LOCATION & TRAVEL

Peloponnese, the homeland of the ancient gods has retained its original character and is largely unaffected by tourism. Every mountain and spring is referred to in the ancient myths. The site of Ancient Olympia, where the Olympic Games first took place, has become a renowned attraction worldwide.
Kyllini lies on the western coast of the Peloponnese, in the region of Ilia, just 45 minutes from Araxos airport and 100 km from the seaport of Patras. Passenger and car ferries sail regularly between Patras Harbour and Piraeus (Athens), Corfu, Santorini and various other Greek islands and the mainland of Italy. Kyllini Harbour has sea connections to Zakynthos, Kefallonia and other Ionian Islands

Starting from Attiki Rd. [new toll-road], you follow the signs to Eleusina and from there to Corinth. Then you take the Corinth-Patras national road, heading for Patras. Reaching the city of Patras, you follow the new peripheral road outside the city and continue to the national road Patras-Pyrgos. As you reach the 60th km of Patras-Pyrgos national road, you will see the signs that lead you to “Loutra Kyllinis” and “Kastro”. A hundred meters after these signs, turn right at the sign to “Grecotel Olympia Riviera Resort”. Following the signs that you will find along the road that leads to Kastro and Loutra Kyllinis, you will reach Grecotel Olympia Riviera Resort, after a three hour journey from the city of Athens.

Peloponnese enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate of hot summers and mild winters. Average maximum summer temperatures are 26-28°C, with the average winter minimum rarely falling below 8-10°C. Some rainfall can be expected between October and April.
