Nestled amidst the turquoise blue waters and lush olive groves of Greece’s Mani Peninsula, Villa Dinu is an exquisite five-bedroom holiday home for ten. A small, tranquil pathway takes you to the stunning Rista Beach, while the region teems with a slew of activities, including kayaking and sea cave canoeing.

Offering panoramic views of the Mediterranean landscapes, the villa features a tropical garden, which is a perfect spot for your morning tea. Sunbathe on lounge chairs and dine al-fresco against a backdrop of golden sunsets. The spacious outdoor deck gives off a leafy, relaxed feel, boasting a private swimming pool and a BBQ area best enjoyed on a wintery day.

Inspired by quintessential Greek architecture, the interiors are designed with mostly natural materials like wood, metal and stone. Traditional Byzantine tiles blend artfully with Mani stones and antiques collected over the years from around the globe. The villa’s thoughtful layout ensures natural ventilation and abundant light across all rooms. It comprises two independent buildings and a cosy studio space. There are two living areas, where contemporary finishes merge with earthy fittings, rustic cement floors and local Greek artefacts. A heady mix of the past and present makes for an ambience that is warm, inviting and magically soothing. Whip up a creamy Moussaka in the two fully-equipped kitchens and enjoy it before the roaring fireplace. Savour mornings of solitude on large balconies or call it a night in the sumptuous bedrooms. Both buildings have bathrooms and two comfy bedrooms each, that sleep at least four guests.

One of the most attractive features of Villa Dinu is the ground-floor studio. Epitomising a storybook holiday come to life, it promises a cosy getaway for couples and honeymooners. It has a single room and a bathroom, both elegantly designed.  
Other amenities in the house include iPod docking stations, a Nespresso coffee machine, a refrigerator, a TV and a safety deposit box.

Villa Dinu is located in the picturesque region of Mani in Greece. Spend your time exploring the stunning gorge of Nandi, and hike against a glorious backdrop of the Taygetos mountains — the highest peak of the Peloponnese.
A three-hour drive will take you to the vibrant city of Athens, a treasure trove of eclectic restaurants and historic sites of ancient Greece.  

The hamlet of Kardamyli is 47 km from the airport. Stroll through the cobbled stone streets of Old Kardamyli, go cafe hopping and witness the striking Tower of Mourtzinos. There are several hidden gems near Kardamyli that are well worth a visit — including Itilo, Areopolis, and the captivating Diros caves. Visit the age-stained church of Agios Spiridon. Built in Byzantium, it’s known for its awe-inspiring belfry. The city of Kalamata is 38 km away, home to a myriad of scenic beaches and stunning landscapes. With a 5 km stretch of magical sands from Verga to the city’s port, it teems with oceanview hotels, eateries and pubs.

The gorgeous Rista Beach is a big yes for adventure junkies. Go fishing, canoeing and snorkelling. Or, spend your time parasailing and scuba diving in azure waters. Rent a kayak and explore the mesmerising beaches of Stoupa and bask in the unique Byzantine culture in Agios Nikolaos. Experience mountain biking or take a day tour of attractions like Chalikias, Salio and Kalamitsi. You’re sure to have a fantastic time at the Museum of Victoria G Karelias. Learn about the country’s fascinating folklore and get an insight into its beautiful culture.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

Kids are promised an incredible time in Villa Dinu. Pack a picnic basket and go on family hikes through the nearby landscapes. Enjoy hours of splashy fun in the large pool or play indoor games in the living area or settle them in front of the TV and switch on their favourite cartoons.

The garden offers a sprawling playground with a variety of activities to keep them hooked. If that’s not enough, spend an evening at the lovely Rista Beach, located just a few steps away, where you can swim in the sapphire blue waters and collect pretty seashells all day.

The region of Mani is choc-a-bloc with things to do for the whole family. Stroll through brightly-coloured streets, browse through charming shops and indulge your sweet tooth at ice cream parlours. Go horse riding or have a friendly game of tennis on the sprawling courts of Stoupa Messinias.
