We are located in the seaside village of Stoupa, 40 minutes from Kalamata and 2.30 hours from Athens. Stoupa is the Messinia’s most famous tourist resort. The homonymous beach Stoupa and Kalogria beach attract tourists thanks to the cleanliness of their waters, the natural beauty and their excellent coasts. Our complex is only 1.5 km from Stoupa beach.
The village is relatively new and spreads to the foothills of Mount Taygetos, combining mountain and sea. Green and blue. A live painting that has it all. And it offers everything. Peace and relaxation. Tours and fun. From Stoupa you can tour to the surrounding areas and get to know the beauties of the Peloponnese.
But if you feel itchy feet, Maniatiko Village could also serve as an ideal base for exploring Mani – one of Greece’s most historic areas. The long coastline, enjoying natural shade from the tamarisk and pine trees, hides some of Peloponnese’s most renowned beaches: besides Stoupa and Kalogria, there is cozy Ritsa, Delfinia – where sand alternates with pebbles -, untouched Foneas, picturesque Pantazi, secluded Kalamitsi, and wild Katafygi.
