Pilinos is a traditional stone house with a beautiful terrace garden

Situated in the heart of a quintessential Greek village, a holiday house near Koroni with a gorgeous secluded terrace and with views stretching across the valley and towards the Mani over the Messinian Gulf.

The house has 3 bedrooms, two doubles and one twin, and sleeps 6 people. It is furnished simply and comfortably. There is air-conditioning available, although given its location at the top of the hill it catches the afternoon breezes beautifully. The garden, which is not overlooked, has plenty of shade and a range of places to sit and relax including a very comfy hammock. There are peaceful beaches less than ten minutes away by car at Amoudi and Kalamaki and more ‘organised’ beaches to the east and west, including our favourites Tsapi, Triada and Peroulia. Easily accessible, Pilinos is an hour from Kalamata airport and around 3 1/2 hours from Athens.

The bustling harbour of Koroni, with small local supermarkets, bakeries, fresh fish shops, butchers and a wide variety of eateries, as well as a busy market on Sunday mornings, mean you will eat and drink well. We love to watch the world go by with a cool drink at Takis’ kafenion by the water, and have been lucky enough to spot seals and turtles there. And do look out for Joanna’s fruit and vegetable stall on the roadside on your way into town, her oranges make the most exquisite juice and the house is equipped with a juicer to start your mornings perfectly.

Located in Vasilitsi – a traditional Greek village

The house is situated at the tip of the south-westernmost “finger” of the Peloponnese. Rural and remote but not far from Koroni, Vasilitsi is a traditional village with a few 21st century additions. You will hear donkeys and chickens as well as motorbikes and TV’s. The residents are very friendly and the church bells are lively.

In a region known for its wonderful oil and olives the village is surrounded by open countryside and fantastic views across the Gulf of Messinia to the Taygetos mountains of the Mani. With a small village shop plus two kafenia, you can get all you need within a short walk of the front door. And the jewel in the crown is Nikos’, a fantastic taverna renowned for miles around for the quality of the food, mostly organic and grown by Nikos, the generous size of the portions and the small size of the bill!

Nous avons adoré notre séjour de 3 semaines chez Emma. La maison est ravissante, très joliment décorée et très propre ; on s’est sentis chez nous. Les différentes terrasses sont très agréables: on peut petit-déjeuner au frais à l’arrière, déjeuner à l’ombre à l’entrée et paresser dans le jardin toute la journée. On arrive toujours à trouver de l’ombre. La cuisine est bien équipée et la chambre principale super agréable. L’environnement est paisible mais pour les personnes sensibles, l’église est toute proche et les cloches sonnent tous les quarts d’heure et le WE la messe est retransmise à l’extérieur😊. Donc les bouchons d’oreilles peuvent être utiles; en ce qui nous concerne, on s’est vite habitués. La taverne du village est bonne. Le resto Socrates à Chrani est très bon ainsi que To Kastronà Methoni. Emma a été adorable et très réactive et à répondu à toutes nos questions. Nous relouerons sa maison avec grand plaisir.

Loved every minute at this picture postcard of a place. You'll be tucked away on a hilltop village with the breeze cooling you as you plan your beach adventure, or your evening trip to the exceptional village taverna, Niko's. Bravo Pilinos!

Maison pleine de charme. Le tout est personnalisé avec goût et attention, et hyper bien équipé.
Nous avons apprécié les notes dans le guide. Le hamac sur la terrasse +++.
Par contre nous avons eu un peu froid lors d'une soirée avec beaucoup de vent et nous nous sommes pas lancé dans l'allumage du poêle qui semble un peu capricieux. Mais les autres jours étaient bien chaud. Nous étions un peu triste de quitter cette maison où l'on se sentait paisible.
Par contre la Taverne Nikos nous ne la recommandons pas ils n'étaient pas kids friendly.

Pilinos is the perfect cottage for rural Greece lovers. It's very well looked after, cosy, very clean and well equipped. The communication with Emma was impeccable. The nearby beaches are stunning. Moreover the village is a good starting point for trips to the mountains and archaeological sites. It's very relaxing spending time in the beautiful, green garden with lovely seating. We were regular guests at the local grocery store and restaurant Nico's. Highly recommended!

We had a beautiful stay at Pilinos House! The house is charming, comfortable, spotlessly clean and contains everything you need to relax on holiday. Located in a picturesque and friendly Greek village and close to incredible beaches, Pilinos is a great base to explore some of the most interesting and beautiful Greek landscapes. As well as a sweet village shop, the supermarket, bakery and bars / restaurants are a short drive away. If you’re looking to slow down, rest and appreciate nature at its finest, then Pilinos is for you!
