Located in the southwest corner of the Peloponnese just two hours from Athens, few tourists visit Messinia, but those who do often find themselves falling in love. The landscape will take your breath away, with everything from verdant valleys, olive groves, mountains and sandy beaches with calm waters for swimming to picturesque fishing villages and majestic Venetian fortresses. This is a place to discover a more laid-back way of life, where beaches are not filled with row after row of sunbathers and visitors come to appreciate its unspoiled beauty and authenticity.
