From Kalamata in southern direction, a panoramic road leads through the hilly landscape. After about 45 minutes from Kalamata in northern direction, passing fields, wide olive groves and the Kambos gorge, the recently well-built road leads along gentle hills and small villages. This is how you get to the charming village of Kardamili. Already known in the writings of Homer and Asclepius as a healing place, the old village of Kardamili has preserved its charm. The upper old town with the elaborately restored Mourzinos Castle and the small Mani Museum and old fresh water springs, offer attractive local excursion destinations.
Life in the lower old town, with its small cafes, ouzerias, and nice stores, is leisurely. Quite a few people have fallen in love with the area, returning here regularly or deciding to become residents altogether, having time and interest in guests. The chirping of the cicadas is omnipresent from June to October. The many wild herbs flatter the sense of smell. A kilometer long gravel/sand beach with crystal clear water promises pure bathing pleasure. Kardamili offers itself as a starting point for various day excursions.
