Overview

Agios Nikolaos House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, BOTH EN-SUITE. Sleeps 4.

Built in the traditional style of a Mani Tower House. Situated on a 900 square metre plot amidst Olive Trees and surrounded by a traditional style stone wall, the property is in a new development. There are two bedrooms, one is double bedded with EN-SUITE BATHROOM, the other is twin-bedded with EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM. Both bedrooms have French windows which open onto to a balcony with superb views to the sea. The open plan lounge/diner has French windows which open onto a covered veranda (this offers a cool retreat in the summer months). From the veranda there are two paths through the garden, one leads to the BBQ area and PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL (The pool is 9 x 4 metres). The pool is normally filled in May and maintained until October. There is a cold water shower at the pool. The other path leads to a door in the wall at the bottom of the property, this leads to a side road/path which is a 10 minute walk to the sand/shingle beach at Pantazi.

AIRPORTS: Kalamata Airport: Charter flights operate between May and October. Approx 1 hr 15 minutes drive.

Athens Airport: 'Scheduled' and 'No Frills' carriers operate throughout the year. A pleasant drive through spectacular scenery which depending on traffic, takes approx 3.5 hours.

We can recommend car hire/taxi companies.

OTHER ATTRACTIONS: APPROX. DRIVING TIMES:

Under 30 minutes: Kardamyli, dominated by the fortified complex of the Mourtzinoi-Troupakides which is home to

the museum.

1 Hour: Kalamata, the Peloponnese capital.

2 Hours: The ruined Byzantine city of Mystras (Sparta).

2-3 Hours: Monemvassia / Olympia.

3.5 Hours: Nafplio, the first capital of modern Greece / The ancient theatre of Epidavros / Ancient Corinth

and the Corinth Canal are all within a 3.5 hours drive.

GUEST BOOK: Well here we are back in miserable old England after a delightfully sunny week at your wonderful property. We all thought the property was one of the best we had ever stopped in and was situated in a most beautiful part of Greece. The thing we all seemed to appreciate most besides the property being perfect was that the area was mostly unspoilt, friendly and was very Greek – like it used to be a long time ago. Nick Grimshaw, May 2006.

I have to say we had a wonderful time staying at your excellent property. The house and pool and facilities were perfect, everything we needed and wanted was available. The Mani area was beautiful, just what we were looking for, wild, remote and away from the crowds, the wild life we encountered was diverse to say the least.

The beaches and towns were beautiful, we ate out most nights and afternoons, the food was plentiful and fresh and people were very friendly. Ian Byrne, May 06.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We did indeed enjoy very much our stay in your house. Agios Nikolaos is still a little paradise!



We found the house very nice, clean and well appointed. The garden is really very enjoyable and the pool is fine, large enough and well designed. So really everything was up to our expectations.



We still love this area and surely we shall be back some day

'Everything we could have wished for.'

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in the Mani, despite the rather unsettled weather in mid-May. What a stunning area it is; beautiful views and scenery, super people, and the house itself, which reflected quality, had everything we could have wished for. The swimming-pool was excellent. All very peaceful and a real break.

We did some testing walks in the Taygetos mountains, and also drove down to the south calling in at Gerolimenas for lunch, driving up the east side of the Mani peninsular and across to Areopolis on the way back. We loved visiting the little villages in the hills, and were particularly taken with Platsa, Thalames and Proastia – all of which are a few miles from the villa.

Foneas cove near the start of one of the two walks to Proastia (the one nearest to Stoupa) was a delight. The the sandy beach at Stoupa was a pleasant surprise and lunch at Patrick's, also at Stoupa, was very good. We ate a few times at the restaurant with mauve tables in picturesque Agios Nikolaos and found it be very good value, and the family who ran it charming. They also spoke good English! We went to Friganos on our last evening which, as is stated in the book of words at the villa, is rather more grand.

It could be said that although Stoupa is doubtless popular because of its sandy beach, that does not necessarily make it more touristy, merely busier. Maybe to some that is the same thing. The point is that there was less evidence of ‘tat’ than feared. And Pantazi beach ten minutes’ walk away from the villa was more beguiling than anticipated partly because to the rear it is enhanced by a larch and eucalyptus grove.

It may be a helpful warning to mention that the footpaths are not well marked by either the way-marking signs – or on the ground – apart from the those leading up to the Viros gorge from the charming town of Kardamyli.

Finally, in general, the towns, villages and beaches were on a smaller scale than expected which, if anything, added to their appeal.

First class Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best holidays in greece we have ever had! we have been visiting Greece for the last twenty odd years and have had some memorable holidays, however with some of the apartments we have had, we were lucky to get a shower curtain in the bathroom, this property not only has a shower cubicle but also a bath.....the house was spotless all through, very well equipped and in a fantastic position, very peaceful with lovely views, we had a few meals out in Stoupa, Pefkos Restaraunt was very nice but I loved the charm of 'Ag Nik' very laid back and relaxing.

The drive from Kalamata was easy following the detailed instructions that Anne emailed to us and the scenary was amazing.

We found the prices in the supermarkets quite expensive for every day items so for families it may be worth packing cereals, biscuits ect.

I will not be recommending this property to my friends or relatives because then it might not be available when I want to visit again, which I hope will be very soon.

Repeat Visitor

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to the property and it never disappoints! As soon as we walk in the door we feel completely relaxed. It is a lovely house with stunning mountain and sea views. The garden and pool area is beautifully landscaped. If you can drag yourself away from the house, the charming fishing village of Agios Nikoloas is only a 5 minute drive away with several restaurants to choose from. The surrounding area is ideal for walking & cycling. We normally visit in May but have also stayed here in September which was equally as enjoyable. If you are looking for a restful holiday in a lovely location then this is it!

Owner's Response: Although early season guests are often able to make full use of the pool & garden and peak season visitors couldn't be without it, for many visitors in May, June & September the 'out-door' living is a real treat at that time of the year. Many guests stay put around the pool even though the beach is only 10 minutes walk away. The nearest tavernas are also within walking distance but it's very convenient to make use of the BBQ and outdoor dining area.
