Photos and Description of this Pilos holiday apartment
2 bedrooms sleeps 2 adults and 2-3 children

Arkady apartment is set in a hillside olive grove, with panoramic views, just outside the pretty village of Gialova. Even in the high season the beach is uncrowded and you can eat with the locals nearby or join visitors in the Gialova restaurants. The apartment has everything you expect in high quality, self contained holiday accommodation.

At our local beach, a 10 minute walk away, our local Greek Taverna serves inexpensive traditional dishes and home-made wine. In Gialova village is a diverse selection of restaurants and even two small bars.

A little further on is Golden Beach with 3km more of safe and sandy beach. Take a picnic and enjoy a wonderful adventure visiting Palio Kastro ( the old castle) on the cliff above. On the other side is is the dark cave where King Nestor kept his livestock and semi-circular Voidikilia beach, voted one of the top ten beaches in the world by the New York Times in 2010. Because of UNESCO status it remains undeveloped and uncrowded.

If you rent a small boat for the day you can explore the islands, go snorkelling and find the tiny 'secret beach' of Sphacteria. On the island is a wooden church built by the Russians to commemorate the Battle of Navarino.

The tiny village of Gialova has a small supermarket and several shops. If you prefer not to to drive you can take one of our bicycles and make the trip in 5 minutes. We provide a help yourself fridge with essentials like mild and bread if you prefer to sunbathe on your private terrace in the olive grove instead.

The area around has many attractions including Nestor's Palace, Ancient Olympia,The Temple of Apollo Epicureus at Bassae, Ancient Messini and Methoni Castle, once known as 'The Eyes Of Venice' for it's strategic importance.

The small town of Pylos is 5km from Arkady apartment and is one of the most beautiful old towns in the Peloponnese.

We are sheltered from the open sea by the island of Sphacteria, where the Athenians finally defeated the Spartans in 425bc and the Spartans camped on our beach !

This area is far enough from Athens to be still off the beaten track. People that come here enjoy a peaceful, unspoilt, relaxed atmosphere and the friendly rural community maintains its identity and customs.

Arkady apartment is family owned and independent. We look forward to welcoming you here for a memorable holiday.

It's a 10 min walk to the warm, crystal-clear waters of The Ionian Sea and to our local taverna, Niko's. Home-cooked traditional food, BIG Greek salads and his own wine served by the jug, make it a favorite among locals and visitors alike. All are made welcome.

Gialova remains relatively not touristic considering its incredible natural beauty, historical and mythical significance and proximity to astounding archaeological sites. Here you cannot escape the voice of Homer drawing you back to ancient times - looking out to sea from Nestor's Palace and imagining the wise King of this region returning from Troy, brimming with ideas of peace and agricultural plenty for all; his legacy is still apparent today; 90% of all organic farming takes place in the Peloponnese. Nestor's city is rumored to lie under the sands of Voidokilia beach, perhaps the most beautiful beach in Europe. With the lagoon behind and Golden Beach beyond it forms a huge conservation area.

What a lovely fortnight that was - thanks for all the help, advice, delicious bread and those life-saving cheese sandwiches on the day we left (just when we were completely in the middle of nowhere everyone suddenly got very hungry!) . We changed plans on the way to Athens and did Mycenae instead, so Ancient Messini is a treat for next time.

Gialova gave us exactly what we wanted. A restful break away from the crowds in a beautiful and fascinating part of Greece, with amazing food straight out of the sea and off the land. And the fact that Greeks clearly go there on their holiday too is a really good sign.

Thanks again. You live in a lovely place!
