Spetses

Spetses

There can’t be too many islands where tourism has developed owing to the close proximity of a British Naval Training Base, but Spetses is one of them. During the 19th century officers from the nearby training ground would come to enjoy the island whilst on leave. As a result the neoclassical Hotel Poseidonion, as imposing as it is impressive, was built to accommodate them. Spetses holidays offer grandeur, wealth and are ideal for a more private and low-key getaway than the other Greek islands.
