A perfect holiday in Villa Phoebe

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Phoebe Sept 2015 for just over 1 week. The villa is in a beautiful location tucked away on a lovely (but steep!) hillside with no passing traffic. As soon as we arrived we immediately felt relaxed here. It Villa itself has great facilities including wifi, aircon and a washing machine. Both bedrooms had views across the Stoupa coastline which was lovely to wake up too. The whole villa was spotlessly clean and faultless. Stoupa has lovely restaurants/beaches and is the perfect place for a quiet relaxing break. Akis was a great host and we will definitely be returning next year! Thank you Akis, Brigden Family.

The perfect Mani villa for sunset viewing

  • 5 of 5

Villa Phoebe is a perfect base for a holiday in the mani peninsula. It's locations makes for fabulous views of the Stoupa coastline as well as beautiful sunsets. The villa itself is lovely - clean, spacious, modern and even has a washing machine - a nice bonus. The pool is not large enough for exercising, but great for cooling down and chilling. The built in barbecue is great to use. We spent most of our time around Kalogria beach, but also spent a day going south to see the Diros caves. A nice new find was Agios Nikolous - a lovely village to the left of Stoupa as you look down from the villa. All in all a great holiday experience.

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in Villa Phoebe for almost two weeks. We absolutely enjoyed everything about the Villa. The home was very clean and housekeeping was provided twice during our stay...it was nice to have fresh linens. The villa has great modern features (including plenty of hot water), but still maintains character. The best part is of course was the breathtaking view with spectacular sunsets. Akis is a wonderful host. He answered all of our many questions prior to our travels to Stoupa. He also met us at the market on our first day to help us pick up some items for a light dinner after many hours of traveling. He was so helpful in showing us all the local items from the surrounding area that were available at the market. This was a small gesture, but such a huge help being that it was our first time in Greece and not to mention that we were nervous to use the tiny bit of Greek that we had learned. If you are planning a trip to the Mani we would highly recommend Villa Phoebe. Stoupa is a perfect location for any traveler. The area has so much to offer and the locals are some of the most friendliest people we have ever met. Villa Phoebe has certainly set high expectation for our future travel accomocations...we hope you enjoy you stay as much as we did!! ~ Joe and Michelle USA
