Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Argolis, Greece your home away from home

Located in the east of the Peloponnese, Argolis (Argolida) is a prefectures of Greece. Many people take day trips to Argolis from Athens, just across the bay, but there is so much to see and do that those who visit for just a day are often seen staying in accommodation in Argolis the next year! Argolis is a highly developed prefecture, blessed with stunning natural beauty and a range of fantastically interesting archaeological discoveries.

Things to do on holiday in Argolis, Greece

Holidays to Argolis have three features which really stand out; sailing, climbing and Ancient historical sites, although the charming villages, glorious beaches and natural beauty of the area are a huge attraction for those looking to rent a holiday villa in Argolis.

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.

The coastline of Argolis is ideal for those looking for a holiday rental with access to exquisite beaches and sailing opportunities. Argolis is lined by some stunning sand beaches, often with dramatic backdrops of hills and cliffs. Along the beaches of Argolis you not only have the chance to discover the coastline and islands by boat, but you can enjoy all manner of water sports.

Places to holiday in Argolis, Greece

Nafplion is a beautifully appealing coastal town, and the first capital of Greece after the 1821 revolution, is probably the most endearing 18th Century Mediterranean town you can find. It is adorned with some magnificent castles from across the ages, and just a ten minute drive from the holiday resort of Tolon, which boasts some of the finest beaches in Argolis.

Epidaurus (Epidavros), is most famous for its summer Festival of Epidaurus, which is held in the ancient theatre with a setting and acoustic qualities that makes it an excellent venue for any production.

Porto Heli sits on the head of the bay, opposite the island of Spetses. Whilst Porto Heli is a delightful place to visit, it is most known for the sporting facilities on offer. It is the ideal location to take holiday rental accommodation in Argolis for those looking for an active holiday, especially sailing, mountain biking and intermediate and beginners windsurfing. Porto Heli is also in excellent striking distance from the most impressive monuments of Ancient Argolis.

During the summer (from June until the end of August), average temperatures remain over 30°C, which means that coastal properties in Argolis are very popular during summer. The rest of the year remains pretty warm, with the winter months still averaging over 10°C.

Travel to Argolis, Greece

From there, there are a variety of options. You can either travel around the bay by hire car or bus, or take to the water on a ferry or by one of the high speed Hellas Flying Dolphins.

Wonderful property with the most perfect views

5 of 5
Set above the sea just outside the small village of Vivari, the villa which is one of three, has the most magical views. Sitting on one of the balconies, or the stone wall and watching the boats crossing th bay or going out to sea, could take all your time! The property is full equiped and built and maintained to the highest standards. The pool was ideal - what a joy to walk stright from the master bedroom into the pool area for that first dip of the day. I thoroughly recommend this property.

Lovely home for a relaxing time in the sun

5 of 5
Michael and his family were the most welcoming and accommodating hosts. From arranging dinner for us on the first night we arrived to checking in to ee if we need anything, they made us feel comfortable and welcome in their home. The home is situated in a village just 10 minutes outside of Nafplio so a car is an absolute necessity. The house has 3 bedrooms and a downstairs gym/ living space. The 3 upstairs bedrooms include 2 double beds and a single (most suited for a child). There are also two bathrooms located upstairs and one downstairs. The downstairs area has a double bed and the owner added a second to accommodate our group. The outdoor space is beautiful! It is equipped with a gorgeous pool, two covered patios and an outdoor grilling station. There are 6 loungers and an awesome umbrella for even more shade. I would highly recommend staying in this place. Please note that you must bring your own beach/pool towels as those are not provided and there is no cleaning service during your stay. The owner is a dog breeder, but the well behaved dogs live behind the BBQ area and are not an issue. There are many other dogs in the area, so it is recommend to keep the gate closed.
