About the property

Idyllic holiday home with double and single bed, 10 minute walk to the beach

Idyllic holiday home with double and single bed, 10 minute walk to the beach

This charming little house is open plan with organically shaped stone walls and floors, and has a slightly raised sleeping area. The quaint bathroom has a bathtub, while outside at the back there is a private terrace with an open air shower. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering, and there is a table for al fresco dining under the shade of the huge old oak tree. Hammocks swing from the branches, offering the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful sea views out towards the island of Kythira.

For those who want to enjoy a creative holiday, there is the opportunity to attend a ceramics seminar in the garden workshop, and leave for home with your own home-made souvenir!

The beach in Skoutari is ideal for young children as it is sandy and the water is very shallow. For more adventurous swimmers there is also excellent snorkelling around the rocks and hidden coves with beautiful pebbles of various colours.

There are various churches to visit around Skoutari, one of which is the abandoned monastery of 'Ag. Sotiras', the Church of the Redeemer, which is reached by following a herb-scented path through ancient olive groves. If you prefer more than just the solitary beauty of this place, then on 6 August, this church opens its doors to celebrate its saint’s day.

On a culinary note, you can enjoy delicious lamb chops while gazing out over the breathtaking view from Nicoletta’s tavern on nearby hilltop Drosopigi, . A few miles in the opposite direction in Ageranos, Vasilis and Marie-José offer unusual dutch/greek cuisine. Hearty greek home cooking can be enjoyed at Maria’s in Vathi. You can try excellent and affordable fish at Gialos on Mavrovouni beach, and even in Skoutari there are two simple fish tavernas, whose unmissable special is 'Garides Saganaki' (king prawns in tomato and feta cheese).

Skoutari is a charming fishing village in the legendary Mani / South Peloponnese. The golden sandy beach is only 10 minutes walk from the cottage and there are views north to the majestic Taygetos mountain range. The drinking water comes from a nearby spring. There is basic shopping in the village, and bread is delivered free. For more extensive shopping you can drive 15kms in either direction to Gythio or Areopolis.

From here you can make excursions to the largest sea caves in Europe, just near Pirgos Dirou; Gythion's offshore island 'Kranai', famous for its legend of Paris and Helen; or further afield the rocky outpost 'Monemvasia', with its winding streets and its acropolis. Or for the more active, there is some of the best windsurfing in Greece off the beach of Mavrouvouni.

About Angelika Fritzsche

Hello my dear guests! Now let me tell you something about myself... please check my website

All my life stands under the star of inspiration and creating ceramic items.

Angelika Fritzsche purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Angelika Fritzsche chose Lakonia

Wellanidia the little stonecottage under the old a lot of love for details it was built in a handicraft way and changed over the years like the tree amazed and trapped by these walls which were raised even out of old church stones. Skoutari I found when I came here first time for holidaysto the Peloponnese 1987. I travelled all around the peninsula but here in Skoutari in the end I was sitting with lovely 23 years old on the light sand beach watching the turquoise water with tears in my eyes because I had to leave again for germany.....

What makes this cottage unique

Your holidays in the middle of nature gives you a longlasting feeling of relaxation which you take home with you.

Een gezellig huisje voor een ontspannen vakantie.

  • 4 of 5

Het was heerlijk toeven in de woning van Angela. Gezellig van binnen, en heerlijk vrij buiten op het terras onder de mooie eik met een prachtig uitzicht. Angela is erg sympathiek en kan je van alles vertellen als je wil, maar dringt zich nooit op. De woning en het terras liggen naast het in stijl gebouwde huis van Angela(met woontoren!) in een weelderig groene omgeving. Met een autootje ben je zo bij de mooiste plekken en wandelen in de omgeving is ook lekker. De Mani is heel afwisselend, soms ruig, met steile bergen en soms lieflijk. De mensen in de omgeving zijn erg vriendelijk. Het eten is lekker en niet duur, in het voorjaar bloeit er van alles en ruikt het heerlijk kruidig. We zouden er zo weer heen willen !

Traumhaus in bezaubernder Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Hier stimmt wirklich alles; die Realität ist noch schöner als die Bilder auf der Homepage:

Das wunderschön ausgebaute, Atmosphäre und Behaglichkeit ausstrahlende Steinhäuschen.

Die herrliche, knorrige, uralte Eiche, die die große, einladende Terrasse (mit einem atemberaubenden Blick auf die Bucht) überspannt. - Auch eine vorzügliche Ausstattung und Komfort fehlen nicht.

Die nähere und weitere Umgebung ermöglicht zudem interessante Ausflüge.

Wir hatten leider nur eine Buchungslücke von einer Woche "ergattern" können - und kommen bestimmt wieder.

Herzlichen Dank an die sehr nette Vermieterin.

Owner's Response: Den herzlichen Dank gebe ich gerne zurück an Ute und Erich Hoffmann. Sie waren das beste Beispiel für Gäste wie ich sie mir wünsche; nämlich einfach Leute, die das Häuschen und den Platz so lieben, wie ich selbst. Dabei geht mir das Herz auf und es ist mir der schönste Lohn!

Kleines,ruhiges Häuschen....

  • 5 of 5

Kein TamTam, keine Bespassung, kein All-Inklusive Blödsinn.

Dafür ein einfaches Häuschen mit tollem Blick und sehr hohem Erholungswert.

Der Frühling dort ist eine Augenweide....alles blüht und grünt....und..Nordeuropäer können auch schon im April vom menschenleeren Strand ins Meer hüpfen.

Ein Idealer Ausgangspunkt um die Gegend und die nächstgelegenen Orte und die Leute kennenzulernen.

Wunderschönes Steinhaus mit sehr netter Vermieterin!

  • 5 of 5

Das Steinhäuschen liegt ganz bezaubernd auf einer leichten Anhöhe am Rande des Dorfes. Man schaut aufs Meer, kann entspannen und wenn man will mit der charmanten Angelika plaudern.

Zum entspannen ideal!

Fantastisch

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschönes kleines Ferienhaus (Anbau zum Anwesen von Angelika Fritsche). Herrliche Lage mit Blick auf die Bucht von Skoutari, liebevoll und stilecht eingerichtet mit allem was man braucht.

Die Vermieterin ist sehr freundlich, zurückhaltend aber immer ansprechbar wenn es um Tipps für Ausflüge oder Restaurants geht. Sie betreibt eine Töpferwerkstatt und bietet Kurse an.

Skoutari ist wunderschön, das Meer glasklar mit herrlichen Stränden und die Landschaft der Mani eignet sich für Wanderungen und erlebnisreiche Ausflüge.

Ein ruhiger Ort zum entspannen und genießen. Absolut empfehlenswert!

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für die traumhafte Bewertung liebe Sandra und Jochen! Zwei Gäste wie man sich sie nur wünschen kann....das großzügige "Auffüllen" erlebe ich eher selten...DANKE! Nur zu erwähnen, dass das Cottage (völlig autonom) zuerst da war und mein Haus später unterhalb errichtet wurde. Beide Gebäude verbindet eine freistehende hohe Mauer mit Durchgang, die den manchmal starken Westwind abbremst.
