We spent a wonderful week staying in the ground level suite (Jungle) beautifully decorated by Marina Vager like all the suites. We didn’t see the other rooms, but all seem to have private terraces - so there doesn’t seem to be a lot to choose between them. The views from the private terrace to the sea from our suite were absolutely beyond compare, and we were royally looked after with a wonderful breakfast served by George each morning as soon as we were ready. Nikolas Vager was extremely helpful in providing us with all the advice we needed on the best places to visit including Mystras and Ancient Messine. Close by in the village is an excellent Taverna, also with wonderful views, and, best of all, is Santova Beach only a few minutes drive down a mountain road to the coast. This is a sandy local beach with all the facilities you could need and not a tourist hotel in sight ! If you want to experience a genuine taste of rural Greece without a hint of package tourism, this the place to stay, although a car is essential.…
Magnificent historical building, superb decoration, excellent service at Mani, one of the most beautiful places in Greece! We definetely Villa Vager Mani Hotel, thank you for the unique experience!!! For sure we are going to stay at your hotel again!
We absolutely loved our stay in Villa Vager Mani in April! The room (which is actually 2 rooms) was large enough to accommodate us and our adult children. The views from the room are so beautiful that even hanging out in the room was a pleasure, we felt so close to nature! We stayed in the Blue Room which has an adorable private balcony where we had our breakfast (breakfast was delivered to our room in the morning within minutes of us sending a whatsapp message). Service was impeccable and personable. We were given the best tips on places to visit and there are plenty of attractions in the area to warrant a long stay. It’s a pity we only had a few days to explore as there is a lot to see. We will definitely be returning in the summer for a longer vacation. Villa Vager Mani feels like a home away from home.…
Atmospheric traditional stone-built "tower", with spacious rooms, great views, delicious breakfast and very friendly owners. Located in a small, quiet village with just a few taverns hidden in its alleys, serving mouth-watering home-made local dishes. Far enough from noisy touristic spots yet close enough to Mani's beautiful beaches and mountains, as well as to Kalamata vibrant city. Great experience overall.
We had an absolutely wonderful stay.The weather was amazing and the beach was 5 minutes driving from the hotel. Also the local food was delicious and the rooms are gigantic,very clean and really comfortable if someone wants to chill.Lastly our experience was a 10/10 for sure!! I loved it!
Villa Vager Mani is the perfect base for exploring everything the area has to offer. It is a beautiful, honey coloured building, sympathetically restored, has lovely furnishings and a very comfortable bed. There are wonderful views from the many outside areas. Breakfast is of very good quality and plentiful. Would definitely return.
An amazing stay with sea view, quite and only 5min drive from Sandova beach. It is located in a small traditional village with 3 taverns 1 min walking from the hotel. Very important tip high speed internet for those who need to work I will come back for sure
We booked this hotel having stayed at the sister property in Levidi in June 2017, see my review. This hotel is a different experience. The location is lovely with views over the sea. It is convenient for Kalamata and about a 30 drive to Kardamyli. The village it is in has a couple of tavernas and churches but no other facilities. It is is a 5 minute drive to a nice beach. The hotel is in a renovated tower and a lot of care has been put into the work. The four bedrooms are all separate with their own external space. There are no public areas, or none that we were shown and not even clear where reception is. We had the Boho room which is nicely decorated if minimalist in style. A very large comfortable bed with high quality linens. good air conditioning. It was odd there was little storage. There is a large wardrobe but no shelf space and very small set of drawers so we had to leave our possessions on the spare beds in the second bedroom. The bathroom had a shower with an apparent missing sliding door and a shower head which would not stay in place, sliding down the pole. The toilet seat lid was cracked. Good towels and high quality toiletries and plenty of hot water. No bathrobes. The outdoor terrace was lovely but insufficient shade in the afternoon, some additional screening would be helpful. Very nice breakfast served at your convenience on the terrace. Servicing of room was on request rather than automatic. Strong free WiFi. Overall it was good and we enjoyed ourselves but let down by some details. On a scale of 10 I would rate it 7 so on TA’s scale I have rounded up to 4.…
Villa Vager Mani is ideally located in the outskirts of Kalamata and it is the perfect base to visit Mystras, the Gulf of Navarino, ancient Olympia and the Mani paninsula. Far from the hustle and bustle of the city, it is in a beautiful authentic village in Megali Mantinia (the gate to Mani), so you can also enjoy a nice evening stroll that ends up in one of the best taverns in the Peloponnese. Ideal for slow travelers and for those who pay attention to details.
Good taste in a recently renovated historic building, very generous space, clean, in harmony with nature, excellent breakfast, all in one place at Villa Vager Mani. Impeccable service and the hosts discreet but present as many times as necessary. An unmissable experience.
