Is this your kind of holiday?: Maybe we can tell you why we like Villa To Kyma and it's location in Stoupa so much. We wanted to be somewhere where we could experience the feeling of freedom and authenticity. Being in an olive grove in a house built of natural stone was a good start. The view added the final touch. Of course we also wanted to enjoy some of the village life without sitting in a car too long. The beach is close by. Our children are teenagers and they can go to the beach and into town on their own. We like Stoupa, and also Agios Nikolaos, for the scenery and the friendly Greek people, especially to children. The towns are lively. They attract families, sun lovers, hikers, pensioners etc from various nationalities, including Greeks themselves. English is spoken everywhere in Stoupa. We have tried to equip the villa in such a way as to make your holiday enjoyable and to make you feel at home. And we are very interested in hearing your reactions!

My name is Sonia Farrar and I live in the Netherlands. In 2005 we were looking for a holiday home for our family. When we bought Villa To Kyma in beautiful Stoupa it still needed a lot of work! But over the years we have lovingly worked and added to the villa making it our much loved family home.
Sonia Farrar purchased this villa in 2005
We chose to buy in Stoupa for various reasons. For starters it's in a beautiful part of the world. We enjoy hiking and mountain biking. But we also like to go to a restaurant for a meal and to a lively kafenio for a drink. There are old tower houses and churches to explore, caves to go in, just things you stumble upon if you get off the beaten track.
The villa is located within walking distance of Stoupa. When we bought the house we wanted to surround ourselves with nature (we live in a city in Holland). But we also like to leave the quiet and meet up with other people. Besides, in 2005 our children were still small. When they grew up we wanted them to be able to have their own social life without having to depend on us driving them everywhere. So now they walk into Stoupa or cycle to Kalogria beach or to Aghios Nikolaos. If they can prise themselves away from the pool that is ;)
Excellent Villa, fully equipped and very clean. Amazing views from the balcony. Amazing pool, the best we have had on any holiday. The kids loved it. A 20 minute walk to Stoupa beach and Taverna's. Not the best road with younger children to walk down although there is a safer route which is great to use during the day across the olive grove behind the villa. We used the local taxi company which was reliable and cheap as we did not hire a car. We visited other villages using the taxi service too. Lots to see in the area and Sonia has lots of information and helpful advice at hand. Stoupa has many excellent restaurants. A wonderful place for families with a safe beach. Everyone was friendly. The vibe is very laid back, just what we were looking for. Will definitely return.
Fabulous villa, just as lovely as photos. Beautiful villa with stunning views of mountains and sea, especially stunning views from upper balcony and so peaceful. Very well equipped, lovely decor. Lovely outdoor dining space with plenty of outdoor furniture and lovely pool, lit at night and kept spotlessly clean. We didn't have a car but managed the walk to beach and supermarket about 15 minutes each way for both. Supermarket delivers and gives you lift back too. This is one of the best villas we have stayed in and we will definitely return.
This was the perfect property for our family of 5 (including 3 children under 9). Excellently maintained, extremely well appointed, beautiful setting with stunning views and ideal location to visit Stoupa and Agios Nikolaos daily. We totally fell in love with both the villa and the area.
This was our second stay at Villa to Kyma. We fell even more in love with the villa and the unbelievably lovely seaside village of Stoupa.
Our second trip to Stoupa uncovered more hidden gems in the town and allowed us to further explore the surrounding towns and beaches. You could easily spend a month here and be left wanting more.
The villa is fantastic with everything you could want. The pool is kept in perfect condition and Sonia was once again responsive, enthusiastic and helpful.
I am already looking forward to our trip next year.
We stayed 2 weeks in villa to Kyma and it was fantastic. The house is very comfortable and the pool is great. Our grown up children stayed for 10 days with us and they also had a great time.
Having a drink at Enigma later in the evening was a goes place for them. I walked every morning to the bakery (30 minutes in total to get back to the house)
The porch upstairs is a great to sit in the evening, watch the sunset and have a late drink.
We walked to Stoupa when we went to the restaurants, but the dinners at the large outdoor table were also great.
The coast path to Agios Nikolaos is good for walking but also for them who want to run.
We hiked a lot in the nearby area, also Kardamili. We visited the caves of Pirgos Dirou and went to Gythio. Renting a canoe at Stoupa beach is also nice. Before we came to Stoupa we travelled around at Athens and the Peloponnesus.
To Kyma was a great place to relax for all of us.
This is a beautifully presented villa which is extremely well equipped and very comfortable. It met all our needs and more, particularly as the garden and pool area is generously laid out among well established flowering shrubs and olive trees. The pool itself was one of the best we have had in a rental villa. The house is set within olive groves and so from the garden all you can see are olive trees and flowers. From the upstairs bedroom balcony there is a fantastic panoramic view across the villages and to the sea. Wonderful for the famous Stoupa sunsets. The owner was keen to answer any and all of my questions before we travelled and there was plenty of information at the villa and someone to contact in case of emergencies or indeed generally. Our holiday was a summer one, beach and relaxation after a short tour of Epidaurus and Mystras. You will find plenty of good restaurants to choose from in Stoupa and the surrounding villages, which are just a very short drive away. I would recommend this villa to a friend and also hope to return one day.
The villa is just outside Stoupa, a seaside village with boulevard on the Peleponnese. Stoupa has sandy beaches suitable for children, 2 supermarkets, a bakery, tavernas, an ATM, car rent etc. The bus stop is 800 m. from the villa. Close by are more nice photogenic villages like Kardamyli and Agios Nikolaos. Stoupa is in Outer Mani. The Mani is a part of the Peleponnese that is known for its many towers from where clans used to fight each other. Everywhere in the area hikes have been mapped out that take you through some beautiful nature and give you wonderful views of the mountains and the sea. You can visit the spectacular caves of Pirgos Dirou (1 hour). The busy town of Kalamata is also 1 hour away. As soon as you go into the mountains you will find villages that have been virtually untouched by modern times. If you like to see more of Greece's history you can visit Olympia, Monemvasia, Mistras, Sparta and many other places. The friendly Greeks will welcome you everywhere!
Other Activities: 3 beautiful sand beaches within walking distance, many tavernas, great hiking!
