I'm intersted in going to Stoupa next summer - probably July/August. If we rent a car from Athens Airport is the drive on a good road? Safe? If we detoured to Ancient Olympus, how is that road for driving?
We would probably then go to Sparti after. I've been told the quickest way is over a moutain which is quite stressful. Is the road south to the Mani area and then back up to Sparti a safer road?
We have a young daughter - good destination for families? How is the beach at Stoupa - I've also read Kalogria is quite nice.
Is everything walking distance - i.e. if we stayed near Stoupa beach is the town (restauants etc.) close by?
