Saint Friday's, nestling at the foot of the Peloponnese is a cluster of 4 small bungalows, and two apartments, with mostly 1 bedroom, living-dining with a sofabed, kitchen and bathroom, which are very modern and clean. They are close to the coast and and look over to the lights of the town of Kalamata in the distance. A ten-minute walk leads to the beach and walking along to adjoining beaches is a delight. It is approx. 4 hours drive from Athens Airport
(mostly motorway). A hire car is of great benefit but there is a bus from Athens. I have visited 3 times. Sylvia and Andrew who were looking after the small group of villas are very familiar with the area and Andrew speaks Greek and was able to help me out when I wanted to find out about routes to Olympia and Ancient Messini.They were excellent hosts. The nearest small village is about 5 minutes drive and Koroni a much bigger village on the coast is about 10 minutes drive. Kalamata - the nearest city is about 1 hours drive around the coast road which is a pretty drive through small villages, olive groves and citrus and watermelon farms, the fruit market on on Wednesday in Kalamata should not be missed . The Peloponnese is full of historical landmarks and dotted around with beautiful little monasteries.The information on the website of Saintfridays was very useful for finding out about the area before I set off and was helpful for finding out about ways for getting there. I hope to return soon. Well worth a visit!
