A few kilometers from Gythion, on the enormous Mavrovouni beach, camping Meltemi is a good option for those who need make an ‘organized’ stop. It offers plenty of shade and the possibility to make a half-day stop at half the price.
Taking advantage of my latest visit to Mycenae, I had the chance to have a look at the two campsites close to the archaeological site. Camping Atreus, which was a pleasant surprise and camping Mycenae, unfortunately in the shadow of the competition.
It is situated in a beautiful location, with a private beach and clean sea. Prices negotiable and relatively cheap, it also offers the possibility to use only as a camper-stop with no overnight stay. This camping also falls into the category summer camp for adults.
Most, if not all residents are permanent. The caravans give the impression of having put down roots. You can see enormous kitchens complete with refrigerators, sinks, ovens… whatever you can imagine. It can be a good place to spend the holidays, although you have to get along with neighbors, but I do not think it’s a good choice for motorhomers passing by who wants to stop only a night or two.
