Guestbook comments from the owner

Wir haben 2 wunderbare Wochen hier verbracht. Das Haus liegt in einer sehr ruhigen Wohngegend, ist super eingerichtet und lässt keine Wünsche offen. Besonders die herrlichen Aussichten vom Balkon, von der Terrasse und vom Pool sind fantastisch. Wir haben die Sonnenuntergänge jeden Abend genossen. Es hat an nichts gefehlt. Auch der Besitzer ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ein Mietwagen ist empfehlenswert, um die nähere Umgebung, insbesondere die Mani-Bergdörfer und die Tropfsteinhöhle bei Pirgos Dirou, zu erkunden.

Wir können diese Haus uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.

A wonderfully relaxed holiday in a stunning villa!

  • 5 of 5

There are a lot of villas which look good on the outside but once you get inside, they can be tired, worn, the layout isn't quite right etc. However I cannot say this about the Villa Ialeira. The location is fantastic if you want to just get away from it all. You will need a car as the Villa is located up the hill but as its only 5 mins drive from the beach you don't have the noise from the village throughout the day and night . Once we arrived at the Villa, the views were spectacular. The villa has been extremely well designed with modern fixtures and fittings. The first floor is open plan comprising a kitchen and living area with large balcony facing the sea. The two bedrooms and bathroom with access to the pool are on the ground floor. Absolutely ideal as I have two daughters who like to sleep but a husband who is always up at the crack of dawn. We all know what it's like on holiday with strange beds and disturbed sleep and this villa was a miracle worker. Both bedrooms have air conditioning with solid wood shutters so no noise, no light and cool bedrooms. My husband and i could get up for breakfast on the first floor balcony taking in the most beautiful views, then go downstairs and hit the pool without any children waking up. The pool is stunning and overlooks the sea and at some points almost looks like its an infinity pool. It was kept very clean and was maintained several times whilst we were there. There were also four loungers with pool towels. Bedlinen was white cotton as were the bathroom towels with the maid coming in a further two times during our stay. Overall, I couldn’t fault it. Bliss!!!! Now that is what I call a decent and restful holiday with the family.

Very nice villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent nine days in this beautiful villa, and enjoyed every day. It is located a bit up the hill behind Stoupa, which gives a fantastic view of Messinia Bay. The owner, Akis, met us in Stoupa when we arrived, and gave us a crash course in the local services like super markets and beaches. Akis is very friendly, and was always happy to assist if we needed any help.

The house is beautiful, built in traditional Mani style. The rooms were clean and everything was working perfectly. The living room, kitchen and terrace upstairs was perfect for mornings and late evenings. The shaded terrace on the ground floor, outside the two bedrooms, was nice and cool in the hot afternoons. The pool next to the shaded terrace was frequently in use, and some days I think the kids stayed more in the pool than out of it. We also used the outdoor barbeque a few times to make some delicious souvlaki and pita.

The location was perfect for exploring the Mani peninsula.

Rathimata Villas

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week in this beautiful villa. The villa was very comfortable and well furnished. The views were really something and although you have to hire a car to make staying here possible it was worth it. Evenings on the balcony with the view, beat going out, fine wine was all you needed. The villa was perfect and we would definitely return.

If we had to be picky we would suggest a tray to enable us to carry drinks / snacks downstairs to the pool/dining area and a toaster would have been useful, but they are not complaints just suggestions and so the villa was perfect.

Thank you Akis !!!!

Akis's Villa in Stoupa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are regular visitors to the Pelops but this was the first time we had stayed in Stoupa. It was not obvious to us when booking the villa but it is relatively unusual with the living/dining area on the first floor and the bedrooms on the ground floor. Certainly, having the pool next to the bedrooms was quite useful although the internal steps down the pool might not suit more elderly people and you would need to be careful if you had kids running up and down. The villa is very well presented and we are lacking in none of the amenities we would have expected. Akis was available, when required, and was kind enough to meet us at the local supermarket to guide us in on our arrival day. The road up to the villa (once you come off the main road) is better than many we have experienced where sometimes you feel that you are in the Rally de Greece!

Stoupa is a nice town with plenty of eating places and other services. Being Brits, we sometimes try and avoid our fellow citizens for at least one week in every year, but Stoupa does come across as 'Little England' albeit primarily mature couples (like ourselves) is the order of the day.

The Mani is great although somewhat lacking in some of the more historical opportunities that other parts of the Pelops present and although there are some good ones the overall quality of the beaches, if you prefer the golden variety, are more scare although Stoupa's is certainly acceptable.

One of the features that I really liked about the villa was the sunny and shaded balconies and I certainly spent a few restful hours on the latter and had a few beers on the former!

This was the first time we have booked a villa outside of an inclusive 'package' deal, it will not be the last and next time we stay in Stoupa then I cannot think we will go anywhere than to Akis.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly great holiday at this picturesque villa overlooking the town of Stoupa, celebrating our 10th year anniversary.

We chose the villa after much researching due to the photos and description and its fair to say that being there is even nicer than the photos as the villa is set higher in the mountain than the pictures suggest. There's also a beautiful sunset when the sun sets into the mountains/ sea that you see in the inset picture. The villa is well designed, clean and nicely decorated (no clutter!), with good thought into the lighting design in the living room/ kitchen. Although we came as a couple, the villa would be suitable for a family as well.

The owner Akis is very nice and helpful, he even picked us up from Stoupa when we had car problems which meant him missing the start of the Greece Russia football game!

On the subject of cars, car hire is essential, but don't be put off by driving in Greece as it is not anywhere near as bad as most guides claim it to be, in fact we enjoyed it.

Of the local towns, Kardamyli village (both old and new town) is by far the best place to go and is about 15 minutes drive from the villa. Stoupa is less than 5 minutes from the villa and is a nice place with well priced restaurants, although it is a borderline holiday resort (note Kalogria beach is the better of the two).

We genuinely couldn't fault our stay here and would definitely consider a return to the villa in the future.
