If you have been searching for a combination of a peaceful and quiet atmosphere, a lush garden with lots of privacy, Mediterranean seawater and soft sandy beaches on walking distance, two award golf courses within a 3 minutes drive look no further. You have just found it: Gialova Gardens.
“We recommend to all”
Our stay in Gialova Gardens was really relaxing. The villa was spatious and furnished with taste, with big veranda, located in beautiful garden. Everything we needed was on the spot, even books:) It is very well located, a few minutes walk to the shops and tavernas in Gialova. Very friendly and kind owners. We recommend it to all!
“Would recommend this place if you are looking to chill out and relax”.
We had a great time at this peaceful, private and relaxing place. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. It is a convenient place to stay 5 minutes walk to the local beach and good eating places in Giolova. The olive oil from the land was a lovely gift for our Greek salads with the bottle of wine too. We used the local supermarket that stocked most of the basics needed and local bakery. Having a car is useful for travel further afield, and to the lovely Voidakoilia beach. There is a regular bus service to Pylos, the nearest town. Would recommend this place if you are looking to chill out and relax.
“Looking forward to returning again”
We loved our stay at Gialova – everything at the villa was as it should be – functional, clean, comforting and we felt very welcome at all times. We were with our 5 year old daughter and the cottage was very family friendly. Nearby beaches and attractions kept us busy at all times…. Sjoerd was a great host – always at hand and helpful when we needed something. He provided us with all the information we needed on the region. All in all – we were very happy and look forward to returning again!
“This place looks way better than on the photos”
This place looks way better than on the photos. The villa is surrounded by flowers. It is spacious and very clean. The bathroom is pretty small and it’s not that easy to get in into the shower but it’s new and clean. Two spacious bedrooms and huge living room with the kitchen. No problem with the hot water, cooking or anything else. You can find sun beds on the terrace, and the hammock so you easily can enjoy the day there. The parking spot is right in front of the house. Even though there are a few bungalows next to each other, you cant’ really see the neighbors so it feels like you are alone there. If you want to go out, it takes only 5-10 min to get to the seaside where you can find many shops, restaurants and bars. Good communication and we felt very welcomed. Lovely place! You are going to enjoy it.
“Wonderful Villa on the west coast of the Peloponnes”
We had the opportunity to stay at Villa Andrea for a week in November 2015. The property is wonderful. This is a great location and close to so many beautiful beaches. Pilos, Methoni and Ancient Messeni are a sort distance. This is a perfect location to visit the western Peloponnes. The villa is very comfortable. Both bedrooms are very airy with nice windows with screens and very comfortable beds and block out shutters. The bedrooms open to a balcony and this was the perfect place to have breakfast each morning. The view is just spectacular with a panoramic view of Navarino Bay. It is breathtaking. It was difficult to tear ourselves away from it. The first floor is much larger than appears in the pictures and opens to another balcony. The property is surrounded by flowers, fruit and an olive grove. The owner, Sjoerd and his wife were very welcoming and even dropped off a delicious bottle of fresh olive oil freshly pressed from their orchard. Although the Villa is part of a complex, it is very private and gives the feel of staying on your own private property. The villa is set back from the road, so there is no road noise. We would not hesitate to stay again and were very sad to have to leave.
“Fantastic sea views over the Navarino Bay”
We spent a week at the Villa Andrea and there we felt right at home. The villa is easily on the hillside and has a fantastic view from all terraces on three different levels. The location is wonderful & quiet but still you can easily walk to reach the restaurant strip of Gialova. A rental car is highly recommended, so you can go to Pylos, to Voidokilia, the castle etc. Welcome, keys etc everything worked smoothly. We would definitely come back!
“Never been in such a friendly, relaxing place before”
I stayed in Villa Andrea with some friends, I have a busy job in Holland, so was looking forward to some time to relax. Now it feels like I wasn’t stressed out ever before! Wow. A stunning view over the sea, golfcourse nearby, proper apartment. It has everything you need for a perfect holiday. Oh and it was amazing how friendly the staff is. The roof top terrace is a place you must experience at night to watch the trillion stars…. Beaches are beautiful as well.
“Excellent place for holiday – quiet and charming”
We had a very pleasant stay at Bungalow Suze in Gialova. What a lovely place to be:
– nice, sweet and comfortable bungalow; and had all the amenities we needed, while everything was clean and well maintained.
– a beautiful garden with lots of privacy
– nearby the beach and friendly restaurants
Overall, a great place to stay, we will definitely return to Bungalow Suze when we are in Gialova again!
“Beautiful, idyllic greek bungalow with beautiful garden”
Next to the picturesque coast of Gialova we had a fantastic, relaxing stay with our two kids in Villa Andrea. All communication with the owner was quick, friendly and helpful. After arriving the place looked even better than on the photos. So much space and I especially was pleased what a clean and well maintained house with new furniture, beds etc it was. Besides that, we loved the closeness to the beach and the beautiful gardens where we spent a more than relaxing week. The environment is also very idyllic, we visited waterfalls, boottrips and loved the closeby town Pylos for a greek coffee on a terrace.
“The perfect holiday location”
We had a fabulous holiday in Gialova Gardens and the Bungalow suited our needs perfectly. Arjan was a charming and helpful host and no request was a problem – he dealt with it quickly and nothing was too much trouble. The Bungalow itself was fully equipped with everything we needed, and a short walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. It is private and yet near everything! Would highly recommend it and looking forward to a return visit one day!
