The outside area and surrounding olive grove was stunning, as was the swimming pool - much enjoyed by our two grandchildren. We were very impressed by all the detailed information provided both before our stay and in the Villa by Sonia, the owner. She covered everything we needed. Stoupa is a really lovely place very family orientated and hopefully we will return again. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Villa.

It is located in a very quiet area, especially the calm atmosphere of the beach invites to relax. From the house we had a gorgeous view to the sea and a very nice path led us down to the beautiful beach in a few minutes every day. The house was very well equipped and the owners do their very best to keep it in a very good condition. Moreover, Pam and Christos were friendly and informed us about local sites, nice restaurants and other highlights. All in all we would definitely recommend to spend your holidays at this marvellous place and we hope to return next summer!! Fam. Moling from Austria
