Property for sale in the Peloponnese, Greece’s hidden secret.
The Peloponnese is traditional Greece, with a rich green landscape, traditional tavernas with excellent prices and no mass tourism. If you have not visited before, this area is similar to how Corfu used to be 20 plus years ago, with stunning scenery and beaches with crystal clear water.
We have a vast selection of villas for sale in Stoupa, Agios Nikolaos, Neohori, Kardamyli and the surrounding villages. We also have plots of land for sale and can help you with architects and builders.
What is it Like
The Peloponnese is like the unspoiled, greener Greek islands.
- Unspoiled Greece without mass tourism
- Sandy beaches and secluded coves
- Tavernas with amazing meals at prices much lower than the Greek islands
- Stone houses with lots of character
- A hilly terrain providing stunning sea views and amazing sunsets into the sea
- Easy access and excellent weather all year around
- World famous local produce including Kalamata olives, wine and much more
You can choose to buy a resale property, or have a lovely stone house built for you on a plot of land with stunning views. We will help you from beginning to finish and, as the stone is mined locally and plots are plentiful, your property can be built at a much lower cost than other parts of Greece.
How to Get There
There is an international airport at Kalamata, with Stoupa, Agios Nikolaos and Kardamyli, about 40 minutes’ drive away with some spectacular scenery along the way. You can even drive from Athens to Kalamata which is about 2.5 hours along the new highway.
The Main Property Areas
The most popular area is in the southern Peloponnese and is known as Messinia. It is easily accessible from the international airport at Kalamata. The city of Kalamata has a population of 70,000 and has all the facilities you could need. The main area in Messinia is southeast of Kalamata, known as the Mani, and includes villages such as Stoupa, Agios Nikolaos, Kardamyli, Neohori and many more. The other popular villages, close to and south west of Kalamata include Pylos, Chrani, Koroni and Methoni. When looking at the properties, use the “map view” option on our website to see approximate locations.
Stoupa is a beachside village with three sandy beaches, over twenty tavernas and a relaxed feel. The beachside road closes in the evening and the tavernas and bars are full but entertainment is low key with no mass tourism. Stoupa is actually where the famous film “Zorba the Greek” was written, even though it was filmed in Crete.
From Stoupa, there is a picturesque seaside footpath which takes about 45 minutes to walk to Agios Nikolaos, or you can hire a bicycle.
Just 3 km south of Stoupa is Agios Nikolaos, a small working fishing village with a lovely harbour, many excellent tavernas and a local fish market. Like Stoupa, the road closes in the evenings and the taverna tables spill out on the streets. It is a great place to watch the small fishing boats and the sunsets into the sea. You can swim and snorkel next to the harbour but the main sand/shingle beach is about 10 minutes’ walk south.
Kardamyli is 7 km north of Stoupa. It is a charming village with a lot of history as it was first mentioned by the poet Homer in about 1200 BC. Kardamyili has some lovely buildings, an ancient old village, a small harbour, a number of beaches and some excellent tavernas. It is especially popular with artists, poets and walkers, with many trails in the nearby hills. The village was home to the famous travel writer, Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor who wrote extensively about the area.
We have many villas and plots of land for sale in these and many other seaside villages. They are surrounded by olive groves and behind them are the fantastic Taygetos mountains. In the foothills of these mountains are many small villages such as Neohori, Lefkto, Frigano and Riglia. These villages are just a couple of kilometres from the sea but are elevated with stunning views and a cooling breeze. In these villages, we have a selection of villas for sale as well as plots of land where you can have a stone villa built for you at excellent prices.
The Peloponnese and Messinia in particular is unspoiled, varied and an excellent area to explore. We have many properties for sale in the Peloponnese as well as plots of land. Call us at our UK office and we would be happy to talk to you about the area and answer your questions.
