The house was built in 1985 to host friends and family during summertime. Since they always love to offer their hospitality, the hosts have renovated the old building creating a place for travelers passing by to visit this part of Messinia.
Surrounded by a large yard of 4.000 m2 with an access to a secluded rocky beach and a splendid view to the sea, Erythea is an independent, self-catering apartment with a specific arrangement that maintains its privacy. It is situated in a sparsely-populated area, providing peaceful atmosphere and tranquility complemented by the mesmerizing sound of the sea.
It is face north-west with a view of the sunset at the sea. Its positioning and orientation is designed bioclimatically to take advantage of the solar gain, the day lighting and the sea breeze that keeps the interior cool.
The interior is 40 m2, decorated in a simple colorful style creating a warm and cozy atmosphere, while for the exterior earthy colors and natural local materials have been used.
The apartment features a double bedroom and a separate living room with a twin bed, a pull-out bed, and a sofa bed. The open kitchen is fully equipped with electric cooker, fridge and all necessary utensils to cook a proper meal. There is one bathroom with shower and a hairdryer, as well as outdoor showers for the guests to use. The living room opens to a large private balcony, with a dining table and staircases with direct access to the yard, which enjoys views to the sea and the sunset. The bedroom facing south-east opens to a balcony on the opposite site. In front, there is parking space right outside the yard entrance.
The house disposes of a yard with garden spots and patios with outdoor furniture, quiet places to enjoy your sun bath and the fresh sea breeze. There is a children’s playground area with a slide and swings. In the future, we plan to dedicate more space to natural playgrounds where children and adults can play and interact together and with their surroundings. A BBQ area with a dining table is for the houses to use and a wood oven attached at the back of the reception room, is also for the guests’ use.
We try to grow our family vegetable garden almost every year, so you will have the opportunity to pick and try the delicious resources of the earth, from vegetables to natural sea salt, as well as our own olive oil or to taste sea-fresh fish.
Since our family lives near at hand, while from June till October next to the apartments, please expect our assistance with anything you might need during your stay, from key exchanges, to repairs, and anything in between.
