On the structure
A private villa where peace and beautiful scenery reigns. Indeed the Greek word Iremia, which is the name of the villa, means serenity.
Villa Iremia has 3 double bedrooms all with en-suite, ceiling fans and air-conditioning. These are located on the ground floor and open out onto a terraced veranda that overlooks the pool, garden and sea.
The hallway on this level houses the washing machine, cleaning equipment, first aid kits and a bookshelf filled with holiday reads, guidebooks and local maps for guests use.
A marble staircase leads you up stairs. Here you find a large open planned area which includes a fully equipped kitchen with island, a dining area and lounge area.
The kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, halogen 4 ring hob, fan oven, kettle, deep fat fryer and all the utensils, crockery, glassware one would need.

External stairs also lead up to a terrace and the main door to this level. We call this terrace the breakfast terrace, as it is cool and shady in the mornings. There is a large table and 6 chairs here for outdoor dining. In addition to this each area has doors that lead out onto a front a huge balcony that wraps round the front of the villa.
Outside the kitchen, on the top balcony we have potted up herbs for your use. They include mint, basil, sage, rosemary and oregano. There is a dining table and chairs here too which has wonderful views over Messini Bay the Mani Peninsula and the Taygetos Mountains.
All windows and doors are fitted with insect screens which is great as you can have all the windows and doors open without worrying about any unwanted insects coming indoors.
We are signed up to and committed to a 5-step enhanced cleaning process. This is a set of standards developed in partnership with experts, for the times of COVID-19 and beyond.
Before every stay we have a commitment to:
1. Sanitise surfaces including high-touch surfaces and doorknobs.
2. Use approved products – disinfectants with 70% alcohol or higher.
3. Thoroughly clean – not returning to a room once cleaned and sanitised.
4. Wear a mask and gloves – to help avoid cross-contamination.
5. Wash all linen at a high heat setting.
This is only done in-between guest stays. Cleaning equipment and products are available for you to use during your stay.
At the back of the villa is a carport for parking your car. From here there is a lower front door that leads to the hallway on the ground floor.
Steps from the bedroom veranda lead down to the pool area. The swimming pool is fully automated. the depth of the pool is a level 1.35m, it is 7.6m x 4.4m. There is a pool ladder to give easy entry and exit and pool lighting for night swims. The pool is mosaic tiled. The surrounding pool area is tiled and walled on 2 sides. The wall has lights in so the area can be used when it is dark. There is an outdoor shower and a cupboard containing pool games and inflatables. A railed area guards steps which lead down to the pump room. There are 6 sun loungers, 3 lounger tables, parasols and a table and chairs that seat 4 people. Pool towels are provided. The views are across the Messini bay towards the Mountainous, Mani Peninsula.
Villa Iremia has land amounting to 4200 metre squared. It is extremely peaceful and private. There is an upper, more formal garden and a lower, wilder garden. There are 30 olive trees which provide olive oil and a large eating olive tree as well as several fig trees.
We have spent hours landscaping, dry stone walling, creating seating areas and planting up the garden. It is looking good and is a work in progress. We may need to water plants during your stay.
The villa is a 10 minute drive from the village of Chrani on the periphery of a hamlet called Kakorrema. The Greek word Kakorrema means ‘Bad River’ as the hamlet sits on the side of a gorge at the bottom of which runs the river. Kakorrema has 2 churches. There is an ancient olive tree that is worth a look, a tourkos well and a disused school house.
Chrani village has three tavernas, a cafe bar with free internet, a mini market called Billy’s Place which also has an eatery, a bakery called Bake which is also a cafe, a gift shop and estate agent. The nearest beach is also here.
A 20 minute drive towards Kalamata brings you to the market town of Petalidi. Here you will find a Post Office, Banks with ATMs, a very good pharmacy, bakeries, mini markets, hardware stores and many cafes and tavernas. Every Friday morning, on the seafront there is a very good market where you can buy produce from local farmers; fruit, vegetables, nuts, eggs, olive oil and honey. The market also sells clothes, footwear, baskets and garden plants. We shop here every week for all our fresh produce.
From Chrani in the other direction you will find the nearest petrol station before coming to a village called Agios Andreas. Here you will find the nearest ATM, a bakery, Pharmacy, mini market, cafes and tavernas. It also has a charming harbour. There is a turning on the right which leads to the village of Logga where there is a very good medical Centre.
The next village you come to from Agios Andreas, on the main road, is Nea Koroni. We think this has the best super market and it is where we do our weekly shop. On entering Nea Koroni you will come to a large roundabout/square, the super market is the first right turning and is immediately on your left. Continuing on the main road you will next come to Chariokopia as you come out the village past the Shell garage, at the point where the sign is that tells you you are leaving the village, there is a turning to the left which leads you to a parking area from where you can walk down to a wonderful beach. It has no facilities but is very beautiful.
After Chariokopia you come to the beautiful seaside town of Koroni.
We chose this area to live due to its beauty but also due to its proximity to things to see and do.
