Villa | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Villa Dafni is one of 3 fabulous villas that comprise Kolpos Thea Villas. It is a peaceful, rural small holiday retreat set in an acre of beautiful terraced gardens and surrounded by fig and olive trees and with breathtaking views of the sea and mountains beyond. At the centre of the gardens is the wonderful large pool area with sun terrace, bar and barbecue area.
Villa Dafni is the smallest villa at 30sq.m. and has a large, private veranda around 2 sides enjoying the views equipped with dining furniture and soft furniture shaded by vines and sweet scented jasmine. This villa also has the exclusive use of a sunny seating area in the garden. The inside of the villa has a large very well-equipped kitchen/dining room with view of the sea and mountains. 2 steps up lead to a hall with doors to the bedroom/sitting room and the bathroom. The bedroom has a double bed and soft seating for indoor relaxation. There is a very spacious wardrobe. The bedroom has a partial sea view.
Unusually for self-catered villas there is a pool bar, very popular with the guests, serving low-priced drinks and excellent food, (the cook's meze is a must!). There is also a petanque area. The area around the villas is a very traditional rural Greek lifestyle, with low-key tourism and a wealth of ancient sites (including Olympia), many wonderful and varied beaches, charming little Greek fishing villages with waterside tavernas and a wonderful lush green countryside of mountains, woods and waterfalls-rare in many parts of Greece.
Smoking is permitted outside and at the bar.

The Messenia Region
The Peloponnese is an unknown jewel of Greece. The climate is gentler than many parts of Greece and winter rains create a wonderful green and lush countryside with rivers, lakes and waterfalls that run all year round. The searing temperatures found around Athens in August tend to be gentler here. The area has low-key tourism with wonderful local food and some of the best wines of Greece. There are high mountains inland, snow-capped until early summer- indeed there are two ski resorts in the Peloponnese. The West Coast has wonderful pine woods and vast beaches with sand dunes, the other coasts and inland areas have a huge range of plants and wild flowers,which carpet the olive groves up until mid May. The Peloponnese also has the most ancient Greek sites to be found in one area as it has played an important part in Greek history, Olympia is one of many wonderful sites in the area.
The Villas are near Kalamaki which is about 12 Km from Koroni, 6 Km from Petalidi and 3 Km from Chrani. There are many beaches, from long sandy sweeps to small coves of mixed sand and pebbles with great snorkelling. The whole of our peninsula has wonderful views with the sea on three sides and nearly always in visible. There are many ancient sites, Olympia, Ancient Messini, Mystras and many more. There are also many Medieval castles in the area. All around the coast are really picturesque fishing towns and villages where holidaymakers can sit at the water's edge eating delicious food at very low prices and watching the fishing boats come and go. If you are looking for a trully relaxing holiday in a stunningly beautiful area of Greece that has changed little in the past 40 years then you will fall in love with Messinia and the Peloponnese. Many who come here return again year after year.
