The villa benefits from the cooling summer breezes..

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 36 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.

Why George & Gail Compton chose Stoupa

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sunset Villas are the best in the area in our opinion! The villa was immaculately clean with fresh fruit and a chilled bottle of wine to welcome us. The uninterrupted views are amazing and the sunsets spectacular. We chilled out and revitalised after a hectic year of work, and will definitely be back again very soon!

Great to deal with Gail & George - efficient booking and accurate directions etc., made our arrival a breeze.

Lovely holiday

  • 5 out of 5
My family and mum-in-law enjoyed a lovely week at the Sunset Villa. My young sons very much enjoyed splashing their feet in the pool, and the adults enjoyed the fantastic views. The villa was easily accessible to several day trips and we found ourselves at the beach quite often! We found ourselves surrounded by very friendly folks and many smiles during every outing we took, and the owners and property managers were more than helpful. The beautiful ocean, mountains and sunshine made it very difficult to end our holiday!

Sunset villa

  • 4 out of 5
The property is well named - the sunsets are spectacular over the distant penisular and the views in general are wonderful from its elevated position. The villa is brand new and luxurious although there are still some finishing touches to come - like curtains, blinds or shutters on the bedrooms! The pool is wonderful. Be warned the track up to the villa is rough and very steep and a car is virtually essential. However, this is a great place for a relaxing holiday with lovely hill villages and three very different coastal settlements within easy reach.

Owner's Response: Yes, we did have a rather rural and rough road up to Sunset Villas, but the good news is that at the end of last season - October 2009, the municipality laid a very nice tar road from the main coastal road right up to and past our villas. Access is now very easy.

Such good value for top of the range holiday villa

  • 5 out of 5
What a lovely villa. Everything is new and top quality. The furnishings are very tasteful and you can see that care has been taken when finishing everything.Expense has not been spared here. We had a wonderful week, enjoying the views from the patio and pool. It is amazing how quiet it is and how easy it was to relax, rather than our usual rushed holiday! We will defenitely be back.

Car: recommended

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!
