Guide to Kyparissi

A beautifully preserved secret amongst discerning travellers.

A favourite with royals, presidents and the Superyacht Set, Kyparissi’s isolated location ensures it remains one of the best-kept secrets in Greece.

Sitting like a gem along the east coast of the Peloponnese mainland between Nafplio and Monemvasia, the tiny fishing village of Kyparissi has been beautifully preserved in its breathtaking, unspoilt charm. This a place where you can really relax and escape from the world. The area actually comprises if three villages built into the mountain range, the highest of which is Vrissi with its running spring and scattering of orchards and olive trees.

Down a steep and narrow road is the second village of Parilea which offers a two of the three picturesque white-pebble beaches in the area and some fantastic tavernas serving fresh fish, meats, cheeses and excellent local wine. One of the beaches separates Paralea from the third village of Metropolis, a favourite with Athenians who come to get away from city-life over a long and lingering weekend.

Kyparissi is the perfect place to visit during a charter vacation in Greece, where you can relax and unwind amongst the traditional buildings, restaurants and local people before returning to the luxury of your superyacht. Its location is also close enough to busier nearby areas such as Monemvasia, Mystras and Elafonissos to head out for a day exploring the more cosmopolitan areas and historical monuments.
