We live in UK working professionals but visit our second home as much as we can . purchased this cottage in 2004

Why chose Agios Nikolaos

This is a beautiful home you can have just for your selves and family. We find people are bored of hotels and small apartments wanting privacy and the experience of living in the country they visit is so much more popular to the experienced traveller.

What makes this cottage unique

You gave the house to yourself. A lovely walk to beach. Star gazing on the roof terrace.

Lovely property in a great location to discover authentic Greece - we ate out every day and didn't have a bad meal and everyone we met was friendly and welcoming.

A bit of Magic in the Mani

  • 5 of 5

Moongrove is a lovely home to stay when in the region. It has all you need and you have the whole house to yourself giving a sense of being local and having privacy. You can walk to beach and village where there are loads of tavernas and places to visit.

The house is a perfect base for exploring the area but also if you want to stay local and enjoy the comfort of the terraces around the house and on the roof to star gaze. A lovely garden and clean tidy home. Very pleasing .

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect! Wonderful property for a 'get away from it all' break in a beautiful unspoilt area of Greece. Only the two of us but would easily accommodate a larger group due a twin room and a further double room/en-suite in a separate 'tower house' style building. Description was accurate and the owners lovely to deal with. We found the property very clean, fresh and well maintained. The beds were comfy with crisp cotton linen. There was air-conditioning which we didn't use as the April nights were cool enough. We used the wood burning stove a couple of times and there was plentiful log supply. This is great property if you enjoy walking and dont want to use the car too much. You can easily walk to a quiet beach with a couple of tavernas or to the nearest fishing village for general shopping, eating and sight-seeing. The property has loads of really nice outdoor space including a roof terrace which was great for sunbathing and stargazing. Overall we had a fantastic time and wouldn't hesitate to return.

A charming stone cottage built in local style set in olive grove and a few minutes from the sea

  • 5 of 5

Moongrove was exactly as we expected - a brilliant roof terrace for star gazing, a variety of other outside spaces for sun/shade/vistas... and very close both to the beaches, to the mountains, and to the charming harbour of Aghios Nikolaos, with its welcoming bars and tavernas. The property was shipshape and easy to keep clean. The owners sent very full information pack which was very helpful, and were very forthcoming and relaxed. We would definitely recommend this property.

A peaceful, relaxing and comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

The property is ideally locate for anyone who wishes to have a peaceful holiday. The interior was spotless, interesting and extremely comfortable. It felt like every imaginable need had been thought about and cared for. The beds were really comfortable and I particularly liked the differnt outdoor terraces which had lovely features. THe view from the roof is simply stunning and the local beaches were clean, well facilitated and with crystal blue waters. The local village has some great tavernas , bars , ice cream parlours supermarkets, touristic shops and lots of local colour while not being overly developed. A very special place well worth visiting. an authentic Grek experience . IF you visit Moongrove you will not regret it!

Ideal for relaxing beach holiday or walking holiday Moongrove is within walking distance of the quieter Pantazi beach which has a great beach bar which is a favourite of the locals and visitors alike.
