Luxury Peloponnese Holidays

Olive groves and the Olympics

Peloponnese

The Peloponnese is spot on if you're looking for peace and tranquillity – its rugged coastline is fringed with sweeping, half-empty beaches and pine-coated cliffs, while inland, there's quiet, olive tree-dotted countryside to explore.

As well as its natural beauty, mainland Greece's southernmost region is also a hotpot of culture. Olympia is within reach of the coastal resorts (you can still see the remains of the stadium that hosted the very first Olympic Games), as is the ancient city of Mycanae, an archaeological treasure trove steeped in Greek myth and legend. Old Arcadian towns and villages like Korinthos, Ilia and Messina are worth visiting, too. 

Drive up into the hills, and it won’t be long before you spot a vineyard. This part of Greece has been in the wine-making business for centuries, and there are some fantastic red, white and dessert wines produced here.

I'd recommend hiring a car for at least part of your stay. The area around the Costa Navarino is incredibly scenic, and there are lots of unspoilt beaches and quaint towns in easy reach by car.

Flight Information

The flight to the Peloponnese is around 3 hours 30 minutes from the UK. 

When to go

Early summer is a good time to visit the Peloponnese, with warm temperatures in the early to mid-20s that keep things comfortable for sightseeing. July and August is when the heat really kicks in, often climbing into the 30s. Like most of mainland Greece, the holiday season is a long one with plenty of sunshine between May and October. 

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece

Tipping

In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers. 

Introduction to languages

The official language of Greece is Greek.  English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
