Visit the Mani in mainland Greece. Kardamyli, in the Mani, Southern Peloponnese, is the village where the great author Paddy Leigh Fermor lived and wrote. For centuries, the Mani was wild and Kardamyli a poor rustic town. Today, Kardamyli has lost none of its real-Greek charm but boasts tavernas, cafés and organic shops. Read Leigh Fermor’s Mani and follow in his footsteps - enjoy walking along way-marked donkey tracks in the hills above the pretty coastline, past stone-built Maniot look-out towers and through Ancient Kardamyli. The sea-front hotels of Anniska and Liakoto offer tranquil, well-equipped apartments – with a private swimming pool - just one minute from the characterful main street.
France Profonde: Rustic coach house and garden in heart of medieval St Benoit. Boulangerie, patisserie, butcher, restaurant and more in village, good walks, chateaux and swimming lakes nearby.
