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.

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.

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.

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!!
