Standing directly above the best part of Chrani's main beach, these detached cottages are surrounded by well-tended lawns and pretty gardens, and enjoy views over the Gulf of Messinia to the mountains of Mani beyond.

Each cottage is raised by some ten steps up from the immaculate garden, which contains fig and olive trees. Each is air conditioned and open-plan, comprising a double bedroom, an archway leading through to the living room containing TV (BBC World), a sofabed for a child and a kitchen area (cooking rings), a tiled shower room with wc, and a good-sized front terrace. Furnishings and décor are light, simple, modern and attractive.

There are five cottages in all. Three are front row and boast fine views over the sea to the mountainous Mani. The two rear cottages have side sea and mountain views.

From the gardens 62 steps lead directly down to the beach where, if you patronise the beach-bar there, you may use their sun beds free of charge.

It is only a ten minute walk to Chrani’s selection of restaurants and small shops, either along the beach or via the main road which runs just behind the cottages, but take a torch for late night returns.

The cottages are very well kept, as are the lawns and gardens. Individual units for couples (perhaps with a child) are always in demand, here with the bonus of green natural surroundings, fabulous views and direct proximity to a good beach.

Air conditioning: charged locally at €14 per week if required.
