We stayed here for a week in mid September 2018 where we enjoyed perfect weather. The flat is as described, very comfy; with two bathrooms, and an exceedingly well equipped kitchen. We liked the fact that there were, as stated, dishwasher tabs and washing machine detergent available, also various condiments (which we added to). The walk down to the shingly beach is quick and easy and the beach was practically our own. (It's a shame that beach towels aren't provided, but we found that the market in Nafplion sell them for 5 euros.)
A car IS essential- we had planned to make our way from Athens by public transport but there are only 2 direct buses each day - although one nearly every hour to Nafplion, where we ended up by hiring a car from Hermes Travel- recommended. We really appreciated that parking had been arranged nearby because it was impossible to park by the apartment - for the whole of our stay there were two cars parked there that didn't move, meaning it was impossible to turn round (a better driver than myself might have no difficulty reversing up and round the corner though!).
The walk into the village (via the shortcut) takes 15 to 20 minutes at most and there are several tavernas by the sea which look very attractive - the menus though, this late in the season, are rather misleading - most of our choices were unavailable. Of the two food shops in the village one appears to have variable opening times but the other (the nearest) is reliable and sells all the (limited) basics including fresh milk, fresh bread, great olives and other essentials. For a larger selection, we took Brian's advice and shopped in the first supermarket you get to in Astros (10k). There is a Lidl in Argos (20k), and markets in Astros on Fridays, and Nafplion on Saturdays, so we did LOTS of cooking.
We had a great time, the place is really very peaceful, and the neighbours friendly.
Located about 5 minutes drive from the beautiful town of Nafplio, this apartment suited me and Sara perfectly. Spacious, with a great BBQ area, Danai our host was helpful, friendly and accommodating. Within a short drive are the amazing sites of Epidurals, Mycenae and Tyrins. Great value for money, thoroughly recommended.
