Pyrgos villa description

Villa Feia in Korakohori is situated in a private olive grove and vineyard and overlooking a private bay with access to a private beach and views of the Ionian sea (clear day and night views of Zante and Kefallonia). A spacious and architecturally designed house (with a personal and hospitable touch), it can comfortably accommodate up to 5 people. Large veranda and garden, opened terrace, barbecue and terrace shower, garden furniture, dining area with a view of the sea and garden and a private swimmingpool are just a few of the amenities on the ground floor.. Both bedrooms on the second floor have comfortable furniture and their own balconies with breathtaking views of the sea and garden. The living room can sleep 1 person on a comfortable sofabed when needed. The livingroom also includes a dining area. All outside areas are fully lit at night and both the property and the garden are suitable for children. Its unique location and surroundings makes it a popular destination both for summer and winter travellers.

Local area - Ileia Perfecture: Important archaeological sites of Greece like Ancient Olympia, endless beaches, internationally recognized canyons with amazing journeys in nature, protected areas with rare species of animals, birds and plants, traditional residential areas that highlight the particular characteristics of each region. All of this creates a colorful picture that will amaze you and one by one you will discover the pieces that complete the puzzle of Ileia.

Climate in Ileia: Summers in Ileia are reliably long and dry with brilliant sunshine and generally calm seas. This sort of weather usually lasts from May to October, with July and August being the hottest months. In spring and autumn there is generally plenty of sun although the temperatures are lower than in the summer. December to March is the wet and windy period. In summer the wind is usually very light in the mornings, picking up around noon and dying away at sunset. Sea temperatures for swimming start at 18ºC/65ºF in May rising to 25ºC/76ºF in August and falling to 21ºC/72ºF in October. Occasionally the evenings may seem cooler so a jumper is advisable even during the summer months. Sporadic showers can occur throughout the season. In May there are wild flowers in profusion, and as June approaches there are fireflies and the water temperature is rising. Greater quantities of fruit and vegetables are available. In July and August warm seas have phosphorescence and high temperatures. September and October see the start of the grape harvest and the valleys are carpeted with cyclamen. The bracken and olive trees remain green throughout the year. Sporadic showers can occur throughout the season.

Directions: The main road that leads to Villa Feia is the highway 'Patras-Pyrgos-Ancient Olympia'. At the 91st km from Patras, just a couple of kilometers before the entrance of Pirgos City, you meet the Lasteika Crossroad and you turn right. The crossroad is controlled by traffic lights and road signs there guide us in southwest Katakolon and Skourochori. The actual roadsign reads: 'Katakolo 11klm'. We follow the road and having come across the railway line, we continue for 200 meters and then turn right again towards Skourochori. We cross Skourochori and follow the signs to Korakohori which is approximately 5 km fron Skourochori. Once in Korakochori we follow the local signs to Domaine Mercouri.
