We love Stoupa because it's so unspoiled, but has everything we want for a relaxing holiday. There are many nice bars and restaurants, but it never feels 'touristy'. A lot of Greeks go there - a very good indicator.
The Garden Apartment is terrific value for money and is really well appointed and equipped. It is naturally shaded, but air-con is there if you need it. It's very well maintained, as is the attractive garden and terrace. It has everything you need if you want to cook, but frankly there are so many really good and reasonably priced bars and restaurants that you might not want to too often. It is really only a five minute stroll to the beach, via very quiet paths and a lane with local services and shops.
The bay is very pretty and it's easy enough to find space. It's also very safe and good swimming- for kids too. Good walking is possible if you've mind, but go early in high summer. We particularly enjoy the sea path walk to "Ag'. Nic'", stopping for a swim on the way before breakfast. (If you're early enough you might even see the fishermen returning with the day's catch, but we don't often make it!)
We'll definitely return soon.
The apartment was modern, comfortable and well equipped with a balcony that overlooks a lovely garden. The location was fantastic and only a 5 minute walk to the beach, bars and local taverns. It is also a great base for exploring the surrounding areas in the Mani
We stayed in this apartment 2 years ago (June 2014) during our holidays in Stoupa. Fantastic location, only 5 mins walk to the local beach and the sea front promenade. There is about 25 different restaurants along the coast with a great freshly made food, and the prices are very reasonable (€30 dinner for 2 with local wine)
The flat is well equipment, you can find everything you need for a holiday. We haven't cooked there as eating out was quite cheap, but if you need to, the kitchen is fully equipment. Very nice bathroom with the shower and comfortable bed. There is an air conditioner in the bedroom but we haven't used it and the apartment was quite cool inside.
We found the town itself very safe, we were comfortable to leave out belonging on the beach while having a dip in the sea, never had any issues. Sun beds and umbrellas are free on the beach as long as you buy a drink from the cafe which owns this spot on the beach.
We are looking coming back next year to Stoupa and staying in this apartment again.
Was described great location, walking distance to all !local amenities. Very comfortable place to stay, with everything you need on a holiday break. Great value for money.
