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!

The villa is listed with the Greek National Tourist Organisation: MHTE 1249K91000268501. Taxs is included in any prices mentioned.

About Sonia Farrar

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

Why Sonia Farrar chose Ditiki Mani

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.

What makes this villa unique

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 ;)

If you prefer to be in the shade you can sit on the veranda that is 60 m2 and offers you a complete view of the pool. More shade, closer to the pool can be found under the parasol and under one of the old olive trees that we have kept by the pool. The veranda and pool terrace are surrounded by a lush garden and olive groves. In front of the kitchen is a little herb garden with oregano, thyme, basilicum, mint and rosemary. There are a few lemon trees, orange trees, tangerine, fig tree and pomegranate. The herbs you can use if you plan to do any cooking (Greek cookbook at the house) and of course you can also enjoy the fruit when it's ripe.

Delightful villa in a lovely town

  • 5 of 5

We visited for 10 days in April and had the pleasure of great weather, sunny but not too hot, and not too busy so we were able to enjoy the areas great hiking, biking and beaches in perfect conditions.

People of this area are extraordinarily welcoming and one reason why we had such a delightful time.

The villa itself was perfect for us and our two teenagers with plenty of room inside and out for everyone to chill out, but cosy in evening around the open fire as it was quite cool in the evenings. It was a wonderfully relaxing 10 days and we'd highly recommend both the villa and the area.

Our stay at Villa To Kyma

  • 5 of 5

We were not disappointed in this Villa. Everything was perfect. The outside area and surrounding olive grove was stunning, as was the swimming pool - much enjoyed by our two grandchildren. We were very impressed by all the detailed information provided both before our stay and in the Villa by Sonia, the owner. She covered everything we needed. Stoupa is a really lovely place very family orientated and hopefully we will return again. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Villa.

Absolutely wonderful Villa enjoyed by all of the family

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a two week family break at Villa to Kyma which was absolutely fantastic. The Villa has everything you would wish for and suitably sized for four adults and two children aged 15 and 10, with fantastic views towards Stoupa/Sea. The outside is also very spacious with a reasonably sized pool which was excessively used by all.

A steady 15 minute walk away will take you to Stoupa Boulevard where there are ample of restaurants and bars to choose from. The sea is shallow for approximately 10 meters and then rapidly drops. Two Sun beds and one parasol will cost 7 euros but comes with waiter service for food and drinks which is reasonably priced.

A short drive away c.4 km is the beautiful fishing village of Agios Nikolaos where we visited a number of times for lunch along the Port.

A big thank you to Sonia who was always at hand to answer any questions and advise on suitable car hire.

A truly memorable holiday...

Rustic and great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Greece and when we arrived at the villa it was better than the photographs. Opening the 'wave' gates you are greeted by a rustic, traditional stone built villa with a lot of charm. The villa had all the amenities required and was in a great location being approximately 20 minutes walk down into Stoupa. Stoupa itself is a wonderful town/village with a horseshoe bay and an abundance of restaurants and cafe bars. The coastal walk to Agios Nikolaos was beautiful and Agios itself is a wonderful little harbour. Vesuvius restaurant is well worth a visit. We tried several of the restaurants in Stoupa and all were very similar, with a good varied menu although fresh fish appeared a little short on supply. Would highly recommend here if you want somewhere quiet and the villa is an excellent way to spend your days relaxing in the sun by the pool with a nice cold drink.

Many thanks to Soniar for her hospitality and communication throughout.

Excellent Villa, fully equipped and clean. Amazing

  • 4 of 5

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!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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!
