“My exchange with George and Elisa was the best vacation I\'ve ever had and it was all thanks to their generosity and their beautiful home in Kalamata. George is in the bike tour business and gave me a lot of ideas for places to visit in the Peloponnese, the southern part of Greece where Kalamata sits. The ancient Messine archeaological site must not be missed. Their house is on the outskirts of Kalamata center in a friendly neighborhood; people stopped by to check in that we were OK and I was invited over to someone\'s house next door for Greek wine and cucumbers. The language barrier didn\'t prevent us from feeling welcomed. Their house is a short, peaceful stroll through olive and orange trees to the beach. I often took the bike path along the beach to the city center, which has a lovely historic area and a green market that rivals those in Manhattan. Their home is spacious with a lovely garden. We were in good communication and watched each others cats. We met for coffee upon my return and hope we remain friends.”

Where is it?
Our home is located in a peaceful neighborhood in the outskirts of Kalamata. Our neighbors are all wonderful people that would make any guest feel at home and well cared for. Kalamata's beachfront is only one kilometer away and is easily accessible by a secondary road/path (it makes a great walk or bike ride). The center of Kalamata is 3 km away and is easily accessible by local bus (the nearest bus stop is practically adjacent to our home). Our location makes a great base for exploring the Southern Peloponnese, including attractions like Sparta/Mystras, the Mani Peninsula, Ancient Messini. Bikes (of all types and sizes) are available to our guests.
Kalamata and the nearby attractions of the Southern Peloponnese are becoming the new big destination of Greece with thousands of visitors arriving weekly especially during the summer months. However our winters are mild and wonderful!
