About the area: Peloponnese and Stoupa
On the southern coast of Peloponnese in Greece and about 50 minutes drive from the nearest airport in Kalamata (or about 3 hour 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 author Nikos Kazantzakis who wrote Zorba the Greek when he lived here and his statue can be seen looking over the Kalogrias border. For history lovers, Stoupa is ideally located for visiting such fascinating places as Olympia and Mystras - or you can just sit on the beach or in a taverna and sip an ouzo with locals!
Travel to Stoupa
During the period March to October, you can fly directly to Kalamata from Stockholm or Copenhagen (check out times at the Aegean). If you choose to come to Stoupa during the period November - February, where there is no direct flight to Kalamata Airport from Scandinavia, you can choose Athens as a flight destination and then you need to count on about 3,5 hours drive from Athens Airport. We will certainly assist you with transfer if you wish it.
