Greek Riviera


With its genuine Aegean flair, the Greek Riviera is a tranquil, well-curated microcosm that attracts adventure-seeking yachters, astute art collectors, and sun-yearning flâneurs from around the world. Nestled on the east coast of the Peloponnese at the edge of the Saronic Gulf, the Greek Riviera has been a distinguished destination for elite Athenians since the 1950’s – due to its cultural heritage, an aura of elegance, raw natural beauty, and proximity to the capital. Enchanting coastline gracefully fringed with hidden coves and turquoise waters harmonize with the rolling hills covered in deep-green olive groves and ancient pine. From the small fishing-village-turned-resort town of Porto Heli to the historic car-free islands of Spetses and Hydra, the Greek Riviera is a seafarer’s paradise and the place to be when it comes to retreating in the gust of charismatic jet-setters, royals, and native socialites. The treasures of nearby archaeological sites include Epidaurus with its UNESCO-protected amphitheater and Sanctuary of Asclepios – the most renowned healing center of the ancient world. The legendary citadel of Mycenae, the ancient capital of Nafplion, the village of Didyma, the Temple of Hera close to Argos, the Byzantine monastery of Saint Dimitrios, and many others can be explored at your leisure.
