“The Iconpainter's Apartments” are in a sleepy quarter of the picturesque village of Koroni. From The Iconpainter's Apartments, everything is within walking distance. The apartments have been sympathetically created from an original Venetian style villa. The house is traditional whitewash with blue shutters. It has a tranquil courtyard where guests can relax and listen to the gentle sound of the fountain trickling into a pool.
There are four one bedroom apartments, all of which are stylish in their furnishings and fully equipped for your every need. There is a double bed with "coc0mat" natural sleeping system mattress, fully equipped kitchen, shower room, indoor and outside seating/dining space. All apartments have air conditioning and wifi internet access.
The upper studios have a balcony to the rear where our guests can sunbathe or dine and a little balcony to the front with wonderful views over the harbour to the mountains beyond. The décor is clean and bright. Blues and whites are prevalent and there are lovely tiled floors.
The studios on the courtyard below are very similar. They do not have a front balcony but have the benefit of a space in the charming courtyard in which to sit by the fountain, dine or just relax.
All of the studios have air conditioning and there are shared laundry facilities. A solar panel and immersion heater provide hot water all year round. One upper apartment has a wood burning stove for winter visitors.
Five minutes stroll takes you to either the magnificent Zaga Beach or to the vibrant village waterfront where there are many tavernas and interesting shops. There is parking 50 meters from the apartments.
Koroni is said to be “one of the the most picturesques villiages in Greece”. It lives up to its reputation in every way. The village is “crowned” by the castle and monastery that both sit together above the village giving it the most beautiful silhouette. It is a wonderful bustling village full of life all year round. Many visitors come in summer but this village has life in every month and season. In Koroni, like the other little villages nearby, you will be welcomed warmly by the local people. You will eat in tavernas where the seafood cooked for you will have been caught that very day. You will be able to choose relaxing on many beautiful and unspoilt beaches such as Zaga, Peroulia, Kombi, Kalamaki and Tsapi to name a few! Remember, Zaga beach is home to the Logga turtle because it is so clean and peaceful. When you want a change from the beach, select from a whole host of attractions. Historical sites, Ancient and Byzantine are found at Messini, Methoni, Koroni, Pylos, Mystras and many more.
The Iconpainter's Apartments are special. There is no better place to stay if a holiday within a real Greek village is your idea of a perfect Greek holiday.

The Messenia Region
Koroni is located on the southern tip of the Peloponnese - the southern most part of the Greek mainland. The picturesque village nestles below the ruins of a Venetian fort which now houses a charming monastery.
The harbour front is lined with traditional tavernas and a cafes and is just a few minutes walk from the apartments. In the other direction, again just a few minutes walk through the village is the famous Zaga beach, nesting ground of the Logga turtle, and 3km of unspoilt sandy beach.
Koroni has been nominated by UNESCO as one of four Mediterranean towns which represent the Mediterranean diet. this is because of the excellent local cuisine and the wide variety of food which is locally produced - from superb extra virgin olive oil, the famous Kalamata olive, unique dried figs, locally made pasta and of course local fish and seafood which you can buy on the harbour front every day direct from the fisherman.
From Koroni all the major visitor sites of the Peloponnese are reachable by car in a day - Methoni castle, Pylos Lagoon, Olympia, Ancient Messini, Epidaurus, Mystras, Mycenae, the Nemea wine region, The Mani.......

I am sorry that it has taken me so long to wrie a review for our wonderful holiday in August at the Iconpainter apartments. I loved our stay in Koroni and this was a great location, only 10 minutes walk from the lovely clean and relatively quiet Zaga beach.
The space was perfect for a couple and a 2 year old and our son and our friends' daughter really enjoyed playing in the little fountain in the courtyard. The bed was so comfortable and I don't have a single complaint to make. Michael and Maria also took great care of us, passing by regularly and we enjoyed the complemetary olive oil . I definitely recommend it and hope one day to try out Michael and Maria's villas.
I was also very happy about our decision to stay in that area (we travelled to Pilos afterwards) because on the ferry back we met a lot of people who had stayed on the islands, which were overcrowded in Augus,t while we found quiet beaches and tables at restaurants wherever we went.

"A place to return to"
We have now stayed six times with The iconpainter. And we will certainly return to live in one of the beautiful apartments . What can be described as the architect's dream has now. become even more beautiful, especially with the new very comfortable grands lits and the very nice bathroom and kitchen. We certainly come back as usual!
