Quiet retreat in the olive groves

Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Gytheio, Laconia Region, Peloponnese
Newly renovated farmhouse in the quiet village of Melissa offers a rare getaway in the southern Peloponnese. Guests have the whole property to themselves - the lower level is unoccupied. The accommodation boasts two generous bedrooms, both with beautiful shuttered and fly screened windows, an elegant bathroom with a beautiful mountain view and an open plan kitchen/lounge area that opens out on two sides to balconies. Enjoy a retreat amidst working olive and orange groves with breathtaking views across the impressive Taygetos mountain ranges.

While the farmhouse offers highly sought after tranquility and peaceful surrounds, it is only 15 minute drive to the thriving port town of Gytheio.

I do not recommend this house for summer holidays. In July we rented it for 10 days but run away after 1 night and had to find another accommodation. When we arrived the temperature outside was +44, inside the house – almost the same. There...More

About the neighbourhood
Melissa is a working village and the surrounding area is famed for its olive oil. This region has not been overly developed for tourism which gives a great sense of being somewhere real. Nearby Agios Nikolaos has a great taverna and the drives between villages through the mountains are spectacular.

In Gythio, our friend Taki runs a wonderful taverna Barba Sideris, right on the water with local music on Saturday nights. Pallyria is also a wonderful seafood restaurant, around the harbour towards the infamous Kranai. It boasts the best chowder we have ever tasted! While Mavrovouni is the nearest beach, for something a little quieter we can recommend nearby Skoutari.
