The village of Stoupa
Stoupa is a picturesque and serene seaside village in Mani, the southernmost tip of the gorgeous Peloponnese. The Mani is a region of Messinia, famous for its dry, sunny climate almost nine months a year.
Stoupa is well known for its spectacular beaches and exquisite landscape at the foot of magnificent Mt. Taygetos, offering the visitor the best of sun, sea and mountains year-round. An enchanting village that charms its visitors, drawing them back year after year. In the summer the water and the sandy beaches tempt all lovers of the sun and the sea. Stoupa in the winter calls to those who like traditional Greece, warm days and long walks in wildflower-strewn olive groves.
Stoupa’s milder winters make it ideal for winter getaways. As Tria Luxury Residence is available year-round, it makes it the perfect place for all seasons.

The area has three beaches, Stoupa, Kalogria and Halikoura. Every evening the sunset tints the sea with the most marvellous colours – the best time of the day for the village. It is a time for taking idyllic photos, strolling on the beach or walking to the nearby picturesque village of Lefktron.

Stoupa is quite different during the winter months. Many of the restaurants close and of course the weather is cooler. Don’t let this put you off though, there is a whole different beauty to Stoupa during the winter months. There are still places open to eat and drink. Less people, a more community feel. Warm days many of which could be spent on the (quiet) beaches. There are many walking options that would be a little off-putting in the summer heat.
