Make a holiday rental home or villa in Megali Mandinia, Greece your home away from home

Sitting high upon a ridge on the eastern side of the Koskarakas gorge, the small village of Megali Mandinia (sometimes spelt Megali Mantinia) has a population of just 300, making it a perfect destination for those seeking a true slice of rural Greece. Don’t expect any English to be spoken here, but by brushing off your phrase book you will be able to maximize your stay and enjoy a truly authentic Greek village at its finest.

Things to do in Megali Mandinia, Greece

With the village of Megali Mandinia in an elevated position, the views over the Koskarakas gorge and surrounding mountainside are truly stunning. You will find no high-rise developments here – for miles around there is nothing to be seen been unspolit scenery and the blue waters of the sea.

Amenities within the village are unsurprisingly basic. There are three tavernas, which offer authentic local cuisine at a fraction of the price of what you may pay in a more touristic part of the country, as well as a cafe and a couple of small shops. A particularly good option for eating out is Kosteas Anavryti – the oldest tavern in the village, and one that has an extensive menu and a balcony seating area that offers excellent views out over the gorge.

Walking and hiking are particularly enjoyable activities in Megali Mandinia, and you will find that the local area is a mix of olive groves and carefully tended farmland. The centre of the village has a number of old buildings – particularly churches and small chapels, as well as stone lodgings, some of which offer authentic holiday rental options.

Further afield, towns such as Pilos (42km) and Stoupa (28km) make for excellent day trips within the region.

Weather in Megali Mandinia, Greece

The laid-back Greek lifestyle goes hand in hand with the local weather, with a summer average of over 30C, which can reach over 35C on the hottest of days. Winters are mild, and the cooler weather provides an altogether different experience for visitors to Megali Mandinia.

Flights to Megali Mandinia, Greece

Everything perfect except for steps up to upper floor which has no railings. This is dangerous it's been bought back to me because of a friend tragedy with marble steps. Please Stephanie sort this. Otherwise an idyllic beautiful home

Wir haben unseren dreiwöchigen Aufenthalt in der Villa Lena sehr genossen. Sie besteht aus einem das Haus umgebenden, großen, sehr gepflegten Garten mit vielen schattenspendenden Bäumen und der bestens ausgestatteten komfortablen Villa; diese bietet auf zwei Ebenen alles was wir benötigten - einschließlich der Küche, in der wir täglich unsere Mahlzeiten bereiteten. Das Anwesen befindet sich auf einer Klippe zum nahgelegenen Meer und bietet einen wunderbaren Blick auf die Messenische Bucht und Kalamata und die sie umgebenden Gebirgszüge im Hintergrund und abends auf prachtvolle Sonnenuntergänge. 150 m Fußweg zum Steinstrand unterhalb mit nur wenigen, einheimischen, Badenden, das Wasser einladend sauber und warm. An der Straße, an die das Anwesen angrenzt, nahe gelegen zwei preiswerte Food Markets (mit Metzger) für den täglichen Bedarf, Bäcker, Apotheke und Arzt sind auch nicht weit. Der Standort eignet sich gut für Sightseeing und Shopping in Kalamata und für verschiedenste Erkundungstouren in der weiteren Umgebung. Die Eigentümer der Villa, Panos und Lena (wohnhaft in Athen) standen uns telefonisch während unseres Aufenthalts bei verschiedenen Problemen mit Rat und Tat hilfreich zur Seite. Panos war auch so liebenswürdig, uns vom Flughafen abzuholen.

The owners could not have been kinder and more helpful and this is our second visit so much did we enjoying staying there last year. The house is within easy reach of beaches, tavernas and Kalamata.
