Thank you Dave for showing me some of the best routes in my country (Greece).
However you missed one of the best bits in missing out the Mani peninsula. As I am retiring in Mani this September I would be delighted to show you one of the best places in the world!
I can’t think of a better area in Greece to retire to. There’s definitely something special about Mani!
I regret not cycling there, as it has a fantastic feel to it.
I did take a road trip there last year though. Didn’t see it all, but got a good taste for it: Mani Road Trip
If you haven’t visited it yet, the Patrick Leigh Fermor House is worth seeing in Kardamyli.
