The Messenia Region
The Kalamaki villas are built on a hill between the small seaside villages of Petalidi and Chrani (a five minute drive from each )and their commanding location ensures wonderful views across the Gulf of Messinia to the mountains of Mani opposite. An excellent beach, also called Kalamaki, is only about 1500 meters away, towards Chrani. Petalidi and Chrani villages are situated halfway between Kalamata and Koroni a good base from which one can explore the region visiting the nearby Koroni, Methoni and Finikounda as well as Mystras,the Mani and Olympia.
Chrani is a quiet seaside hamlet with a long uncrowded beach and memorable views across the gulf to the mountainous Mani opposite.
Halfway down the inner side of the fertile, rolling Messinian peninsular, it is a good base from which to explore. Medieval Koroni, its vast fortifications still intact, lies some 12 kms to the south; whilst to the north a string of seaside villages – the largest being bustling (by comparison!) Petalidi 6 kms distant – means there is plenty of variety within a short bus or taxi ride. Up to 6 buses daily run between Koroni and Kalamata.
Chrani comprises two mini-markets, a pair of local cafés, a low-key garden bar and half a dozen good tavernas. Some offer free Wi-FI. It has a lovely shingle/sand beach which stretches for half a mile and has three beach-bars towards its northern end. All around are trees, shrubs and flowers: it remains green here even in high summer.
Guided walks are available and last year some excursions were offered but to make the most of the area car hire is a good idea. Koroni, Finikounda, Methoni and Pylos are all within an easy drive, as are some truly stunning (oft deserted) beaches.
Blessed with superb beaches, Finikounda is the prettiest seaside village of the Messinian peninsula. Being at the southern tip it is also the most remote, although can be busy for the short high season period. The three golden, uncrowded beaches here are of coarse sand (with some fine shingle outcrops) and shelve into a turquoise sea.
In season some dozen good tavernas, known for their fresh fish, offer good dining choice and there are a number of small village shops, cafés and bars. Some nightlife there is, especially in peak, butfor most of the year the village is low-key and relaxed.
