Discover Mystras & Peloponnese
The extraordinary diversity and richness of the Peloponnese will capture your soul
Astonishing natural beauty, ancient and medieval landmarks and a special energy that continues to inspire creativity and enlightenment … the drama of the landscape surrounding Euphoria Retreat is but a microcosm of the Peloponnese.
With a backdrop of Mt Taygetus, rising to a full 2,407m above sea level, the grand scene of nature and adventure spills out before you as you arrive at Euphoria Retreat. The combination of deep ravines and a dark green blanket of fir and pine trees gives the tallest mountain in the Peloponnese an aura that begs to be explored on foot or simply admired from afar.
Dominating the foreground is the fortified town of Mystras, fought over by Franks, Venetians, Byzantines and Ottomans, and now a UNESCO World Heritage site whose Byzantine splendour of impressive churches, palaces, fortresses and cobbled paths continues to transmit its mystical energy as strongly as ever.
