Fig Leaf Villas is a small, high quality naturist resort in the Southern Peloponnese set above the Messinian Gulf amongst olive groves with wonderful views of the sea and the mountains beyond. We have three villas with a shared swimming pool set in an acre of beautiful terraced gardens dripping with bougainvillea, jasmine, oleanders, vines, and many more lush and sweet scented flowers. We also offer various sailing trips from 1 day up to a week aboard our fantastic 43ft yacht, or our smaller lively 29ft yacht. (these trips are subject to availability). The sailing days can be part of your villa holiday or added on at either end, or a separate holiday- please contact Fig Leaf Villas for details. NB. NEW FOR 2017, we have two one week naturist sailing cruises coming up this year, one in June and the other in September, please contact us for dates and details.
All three villas have one bedroom and are ideal for a couple. However, the largest of the villas, Villa Elya, is 60sq.m. and can sleep up to 4 people using the sofa-bed in the living room, either as a double or two singles. This villa is wonderfully spacious, set in an elevated position with a huge veranda that wraps round 2 sides of the villa, enjoying a spectacular view. Villa Seeka, 40sq.m. sleeps 2 and is L-shaped and nestles in its own corner well away from the other two villas and is surrounded by fig trees, oleanders, herbs and many flowers. It has two terraces, one facing the sea, shaded by bougainvillea, vines and jasmine; the other accessed by the main room and the bedroom. It also has a wood-burning stove making it very cosy for autumn, winter and spring lets. Villa Dafni is 30 sq.m and sleeps 2 and also has breathtaking views of the mountains and sea. There is a veranda on two sides plus its own garden sitting area. Please note that Villas Elya and Dafni are attached.
We have a large swimming pool, 10m x 5m, with a pool bar and top quality bar food with a cosmopolitan touch! our Greek meze night is very popular with our guests: around 8 Greek dishes over 4 courses We also have a flood-lit boules court.
The area has lots of fabulous beaches many of which are suitable for naturism- the villas have comprehensive information packs with advice about the best beaches, days out and all the fantastic historical sites that abound in our area.
The Peloponnese is unusually lush for Greece, we have mountains, and rivers that flow all year round and wonderful waterfalls nearby with clear turquoise water. The area also has many very picturesque fishing villages and hilltop villages that haven't changed for the past century or more!
The local food and wine is excellent and some of the best vegetarian food in Europe- and still very reasonably priced- a couple can eat out with two courses and wine for around 20- 25€. Tourism in the area is very low-key, just enough to give a nice holiday atmosphere and supply visitors with good bars and tavernas, but never crowded and over-busy.
Our sailing trips differ from usual in several ways: we offer all your food and drink, with the exception of the evening meal taken on shore. The skipper's fee is included and you don't have to feed him- he feeds you! The price also includes cleaning and fuel. There are towels and bedding also provided. The sailing area around the Messinian Gulf and the Southern Ionian is superb, with reliable breezes, great naturist anchorages and, because the waters are quiet, superb opportunities for naturism soon after leaving the marina. We also have a 29ft Jeanneau Sun Odyssey available for bare - boat charter for any sailors out there! We are running two one-week long cruises this season, please see our BN special offer.
We have two airports that give access to the villas and the yacht: Athens (EasyJet, BA, Ryanair and Aegeanair), and Kalamata (Thomas Cook, British Airways and easyJet).
