Villa | 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.
Villa Leftkron lies on 950 sqm of landscaped grounds enclosed by a stone wall. It is oriented to take advantage of the magnificent Taygetos mountains, the olive groves, Stoupa bay and the refreshing sea breezes.
The ground floor has a large living room with a cathedral ceiling, stairs leading up to a loft and two tall French doors facing the sea. Separated by an archway, is the spacious fully-equipped kitchen. Two patios, off from the kitchen and living room, are ideal for al fresco dining. The ground floor also has a full-sized bathroom.
Upstairs, leading off from the loft, are two bedrooms, each with a balcony, overlooking the mountains, olive-groves and coastline. There is another bathroom attached to the loft. There is also a sitting area with bookcase on the loft.

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 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.

"A beautiful villa in a lovely walking area"
We have very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Lefktron. When we arrived the garden was a carpet of beautiful wild flowers. Tracy and Takis had left us some lovely local oranges, nuts and wine, while the house had every comfort that we could think of to make it a beautiful holiday.
It was also our good funtune to have a week of wonderful weather, with hot sunshine and no rain. Each day we were able to go out for glorious walks up in the hills and along the coast. Each route a gem in itself, with so many wild flowers and finding 8 differnt types of orchids. The scenery was magnifient, with snow covered mountains, blue bays, tiny mountain villages and olive groves blanketed with wild flowers of every colour.
There were so many beautiful hiking paths, but here are a few we can recommend taking :- The cycle path from Stoupa to Aghios Nickolas, with lovely sea views. A beautiful circular walk from Pantazi beach to Plasta and Pigi, this was a delightful walk on an old kalderimi to little villages with kafenians and good walking signs. It was also a flower lovers dream. Walking from Exachori to Saidona and Prastio was lovely with many beautiful views and again wild flowers. Although the path from the small mountain village of Kastania to Driopi was difficult to follow it was full of flowers , we saw a wild tortoise and everywhere there was the sound of beautiful birds singing and goat bells. There are many walks starting from Kardamyli, but the two we enjoyed were quite different, up to old Kardamyli, Aghia sofia, Likaki monastery and back along the gorge. Also along the beach to Kambos and up to the ruined chapel following the Kalderimi towards Malta, for wonderful views and complete peace.
There are places to swim at the end of a number of the walks, at Pantazi beach, Stoupa with its soft sand, Kardamyli ,foneas, Velonas and Ritsa.
Back at the villa there was always a lovely place to sit in the peaceful garden, either in the shade or enjoying the sun. The house had a beautiful spot to enjoy breakfast and another to sit having an evening meal outside, while watching the sun set over the sea.
I found a good book of local walks and a new hiking map in th villa, but we also had another book of local walks with us and found that we never had to drive more than five miles each day to enjoy a different area. We hired a car from the airport and would recommend hiring a car to enjoy the area.

Villa Lefktron was absolutely wonderful. It was our best self-catering to date. The home is lovely, built in a traditional Mani stone and timber style. We felt comfortable the moment we walked in. Everything you could possibly want was included in the well-stocked home. The hosts went that extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. They were approachable and helpful without being intrusive in any way. There is so much to see and do in this area, the beach is beautiful, walking and villages great. I would highly recommend Villa Lefktron.

"Our best holiday rental yet! The most lovely villa to enjoy Greece."
We have just returned after 2 weeks at Villa Lefktron. We can't speak more highly of the villa - wonderful location, views, very well maintained, cleaned and furnished. Spacious and airy - nice and cool due to the tall ceilings and fans (A/Con not needed). WiFi included - very helpful for me (I didn't return home to 300 emails!) Lovely patio with a view to the sea. Within a little hamlet but with a sense of privacy. Tracy and Takis are delightful landlords who made sure we had everything we wanted. The resort is also lovely - clean beaches and warm sea. Excellent swimming and snorkelling. Well stocked reasonably priced nearby supermarket.
We thoroughly recommend Villa Lefktron. Enjoy the Greek dream there!
