We travelled to Arkoudi which is in the western Peloponnese in Greece and stayed in the quiet and modern Almira Hotel. Given that Arkoudi is a bit out of the way we were nervous about what to find. Arkoudi is a small village with a lovely little beach (although it got a hammering from a bad storm on our last day. I hope it has recovered). You can walk over a rock to a long and sandy beach that has various accomodations alongside. Arkoudi has a few really nice tavernas at reasonable prices and the hospitality of the locals is welcoming. Arkoudi is not a haven for Brits, as the tourists were predominantly German, Italian, Greek or Russian, all of which were sociable. The Brits appear to set up camp in Zante or Kefalonia. We had a little car to get us from Araxos airport and found Arkoudi quite easily. It is set in a lovely part of Greece and we took a journey to Ancient Olympus (about 60km). The hotel had lovely rooms and the food in the restaurant was very good at a competitive price. For those who don't want hussle and bussle and don't mind being away for Brits it is a nice place to go. We loved it.
