To ταξίδι

The journey

Your journey starts with ascent, hovering above the clouds, the place where Greek Gods looked down on ancient Greece.

You can fly quickly to Villa FINIKI in 3.5-4 hours from various airports in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
Take the time to find the ideal flight for you.

From Athens it is approximately a 3.5-4 hour drive (316 km) to our villa (without stops). The highway is a toll road with 8 toll stops, a total of € 18 (2023) for a single trip. But you can also take 3 days to get to know the Peloponnese. If you need help planning this trip, we are happy to help!
If you want to book an overnight stay along the way, take a look at this user-friendly site: or, try to approach the accommodation yourself, maybe you can agree on a nice price.

From April/May to September/October you fly directly to Kalamata from Amsterdam and various airports in Germany.
Kalamata is approximately 50 kilometers from Fíniki, you can reach our villa in an hour!
You sometimes pay a little more for the comfort of flying directly to Kalamata.
Tickets can be a lot less cheap than flights to Athens, just check in time and take advantage of offers.
Renting a car is sometimes more expensive in Kalamata, but we can help you with a good and cheap rental company.

After booking you will receive exact directions to Villa FINIKI.

Rent a car:
Without a car you are nothing in the Peloponnese.
We therefore recommend that you rent a car at the airport (considerably cheaper in the early and late season than in the high season).
It is best if you have already arranged this at home.
Holiday CarsRentalcars, Auto Europe: These sites look for the cheapest company, such as Hertz, Avis, Europcar, …
If you land in Kalamata, we can help you find a reliable company and you will receive a 10% discount through us.

Make sure you book a company that is actually at the airport itself or nearby.
A company that is located just outside the airport is often cheaper.
They will pick you up from the airport and then drive you to their office (shuttle service).
Check carefully which insurance is included.
