Luxurious Holiday Homes in Greece

Welcome to Gialova at the Navarino Bay


Messenia, at the southwestern tip of the Peloponnese, is a portrayal of authentic Greece. Shaped by its olive culture, the area is developing steadily as its tourist infrastructure progresses with delicate foresight.

The Gialova Holiday Villas are a brand new addition to the area. Guests can spend their holidays here, just above the small town Gialova. The view of the bay is exceptional: from one end of the cove, where the charming small town of Pylos is located, across the nearby islands, all the way to the castle ruins of Palaiokastro and the Gialova Lagoon natural reserve.

The beach is just 270 yards away and is directly connected to the promenade with its taverns, restaurants, cafés, small shops and boutiques. Shop. Dine. Drink Ouzo - and above all, enjoy the Greek serenity. Or how about outdoor activities? The nearby opportunities include surfing, water skiing and golfing (two 18-hole golf courses, 5 and 15 minutes away). Notable excavation sites such as Ancient Messene and Olympia, as well as historical sites such as Sparta with its archaeological Museum and monumental fortresses, make a great (half-) day trip.

Gialova Lagoon

One day in Gialova

Gialova Lagoon also known as Divari, from the Latin word vivarium, meaning "fishery" – is a brackish body of water in the municipality of Pylos-Nestor, Greece, about 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) north of Pylos.

The lagoon, together with Voidokilia Bay, belongs to a unique ecosystem which constitutes a protected zone, in terms of both natural and cultural heritage.

Jolanda stayed with us for a week in juli, we love her.

At the end of October we spent a week at Gialova Gardens (villa Andrea). It exceeded our expectations! The villa was well equipped, had the basic needs on stock, was superbly clean, and exactly right in every other way. We enjoyed sitting on the different terraces with amazing view while the kids loved playing around the villa under the olive trees. The communication upfront as well the contact with the owners throughout our holiday went perfect. Gialova was exactly what we were looking for: a nice mix of inhabitants and tourists, enough restaurants/cafes and shops to fulfil our needs. Within short driving distance enough possibilities to relax on beautiful beaches as well as do excursions such as exciting hikes or visit archaeological sites. We can highly recommend Gialova Gardens to everyone.

The Bartels' are from The Netherlands. They came in August. They spent a really nice week. What a lovely family! We love to have you back.

Thank you so much for this beautiful holidays in the Peloponesse. The kids loved it! We searched for a location to do a relaxed holiday with the kids and we found it at the Gialova Villas.
