The peaceful village of Stoupa really comes alive in the summer, when holidays to Stoupa bring in visitors from all over Europe and beyond. You can take your time adjusting to the warm Greek climate down on the unspoilt Stoupa Beach; it’s one of the finest shores in the region, with its gentle curve of sand and crystal-clear waters. Not only is this a superb place to relax, but it’s also a dream destination for water sports lovers too, with diving and snorkelling just some of the highlights. When you’re feeling up to an adventure, it’s well worth taking a hike through the rolling hills of the Mani peninsula. Or you could plan a daytrip to the UNESCO-protected Mystras, the former Byzantine capital. When you get back here, balmy evenings call for mingling with the locals at welcoming tavernas and restaurants.

Stoupa’s main beach is a glorious horseshoe-shaped crescent of pure, golden sand. The bay arches around the sparkling sea, which is beautifully clear, with shallow waters for swimming and paddling. You can sit back and relax from the comfort of a sun bed, or give snorkelling and diving a go. Pop on a scuba kit and beneath the waters, you’ll spot stunning marine life. It’s also possible to rent a pedalo or try out canoeing if you want to take things slower. When you fancy an ice-cold drink, you can easily pick one up at a beachfront taverna.

Holidays to Stoupa will take you to an absolutely stunning part of Greece; the village is tucked away between the turquoise coast and the rolling scenery of the Peloponnese (including the Taygetos Mountains), covered with olive groves and bright-green cypress trees. No wonder this region is so popular with hikers and cyclists! There are so many different routes to explore that you won’t run out of places to explore during your Stoupa holidays, and they all come with magnificent views along the way. In nearby Pirgos Diros, you’ll also discover the amazing Diros Caves; these magical chambers are filled with glistening stalagmites and stalactites that emerge at a glittering lake.

Stoupa is ideally situated for visiting the Mani region’s many cultural attractions. Historic gems like the UNESCO-protected Mystras is just over an hour’s drive away, and it’s a beautiful journey, too. Make your way through the valleys of the Langada and you’ll arrive in the magical Byzantine capital of Greece. Stroll through the fascinating ruins of this once significant town. Hidden in the mountains, you can also discover lots of little traditional villages, where you can sample a slice of local life. Over in the town of Methoni, there’s an incredible fortress dating back to the 13th Century. It’s surrounded on three sides by the Mediterranean Sea, and by a moat on the other. You can spend hours and hours wondering around here, and you won’t be able to resist the views.
