A stay in any of our three traditional Mani homes offers our guests a unique experience in holiday home rental. As a result of our own extensive travel experiences we have made every effort to furnish our houses as if they were homes, rather than a rental facility.

The Mani region of Greece lies in the southernmost part of the Peloponnese. Starting at Kalamata, it follows the Taygetos mountain range south to Cape Tenaron. Combining picturesque mountain villages with their stone tower-houses and lovely seaside villages, the Mani is a place of extraordinary beauty.
From the wall of Verga, just south of the modern city of Kalamata, to villages of traditional Mani Fighting Towers in the southern end of the peninsula, the Mani is a region where the past and present coexist in close proximity. Scant kilometers from fishing villages with modern hotels, restaurants and internet cafes catering to summer tourists lie beautiful mountain villages, nestled amid olive groves, that have changed little in the last hundred years.
While a popular spring and summer destination for European and American travellers, the Mani is untouched by the commercial mass-tourism industry. The towns retain their small village atmosphere and visitors do not have to fight crowds at the beaches or restaurants.
Stoupa is a coastal village in the unspoiled Mani region. The village is built around three bays, two of which have sand beaches that are among the most beautiful on the Mani Peninsula. They are well suited for families because of the shallow waters near the shore. The third bay has a pebble beach, and is ideal for snorkeling. The village is set amongst olive groves with the Taygetos Mountains rising to the east. Umbrellas and sunbeds are available for rental at daily and weekly rates. There are some cafes just off the beaches that offer cold drinks and light meals for lunch. Kayaks and pedaloes can be rented from either Stoupa or Kalogria beach.
Because Stoupa is a small village, everything is within an easy walk. In addition to the cafes, you can find restaurants, gift shops, a rental shop where you can rent anything from fans to bicycles, and a pharmacy. For more adventurous souls, cars, motor scooters, and bicycles can also be rented in the village. There are also 2 supermarkets and a bakery. Stoupa is within easy reach of a 24 hour medical centre (2 km), and one hour from the major city of Kalamata.
The winter months in Stoupa are very mild, possibly the mildest in continental Europe, which makes it ideal for long term winter rentals.
