The Peloponnese is one of the destinations that you know you will have a good time all year round. And it makes sense since it offers you many options and has many variations in landscapes you will encounter. Mountains, forests, seas, and running waters. Endless beaches and tower houses that almost touch the waves. Traditional settlements and villages travel you back in time and await you to rest and spend some relaxing moments away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. And Mani with its beauties can offer you just that. Holidays in Mani and the surrounding areas will leave you with the best impressions. You will find the ideal accommodation in Mani for you and your friends or family and you will arrange when you will return to the same places again.
Making a trek, we can definitely distinguish four stops that you should make for a beautiful holiday in Mani. They are the all-time classic choices that are no random fixed values.
If you see photos from Limeni you will think it is a postcard. It is a beautiful city on the sea with houses having a unique view. This is the picture you will see. Tower houses and houses that look like they came out of another era. Crystal-clear waters and images full of contrasts. Limeni is a seaside village worth visiting at least once in your life. It is so cosmopolitan and so quiet at the same time. You will find everything you want to spend a few days relaxing. What is certain is that you will take many photos and taste delicious local recipes.
What also makes Limeni special is the fact that it does not have the sandy beaches of other seaside villages. And that has its own charm. Do not forget to visit the Diros Cave where you will be enchanted by the images inside.
Kardamili is another gem of the area that you should visit. A sea corner with lots of greenery and a relaxed pace in the Peloponnese. Messinian Mani is at its best. Located on the west side, it is suitable for all types of travelers. It should definitely be one of your stops if you are on a road trip to Mani. A picturesque village which has a long history through the years. It has been a city sometimes larger and sometimes smaller with this name for 3,240 years. What will catch your eye here too are the tower houses. You might even find one to stay in. The experience is completely unique and we highly recommend it.
Your reward for the trip there will also be the enchanting and crystal clear beaches with crystal clear waters. If you find yourself on holiday in Kardamyli, do not forget to visit the castle of Zarnata near Kardamyli.
No more all-time classic is possible. Gythio is for those looking for something more than just a stay in all respects. A very organized settlement that has everything and you can have it as your base to get to know the whole surrounding area. This historic town near the mouth of the river Evrotas will win you over from the first moment. The colorful harbor with the aroma of Mani is at the same time cosmopolitan but also calm and especially family-friendly. A trip to Mani requires a stop of two days at least. Perhaps what you will see will extend your stay in this corner of the Peloponnese.
The neoclassical buildings at the port, the picturesque alleys and flowery courtyards, the traditional taverns, and the hospitality are all you are looking for and you will find them there. Don't forget to ask and see the unknown Greek island... of Helen of Beauty. You will be thrilled...
With the background of the gray towers and the blue sky, Areopolis always has a place in our hearts when we make a trip to Mani or the Peloponnese in general. At the entrance of Laconian Mani, Areopolis stands imposing as if a page from a history book has been left open. Cobbled streets, centuries-old churches, and buildings of another era will welcome you. The residents are always willing to tell you stories from the past and you will be fascinated to hear them. If you are one of those travelers who likes to see many sights on your vacation, here you will hang out for days. You can comfortably combine your excursion with Limeni. Tradition and modern service from the locals is the ideal combination.
Traveling to Mani is always a new experience because there are many things you can see and do. The days may always seem short but if you organize well, this trip will be unforgettable. Prepare your camera...
