If you want to be surrounded by nature, peace and quiet, then this is the place to be, a great place for re-charging your batteries, come and relax. No children, just you. Beaches are not crowded, lots of places to visit. Ask me about private tours. Please note that it is advisable to rent a car or scooter as the beach is nearly an hour walk downhill. I can organise car hire, or taxi, or I can personally drive you for a small charge. Yoga, Reiki and Horseriding can be arranged .

Kalamata is Messinia’s capital and the second-largest city in the Peloponnese. Built on the site of ancient Pharai, the city takes its modern name from a miracle-working icon of the Virgin Mary known as kalo mata (good eye). It was discovered in the stables of the Ottoman aga (governor), who converted to Christianity as a result of the miracles it performed. The icon now resides inside the city’s oversized cathedral, the Church of Ypapantis.
In front of the kastro(castle) is the small, but attractive, old town, which was almost totally destroyed by the Turks during the War of Independence and rebuilt by French engineers in the 1830s. On 14 September 1986 Kalamata was devastated by an earthquake; 20 people died, hundreds were injured and more than 10,000 homes were destroyed. There is a bus station in Kalamata and there are a few buses a day into town. There are 4 Taverna's in the village and many more down by the sea. There is a minimum of 2 nights for staying.If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
