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.

Reviewed 8 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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 was no AC, fans did not work, so we felt like in oven. Besides cold water which flows from the tap was very heated ( really hot!) so it was impossible to take shower.The night brought no coolness. We kept all windows opened but could not sleep in heated rooms. We decided tо leave because it was not a pleasure to spend holidays in sauna having cold water in early morning. The owner refused to return money for the rest prepaid 9 days.
Nevertheless I am sure that at another season you can enjoy staying there because the house is brand new inside with modern furniture and well equipped kitchen and bathroom (but there is no any wardrobe with hangers).

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.
