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.

The back of the villa on approach appears deceptively smaller (a bit of a tardis)than anticipated, then you step out of the car (a straightforward two hour drive from Athens) and those views!!!! Not only the view in the main photo which is indeed stunning, but this villa also has spectacular views at night over distant villages. The lights, boats, mountains all make for an intoxicating combination. Wonderful place to see the stars at night also! The villa is perfectly equipped with everything you could need. All bedrooms are a good size and lead out on the lower level to the pool and views! Very comfortable beds and everywhere is immaculately cleaned and maintained. Quiet fans and efficient air conditioning, which was most welcome as Greece was experiencing a heatwave whilst we were there. We stayed in more than we ordinarily would, both days and evenings as it was very difficult to pull ourselves away from this idyllic spot. Our teenage children were very happy ( important to family harmony on holidays these days) with the quality of the wifi and with the exception of very heavy traffic times the speeds were very good. We spent much time in the pool both swimming, playing, but also just watching the incredible views from the infinity end! There is a very good local beach at Kondili (stony)only a few minutes drive away and another favourite of ours was Karathona (sandy)an easy but slightly longer drive away. Both have beds, umbrellas (no charge although you are of course expected to buy at least one drink) and places to get a drink. If you're going for longer most people pick up food from the bakery and buy drinks at the beach. In the local village of Drepano, a few minutes drive, are many tavernas on the market square, and great bakeries and small supermarkets. Big supermarkets are in Naplio about 20 mins drive. There is a lovely located taverna on the beach at Vivari, Ouna Ratsa Ouna Fatsa, but be prepared to have your food virtually thrown at you and in which ever order it arrives! The best thing about this villa are the incredible hosts Katerina and Dimitris. They really care about making this place perfect and that shows in everything they do. They are charming, responsive and totally committed to ensuring your stay is perfect in every detail! We'll most definitely be back!

Very clean and maid also came during our stay to change beds and towels. As Kiveri is a holiday destination for Greek families it can be noisy, we didn't venture on to any of the beaches as they were too busy .Luckily the apartments have their own private stoney beach which was peaceful. The water is fabulous to swim in.
