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

Nafplion is among the most beautiful cities in Greece. Sandwiched between two fortress crowned peaks, the old Greek capital is filled with beautiful old buildings, villas and fortifications, making the undisputed jewel of the Peloponese. There is a huge amount to see and do from a Nafplion villa, from the beaches of the Pelopennese to the world famous archaeological discoveries of Mycenae and Epidaurus.

Things to do on holiday to Nafplion, Greece

There is a huge amount to see whilst you wander the streets of Nafplion. As you arrive for the first time, the route through the suburbs is fairly unprepossessing, but once you arrive at the seafront, the maze of cobbled streets will almost certainly make you fall in love with the town. The old centre is wonderfully romantic, with plenty of seafood restaurants, beach cafes and atmospheric tavernas in which to sit and look out over the water towards the Bourtzi island fortress. Tours to the Bourtzi Fortress leave from the harbour. The oldest fortress, the Akonafplia is well worth investigating from Nafplion accommodation, as is the Palamidi Castle high above the town.

Nafplion is not a beach town yet there are some magnificent places to place your towel within walking distance of the centre of town. The most popular is Arvanitia Beach, a short walk from Palamidi, although Karathona has the finest sand. If you are looking for more beach facilities, the beach resorts of Kios and Irion are both under 15 minutes away by car.

There are also stunning archaeological sites in and around Nafplion. The impressive ruins of Tiryns and Asine are fascinating, and the panoramic views across the countryside are equally spectacular. However, two of the most spectacular places to visit from a self catering Nafplion property have to be the UNESCO acclaimed ruins of Mystras and the sensational Theatre of Epidaurus, carved from bare rock.

During the heat of the summer, the allure of the beach can easily become overpowering! Luckily, the resort of Porto Heli is not far from Nafplion accommodation. The resort is known for its water sport facilities, which are second to none in the area. The beaches are excellent, providing a well earned rest for weary limbs after a morning of exploring the most impressive sites in Greece.

Weather in Nafplion, Greece

Travel to Nafplion, Greece

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.

Peaceful and tranquil location, but not far from Argos ( bustling, friendly town with great market ) And Nafplio (elegant seaside resort) Charming and helpful host Eleni. Didn't want to leave and would definitely go back.
