This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided, cultural journey by car (hire car included)
  • discover the treasures of ancient Greece
  • spectacular mountain and coastal scenery
  • stay in remarkable Olympia
  • option to add a stay in magnificent Athens

The Peloponnese remains one of the undiscovered beauties of Greece and has a very distinctive feel. It is unspoiled and wild, rich in mythology and history and, wherever you visit, you brush against a rich cultural fabric of ancient sites, such as Olympia and Epidavros, and extraordinary medieval castles and fortified towns like Mystras and Monemvasia. Above all, this is a region of spectacular scenery, with vast, sweeping sandy beaches, lush gorges and forested mountains that stretch far inland.

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. The scenic variety is astounding, and the sense of history that enriches the experience is, as the great travel writer ‘Paddy’ Leigh Fermor himself claimed, both absorbing and rewarding.
