Travel Information
 

Kyllini lies on the western coast of the Peloponnese, in the region of Ilia, just 45 minutes from Araxos airport and 100 km from the seaport of Patras. The Peloponnese is one of Greece’s most unspoilt regions, renowned as much for its archaeological treasures as its outstanding natural beauty. Myths and legend lie around every corner of the mountainous landscape, which is dotted with colourful villages and fragranced by olive and citrus trees, herbs and flowers. An abundance of sandy beaches, cultural and historical experiences and warm Greek hospitality makes the region the ideal destination for family holidays.

 

The region has become famous all over the world for its numerous and important archaeological findings, but mostly, for the remnants of the ancient Olympia. A big number of beautiful villages are spread all over its mountains and each one carries its own legends and traditional wealth. Every little spot of land is cultivated with olive trees, grapevines, orange trees and other. As for the coastline… the thin white sand spreads for many kilometers, by the beautiful and limpid blue sea.

 

There are many places worth your visit, spread in a short distance in the area surrounding the Resort: Beautiful landscapes, unique ancient monuments like the temple of Apollo Epikouros, traditional settlements like the picturesque Lambeia and the colourful villages of Andritsena, Karytena and Dimitsana, the famous mineral springs of Kaiafa, the seaside settlements of Kourouta and Arkoudi well known for their intense night life and the unique sunset over the Ionian Sea- and, of course, the fabulous Forest of Foloi, that used to give shelter to the mythical Centaurs.
