Peloponnese suggestions please

Jump to last reply

I am hoping to get suggestions for places we could base ourselves in the Peloponnese this summer.

The details are:

Us: me, my husband and 5-year old daughter. We are Grekophiles and have been to Greece many times, mostly in August, so we know what to expect on that front. We want to try new places rather than return to places we have visited before. We love eating out.

When? August 15 - September 1. We will be flying in to Athens late on August 14th and renting a car. Will spend a night or 2 in Athens either at the beginning or the end.

What do we want from our holiday? To relax. This is our annual "down time" in the sun. We love the sea and like beaches so would like to be within 20 mins drive of a nice beach. We would like to stay in a town or village with plenty of tavernas and a nice atmopshere in the evenings. We do get bored after a week in the same place so we like to split our 2-week holiday between 2 different destinations (not necessarily far apart from each other). We don't want to spend our holiday driving but appreciate that we will probably have a long drive at the start and end of the holiday.

Where do we want to go? Well, a few years ago we went to the Peloponnese and spent a week in Tolo followed by a week in Porto Heli. We enjoyed that immensely and visited Nafplio / Epidaurus as well as every beach in that area. The one item we were sorry to have missed was Monemvasia, simply because it was too far to do a day trip. This time we want to visit Monemvasia.

We are looking for: suggestions as to two or three places we could base ourselves for up to a week at a time. We loved Tolo and Porto Heli but don't want to return there as we'd like to visit some new places.

We do want to visit Monemvasia - should we base ourselves there for 1 week? Or is there another nice town we could visit from which Monemvasia would be a do-able day trip? If we did stay there, where would be a good spot to combine it with?

Many thanks in advance

Jane
