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.

Wonderful property for a 'get away from it all' break in a beautiful unspoilt area of Greece. Only the two of us but would easily accommodate a larger group due a twin room and a further double room/en-suite in a separate 'tower house' style building. Description was accurate and the owners lovely to deal with. We found the property very clean, fresh and well maintained. The beds were comfy with crisp cotton linen. There was air-conditioning which we didn't use as the April nights were cool enough. We used the wood burning stove a couple of times and there was plentiful log supply. This is great property if you enjoy walking and dont want to use the car too much. You can easily walk to a quiet beach with a couple of tavernas or to the nearest fishing village for general shopping, eating and sight-seeing. The property has loads of really nice outdoor space including a roof terrace which was great for sunbathing and stargazing. Overall we had a fantastic time and wouldn't hesitate to return.
