  • Kardimili 2008

    Stoupa Things to Do

    During our 2008 holiday to Koroni we travelled over to "the other side". We stopped for a drink in Kardimili, the first port of call when you drop back down to the coast. It was very hot and not a lot of shade to be found. All the places that were open were on the main road, so not that peaceful. We ended up at To Aloni whose customers seemed to...

  • Kardimili

    Stoupa Things to Do

    About 10km. north of Stoupa is Kardimili, a lovely seaside village with a good, long pebble beach a kilometre or so away. At the far end of this is a campsite. There are some pretty, old properties here and inland are the ruins of the even older village.There are plenty of places to stay though many may be block-booked by holiday companies. There...

    Stoupa Warnings and Dangers

    Because this area of the Peloponnese is such a popular destination, many people have decided this is where they want to have a holiday home or in lots of cases, move permanently here. This is very much in evidence with all the new buildings popping up on the hillsides and spare land behind the beaches and resorts of Stoupa and Ag. Nik.Ok, most of...

    In case you want to taste some great grilled fish while in Agio Nikolaos I suggest you to walk to the end of the waterfrong and sit under the shady umbrella at To Limeni taverna.The restaurant went for the blue and azure decor, very Greek style.The owner is friendly and very helpful. They have a good menu of traditional Greek dishes and fish, that...

  • Stoupa

    West Mani Favorites

    Stoupa is supposed to be the best place to be in this area.. well i do not agree.. the beach is sure very nice with fine sand and the usual crystal water that you expect in Greece, BUT it is totally crowded!We drove there willing to find out spot in the sand but we were underwhelmed by the ants looking crowd... there was no room left to set a chair...

  • A Greek Man's Fantasies

    Filiatra Things to Do

    A curiosity of this stretch of coast is the fact that many of the residents are Greeks who have returned having done a stint in America.One such local, Haris Fournakis, known as Harry Fournier, arrived back in Filiatra, from America, in the 1960's, having become a surgeon and made his fortune. He began to live out his fantasies. First, he built a...

    Filiatra Things to Do

    Oh, my goodness, Greece has some strange goings on in wierd locations. On the road between Marathopoli and Filiatra, in western Messinia, you'll come across Agios Kiriaki. We stopped here many years ago as we were desperate for a drink. The whole place seemed to consist of a scruffy little harbour with an equally scruffy patch of beach and this...

  • Sheep fold near Bassae

    Bassae Local Customs

    A few kilometers before Bassae, I found that this sheepfold was very scenic, on top of a hill, framed by a dozen of sharp cypresses. The sheep were grazing in the valley but the whole landscape looked very romantic, like a 19th century drawing!

  • Threshing floor

    Bassae Local Customs

    In various places in Greece (Evia, Oros Pilion, etc), we have spotted flat structures paved with stone. This one was obviously the best one. Though we have not seen it working, it seems that this one had been used recently : donkeys are standing near the area and thatch remaining from the threshing is still there. To bad we have not seen it...

  • Fresh spring

    Bassae Favorites

    When we visited Bassae, the site was desert. We had it for ourselves. There were no shops, no food, no water but half a kilometer away, this nice looking fountain with a spring that gave a marvelously fresh water! Under the hot sun of August, that was a blessing!
