Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Arcadia, Greece your home away from home

The region of Arcadia lies at the heart Greece’s holiday mecca, the Peloponnese. Regularly cited as having the most beautiful landscapes in the whole of Greece, Arcadia is also one of the oldest, and you could be forgiven for thinking that the hands of time have passed the region without much affect! This really is a region which has something to offer every visitor, and there are never two Arcadia holidays the same, as visitors to the region will not be able to choose between the numerous mountain hikes, historical monuments and secluded beaches in Arcadia.

Things to do in Arcadia, Greece

The numerous mountains of Arcadia are a huge draw for lovers of the great outdoors. Visitors who enjoy walking, trekking and mountaineering fall over themselves to try to find accommodation in Arcadia during much of the year, as the spectacular scenery is crossed with paths and trails, many of which take you to ancient cities, Byzantine Churches and Frankish forts which adorn the skyline.

The coastal stretch of Arcadia is perfectly designed for beach holidays, with the Gulf of Argos consisting of a chain of carved bays and windswept peninsulas. You can choose between popular sand beaches, secluded rock beaches and mud beaches (the full body mud packs at Nea Kios are reported to have healing properties for the skin).

Places to holiday in Arcadia, Greece

Xiropigado is a wonderful seaside resort in Arcadia, close to both sandy coves and pebble beaches. Many people taking Arcadia accommodation will visit the village as an antidote to the frenzied lifestyle of many of the Greek resorts and larger cities. Xiropigado is an extremely natural place to be, where you can eat freshly produced ingredients, swim in the sea or go hiking in the mountains, all totally unspoilt by the speed and ease of modern life.

Argos, the oldest continually inhabited town in the whole of Europe, is an essential place to visit during your stay in Arcadia accommodation. Surrounding the town are ancient treasures, from palaces to fortresses, which tell the tale of over 5,000 years of occupation. However, Argos is not only for those who love items from years gone by. There is a very healthy shopping area in Argos too.

Levidi is the ideal holiday destination for serious walkers. Located high in the mountains, Arcadia holiday homes in Levidi are the base for some of the best mountain trekking.

The house is exactly as pictured, and was beautifully cool in the heatwave. We particularly enjoyed the pool area. Mikhail was on hand if needed and was very helpful. A car is definitely needed, but the house is in a great location for sightseeing, we visited Mycenae/Mikines (20 mins), Epidavros (40 mins) and Messini (under 2 hrs) by car. We would definitely recommend.

The back of the villa on approach appears deceptively smaller (a bit of a tardis)than anticipated, then you step out of the car (a straightforward two hour drive from Athens) and those views!!!! Not only the view in the main photo which is indeed stunning, but this villa also has spectacular views at night over distant villages. The lights, boats, mountains all make for an intoxicating combination. Wonderful place to see the stars at night also! The villa is perfectly equipped with everything you could need. All bedrooms are a good size and lead out on the lower level to the pool and views! Very comfortable beds and everywhere is immaculately cleaned and maintained. Quiet fans and efficient air conditioning, which was most welcome as Greece was experiencing a heatwave whilst we were there. We stayed in more than we ordinarily would, both days and evenings as it was very difficult to pull ourselves away from this idyllic spot. Our teenage children were very happy ( important to family harmony on holidays these days) with the quality of the wifi and with the exception of very heavy traffic times the speeds were very good. We spent much time in the pool both swimming, playing, but also just watching the incredible views from the infinity end! There is a very good local beach at Kondili (stony)only a few minutes drive away and another favourite of ours was Karathona (sandy)an easy but slightly longer drive away. Both have beds, umbrellas (no charge although you are of course expected to buy at least one drink) and places to get a drink. If you're going for longer most people pick up food from the bakery and buy drinks at the beach. In the local village of Drepano, a few minutes drive, are many tavernas on the market square, and great bakeries and small supermarkets. Big supermarkets are in Naplio about 20 mins drive. There is a lovely located taverna on the beach at Vivari, Ouna Ratsa Ouna Fatsa, but be prepared to have your food virtually thrown at you and in which ever order it arrives! The best thing about this villa are the incredible hosts Katerina and Dimitris. They really care about making this place perfect and that shows in everything they do. They are charming, responsive and totally committed to ensuring your stay is perfect in every detail! We'll most definitely be back!
