"An ancient land of myth and legend, it combines a plethora of fascinating sites filled with a riveting history and covered in stunningly beautiful nature to create an unbeatable holiday getaway. "
The Peloponnese is the perfect blend of history, beautiful nature and gorgeous beaches, ensuring that it appeals to everyone. Its stunning beaches look out onto the sapphire blue waters of the Aegean, Ionian and Mediterranean Seas, making it ideal for a traditional beach holiday. This dovetails with inland areas of exquisite natural beauty, replete with rolling green hills, and spectacular gorges. History comes alive in the Peloponnese, offering a vast array of historical sites, where you can explore some of the most incredible cultures to have ever existed, including the warrior culture of Sparta, their great rivals Argos, the equally seminal Corinthians and ancient Mycenae, who play a vital role in the Iliad. It is also steeped in myth, with many of Heracles’ trials taking place there, and Helen, the face that launched 1000 ships, being born in Sparta.
Other places to visit include the fortified citadel of Mycenae, the monasteries clinging to the cliff faces in Lousios Gorge, the lively islands of Spetses and Hydra, and the historic city of Nafplion. That’s just a handful of the potential day trips on offer, however, with the Greek weather being the way it is and the hotels being as beautiful as they are, you may be tempted to just lounge by the pool, enjoy the spa and day dream about Arcadia. The Peloponnese is split into regions, the regions that we offer are: Eleia, Messinia and Argolida.
This all serves to make the Peloponnese a sensational holiday destination for adults and families, which blends great food, fascinating history and beautiful nature.
