Village & Sea
The typical greek village and the sea
Paralia Sergoulas is a little village of about 250 inhabitants. It is located in one of the most beauftiful places at the Gulf of Corinth on the greek mainland. It managed to preserve its typical greek atmosphere until today and hectic progress has hardly reached the village. Traditions are cultivated. This can be experienced at many secular and religious festivities throughout the year. Tourism is only weakly developed in this coastal region, most of it takes the interstate outside the village to more remote destinations and does not disturb. Paralia Sergoulas remains a village of Greeks and even during holiday season you will find few foreigners, although the infrastructure improved considerably in past years. Here, people mostly farm (lemons, oranges, olives), grow vegetables, keep goats or make a living from fishing. Traditionally, they meet strangers with friendliness and regard them as guests. Anyone who has visited Paralia Sergoulas can rightfully say: "I was in Greece!“ Here you are in the "belly of Greece“.
Sergoulas has several taverns where you can choose from a number of freshly made classical greek dishes and even during peak season they always offer – unlike in the touristic parts of Greece – fresh fish. If you want to try another particular speciality (moussaka, rabbit in red wine sauce or filled tomatoes, peppers...) the inkeepers are happy to fulfill this whish on order.
