Elea villa resides in the heart of Messinian Mani, in the suburbs of the famous village of Kardamili and within the village of Agios Nikolaos. Our wonderful stone- built villa has been constructed with materials traditional to the aesthetics of the Mani region. The overall result provides the guest with a feeling of an upper class rural life.
The view from Elea Villa is amazing, unique in the entire region of Mani. In the south lies the blue sea and the picturesque harbour of St. Nicholas, with its small fishing boats tied up in ropes. In the north one can see the breathtaking view of mountain Taygetos, one of the highest mountains in Greece. The combination of both mountain and sea view makes for a fascinating landscape.
Elea Villa is located in a privileged spot in the Mani region. Hidden in the heart of the olive grove provides both privacy and seclusion to the visitor who wants to relax away from the hustle of the popular areas of Mani.
Elea Villa is situated only 500 metres away from one of the most beautiful beaches of Mani, the sandy beach of Pantazi, with bright Gray sand, dotted with white and Gray pebbles and a couple of Greek traditional restaurants “tavernas”, surrounding the area. A little further away (3 km away to be exact) is Stoupa beach, with its turquoise clean waters is undoubtedly one the most popular destination of Mani region. Any list of beach destinations in Mani would be incomplete without the mention of the trendy) beach of Kalogria, a sandy swimming destination where both locals and tourists favour to swim, eat and play water sports.
Elea Villa is approximately 190 m2 and has two master bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, a bedroom with twin beds and an en suite bathroom, and two double sofa beds, one located in the same room as the twin beds and one in the living room. Overall, Elea Villa can accommodate up to 9 guests. On the ground floor of the villa is the open living room & dining room area. A large sofa and armchairs can be found in front of the fireplace. A few feet away is a fully equipped kitchen with full size refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, coffee maker and all the necessary equipment. The villa has three (3) bathrooms and one (1) WC.
Elea Villa is situated in the middle of an Olive grove and shares a large (10m x 5m) swimming pool and a barbecue area with its twin villa the “Stone villa”.

We could not have asked for more. Maria was very helpful and provided many site seeing adventures, places to eat and shop. Exceeded our expectations
Thank you for an amazing experience in Greece.
We had a wonderful week in the Elea Villa. We were contacted shortly before arrival with directions and tips for the local area and welcomed by Maria when we did get there, plus a hamper of local/traditional products.
The kitchen is well stocked with almost everything you need (salt/pepper would be useful to avoid purchasing them for a week's stay!) and finished to a high standard with washing machine, dishwasher, coffee maker etc. Knives were sharp and good for food preparation, not always the case in villas in our experience!
The pool at the villa is great. A good size, warm and a very pleasant environment for kids and adults. It is shared with one other villa on the property, so not completely private, but not an issue in our experience. The views of the surrounding mountains are breathtaking!
Inside, the house has large bedrooms, good bathrooms for each and effective air con inside when you wish to use it.
Then there is the location, which is spot on. Closest supermarket is just a 10 min drive away. Pantazi is the local beach, 500m down the hill, and offers great swimming and a friendly cafe / taverna.
We found Agios Nikolaos to be the nicest of the villages in the area with great tavernas and without the crowds of Stoupa or Kardamyli. Elli's is particularly recommended for fresh food and friendly service. Vesuvius had the best views and really helpful service.
We explored a little from the house (Limeni close to Areopolis has lovely swimming and a good lunch!) but found loads to do in the area. The sandy (and busy) beach in Stoupa is well worth visiting, but our highlight was the rocky beach at Foneas between Stoupa and Kardamyli - great fun for the children and relatively free of the crowds.
Overall, a really top class holiday villa and a lovely week in an amazing part of Greece. We would wholeheartedly recommend it!
I stayed at this Villa with my family for two weeks. The pictures don't do it justice. The villa was as described. The pool was wonderful and the water was kept clean and sparkling. The views were amazing and the beach(es) nearby was great. Lots to do and see in an area of Greece that offers more culture than some of the very 'touristy' islands. The owner and manager were very prompt to answer our questions and/or concerns. I would recommend this villa to travellers who want to enjoy a quiet peaceful location but still close to amenities and attractions.
