Du positif mais également beaucoup de négatif . L'endroit pourrait être excellent mais suite à lire

  • 2 of 5

le positif: La localisation de l'appartement est superbe avec un grand jardin, une petite plage privée avec des rochers. Des fauteuils,parasol à disposition. Rien à dire.Magnifique

Le négatif: Lors de notre arrivée, nous n'avons pas été bien accueilli. Anna nous a donné les clés et est partie en disant qu'elle était à l'étage si il y avait des questions. La cuisine était dans un état déplorable. Nous avons du rappeler Anna par mail ,car elle n'était plus sur place.Quand elle est revenue ,nous lui avons exposé les problèmes suivants:

1) Le wc avait une fuite et de l'eau sale s'écoulait dans la salle de bain.

2) Les plaques de cuissons de la cuisinière était complètement rouillée avec des morceaux qui se détachaient.Idem pour la rouille et la graisse sur la hotte de cuisson.

3)L'unique poêle pour la cuisine avait le teflon absent sur les 3/4de la surface avec de nombreuses griffes.Impossible de cuisiner sans rique de manger le téflon avec les aliments.(toxique)

4)Une des casseroles avait des éclats dans l'émail et le métal était à nu .

5)Il n'y avait pas d'eau chaude au robinet de la cuisine .

6)Pas de possibilité d'accrocher le pommeau de douche au mur. On devrait pouvoir se doucher les mains libres. Pas chez Anna.

7)Pas de bouilloire électrique, pas de fer à repasser, pas de seche cheveux. Ustensile de cuisine limité et fortement abimé.

8)Pas de lave linge dans l'appartement . Mais possibilité de donner le linge sale à laver. Ce n'est pas la même chose.

9)Vu l'état des plaques de cuisson, il faut 30 minutes pour chauffer un l'eau dans une casserole.

Après discussion, Anna nous a assuré que cette situation était normale pour la Grèce, que les grecs n'avait pas d'eau chaude pour la cuisine que les casseroles et poêle étaient normales ,etc. Que personne ne se plaignait et qu'elle n'était pas responsable des erreurs dans le texte des annonces. Elle était assez aggressive et nous a proposé de partir sans remboursement si cela ne nous convenait pas. Nous l'avons menacée d'en avertir tous les sites de location. Elle a finalement accepté de changer la poêle et la casserole et de nous placer dans un autre appartement vu le wc qui coulait.

Par enchantement dans l'autre appartement, il y avait de l'eau chaude au robinet de la cuisine, mais pas de télévision. Nous n'avons plus jamais revu Anna. .C'est dommage car l'endroit pourrait être excellent mais avec de la bonne volonté, de la bonne foi et du respect envers les clients.

Beautiful location, good price, not luxurious

  • 3 of 5

Anna seemed very nice and was extremely accommodating with regard to arrival times. The property is located right on the water, and the sunset views are spectacular. We took our dinner out to the wooden platform and it was really nice. Our stay was in March, and none of the outdoor furniture in the photos was out, but I imagine if we asked we could have had access to it. The beach was accessible over some really neat rock formations, and I highly recommend sturdy water shoes.

The apartment was pretty basic, but I didn't expect luxury for that price. The dishes and cooking supplies were adequate. The shower had good water pressure, but the temperature adjustment was pretty touchy and hard to balance. There was plenty of available bedding, but the actual mattresses were very, very firm. The mattress in the bedroom definitely needs to be replaced, as I could feel each spring digging into me. Overall, this place was a decent value for the off-season money, but I was extremely disappointed in the bed.

top place, quietly wonderful sunset, relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We are 6o+ and every year on this nice place. Always travelling by Ferry Ancona-Patras , car and bikes. So we can take at home best olive-oil and wine for the winter in Austria. The villa on top-place ist quiety located with garden, flowers and trees. Pergola shaded sitting areas, excellent house-wine from own wineyard. Wonderful view on the Ionion sea and sometimes to the island Zakinthos. Rocky coast with small quietly sandy beach. Best place for swimming, relaxing, for trips by bike among small villages with typical greek food.

Shopping-centers in Pyrgos. Ancient Olympia only 2o km. Katakolo old fishervillage with new port and Cruise-ships every day and also old fisherboats, restaurants, tourists and souvenirs. Friendly owners, they are living upstears in the villa , therefor always best service.

Thank You and see You next summer.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

A peace of heaven,.... in Greece.

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week here with my two children, 8 and 3 and it was a perfect, peaceful, family time.

