Things to do on holiday in Argolis, Greece

Argolis is considered to be the cradle of Ancient Greek civilisation, gaining the region the nickname of ‘Ancient Argolis’. Throughout the hills and groves which cover much of the landscape are ruins of the original city states of Greece, from ancient theatres to the beautiful Treasury of Attreus, an ancient cemetery adorned with ‘tholos tombs’. Probably the most famous archaeological find is the city of Mycenae, with the imposing Lion Gates and the city’s importance in Greek mythology.

The inland areas of Argolis are a haven for climbers and walkers, with many excellent routes, often incorporating some of the lesser known archaeological treasures. The Frachti Caves and Didima Hole are favourite destinations for walkers, and there are climbing routes to suit all abilities too. To find a challenging climb, tourist information centres have details of all the climbs and are happy to help.

We had a truly memorable holiday here last year and one of the first things we did on returning home was book again for this summer - two families with children aged 4 to 10. All ages are excited about this - we can't wait. - Yes the location is exceptional - it really is that close to the sea - Yes it is as clean and comfortable as it looks - Yes it is in plenty of space - there are neighbouring properties of course (one owned by the same family) but your privacy is not compromised in any way - Yes the property comes with any number of paddle boards, kayaks, snorkels etc - and sun loungers if that is your preference But what doesn't show in the photos is how much effort the owners put in to ensuring your stay is a good one. This starts way before you get to Greece. Some so-called great customer service can feel overbearing and over the top; here the balance is perfect - there seems to be a genuine wish to create great experiences rather than just great repeat custom. All the way down to the tiny details, the owners really took care of us and for that reason in particular we have no hesitation in recommending this place to the world. Only please leave a week spare for us.....

The view from balcony was amazing. We enjoyed our swimming in the beach front of the apartment. A foot path front of the apartment drive to the village where we found everything, taverns, coffee, super market, bakery e.t.c It is a great place to relax on the sea. Thank you Christos for your help.

Views to die for! The local people are really friendly and the owner could not be more accommodating. I was 8 months pregnant at the time, so the rest was well needed. Restaurants were really nice and the local shops had everything we needed. The beach is beautiful - wish we were back there now!!
