Discover the beautiful backdrop of Before Midnight

20th May 2013 Print

The much-anticipated Before Midnight, the third in the cult film trilogy starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, hits the big screen on 21 June. Filming took place in the southern region of the picturesque Peloponnese peninsula in Greece, an area that is rich in ancient ruins and unspoilt scenery.

The trilogy of indie films, directed by Richard Linklater, is renowned for showcasing the beauty of the destinations to which the couple venture, and Before Midnight is no exception. Much of the movie was shot in peaceful Kardamili in the Mani region, popular with writers, artists, walkers and nature-lovers. Home to the legendary travel writer, Patrick Leigh Fermor, whose sea-front home features in the film, the village occupies a beautiful spot on this legend-filled and scenic stretch of coastline.

Independent operator Sunvil Holidays has been operating to the Mani region for 21 years and features a handpicked selection of apartments, villas, boutique hotels and cosy cottages. Its wealth of experience in arranging flexible holiday options throughout the Peloponnese remains unrivalled.

A seven-night self-catering stay at the Liakoto Apartments in Kardamili costs from £664 pp (two sharing). The price includes return flights (Gatwick) and transfers. A seven-night fly-drive itinerary spending two nights in the Mani, one night in medieval Monemvasia, one night in Mystras, next to the famous Byzantine site, or the nearby seaside town of Gythion and three nights in ancient Pylos or historical Methoni costs from £849 pp (two sharing) including B&B, flights (Gatwick) and car hire. This year, clients will benefit from direct flights from London Gatwick with Germania, the full-service airline exclusively chartered by Sunvil which, unusually, features full catering, a 20kg baggage allowance and seats that may be pre-booked.
