Notre séjour à la villa Sofia s'est parfaitement bien passé ! Nous avons loué la maison et le studio pour notre grand fils. Et c'était des vacances de rêve. La piscine avec sa vue incroyable est très agréable à toutes les heures de la journée. La maison est très propre, très bien équipée, les lits sont très bons et la climatisation marche très bien... Bref, nous recommandons fortement !!!!
We stayed in Villa Sofia one of the 3 villas located up the hill above Stoupa. The Villa is perfect, with amazing sun sets and views across the sea. The location was great for exploring the Mani and it was possible to drive further afield to places such as Olympia and ancient Messene, all accessable in a day using the good roads in the area.. The villa itself is well equiped and cleaned regularly. It has beautiful gardens, a reasonable sized pool ( cleaned daily) and offers privacy from the next door villa with good hedge screening. The resort of Stoupa is perfect for families or couples with many places to eat and drink and 2 lovely beaches. A great place to stay and explore the Peloponnese.
