There is a dining table inside as well as a dining table on the balcony and lots of chairs. My favourite spot is the balcony where you can sit with a glass of wine and watch the sun set behind the mountains over the sea. (The below picture I took from our balcony)
There is ample parking for two cars to the side of the villa.
In front of the villa there is more seating in a walled courtyard garden with raised beds of geraniums, lavender and roses. We also have two orange trees.
At the back of the villa there is a walled olive grove that we share with the adjoining villa (owned by my husband’s brother). We use the olives to make our own olive oil each year.
Stoupa Holidays – Villas in Stoupa
Stoupa itself is a lovely place. It’s not too big and feels very safe and family friendly. The bay is lined with welcoming tavernas and restaurants. I have reviewed a few here (it’s a hard job…!). The villa is a couple of minutes drive to the beach, or if you are feeling energetic it takes around ten minutes to walk down. Walking back up, especially after a few glasses of wine takes a bit longer! The below view is taken from Bar 360 – definitely worth a visit before dinner!

There are lots of other pretty beaches to visit in the area or you could make a day of it and visit some local sights like Ancient Messene (amazing place and a must visit), or the Diros Caves. Other places of note including Gythio, Kalamata, Methoni, Sparta and Koroni. The below picture was taken at Messene.
