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. seabreezegr.com

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 Messinia

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. seabreezegr.com.

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 manager

Situation authentique, au calme, sans horde de touristes, loin des destinations "surfaites" de la Grèce.. Idéal pour se reposer, et prendre le temps de vivre. Piscine très sympathique, vue superbe. Idit et Simon sont charmants, sachant rester à l'écoute et à l'écart des locataires.

Great accommodation in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying at Seabreeze. Very comfortable accommodation set in a tranquil olive grove. Our family of 4 enjoyed the facilities, the pool and the lovely views. Our hosts were most helpful with useful tips to secret beaches and recommended tavernas, thank you. We would recommend this property and surrounding area for anyone who would like to stay in a quiet part of Greece away from the tourist crowds. With plenty to explore in the local area and also a great setting to relax on the lazy days.

Lovely cottages in an olive grove

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time, two families staying in the two villas. The views from the property are superb, and we thoroughly enjoyed our days exploring Messenia: wild beaches all to ourselves, excellent meals, ruined forts. Simon and Idit were friendly and welcoming.

A week in gorgeous Methoni

  • 5 of 5

I got much more than I had hoped for from this week away in Methoni staying at Seabreeze. The whole area is very beautiful with fab beaches and brilliant clear blue seas. The villa we stayed in at Seabreeze was simple and perfect - set in amongst a wonderful organic olive tree grove I found the whole experience deeply peaceful and grounding. Simon, Idit and their children, and lovely animals were very warm and welcoming. I spent whole days just hanging out near the house when my friends went exploring because it was that lovely and relaxing! All I can say is I really hope to return soon. Going the end of season also added to the relaxed vibe of the area too. I highly recommend it :)

It was a memorable stay in Methoni!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time in this part of Greece, and we were not disappointed! Simon and Idit were very helpful hosts and even provided a welcome package of their own produce. The location of the villa, up on the side of the mountain, offered wonderful views of Methoni village and the sea, and the whole surrounding landscape. We could have chosen to stay in a hotel, but we wanted an authentic, village life experience. The accommodations were adequate, and everything was in working order. Our hosts provided plenty of information for us to experience and enjoy all that this region has to offer. Our children enjoyed afternoons in the pool, and star gazing at night. We tried every beach that was recommended, and also had dinners at the many restaurants that were suggested. Overall, we were very happy with our choice and feel lucky to have experienced Methoni!
