Peloponnese

Peloponnese

With a combination of nature, culture, sun and sea to rival Greece’s many islands, the Peloponnese peninsula may just be the perfect spot for your holiday break. Connected to the mainland by the Isthmus of Corinth, the Peloponnese peninsula is one of Greece’s less-visited regions, offering plenty of opportunities to escape the crowds. As the home of the world-famous Kalamata olive, the site of the very first Olympic Games and with endless unspoilt beaches to explore, it has everything for either a relaxing or an adventurous getaway. Those in search of a romantic break, meanwhile, can explore secluded coves and waterfalls and indulge in the fresh Mediterranean cuisine and warm hospitality of the locals.

Blessed with hundreds of miles of Mediterranean coastline, the Peloponnese is home to some of Greece’s best beaches. If you visit only one, make it Voidokoilia, in Messinia, a beach shaped like the Greek letter omega, with intense blue waters — although be aware it’s popular and has no facilities, so arrive early and take supplies. A favourite among residents is Simos, on Elafonisos island, where divers can see the sunken city of Pavlopetri, an ancient archaeological site. Finally, Selinitsa Beach on the Mani Peninsula is a wonderful spot, home to the shipwrecked Demetrios,

Timeless villages, ancient monuments, medieval castles, rich history, natural beauty and spectacular beaches make the Peloponnese a year-round holiday destination
The Peloponnese is a destination for all seasons, with a rich history and landscape. Destinations of authentic natural beauty, each with their own distinctive characteristics, stand eager to welcome you all year long: Messinia, Elafonisos, Monemvasia, Mani, Porto Heli, Kalavryta and Nafplio. It’s the land of Ancient Sparta, home of the holy olive grove and the birthplace of the Olympic Games. War, peace and culture saturate the cities and countryside of one of the most beautiful destinations of mainland Greece.

NAFPLIO
Nafplio is often dubbed the most romantic town in Greece, thanks to its jaw-dropping Venetian architecture and abundance of neoclassical mansions-turned luxury hotels.

TOLON
About 30min from Nafplio, Tolon has grown into a successful tourist resort from a small fishing village while retaining its traditional Greek charm. Built around the curve of a sheltered bay, Tolon has a very long sandy beach.

KARDAMLYI
Kardamyli is a spectacularly beautiful seaside village located in the Mani, a stunning region in the southern Peloponnese,.. 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 prettiest of villages that overlook the calm seas and splendid sunsets of the Messinian Gulf. 3 hours and 30 minutes' drive from either the capital of Athens or the port of Patras, and just 35 km from the nearby city of Kalamata, it remains one of the south Mediterranean's best-kept secrets: an exclusive, small, unspoilt resort that boasts stately villas, enchanting stone maisonettes, lush gardens, a picturesque harbour and fantastic beaches.

PORTO HELI
This cosmopolitan hangout in the Peloponnese has it all. Beautiful beaches backed by the sun-kissed Mediterranean landscape, attractive summer villas and yacht marinas, the island of Spetses across the narrow straits, fresh fish and a lively nightlife … just a few highlights of Porto Heli and Ermioni, a destination for the cognoscenti.
