Location: Greece is blue seas, blue skies, scattered islands, white washed houses and friendly people. Greece is also soaring mountains, quiet roads, beautiful scenery, rare birds, abundant wild flowers, sunshine, good food, and fascinating historical sites.
The Peloponnese in southern Greece, has all of these things and Porto Heli, just two and half hours from Athens, is the ideal base from which to sample them. There are many lovely houses here, tucked away in the hills or by the sea.
The lively, friendly village of Porto Heli embraces two beautiful bays, it encompasses the seemingly endless beaches at Ververonda, sandy bays in Hinitsa and Limenakia as well as the myriad of coves and bays at Kosta that face the islands of Spetses and Hydra.
The village itself has a wide choice of restaurants, tavernas, bars and nightlife. One of the nicest things about the area is that you can choose to join the bustle in the village or relax at a quiet beach side taverna.
Food: Porto Heli is the summer hideaway for European royalty and the jet set, many of the world’s most beautiful yachts can be found anchored in the bay while their owners enjoy themselves in the tavernas and clubs.
Restaurants and tavernas are generally of a very high standard serving mostly local produce picked or caught the same day and served in style with the wine of your choice. Pizza and souvlakia for fast food addicts. Delicacies worth trying are fresh anchovies, crisply fried or marinated in herbs and lemon, charcoal grilled octopus, deep fried squid, delicately coloured red mullet or a giant grilled fish. Local lamb tightly wrapped in paper with herbs and fresh vegetables then baked in the oven will revive the most jaded appetite. In addition a wide variety of vegetables and salads is an essential part of the Greek diet.
Activities: Each area around Porto Heli has its own special character and most people like to do some exploring while on holiday. If you want to stay close the sea there is an abundance of islands to visit. You can start with the popular whitewashed island of Spetses, 10 minutes by small boat from the mainland. Followed by a visit to Hydra, an artist’s traffic free paradise, or drive up the coast through the lemon groves to Poros. The intriguing walled city of Monemvassia, though not strictly an island, is well worth a visit. It is reached after a peaceful 3 hour journey by excursion boat along the Peloponnese coast. It is essential to sample inland Peloponnese. It has a mystical beauty emphasized by the constantly changing light and colours in the mountains and around the ancient sites. The area is easily reached by road or sea from Athens and there is a wide choice of daily flights both schedule and charter into Athens.
