Villas in Greece - Peloponnese

Island or peninsula? This question is often asked when we talk about the geography of Peloponnese. Peloponnese can be reached by means of a narrow strip of land, but this was interrupted by the construction of the Corinth Canal in 1893, and now it is crossed by a bridge.  Choose to spend your next self-catering holiday in one of our hand-picked holiday villas to rent in Greece in the area and look forward to enjoying the best that Peloponnese has to offer.  The name Peloponnese is composed of the name of the mythological figure Pelops and the Greek word for island, Nisos.
