The Sound of the Sea

Peloponnese

Imagine a serene bay with the gentle contours of small islands rising from the turquoise waters, a long beach stretching along a perfectly peaceful shoreline, a pretty garden with plumes of pink from the Yulibrissim trees stroking the waves and the loveliest of houses - this is The Sound of the Sea.

View Gallery

The Sound of the sea is a delightful villa situated right next to the sea on the eastern coast of the Peloponnese. This peaceful villa sleeps 4-5 guests in two bedrooms with two bathrooms and provides a wonderful setting for a self catering holiday villa in Greece.

The villa stands only metres from the shoreline, its long and spacious veranda running the length of the house. Here there are so many lovely places to relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the bay against the dazzling colours of the garden or to slip into the sea for a refreshing dip or simply to fish from the veranda and later to eat your catch at the huge marble table whilst watching the sun set over the many small islands.

The villa inside is as appealing as its surroundings. The ground floor has a beautiful living room with lovely views of the bay. A large archway leads to the spacious kitchen with elegant dining table for eight. The living room has a double height ceiling with a gallery running around three sides of its upper level giving a tremendous feeling of light and space. On this level, there is a very pretty bathroom with WC and shower with beautifully detailed mosaic tiles in colours reflecting the sea.

An open tread staircase leads to the upper level which has beautiful carved wooden floors in soft blonde wood and casement windows opening out onto the view of the bay. A lovely feature of the first double bedroom (with king-size bed) is the small window that is set at just the perfect height to gaze out over the bay from the comfortable bed. With the sound of the waves outside the window, you could almost imagine that you were gazing out of the port hole of a boat. The romantic gallery has a double bed screened off from a single bed with lovely views of the bay. These two bedrooms share a stylish bathroom with mosaic tiling in creams and beiges.

The villa is decorated beautifully throughout with many subtle, artistic touches, pretty rugs and kilims, comfortable sofas, atmospheric lamps and always the sound of the sea. There is air-conditioning throughout and WIFI internet. For families with small children the villa is well equipped with baby cot and high chair, blender, baby bath and stair-gate.

The property is very private including the beaches and coves below the house and there is a private mooring and small jetty just below the veranda where a boat can be tied. Surrounding the villa is a low fence so that children can play safely without running straight out to the sea and in front there is a small lawn with grass. On the terrace is the large marble table with in-built benches and cushions seating at least 12 guests. To the side of the veranda is the barbecue area with in-built barbecue and sink conveniently placed next to the kitchen door. There are also teak sun loungers and a coffee area shaded by an umbrella to enjoy the views out over the sea.

There is a long beach a few minutes walk from the villa which is usually quiet and within a 5 minute walk in the opposite direction is an excellent taverna on the sea-shore which is open daily during the main part of the season and at weekends at other times. The traditional village of Didima with shops and tavernas set in the hills above Salandi is about 10 mins drive away and there are various pretty fishing villages within a 15 - 20 min drive.

The area of Porto Heli is one of the little secrets of Greece. It is a beautiful part of the Peloponnese with many private islands owned by the elite of Greece and as such the local towns with their 18th and 19th Century mansions and their marinas lined with yachts offer a more exclusive selection of places to dine or shop.  

The Sound of the Sea is in the perfect location to enjoy solitude, simplicity and quiet as well as the more harmonious... sound of the sea.

Reviews

Lipworth arrived 11 October 2020

We loved our trip. Sound of the Sea was exceptional! If it was possible we would have liked to stay for a month. The views, the sunsets and the sea right in front of us were delightful. The owners were also really friendly and left fruit and bread and wine and visited to drop in a lovely parting gift.

Ulrich R. arrived 27 September 2020

Once again, we had a wonderful stay at this so peaceful and idyllic locations, hard to beat! We could still swim every day, the evening got a little bit cooler though in the second week. The owners are two superb and so nice persons.

Marisa L. arrived 29 August 2020

Thank you so much for organizing this wonderful Greek holiday for us! We are already on our way back to Germany, much too early, I know.... We deeply hope to be back soon, we had a magical time. Please send our regards and thanks to Sophia and Spiros for sharing their little paradise!!

