One-Off Feature

Seabreeze Villas is made up of two individual holiday homes, nestled within a private organic olive grove. The 2 acres of grounds provide a beautiful, natural environment in which to relax - meander through the trees and gardens, lounge around the pool or enjoy a drink on the roof terrace whilst gazing down to the azure Mediterranean waters, as they lap gently against the sandy beaches.

General Info

The two purpose-built holiday homes reside within our 2 acre organic olive grove, surrounded by gorgeous sea and mountain views. There is nothing to disturb the tranquility apart from the morning bird song and the midday call of the cicadas. We offer a basket of our fresh vegetables, olive oil, olives, marmalade and fresh eggs when required. In the house you will find a booklet with our personal recommendations for local attractions, the best beaches, lovely walks, and local tavernas. The houses are ideally located for exploring the numerous places of interest in the area, including the impressive castles of Methoni, Pylos and Koroni, Ancient Messene, Olympia (first site of the Olympics), Mystra and 2 nearby waterfalls, as well as various walks along country lanes and coastal footpaths. The closest beach is 800m away and the charming local seaside fishing village of Methoni 1.5km.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

The villas are set in the South Western Peloponnese, an area which abounds in history and natural beauty. This part of Greece has an ideal climate in Spring and Autumn for walking and admiring the carpets of wild flowers. Untouched by mass tourism, this is a truly original, charming Greek destination with plenty to offer all the family. Picturesque fishing villages, sites of antiquity, pristine beaches, tasty tavernas, village cafes, natural wonders, and plenty more to discover and explore. Hire a small motorboat or take a trip on a local fishing boat to experience the vistas from a different viewpoint. Learn to windsurf or scuba dive, or go snorkelling in the various coves and bays. Find the balance between relaxing in the grounds and discovering what this beautiful area has to offer.

Further Details
Our 2 acre site incorporates various aspects of eco and agritourism. We rear chickens, for their delicious free range organic eggs and have a developing organic vegetable and fruit garden using permaculture methods. All our seasonal produce is provided in the welcome pack to sample. Guests, especially kids are welcome to feed our chickens any kitchen leftovers, and may on request collect the freshly laid mega yolk eggs. The 2 acre site, with tree houses, hammocks, pool table and table football allows for children's imaginative play in a natural environment.All our farming activities incorporate green, organic and sustainable methods. Our aim is to work alongside Nature in a harmonious and respectful manner. From: cultivating, harvesting, feeding and maintaining our 200 olive trees, vegetable garden and fruit orchards. We incorporate permaculture methods, helping in maintaining a healthy balanced soil and minimize water usage. All garden plants are endemic and selected to have minimal water requirements and are watered using a drip system, again conserving water wherever possible. Our chickens are free range and aid us in sharing the kitchen waste with our compost bin as well as providing enormous tasty eggs. As often as possible we use recycled materials for outside building projects ( greenhouses, pergolas, raised vegetable beds, walls, paths, animal shelters, tree houses etc) either combed from beaches when storms have delivered timbers, or stones and wood recovered from dump sites. Our swimming pool incorporates the most energy efficient filter system and liner. Thus enabling us to keep her filled with water even in winter and only having to refresh the water by a third instead of 100% every spring. All produce and products we can not provide for are sourced locally and we encourage our guests in the same way. We provide information from where to buy locally caught fish or visit local artists galleries to which restaurants cook original local cuisine often with ingredients from their own farms. We are happy to inform guest of any local festivals or cultural events such as Greek dancing or local musical performances either in Methoni or Pylos castles or the surrounding area. We encourage recycling of both food ( chickens eat everything! compost uses the rest.) and packaging, through recycling bins.
