Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Although this house is fairly new, it conveys through its traditional construction with stone walls and rustic interior plaster, that feeling of living in a real Greek home. It is very simply furnished.
With its two bedrooms and fully equipped kitchen it offers space for up to four people. Bedrooms and kitchen / living area are located on the ground floor & there is a patio area for sitting outside. Up some stairs there is a roof terrace from which one can enjoy lovely views of the sea.
On foot it is about 10 minutes to the nearest sandy beach (Pantazi). Very close to this beach is also a recommended taverna. To the village of Agios Nikolaos, with its shops and taverns along the harbour front, it is about a 20 minute walk.
Parking directly by the house is possible.

The Peloponnese region
The appeal of the Peloponnese (Pelopónnisos) is hard to overstate. This southern peninsula, technically an island since the cutting of the Corinth Canal, seems to have the best of almost everything Greek. Its ancient sites include the Homeric palaces of Agamemnon at Mycenae and of Nestor at Pýlos, the best preserved of all Greek theatres at Epidaurus, and the lush sanctuary of Olympia, host to the Olympic Games for a millennium. The medieval remains are scarcely less rich, with the fabulous Venetian, Frankish and Turkish castles of Náfplio, Methóni and Kórinthos; the strange battle towers and frescoed churches of the Máni; and the extraordinarily well preserved Byzantine shells of Mystra and Monemvasiá.
Beyond this incredible profusion of cultural monuments, the Peloponnese is also a superb place to relax and wander. Its beaches, especially along the west coast, are among the finest and least developed in the country, and the landscape inland is superb – dominated by range after range of forested mountains, and cut by some of the lushest valleys and gorges to be imagined. Not for nothing did its heartland province of Arcadia give its name to the concept of a classical rural idyll.
The Peloponnese is at its most enjoyable and intriguing when you venture off the beaten track: to the old Arcadian hill towns like Karítena, Stemnítsa and Dhimitsána; the Maniot tower villages; beaches such as Elafónissos in the south; or the trip along the remarkable rack-and-pinion railway from the north coast at Dhiakoftó to Kalávryta.
The house is 10 mins walking distance to Pantazi beach, 5 minutes drive to the fishing harbour of Agios Nikolaos. Ag Nic is a lovely unspoiled, traditional Greek fishing village. If you get up early enough in the morning you'll see the fisherman selling their catches on the stone wall by the front, while men drink strong coffees and chat. Some lovely restaurants on the front. Here you will find Katerinas supermarket, bakeries & a few cafes. It is a 10 minutes drive to Stoupa and its beaches with more supermarkets, restaurants. A 1 hour drive to Kalamata.
The region is perfect for walking tours, painting, bird watching, snorkelling and swimming.

"Well appointed house in peaceful location."
Just returned from a wonderful two weeks at William's House.The accommodation is comfortable,well equipped and in a quiet location, but still within walking distance of the beach and the picturesque fishing village of Agios Nikolaos.The roof terrace is ideal with views of the sea,the mountains,sunsets over Ag. Nik. or just to stargaze with a drink at nights.A well equipped kitchen means dining out is not a necessity.
A car is recommended to explore Stoupa,Kardimili, the hidden coves and the mountain villages which offer stunning views of the coast, and a step back in time.Our first time to this part of Greece,but definitely not our last.
So happy you enjoyed your stay.
