Villa Ianos is set right by the sea in beautiful Kalamata, 230Km Northwest of Athens, and a mere 10Km from Kalamata International Airport, connected to numerous European cities.
300 square meters in all, it extends to two storeys. On the top floor there are three bedrooms, each with its dedicated bathroom/wc facilities, while the attic features one more bedroom with a WC. On the ground floor there are two sitting rooms fitted with fireplaces, two dining rooms, an office, a WC and a kitchen with an additional aid room. Additional amenities include a home cinema system with an 103inches display, HDTVs, PlayStation 3 console, HiFi stereo, computers and 12Mbps fast WiFi internet connection.
All rooms boast a magnificent view over the Messinian gulf, and all that not at the slightest compromise of the resident’s privacy. A short path right beside the house leads to an almost private secluded beach with clear water perfect to swimming.
As for the town itself, it features all kinds of beaches for swimming or strolls, seaside restaurants and bars, and a private yacht marina. It is the idea starting point for daily excursions to a host of important sites, as Pylos, with the palace of King Nestor, Koroni and Methoni with their castles, the unique Diros caves, Ancient Olympia and of course the adjacent Mani, with the famous Kardamili and Stoupa.
Cleaning, breakfast and meals by qualified personnel can be arranged upon the residents’ request.

A lovely villa in a beautiful part of the Peloponnese
We had a wonderfully relaxed time at the villa. It's very modern but with personal touches which make it feel homely. Popi, our host, and her son Yannis were around enough to feel we could ask for help (and very happy to provide it) but without it feeling intrusive. We came back a couple of times in the week to find everything tidied up, beds made, new sheets etc - a nice touch. Importantly, the air-conditioning is great - you can step out of high heat into blissful cool, and we all slept extremely well. The view from the terrace is beautiful - you have the sea just below you, reached by a slightly windy, rocky path to a shingle beach. The sea around here is beautifully calm, easy to swim in. Further down the coast there are sandy beaches - closest 15 mins away, best around 45 minutes at Stoupa. Back to the villa, the beds are firm - suited us but may not suit all. It has the mod cons you need (lacks work space in the kitchen, but that was our only minor issue). The Wi-Fi works pretty well - 8 out of 10. Comfy sofas. Once we'd worked out the TV and home cinema we had nice evenings watching Sleepless in Seattle and James Bond on the home cinema (there's a wide selection of films) and our 14 year old disappeared from time to time to the x-Box. Away from the house there are nice beaches south, gorgeous long sandy beaches an hour away on the west coast. We drove to ancient Olympia in an hour forty and you could get to Mycenae in the same time. Kalamata is a nice town - bars and restaurants down by the beach, a real town further up. Modern or traditional fare, as you like. It has a shingle beach. Overall thoroughly recommended for families with a car or couples wanting a nice space to sit and chill in.
