Hurray! A new road!: We now have a new tarred road leading from the main coastal road to our villa, which was laid by the municipality at the end of the 2009 season. Previous guests commented that the road to our villa was difficult, but now we are happy to say that this is a thing of the past!
Although a car is recommended, the road makes for smoother driving access and an easier walk to Aghios Nikolaos should you desire it.

About George & Gail Compton
I am born in Ireland and educated in the UK but have lived abroad for many years. George & I have been married 38 years and will retire soon to Stoupa. We fell in love with the area on holiday years ago and decided to build Sunset Villas on a very unique piece of land from which the sunsets were magnificent....hence the name.
George & Gail Compton purchased this Villa in 2008
Why George & Gail Compton chose Messenia
The property, at 85Meters elevation, enjoys 180 degree, uninterrupted views of the Messinian Bay in front, and the majestic Taygetos mountains at the back. The very first time that I sat on the grass on what was an undeveloped piece of land, I fell in love with the view and felt totally at peace. I knew that this could be a very special place to build our dream. I was right!
What makes this Villa unique
We built in the traditional stone style, which is unique to the area, and blends in with the surrounding landscape. Sitting on the patio during the day the infinity pools seem to flow into the sea below and the quietness of the area lets you just relax and forget all those daily pressures. Evenings are amazing when you sit with a glass of wine watching whilst the sun sets - each night giving you a different and unique show of colour ranging from pink to purple to orange. You'll see what I mean for yourself!

Relaxing holiday in a beautiful villa with stunning views
The villa is perfect for a relaxing holiday, it is well maintained, clean and airy. The facilities are very good and we were glad of the bottle of water, wine and fresh fruit on arrival.
The villa has the most spectacular views over the two nearest villages - Agios Nikolaos and Stoupa, and as the name suggests each evening we were treated to a lovely sunset.
My only criticism is that the approach to the villa is, for a short distance, on a stone track which is very rough in places - thank goodness we did not meet another car! A car is essential to be able to enjoy the area.
On a positive note the nearest fishing village of Agios Nikolaos is delightful, very pretty and comes to life in the evening. We enjoyed a coastal walk between here and Stoupa which takes just under an hour.
Overall thank you for making our first holiday to this area a very pleasant one.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed our Villa and our beautiful area.
Regarding the road, which was damaged in the storm last year, the good news is that the road leading up from the coastal road is now finished and tarred, and connected to our road, and our road will shortly be a cement surface.
We'd love to be able to welcome you back some time in the future.
Warm regards to you all.
The house was wonderful and perfect for our needs: very comfortable, amazing view, beautiful infinity pool. The surroundings are peaceful and quite. The area is lovely and varying and there are many places to discover. We really enjoyed everything!
Thank you for taking the time to write your lovely review. We hope that the extra day that you added on to your stay made the difference to your holiday. It was great to have you as our guests and look forward to seeing you again in the future!
Beautiful villa in a lovely part of Greece
Wonderful villa in a lovely location. Our family of 5 enjoyed a truly relaxing 2 week holiday here. The local beach at Kologria was a favourite, along with a huge choice of fantastic restaurants in Stoupa and Kardamili. Our top tip is house wine by the carafe whether its on the menu or not - it was always good. And the occasional cocktail at the 360 Bar in Stoupa. Renting a boat for half a day was great and the Diros caves at Areopoli was a good day out, but relaxing by the pool was a good day in and we had quite a few of those. Easy 3 hr drive from Athens. Charmingly Greek last 20 yards of road up to the villa, but that's what hire cars are for. Perfect.
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to write your review. It's so nice to get feedback from our guests and it's even nicer for future guests to be able to see your top tip.... We enjoyed hosting your lovely family and hope that we will be able to welcome you all again in the future. Yammas!
Fabulous villa with amazing sunsets
The villa is in a great location though there are not really any restaurants to walk to, however there are plenty a very short drive away. The rooms are a good size and very well furnished with excellent air con. The infinity pool is wonderful and it was bliss to admire the view whilst cooling down in the water. The view from the terrace is spectacular and the sunsets every evening really made the holiday. There are plenty of sights reasonably close to the villa but it was an easy day trip driving to places such as Olympia and Athens.
I would highly recommend this villa , we had a wonderful holiday.
Thank you for taking the time to review our villa and thank you for recommending us.. We strive to give you a "home away from home". We are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday and hope to welcome you again in the future!

The Peloponnese is the most southern part of mainland Greece. This beautiful green peninsula plays host to almost every tourist who comes to Greece because most of Greece's important and imposing ancient sites are found here. Besides ancient monuments such as Olympia and Epidavros, the Peloponnese also serves as Greece's market garden and centre for olives, olive oil and wine production.
Many of our guests now choose to fly into Athens and hire a car from there. The new motorway starting directly from Athens airport, bypassing the city and through to Kalamata has shortened the drive from 4 hours to between 2.5 – 3 hours. All the winding mountain roads have been bypassed via tunnels through the mountains. You still see the beautiful scenery, but the slow pace behind busses and trucks has been eliminated. One of the nicest parts of the journey is to stop at Korinthos, looking at the canal and sometimes seeing a ship or a yacht pass under the bridge as you stand overhead and watch.
The dramatic Messinian Bay coastline is filled with hidden coves, beaches and amazing expanses of clear blue water , all backed by the Taygetos mountain range. On the beaches you will find for hire; sunbeds & umbrellas, pedalos, kayaks and small motor boats The area enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate .On average the sun shines for 3,000 hours per year. In July it is not uncommon to find temperatures reaching 40 degrees on same days, often cooled by the summer breezes called the 'Melteni' winds. From June to August rainfall is rare, The best way to explore this picturesque area is to hire a car and adventure!
