Monuments from every period of the eventful Peloponnesian history, great archeological sites such as ancient Olympia, Epidaurus, Mycenae and Tirynth, Byzantine churches, unique settlements and amazing castles, natural beauties such as mountains, forests, rivers and caves surrounded by the sea, beautiful beaches, sandy and smooth coasts on the west – rocky and dentelated on the east, make this part of Greek land ideal for holidays, touring, sports and connecting to the history and culture. It is not accidental that especially during the summer season many tourists arrive in Peloponnese from all over the world to travel around it. Such trip is very popular and well known.


Tastes which linger in the memory

One of the most persistent memories we have is of the aroma and taste of home cooked food. The warmth, the sense of security and intimacy associated with home cooked food are universal experiences.

Greek cuisine, rich with authentic flavours and aromas represents an age-old cultural unity. Women are at the forefront of this tradition. Playing the key role in the family microcosm, they have borne the responsibility for prudent handling of ingredients. Their ingenuity has left its mark on the character of Greek gastronomy.
