This beautiful Villa is located on the coast of Mani, 500 m from the sea. Overlooking Skoutari bay it offers excellent views of the Mediterranean and the mountains.


-Mani House is located near Gythio town on the Mani Peninsula, at Laconia, an area of the Peloponnese rich in history.
Its residents, the Maniots, were forceful men and Mani has maintained its independence throughout the years.
Overlooking the “SKOUTARI” Gulf, 500 meters away from the sea, offers a stunning view of the sea along with the opposite slopes of the mountain "Taygetos".
The house of 441.32 sqm is built on a stone-fenced plot of 5015.41 sqm, with a living space of 275.75 sqm and 165..57 sqm for auxiliary space including a garage of 80 sqm and 2.7 height.
The traditional buildings of Mani were built of stone following a fortress-like design; many vendettas amongst the Mani families meant that people built homes to protect themselves. Elements of this traditional style are reflected in the design of Mani House.
The stone walls are combined with a modern interior focused on comfort. The traditional albeit unique property features all modern conveniences including, among others, a sound system for different areas of the house; satellite TV, BBQ, and wood oven as well as an infinity pool with breathtaking views.
The main entrance to the property is from the pool terrace. The infinity pool is large with dimensions: Length 12.80m x 5.45m width, 1.35m high in the shallow and 3.00m in the deep water. The wooden door leads to a bright and spacious central living area. Each part of this central living space fits beautifully into a perfectly designed interior.
The colours are simple, creams and stone, with a flagged floor that runs throughout. The shutters are painted in pale pistachio and bright magenta has been introduced throughout the soft furniture and dining chairs which give a contrast of brilliance to the colour scheme. Large French style doors lead from every area to the pool terrace which offers a perfect place to relax for every part of the day.
Enjoy your stay at Mani House using the sun loungers that surround the pool, the shaded areas to dine or sit under the shade of the huge oak tree whilst playing a game of chess or backgammon.
The kitchen is located at the rear of the large central living space and is fully equipped with all modern conveniences. It offers direct access to a patio at the back of the house which takes on a traditional, cafe-style appearance featuring pretty, metal chairs and tables and a BBQ and bread oven to conjure up the flavours of Greece.
On the same level but in a separate wing are three bedrooms. One has a double bed with an en-suite bathroom including a bathtub and a large dressing area. Next, there are two twin bedrooms, each one featuring an en-suite bathroom with shower. All bedrooms have direct access to the pool terrace.
The next floor features a bedroom with en-suite bathroom and shower and a comfortable double bed, along with an office desk. This room benefits from a balcony overseeing the pool terrace and sea view.
Finally, on the basement level, the guests can benefit from indoor parking for 2-3 cars.
On the same level, and for our guests’ comfort, the Mani house caretaker is based. He looks after the property and stays in a self-contained, totally independent apartment, on the basement level. He is very discreet and tends to the engine room located at the same level, as well as the pool, usually twice a week, very early in the morning or very late at night, leaving guests to enjoy their privacy unless he is needed.
The Mani House is located on a large piece of land which has been planted with colourful indigenous plants, shrubs, and trees. The stone paths, steps, and walkways meander through the property can lead to our old oak tree for the most wonderful shade in the heat of the day.
The property is very well located in terms of accessing the beach and taverns, shops and cafes which are all a short drive away.
The Mani House is really exceptional and is situated in a part of Greece that is truly beautiful, unspoiled and wild.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.

“A wonderful villa!” I booked this villa for my family (2 adults, 3 children aged 8, 10, 12). The villa was absolutely stunning. It was extremely spacious, comfortable, immaculately clean (with further cleaner visits on 2 occasions whilst we were there) and it had all of the amenities you could ask for (air-con, DVD player, WiFi, laundry, full kitchen amenities). The pool was wonderful. It was large, clean and had wonderful views over the sea and mountains opposite. We spent 3 days in Athens and then drove easily and leisurely to the villa in 3.5 hours. You definitely need a car as it is in a fairly remote location, but there are lots of lovely towns, beaches, shops etc. all within 20-30 mins drive. Be sure to stock up at the supermarket before you arrive. the owner was in a self-contained apartment downstairs and at the rear of the property which was useful if we had any queries but he we had total privacy. He provided a fabulous information pack which we used all of the time for day-trips and restaurant recommendations. We had a wonderful holiday and would not hesitate to recommend this villa. 5 of 5 starsEase of booking 5 of 5 starsDirections to the property 5 of 5 starsKey pickup/access to the property 5 of 5 starsOverall condition 5 of 5 starsQuality of bedding/mattresses 5 of 5 starsKitchen/utensils quality 5 of 5 starsCleanliness of bathroom 5 of 5 starsQuality of facilities/amenities 5 of 5 starsService Liked best: The pool Liked least: Nothing, we loved it all Traveling group: Young Children Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend?

We were greeted by the owner of the villa who knows the area very well and we have advised the (very) good addresses where to enjoy the beautiful scenery and the excellent cuisine locale.Notre breakfast has shown great discretion and attentions (! the French songs CD ...) The area has lots of character and the villa with its architecture integrates them perfectly; the house is very nice and spacious, it is easy strolls and there to live there. Everything is very well designed and nothing is missing. Stunning views, encourage travel and the pool seems to do only with the sea. The village is very quiet, and the villa has a large plot for relative isolation. Many beaches are accessible within minutes; they are uncrowded and the atmosphere is calm and friendly at a time. The shops also help to source great cheap products (meat, vegetables and fish are an unbeatable value for money), prepared in the large kitchen of the villa or barbecue. Nous avons été accueillis par le propriétaire de la villa qui connait très bien la région et nous a conseillés sur les (très) bonnes adresses où profiter des superbes paysages et de l'excellente cuisine locale.Notre hote a fait preuve de beaucoup de discrétion et d'attentions (les CD de chansons françaises !...) La région a beaucoup de caractère et la villa de par son architecture s'y intègre parfaitement ; la demeure est très agréable et spacieuse, on y déambule aisément et il fait bon y vivre. Tout est très bien conçu et rien ne manque. La vue est époustouflante, incite au voyage et la piscine semble ne faire qu'une avec la mer. Le village est très calme, et la villa dispose d'un grand terrain permettant un relatif isolement. De nombreuses plages sont accessibles en quelques minutes ; elles sont peu fréquentées et l'ambiance y est calme et conviviale à la fois. Les commerces permettent également de s'approvisionner en très bons produits peu chers (les viandes , légumes et poissons sont d'un rapport qualité prix imbattable), préparés dans la grande cuisine de la villa ou son barbecue.
