Because this area of the Peloponnese is such a popular destination, many people have decided this is where they want to have a holiday home or in lots of cases, move permanently here. This is very much in evidence with all the new buildings popping up on the hillsides and spare land behind the beaches and resorts of Stoupa and Ag. Nik.
Ok, most of the houses are built out of stone and are quite tasteful, but there are just so many now. This area is in danger of becoming Costa'd, as most of these houses are out on a limb in small complexes. I just hope that the owners of such places make some attempt to intermingle with everyday Greek life and don't stick in their own little nationality groups.
Some of the bridges we encountered really didn't look structurally sound and we wondered whether they were ever inspected.
We inspected this one before we crossed!!
