Bungalow | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
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 Bungalow is a one-storey stone house built in the local style, with stone walls and a tile roof. It is only 100m from the main beach of Stoupa. Situated towards the back of a 1900 sq m garden, it affords quiet and privacy in the center of the village. The main feature of this house is its spacious living room, with its charming fireplace and a small nook with a media center and a large bookcase with a good selection of both adult and children's books. The two bedrooms open directly into the living room. Just of the kitchen there is a covered veranda, providing a perfect setting for breakfast or late night snacks.
Outside, there is a beautifully laid flagstone patio on two sides of the house, ideal for children's play.

The Messenia Region
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 set amongst olive groves with the Taygetos Mountains rising to the east. It 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 snorkelling. Umbrellas and sunbeds are available for rental at daily or 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. Small motor boats are also available from Stoupa beach. Because Stoupa is a small village, everything is within an easy walk. In addition to cafes, there are restaurants, gift shops, a rental shop where you can find anything from fans to bicycles, and a pharmacy. For more adventurous souls, cars, motor scooters, and bicycles can also be rented, There are also 2 supermarkets and a bakery.
The climate is mild in winter, possibly the warmest in continental Europe. Stoupa is within easy reach of a 24 hour medical centre (2 km), and one hour from the major city of Kalamata.

"The perfect place for a holiday!"
This was the third time I rented the Bungalow and I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Stoupa or the Mani. The sun-filled bungalow is centrally located and an easy walk to the beach and sho… More
