A supply of olive oil from the trees in the garden is provided for guests' use. We leave many cooking essentials such as salt, pepper, vinegar, lemon juice, soy sauce, herbs etc. for the convenience of our guests in return for their replacement should any run out during their stay. There is a large PIR-operated floodlight covering the lane outside the entrance for those late night returns and a large water tank to provide back-up water during the inevitable summer outages. The house is cleaned immediately prior to guests arrival and one change of bedding and towels is provided per week of stay. Cleaning equipment and materials are provided in the house. Extra cleaning, laundry and taxi services can be arranged at cost via our local agent who also serves as a point of telephone contact throughout your stay. Finally, all guests are emailed comprehensive, up to date information prior to arrival including directions, instructions and recommendations. Please refer to the photos for further information. More

There is a selection of basic supplies: salt, pepper, vinegar, soy sauce, lemon juice, sugar, etc. provided in the kitchen cupboard so that you don't have to buy any of these afresh.

Please just replace anything lost or broken on a like-for-like basis and let us know by email. Most breakables were sourced from the upstairs of Katerina's hypermarket in Stoupa.

About the neighbourhood
Eating and Drinking The tavernas of Stoupa are generally excellent - possibly due to the upmarket clientele that Stoupa tends to attract and the stiff competition between them. Top of our list is ’Pritzipas’, the ‘blue & white’ taverna on Kalogria Beach which offers super-fresh and tasty food, reasonable prices and a classic Greek taverna experience except for the surprisingly efficient service (think paper tablecloths and carafes of water and wine). To sit at here at sunset, if only for a carafe of wine, is a special experience in itself. ‘Ageliki’s Spitiko’ at the Northern end of Stoupa’s main beach offers food made with many home-grown ingredients has honest prices and white linen tablecloths. Go in the evening though as the lunchtime fare can often be yesterday’s leftovers. ...
Getting around
The nearest public bus stop is 2 minutes walk from the house. Four busses a day pass in both directions connecting the nearest villages of Kardamyli to the North and Agios Nikalaos to the South. Aghios Nikolaos is also a pleasant walk from Stoupa along the coastal cycle path with Taverna Maniatiko conveniently located half-way.
