I would like to write few sentences about Gythieio as the perfect base to stay and explore Peloponnese. We found really goo offer for family apartment in this hotel. Breakfast was tasty, staff extremely helpful. Great hospitality. We felt like at home. For me city is one way along coast. Pack of restaurants, small shops, bars. There is not beach in the city but if you have car or any boat you can explore any beach around the city. We had 5m RIB boat. It was not a problem to park it in port (90 CENTS :) for 5 days). It is perfect base to explore interesting places. Only 40 minutes by car to Diros cave, or more than 1,5 hr by motorboat (be aware of waves near cape). We found fantastic village in south of city. A few houses and all of them in "castle architecture" Alipa. House made food in the only one taverna in the village. Longest trip by our boat was to Elafonisos Island (fantastic Simos beach). We went from Gythio to Crete (KIssamos) by ferry. From Gythio to Crete is ONLY 180 km which is a lot of easier/shorter trip than ferry from Pireus. On the way ferry stays at Kytheria and Antykytheria. The perfect vacation ever in Peloponnese.
