The Area

Discover everyday new beauty.

There are sandy beaches and picturesque coves in the vicinity, but those who enjoy walking close to nature can also visit Vassiliki forest of fir and pine trees on Mount Tayghetos, which is a 45-minute drive away. Beautiful gorges, paved donkey paths, stone-built houses, beaches with good facilities, modern shops, quaint harbours and traditional settlements make up the picture of the area. In a nutshell, the best that the mountain and the sea can offer!

Agios Nikolaos

Tradition meets modern lifestyle.

All the village shops are within easy walking distance. You will find a supermarket, a butcher’s, a pastry shop, bicycle rental, petrol station, chemist’s, and health centre with a doctor on duty 24 hours a day.

You can also walk to the several traditional tavernas and modern café-bars for a drink or a meal around the harbour, as the fishing boats come in with their day’s catch of fresh fish.

After all, that’s what holidays are for!
