  • Peloponnese
  • Corsica
  • Sicily & the Aeolian Islands
  • Turkey
  • The Alentejo

  • Peloponnese
  • Canada
  • Peru
  • Sicily & the Aeolian Islands
  • Mozambique

The unnervingly mild weather of the last couple of weeks (before we all got blown away by Storm Doris) has brought us out of hibernation and dreaming of sunnier times (and climes). It's true that once we Brits get the merest whiff of warmth, summer is pretty much all we can think about. And…

Deepest Mani, the unexplored cradle of ancient Greece.

  • Greece
  • Peloponnese

Fears of driving on uncertain roads melted away in the midday Maniot heat, as we climbed through mountains that tumbled into the crystal blue sea. My reward for braving the hairpin bends from Kalamata to the Mani, was the breathtaking vistas glimpsed in between Cyprus and Olive trees on the…

Eureka Moments

  • Peloponnese

Most people are baffled when we utter the words 'The Peloponnese'. Frequently the response to our suggesting it goes as follows - "Where's that? Greece? I've not heard of that island!?" and that's precisely it; it's not an island. The Peloponnese is a beautiful green section of the mainland…

The Peloponnese: Luxury, Adventure, Culture and History

  • Greece
  • Peloponnese

I've long had unfinished business with Greece. The last and only time I'd been before my recent trip was a university holiday to the island of Ios that made the first In-Betweeners movie look like a brass-rubbing coach tour of Norfolk churches (hedonistic as they no doubt are). We got not a…

The Peloponnese, if you please

  • Peloponnese
  • Greece

Unable to pinpoint exactly where the Peloponnese might be found, I wasn't too sure what to expect from my visit. Having found it on the map, many place names were familiar; Corinth, Sparta, Olympus, the home of the original Olympics, altogether a very 'ancient' place.
