Object ID: UST1807, Pontos, Stoupa, Messinia Mani
Villa Pontos is next door to two nearby houses: Nostos (max 2) and Estia (max 4). All houses have access to a saltwater pool and jacuzzi, as well as large terraces with comfortable sun loungers around the pool. If you do not want both in the pool then there is a secret path nearby that goes through the fragrant olive grove and leads you to the well-known beach Kalogria where the novel Zorba was written.
Pontos (Ποντος) was the primordial god of the sea (protogenes). He was the sea itself, the open path of ancient Greeks to share with the rest of the world's art and knowledge. And here you can see Pontos from morning to evening: panoramic views of the emerald Mediterranean sea from the two porches of the house.
The villa has a tasteful décor, well-equipped kitchen that combines with a nice living room and two private terraces where you can enjoy a meal with a view. In this stone house on two floors on 112 sqm there is space for four to six people:

About the area: Peloponnese and Stoupa
On the southern coast of Peloponnese in Greece and about 45 minutes drive from the nearest airport in Kalamata (or 3,5 hours drive from Athens International Airport) lies the beautiful and unspoiled village of Stoupa with warm, beautiful summers and mild winters.
With two lovely sandy golden beaches (as well as several smaller beaches), this once-sleepy village has become more and more popular as a tourist destination, yet has left the true Greece. There are about 20 tavernas and restaurants along the seafront where you can enjoy delicious local and traditional Greek dishes.
Stoupa is located in a fascinating area called Mani. This is the only part of Greece never conquered by intruders. The people, Maniots, built towerhouses (called Mani Towers) where they took shelter under the countless local feudes fought here. Some of these Mani Towers have been restored and can still be seen in the area.
The writer Nikos Kazantzakis who wrote Zorba the Greek lived here then and his statue can be seen looking over the Kalogria beach. For history lovers, Stoupa is ideally located to visit such fascinating places as Olympia and Mystras - or you can just sit on the beach or in a tavern and sip an ouzo with the locals!
