Lovely, quirky old property in a fantastic position, literally two minutes from the central square and all the sites, but in a peaceful street with no passing traffic.
The house has high ceilings and big rooms, and has the feel of a traditional Greek home. Two bathrooms, one on each floor, large kitchen with dining area and a large lounge. The decoration and style is traditional and kind of higgledy, so if you are into minimalism and clean lines it may not be for you. As mentioned elsewhere, the two floors have an outside staircase but this is easy to manage.
Outside, the are several balconies with lovely views of the town - you can see the castle from one and the Bourtzi and sea from several others. Pretty paved garden with seating and shady fruit trees.
There are steps up from the old town so you do need some degree of mobility to get up to it, but this is all part of the charm. We didn’t have any problem finding the house and followed the clear instructions provided. There are plenty of easy landmarks to orientate yourself from once into the Nafplio experience.
The town itself is really beautiful, there is plenty to do and see, and lots of good eating.
Beautiful house surrounded by olive groves - and orange, lemon, pomegranate and fig trees too. Lovely sense of peace and stillness, but only 10 mins away from bustling Koroni (or a 30min walk with some very steep hills!)
We had a lovely week here with our 10 month old. Rosie the host was so very helpful and accommodating: She provided both highchair and cot, spoke with a doctor on our behalf when the baby was unwell, and even sent a friend to go to the chemist for us.
The house itself is comfortable with a number of outdoor spaces and lots of thoughtful touches - mosquito nets, beach umbrellas, a well stocked kitchen, a hammock in amongst the olive trees.
Agia Triada beach - a 2 minute walk through the olive grove - is breathtaking, and in October was completely empty even on warm sunny days.
I think it would be impossible not to emerge from a week here feeling at peace with the world....
