Varka Villas, a gated complex of 5 linked houses, is located in a peaceful and quiet area. The property is fully fenced, each villa has areas of exclusive use (terraces, private garden) & shared large areas of common use (access road, with assigned parking spaces, landscaped gardens etc.). A modest annual fee from each house covers the cost of garden maintenance.

The 41.30m2 of living area consisting of an open plan living room with recently installed, modern, fully equipped kitchen with new fridge freezer, a cozy wood burning stove and a new bathroom. There is a telephone point. The living area to the front of the villa opens onto a spacious, elevated terrace with a beautiful splash pool fitted with a new Graf filter unit: it provides plenty of space for sunbathing and entertaining and views over the town and mountains. A gazebo, large enough to allow 'al fresco' dining, provides shade in high summer. A private, mature garden adjoins this area, roses, honey suckle, jasmine and a mandarin orange tree flourish and provide blossom and fruit throughout the seasons.
To the south of the living room, French windows lead to a spacious, covered balcony with views of the palms and landscaped gardens, a glimpse of the sea, the historic Venetian tower, called the Bourtzi, and the uninhabited island of Sapienza in the distance.

An internal staircase leads to the lower floor measuring 37.20 m2 of living area and consists of one spacious bedroom with fitted wardrobes, a walk-in storage cupboard and a new bathroom with an electric radiator. The large, airy bedroom and the study area has access, by French windows, to a terrace and a paved yard and rear gardens. In the lower terrace store cupboard there is a plumbed-in washing machine.

The wooden windows with shutters, doors and traditional beamed ceiling make up the unique character of this house creating a wonderful aesthetic aura. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning units suitable for cooling and heating the house all year round. Also, there are two storage rooms one in the front of the house and one in the rear of the house suitable for storing tools and other household and garden equipment.

The gardens host plants of different heights and a variety of herbs and flowers to create interest and delight the senses. The gardens are a bird watchers paradise. Raptors and migratory birds taking a brief rest on their journeys can be seen from the balcony. Purple herons alight on the same tree each Spring whilst bee-eaters, hoopoes, pied wagtails, warblers and shrikes are amongst the smaller visitors. The property combines the requirements of a relaxing holiday retreat with the security of a rural, gated residence yet still close to the town.

Methoni is an old trading port, with Venetian links, evidence of which abounds in its beautiful castle beneath which lie a beach and a sheltered harbour. It is still remarkably unspoilt and traditional. Methoni has a doctors' surgery, dentist, pharmacy, good local shopping, supermarkets, bank, post office and very good restaurants.

Finikounda, 7 minutes by car, has four long sandy beaches. The village itself has a very pretty harbour for traditional fishing boats and recreational boats while a smaller village sandy beach is served by traditionally Greek cafes and restaurants.

Pylos, a 10 minute drive away, is a busy small town with port and extensive marina. It has a good range of shops and cafes built around a lovely central square, shaded by ancient plane trees. It also boasts an impressive castle. There are doctors and a small hospital/health centre with good facilities and reliable staff who provide prompt emergency service. Pylos and nearby restaurants featured in TV chef Rick Stein's travel series. Pylos annually celebrates Navarino Day, where in the early 19th century British, French and Russian ships overpowered Ottoman ships which culminated in assisting Greek Independence. Navarino Bay has three monuments to these countries which can be visited by boat in the summer months.
The Golden Beach, lagoon and wetlands made famous in travel brochures lie 20 minutes further along the coast beyond Gialova towards Nestor's palace. Ancient Messini and the museum are remarkable examples of ancient Greek architecture and remains that rival Olympia.

A prestigious golf course, Navarino Bay, is 15 minutes away while another course, Navarino Dunes, is 25 minutes.

It takes 55 minutes to drive to the International airport and the hospital of Kalamata which is the administrative capital of the area. Many international airlines now fly to Kalamata from Spring to late Autumn. Kalamata has a port, large yachting marina and motorway access to ATHENS. The centre of town has been the subject of major regeneration during the past few years and offers a wide range of shopping, eating and relaxing opportunities along its main boulevard. There is a greater variety of shops here offering designer goods and some internationally known stores.
Flights to Athens, 3.5 hours away by motorway, continue throughout the year.

The price of the house is 135,000
