Villa Morea is located just above the spectacular Bay of Skoutari with its three sandy beaches - all within easy walking distance. This architecturally-designed property has been built of local stone from the dramatic Taygetus mountains and is nestled into an oasis of gardens surrounded by nature.

The villa is all on one level. There is a large open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen featuring stylish modern furnishings with splashes of colour, fabulous rugs and artwork. Large sets of french windows open onto the terrace with glorious views over the countryside to Skoutari Bay below and the island of Kythira beyond.

A passageway connects the open plan living area with the three bedrooms. There is a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom; the 2nd bedroom is with double bed, and the 3rd bedroom with twin beds. These two bedrooms share a bathroom. All bedrooms have french windows onto a terrace. Both bathrooms are very stylish with a fun and joyful colour scheme.

The villa has WIFI, docking station for i-pod/i-phone, twoTVs, air-conditioning in all three bedrooms and ceiling fans in the open plan area. There is also a 3rd bathroom - guest WC.

The large stone terrace is surrounded by nature with a dining area under the pergola within the shade of a wild oak tree. Sun loungers are set out on the terrace so guests can enjoy the wonderful views to the blue of the sea below. The gardens are an oasis of Mediterranean, herbs, shrubs and trees with olives, wild oaks, lemons, oranges and pomegranates tumbling down the terraces.

This property is perfect for lovers of sea swimming. Just 120m away or a few mins by foot are three beaches of soft, white sand. The villa has its own sun loungers at the beach. There are two excellent tavernas with tables right on the sand providing fresh fish caught daily by local fishermen. The white-washed taverna, the pretty little Byzantine church and the dramatic contours of Skoutari Bay complete a perfect picture. 

In the local village 5 mins walk away is a mini-market and cafe selling all the essential items. Other shops can be found at Vathi 10 mins drive away. The beautiful sea-side town of Gythion with its Neo-Classical architecture is just 15kms away with a full range of shops, and the picturesque fishing village of Limeni with its array of sea-front tavernas is also just a short drive away. Boat hire is available at Limeni where there is also a diving centre. 

The Mani has been described as ‘the hidden coast of Europe’. Resplendent with history, it has a dramatic coastline with endless beaches fringed with pretty fishing villages. Inland the rugged Taygetus mountains with their fortified villages of stone towers offer dramatic and stunning scenery. Near Areopoli (a short drive from the villa) are the Drios Caves, a watery underworld of deep and extensive caves that you explore by punt with your very own ferryman…So much to explore and to discover in this once fierce and independent area of Medieval Greece.

Please note that it is possible for larger parties of up to 12 to combine Villa Morea with The Mani House. Each is totally secluded and private. Designed by the same architect and within a short walk of each other through the grounds.

Reviews

Stephen R. arrived 9th July 2022 

We had a very enjoyable stay at Villa Morea. The villa was perfectly situated close to the lovely beaches and quiet village of Skoutari where we spent most of our time. We did a couple of day trips to Limeni and Areopoli and used Mani Watersports for an SUP tour which was great. Maria (the villa owner) was easy to contact and very helpful with recommendations and reservations at local tavernas for us, and the food was delicious everywhere.

It was a beautifully designed and furnished villa, and we really enjoyed using the main living areas and the balcony. The bedrooms were comfortable and the fans and air con worked very well to keep us cool at night. The kitchen was easy to use and some basic provisions had been helpfully left for our arrival.
