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.

We really loved it and enjoyed our stay immensely. The villa is amazing: very clean, very spacious and luxurious, beautiful pool with lots of room for the children and an unforgettable view! We chose this villa because it was a great central spot from which we could visit some of the important sites of Ancient Greece (Mikines, Épidavros) and also Nafplio (a beautiful city!). We also drove to the byzantine city of Mistras and to the small port of Ermioni. The villa is also very close to a few beaches (Tolo, Karathona). When we arrived after a long day of driving through the mountains of the Peloponnese, Katarina and her husband and their two children came to great us in a taverna in Drepano (a small village close to the villa) and we followed them to the villa, a few minutes away by car. They showed us around and had already filled-up our fridge with the essentials for the next morning, which we truly appreciated. They were also so helpful throughout our entire stay (by bringing us a yoga mat when they noticed that we were practicing a bit of yoga, for example). We cannot thank them enough. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone wishing to spend a week in this beautiful region, to discover some of the wonders of Greece. The entire family was sad to leave such a fantastic villa.

Dora was always concerned about our wellbeing. For a family that loves to stay all day long at the beach and maybe go home for lunch or for a rest, the appartment is perfect: it is 2 minutes walk from the beach and has aircondition. Tolo is a small tourist-village, many of the tourists are Greek and it is possible to take a ferryboat-trip from Tolo to Hydra and Spetses or to go to Nafplion by bus. We were very happy to stay in Tolo and had two great relaxing weeks and the water was perfect for children: clear water and not too deep. Tolo is very small and it is a bit complicated to get from the airport in Athens to Tolo: the easiest is to take a taxi and it costs more or less the same for 4 persons as going by busses.
