What Oliver loves…
- Villa Stoupa 1 is beautifully designed over three floors, it’s perfect for a small family or two couples holidaying together
- The villa combines the best of both worlds, built with traditional local stone yet decorated with a contemporary interior in very stylish blue and white trim
- The views from the villa over the Aegean Sea are quite magical, you can’t beat the ambiance of sipping a cocktail on the terrace whilst the sun sets
- Subject to availability, those in larger groups can choose to additionally rent one or both of the neighbouring villas Villa Stoupa 2 and Villa Stoupa 3
- Reading for the holiday should be either Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis, or Mani by Patrick Leigh Fermor, both the authors lived on the beach here!

Villa Stoupa 1 is located in the village of Stoupa itself, on the Western Mani Peloponnese Peninsula, Southern Greece. There is a new road that connects the airport to Kalamata, and is approximately fifty five kilometres, a one and a half hours scenic drive through the Greek countryside and coastline. The village itself is less than a 5-minute drive away, where you will find plenty of local provisions for your stay, welcoming cafes and bars, twenty restaurants and a church or two. There are two great beaches within the area, the nearest is Stoupa, and just over the hill is Kalogoria with inviting turquoise water and rich marine life, made famous by Nikos Kazantzakis and the film Zorba, the Greek.
The fishing village of Agios Nikolaos is just three kilometres from the villa, where you can delight in the charms of traditional Greek life. The village of Limeni is also well worth a visit, a thirty five kilometre drive from the villa. Renowned for its wild beauty and emerald waters, Limeni is an historic harbour town, where you can explore the recently restored 1762 Castle of Movromichalis. Limeni doesn’t have a beach but you can access the sea via steps or platforms from the rocks, then enjoy its unique ambiance in one of the many cafes and restaurants. The flourishing financial and cultural centre of the town of Aeropolis is a twenty five minute drive away. Famed for its tower houses built out of local stone, it has a new and old town, and an open-air market every Saturday. Reputed to the be the starting point of the revolution against the Ottoman Empire, discover its history in the Pyrgos Pikoulaki, the museum of Mani. Meet in Plata Athanaton, the central square, where you will find the Taxiarches Cathedral, a museum of religious artefacts, and the Byzantine Chapel of St John. Stroll down the picturesque streets, shop for souvenirs, sip an ouzo in a local café and watch the world go by. And if it’s nightlife you are after Aeropolis is the place to be.
The Mani Peninsula is famed for its food, most notably the local delicacy of glina or syglina, a smoked pork sausage, the wild herbs of thyme, oregano, and mint, and homemade honey naturally scented with pine or orange blossom from the indigenous flora. Kalamata claims to be the best olive oil in the world, and you can test this for yourself with a walking tour and tasting with a dedicated olive oil sommelier. The Maniots claim to be descendants of Mycean, Dorian, Spartan, Byzantine, Franks, Saracens, Italian, Venetian, and Ottoman cultures, all play a part in their local history. Take the car and discover the numerous castles and fortresses, churches and chapels, monasteries and ruins scattered throughout the coast and peninsula.
For those who fancy a more relaxing holiday the area is blessed with many beautiful bays and beaches, such as Neo Otilo or Itylo, where you can sunbathe on loungers with parasols. Whilst the more active can practice water sports at Vathy or Mavrovouni beach and jet ski in its deeper waters. Take a walk and trek one of the many nature trails to discover the area’s natural flora and fauna, and authentic Maniot village life. Follow in the steps of the author Patrick Leigh-Fermor to Kardamyli, where you can visit the home which inspired many of his books. And for film fans it is also the setting for the romantic comedy Before Midnight. Further afield make a cultural odyssey to the ancient towns of Argolis, Sparta, Mystros, Monemvasia, Diros, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora, and the Corinth Canal, where you will discover the world of Homer and the ancient Greeks.

How to reach Peloponnese
You can easily reach Loutraki, the main seaside resort on the Peloponnese peninsula. Loutraki is located approximately 80 km from Athens and you can arrive to Loutraki through the National road.
There’s so much for your kids to enjoy with a stay at Villa Stoupa 1. Starting with the villa itself, there is a television in the living area and bedrooms that all have built in satellite channels, ready to watch all their favourite programmes on cooler days or evenings. The large private swimming pool is perfect for a splash and play day, and when it’s yours there’s no limited hours. The nearest beach at Stoupa is just a short drive away, and over the hill is Kalogria, with a volleyball net, golden sands to make castles, and easy entry warm shallow waters.
In the village of Limeni they can jump into the sea from rock platforms, or in the town of Aeropolis they can walk the old streets and discover a little of the local culture in churches and museums. You’ll be spoilt for choices with beautiful beaches, bays, and secret coves that literally litter the coast of the Mani peninsula, most providing sun loungers and parasols, with cafes and local tavernas for a spot of lunch. No stay in Mani is complete with a boat trip, join a shared one or charter your own yacht and spend a family day at sea, snorkelling and swimming in the warm Aegean waters. Children and adults alike love a day out at the Caves of Diros, an underground network of caves and rock formations, part of which is underwater. Pay the ferryman to guide you through crystal clear waters, look up at the fascinating stalactites, as you meander through the two and a half kilometres of winding passages, then complete the tour on foot.
Take a trip to the town of Ancient Messene, where your children can take part in a Game of Thrones interactive guided tour of this newly opened archaeological site, and discover a city of fortifications, temples, an agora, a stadium, and a theatre. If you are feeling daring drive to Cape Tenaro, which separates the Aegean from the Ionian Sea, and is believed to be the entrance to Hades, the southernmost natural harbour, the end of the living world and gate to the underworld guarded by Cerberus, the multi-headed hound. For something a little more sedate, ride in a gondola style boat through the caves at Pirgos Dirou, Vlychada, partly underwater, and wonder at the natural phenomenon of rock formations.
If medieval castles are their thing, take them to Momemvasia, where there is a natural fortress, and Europe’s only castle that has never ceased to be inhabited, as well as a Byzantine church with frescoes, and lovely local wines and olive oils. At Kalamata there is a treasure hunt for kids, where they can discover everything there is to know about olives and oil. Get some fresh sea air into their lungs with local guided sea kayak lessons, RIB boat trips, and on land Stoupa bike tours. The coastline is covered in castles, fortresses, old ruins, secret coves and beautiful bays, join guided tours or take a family ramble to discover the natural flora and fauna and history of the Mani peninsula.
