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.