Katherine S. arrived 15th Oct 2019

We had an excellent holiday at Sound of the Sea, it is a perfect villa for switching off and not doing very much which is what we were after. The villa is a gem, the layout lovely, especially the access to the water for our children being so close.
The welcome from the owners was also excellent, they left some very nice touches and we appreciate that using a company like yourselves will ensure a certain quality in terms of towels, toiletry products, etc. that made our stay simple.
The communication from yourselves at all stages was excellent, the information for the locality great and the help with regards directions also really good.
We have recommended you to several of our friends already who asked about where we went. We would happily be repeat customers if the opportunity arose.
The villa owners were really helpful, they handed us a really lovely
pack on leaving, the touches like this made the stay memorable.

Kind regards,

Katherine S.

 

Mary C. arrived 14th Sept 2019

Ann H. arrived 9th Sept 2017

We absolutely loved Sound of the Sea. It could not have been more
perfect for us.

The location is so extraordinary and the house so well equipped.
Spiros and Sophia are the most generous and hospitable of hosts.

We did very very little except stare at or swim in the sea. Especially loved the night lights allowing for moonlit swims. The view of the
milky way from the sea will stay with me forever. As will the azure dart of the hummingbird across the terrace.
We tend not to return to holiday homes, preferring to have fresh
adventures, but we will make an exception for this wonderful place as
it is so very very special.

Thanks so much. We will return again another year.

Best wishes,
Ann

Federica G. arrived 6th Aug 2016

This is just to let you know how happy we are to be at Sound of the Sea. Sofia is an exceptional host - she left eggs and vegetables and water and wine, beer, drinks... There is hardly anything left to buy!
The property is immaculate, cured in every single detail, I cannot find a single thing that is less than top level!
I have stayed here once before but I am once again impressed and I feel the need to tell you!

Federica

 

Kate F. arrived 30th July 2016

We've had a wonderful week here....so relaxing....the house and area have really grown on us after initially pining for Hydra!
Absolutely perfect.
Ermioni by far the nicest place to eat and wander.
A day out in Nafplion was well worth it!
Such a depressing eyesore on arrival and yet our girls thought exploring it was a highlight.
We have had a great holiday and cant thank you enough
for your help and support throughout.

Kate Frood

 

Nicholas L. arrived 10th July 2016

We really enjoyed the villa. I am sure we will book again in the coming years. It was fantastic to swim in the sea by your doorstep plus the villa had all we needed for a small young family. Special thanks to Sophia providing milk, eggs, bread etc when we arrived after a long drive from Athens with hungry and tired children!

KR..Nic

 

Ben B. arrived 28th May 2016

Thank you so much for a wonderful spring week at
"The Sound of the Sea".
It's an enchanting place and we loved every moment with 3 teens preparing for exams. There was much learning at the home with homework. What a wonderful place to revisit. We will be back we hope very soon.

With thanks,
Jenny, Ben, Jessie and Dave

Camilla M. arrived 10th Aug 2015

What a wonderful 3 weeks in Greece we have had - thank you so much for always being so responsive, helpful, and ultimately for helping us find those idyllic properties in both the Peloponnese and Kefalonia.
We have been singing the praises of PGV so I hope you will get some more enquiries.
SOTS hit about every wish list I have, and I am almost certain we would like to return there, but we are also keen to continue to
Explore Greece, and have adventures with our children, so I would also like to see what else is out there, maybe we can combine SOTS with somewhere else?
We loved how remote SOTS felt, and yet so comfortable.
Both properties had that rustic feel, which we loved, yet very
comfortable with a King sized bed for us (my husband is tall).
We felt so relaxed in SOTS, and I think part of the appeal was not
having to go anywhere - the sea was a few steps away, so no decision to pack up the children's things and go off to a beach, and also a taverna was 5 minutes walk away if we did decide to have a meal out - very easy and relaxed.
I am quite a keen swimmer, and what I loved almost the most about
Greece is your gorgeous sea - the warmth and clear clear water. I swam every morning in SOTS, and from our beach at Amongst the Olives. For me, easy, walking access to a beach to swim in is essential.
For the children, they also like a pool, or sea which has a shallow
area to swim in (as 2 are not confident swimmers and get a little scared when the stones are big / urchins are lurking / or there's anything like water grasses underfoot!! They are not particularly brave!).
We found the walk to the private beach in Amongst the Olives too far for them, and also they did not like the bigger pebbles on the beach there for some strange reason they preferred the beach at Foki bay for instance, which has more of a swimming pool effect if you know what i mean.
So, a villa with a pool for them (especially if we took SOTS for part of the holiday, so allowing a change), or a beach a few steps away.
It is nice to have a large shaded area for them to play in and explore
the huge veranda at SOTS was ideal - we all just hung out, either
reading or playing games for most of the day and never once felt bored or too hot.
Equally, it is nice to have a large room inside, as in SOTS as the
children often played or relaxed a bit inside if they wanted to.
We don't mind a drive, and actually really enjoyed the drive to
Kefalonia, exploring the countryside along the way. We also loved the
adventure of a ferry ride, we would welcome this again.

