What we came up with

Travel around the Peloponnese, through the foothills of mountains, across sandy beaches, and to see striking gorges.

Itinerary Highlights

  • Athens - 2 days
    Begin by visiting ancient Athens, staying at The Grand Bretagne hotel in the bustling city centre. The 19th century building is a longstanding landmark hotel, and has hosted famous guests ranging from Winston Churchill to Sting. Walk beneath the Acropolis hill, passing through places such as the fascinating New Acropolis Museum, The Ancient Agora, and the neighbourhood of Plaka. Admire the neoclassical architecture of the Zappeion, situated in the National Gardens, or visit the Monastiraki Flea Market for an assortment of curios.

  • Spetses - 3 days
    Travel onwards to Spetses, where the exquisite Poseidonion Grand Hotel awaits. Opening in 1914, Poseidonion quickly became the favourite haunt for royalty and wealthy Athenians, and the hotel retains this air of grandeur. Rich in history and natural beauty, Spetses is a vibrant island to explore. Visit the island's glorious (albeit pebbly) beaches, of which Zogeria, Agioi Anargiroi, and Agia Paraskevi are the best for a refreshing swim. Alternatively, enjoy a romantic trip around the island in a horse-drawn carriage, admiring the seafront Captain's Mansions and the island's narrow cobbled streets. From the main port of Dapia and the lighthouse of the Palio Limani, to the historic House of Bouboulina, Spetses has a range of cultural sites to discover.

  • Monemvasia - 5 days
    Set among picturesque vineyards, citrus trees and olive groves, is a converted medieval manor house, which is now the Kinsterna Hotel & Spa. The hotel organises activities in the local area, and guests have the opportunity to help with the grape harvest, go on boat excursions, and visit the surrounding Mediterranean beaches. A day trip to the rocky island of Monemvasia is a must, home to a beautiful castle town and reached from the mainland by a narrow causeway. Visit a natural wonder which is featured in the Atlas of Geological Monuments of the Aegean - a rare and impressive petrified forest lies east of Neapolis, with trees that have turned to stone.
  • Mani region - 4 days
    Resting close to the southernmost point of the Tainaro peninsula, where the Ionian Sea meets the Aegean, The Kyrimai Hotel can be found. A converted 19th century customs house, this spectacular hotel is a member of the Historic Hotels of Europe. Enjoy a delicious breakfast served on a wooden deck overlooking the sea, and then head out to explore the Byzantine churches, rugged landscapes, and quaint villages, which the Mani region is famous for. Whether it is a visit to the picturesque capital of Kardamili and the towers of its old town, a day exploring the beaches of Ritsa, Foneas and Pantazi, or a trip to the castle of Stoupa, there is plenty to keep you occupied.
