    The Sunrise

    “Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.”

Welcome to


Experience slow, quiet agricultural Greece with tranquil shady olive groves rolling down to secluded sandy beaches.  Our villas are in amongst the olive groves, just above Gargarou beach. We are near the village of Koroni, near the southern tip of the Messinian peninsula, in the south of the Peloponnese.

Saint Fridays Villas are set in a garden overlooking terraced olive groves and vineyards sloping down to the sea. We are a short walk from the beach. All our villas have a view of the sea with large verandas facing out toward the the gulf of Messinia, looking towards the Mani.


What our guests say

"Most Relaxing Vacation Ever"

We spent six amazing days staying at the Villa Nestors at the end of August 2012. Nestors has a spectacular 180-degree view of the Messenian gulf, Mani mountains and nearby Koroni Village from the amazing balcony. A typical day involved waking up and watching the sunrise over the Mani mountains and listening to the ocean in the distance. We loved the fresh bread that Paul provided every morning, before a short walk to the beach and swim in the ocean. We had complete silence and it was one of the most relaxing vacations!

"Happy to give 5/5 across the board and not just because Paul and Banana are such lovely people!"

"Lovely Local Beaches"

It was tempting to stay each day and enjoy the changing view from the comfort of the generous terraces but there were lots of beaches, ruins, stories and great food to go and explore. Enough within an hours drive to make for a busy 2week itinerary.

"Clean, comfortable accommodation"

Really clear guidance ahead of the trip and friendly help whenever we needed it made it very easy to quickly relax into our clean, comfortable accommodation which was simple but had enough interesting features to make it far from generic.
