This is an old traditional stone house in a Greek village in the Mani. The house has been totally refurbished yet retains a feeling of old charm. It is luxuriously appointed with all new appliances, A/C, furniture and furnishings. It is suitable for a couple with up to 5 children or 3 couples. Because of open railings on the upper terrace, it is not really suitable for small children.
The house is in a village not far from Stoupa in the Mani. This village is a "real" Greek village with very friendly neighbors. There are several tavernas serving wonderful Greek food. It is necessary to have a car to stay in our village as public transportation is very sparse.
Our village is near to the beautiful sandy beaches of touristy Stoupa (just 10 minutes away) but is a quiet and peaceful place. If you want to experience a Greek village without all the tourists yet have beaches nearby, our house is for you. The mountains behind the village are also gorgeous. Exploring some of the mountain villages is another delight of the area.
Enjoy stunning sunsets from the large terrace with a super view of the Messinian Bay! This is also the perfect place for a lovely late breakfast - fresh baked bread (wood oven) is available just around the corner.
NEW for 2010 is the addition of a new bedroom en suite in the kamara (cellar) part of the house. this beautiful new space is the best room in the house for those hot summer nights.
The main house has 2 full bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There is a separate entrace for the Kamara (cellar) bedroom with full bath.
This house was a ruin when it was purchased. Today it is a wonderful 2nd home. We stay in our Greek home 2 or 3 months each year. We love the pace of life here - warm, friendly and very relaxing. Of course, Greek food is wonderful! It is great to live in a real Greek village, away from all the tourists, yet close to beaches. When we are not travelling, we live near Bethany Beach in Delaware. We just got married in August 2008 so are still "newlyweds".
We lived in Europe (Yugoslavia, Germany and Greece) for over 25 years and wanted to have a place to escape to.
Total relaxation - the biggest decision of each day is which beach to go to or where to eat dinner. We love to sit on our terrace and watch the sunset. There is a small owl who appears on the rooftops at dusk each evening and we wait for him to come. We have great friends who live full time in the area, many Brits but Greeks too. Another favorite activity is walking in the mountains and exploring mountain villages.
