In July 2000, we had a memorable holiday in Greece with another family - Jo & her sons, John & Mark. We rented the Villa Christina, set in a tiny village a little outside the old capital, Naplion in the Peloponnese.
Jo & Ann on the balcony overlooking the villa's swimming pool. It was certainly needed. During our holiday, Greece was in the middle of a heat wave with temperatures climbing up to the mid 40's.

The 18th century Venetian fort of Palamidi, is spread across the hill, left of centre in this photo. At night this was lit up. The town of Naplion is below it to the right
