Luxury holidays in Gerolimenas

Seeking somewhere rustic and remote? We have just the place. Gerolimenas is right at the end of the mythic Mani peninsula, the wildest part of mainland Greece, right on the fingertip of the Peloponnese (next stop, Africa). The journey isn’t the simplest, but therein lies the beauty – you’ll feel as if you’ve reached the end of the earth at this adorable fishing town, surrounded by stark and arid countryside, crumbling mediaeval towers and that impossibly blue water.

When to go

You’ll have a shorter drive if you travel during the summer season – May to October – when there are daily direct flights to the closer Kalamata airport. It’ll be even quieter outside of those months, of course, but you’ll have to drive from Athens airport (it takes about four hours).

Getting there

  • Planes

    British Airways, Easyjet, Lufthansa and Aegean have direct flights to London to Kalamata airport from May to October.
  • Automobiles

    You’ll need wheels for roaming the rugged countryside – there are legendary caves, ancient churches and sandy coves to be conquered in this part of the Southern Peloponnese.
