This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided, cultural journey by car
  • discover the treasures of classical Greece
  • spectacular landscapes of sea and mountains
  • stay in beautiful, Byzantine Monemvasia
  • hire car included

The unspoiled and wild landscapes of the Peloponnese are dotted with archaeological remains and buildings that have had great significance for centuries. Here you will come across undiscovered beauties of Classical Greece, immersing yourself in the rich cultural and mythical fabric of ancient sites, such as Epidavros; plus extraordinary medieval kastros and fortified towns like Mystras and Monemvasia. The scenery is simply beautiful, from vast, sweeping beaches of golden sand to dramatic gorges and lush forests that coat the inland mountains.
All of Greece is absorbing and rewarding. There is hardly a rock or stream without a battle or myth or a peasant anecdote or a superstition; and talk and incident, nearly all of it odd or memorable, thicken round the traveller’s path at every step.”
     
Patrick Leigh Fermor (Mani – Travels in the Southern Peloponnese)
Discover awe-inspiring scenery as you travel along the Gulf of Corinth to Byzantine Mystras in the shadow of the Taÿgetos Mountains, before crossing the fertile Laconian plains of the southern Peloponnese to the hidden gem of Monemvasia. The landscape changes as you journey north to the outer Mani where cypress-clad hills tumble into the sea and inviting gorges offer splendid walking, before a final stay in chic Nafplion, the former Greek capital.
