Just back from 2 weeks at Casa Sophia, this home from home spacious aparrment lived up to all our expectations and more. The lovely couple who own this house could not have been more helpful and welcoming, we arrived on the first British Airways flight to Kalamata to be met by press and dignaturies and even a fire tender water cannon directed over the plane.
The village of Pyrgos is so peaceful and very unique with many wonderful walks straight from the village. Stoupa is a lovely village totally unspoitl but with wonderful beach and restaurants, we walked several times along the beautiful pathway to agios nikolaos from Stoupa another fantastic village with lovely restaurants. Took the bus to Kalamata a spectaular trip over the mountains had lunch and visited the old town and harbour, a great city to explore. Once more thank you Sophia and Moggan for a wonderful stay.

“Very enjoyable and quiet place to stay.”
Reviewed October 21, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is very much of an off the beaten track place, though not so much that you can be on a beach in 10 minutes, some of the finest of which we have see in Greece. The apartment was all that we could have hoped for and our host, who lives on site, could not have been more helpful. The kitchen was the best equipped that we have stayed in in the last 15 years. Having arrived late in the day, Sophia provided us with "starter" supplies so that we did not have to get provisions on our way in. A good grocery store is also only 10 minutes away in the town of Stoupa.

“WONDERFUL PLACE, LOVELY PEOPLE”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

There is no doubt you will enjoy the quietness of the mountain and you'll find the village is charming, but how not to fall in love with this lovely home and its inhabitants.
It really is a nice old house beautifully furnished and decorated and very well equipped. in addition, the kindness of Sophia and Mogens, their availability, makes you think that you are visiting friends rather than renting a house for vacation.
Starting on morning on the terrace, taking your coffee under the shade of the pergola and contemplating the sea view , this is the best way to start your day !
Then you will go down to the beach (10 minutes) or will visit one of these places recommended by Sophia and Mogens.
for the evening, dinner in a tavern on Agios Nikolaos' harbour or in a secret place in the mountain.

“Fantastic apartment in a mountain village, overlooking the sea.”
Reviewed September 13, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have recently returned from a lovely week staying at Casa Sophia. We rented the upper apartment, which has a beautiful outdoor terrace. The house is in a very quiet and atmospheric mountain village, more or less untouched by tourism. Sophia gave us a great welcome, and even provided us with provisions to get us started (including oranges and figs from her orchard). Her recommendations of sight-seeing, beaches, bar and tavernas, were excellent. Staying here is like staying at a friend’s house, full of interest, books, and ornaments. Our routine was reading/writing in the morning, then driving down the hillside to one of the beaches - from leaving the house you can be swimming in the sea after a 10-15 min drive. Sophia recommended Pantazi beach, and we returned there often. There are some restaurants in the village below (Neohori) but we ended up eating most nights at one of the many tavernas on the coast, particularly in Agios Nikiolas. We retreated back up the mountain after a day on the coast, to the cool night, the terrace, and the stars. A lovely place to stay, and very highly recommended.

“Early Summer in Mani”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed in Casa Sophia for one week in early summer 2013. The peaceful atmosphere of the ancient village, the beauty of the house, the kindness of our hosts, the lazy mornings and evenings enjoying meals and company on the terrace admiring the sea in the distance or in the garden...all these helped our short break to become 'a most precious and sweet memory' already. From the first moment you feel at home, comfortable and ready to enjoy your stay there. We suggest to carefully follow any information about beaches, tavernas, places to visit, local shops; Sophia and her partner are very kind, helpful and we found their advice interesting and very useful.

“A very special holiday spot in unspoilt southern Greece”
Reviewed June 9, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

This is a wonderfully restored stone Greek property with excellent facilities in a hilltop village with stunning views over the sea and mountains. A brilliant spot to explore The Mani. A superb welcome from the owner who has a mine of information for many varied day and overnight trips around the area. Lots of local hillside and coastal walks. Lovely to be able to nip down in the car to either the quiet beaches or local bars and restaurants by the sea or up into the hillside hamlets to watch the sunset - idyllic. A delightful garden and terrace brimming with colour and lovingly tended. Both the upper floor accommodation and the master garden suite, opening out onto the delightful garden, have every facility for a most comfortable stay and the upper floor commands stunning views from the terrace. Excellent value for money and I can't wait to return!

This lovingly restored stone house with its stunning features and the picture book hillside village of Pyrgos stole our hearts from the moment we stepped out of our car and made our way along the narrow cobbled streets . Can still remember the beautiful flowers , smell of thyme in the air and the breathtaking views. Loved the fact that we had 3 lovely beaches and the small bustling harbour and restaurants of Agios Nikolias within such easy reach and yet had the peace and tranquility of the house with its lovely garden and terraces as our base. Very comfortable accomodation for all with the unique master suite accomodation and grotto shower making us feel very spoiled ndeed! Thank you Sophia for the love that you have poured into this house. We felt it and will be back!
