Stoupa holidays will carry your cares and troubles away on the warm breeze, as you enjoy the resort's excellent beaches and clear waters.
The resort is situated on the south coast of Greece’s Peloponnese peninsula. Locals call the peninsula – joined to the Greek mainland by a small strip of land – the “Mani”. The backdrop of the stunning Taygetos Mountains complements the golden sands and crystal seas of the small collection of resorts here.
You can reach Stoupa on international flights into one of the major Greek airports and transfer via the airport at Kalamata.
You'll find the pace of life in Stoupa to be slow – stubborn mules cause traffic jams here – and the sedate, traditional air will suit families and couples, among others.
Life here for tourists is about days spent on the lovely beaches, at Stoupa and Kalogria, and evenings in one of the traditional tavernas lining the resort's main street. A range of accommodation is dotted between the fishing harbour and the olive groves.
Among day trips from Stoupa when you fancy a change of scenery are the underground waterways of the Caves of Diros or the fortress town of Methoni. Agios Nikolaos is another pleasant resort, while the city of Kalamata is an hour away. Here you'll find a bigger choice of restaurants, plus shops and bars.
