A piece of ancient Greece with all its charm of hospitable people, ancient traditions and serenity in everyday life ...
can still be found in the Messenian harbor village of Agios Nikolaos. The natural stone houses, pensions and studios offered to guests are kept in the traditional Mani style from the rock of the gray Taygethos Mountains and lovingly furnished for its mostly individual guests whose focus is on relaxation, originality and tranquility.
Many creative people from all over the world have chosen this catchment area with its particularly charming atmosphere as their adopted home. Here they find motivation and creativity for their work. The gently rolling hills are covered by the everlasting silvery-green of the olive groves. The traditional olive harvest begins in mid-October and continues well into January. A special time also especially to experience friends and family. Traditional dishes like lamb and goat are prepared and the fireplaces are lit. Around the harbor and on the promenade are small fish taverns and nice bars & cafes.
The fishing boats bring your nightly catch in the morning to offer it fresh at the harbor.
Many nature lovers deliberately prefer this time of conviviality after the summer months to experience hiking and exploring the surrounding area with all its Byzantine past, fortified towers and old mountain villages.
It is a cozy place. Visitors will find here a small, romantic fishing village. Funny on the water of the harbor pier rocking colorful kaiki boats and nets mending fishermen, convey the image of ancient Greece.
Nice and lovingly furnished taverns (for fish mezedes), a post office, bakery, several small mini markets, cafes & the dear sun... charming, manageable. Especially popular for its view, snacks and refreshments is the lovingly run Lithos Cafe`directly on the promenade. The Rafti tavern in a small side street is a meeting place for good, local cuisine with fish and lamb specialties - small money!
On the small harbor promenade, "big politics" are made and the weekly lottery ticket is quickly handed in, with the hope of the big jackpot.
But actually nobody wants anything to change...
And that is also good.
Simply a small fishing village, where in the evening couples in love sit on the quay wall at sunset, only a few meters away from the large Greek family, which just comes from nearby Pandazi or Kalliopi beach and stops by for a frappe` at Kostakis.
Simply beautiful to "escape" from the increasingly hectic everyday life at home and to really relax again ...
