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

Ligourio is a small village in the foothills of Mt. Arahneo, in the Argolis prefecture of Greece. The main reason that visitors head to this quiet part of the country is to visit the famous amphitheatre at Epidavros, which is just 3km from the centre of Ligourio and has been hosting events since 3BC. Taking in an evening performance is a must, and if you stay in Ligourio accommodation you have just a short journey to make in order to get home at the end of an enjoyable and unique night.

Things to do in Ligourio, Greece

Ligourio has been inhabited for many hundreds of years, and the remains of the town walls of the ancient settlement of Lyssa can be seen nearby. The area is great for an easy walk or an energetic hike, and you will find that the surrounding landscape is dotted with olive groves, walnut trees and fruit trees – a far cry from more built-up cities and tourist areas elsewhere in the country. The other common site in this religious part of the world is churches. There are literally hundreds of tiny churches and other religious buildings dotted around the countryside, making for some fantastic photo opportunities.

The biggest attraction in the local area is the amphitheatre at Epidavros, a ten minute drive away. The theatre has seating for 14,000, and regularly hosts drama and comedy events, especially during summer evenings, when crowds come from many miles away to enjoy a performance under the stars. The theatre is renowned for its outstanding acoustics, and even if you are seated in the furthest corner of the venue you are sure to be able to hear with absolute clarity.

Within the centre of Ligourio village are a decent array of amenities, including small shops, a bank, a post office and a few cafe-bars. More of the same can be found a short distance away in the port of Epidavros, and a wider selection still can be enjoyed in Nafplion.

Places to visit on holiday in Ligourio, Greece

As previously mentioned, Epidavros (Epidaurus) is just a short distance away, but there are several other towns and villages also within close reach of Ligourio. One of these is Nafplion – another ancient town of sheer beauty, which was the first capital of modern Greece and is today still the capital of the Argolis prefecture.

Weather in Ligourio, Greece

Summer temperatures in Ligourio can become very hot, with the mercury often rising above 30C. This is also the busiest time of the year, and if you would rather stay away from the most intense heat and tourist crowds, consider a visit during the quieter seasons of spring or autumn, when the weather is warm and pleasant without being overbearing.

Lovely to sit on the balcony with a drink and watch the world - great views across to Nafplion and its amazing castle. Swimming good but rocky and not for young children. Also, many steps down to the sea and up to the road. Good base for touring, especially if you are interested in the history of Ancient and not so ancient Greece - Argos, Mycenae, Epidauros and, of course, Nafplion.

The photographs on the website do not do justice to the view across the bay. The sky and sea are beautiful shades of blue, I'm sure i would never tire of looking out. I took a new picture everyday (they are all the same but it looked so lovely with each new day!). The apartment is spacious, well furnished and fully equipped, with plenty of crockery, cutlery for eating, a dishwasher and washing machine to help with the clearing away and packing light, plus books, games, videos etc should you wish. Excellent wi-fi for keeping in touch with the world should you choose, or simply for researching the region. The terrace garden is very prettily done, and a table with seating and a sunlounger available. The apt is east facing, so attracts the morning sun. For late afternoon sun, the pebble beach is only a few minutes walk down steps. It was very quiet with only maybe 2-4 other people on the beach at peak time, often no-one else was in evidence. The walk into the village is 10 mins max - look for the short cut. It is a very steep uphill on the way back! There are approx 4 restaurants in the village. It was very quiet when we were there, again with only 2-4 other customers in restaurants. Menu availability was limited and basic, as someone else has remarked, but mostly good value (some catch of the day expensive by comparison). We ate in a lot. We visited Napflio, pretty old captial of Greece just around the bay - approx 30 mins drive, & Epidavros - which is more than just an Amphitheatre and is approx 1 hour drive, but despite best laid plans we did little else other than potter around, the apartment and environs made this a very comfortable and lazy way to spend the our time in Xiropigado. We tried various supermarkets, in the village, Kiveri, Astros and Argos. Our favourite was Lidl in Astros, but the ΣΚΛΑΒΕΝΙΤΗΣ in Argos and Astros also had plenty of choice, the one in Argos is very modern with lots of fresh counter foods. We like dry white wine and found the Cretan whites good value, Lidl also offered decent new world choices. Brian was very helpful throughout the booking process, and before and during our stay, answering queries quickly and thoroughly, and ensuring our (reasonable!) 'special' requests for the apartment were met. We enjoyed our break very much and would love to return.
