Stoupa: Your Ultimate Coastal Getaway for a Magical Holiday!

Historic Marvels and Azure Waters:

Stoupa, a charming village in southern Peloponnese, invites you on an unforgettable trip filled with sandy beaches, hidden caves, and a captivating hill crowned with a castle. Formerly known as "Potamos" and later rebranded as "Stoupa," this place has become a must-visit destination, attracting more tourists each year who seek the perfect blend of history and azure beauty for their holiday trip.

A Holiday Journey Through Time:

Step into history as you explore the traditional fortified towers, symbols of Mani's resilient spirit. Lefktra, the nearby village, played a pivotal role in the formation of modern Stoupa. The ancient city of Lefktra, situated between Lefktra and Stoupa, adds layers to the historical narrative. Stoupa's prominence soared when it became the muse for Nikos Kazantzakis' iconic work, "Zorbas the Greek," turning it into a literary haven for enthusiasts.

Sunny Beach Retreats:

Your holiday in Stoupa is incomplete without basking in the golden sands and crystal-clear waters of its renowned beaches. Stoupa Beach, often likened to the "Miami of Mani," offers organized bliss with vibrant restaurants, cafes, and charming shops. Seek tranquility at Chalikoura Beach, a peaceful sandy haven. Kalogria Beach, famous for inspiring Kazantzakis, provides turquoise waters, beachside amenities, and a touch of literary history. Dive into the natural beauty of Delfinia Beach, surrounded by pines and olive trees, or uncover the hidden gem of Foneas Beach, with its pebbles and inviting rock formation.

Explore Beyond the Shoreline:

Your Stoupa trip extends to the quaint fishing village of Agios Nikolaos, where the main activity is fishing, but you can also enjoy strolls and a swim in the picturesque sandy beach. Just 7 km away, Kardamili unfolds its historical wonders, inviting you to delve deeper into the region's rich heritage. Follow the scenic seaside road southwards to discover Trachila, a little harbor with Katafigi Cave offering a unique swimming experience, attracting holidaymakers seeking both adventure and tranquility.
