Stunning, that’s the best word to describe Gerolimenas. Well not the town as such, which is pretty, but its setting at the end of a bay which is dominated on one side by a huge cliff which is called Cavo Grosso. There is not much to do in the town itself but it’s a pleasant mooch and it’s worth taking a quick look at the posh Hotel Kyrimai which is, well, very posh and has a pool.


Accomodation options in Gerolimenas are rather limited. Hotel Kyrimai is at the top end of the scale and Hotel Akrogiali on the waterfront looks pleasant but always seems to be booked up. Airbnb has a few options in and around the village but many are quite pricey.

The drive to Gerolimenas is pretty wonderful too, past deserted coves, tower houses, sleepy villages and ‘The Frying Pan’ and the roads are empty, just the occasional car. It’s a long drive to get there from Stoupa and after Areopoli I don’t think there are any supermarkets so make sure that you have all the essentials with you [plenty of water and snacks].

The Frying Pan.
