This is a unique experience. It is not a five-star resort, rather a collection of villas set in an exqusite olive grove with views down to the sea and across to the Taygetos Mountains. There is an uncrowded beach about ten minutes down the road. The accommodation is simple but comfortable, with an enormous verandahs - a wonderful place to sit and read and look at the view. The atmosphere is friendly and informal. Up the road at Charakopio, an unspoilt Greek village, are two really good tavernas Yianni's (Fouli cooks old-style Greek food) and Niko's, which does good bbq . The more touristy, postcard-pretty Koroni is only minutes away. It's a short drive to Methoni and Pylos and Kalamata is an hour away; the museum is a must. We will return.
