The coastal and wine region of Aigialia in Eastern Achaea – Peloponnese, Greece
Enjoy the beautiful beaches and landscapes of this beautiful area
The coastal region of Aigialia (with its capital Aigion/Egion) in the east of Achaea is one of the most beautiful and most interesting areas of northern Peloponnese.
Athens is 210 km away (airports: Athens-Eleftherios Venizelos) and Patras, the capital of the district Achaea, is only 30 km away. The airport of Araxos, which is only for charter flights, is 75km from Harmony.
This wonderful landscape is a contrast of breathtaking clean beaches of the Corinthian Gulf (Aigialia means coastline), fertile agricultural land (citrus and olive trees), lush hills (known since antiquity for its currants and vineyards) and imposing mountains. In this mountainous landscape you will find typical mountain villages, hidden monasteries and forgotten historical sites.
At the foot of the Chelmos mountain (2,340 m above sea level, a popular skiing area of this region), lies the famous town of Kalavryta. The town is reachable from the coastal village of Diakofto via the Vouraikos gorge by cog railway or automobile.
The most important archaeological sites (Olympia, Delphi, Corinth, Epidaurus, Mycenae and Athens) are easily accessible from here on a day trip.
