Villas in Peloponnese

The Peloponnese gives you everything you could want from a traditional Greek holiday. From relaxing on a secluded, sandy beach overlooked by nothing except a single taverna, to following in the footsteps of the ancient Greeks by exploring the dozens of historical sites nearby – this lovely part of Greece has it all. Fantastic views combining the coastline and the mountains covered with olive trees are typical of this beautiful region. Stretching from south west of Athens down to the picture-postcard coastal villages of the Mani, visitors to the Peloponnese can combine the tranquility normally associated with the quietest of Greek islands with the opportunity to sample a bit more of what the country has to offer. Medieval remains, old Venetian castles and Byzantine palaces provide a glimpse into a glorious past, and for those with a passion for the history of sport, Olympia, where the Olympics first took place, gives visitors a fascinating insight into the origins of the Games.

Peloponnese - Stunning coastlines in a legendary setting

Travel to the southernmost coastline of the southernmost peninsula and you’ll discover what many others have not. Here our Peloponnese villas are one of our best kept secrets. Few destinations can boast such a rich ancient history, beautiful coastal landscapes and idyllic lifestyle.

  • Peloponnese Food

    Culinary experts will know that Kalamata, the second largest city in the Peloponnese, lends its name to the succulent dark olives so prevalent in the region. Peloponnese cuisine is typically Greek, with an abundance of fresh, simple ingredients forming the basis of the local specialities. Lemons, figs, olives; freshly caught fish, lamb and feta cheese aged in barrels all feature widely, supplemented by timeless classics like chicken souvlaki and moussaka

  • Peloponnese History

    Few parts of the world are so rich in the history of human civilisation. From the moment you enter the ‘gateway to the Peloponnese’ at Corinth, home to the famous canal, you are never far away from a place steeped in legend. From the ancient cities of Sparta & Olympia, through to the remains of tiny local settlements dotted across the whole region, there is a reminder of a bygone era everywhere you care to look.

  • Peloponnese Beaches

    Characterised by shallow, crystal clear waters, the beaches of the Peloponnese are perfect for adults and children alike. There are plenty to choose from too, ranging from those with a stretch of golden sand to tiny coves where you could be the only ones soaking up the sun. Many of them benefit from the natural shade provided by olive or tamarisk trees, or if you’d prefer, just nip to a beachside taverna for a cooling drink..!

  • Peloponnese Nightlife

    For many of us, nothing beats sitting by the sea front in the early evening, enjoying a drink whilst watching the little fishing boats chug in and out of the harbour before deciding on where to go for dinner. You might be in the mood for a romantic night time stroll or just for a quiet supper in a tiny taverna watching the gorgeous sunset – the choice is yours…!

  • Peloponnese Holidays - Points of Interest

    • Visit the acropolis at Stoupa for a panoramic view of the village and sea beyond.

    • Buy the freshest of fish for your evening meal from the local fishermen at Aghios Nikolaos

    • Have a break from the beach for a day and take a drive into the mountains

Night life for us was restaurants, there were no clubs pubs or paddies bars which is why we like it, it is proper Greece, all run by Greeks. The surrounding countryside and villages are fabuloust. Great food lovely little beach. Overall great.
Nothing about the area other than too many people know about it now thanks to the defunked Thomas Cook. The area is really lovely.

Fabulous countryside, quaint villages and excellent restaurants - once you get away from the cheap package holiday tourists
Stoupa has lurched down-market and is now like Benidorm, with rooms at 20 euros a night. Coach loads of cheap holiday tourists. The deck chairs are 6 rows deep on the beach, so close you can touch your neighbour. Kalamata airport cannot cope with the numbers - we were forced to wait for 2 hours outside the terminal building queueing for check in, as coach after coach dropped people off. No longer the quiet, car-hire-essential, secret destination that is was a few years ago.
