Taste the best olive oil in Greece, visit Ottoman fortresses and discover one of Greece’s most beautiful beaches, omega shaped Voïdokoilia on holidays to Peloponnese. In the heart of Costa Navarino, on golden sands fringed by inky Ionian Sea, luxurious hotels come with surf schools and world-class golf courses, private pools and five star restaurants. One moment you’re ordering lunch from a swim-up restaurant, the next indulging in salt and honey scrubs. One day cycling through the unspoiled countryside of Messinia, the next sailing to the Islet of Proti swimming among coral as the sun goes down. Whether you hike through forest to majestic waterfalls, try SUP yoga for the first time or kayak across the bay, natural beauty takes pride of place.
Away from resort life lays a whole other world of Grecian adventure. Walk though an abandoned city of ancient Byzantine ruins where only a small community of nuns now live and travel along medieval roads lined with churches, where you’re more likely to pass a cow than a traffic jam. Peloponnese holidays take you to ancient Olympia, the first site of the legendary games that inspired the modern Olympics, and to gold and ivory archaeological monuments such as the majestic temple of Zeus, the helmet of Miltiades and the aqueduct of Nymfaion. We can also tell you first-hand that you won’t want to miss the ancient theatre of Epidarus, especially come summer when the breathtaking amphitheatre, renowned for its perfect acoustics, comes alive with open-air works from the great Greek playwrights.
