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.

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

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.

Beautiful cottage, beautifully kept!

5 of 5
We had a wonderful few days here (family of 4). It's a lovely building, inside and out, in an immaculately kept garden. The cottage is very well stocked (kitchen utensils, bedding etc) and there are lovely touches everywhere. I recommend this extremely highly- far and away the best self-catering property I've ever stayed in.
