Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
From sunrise to sunset you will love the large patio and 'infinity' pool which seems to flow into the sea! 3 bedroomed, fully air-conditioned stone villa built in the traditional style of the Mani region, comprising 3 double bedrooms, furnished with your comfort in mind. The main bedroom is situated on the ground floor and opens to the patio and pool, whilst the remaining 2 double bedrooms both open to the upstairs patio. All the rooms in the Villa are orientated to take advantage of the uninterrupted coastal views, cooling sea breezes and the magnificent sunsets.
Sunset Villa is less than 2 minutes drive to the crystal clear waters that lap the edges of variety of beautiful beaches. Fresh supplies are available at the 2 well stocked supermarkets plus an excellent bakery are on your doorstep in Stoupa & Agios Nikolaos. Enjoy the wide selection of delicious Greek regional cuisine at the many excellent Tavernas and fish restaurants nearby.
Not a beach fan? Then Stoupa and the Mani has plenty of interest photographically, and the subjest matter is brought to life by the light quality and direction. This is why so many painters love the mediterranean light. The peninsula faces both west and east, and this orientation is often advantageous. If you are a serious photographer, you will enjoy the early mornings and late evenings for many reasons including the light and shadow changes for three dimensional subjects such as villages and of course sunsets! Winter is especially interesting as from our villas we are blessed with dramatic views across the bay, which captures spectacular light and cloud patterns, scattered onto the sea and can be quite mesmerising. Just watching them form and change is enjoyment in itself.
Prefer a little history? On your doorstep in the Mani region are lots of churches, some dating from the 5th century AD, a monastery, Mycenean tombs, a Turkish/Venetian castle, tower houses and other places of interest. There are 10 walks of varying length and difficulty that are fully described and set out in an easily obtainable book by Mat Dean called "Walking In Mani"

The Peloponnese region
The Peloponnese is the most southern part of mainland Greece.This beautiful green peninsula plays host to almost every tourist who comes to Greece because most of Greece's important and imposing ancient sites are found here. Besides ancient monuments such as Olympia and Epidavros, the Peloponnese also serves as Greece's market garden and centre for olives, olive oil and wine production.
The dramatic coastline is filled with hidden coves and beaches, all backed by the Taygetos mountain range. The best way to explore this picturesque area is to hire a car and adventure and explore for yourself. The Peloponnese combines the scent of the sea, the mountains, olive trees, and vineyards.It is a place for all seasons

For the sun seekers, the area enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate with warm summers and mild winters making it an ideal summer or winter destination. On average the sun shines for 3,000 hours per year. In July days can get hot, but are often cooled by the summer breezes called the "Meltemi" winds. From June to August rainfall is rare. In Stoupa you may hire a small motor boat and explore the coast, discovering stunning caves and inlets that you would not know existed from the landward side! Trachila to the south is full of old pirate caves that date back centuries.
Summer is much longer than you would expect ,with beautiful clear days right through to December and January. Wild flowers of every colour cover the landscape from late September, right through until May.
