There are three small villas in this location, all with a very similar layout. We stayed in the three-bedroom Villa Pilos. The villas are a little way off the road up a narrow private drive and surrounded by olive trees. A sharp hairpin bend in the drive means that access to the top two villas would be tricky with a large car. The location is very peaceful and private but still only a very short drive from Gialova’s beachfront and tavernas. The balcony provides a lovely place to eat, with views down to Navarino Bay. The kitchen was adequately resourced for a group of two or four but would not have had sufficient utensils for six people. The villa is clearly designed for adult guests and is really not suitable for small children owing to the steps and relatively deep pool. We appreciated the maid service which was provided every three days and the pool was checked regularly early in the morning. The wifi was good and a minor problem with it was fixed within hours. The villas offer access to excellent local beaches, including the famous Voidokilia beach. There is a good, small, local supermarket and there are many interesting historical sites in the area including Nestor’s Palace and the excellent NeoKastro in Pylos. For those interested in wildlife, the Gialova lagoon is very close. This is one of the most important wetlands in Europe, with hundreds of migratory birds stopping there in spring and in autumn. In summary we had a lovely holiday in Villa Pilos and would certainly recommend it to others.

We had wanted an off-the-beaten track holiday, and this is exactly what we experienced. Although there are three villas in close proximity none of the houses are overlooked and the olive trees shield any noise and offer great seclusion. We stayed in the 2-bedroom villa, although set on a slope and looking like a house all the rooms were on one-level. The villa was spotlessly clean and very well-equipped. The iron was missing but Yiannis, the owner, bought a new one the day it was mentioned. We cannot praise the location enough as the area has so much to offer. A car is essential. There are many beaches to suit all tastes whether secluded, beach bar or sun-loungers with tavernas behind serving very good Greek cuisine. Magnificent waterfalls and cultural places to visit in addition to nearby towns offering a great variety. We stayed for three weeks and were never bored. The owner also has Eleonas Holiday Village which we visited, and the accommodation there too looks excellent and is within walking distance to Gialova. Gialova is a wonderful place to stay and we shall return without doubt

we stayed in a two bed villa up in the hills above Gialova. There was 3 separate villas. the villa was very private. the beds were really comfortable. The villa was very well equipped and clean but no washing machine. Would love to go back. lovely walk across the road to a waterfall and a half an hour walk to golden beach and 10 minutes to local supermarket

We stayed in one of three villas (Villa Pylos) located up a small hill with a lovely view of the sea and mountains. Located close to each other but with a degree of privacy. Ours had three bedrooms (2 doubles, 1 twin) and 2 bathrooms (1 ensuite). Villa was clean although there were a number of cobwebs in the beams. Kitchen had a good selection of crockery / cutlery. Washing up liquid provided but no plug. Dishwasher and washing machine but no tablets / powder. Rooms clean and airy. Pool area clean with 5 solid wooden beds / mattresses and 2 umbrellas. Some olive trees / palms provided shade and privacy. Some areas of the villa looked tired - sunbed mattresses had dark spots, cracked glass cupboard door in kitchen, couple of light bulbs had blown, glass shelves in main bathroom chipped, tablecloth stained. The main bathroom smelled bad most days. Cleaners due twice a week. They came Thu and Sun so during our 2-week stay they cleaned 3 times (we arrived / departed Sun). Light clean (all floors, emptied bins and new sheets / towels). A book on things to do in the local area would be useful with emergency numbers, nearest pharmacy, restaurant, supermarket, petrol station etc. The handyman turns up as and when. Disconcerting when you're sunbathing and he suddenly appears at the top of the steps linking the top and bottom villas. Wifi was sporadic. Plenty of places in Gialova offer free wifi. Less than 10 mins by car to restaurants / shops in Gialova. Booking online was easy and directions to property (Eleonas Holiday Houses to collect the keys) was spot on.

Stayed there 2 weeks with our 3 children this summer. Villas are juste perfect for our small family, an extra mattress was added by the owner for our youngest child. We had a wonderful time. Location is ideal for beaches and visits around Pylos, Methoni, Olympia, and even Mystras a couple hour of drive though. Swimming pool is just amazong when you get back from the beach. Gialova is only a couple minutes drive for restaurants.
