Offering free Wi-Fi, a pool, a bar and a garden, Anaxo Resort lies at the edge of Messinian Mani, offering unlimited views to the Messinian Gulf. We were not typical tourists, but needed a base for 48 hours while we dealt with admin following sale of our holiday home in the area. Anaxo provided peace, ample space to re-organise our 5 suitcases, a good view, and a comfortable bed. Staff exceedingly helpful and friendly. Excellent breakfast.
Set in Riglia, 48 km from Kalamata, Poliana Estate Villas offers an outdoor swimming pool and free WiFi. Amazing place! We did not expected to find such gem! Strongly recommended! They even prepared us little breakfast! The host is amazing woman, she cares so much about everyone!
Located in Riglia, 47 km from Kalamata, Tzokeika Traditional Settlement provides a garden and free WiFi. All units are equipped with a fridge, oven, a kettle, a stovetop and coffee machine. Tzokeika Traditional Settlement is a unique project by a family of architects who built a settlement of stone-built houses in traditional Mani (the region) style resembling a fortress. The houses themselves as well as the internal decoration are truly beautiful. The settlement is easy to find and just minutes away from Agios Nicolaos, a pleasant village with high quality restaurants (particularly Elli's) and from Stoupa with its wonderful sand beach. The settlement is peaceful as all buildings are set apart and Serena and her family are friendly and generous hosts.
Riglia is a traditional fisherman village with good taverns. There are some very good hotels around perfect to explore outer Mani. It is close to Kardamili ( have to see) but not so expensive (still not).
Riglia is about an hour by car from Kalamata (and 3.5 hours from Athens), very close to Stoupa and Kardamili, which are very touristy places nearby. Riglia has excellent beaches, historical places to visit nearby and beautiful landscapes.
Riglia is set away from the local villages and is a quiet place set up near the mountains. Wonderful views of the bay and the local area. Really quiet and peaceful. Natural environment. A place to visit for the clean fresh air. It feels well hidden and a good location if you don't want to be disturbed.
There is not much at Riglia itself ( appart fron the fabulous Poliana Villas) but it is withineasy walking distance of Ag Nicolaos which is fabulous and a short drive to Stoupa which again is fabulous .Both have ample tavernas and supermarkets.
We loved the pretty villages . The drive from the airport and the smell of the herbs and flowers . As we drove by .. The region is pretty . We had a major storm which was a major incident !!! People died so my review should be taken in context .. We had some nice meals but none were amazing .. Our anniversary meal spoilt by gone off chicken !!! Lots of cats around my feet at the dinner table ... Honestly and truthfully the people just were not as friendly as they are on Zakinthos .. . The caves however were worth the trip amazing ... We have visited a few !!! These were amazing .. Car hire is essential .. I can honestly say there is kit one restuarant I would be excited to visit again . Which is a big shame
