About the property

Large apartment sleeps 4 surrounded by olive groves and minutes from beach

Large luxury apartment in Greece overlooking the sea in the Peloponnese. The stunning views look out towards the Greek islands of Egina and Agistri. The village of Ancient Epidavros is nearby with its good restaurants and lovely harbour. The beach is only 300 metres down the hill. The apt which has one very large bedroom and sleeps 4 is bigger than most with 2 bedrooms in Greece, is set between olive groves and lemon trees overlooking the sea in Argolid Greece, is not far from Nafplio and near the ancient theatre of Epidaurus. The Peloponnese is wonderful for visiting historical sites such as Epidavros, Mycenae, Nafplio, Corinth,and Athens is easily accessible. The apt is fully equipped with cutlery crockery and glasses for six and has air-conditioning in the bedroom. The living room is large and comfortably furnished including fridge, washing machine and full cooker.

Both the bedroom and the living room has french windows opening onto the terrace.

The Parthenon of Athens: It may be of interest to know that several guests who brought a telescope with them, have seen the Parthenon from the properties on a clear day.

We drink the water from the tap, which is very good. However, bottled water is readily available from the village, and the little grocery shops at the bottom of the hill.

The spacious bedroom has a kingsized bed, and a single bed, which together with the sofa bed in the sitting room, provides very comfortable accommodation for up to four. We have had several families of four staying, and all have praised the standard. The one thing that everyone does as soon as they get out of the car on arrival is to stare spell bound at the view. The beach is at the bottom of the hill with sun loungers available at no cost - first come first served basis, which are attached to a really lovely beach bar with attentive staff who will bring drinks and food to your sun lounger. The apartment is well equipped with place settings for six including wine glasses. There are adequate cooking utensils and kitchen knives. Tea towels are provided.

perfect apt, views to die for, ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is large light and well equipped. The views from the private stone terrace are breath-taking. Good restaurants and bars are within easy reach, and the village has all amenities and a lovely harbour. The Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus is about 20 minutes away, and Nafplio, the first capital of modern Greece is 30 minutes away with its medieval fort. We had a fantastic time.

Classical Peloponnese location with superb hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 2 weeks at Villa Rosa. It is one of the best apartments we have ever stayed in. We chose it for its location - its proximity to a number of sites of interest to classical historians: Epidavros (the ancient theatre and the Asklepeion), Mycaenae, Corinth. It was also possible to visit sites such as Olympia as well as the delightful Nauplio. The nearby village of Achaia (or Palaia) Epidavros is very attractive and has bakers, butchers and fishmongers, in addition to many restaurants. The apartment is wonderfully spacious, with a very large bedroom with room to spread out - and you can also enjoy the view through the French doors. The living/dining/kitchen area is equally spacious, with room to relax and indulge oneself. The high stud adds to the feeling of spaciousness. There is a large dining table and the kitchen has lots of crockery, utensils, etc. The fridge was very adequate, with no requirement for a freezer, as part of the joy was to buy fresh food every day. The bathroom was okay with a good size shower enclosure. The terrace was spectacular with its garden and the views out to the sea and along the coast. It was peaceful and quiet, and we were very sorry when it was time to leave. The host, Gil, was helpful and keen to ensure that all went well, and went above and beyond the call of duty, in helping with any question we had. We will forever remember his contribution to our European travels. It is the people, as much as the places, that one remembers, long after returning home.

Blessed be Villa Rosa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Rosa is a subject of poems written in St. Petersburg, Russia. It is so picturesque and enjoyable.

I expected a beautiful view, but it turned out to be absolutely breath-taking. I knew that we would have a great holiday, but we found ourselves in nirvana.

Many thanks to the owner!

The apartment is convenient and can be used by a family of 4. We recommend to visit the famous Theater (at 8 in the morning we were alone there!), Palamedi fortress at Nafplio, sights at Argos, Tyrinth and Mikenae.

The description is accurate. The personnel of the swimming pool at the hotel Aristotelis asked seven euro per person, which can be tough. The beach in June was quiet, especially early in the morning. The village center is in 3 km. Don't forget to get a map of Epidavros and find the sunk city. It is very close to the water surface, so no special experience in diving is needed. We were aware about our exposure to the sun, but with the sunk city we forgot about everything. Be careful about the sun in the middle of the day.

Take care and be happy at this paradise!

We had a lovely honeymoon at the Villa Rosa in April 2009.

The apartment is brilliant, with everything you would expect in a normal home. Little things like the washing machine and cooking-utilities made things so much easier. It's all very spacious, clean and comfortable, and has a good amount of privacy. The terrace is great for some sun and peace, and Epidavros is a lovely little fishing village just down the road, with some great cafes and restaurants, and enough grocery shops to keep you going. There's also a nice beach at the bottom of the hill which was nice and quiet and relaxed whilst we were there.

A car/moped/bicycle is probably a good thing as the trip through the orange groves into/back from the village, whilst lovely, can take a while. Luckily for us, Gil & Judy were excellent hosts and went totally out of their way to accommodate us and make sure we had the best holiday we possibly could, but at the same time weren't at all intrusive.

Two must-sees whilst there are the Ancient Theatre nearby and Nafplio (esp. the views from Palamidi Fortress), a brilliant little town not too far away.

All-in-all it was a great holiday, nice and warm, peaceful, with very comfortable, affordable accommodation and the freedom to do as much or as little as you like.

Thanks Gil & Judy

Highly recommended property

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommended this 3bed villa because:

- wheelchair friendly (my daughter loved it)

- the description of the villa was totally accurate

- it is a high standard property and it was very clean and well presented

- the owner's representative was very helpful and lives next door

- the nearest beach is not sand, so you need to go a little bit further to

find a sand beach

- the view from the property is wonderful

Gialasi, about ten minute walk down the hill.
Car: recommended

Only 1 1/2 hours from Athens airport,The apt situated within olive and citrus groves on a hillside in Gialasi, just south of the picturesque fishing village of Ancient Epidavros, which is about 60 kilometres from the Corinth Canal. The panoramic views are stunning; looking across the sea to the islands of Egina and Agistri and the rugged peninsular of Methena. 15 min drive over the hill behind is the world famous ancient theatre of Epidavros where operas and Greek plays are performed each year during the Epidavros festival. Mycenae, Agamemnon's city, is an hour away. Forty minutes away is Corinth with train service to Athens. Nafplio, the first capital of modern Greece, and arguably the most beautiful in all of Greece with its Venetian, Turkish and neo-classical architecture is an easy drive. The village itself surrounds the head of a natural harbour and has its own ancient theatre where concerts are held in the summer. Gialasi beach is a 2 minute drive away, or an eight minute walk.

Other Activities: Opera, concerts, boat trips to islands, visits to ancient sites, walking, bird watching, hydrofoil to Pireus
