We are driving from Athens in late May. Our plan is to stay in Tolo for a few days, then Gythio, then somewhere around Pylos, perhaps stopping in Stoupa for a couple of nights also. We want an unhurried trip with time for relaxation as well as exploring and walking, so have limited ourselves to the south. However, in order to get back to Athens for the flight back it will be necessary to find somewhere to stay on the way so that we are not more than an hour or two drive from the airport (our flight is at 13.15). One possibility would be to return to Tolo for the last couple of nights, but just wondered if there was an attractive alternative to avoid backtracking - I looked at the area around Corinth, which is handy for getting back to Athens, but does not look all that appealing. Any suggestions?
