Villa Olivia-apartment Daphne
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Villa Olivia is situated on a hill with olive grooves with spectacular views on the clear blue waters of the bay of Finikounda, the little islands in front and the Tayegetos mountains. The breeze coming from the sea makes it, even in summer, agreeable to sit among the olive trees in the garden.The nearest beach ( Mavrovoumi) can be reached by foot in 20 minutes and in 5 minutes by car.
The nearest village is Finikunda (2,5 km) scattered with small, often authentic taverna's and restaurants, right at the shore.
You can visit the premonitory in Methoni, a crumbled castle overlooking the expansive seas or you can visit the ancient site in Pylos, previously a monastery, now a well-kept open-air museum.
The 40 km of coast between Roumanou and Koroni, through Voidikilia, Pylos and Methoni are, let me tell you, ....... breathtaking!. It is the last region in Europe that isn't yet spoiled by mass-tourism. Lovers of sailing, surfing and diving come here from everywhere to enjoy their passions.
The house was built in 2005 and it has 2 apartments on the ground floor and one on the first floor, each with a covered terrace and the same beautiful view.
Apartment Daphne consists of a living room with an open kitchen, a dining table and chairs and a sofa bed; one half open bedroom with 2 single beds, a second separate bedroom with 2 single beds, a big bathroom with a shower, a toilet and a sink. The apartment is accessible for wheelchairs since it has no thresholds, wide doors (1 m), a shower-seat and an adapted toilet seat.

The Peloponnese region
Finikounda is located in the south-west Peloponnese. A lush area filled with olive and fruit trees with beautiful sandy beaches, azure blue waters, an array of local tavernas and cafes. It makes a wonderful base for either exploration or simple relaxation.
The nearest major village, or town if you wish, is Pylos, a centre with platia and shops and streets and steps (very steep!) leading around. Worth visiting is the ancient castle of Pylos, the bay of Voidikilia (cow’s stomach) at 10 km from Pylos via Gialova. It is a stunning little bay where you find yourself in paradise and next to it is Golden beach, the lagoon and wetlands bird watching nature reserve(20min).
The ride from Pylos to Methoni, about 15 km. leads through olive-groves, the main industry just to provide the locals with a living.
Although smaller than Pylos Methoni has just as much to offer: platia with a view to the beach, and Methoni Castle is a must-have-seen!
The Costa Navarino Golf Resort, Nestor's Palace, Ancient Messini, Kalamata, Olympia, Mystras (near Sparta) and the Mani peninsula are all within reach for daily excursions.
From there you may wish to come back to our hamlet and find rest, peacefulness and silence as much as you like!
The area of Finikounda is still unspoilt by commerciality and tourism, the beaches are safe for young children and the waters are crystal clear.
The 40 km of coast between Roumanou and Koroni, through Voidikilia, Pylos and Methoni, let me tell you, is breathtaking!. It is the last region in Europe that isn't yet spoiled by mass-tourism. Lovers of sailing, surfing and diving come here from everywhere to enjoy their passions.
Or, biking,horse riding, take a walk down country tracks, through olive groves or along long stretches of sandy beaches.
Voidikilia is a protected nature site (Natura 2000) with the Yialova Lagoon and its fantastic bird life, chameleons, sea turtles, ancient castle and stunning cove of Nestor!
Costa Navarino is located at Romanos (25min), a luxury 5-star high-end complex of hotels, residences, restaurants, spas, recreation facilities and shops featuring two brand new signature 18 hole golf courses which are crafted across natural terrain to reflect the rugged outlines of the distant mountains with several holes that play directly along the sea

""very relaxing and calm holiday with a beautiful view from the balcony""
I would definitely recomend it. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and always willing to talk. If we were to visit Peloponese again we would stay in that place for sure. The town Finikounda, very little and quiet place. Nearby beaches especially in Zapi stunning, sandy with quite shallow water.

"An ideal haven"
We live in this property almost every year for last 4 years.That is why I can say with confidence that it's the best place for vacation for me and my family. Apartment are fully equipped with all that a family with 2 small kids might need during 1 month vacation. All beaches that are in walking or car distance are very different and perfect and you'll' never get bored of discovering all of them. Greece is the best place in world, Peloponnese is the best place in Greece and Kotsireika/Finikounda is the best place in Peloponnese...
