Perfect accomodation for families
In summer 2014 we spent two fantastic weeks in at Olive Villa with our children. The owner, first of all, he is a extremely kind and happy to help us for a perfect and comfortable accommodation, also with fresh fruits from the garden around! The villa is simply beautiful, fully equipped of everything for 2-3 families. Beautiful sea- view close enough to the village and beaches, and to super market. Excelent for a restoring vacation!
The main house
The house was first built in 1964 owned by Emilios Hourmouzios, a well-known Greek journalist and director of the Hellenic National Theatre. It is a Greek traditional stone house with a large green yard completely harmonized with the landscape and fully renovated but still retaining its notably indoor and outdoor architectural elements.
Ancient Epidaurus village is next to one of the world’s best known archeological sites,the ancient theatre of Epidaurus built between 340-330bc. The most famous ancient theatre with its amazing acoustics and capacity up to 15.000 people, which is part of the site of Asklipios Epidaurus,the ancient god of well-being. Every summer, performances take place as part of the Epidaurus Festival inaugurated in 1955.
Next to the theatre is the Asklepieion, the sanctuary of Asklepios, a healing center in ancient times, where attending performances were thought to be a great method to heal from disease.
The archeological museum is nearby the theatre, enclosing interesting collections of findings.
Also a notable site of interest and very close from the Villa (10 minutes driving distance) is the little ancient theater of Epidaurus which still hosts dramas and performances.
The city of Nafplio
For a more cosmopolitan feel visit Nafplio, 40 minutes away from Epidaurus. The town was the capital of the First Hellenic Republic, from the start of the Greek Revolution in 1821 until 1834. With its rich history,a superb Venetian castle and many cafes and shops as well as bars and clubs for a night life experience is recommended.
If you want a mid-week cleaning of the house and change of linen and towels, there is an extra charge of 50€.