As mentioned earlier, SOTS pretty much hit everything I could possibly want from somewhere, we were so happy there. I am very keen to go there again, but equally want to keep exploring - maybe we can combine the 2 - fingers crossed you can open our eyes to another adventure in Greece!

Thank you again, I love your country, hopefully the start
of many more happy memories!

Best wishes
Camilla

 

Fiona P. arrived 2th Aug 2015

We had such a lovely time in the peace and tranquillity of the Sound of the Sea and were made very welcome by Sophia.
The information that we were provided before we went to Greece was excellent as was the service while we were there. The few queries we had were dealt with promptly and efficiently by Sophia and Pretty Greek Villas. We had never visited the Peloponnese before and thought it was a beautiful area with plenty to see and was so quiet compared to the islands – we plan to visit again at some point, possibly in the spring time when we can appreciate the flowers and do some walking in cooler temperatures.

Although there are already a lot of lovely pictures on your website (which are what first attracted us to the property), I thought you might like the attached one I took of the terrace at night time - it is a particularly lovely spot to pass the evening, drinking, eating, playing games and talking into the night. Do pass a copy onto Sophia.

Many thanks and kind regards

Fiona P.

 

Pippa B. arrived 26th July 2015

We loved Sound of the Sea and would definitely be interested in renting it again next summer...a really beautiful spot and loved the terrace..

Thanks for all your help,

Susan R. arrived 27th June 2015

We so enjoyed our stay at Sound Of The Sea,
our hosts couldn't have been more thoughtful or kind.
We wouldn't hesitate to book with Pretty Greek Villas again.

Kind regards,
Susan

 

Erica K. arrived 13th June 2015

We had an amazing time, the Sound of the Sea¹ is one of the most
beautiful places we have ever been too and we spent a lot of time
before the children travelling, If anyone is looking for a real break
peace and quite in a non touristic place then Sound of the Sea is for
them, the local people are lovely the taverna down the road was so
friendly (if they do not have the drink you like you to bring your
own), the villa owners were really helpful and Didyma was very
authentic with incredibly friendly shop owners and everything was so
inexpensive (one tip take small bank notes as they can not always change a 50 Euro note) and the caves were surreal.

We saw lots of amazing fish and even a large turtle, plus a range of
birds of prey, we even think we saw an eagle ( but we are not that
Well read on birds)

We had a really good day on Spetses ( Paradise beach with great Mellon cocktails) we have holiday there before and love it but we were so happy to come back to the quite and beauty of Salandi bay

With kindest regards
Erica

Thank you.
Nick

 

Penny A. arrived 4th Oct 2014

Just to let you know that the villa was very well provisioned compared
with others we have stayed in. The owners were very kind and generous as well-giving us the food we asked for as well as a small present! Not your normal treatment! Cleaning was fine, rubbish was removed (again we would normally expect to do that).
Views from villa were great, and sea amazingly calm for most of the time.
The thunderstorms were a bit dramatic! Lovely and warm and sunny the rest of the time with very little wind mostly.
Your instructions and useful tips were very helpful
We did find good tavernas and restaurants in Kilada that were open and catering for the yachts still.
The Didima dolines were quite amazing too.
Enjoyed a trip over the mountains to Volcano, visited Mycenae, Nafpoli and Epidavros too. All worthwhile and interesting.

