This luxury six double bedroom 400m2 villa is walkable (less than 5 mins) to a panoramic taverna and (in 10 mins) to the village which has four tavernas open all year round. It is less than a 5 min drive to the nearest sandy beach where there are four tavernas, one with plunge pool.  To the rear it has mountain views of theTaygetos range. To the right 13000m2 of private terraced olive groves form part of the property. To the left views of the gorge, sea and mountains and to the front open sea views of the bay and the Messinian headland beyond.  Kitries harbour with it authentic fresh seafood restaurants is a 10 minute drive.

The normal changeover days are either Saturday or Sunday. Other changeover days may be arranged. Kalamata airport is about 30 minutes drive from the house - for direct flights try easyjet.com, ba.com or thomascookairlines.co.uk. Kalamata also benefits from two flights a week from Athens.

Useful Information on local places to eat:

There is one restaurant immediately above the villa (o’Lofos) owner by our friend Athanasis about 3-5 mins walk and a further 3 tavernas and

restaurants (Anavriti, Stella’s and Sunrise) in the village about 10-12 minutes walk.

Also the owners have found that Babis at the slope at the  far end of Sandova beach is worth a visit. Their favourites are the authentic fish tavernas at Kitries 3km south of Sandova or Kanas Fish and Pasta at Kalamata marina.

TESTIMONIALS

  "Perfection, amazing time, love the house, hope we can come again"  September 2008

 "The perfect place for the perfect holiday""We were totally taken aback when we arrived at the house, it was even better than the pictures. The bedrooms are all large with ensuites and balconies and the views from the balconies are to die for. The well equipt kitchen is also huge, perfect for cooking for large numbers. The double height living room with large flatscreen tv, good range of DVDs and comfortable sofas got a lot of use on the rare occassion it rained.But the best part was the infinity pool, we spent many a day and night around it, in it and admiring it. A great place to watch the beautiful sunsets and sunrises. We also had a BBQ every night and sat out under the stars drinking the local wine.The house is so good we barely left, only to get supplies and for a dip in the sea. There are plenty of things to do in the region and we went on one day trip but couldn't wait to get to back to the pool.You definately need a car to get here as it is quite isolated. We drove from Athens, an easy 3 1/2 hour drive and plenty of things to see on the way.It was an amazing holiday and I would highly recommend it, in fact I think we will go back next year."

"The villa is out of this world, you have thought of every luxury.  The pool and views are mind blowing.  The locals are very friendly.  We have had a fantastic 2 weeks.  Thank you for letting us share your beautiful villa.  We would love to come again some day soon"  August 2009

Great villa, incredibly well equipped, stunning views all set in an area of outstanding natural beauty with first class eating establishments within easy reach. Highly recommended  September 2010

Olive Tree House is the perfect place to stay when you travel to Greece!  The house itself is well-appointed and very comfortable, like a home should be.  The pool is large, cool and refreshing with unbelievable views.  The location is calm and peaceful with fabulous scenic views, as well as minutes from fine beaches, situated on the beautiful Mani Peninsula, and close enough to Kalamata to provide everything you could want.  Don't miss eating at the Taverna Sandovas just next door!  The food is delicious, the walk there is delightful, and the family members/owners provide an excellent experience of the friendly and welcoming Greek culture!  They own the olive groves in which Olive Tree House sits, and they make their own olives, oil, cheese, bread and more!  This was a fabulous vacation for us, and we will definitely choose the Olive Tree House again when we return!                      July 2011

We want to thank you very much for the perfect villa during our vacation in Peloponnese. The villa was exactly what we needed - it let us feel at home away from home. It included all we needed and we felt very comfortable and relaxed. We would like to thank especially lovely Joanna for being there for us any time for any need. Joanna - you are the perfect host for this villa and a very nice, kind and beautiful woman. wish you both all the best.

Just perfect. Not only the Villa but the service and support from Alexandra and Joanna. Thanks for enabling one of the best holiday weeks we as family ever had together. Udo-Gaby-Janina-Michelle-Nina-Tara-Dimitrios and Bastian Klein family, Germany, June 16, 2014

Udo Klein, Germany, 16th June 2014

This is a perfect villa for a big family. We stayed in the villa 14-21/6. We was 13 people. We loved it. The beds was a little bit hard but everything else was great. A special thanks to Alexandra and Joanna

Susanne Westlund, Tyres??, Sweden, 07th July 2014

I just spent one week with a group of 12 adults in Olive Tree House and we had a great time there! The villa looks exactly as on the pictures, the pool is great, the housekeeper Joanna very nice and everything just worked perfectly. I can highly recommend this villa for a nice and relaxing holiday!

Pia, Vienna, Austria , 18th September 2014

The villa was the perfect place for our 3 families to holiday together. The location is idyllic with wonderful views back to the mountains and out to sea. The sunsets were stunning! It is fantastically equipped and with such a large group, it was great to have so many possible places to sit, relax, eat and enjoy the heat and scenery. We ate well in the local tavernas (within walking distance)and enjoyed trips to Kardamyli, Ancient Messene, Methoni/Koroni, Mystra and Kalamata - all good days out. The pool was lovely and with the sea so close we had the best of all worlds and plenty of activities to keep all age groups entertained. Joanna looked after us really well and made sure we were comfortable and Alex ensured all arrangements went smoothly. Thank you both. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa to others.

Jane Williamson, Oxford, 21st August 2016

A truely amazing villa in a perfect setting for relaxing holiday. The communication prior to arrival was superb and the whole process was simple and straightforward. On arrival Joanna was there to greet us and explain everything and provided us with her details should we need to contact her during our stay. The villa is so well quipped, a real home from home, with every detail thought of. The location of the villa was unbelievable with amazing views, a fantastic place to absorb the delights of traditional Greece, with the locals providing a warm and welcoming greeting every time we met them. A car is essential to get around as the location means walking to the shops is very challenging. Would highly recommend this villa and would love to visit again one day.

Gemma , Kent, England. , 25th August 2017

First impressions were of the outstanding view over the bay and fabulous infinity pool. The terrace overlooking the pool was conveniently positioned for meals next to the very well equipped kitchen. The open plan living area was great for our large family group with recreational areas to suit all ages! We had a fantastic week and especially enjoyed the fish restaurants and swimming in Kitries. The waterfalls at Polylimnios were worth visiting for those who are more adventurous but wear sensible footwear. The archaeological site at Messini was stunning and well worth a visit. Thanks for a fantastic villa and facilities for our holiday.

Penny, Winchester, 06th August 2018

Our 2-week stay at Olive Tree House was fantastic in every way, a real first class experience, and Joanna was a superb local host. We were 2 families (8 adults and 2 teens) sharing, and found lots of space and flexibility in the accommodation, which is kitted out to a very high standard with all mod cons. We loved the location with the fabulous views, 4 very authentic-Greek Tavernas within walking distance (Taverna Anavriti was our fave...you'll need Google Maps to find it in the back streets of Megali!!), and the beaches within a short drive...Kitries is particularly picturesque. We spent many days lazing by the pool, followed by BBQs while enjoying the absolutely stunning sunsets. We loved Kalamata market for fresh meat, fish, fruit and veg, and it was great to experience a very real Greek holiday location... Highly recommended!!

ROB S, UK, 04th August 2019

The Peloponnese region has a warm Mediterranean climate which enjoys fairly mild temperatures all year round.   The summers are generally very sunny and get very little rain.  July and August are the hottest months.  The winter is the rainy season, with December through March being the rainiest months.
