Holidays to Koroni put you right in the middle of traditional life and ancient historical sites – friendly Greek hospitality's the finishing touch.

Pure Peloponnese

The sound of gulls gathering at the harbour, the gentle lap of the Mediterranean Sea, quiet cobbled streets and cute stone cottages – Koroni's fishing town perfection in the heart of the Peloponnese. It's been a popular spot for centuries, with all the quaint tavernas and golden sand you'd expect from a Greek getaway.

Olives in their homeland

An hour's drive away is the Peloponnesian hotspot of Kalamata, home to a vast sweeping beach, lively tavernas and – best of all – world-famous olives. Here, you can nab a bottle of extra virgin olive oil from one of the town's markets, and pick at homemade meze under the shady awning of a seafront taverna.

All on your doorstep

Koroni's full to the brim with holiday delights. Culture-rich, it has museums, churches and monasteries, not to mention the striking castle that commands its oceanfront. And a 10-minute walk around the corner, Zaga Beach stretches down the coast, where loungers and bars wait for the daily pilgrimage of sun-worshippers.
