Today we left our little place in Xiropigadou and head down to the southern tip of Peloponnese. The scenery on the way was spectacular.
We stopped in Mystras, the site of a Byzantine church and ruined castle which overlooks the plain of Sparta. We have taught Quinn and Zinnie to exclaim "ancient footprints are everywhere."
Our new location for a few nights overlooks the sea, but is a few kilometers up a rugged mountain.
We are staying in a self-catering stone house in a complex of similar ones, all run by the same family.
From one side of the house we see the high mountains,
And from the other the sea.
