The top destinations for unforgettable Christmas in Peloponnese

Three top destinations in Peloponnese promise that this Christmas in Greece will be unforgettable,  in atmospheric boutique hotels along with good company, hot wine and the warmth of a fireplace.

Christmas in Orini Arcadia

Orini Arkadia is just a few hours away from Athens and it allows us to immediately feel the magic of Christmas. The stone-built mountain villages of the mythical land of Pan seem to have been specially crafted for Christmas time. In a snow-white landscape, we live the Christmas fairytale enjoying delicious meals and plenty of wine at traditional taverns, village hopping in cosmopolitan and alternative villages, from Dimitsana and Karytaina to Elliniko, and strolls among smoked chimneys and paved squares. The most active of us enjoy skiing and snowboarding at Mainalo ski center, while the rest of us are watching the snow from the windows with a cup of aromatic tea or hot chocolate.

Where to stay

The hidden gem in the center of the traditional settlement of Elliniko in the region of Gortynia in Peloponnese, Elafos Natural Boutique Hotel & Spa, offers you many reasons for a Christmas getaway in the nature. Elafos Natural Boutique Hotel & Spa is a new hotel in Arcadia, that adds doses of refined luxury to your stay, promises tranquility by the fireplace, offers the necessary relaxation in the spa and gives many excuses for a getaway full of experiences. Enjoy 3 dreamy nights at Elafos, from 420 euros.

Christmas in Mani

Who said that Christmas is inextricably linked to the mountain? The wild beauty of the landscape and the sea breeze compose the most alternative scenery for alternative Christmas in Mani. At this mysterious destination, we will get carried away by the sound of the waves, we will admire the imposing towers of the historical land of Mani, we will travel to the stone villages of Vathia and Monemvasia and we will reach the southernmost tip of mainland Greece, Cape Tainaro. Instead of skiing, we will be enchanted by myths about the Christmas goblins with the children and we will eat Christmas bread, local "tiganides" and delicious traditional cuisine next to the fireplace, overlooking Cavo Grosso.

The gifted by nature Trikala Korinthias immediately gets us into the spirit of Christmas, generously offering the three good things they are famous for; here we inhale pure crystal mountain air, we admire the rich vegetation due to the running waters and we enjoy rustic tastes in the three picturesque districts accompanied with abundant local wine and tsipouro. We become one with the white snowy landscape and visit the ski resort of Zireia for skiing and snowboarding or just to see the snow from the glass windows drinking hot coffee and chocolate. We are strolling in the cobbled squares, we visit churches with rare frescoes and enjoy festive meals in the atmospheric restaurant of a luxurious resort.
