Groves, hills and sea: A journey into authentic Greece
Costa Navarino is located 48 kilometres from the international airport of Kalamata. What the founder of the local resort, Captain Vassilis, felt when he saw this coastal stretch for the first time is unfortunately not on record. But it is easy to see why the former CEO of a shipping company decided to buy property here in the 80s to build a first-class resort: Costa Navarino is embedded like a jewel between the sapphire blue Ionian Sea and the lush green hills of Messenia. Centuries-old olive groves on lavish hillscapes and a mild climate with an average temperature of 25°C are ideal prerequisites for an authentic Greek holiday.
Authentic luxury: Living comfort at the highest level
Costa Navarino: There is hardly another resort that offers so much authenticity. More than 180 excellence awards bear witness to this. Although Captain Vassilis passed away in 2011 shortly after the completion of the first construction phase of his dream project, his vision of creating a unique holiday destination on more than 1,000 hectares - integrated seamlessly into the cultural heritage of Messenia and its landscape - has come into being. A residential space with the highest standards of design and craftsmanship was created here from wood and natural stone that has no equal anywhere in the world. It is not only the two 5-star hotels that are impressive, but above all the villas of the Navarino Residences with their successful combination of authenticity and modern comfort. Here, the conservation of nature and culture is held in high regard, and the resort received an award by the World Travel & Tourism Council in 2014 as one of the most sustainable destinations worldwide.
Leisure and culture: Where idleness is a virtue
The cultural and recreational offerings of the resort have also been integrated harmoniously into the surroundings. Two first class golf courses - The Dunes and The Bay - are located in the immediate vicinity of the resort. Both were designed with respect for nature and are considered as some of the most impressive places in the Mediterranean region. Adjacent are 21 bars and restaurants offering culinary highlights. Gourmets can look forward to local wines and olives specifically cultivated in Costa Navarino. Despite all the hospitality of the resort, it is still highly recommendable to also explore the immediate surroundings. The locals you meet during your discovery tours of the neighbouring villages and towns welcome guests with open arms. Here you can experience typical Greek hospitality at its best: during a chat with fishermen at the harbour of Pylos or when local women introduce you to the secrets of the traditional cuisine.
Resort properties: A rewarding investment
There are many reasons why a second home in Costa Navarino is a worthwhile investment. But see for yourself and experience the authentic comfort, the unique climate and Greek hospitality first hand. Be inspired by some of our dream properties in Costa Navarino. Until then, let us bid you farewell in the manner you may experience soon on a holiday to Greece: Antío! (Goodbye!)