Many thanks
Penny A.

Thank you once more

We had a wonderful holiday at The Sound of the Sea! Sophia and Spiros are wonderful people who were always around if we needed help.
Two and half weeks were soent here. Our memories will last us throughout many a dark winter. Sophia and Spiros your kind hospitality was enveloping wheather a bag of eggs, cake, wine or your own olive oil.
The Sound of the Sea is a beautiful, tranquil part of the world. We are so very happy that we found it.

Many kind regards,
Mark, Julia, Frida, Tilda, Pheline.

Rien B. arrived 5th July 2014

We realy had a wonderfull stay at the Sound of the Sea, with the great terrace and the millionaires view !
The fully equipped kitchen was wonderful, no complains at all and the small shopping by the owner was a really nice welcome.
We like to give pretty Greek Villa a compliment for the service and the following up, correct and very to the point.

Kind Regard,

Rien B.

 

Alistair L. arrived 16th June 2014

I appreciate your note. That's great regarding the refund. We will use
it for a nice weekend break to get over post marriage blues.
I realise you were doing your best. Next time we head to Greece we
will definitely consider using you so no harms done. We understand
these things happen.

Best regards

Alistair

 

Jo Sh. arrived 29th March 2014

I just wanted to email you both and thank you for all your assistance before and during our rental of "Sound of the Sea". We had a wonderfully, relaxing family holiday and your assistance with planning, car hire and suggestions were fantastic (not to forget your calls over the holiday Anna to see we were okay - especially after we locked ourselves out!!!) The villa was perfect and it is a wonderful 'get away from everything' holiday. I am heading into an extremely busy period at work, so it was a perfectly relaxing time before the onslaught! Our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves (especially exploring the coastline). I hope we get back to Greece one day soon and rent one of your lovely villas.

Many thanks,
Jo Sh.

 

Philippa B. arrived 24th Aug 2013

We had a truly fabulous time at Sound of the Sea- we loved it. Sophia and her family were great hosts.
SO a couple of questions :
Do you have any other similar properties ie. very close to the see that would be comparable. Just to think about an alternative.
BUT if not- could you check if we could book the same two weeks (ie. last week August/ first week September) for 2014 at Sound of the Sea.

Many thanks to you and the team also
Best wishes
Philippa
 

 

Ulrich R. arrived 3th Aug 2013

We are having a really hard touch-down in the daily working life back
in Switzerland after such a wonderful time touring around Greece and
especially after this unique, great and superb week in this place
called "Sound of the Sea".
What a place to stay... words can hardly describe it!!
Again thanks to "pretty Greek Villas" for their professional
organisation, everything was working out nicely.

Best regards from cloudy Switzerland

Ulrich

 

William B. arrived 29th June 2013

Many thanks and we had a lovely time.

Both houses were great, not posh but traditional and beautifully
located right on the sea. Just what we wanted!!

I cant think of anything that didn't work well. perhaps we were lucky
but everything went like clockwork - houses, boats, cars.

We love Hydra and will definitely be back again soon.

Many thanks

William

 

Jacqui H. arrived 18th June 2013

We have only just got back from our stay
in Greece, which was as usual wonderful.
We had a really great time at Sounds of the Seas. Sophie was so lovely and so very hospitable. I real home from home. As we said to her, everything was in the right draw and there, just like being at home. We met the whole family one day in the butchers, as you do, and went across to visit her mothers house, where they were preparing for the daughters wedding.
Great excitement and cooking going on.
Also, the villa is beautiful in it's self.
We had a very memorable stay.

King regards and many thanks,

Jacqui H.

 

Charles L. arrived 8th June 2013

- seclusion of the location

Thanks

Charles L.

 

Jeremy O'G. arrived 24th May 2013

I would just like to say that Sound of The Sea exceeded expectations. Frankly I want to be there now. The perfect place to feel good about the world. Perfect for small children too. The owner (Sophia?) was delightful. Everything was expertly managed by you. Other things being equal, we’ll be back next year.