The sea is close, and the small beaches dotted along the coast near the house present us a variety of possibilities for time by the beach, all within walking distance of the house! My son loves to snorkel around the rocks and see what wildlife he can find: crabs, fish, eels,..The sea is clean, clear and fresh here.

You can watch the small fishing boats, morning and evening pass along the sea in front of the house.

* a little known fact: there is a resort that used to be a Club Med, 6 km down the coast from here* - so, all the gorgeous setting of a Club Med, and few other people! perfect.

The dogs are tied up, so no worries there with them approaching the kids, but it's nice to have them there, they let you know when anyone is approaching the house. Which doesn't happen often. this is a very rural, family, agricultural part of Greece where you can simply BE.

Katakolo is a fun day out, with fantastic shopping, restaurants, music and general busy-ness.

There 's very well known Greek vineyard 1 km away: Merkouri, worth a visit if you like your wine.

And the village itself, and surrounding villages, have a few fantastic tavernas with local food of the highest quality (we subjected it to the 'taste test!). And Soooooo kid-friendly.

The hosts are friendly, while respecting your space and will do all they can to ensure your stay is comfortable and calm.

A place like no other,... a peace of heaven,.... in Greece.

there is good phone reception, if you need that.

Why to visit Ilia:

The Prefecture of Elia combines mountain and sea and it has notable holiday settlements, with thick sand, deep blue waters and pine trees that reach up to the sea, elements that make a unique landscape for holidays, sun and swimming, while the most important archaeological sites (Olympia, Ilida) attract tourists from all over the world.

The ancient city Elis had the oversight of the Olympic games and was once the center of the region during ancient times. After the siege by the Francs (1210), Elia became the center of the Principality of Moreos and enjoyed great prosperity.

Ancient Olympia

Holy and Global town. The cradle of Hellenism.

The most significant archeological site in Greece. Located at a 35 km distance from our region, it has magnificent works of art of unique historical and artistic value that are exhibited in the museum. The most important of all is the statute of Hermes of Praxiteles, which was sculpted in 340 BC by the renowned Phidias, and was found in the temple of Hera. The first modern Olympic Games were revived here by Pier de Coubertin and Dimitrios Vikelas.The Lighting Ceremony of the Olympic Flame begins at Olympia prior to the Olympic Games.

• Temple of Apollo Epicurius

The temple of Apollo Epicurius at Bassae, Figaleia, is one of the most important and imposing temples of antiquity. The local people of Figaleia dedicated it to Apollo Epicurius (the helper) because he assisted them in overcoming an outbreak of plague. The temple stands at an impressive 1,130 m above sea level in the very heart of the Peloponnese on mountains that lie between the prefectures of Eleia, Arcadia and Messinia. It is situated 14 km south of Andritsena and 11 km northwest of Perivolia. The temple was built in the second half of the 5th century BC (420-410 BC) and has been attributed Iktinos, the architect who designed the Parthenon. This is a monument of global importance and also one of the best preserved ruins from classical antiquity and was the first site in Greece to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1986.

Part of the frieze from the temple was broken off in 1814 and is now on display in the British Museum in London.

Ancient Elis

In antiquity, Elis was the capital of the prefecture of Eleia and the city that organised and hosted the Olympic Games. Today there is a museum which includes finds brought to light by excavations such as pottery, sculptures, etc. The finds date from the Protohelladic period up to the Roman period.


The Mercouri Estate is located in the western Peloponnesus in Korakochori, two kilometers from Katakolo 12km from Pyrgos and 32km from Ancient Olympia. It is an old large farm with a 140- year-old history in the production of wine, olive oil and, before that, Corinthian currant raisins. It is owned by the Mercouri family which can trace its roots to Epirus and Peloponnesus. They are family with a variety of interests who have a special love for the land.

Spa Springs

In addition to giving the area rare landscapes and outstanding natural beauty, Mother Nature also endowed Greece with springs with important healing properties.

In our area the Kyllini Baths are considered to be one of the oldest, most complete and yet truly modern spa spring complexes not just in Greece but in all of Europe.

Today perhaps the most cutting edge hydrotherapy and spa centre in the European Union is in operation there.

The spa is only open during the summer from 1 June to 30 October every year and is ideal for treating conditions such as:

• bronchial and allergic asthma (inhalation therapy)

• allergic rhinitis – sinusitis (nasal rinses – nasal inhalation)

• rheumatic arthritis (baths – hamam)

At the spa's facilities and at the old Roman baths, patients and users of the facilities with skin or arthritic conditions are rubbed with mud from a sulphur-rich spring to treat their condition.
