We had an excellent stay in Chamaloni and for sure we'll come back.
The region, Messenia, is very nice and interesting, with beautiful beaches (finikounta, voidokilia, etc.), ancient ruins, etc. It is a "hidden gem" in the Peloponnese, far less crowdy than other more mass-touristic places.
The position of Chamaloni is excellent: on top of the hill, with beautiful view on the valey and sea and islands.
There are 3 cottages, each with 2 independent apartments: in total 6 apartments, 5 small (45m2) and one big (67m2).
We stayed in the big apartment and it is just perfect: charming, cosy furniture, comfortable, air conditioned everywhere, bathroom like a 5* hotel, big veranda with breath-taking view .. just perfect.
But what really makes Chamaloni experience unforgettable are the hosts.
Evgenia prepares outstanding and authentic hellenic food for dinner, made with fresh products from the farm. (the apartments have a perfect and functional kitchen, but Evgenia dinners under the pergola are so great ....)
Georgia and her husband are very nice, they can give you very nice tips and make you feel like you were invited by a very old friend ...
All in all, this is just the perfect place to be, and we warmly recommend it to anybody that loves calm, nature and authenticity, far from noise , consumer society and mass-tourism.
Chamaloni cottages are nestled amongst the olive groves with sweeping views of the sea. They are run by a warm and hospitable couple, Evgenia and Lefteris, who embrace you like family. It is their mission to ensure that their guests experience all the delights of their farm as well as the region of Messinia. Their property is perfect for a family farm stay or a romantic getaway.
The cottages are delightfully furnished and comfortable. The fireplace creates a warm and cosy atmosphere for the cooler months and the balconies with the sea views are perfect for summer.
Breakfast includes a generous tray of homemade treats and local produce. It is also worth trying Evgenia's home cooked traditional meals.
Chamaloni cottages provide the perfect accommodation and base to explore the beautiful region of Messinia.
Beautiful cottages, tastefully decorated, clean and spacious with a fully equipped kitchen, a perfect wifi, approx 6 kms from the center of Foinikounta.
Condos are located in the village of Yamia, on a hilltop with a spectacular view of the surrounding hills and the sea. Easily accessible, although away from the (over) touristic part of Foinikounta.
They are run by Evgenia and Lefteris who realize the greek hospitality at its best. Prompt to give you directions around the area, suggest beautiful beaches and taverns, they welcome you with water, olive oil and handmade marmelade in the cottages.
Go for it without a second thought !!!
