Many people know the famous Côte d’Azur in the French Riviera. But who knew that Greece’s Peloponnese has a pretty similar area with amazing turquoise waters, Mediterranean vegetation, super luxurious hotels, and amazing villas next to small ports full of expensive yachts?

Saint Aemilianus or Agios Emilianos in Greek, near the popular Porto Heli, has everything you need.

Stunning beaches with the background of the sun-kissed Mediterranean landscape, attractive luxurious villas, and amazing modern resorts.

These beautiful shores are hiding some small and private beaches that offer you a stunning view of the island of Spetses.

Because of its proximity to Greece’s capital, Athens, Agios Emilianos is a place that has attracted dozens of elites from the country and the World. Businessmen, actors, entrepreneurs, and celebrities have all built their holiday houses there.

As for the origins of the name? It is due to the little church that is located in the area, dedicated to Saint Aemilianus (Emilianos).
