Romantic getaway

A holiday on the trail of passion

Land of discovery

Hands entwined, exchanging glances, knowing that your most romantic holiday ever is coming up in the land of Discovery.

Love is in the air in Western Greece. The land of Discovery has everything required to have two hearts beating as one; traditional villages, magical sunsets, mouth-watering cuisine, warm and welcoming accommodation as well as a variety of activities in nature to raise the spirits even higher. What more could you ask for?

Romantic escapes to Nafpaktos and the picturesque villages of Mountainous Nafpaktia

Among the first on the list of romantic destinations comes enchanting Nafpaktos. A short enticing hop from Athens, it makes an ideal getaway with its idyllic shores and rolling landscapes. Delectable homemade fruit preserves will sweeten your ardour and a drop of the local tipple in the Venetian harbor will lighten your heart and head. Mountainous Nafpaktia, mountains embroidered by nature’s own hand, overflows with beauty into your own euphoric cup. Once there, seek out your own cozy, little nest amongst the quaint stone house of traditional Ano and Kato Chora flanked by chestnut trees. Throughout the area, there are numerous opportunities for shared adventure, striding out along hiking routes or heading giddily skywards to magnificent mountain tops. Walk to the river Evinos from the beautiful central village of Platanos or climb from Neochori to Arahova – the views are your reward! Dine with your partner in one of the traditional taverns or share moments of wellness in the thermal baths of Stahti.



Sunset over the Messolonghi Lagoon and a stroll through «Little Venice»

What could be prettier than a bicycle ride along the road that connects Messolonghi to the islet of Tourlida? On your way, in the embrace of twilight’s spectral canopy, you’ll feel more in love than you’ve ever been before. In Aitoliko – or “Little Venice” as it is often called – pause for a coffee in a traditional café with a view to the “pelades”, the hamlet with ornate wooden houses. Round things off by trying the exquisite fish roe served with local wine and exchange your vows of love in the fading embers of the day.

Script your own love story in the leafy lanes of the land of Discovery; a heaven for affairs of the heart!
