Do you want to spend some intimate time in one of the most romantic destinations in the world, blessed from the Goddess of Love? Do you know why couples gravitate to the Peloponnese during the first blush of love? Maybe because Greece is the birthplace of the winged God Eros, the son of Aphrodite; the God that with his quiver and arrows inspired artists and writers over the centuries to praise the virtues of love or maybe it’s because this is where one of the oldest love stories ever to be recorded, between Paris and beautiful Helen, began.
Set out on a journey through time and experience the sheer medieval beauty of wonderfully preserved stone-built settlements and fortified towns spread all over Peloponnese. Be the knight or princess of your childhood fairytales in the Byzantine town of Mystra or experience the unique combination of natural beauty and mythical cultural heritage during a walk at dusk along the seaside walls of Methoni. Add an extra touch of romance on a warm afternoon under the towers of Limeno, at a private dinner in a honeymoon suite overlooking the Ionian Sea, on a cool night at a quiet beach on the Messinian side of Mani, or even during a gourmet meal at a good restaurant in Porto Heli.
The two most romantic destinations of the Peloponnese are without doubt Nafplio and the medieval fortified city of Monemvasia, the homes and walls of which are witness to centuries of whispered promises and secret assignations. When you’re in love, though, there are many more destinations where you can get in touch with such feelings.
The Peloponnese offers a vast array of choices for a weekend break or a longer romantic holiday. Whether you are looking for an ideal honeymoon destination or just a romantic escape, the beauty and diversity of the Peloponnesian landscape forms the most romantic backdrop to celebrate your love.
