The Peloponnese is a region of outstanding and diverse beauty. Here the traveller encounters impressive mountain peaks, orchards, olive groves and towering rocks above the sandy beaches of the Ionian Sea and the blue waters of the Aegean. Appealing to widely differing tastes, it is a wonderful area of Greece to explore.
"Pelops, the son of Tantalos, king of Lydia, came to Pisa in Elis and with his swift steeds won the hand of Hippodamia, daughter of king Oinomaos. Pelops became eventually the ruler of all the land beyond the Istmus and gave it its name: Peloponnesos.
The fragrance of citrus blossoms fills the air and wild poppies set the fields ablaze. In this sun-baked land men and women have lived,realised their destinies and their passions and created their own unique civilisation" (Thanasis Valtinos).
