Stone cottage in olive grove:private beach access and splendid sea view

Located in: Pyrgos »
In an idyllic private olive grove by the Ionian Sea, among olive trees, cypresses and pines, lies the restored 1920 Mercouri stone cottage.

The olive trees are cultivated with homeodynamic methods, producing a special and widely awarded organic extra virgin olive oil.

The cottage complies with the standard set by the Greek National Tourist Organisation (EOT) and has the required operating license (0415K92000434802).

The property is situated in Korakohori (Western Peloponnese, Ilia Prefecture), 3.8km from the picturesque harbor of Katakolon and 29km from Ancient Olympia, the birthplace of the ancient Olympic Games.
It is part of the renowned Mercouri Estate with a long tradition in the production of excellent wines and special extra virgin olive oil since 1860.

A visit to the Mercouri winery which is only 1km away from the cottage, to taste some of the best Greek wines, visit the small but very interesting museum and enjoy the surroundings by the sound of the peacocks, is an experience you should not miss!

The cottage has two floors.
On the upper floor there are two bedrooms, one with a double-bed and the other with two single beds. In harmony with the owners’ environmental awareness, both rooms use ceiling fans rather than air-conditioners. The building itself offers adequate thermal insulation, due to its very thick stone walls.
Downstairs is the living room with a sofa that can easily be transformed into a double-bed when needed, a fireplace, a dining table and a fully equipped kitchen.
On the ground floor there is one large bathroom and a smaller bathroom. Free wireless internet access and TV are provided.
A timber terrace is constructed adjacent to the house, with spectacular views to the sea, to the foreshores of Kyllini and on a clear day to the islands of Zakynthos and Kefallonia. Enjoy your wine while the sun slowly sinks into the sea right in front of your eyes!

In the beautiful and peaceful outdoor area, you will find a large wooden dining table, umbrellas and other garden furniture, terrace shower and sink, a well, a pond with waterlilies and a custom-made little tree-house that children will love!

Five minutes walking distance through the property you reach a unique natural balcony to the Ionian Sea and access to a rocky beach with crystal clear water, or you can find your way to the ‘secret steps’ that lead to a small and less rocky beach. Both choices will in most instances ensure privacy.

If big sandy and crowded beaches are more to your liking you can easily access the famous Levendohori beach by car as it is only 3km away. If you feel like driving the Ilia Prefecture offers countless areas which can satisfy various interests of both summer and winter travelers: the medieval castle of Kyllini, the temple of Epicurius Apollo and Ancient Elis, Ancient Olympia (UNESCO World Heritage Sites), the waterfall of Neda, the Foloi forest, the endless beach of Kaiafa are only a few of them.

Amenities within easy reach of the cottage are the following:
The nearest super market and bakery are 2.8km away.
There is a taverna in Korakohori village, only 5 minutes’ drive from the house and several restaurants in Agios Andreas (2.0km away).
Restaurants, coffee shops, tourists’ shops, a pharmacy and an ATM can also be found in Katakolon harbor, (3.8km away), which is also a well-known destination for large cruise ships.
The nearest town is Pyrgos (12km away), where there is also a bus terminal to Athens and other destinations.
The nearest international airport is in Kalamata (120km away).
To reach the property you take the highway Patras-Pyrgos-Ancient Olympia.

The owners of the Mercouri Olive Groves cottage speak English, German, French and Greek.
