Kolpos Thea (Bay View) is located near Petalidi in the Messinian County. There are two villas that are a 30 minute drive from Kalamata airport. There are four tavernas and a beautiful sandy beach 5 minutes drive from the villa. A ten minute drive will take you to the fishing village of Petalidi where there are plenty of waterside tavernas, bars and shops. The local tavernas serve delicious fresh home-cooked food at very reasonable prices. A 40 minute drive will take you to the capital Kalamata which has a port, marina and is buzzing with life in the evenings. There are many historic sites in the area within easy reach for a day trip, and we have an exceptionally beautiful area of turquoise lakes and waterfalls only 20 minutes away. The beaches in the area are empty, sandy and breathtakingly lovely Prices for Villa Elya are for 2 people. Add £50 per head for each extra person per week. The villa is a beautiful architect-designed house of 90 sq.m. which sleeps up to 6. The villa is single storey and has split level accommodation including a lovely corner fireplace and unusually large kitchen. It has a wonderful balcony on three sides, partially covered with flowers and vines, a herb garden and shared gardens of about 1/3 of an acre. There is a 10m x 5m swimming pool with sun loungers,barbecue area, and bar serving drinks, cocktails and delicious home-cooked Greek food. The views from the balcony are wonderful, looking down across silver swathes of olive groves to the sea and the mountains beyond. The other villa is completely hidden from view and at the other end of the grounds. Please note that, as the owners live in a basement apartment (with completely private entrance) under Villa Elya, they are always on hand to help and advise. In the price we provide a three course meal with wine and beer in the pool area on your arrival day which is usually a Sunday evening.

Stayed Sunday 02 August 2009
Very nice welcome. Even food was available for the first day and a welcome diner. People are very friendly and helpful. The house was very nice and clean. Everything you need is available. The view from the terrace is lovely. If you can get up early, you can see the sun coming up over the mountains. The swimming pool is brand new – we used it a lot with these temperatures. The owners also organize sailing trips which was also a very nice experience. Our stay in Colpos Thea did for sure exceed our expectations.
Kolpos Thea is a delightful place to stay - the villa is set in the middle of an olive grove with beautiful sea views and lots of interesting wildlife to watch, especially the family of buzzards in the nearby Cypress trees. The villa is very comfortable with a stylish modern interior and a well equipped kitchen, there is a balcony which surrounds the villa with sitting and dining facilities. A barbeque and dining area is also provided around the pool area as are sun loungers. We received an extremely warm welcome from our hosts, Cliff and Quee Hobbs, who provided us with a delicious welcome meal, just what we needed after a long, tiring journey, and some valuable insight into the facilities in local area. They were also very vigilant, without being obtrusive, about tending the garden and pool so that it was always clean and tidy. We took the opportunuty to go out sailing with them on their yatch which was really good fun and provided an extra dimension to an already brilliant holiday. If you are looking for a relaxing, away from it all holiday in a special setting, Kolpos Thea comes highly recommended.
