Kalokeri Villas, Peloponnese

Tuesday, 18th August, 2015

The three newly-built Kalokeri Villas, which enjoy an impressive panorama overlooking the sea near Vasilithi, in the Peloponnese region of Greece, provide naturist holiday accommodation far from the madding crowd. The nearest airport is at Kalamata, 50km distant, and has direct flights from various European countries including the UK (Stansted).

Milos Bay Villas, Greece

Thursday, 22nd May, 2008

The Ionian island of Lefkas (sometimes written Lefkada) is in fact connected to the west coast mainland of Greece by a road bridge. Close to the village of Agios Nikitas, Milos Bay is rated as the best and largest clothes-optional beach on the island. With limited access and no commercialisation it’s a place to escape. However, we have just heard of some new and rather exclusive villas that have been built into the cliff-side above the shore. The four properties – said to be very private and secluded – each boast a private swimming pool and jacuzzi. There are steps down to the 1-km long beach, which comes highly recommended by Greek naturist guru Cap’n Barefoot.
