Aghios Nicolaos, Messinia, Mani Greece - "Still Alive! - Romantic and Peaceful Greek Fishing Village"

Aghios Nicolaos (also spelt Agios Nikolaos) in Messinian Mani is perfect for couples and families alike. The beach of Pantazi is a flat 1km walk - there are bicycles to hire if you prefer or take the Beach Bus which travels through the village and around to nearby beaches and villages all day during the season. Beaches are anything from stony through to silky sand. Pantazi is gritty sand. One can also swim from the village itself from Vesuvios Taverna via a ladder. You don't need to partake of anything at the village restaurant, but after a swim, it is hard to resist! There are at least 6 other tavernas in the village, so you can have a change every evening. There is nothing much to do here except eat and watch the world go by.

Aghios is a living Greek village - its harbour full of fishing and pleasure boats. You can be sure of a good fish meal any evening. An internet cafe - if you need to keep in touch and a cafe with free Wireless Internet connection if you bring your laptop. There are two small shops for general provisions and a butcher has just opened up, too. With the vast Taigetos Mountains falling down to the crystal clear and unbelievably blue waters below; it really is like a picture postcard. It's the kind of place you thought no longer existed but here it is - magical!

Things to do in Agios Nikolaos, Greece

There are also several interesting landmarks that are worth a look. The picturesque lagoon at Lake Voulismeni is in the middle of the city centre, and is surrounded by many delightful cafes and restaurants, where you can meet with friends or simply relax with a drink.

Atmospheric, comfortable, traditional village house.

5 of 5
Our week at Casa Sophia in mid May was just perfect. I don't think we've ever rented a more well-equipped house; nor a prettier one. Our hosts were great. They were available for directions and inspiration for trips around the area but we were otherwise unaware that they live downstairs. Pyrgos is a very traditional village complete with friendly cafe/bar just a short stroll from the house. We loved the terrace; amazing starry skies and sunny lazy afternoons. Lovely.

Delightful villa in a lovely town

5 of 5
We visited for 10 days in April and had the pleasure of great weather, sunny but not too hot, and not too busy so we were able to enjoy the areas great hiking, biking and beaches in perfect conditions. People of this area are extraordinarily welcoming and one reason why we had such a delightful time. The villa itself was perfect for us and our two teenagers with plenty of room inside and out for everyone to chill out, but cosy in evening around the open fire as it was quite cool in the evenings. It was a wonderfully relaxing 10 days and we'd highly recommend both the villa and the area.
