Environment Messinia

Between the mountains and the hills, olive trees and cypresses, oleanders and plane trees is some sunny places that you will definitely visit during your stay. To mention a few, to start my hometown.


In Kamaria we live. Here you can always go in case of questions or problems.


The most beautiful fishing village in the area. It is 4 kilometers from the villa. You can get there in the morning at the fish market to buy the best fish. There are several supermarkets, bakeries and butchers and swarming with good, inexpensive restaurants. You look forward to more actively than a culinary vacation than renting in Finikounda a sail, windsurf or catamaran.


Methoni is a pleasant town 8 kilometers away from the villa. There really is everything for sale and there are numerous terraces, situated around a square. Restaurant 'Klimataria' is a must. Here you can go to the bank, the post office and the doctor, although I hope you will not last visit. Well worth a visit is the Venetian fortress of the 16th century Bourzitoren; this is the biggest defense fortress in the Mediterranean.


In many people, the town of Pylos (Pylos) known (20 kilometers away from the villa). They remember the fantastic location of the city or the striking square with its plane trees. Many will also include a visit to the palace of 'Nestor', which dates from the 13th century BC and was only excavated in 1939. In the vicinity of Pylos are two 18 hole golf courses available for golf lovers!


20 km you will find this fishing village; the oldest in the area. The village is known for its narrow steep streets are painted with lime. An imposing fortress containing a small monastery. You can have a nice lunch on the promenade, the way to Koroni is very varied and the beaches encounters invite you to swim.


Kalamata, the capital of the province of Messinia, is mainly a modern city. A day of shopping in Kalamata definitely a success. Here are the jewelers and traders in leather goods. There is also a wide selection of fashion shops. But your interest goes out to small authentic shops then you will find them here still happy!


Finally, I call on the famous Olympia. Here still, once ignited in four years, the Olympic flame before it is brought by marathon runners to Athens. A tour in the thousands of years old arena? Or visit the magnificent Olympic Museum? Create a beautiful day there. The route north along the coast you will not stop in any case. The region is part of a European program for the conservation and protection of nature ("Natura 2000"). This has ensured that there are no major industries will be located in the future, despite the fact that working simultaneously on the accessibility of the area through the construction of new highways.
