With peaceful sandy beaches and a slow pace of life, a Stoupa holiday is a blissful retreat for travellers. If friendly Greek hospitality, traditional cuisine, and atmospheric medieval architecture sound good to you, you’ve come to the right place.
Stoupa is a sparkling coastal gem on the Mani peninsula, an area just south of the Peloponnese that’s known for its unspoiled natural beauty and wild mountainous terrain. It’s a perfect getaway if you’re after a classic Greek beach break – think sunbathing with sand between your toes, leisurely swims in the sea, and long, unrushed lunches in local tavernas.
When you’re not flopped on the sand, consider hiking or cycling – this region is built for it. The nearby Taygetos Mountains welcome walkers of all abilities to explore the many pathways that snake up its slopes, passing waterfalls and hidden churches along the way. The mountain range’s highest peak is an impressive 2,404m (7,887ft).
If you prefer four wheels to two, Stoupa is also a great coastal base for road trips. Hire a car to explore further afield, taking in the fascinating Peloponnese history at sites like Mystras, where the hillside has fresco-decorated Byzantine churches leading up to a majestic castle. Or, discover the Mani’s traditional villages and tower houses (quaint stone structures that look like mini-castles). You’ll learn tales of mythical Greek gods and divided Maniat clans as you wander quiet, olive-tree flanked avenues in Kastania or Vathia – stopping, of course, for coffee or lunch in the local village square. If you’re driving down from Athens, marvel at the ancient archaeological wonders of Mycenae as you pass by.
Kids in tow? Stoupa has everything you could possibly wish for in a family-friendly holiday resort: a golden sandy shore, shallow seawater, and restaurants that cater to all ages and tastes. Go snorkelling, rent kayaks, or spend relaxing days together soaking up the sun.
