The space

Apartments "Esperides" rest among the vast sandy beautiful beaches of the Ionian coast in West Peloponnese offering easy access to the best this intoxicating region has to offer for families while some small inlets are perfect for those who are looking for a more isolated 'wild' atmosphere.

Surrounded by a garden of 4000m² and situated just in front of the sea overlooking the Islet Proti Esperides are designed to provide complete privacy and view to the open sea horizon.

The Houses

Esperides consists of five apartments called Aegli, Arethousa, Erythia, Estia and Esperia all names of the nymphs Esperides in greek mythology. Each apartment can host five persons max. They consist of two main rooms; the bedroom which has a queen size bed and the living room with two single beds and a sofa-bed, as well as the kitchen and the bathroom.

The houses dispose of a yard with lounge areas, a patio area and a balcony, ideal places from which one can relax, sunbathe and admire the splendid sunset in the Ionian open Sea and the islet Proti.

Interaction with guests

Since my family lives near the premises please expect their help and services, from key exchanges, to change linens and towels, to repairs, and anything in between. I am always on hand for advice info and anything you may need before and during your stay.

The neighborhood

Just in front of the apartments, you do ten steps and you are in the water, an almost "private" beach of the rocky seashore with clear water overlooking the sunset on the small island Proti. It is ideal for snorkeling and diving. Near the apartments (around 300m away) there is a pool, a bar and a mini market.

A long sandy beach, Lagkouvardos, is only 15 minutes walking distance (2km) far from Esperides, while 1km on the other way you find Marathopolis, a fisherman's village along the sea with wonderful seashores and beaches all around. On the pedestrian street along the sea you can find taverns and cafes, pharmacy, bakery, butcher-shop and supermarket. Furthermore, 6km from Marathopolis there is Gargalianoi village, where you can find several shops, health and bank services as well as a street market every Saturday morning with fresh vegetables and local products.

The Area of West Messinia

In the district of Trifylia and Pylos there are a lot of activities to do such as winetasting, trekking, biking, birdwatching and scuba diving as well as to explore the cultural heritage and enjoy the slow pace of daily life in Messinia's villages.

This peaceful and close to nature retreat is perfect for relaxing holidays with various opportunities in terms of leisure and agritourism activities. UNESCO World Heritage List sites, including Ancient Olympia, the Temple of Apollo Epicurius and Ancient Messini as well as the Palace of Nestor, are all within driving distance.

Grab a pair of binoculars and observe the thousands of migrating birds who visit the Yalova lagoon each year. Unique species like the African Chameleon (the only place in Europe that survives) and Caretta Caretta sea turtles among others find home in the surrounding ecosystem. Take a break and go trekking at the nearby waterfalls of Neda and Polilimnio where nature blooms.

We are looking forward to welcoming you for holidays all year round and to introducing you to the unique landscapes, history and culture of our region.

Getting around

You definitely need a car to get around and explore many natural and archaeological sites of Messinia and Olympia.

Esperides is a 3h and 20 minutes drive by car from Athens' airport, 60 minutes drive by car from Kalamata`s airport and 30 minutes drive by car from Kalo Nero`s railway station.

We had a very nice time at Fotio's place. The apartment has an incredible view and was very easy to find. Communication and check-in was perfect even though we booked on a very short notice. All in all: totally recommended!

The apartment and surrounding space were exactly as described and as shown in the photos. They were in very good condition and perfect for a family of four. The view of the sea and sunsets from the veranta were beautiful and exactly what we needed to relax on our holiday. The location is ideal as it is very close to the best beaches in the area and some of the most beautiful beaches in Greece. It is also ideally located for short trips to very important archaeological sites (Mycenaean palace of Nestor, Olympia, ancient Messini) and other beautiful locations in Messinia (Pylos and Methoni). Would definitely recommend Esperides and would very likely return in the future.

I'm 35 years old working and living in Greece. My family owns these five apartments rented out all year round. Since they live near the premises please expect their help and services, from key exchanges, to change linens and towels, to repairs, and anything in between. Enjoy a slow pace of life and this amazing sea view far from every day life and loud city environment!
