About Vassilios Psonis
I am a retired Greek diplomat, born and raised in Kalamata. My wife and I are well traveled and enjoy meeting and making friends with people from all over the world. We speak Greek, English, Italian and some French. Our hobbies include boating, fishing, trekking, going to concerts, reading and travelling. This is my summer house. My wife and I live on the main floor and we are renting the apartment on the top floor.
Vassilios Psonis purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Vassilios Psonis chose Petalidi
The apartment is very private , with its own separate entrance. The large, private veranda has a spectacular view of the Messinian Bay and the Mani mountains. It is fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, including beach towels, beach chairs and beach umbrella. It is conveniently located halfway between Kalamata and Koroni, and Kalamata airport and the motorway to Athens are only a 20 minute drive away.
What makes this Apartment unique
On the sea, spectacular views of the gulf and mountains across the bay, beautiful beaches nearby, five minute walk to the village, close to airport. Many beautiful places around to visit (Mani, Ancient Messini, Kalamata, Koroni, Methoni Pylos etc). Plenty of activities to enjoy including fishing, boating, walking, trekking, horse back riding, tennis, cycling and more.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Beautiful apartment with absolutely breathtaking views.
I was very pleased to spend time in the apartment. Excellent host and hostess. Very kind and helpful and showed me everywhere in the community that I would need to visit. Supplied great information on touring . Also took me to the most wonderful cafes in Kalamata. They are the best. Thank you .
So much better than good
The apartment is nailed onto the waterfront; is light and airy with doors to the wide wrap around balcony from the two bedrooms and the living area . Direct sun from dawn to dusk if you want it. Stunning views across the water to the mountains and down the coast - which are particularly satisfying while dining al fresco in the evening
Multi-lingual owners Vassilios and Rosemary are charming and kind. Unexpected and welcome gifts on arrival included chilled drinks (including homemade wine) and later in the week a full plate of freshly cooked stuffers peppers and tomatoes
The town is a short stroll away. It is laid back and has a little bit of everything. On our last night the town square was packed for traditional dancing
The first taverna on the water from the apartment (just past the harbour but which doesn't have a name) is great. Your selected fish will be cooked according to the proprietor's recommendations. Inexpensive. Great value.
This was our first visit to the Peloponnese and it won't be our last
Amazing see and mountain views in a perfect location with the most incredible hosts
The apartment has spectacular views, you can even watch the sunrise from the bed. Rosemary and Vassilis where the most wonderful hosts and made us feel extremely welcome. They provided us with so much useful information about the whole area and showed us around Petalidi town and the neighboring secret beaches. They also provided us with everything we needed for our five month old baby. We came as guests and left as part of the family.
Nice guests deserve good hosts always 😁
Nous avons passé un très bon moment dans cette maison idéalement située à proximité de toutes les commodités mais à l'écart de la foule et du bruit. Les deux propriétaires sont charmants et aux petits soins pour nous. A coup sûr nous reviendrons dans cette maison au confort "haut de gamme" (machine à laver, grande baies vitrées, immense terrasse....). Et si vous avez le bras à peine plus long que la moyenne vous pouvez toucher la mer ;) Famille Gailliègue
Petalidi is located in Messinia, in south-west Pelopponese, 25 kilometers from Kalamata (the local capital), which has an international airport servicing flights from many European cities. It is is a short drive away from the beautiful seaside towns of Koroni, Methoni, and Pylos, famous for their Venetian castles as well as their views and nightlife. Finikounda is another nearby seaside resort with a vibrant nightlife.
For those interested in history, the property is located a 30 minute drive away from Ancient Messini, one of Greece's best preserved ancient cities which has been recently excavated and boasts an ancient theatre and stadium where many cultural events take place in the summer.
Ancient Pylos is a 40 minute drive from the villa, where you can visit the palace and tomb of the famous Homeric hero, Nestor.
Olympia, the original site of the Olympic Games, is approximately 90 minutes drive away.
Across the bay you can visit the very popular area of Mani and the towns of Kardamili, Stoupa, and Aghios Nikolas, as well as the world-famous Diros caves. This is a one-day trip and is highly recommended.
Kalamata is a city of 60,000 people, with a beautful sea-front and many restaurants, tavernas, shops and clubs. In addition to the airport there is also a weekly ferry service to Crete.
The entire region is famous for its high quality olive oil and olives.
