Perks for the Parents

Designed for families and groups of friends, this luxurious modern villa has spacious indoor living with a fully equipped kitchen and dining table for 8. Located near Stoupa village on the Mani Peninsula, it is quiet and private with 2 master bedrooms with kingsize beds, ensuite bathrooms and desk space to create an elegant retreat with bright light and countryside views. Parents love the private emerald pool with loungers, family amenities and privacy.

Why Kids Love it

The home is a fun space for children with vast room to play both indoors and out, including a private pool and covered outdoor dining area among the olive trees. Two soothing children's bedrooms include 2 sets of twinsize beds and a shared bathroom with shower. A playroom with soft pouf chairs, toys, books, DVD player and a TV is located on the ground floor for privacy and space. A baby crib and high chair are provided.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3-7 nights, depending on the season. The nearest town is 3.5 km away and having your own/rented car is a must. There is a spacious private parking. Daily maid service included. Most of the rooms have air conditioning, windows have mosquito nets and windows shutters or roller shades. Ideal age is 3+, since there are some ungated stairs and the swimming pool does not have a gate. There is another villa next door, not available for rent, where the owner occasionally stays. Washer/dryer, dishwasher and WiFi included. Note that the property is spread across 3 linked buildings with the children's bedroom in a different unit from the parent's bedrooms. Agios Nikolaos Health Center is 8.5 km away.

About the Location

The villa is located near Stoupa village on the Mani Peninsula in the southern Peleponnese. It stands in the middle of an olive grove and offers ultimate privacy for guests. The area is rich in authentic 12th century Byzantine churches and small mountain villages. A picturesque Kardamili village is within a short drive and is famous for its castle. Local beaches with crystal clear waters are within a 15-minute drive away: the most famous is Kalogria beach in Stoupa village with cold water springs. Ritsa beach in Kardamili has nice clear water and white pebbles, and less busy options include Foneas and Kalamitsi, both easy to access. Kalamata International Airport is about 1 hour, 15 minutes' drive; Athens is just under 4 hours' drive away.

Accommodation Details

The villa consists of 3 stone buildings, connected to each other with steel-glass elements. The first building consists of 2 master bedrooms on 2 different levels. The second building has a spacious living room with a fireplace on the first floor and 2 children’s bedrooms on the ground floor with an extension to the living room. The third building has an eat-in kitchen, dining area seating 8 and open living space. Outdoors there is a private pool, a covered dining area and a BBQ.

Style Notes

Modern luxury. This open and warm living space carefully brings together contemporary art and furniture with comfortable ambience for a free-spirited feel. Local materials such as stone, wood and marble give the classic touch of an authentic Greek villa, with the space designed to live both indoors and outdoors, surrounded by views of the mountains, countryside and sea. We love the dining chairs, relaxed play space and unique wooden ceiling details.

Being both, hosts for our guests and parents of two little children, we understand the needs of travelling families. We live in a big city and we love to get away for a weekend, somewhere close to sea, into the nature. Whenever we are at The Architect's Residence, our children love to play 'hide and seek', paint in the Playroom, which is their own space. The 'grown ups' enjoy the terrace outdoors in the summer time and in winter the fireplace indoors. We are excited to join Kid & Coe, it fits our profile so much.

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is in a very peaceful location and the view is quite amazing with a lovely sunset. You do need a car here but all you need is pretty close by. Lucia is very attentive and cares for you throughout the stay. She has a team of people in the area to assist you with anything you need and clean the house on a daily basis. It's pretty much like being on a hotel but with the comfort and privacy of a private house. During our stay we celebrated my husband's birthday and on that day, we arrived from the beach to a beautiful bouquet of roses. Nice touch... The only thing I would point out is that the house has lots of stairs so if you're travelling with a young toddler you might need to take this into account.

Peleponnese, Greece Mainland

Myths, legends and perfect beaches

From ancient ruins to postcard-perfect beaches, the Peleponnese peninsula in southern Greece is at the heart of the nation's myths and legends, the place where Odysseus' son started his search for his father, where classical civilization draws its rich history. You don't have to range around ruins and ancient sites - the beaches and mountains are dazzling on their own - but it would be a shame to miss the ruins at Mystra, Olympia, Mycenae or Corinth. Dine on fresh local fish, take boat trips and swim in crystal clear water.