Many thanks

Jeremy

 

Anton S. arrived 20th Aug 2012

we enjoyed our stay a lot and would be looking
forward to rent with Pretty Good Villas in the future.
Cheers,
Anton

 

Federica G. arrived 8th Aug 2012

Sound of the Sea is perfectly summarised in the name of the villa - the only break to silence and absolute relax was… the sound of the sea. Never have we found a more relaxing villa, literally steps from the sea. All the plans we had to visit the surrounding area were jeopardised by the fantastic peace we found in that home by the sea.
The taverna down the shore spoiled us with such good - and easy to reach - lunches.
The owner, Sofia, so pleasant, so generous, brought us fresh produce from her gardens.
In Didyma, lamb spits and laughter constantly in the air was truly special: such a small hilltop town, but so lively!
The house decor was exquisite, as the owner.
I have not a single bit of criticism to make.
Very good choice.

Have a good day,

Federica

 

Alice R. arrived 8th June 2012

Catharine M. arrived 14th Aug 2011

A delated but huge thank you for all that you did to make our holiday such a perfect one. Special thanks for organising our final day in Athens, Vasillis was wonderful and we had a great few hours at the Acropolis.

As I sit here in a wet cold UK it all seems a million miles away! Must start planning for next year. Do you have any other similar waterfront properties on your books? To be able to dip into the sea from both Sound of the Sea and Mariner's Retreat was just fabulous.

With huge thanks again and very best wishes,

Catharine

 

Anthony L. arrived 7th Aug 2011

We had a lovely time at Sound of the Sea. Quiet and isolated was what we were looking for after 10 days in Italy with our family. Thank you for your help and service.

Cordially,
Tony L.

 

Francesca Ph. arrived 17th July 2011

The Sound of the Sea provided an excellent, idyllic break. In a beautiful, private and tranquil spot, the villa was everything we hoped for. Clean, well equipped and perfectly comfortable, we were very happy with our stay and felt very well looked after.
Everything was just perfect - ideal for a wonderful,
restful break away from the stresses of life. The key selling point for me was the position of the villa, being right next to the sea was truly a
priviledge and the name of the villa is very apt!

Many thanks

Francesca

 

René H. arrived 19th June 2011

We had a perfect stay, we enjoyed every single day at this marvellous place.
I appreciated the prompt and clear communication. Unfortunately the provisioning order did not work but Sophia made it up with some complementarily house wine and olive oil.
All in all, we were very happy with the service we got. And the villa
fulfilled the expectations and matched 100% the information we found on your homepage.
Looking forward for a future stay in one of these pretty greek villas

kind regards
René and Eveline

 

Caroline P. arrived 7th June 2011

We had the BEST time! We cannot thank you enough for
everything you did to make our honeymoon so special.
We'd also like to pass on that Heli Rental Cars was wonderful,
particularly Kimone. He even took the time to teach Adam how to drive a manual transmission!
Vicki, at Mariner's Retreat, also went out of her way to
make our stay something we'll always remember.
Thank you and we definitely hope to go to Greece again in the future!
We'll also recommend you to our family and friends.

Best,
Caroline

 

Andrea K. arrived 16th April 2011

Thank you very much for the message you had left on my mobile and the wines. We took it back with us and will remember, while enjoying, the beautiful spot of Salanti Bay.
Sofia and her family had been lovely and we had a great holiday !
We certainly would contact you again for any next holiday in Greece.

Many thanks and best regards
Andrea

 

Richard I. arrived 14th Aug 2010

We really enjoyed our holiday at the Sound of the Sea - a truly
wonderful location and Spiros and family were very welcoming and
hospitable. We got to tour around a little also, going to Porto Heli and
into Didima, as well as spending a few days in Nafplio after we had
finished our stay at the villa.

With thanks and best wishes,

Richard

 

Hayley S. arrived 7th Aug 2010

Thank you for the wonderful holiday last week. We absolutely loved the house, and the surrounding area, and will definitely be back.

Please pass on our thanks also to Sofia and her family.

