce and children's playground. On the sea front is a swimming pool bar with separate children's pool. The beach extends north for 60 km into Kyparissia Bay, with its wide sandy beaches lined by dunes, coastal pine forest and watermelon fields. The Greek Government plans to declare Kyparissia Bay a national park to conserve its natural beauty and protect the 11 endangered species of reptiles and flora found there. The Loggerhead Sea Turtle nests all along the Bay from May - September and it is one of the main nesting sites in the Mediterranean.

The villa is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty and historical significance.

In the surrounding mountains lie rustic stone villages with authentic tavernas, historic towers, the Neda River Gorge and waterfalls and panoramic views. The intact marble Temple of Apollo at Vassae, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, lies in the mountains 1 hours drive behind the villa.

The Greek Sea Turtle Society (Archelon) have an Information Kiosk in Kalo Nero and an Exhibition Centre 10 mins drive away at Aggianakis. Guests are welcome to join the volunteers on beach surveys during May - September.

The Kyparissia area has all year interest and mild weather. In July and August village fiestas are held with much feasting and Greek dancing. Late autumn sees the start of the olive harvest and the annual bird migrations South. January is perfect for skiing and snowboarding at the Mainalo Ski Resort (1.30 hours drive) as well as walks along deserted beaches. Spring brings meadows of wild flowers, Easter celebrations and the return of the nesting sea turtles.

About Judy Jagmohan

I am from the UK and Kostas is Greek. The house was designed and built by us. We live in the area and are available for advice, translating and arranging trips.

Judy Jagmohan purchased this villa in 2006

Why Judy Jagmohan chose Trifillia

The stone used to construct the villa was brought from the southern greek region of the Mani and constructed in a traditional style by local stonemasons. The stone was sourced from a 100 year old Mani house and many contain fossils and crystals.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is nestled amongst olive groves with views of the Ionian sea and the mountains of Kyparissia. Tranquil and relaxing with perfect sunset views and enveloped in a sea of greenery.

Peaceful and well appointed hill top,rural villa

  • 4 of 5

Very homely but also stylish and light and modern. A great space. Everything was in very good order and well appointed including playroom and cat both kept our 8yr old truly happy.

There are a few dogs around who bark at nighr,but ear plus sorted that out!

We visited the Temple of Apollo and Neda...well worth the visit,although along and windy drive but must be done.

Local,beaches are lovely and wild...the beach to the left of Kalo Nero in the cove we found to be the best. Good eating out by the castle st Kyparissia too.

A lovely natural area and good home to base yourself from. Judy the owner ver helpful and friiendly.

Wonderful location, superb villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is very spacious, well equipped and ideal for a large family gathering of varying ages such as ours.

The panoramic views are stunning with mountains, the sea in the distance and lovely open countryside.

Listening to the jackals, toads, owls and star gazing in the evening was wonderful!

The villa is ideally placed for visiting the local Kalo Nero tavernas and beach although we preferred Elea beach with a delightful taverna, 10/15 minutes to the north.

Visited the waterfalls at Neda - the drive down is not for the faint hearted though or the walk so be warned! The drive through the Neda Valley was lovely though so definitely worth it.

Well placed for visiting other places such as Gialova, Pylos and the coast on the east side such as Petalides, Kalamaki and Chrani, although these are further afield of course.

Judy was a brilliant host, very helpful and there if needed!

Beaches and Archeological sites:

A 6 minute drive from the villa leads to the Bay of Kyparissia with wide sandy beaches stretching for 60 km lined by sand dunes, coastal pine forest and watermelon fields. A designated NATURA protected habitat, the beaches are mainly undeveloped and prefect for sun and nature lovers. The Greek Sea Turtle Society (Archelon) protects the nests of the Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta Caret), an endangered species, along 14 km of stunning coastline just north of the villa.

The beaches of Kalo Nero and to the south, Sani Paradise Beach and Kyparissia Beach have tourist facilities, whereas the northern beaches of Vounaki, Aggiannaki, Elaia, Giannitsohori and Tholo are completely unspoilt. These beaches are wide and sandy, just how the turtles like them! South of Kyparissia, towards Agrili, Gianitsana Stormio and Laguvados, the scenery changes and there are coves and good snorkelling.

A little further, at Marathopoli there are lovely seafront restaurants with fresh seafood and boat trips can be made to and around the small island of Proti opposite which is great for snorkelling.

Further still, about 30 minutes drive is the famous horseshoe shaped beach of Voidokilia and the Gialova Lagoon nature reserve. An atmospheric ruined castle on top of a cliff, Paleokastro, can be reached by a path leading to the top and if you are reasonably fit, its possible to trek down the other side past Nestors Cave, to the beach. Walk around the lagoon in the early morning or sunset and you may see flamingos (yes its true!), egrets, herons and kingfishers. The African Chameleon also nests there.

A detour to the archeological site of Nestors Palace is well worth it here.

The small but beautiful seaside village of Gialova is also a great option for eating out as it has a wonderful selection of both authentic Greek and international food as well as interesting shops.

The next stop is the historical port town of Pilos where the famous Battle of Naverino Bay took place. A stunning and well preserved town where boat trips can be taken around the huge bay. A large variety of water sports are also available here as well as sailing boat hire. Just 11 kms away is the vast castle complex at Methoni, well preserved and dating from many different historical periods, the tip of the castle juts out into the sea!


The villa is 40 mins drive from Kalamata airport with UK flights via Easyjet, Ryan Air, Thomas Cook and Aegean Airlines. Pick up taxis can be arranged. Car hire is essential for exploring the area and there are several local providers. KTEL buses operate local and national services. Athens is 3 hours drive. Patras port with connections to Italy is 2 hours. The port of Kilini with ferries to Zakynthos and Kefallonia is 1.5 hours drive. Kalamata port ferries operate to Kythira, Crete and Athens.


The villa is 2.5 km from Kalo Nero village and 7.5 km from Kyparissia. The ancient tombs of Peristeria are 3 km. Ancient Olympia is 55 km, Ancient Messini 40 km. The historical town of Pylos, Navarino Bay, Gialova Lagoon (NATURA site and home to the rare African Chameleon as well as flamingos, egrets and herons) and Voidokilia Beach (a stunning horseshoe bay) are all under an hours drive south. Methoni Castle and Nestors Palace (1 hour). The River Neda Gorge waterfalls and Polylimnio (1 hour).

Further Details:

The nearby pretty seaside village of Kalo Nero is located on a 2 km beach, with both organised and secluded natural areas including sea turtle nests. The beach extends to the north for 60 km and forms part of the Bay of Kyparissia. A swimming pool bar, including kids pool, is situated on the sea front, as well as several authentic waterfront tavernas with live traditional Greek music, fresh fish and local dishes, mini markets and shops with local Greek produce. It has a relaxed and intimate atmosphere as the area has not yet been fully developed and can be explored on foot. The market town of Kyparissia with its port and all modern facilities including banks, supermarkets, bars, nightclubs and restaurants is 15 minute drive. A walk through the historical upper town leads to the ruins of a Frankish castle and amphitheatre with stunning views of the bay.
