Peloponnese / Intro

Jun 04, 2018

This is the day we start our journey through the Peloponnese area of Greece. The following month we’re going to explore all the beautiful places of this region. Giving you an inside on what are the most beautiful places to check out.

Most people know Greece from its beautiful islands with their white houses and endless blue sea.

But the mainland of Greece has so much to offer too, we are really in love with the endless nature, authentic villages and the real culture of Greece. This is why we’re sharing our discoveries with you via our (daily) journal and Instagram.

With Transavia you can fly directly from Amsterdam to the biggest city in the Peloponnese region, Kalamata. We chose to fly via Thessaloniki, first Transavia and then Olympic Air to Kalamata.

Close to Thessaloniki Airport there is a small upcoming area with taverns and cafe’s along the beachside. This area is called ‘Perea’ and we went there for a nice Greek lunch and some Freddo Cappuccino’s before our next flight to Kalamata.

We can definitely recommend flying with Olympic Air for a domestic flight. The stewardess were very friendly and nice. And to top it off, luggage up to 23K is totally free! What other airline can say that in 2018!

Kalamata airport is very small and only 15 minutes away from the city.

We rented a car through Delta Rent, who gave us an awesome price for the entire month of June and drove to our hotel Pharae Palace (which has the best breakfast ever!) on the boulevard of Kalamata, overlooking the sea with its port.

If you want to stay in Kalamata we would recommend you to stay in a hotel or apartment near the beach or boulevard. (Hotel suggestions will follow soon)

When the sun sets it’s nice to take a long walk along the promenade where a lot of small restaurants, cafe’s and coffee & sweet shops are located.

This is also how we finished the day, enjoying the sea breeze while eating a Pita Gyros :)