Thank you again

Bill M. arrived 10th July 2010

We had a great week at Sound of the Sea: lovely villa, very well presented, well equipped and with lots of nice touches (beach towels, loads of fresh herbs etc).
The boat rental is a lovely idea and was much anticipated in the run up to the holiday.
Special mention for Poseidon Sports, 100yds along the beach from Takis. Run by two Brits this is a very well set up sailing/windsurfing/kayaking operation offering teaching and rental. We rented a Hobie Cat from them and spend an afternoon blasting round in the Meltemi (any time the wind has a name you want to be on the water!). May be a good recommendation for other guests in the Porto Heli area or looking for a holiday in Greece that includes this type of activity.

Regards

Bill

 

Mariusz B. arrived 19th June 2010

I would like to thank you for your affords to make our holidays something else. It was really mistic days for us, except of the fact, that it was our special travel because of our's 25th marriage aniversary.
What was very importent - all the facts you have described on your web pages & in e-mails were not really correct - in the matter of fact the villas were better than the their descriptions!!

best wishes
Mariusz
 

 

Sally L. arrived 22th May 2010

Pretty Greek Villas facilitated a great holiday for our family. The Sound of the Sea was the ideal retreat for a busy family. Our two young girls enjoyed the shore break some 10 feet away from the front door. We saw lots of wildlife including a tortoise and an aquarium of fish. Totally relaxing (10 books red) we felt honoured to stay in what was the owners pride and joy. Very happy memories for us all.

Thanks

Rob

 

Steve Sp. arrived 23th April 2010

Clarissa H. arrived 20th June 2009

We had a really lovely time at the Sound of the Sea. It was an amazingly quiet and unspoilt spot. We were really pleased with Pretty Greek Villas services and felt that you bent over backwards to help us. We will definitely recommend your company to any interested friends of ours.

Looking forward to going to another Villa next year!

Best wishes

Joe R. arrived 2th May 2009

We have had a most enjoyable holiday but we could have done with an additional two weeks !
I would like to thank you very much indeed for your kind and most efficient handling of our holiday at the Sound of the Sea.Everything was perfect,Vassilis is very pleasant and a very re-assuring driver, Heli Cars gave us excellent service and the two persons involved are very charming. Both companies are an asset to your organisation.

We found an excellent butcher in Kranidi and Alpha Beta in Porte Heli amply satisfied all our requirements
The fish tavernas in Kalida were excellent and often used by us
The house was very comfortable, clean and well equipped.
We have been unable to identify the tree species at the end of the terrace, do you have any idea?
Once again very many thanks to you and the Nastatos family

Kindest regards and best wishes

Joe

 

Michala S. arrived 2th Aug 2008

Now we are back in Denmark with rain and cold weather so we miss Sound of the Sea very much. That house was more than perfect for us and we enjoyed every minute there. So I would be very glad if you would give our best regards to the family – I tried to tell the husband how glad we were spending time there, but I am not sure that his English was good enough to understand what I meant. It was worth every penny.
We had a great vacation and I am sure that we will return to Greece in the future

Kind regard

Michala S. and family

 

Penny J. arrived 24th May 2008

What can we say apart from absolutley fantastic. A beautiful
setting and so relaxing, of course we didn't want to leave.
The kids loved it as well and are keen to know if someone will make sure the cat gets fed because it has two kittens!!
The main taverna in Didyma had excellent food and were very
friendly.
Also we'd like to pass on the tip that the sandy beach at Kosta is
lovely with a
simple taverna on the beach. It might get busy but last week we were the only ones there.
We have already recommended the villa to various friends.
We are very grateful to you for recommending Sounds of the Sea and may well be back to see what you have next year!

Thanks again
Penny

 

Fern O. arrived 10th May 2008

Mark S. arrived 3th May 2008


We were very pleased with our accommodation and your services prior to and at the point of arrival.
We had no problems with the property and trust that all was well after we left.
We had a very relaxing time which was what we wanted.

Many thanks
Mark

 

Peter & Lucianne A. arrived 16th June 2007

We had a terrific time at the villa and thanks very much for all that you did to help plan this holiday. It really helps when travelling with small children. We thought the setting right by the beach could not have been more perfect and the villa itself is, well - just gorgeous! We enjoyed our day out on the boat with Takis.... It was really good fun and we actually managed to see dolphins that day which was a bit of a bonus. Anyway, many thanks for everything and Lucianne and I hope to be back in touch for next year!

Best wishes
Peter A.
