Swallows' Song: a house for nature lovers between the sea and mountains

Located in: Rigklia
Our house sits between the foothills of the Taygetos mountains and the sea and is surrounded by olive groves. It is 650 m from the seashore, and a 10 minute walk through the olives to two lovely beaches: Pantazi beach which is sandy, and a neighboring pebbly beach. Pantazi has a quiet beachside cafe and the other beach has a nice restaurant overlooking it. The friendly village of Agios Nikolaos, where the writer Nikos Kazantzakis once lived with Zorba, is a 10 -15 minute walk from the house. You can walk or cycle there to get fresh bread in the morning and there are some lovely eating places and cafes. Stoupa with its happy beaches and holiday makers and charming Kardamyli are 5 and 15 minutes by car; they are on the same road that winds south through the stunningly rugged and beautiful inner Mani. Kalamata is about 45 minutes away by car. The impressive ancient site of Messinia is about 1hr and 15 minutes away.
There are 2 paths to hillside villages that start close to the house. (There are walking maps on the fireplace mantel) These include sections of kaldymeria, the narrow paths built of stone that for centuries were the only way between villages. There are many more trails within a 5 -15 minute drive. On these walks you stumble across tiny churches filled with beautiful Byzantine wall paintings or caves where people lived after Mystras fell to the Ottomans or friendly horses, sheep, chickens, cows or unfriendly (hobbled) bulls and all kinds of wildlife! You can end your hike with a Greek coffee, bread cheese and olives at a little village cafe. It is a perfect place for nature lovers and naturalists, lovers of history, walkers/runners/swimmers and romantics. In the spring the olive groves and pathways are full of wildflowers and in the summer the smell of dried wild herbs is everywhere and swallows fly through the arches of the porch.

One bedroom has a European King sized bed and the other, 2 single beds. Both bedrooms have balconies. There are also 2 single beds/couches in the living room. Both bathrooms have showers. The larger bathroom (not pictured) also has a washing machine. The bedrooms have air-conditioning and there are also ceiling fans and window screens there and downstairs. There is a fireplace in the living room and french doors to a terrace. There is a fully outfitted full sized kitchen with a toaster, electric kettle and french press. There is wifi and a sound system you can plug your phone into. There are art supplies, Scrabble, maps and some books. There is a barbecue in the garden and firewood stored next to the house. There are 2 bicycles which you can use on the Ag. Nik. to Stoupa bike path. In the nearby villages you can rent bicycles, kayaks and even go horse riding.

Andreas and Dorina who take care of the house will be nearby to help you in any way they can. Hopefully, everything you need for your beautiful adventures is provided!
