We moved to Greece with our 3 kids in 2005. We have built a small tourist accommodation business and our family home, within a 2 acre olive grove facing the sea, to get 'back to our roots'.Living and working closer to the flora and forna of the Mediterranean in a wild and rugged environment, and offering our children an alternative experience.

After the adventures, mishaps and wonders of the initial couple of years, we are now settled into our seaside village life.

We take a pride in cultivating and caring for our 200 majestic olive trees. Pruning and shaping the form for optimum health.

The fruits are harvested by the whole family in late November and all the local groves are a whirl of activity. We bag up the olives and take them to the local press where we enjoy the lively banter with the other farmers. The cold press extraction produces a liquid gold extra virgin oil that is second to none!

Simon purchased this villa in 2004

We have developed a love for this unspoilt corner of Europe and take great pleasure in hosting guests from all over the world. We intend to help facilitate you enjoying a great holiday in this truly wonderful area which has something to offer all ages.We live onsite and are available for any advise or recommendations. It is of the utmost importance that we provide our guests privacy and quiet in a safe and clean environment, so they have the possibility to enjoy a memorable holiday.

All our farming activities from: harvesting, feeding and maintaining our 200 olive trees, vegetable garden and fruit orchards incorporate organic and permaculture methods, helping in maintaing healthy soil and minimize water usage. All garden plants are endemic and selected to have minimal water requirements and are watered using a drip system, again conserving water wherever possible. Our chickens are free range and aid us in sharing the kitchen waste with our compost bin as well as providing enormous tasty eggs. As often as possible we use recycled materials for outside building projects ( greenhouses, pergolas, raised vegetable beds, walls, paths, animal shelters, tree houses etc) often combed from beaches when storms have delivered timbers. We have restored and converted a stone store room to form the master bedroom of one house using local methods, craftsmen and materials. Our swimming pool incorporates the most energy efficient filter system and liner. Thus enabling us to keep her filled with water even in winter and only having to refresh the water by a third instead of 100% every spring.

Wonderful cottage in a beautiful area

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 24/09/2009
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2009
We stayed in the Seabreeze Villa for a week in early July. The weather could not have been better. The Villa was perfect for our family of four. The pool is delightful and has a stunning view to the sea. We used it mainly in the mornings and evenings. During the day, we enjoyed the spectacular beaches at Gialova and Kaloni. (There are other nice beaches closer to the house, but these were the best.) Our hosts, who live on the property, were helpful, friendly, but unobtrusive. We highly recommend this Villa.

Owner's Response: Hi Carter and family. Thanks for the review and we are very happy you enjoyed the facilities and what the area has to offer so much.

Fantastic holiday at Seabreeze

Had a wonderful stay at Seabreeze in August/September. The villa was perfect for our family of four being set in an idyllic Olive grove with plenty for the children to do, views everywhere and a great pool. Simon and Idit were really welcoming and knowledgeable about the area which is beautiful. We really enjoyed our time in Methoni and the other local towns. Would heartily recommend and hope to return.
Owner's Response: Hi Tim and family and thank you for your comments. We are always glad that our guests and their children make use of the facilities and area to enjoy their time here to the max. Hope to welcome you back, Regards Simon

Idyllic olive grove seaside break

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 03/09/2012
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2012
We had a great week at Sea Breeze this August. The property is in the middle of an idyllic olive grove with fantastic views and chirping cicadas we really felt that we had escaped! The villa had everything we needed and was comfortable and clean -We were a bit concerned about the heat before we got there but it was breezy with shade to be found at any time of day and gentle air con and a dip in the pool when the August heat got too much.

The provisions on the first day were a great help and Simon and Idit made sure we had a great week from advice on how to get there to with recommendations and directions to out of the way shady beaches and great local food. Our 2 boys loved the pool, hammocks and tree houses dotted about as well as snorkelling and eating as much as they could..

We would definitely recommend a stay here - Methoni is a small quiet town and has the feel of a village that has a bit of a life beyond the summer tourist season. We hope to get back soon!
Owner's Response: Hi Cathy and boys. Great to hear your whole family reveled in all that our site and area has to offer. We welcome city dwellers that can enjoy the rural rustic charm of Methoni and its surroundings. We hope to welcome you back soon, All the best Simon and Idit x
