We chose Loutraki as it seemed so easy to get to when flying into Athens. We were right. The subway/train is a very sort walk from the terminal and after less the an hour we got to Corinth. We took a taxi to the Segas using the old road at a minimal cost (Be forewarned sometimes this bridge is sometimes closed.). We booked over the phone, but got an email confirming the rate and dates.
The Segas is a modest hotel, with elevator, good sized rooms and balconies. The owners are great hosts, helpful enthusiastic and gracious. There is a grocery just a few steps away and a fridge in the room for all your goodies. The beds were very comfortable, easing all the stress of the time change. Situated just steps from the main sites and the beach, restaurants and the famous spa.
Breakfast was typical fare for Greece, and the rest of Europe should take note all the details at a fifth of the price in other countries. Yogurt, fruit, eggs, bread, fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee. More if you need.
We left the Segas with a gift from the owner, a litre bottle of olive oil - mmmmm. It made it back to Canada intact. And my husband thoroughly enjoyed his trip down memory lane snacking on pastillia, those little sesame seed biscuits.
This is the way to arrive in Greece, calm warm and welcoming.
