Land of Olympia


Summer holidays on endless beaches


At the gateway to the Ionian, a rapturous synthesis of sea, sand and history.

Hills with olive and lemon trees, exotic beaches, magical sunsets, trawlers leaving the port for the catch of the day and a rich historical and cultural heritage are proudly on display. With every sort of accommodation available, from ultra-luxurious hotels to camp sites, Kyllini guarantees comfortable organized holidays for families, couples and groups of friends; those seeking exciting excursions or just precious moments of tranquility.

Nearby Amaliada, with its fairytale beaches in the west and verdant wooded hills in the east, offers opportunities for excursions for those environmentally and archaeologically inclined.

Roman Baths of Kyllini 

In the Thermal Baths of Kyllini, you can supplement all the fresh air from your seaside jaunt with some seriously relaxing hydro-therapy. Open the tap on wellness and revitalization to fill your holiday to the brim with all your favourite things.


Within sight of one castle are the remains of another, namely Glarentza, adding a further touch of nobility to Andravida. In the northern part of the agora of Ancient Ilida, the 4th century theatre still stands with its characteristic earthen auditorium.

At the foot of the ancient acropolis overlooking the archaeological site, lies the Archaeological Museum of Ilida, whose exhibits can give you an insight into both public and private life in antiquity.

Finally, the National Resistance Museum of Amaliada takes you up to the 20th century and the years of the Nazi occupation and the Greek Resistance.

Religious pilgrimage

Start your tour from the Holy Monastery of Vlaherna, famous for the miraculous icon of Our Lady of Vlaherna. It is situated in a splendid valley, hospitable and open to the faithful, making its annual festival is among the most warm-hearted events in the Peloponnese calendar.

You should also take in the 11th century Monastery of Fragavilla, one of the most famous monuments of Christian architecture in Ilia.

Less cosmopolitan, with the distinction of a blue flag, Glyfa satisfies those who want a sandy beach combined with peace and quiet while popular Kourouta lends itself to water sports and activities of all kinds. In Palouki, the happy campers among you will have your fill of dives into the sea and relaxing star-lit evenings next to the gentle waves.

Crossing an artificial forest will bring you to the well-known beach Thines Vartholomiou, which owes its reputation to the blue waters and the exotic sandy coast.

From now on, whenever the sea and sun mood takes you; lift off for summer in captivating Kyllini!
