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!

A beautiful traditional stone property in unspoilt region of Greece

5 of 5
We spent a week in the Mani House in August and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The property has been very sympathetically developed with some lovely features and is very well appointed with everything one could need. The pool area is really lovely and we enjoyed spending afternoons relaxing there. It is also really helpful to have the beach and pool towels provided as these do take up considerable space in one's luggage. We didn't know the area at all and were very pleasantly surprised. It hasn't been overdeveloped at all and there are no high rise buildings to be seen, just traditional properties. It is very tranquil and the house has some amazing views, both from outside the bedrooms and, even better, from the roof terrace from which you get 360 views of the gorgeous surrounding countryside with mountain backdrop. I thought the photos on the website didn't show these off to their best as the views are quite a selling point. The nearest village of Agios Nikolaos is very pretty and again pleasantly quiet given that we were there in August. There is a good choice of places to eat and they are all in the harbour with lovely views out to sea. As stated in the details it is a 20-25 minute walk from the property which we did if we were eating out in the evening. The walk back up the track in the dark is more challenging but fine with torches. The beach taverna 10 minutes away is also lovely for a lunch or drink. I would definitely recommend the property and the area to anyone thinking of visiting the Peloponnese. We flew to Athens as there was a better choice of flights but with hindsight would probably use Kalamata even though just one flight a day. The drive from Athens is lovely and scenic but even given the quietness of the roads it still takes a good 3 and a half hours +. All in all a wonderful week.

A very nice villa

5 of 5
The villa was lovely, the bedrooms were an excellent size and it was very clean throughout. We loved sitting out on the shaded terrace and had great fun in the pool. My only criticism was that the kitchen needed more essential utensils and we could have done with a toaster and microwave oven. Otherwise everything was perfect including the lovely village, which had some great restaurants.
