A UNIQUE CASTLE HIDEAWAY
Monemvasia is many things: island, ancient cliffside town, fortress, beach. Its relatively remote location — a four hour drive from Athens — deters crowds, providing a private and special experience. Monvemvasia is my first stop when I land in Greece; I rent a car from the airport, and power through the drive. There isn’t much I do here beyond swim, relax, and enjoy my surroundings… so its the perfect place for me to get over my jet lag. Its two hours away from my family’s ancestral village, which is always my second stop in Greece.
