About the property

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

A beautiful stone built villa, just 6 mins drive (2.5 km) from the picturesque seaside village of Kalo Nero ("Good Water" in Greek) and 60km of wide sandy beaches of Kyparissia Bay, a protected NATURA area and nesting ground of the' Loggerhead Sea Turtle. This unique 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. All round patios and relaxing seating. Private pool 7m diameter, 1.35m deep with children's slide. Tranquil, spacious and fully equipped for several couples or families, the villa is designed to reflect the best of traditional stone work and an open plan contemporary interior. Greek Tourist Authority Licenced. Wi fi satellite internet. Table Tennis table. Large children's games room. Stone built Wood Fired Oven and large BBQ. Fenced chickens with fresh eggs available to guests.

The nearby seafront village of Kalo Nero has both organised and secluded natural areas, including sea turtle nests and several small local sea-front tavernas serving authentic Greek food and fresh fish. There are mini markets, a bakery, a fantastic grocers and butchers with local produce and children's playground. Right on the sea front is a swimming pool bar inc a large 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. Plans are afoot by the Greek Government to declare the Bay a national park to conserve its natural beauty and protect the 11 endangered species of reptiles and flora found there.

Situated close to Ancient Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic games, Ancient Messini, Pilos town and Navarino Bay, Voidokilia Beach, Gialova Lagoon and numerous ancient sites, it is the prefect place to experience authentic Greek nature and culture. 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 ancient sites of Messini, Ithoni and Nestors Palace all under 1 hours drive away as are the beautiful waterfalls of Polylimnio (many lakes). The villa is a great spot for exploration and there are maps and guidebooks provided. The Greek Sea Turtle Society (Archelon) Information Kiosk is located nearby in Kalo Nero and their Exhibition Centre is 10 mins drive at Aggianakis.

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 my partner, Kostas is Greek. Kostas's mother is from Siderokastro, a village in the mountains nearby and we were touring the area many years ago when we happened to stumble through a pine forest on to the longest beach we had ever seen in Greece! On leaving, we bumped into the volunteers of Archelon and learnt that Kyparissia Bay is the largest nesting ground of the Loggerhead Turtle in the Mediterranean. I then spent all my summers in a tent volunteering until the house was built!!! The villa was designed by us and built in 2006 whilst we were expecting our daughter. We are bilingual, very knowledgeable about the local area and more than happy to help whenever we can.

Judy Jagmohan purchased this villa in 2006

Why Judy Jagmohan chose Messinia

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.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the beginning of October. Two families with kids. The House is even better than on the photos, and the hosts were very friendly, kind and service minded. Beautiful sunset view and a very tranquil environment, with olive trenes and nice paths for running. At night some of the dogs in the area were barking, and they kept some in our party a bit sleepless at night. But again, what is better than sleeping it out at beautiful beaches the day after, and we could enjoy them all almost by ourselves! Thanks for a great stay, would love to return.

Absolutely Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire stay could not have been any better! The house is beautiful and fully equipped with everything you need and more! Really light, spacious, amazing pizza oven, BBQ, football pitch, pool, table tennis! Kostas and Judy were also both lovely to deal with, really helpful and gave us great tips on what to do, including a boat trip, waterfalls, dinner recommendations, turtle survey etc. Could not recommend it anymore! Thank you for a brilliant holiday!!

Perfect Villa with stunning view. Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Judy and Kostas for letting us stay in your beautiful home. You were both lovely hosts, very welcoming and friendly and full of top tips on places to visit / taverna's etc, and it was good to know you were only a text away should we have needed anything.

We had a fantastic holiday, the house had everything we needed from insect nets at the windows, fans in the bedrooms to a beautiful garden and pool and of course a lovely view of the sea and mountains. Everything was clean and well maintained and we all enjoyed pancakes for breakfast made with freshly laid eggs from the chickens , and homemade pizza coked in the wood oven.

We had several days out during our stay all within easy reach from the villa. South of the villa, just over an hours drive we visited Voidokillia beach, Gialova , Navarino Bay where we hired a boat for the day and saw the monuments around the bay and did some snorkelling.

North of the villa we visited the archeological site of Olympia then had lunch at the Bacchus restaurant ( to avoid the touristy olympia village ) good lunch and lovely views of the countryside ( about 5-10 minutes drive outside the olympic village on the main road east of olympia , in a place called Ancient Pissa). We then drove the Apollo Temple, which was slightly disappointing as it was covered in a large tent during restoration work, but the drive there was beautiful as long as you can cope with hair-pin bends on the mountain roads.

We also visit the site of ancient Messene, we went early to avoid the heat and then had delicious lunch in the family run taverna, Ithomi in village of Mavromati , which has good views of the ruins.

Shorter trips near the villa included some Tombs and a restored watermill, which does an excellent chocolate cake.

We were also lucky enough during our stay to see baby loggerhead turtles hatching at Kalo Nero beach. We spent about 30 minutes with the turtle protection group from about 10.30pm. Very informative and interesting , would loved to have spent longer and done the whole night survey but unfortunately we weren't allowed as they have had lots problems with people destroying nests etc. I hope to come back and volunteer properly one day.

We still had plenty of time to chill out at the villa and enjoy the pool and the beautiful sunsets. Kids were aged 14 and 16 and both had a really good holiday. We would definitely recommend staying here. Thank you once again. Tracy, Tim, Lily & Jack

Absolutely wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

This villa had everything, well planned and well equipped wonderful views and good location. It is perfect for a family or group holiday. It is near the beach and it is also possible to visit ancient sites like Olympia. The owners were nearby in case there were any problems (which there weren't) and were helpful with tips of where to visit. I would recommend the villa to anyone.

A fantastic break at this villa for a week in late May 2016

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks break at this villa and have had a fantastic time

The villa is very well equipped and in great condition

Judy and Kostas are excellent hosts

The views from the villa, terrace and pool are perfect and the BBQ was well used during our stay

Plenty of outdoor space for children to run around and explore securely and my daughter loved collecting the chicken eggs each day

I would thoroughly recommend a stay at this villa, with such a large property and grounds it would easily host a large group!

Great family home turned into perfect holiday home. Beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were incredibly helpful without being intrusive. Wonderful indoor and outdoor living spaces. Very private, beautiful rural spot yet 4 minutes in car from shops, fabulous beach etc. A very good location for exploring the Peloponnese. Could not recommend it more.
