Villas, mansions and luxury resorts surrounded by olive groves – simple and seductive pleasures
This cosmopolitan hangout in the Peloponnese has it all. Beautiful beaches backed by the sun-kissed Mediterranean landscape, attractive summer villas and a stunning new resort, Amanzoe’s of the Aman Resorts chain, yacht marinas, the island of Spetses across the narrow straits, fresh fish and a lively nightlife are just a few highlights of Porto Heli and Ermioni, a destination for the cognoscenti.
Hidden gems of Porto Heli
Just 5km from Porto Heli, the site of the ferry crossing to Spetses impresses with its many fine and large villas.
Discover the unexpected charm of this small town with its neoclassical buildings, narrow streets, stone walls decked with flowers and well-tended windmills topped with colourful roofs. Kranidi perches on rocky hills encircled by the pine forest of Agia Anna and overlooks the entire area, softening the wild landscape of the Peloponnese.
The famous Kilida prawns
Around 10km northwest of Porto Heli is the village of Kilada, famous for its prawns and its handsome shipyard. The fishing boats you’ll find bobbing in the harbour are a characteristic sight. But keep your eyes and appetite fixed on the main prize; those sumptuous prawns!
