The storied Peloponnese region was named after the mythological hero, Pelops, and history and legend are all around. This is where gods rampaged, where the Ottomans, Venetians and Persians fought their wars, and where the Olympic Games and Europe's first major civilisation were born. Evidence of this treasure-trove of history is everywhere - from the ruins at Olympia to the Temples of Apollo and Octavia in Corinth - but the region offers far more besides. The remarkably authentic and beautiful coastline is a favourite of the Athens elite, and luxurious bolt holes are two a penny, with the small harbour town of Porto Heli and adjacent islands of Hydra and Spetses home to the cream of the crop.
