Lovely house, shame about the noise
Villa Olive Grove is a lovely house - clean, comfortable, tasteful, spacious and very private. The house is well maintained and well equipped although we could not find a kettle. Also the house notes were only in German.There are good views from the large terrace across the sea to the other side of the Gulf. There are a couple of pleasant sandy beaches just a short walk away. We could not find a footpath to Koroni which is around 10 minutes by car.
Unfortunately our stay was spoilt by very loud music played over several hours on a daily basis. There is a house being built a little way along and we understand that the sons of the people having the house built were staying in an adjacent house. On the second day of our stay the very loud music started at 16:30 and continued until 21:30. We asked them to turn it down which they did slightly. The next day it started again so we decided to go into Koroni for the evening. We ended up having to do that for the rest of the week as we could not relax or enjoy the beautiful view from the terrace. (So we also spent more money than we would have done). On the Thursday some friends came to visit us and the music started at 14:30 - it was awful. We either had to go inside with the doors shut or leave the villa. To make matters worse there was also noise from the building work - that wouldn't have been too bad as they stopped at around 15:00 for siesta but the fact that we then had to put up with loud music was just too much. We were disappointed and frustrated at the lack of concern or help from the owners. We could not get through to them initially but were able to speak to a contact who said she would let them know of the problem. The contact did try and help by contacting the mother of the boys (it would seem that the noise was a known problem). We did not hear anything from the owners until my husband asked the contact to ask them to phone us. We would have thought they would have contacted us straight away and come to the house to hear the problem for themselves and to see what they could do to help. It was only after we returned to England that we received an e-mail from them and it would seem that they weren't in Greece anyway. A concern for future guests is that the boys will be neighbours as the house being built is owned by their parents. Thankfully we had spent a quiet and relaxing week in the Mani the previous week.
We would have given Villa Olive Grove 5 stars but for the noise.
We apologize again for the noise and we can understand that this was horrible for you and your family. In the background we did really everything we could to help you. But also for us the loud music was a negative surprise (and - for future holiday makers: It will not happen again for sure, we are going to have a meeting with the parents of these youngsters) which we didn`t expect because it never happened before.
To make other guests believe this would be usual is not fair and you know that very well. It is our wish and our pride from the bottom of our hearts to make people happy for the time they save up for and they are looking forward to all year - every detail in our houses is telling about that. However - we`ve sent you the money back and wish you the best.
Apologies and compensation
This is a short post script to the review posted by Binki. Following our review which mentioned the noise issue, we were contacted by the owners who apologised profusely on behalf of their neighbours. They assured us that this was a unique occurrence and that they had dealt with the matter. Moreover, they fully compensated us for our stay at the Villa Olive Grove. As we said in the original review, apart from the noise we experienced we were very impressed by the property and would have given it 5 stars. The rating on this review refers to the way in which the owners have dealt with us since we returned from holiday.
Romantic villa in Koroni
We really had a wonderful time in Aghios Triada (Koroni). The desciption of the villa is totally accurate and the surrounding is magnificent. The sea is within walking distance from the house (5 minutes) and the view from the terrace of the house is breath-taking. The neighbourhood is really quiet, not to mention the beach which looks like a private beach. We really appreciated the choice of the furniture and the kind attentions when we arrived (bottle of wine, fruit juice and surprises for the children and a bone for our dog!). We warmly recommend the place but advise the owner to make an English guide to the villa (the one we had was only in German). Don't hesitate to visit Nikos' taverna in Vasilitsi, the food is delicious!
Wunderschöne Lage und tolles Domizil
Alles super... fürsorgliche und sympathische Vermieter, gemütliche und vollständige Einrichtung, tolle Sicht aufs Meer, kurzer Weg zum Strand (leider viele Algen), warmes klares Wasser, tolle Ausflugsziele... perfekt zum Entspannen!
Liebe Gäste, vielen Dank für die nette Bewertung!
Wir hatten Anfang Oktober den ersten Hurrikan in der Geschichte in und um Koroni - hoffentlich der letzte für lange Zeit. Daher war der Strand noch ziemlich verwüstet, allerdings nicht durch Algen - diese gibt`s hier nicht - sondern schlichtweg durch Sträucher, Pflanzen, Blätter usw. Normalerweise haben wir hier naturbelassene schöne Sand- und Kiesstrände und auch glasklares Wasser. Sogar die unechte Karettschildkröte (Caretta caretta) vergräbt im Hochsommer ihre Eier im Sand.
Schöne Aussicht, gute Lage
Wir waren rund eine Woche in Koroni und haben die Zeit genossen. Das Haus liegt ca. 8 min zu Fuß vom Strand entfernt (zwei Strände zur Auswahl) und 8 min mit dem Auto von Koroni entfernt.
Auf dem Grundstück befinden sich noch zwei weitere Häuser und der eine Nachbar hat eine kleinen Hof mit Schafen und Hühnern man ist also nicht ganz alleine. Die Hähne krähen früh morgens, aber das hat uns nicht gestört.
Das Haus ist sauber und gut ausgestattet, der Blick von der Terrasse ein Traum. März bis Mai ist die schönste Zeit für eine Urlaub, alles blüht und es ist noch nicht zu heiß.
Wir hatten einen Notfall und erhielten vom Vermieter recht schnell Hilfe, danke dafür.
Wir haben in Koroni eine schöne Urlaubswoche verbracht. Das Haus ist sauber und zweckmäßig und feriengerecht eingerichtet. Es liegt schön mit toller Aussicht über einem kleinen Strand auf einem Grundstück mit zwei weiteren Häusern. Auf dem Nachbargrundstück gibt es Hühner und Schafe. Zum hübschen Ort Koroni, zum Supermarkt und weiteren Stränden sind es nur wenige Autominuten. Für Familien (auch mit kleinen Kindern) gut geeignet.
Sehr unzuverlässiger und langsamer Internetzugang.
Embedded in a soft, hilly green landscape in southwest Peloponne, you will find the fishing city of Koroni. The area is characterized by olive groves, wine gardens and Cypress trees and thus, Koroni is justly labeled as the 'pearl of Peloponne' by the Greeks. Villa olive grove is located near the sea coming from Harakopio to Koroni in the district of Agia Triada (Holy Trinity) and is in an absolutely peaceful location, two peaceful, small natural beaches can be reached on foot in 5-10 minutes. You can get to other beautiful beaches nearby with a car. The water has a top quality level, is crystal clear and is comfortably warm up until October due to the mild climate. In the spring and fall, you will find optimal conditions to go running, mountain biking and hiking. Koroni can be reached with a car in about 5 minutes, where you will find everything for your daily needs (doctor, bank, mail, etc.) and you can find where typical Greek village life occurs year-round.
Other Activities: Walking, Nordic walking
