Located in the east of the Peloponnese, Argolis (Argolida) is a prefectures of Greece.

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.

Two families, from Europe and the U.S., respectively, consisting of four adults and four teenagers, we spent a marvellous time at the beautiful, spacious and well equipped villa. If we have one regret, it is that we did not stay more than just one week at this fantastic place, with its stunning views overlooking the sea, its splendid terraces and gardens, its gorgeous pool and patio, its excellent recreational facilities and its comfortable living and dining areas. Villa Christina is every bit as beautiful and enjoyable as portrayed by the description and the photographs in the listing; if anything, they fail to do justice to the utter charm of the place. The villa is big enough for 8-10 people to spend time together, but it also has many cozy corners that afford quiet and privacy. It is very well taken care of, and any issue that may arise is attended to immediately. The patios, terraces and other parts of the villa are cleaned every day, and the pool and gardens are looked after on a regular basis. WiFi connection is excellent, and there is private (lockable) off-street parking. Two small beaches are within easy walking distance, and it's a short drive to Porto Heli with its many fine restaurants and shopping opportunities. Christina and her husband are such delightful and warm hosts! They go out of their way to make their guests feel at home and are very much concerned about their comfort and well-being. The initial meeting in Porto Heli, the prepared meal and well-stocked refrigerator that awaited us on our arrival, the private 2-hour tour provided by Christina the next morning, and her kind (and matter of course) assistance on several occasions throughout the week made us truly feel like valued guests and friends, rather than mere customers. We would return to Villa Christina in an instant! We are convinced that other people would love it as much as we did, and we would recommend it strongly and without hesitation. Thank you, Christina, for making it possible for us to have a wonderful vacation!

Nick the owner (more later) recommended lovely individual butchers, fishmongers, bakers and fruit and veg shop in the nearest town (25 mins drive). The produce was always very fresh and these little establishments are side by side. (large supermarket also in this town). We cooked on the outside barbecue (also has wood fired oven) and ate under the stars almost every night. If you can't be bothered to cook the gardener will acquire fish from the local fishermen and cook it for you! More about Nick, a more welcoming and 'can do' host it is not possible to find. He can arrange or 'fix' anything. One of our hire cars broke down on the way from the airport. We limped into the villa and Nick arranged someone to go and buy a new battery and fit it. Problem solved without us lifting a finger. Our 18 year old daughter acquired a chest infection and one call to Nick provided an instant appointment at the local doctors and Nick drove all the way from Athens to interpret! And somehow the cost got magiced away. Everything that Nick recommended locally was brilliant and he must be one of the nicest and most helpful people around. The area is not touristy which we loved and the local people are just a delight. We drove South a bit to go to a waterside restaurant (twice) and all the way down (beautiful drive) (but watch out for some 'interesting' other drivers!) to get a water taxi to Spetses. Otherwise, did we leave the villa? You have to be kidding!
