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.

Flights to Ligourio, Greece

Our group of 6 adults was very happy staying at the property, but this place is also set up perfectly for children (swings in courtyard, crib in master, many toys). So charming and its nice to be able to do laundry while on vacation. Everything is walking distance. We were there in late July and the weather was unseasonably warm (100+ degrees when we were expecting high 80s) and the shady courtyard was a cool retreat. The property owners were very responsive and concerned with the comfort of their guests. They were easily contacted and very quickly had the air conditioning repaired after it failed during the heat wave. Highly recommended!

The cottage offers everything you need for your stay, BBQ, full kitchen facilities, a beautiful courtyard which is fantastic for enjoying the beautiful weather and eating breakfast. The upper deck offers some great views and is a fab sun trap. Would recommend to anyone looking to make a home away from home. Hope to return next year, thanks Greg and Gretl 😊
