About Simon

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

Why Simon chose Methoni

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine. La maison est située dans un champs d''oliviers loin de la route. L''autre location est suffisamment éloignée et le partage de la piscine se fait en bonne intelligence. De très belles plages à proximité. La visite du château de Methoni est très agréable. Celle de Pylos (11 Kms) et la baie à proximité sont superbes. Le site de l''ancienne Messene est à ne pas manquer surtout si l''on a pas le temps de visiter Olympie. Simon et son épouse sont des gens très agréables et discrets. A ne pas manquer leur huile d''olives pour prolonger ses vacances à son retour."

Wonderful cottage in a beautiful area

  • 5 out of 5
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.

Wunderschöne Tage und ein entspannter Urlaub

  • 4 out of 5
Wir waren im Mai 2014 mit unsere Tochter (3) vor Ort und haben diese Tage sehr genossen. Die Villas sind sehr schön und sauber. Alles was man brauchte war vorhanden. Der Ausblick ist grandios. Simon und Idit sind sehr aufmerksame und freundliche Gastgeber, die immer gerne helfend zur Seite standen. Unsere Tochter hatte viel Spaß beim Hühner füttern oder Möhren pflücken. Der Pool ist ein Traum. Die gesamte Anlage mit den vielen Olivenbäumen IST eine Oase der Ruhe und Entspannung... Wir würden noch einmal dieses Haus buchen...
Danke Simon und Idit... P.S. Liebe Grüße an Alice, den Hund (der uns viel Freude bereitet hat)

Unsere Erwartungen wurden voll erfüllt

  • 4 out of 5
Das Ferienhaus liegt in einem idyllischen Olivenhain und ermöglicht einen sehr ruhigen und entspannten Urlaub. Gerade für Kinder ist sehr viel Platz zum Spielen vorhanden. Die Lage bietet sehr schöne Ausblicke auf Methoni, das Meer und die Landschaft. In der Nähe befinden sich sehr schöne, auch gut bewirtschaftete Strände. Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet. Simon und Idit waren für uns sehr gute Gastgeber und wir werden bestimmt noch einmal wiederkommen.

Fantastic holiday at Seabreeze

  • 5 out of 5
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.
