Agios Nikolaos Mani South Peloponnese

Aghios Nikolaos is a very pretty fishing village located in the Mani, a stunning region in the southern Peloponnese, the coast of Greece defined by travel connoisseurs as The New Côte d'Azur. Set dramatically against a backdrop of crystalline aqua-blue waters, majestic cypress trees, wild olive groves, verdant rolling hills and distant snowcapped mountains, it is one of the most picturesque of villages that overlook the calm seas and splendid sunsets of the Messinian Gulf. 3 hours and 45 minutes' drive from either the capital of Athens or the port of Patras, and just 45 km from the nearby city of Kalamata, it remains a hidden pearl in the south Mediterranean: a small, traditional Greek fishing village with enchanting stone maisonettes, lush gardens, a lively harbour and lovely beaches.
