A coastal city where the Peloponnese peninsula meets the Greek mainland, Corinth is a little slice of ancient history – one of Greece’s biggest towns back when Romans ruled these shores. Its ruins are dominated by the imposing Temple of Apollo and the fortified hill of Acrocorinth, as well as an archaeological museum and a modern city centre. Only an hour from Athens, it’s an atmospheric spot to break your journey on to the Peloponnese or the Greek islands – here are the best places to stay.

Hotel Marko

This basic but modern 28-room hotel lies in the coastal town of Loutraki – a 20-minute drive north of ancient Corinth – which is a somewhat retro spa town that’s still a weekend hotspot for Corinthians and Athenians. Marko’s no-frills rooms and relaxed breakfast cafe are just metres from the seafront. Take a taxi to Corinth’s ruins and museum, or drive onward to northern Peloponnesian sites such as Mycenae, which is 40 minutes away, or Epidaurus, an hour away.

ENALIO Suites

A coastal village slightly west of Corinth city, Lechaio has a shingle beach and pretty, low-rise architecture. Its Enalio Suites apartments sit right on the water, with a lap pool and comfy loungers in a tranquil garden – as well as dove-grey sofas and sleek, white bedding within its chic, exposed-stone walls. An al fresco jacuzzi and a cushioned sun deck add a touch of luxury, and meditative sea-view balconies make this a soothing post-sightseeing stop.

Wyndham Loutraki Poseidon Resort

The Wyndham Resort is in buzzy Loutraki – the hotel’s most-luxe suites have sprawling stone balconies with loungers and plunge pools, all jutting out towards a clear sea view. Facilities include a decent gym, a seaside-inspired spa – where you can book outdoor massages – and rows of neat loungers and parasols on the hotel’s pebble beach. It’s an especially invigorating stop for watersports fans, who can cue up jet skiing, canoeing or even scuba diving with the activity centre.

Hotel King Saron

This large-scale resort in beachy Isthmia, at the other end of the Corinth Canal, has its own tennis courts, kids’ club, nightclub and parasol-shaded beach loungers served by a handy cocktail bar. A vast poseur’s pool dominates manicured waterfront gardens, and rooms come in calming shades of palest grey and unvarnished pine. The Saronic View restaurant echoes the silvery leaves of the olive trees that decorate it, serving up prettily presented seafood and salads.

Pefkaki Boutique Hotel

This stylish boutique hotel is set around a smart wooden deck, behind which pristine, minimalist sea-view rooms – plus a couple of stand-alone bungalows – cocoon a well-dressed set of guests amid polished-concrete floors, marbled bathrooms and balconies. The well-regarded Perla restaurant serves up freshly-baked rolls and quinoa salads at sunbaked al fresco tables, and a stunning infinity pool looks out over the sparkling Gulf of Corinth.

  • Club Hotel Loutraki

    Given that there’s a sizeable casino on site, guests should be prepared for the Vegas-esque palms, sculpted columns and echoing marble lobby that greet them at this seaside behemoth. Room decor is somewhat dated, but the facilities are generous and good quality – including a cavernous spa with indoor pools, a spacious gym, buffet restaurant and selection of outdoor pools. It’s surprisingly family-friendly, too, with kids’ club activities and a lazy river in the grounds.

    Kalamaki Beach Resort

    Kalamaki is in relaxed, seafront Isthmia, with a showstopping pool terrace: all sculptural white loungers and prim parasols in perfectly-spaced rows, set around a blinding turquoise swimming pool with a decorative mini-temple. Just metres away are the clear waters of the Saronic Gulf, accessed via a grainy shingle beach – inside you’ll find a calm, light-flooded lobby and simple red, white and gold rooms. Should you want to get hitched, there’s also a petite whitewashed Greek chapel in the grounds.

    There’s a homey feel to this modest guesthouse, a short walk away from Loutraki’s busy beach. Patterned bedspreads and neatly folded towels greet you in snug white rooms furnished with the bare essentials. Downstairs, you can grab an unfussy continental breakfast in the sunny yellow cafe space, before heading out to stake out your space on the beach, check out Loutraki’s waterfront bars or set off on a sightseeing mission.
