Lovely villa and beautiful views, would highly recommend!
The villa Phoebe was exactly like the photos, but with a bonus of a beautiful view wherever you looked. There are plenty of places to eat in the surrounding areas, but if you choose to stay in and cook, the kitchen was very well equipped just like a home from home. It is situated in a very peaceful area and the outside areas and pool mean that you don't have to go anywhere and be completely lazy!
Overall, we would recommend this property and the beautiful areas surrounding it, to anyone that enjoys a peaceful, relaxing holiday. We will definitely be returning next year.
Thank you Akis (the owner) for being so welcoming, look forward to seeing you again!
A wonderful, relaxing holiday in a beautiful, quiet location.
The lovely house was everything we expected; thoughtfully designed, well equipped and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed being there so much that we didn't venture out as much as we'd planned and dined on the terrace most evenings while enjoying the stunning views and glorious sunsets. The nearest supermarket (2km) has everything you need and there are plenty of bars and restaurants in Stoupa and nearby Nikolaos. Akis was a great host and helped us settle in quickly. We are sure to return sometime.
Panoramic views and privacy
Villa Phoebe was in a wonderful location with an amazing view and a great sense of privacy.
Akis was very helpful and welcoming. The Villa was well equipped and decorated.
A perfect holiday in Villa Phoebe
We stayed at Villa Phoebe Sept 2015 for just over 1 week. The villa is in a beautiful location tucked away on a lovely (but steep!) hillside with no passing traffic. As soon as we arrived we immediately felt relaxed here. It Villa itself has great facilities including wifi, aircon and a washing machine. Both bedrooms had views across the Stoupa coastline which was lovely to wake up too. The whole villa was spotlessly clean and faultless. Stoupa has lovely restaurants/beaches and is the perfect place for a quiet relaxing break. Akis was a great host and we will definitely be returning next year! Thank you Akis, Brigden Family.
Beautiful views, stylish property, very clean!
We had a great time in Villa Phoebe. The owner Akis is very helpful but doesn't bother you. The views are stunning. The house is very clean! Fresh towels and cleaning every tuesday. Very nicely decorated. Good airco without paying extra. We will be back for sure!
The perfect Mani villa for sunset viewing
Villa Phoebe is a perfect base for a holiday in the mani peninsula. It's locations makes for fabulous views of the Stoupa coastline as well as beautiful sunsets. The villa itself is lovely - clean, spacious, modern and even has a washing machine - a nice bonus. The pool is not large enough for exercising, but great for cooling down and chilling. The built in barbecue is great to use. We spent most of our time around Kalogria beach, but also spent a day going south to see the Diros caves. A nice new find was Agios Nikolous - a lovely village to the left of Stoupa as you look down from the villa. All in all a great holiday experience.
