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.

Places to visit on holiday in Megali Mandinia, Greece

More amenities can be found at nearby Kalamata (15km), including some excellent restaurants along the picturesque beachfront area. Kalamata is an altogether busier option than Megali Mandinia, being a bustling port that attracts a fair amount of tourists. 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

Despite its rural location, holiday accommodation in Megali Mandinia is easy to access, as the village is situated just 18km from Kalamata (KLX) International Airport. Thomas Cook and Viking Airlines operate direct services from London Gatwick and Manchester. There is a bus service connecting the two locations, but the use of a hire car is strongly recommended for making the most of your holiday in Megali Mandinia.

Spacious 2 bedroom flat in convenient location.

5 of 5
We stayed for 2 weeks in December 2017. The flat is well located for access to both the sea front and town centre. South facing balcony and patio area accessed from both living area and kitchen. Quiet area. Good central heating, welcome in December. Comfortable beds and sofas. All you need in the kitchen. Everything in good order. And very warm welcome from the family who had provided necessities (coffee, milk, fruit etc) so no need to rush out immediately if arriving late. Easy parking in the street. Well-lit entrance areas. Can certainly recommend this property. We hope to return.

Beautiful and Historic Stone House

4 of 5
We really enjoyed the seclusion and the peaceful ambience of the old stone building. There are quiet courtyards and a high balcony to spend time outside. The kitchen is well-equipped, the house simply and comfortably furnished and though off the grid so no wifi/tv, there are books to read and good maps provided. Although at the end of a small, quiet road, it was really easy to visit local beaches, tavernas, supermarkets and the nearby walking trails. Local contacts Lina and her husband were very friendly and welcoming. Point to note, you will need to provide your own drinking water. All in all a great place to stay to make the most of this delightful part of Greece.
