Spring in Western Greece
Spring time escapes in Western Greece
Nature wakes from the lethargy of winter and invites us to a feast of colours and aromas.
Forests with heavenly scents, calm blue lakes and lagoons, verdant valleys, footpaths where colorful wild flowers pop up, rivers with powerful waters; a wonderful cascade of images of spring in Western Greece. The mild weather and a chance to avoid the crowds lead us to small and great escapes in its newly blossoming landscapes.
Spring time excursions
It’s the best time to see archaeological sites! Ancient Olympia is like something out of a dream in this season. A carpet of bright green unfolds to reveal its monuments basking in the reflected sparkle of sea and sand. Carry on to ancient Ilida, where athletes prepared for the Olympic Games, and ancient Thermo, the «Acropolis to all of Aetolia» and you’ll find the springtime spell remains unbroken.
Enjoy the comings and goings in the fresh air and sunshine in traditional seaside towns of Astakos and Mytikas and enjoy a coffee under the plane trees of the square of Thermo. Take romantic walks in the Castles of Nafpaktos, Vonitsa and Hlemoutsi in Kyllini and lose yourselves in the magical vistas that spring concocts.
