Villa
The Architect’s Villa is a light and spacious holiday home where the boundary between in and out melts. The transparency of glass, the metal structures and massive stone blocks create tensions and interesting spaces. The Architect’s Villa consists of three stone volumes, connected to each other with steel-glass elements. Its floor-to-ceiling windows and metal details are its unique characteristics. The first volume consists of two Master Bedrooms on two different levels, each with its own private bathroom. The second volume holds a spacious living room with a fireplace on the first floor and two Junior Bedrooms, a shared bathroom and a playroom for children on a ground floor. The kitchen takes the third volume which connects to the dining area where all volumes merge into one.

The Architect’s Villa stands in the middle of an olive grove and has a private swimming pool and a covered pergola to relax. The surrounding area is very calm, gives the feeling of aromatherapy. Designed in dialogue with traditional Mani architecture, the villa has an absolutely modern feeling. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: ΑΓ1131178

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Wonderful villa
We stayed at the villa for a week in August and had a fabulous time. The villa is extremely comfortable and well appointed and benefits from outstanding views. We had a truly relaxing family holiday. Lucia was extremely helpful during the booking process and during our stay which was very much appreciated. We will return!

Fanatstic place for a family to stay and relax
This is a beautifully designed house, with all modern features. The location is remote, so perfect if looking for peace and quite and the grounds, outdoor spaces and pool are very nice. Four our family stay, it was perfect. The villages are all an easy drive away, and lots to do in different directions. The hosts are wonderfully helpful and attentive too. We could not have asked for more - the perfect family getaway.

Beautiful design villa in the mountains
Very romantic and relaxed atmosphere with sea view and olive trees ahead and mountains behind. Beautiful architecture with cosy living room, well design kitchen and dinning table. We stayed here for 5 days and it was not enough!

Spectacular Villa in the middle of an Olive grove with Sea view
Perfect from the very start of booking our holiday. Luccia was so helpful and was always there to answer all the questions we had. The villa itself is excellent and as we arrived late in the evening we couldn't wait to see the view the next morning, and that didn't disappoint in any way. The view is so much better than any of the photos that are on the website. All the local restaurants and bars are the first rate and the sunset was unbelievable. All in all, this has been the best holiday we have had in a while. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough.

Absolute bliss
We spent a couple of weeks at the Architect's villa, two couples and 3 children. The place is just as nice as in the pictures but somehow lovelier. The setting in the middle of an olive grove with nothing else around, no other houses or ugly satellite dishes to spoil the sense of total privacy. The mountains behind, view of the sea above the grove and the sunsets just incredible. We found the house big enough for all of us, the kids area and bedrooms in the lower ground were perfect. The daily maid service was also great as the last thing one wants to do on holiday is worry about cleaning or tidying up. Lucia was very responsive as well which made the whole experience even better. Stoupa is only a 10 minute drive and beautiful Kardamyli 20. We were there in mid August and were dreading holiday crowds but it was absolutely fine and quiet by other holiday destination standards. Loved the house and the area and hope to be back.

Two weeks of heaven!
This four bedroom villa is going to be hard to beat. We've stayed at some impressive properties over the years and this is in the top tier. Comfortable beds, excellent space to hang out in - inside and out. The daily maid service was appreciated - she makes the beds, cleans the 3 x bathrooms and kitchen, and removes rubbish/recycling. The kids freaked out at the wasps but no-one got stung. The villa is an 8 minute drive up the hill from Stoupa on a narrow, windy road (you have to hire a car here as a taxi will cost €15-20 each way) House has air con, a washing machine, a small dishwasher, a gas BBQ and wifi (which only works in the main living area). Great area to go exploring from - the beaches up and down the coast are great for snorkelling. The only thing I would say was problematic was finding enough space in the kitchen to store all all our groceries as shelves and drawers were already occupied. Stoupa itself is a brilliant town - lots of bars and restaurants, and plenty of beach options. You can park for free near the church and spend all day here. Would recommend this villa to groups of friends, perfect for 2 x families or even 4 x couples (NB the two bedrooms downstairs are smaller than the main bedrooms)

Falling in love...means to come back again
First time in 2016 we fall in love , first time but felt home at the first moment. Warm welcome and contact with Lucia. She took care for everything from Athen as if she could see our wishes with her eyes. The house,the surrounding made for relaxed and comfort enjoying nature lovers. We enjoyed to go into our peaceful silence after taverns and beachlife. In April 2017 we were back again and this time highlights for us million s of flowers and long hikings..excellent tips and maps . June 2017 third time, birthday and again everything wonderful. We really hope to be back again..hoping that there will be space for us..
