Old Kardamyli, Peloponnese, Greece

In the delightful Greek village of Kardamyli, you don’t need to mail a letter, but if you were going to mail a letter this is a good place to start. Head north past the loaves on the right, may even be able to smell them if you are here at the right time of day. As you are walking, look down at the walkway beside the cafes and merchants where the path changes from stone to slate to marble, won’t find anything there, but it makes the walk more interesting.

Cross the street, a park will be on your left. Find where water flows up and look northeast. Follow the street that goes East, are those really cobblestones. On the left, pass a bright blue door flanked by two (2) fig trees, nothing there either, just to let you know you are on the right path. After you have traveled about 100 yards from the upward flow of water, you will pass a blue gate on the left.

Follow the “well lit” path, are the olives ripe? Cross the stone bridge and continue up the steps made of, you guessed it, stone. You will see a sign saying “ΠΑΛΙΑ ΚΑΡΔΑΜΥΛΗ.” Follow the path to the left passing a stone building on the left; it’s probably the only stone building around. (Jokes are good). Take the first path on the right, no surprise; it is stone, walking between renovated homes. Continue to walk down the path lined with overhanging olive trees and a wall on the left. Did I say the wall was made of stone?

As you come into the courtyard, face the Church. There will be an archway to the left—do not walk through it. Remember this is a holey area, so in keeping with the spirit of the place look at the wall to find the letter box.
