About Agathi Harvati
The fishing village of Nerantza is the place I spend my holidays and most of my free time since I was born. It is a great escape from the city of Athens only one hour’s drive away. Only 5 km away you can visit the city of Kiato with its picturesque port where you can find fishing boats and buy fresh fish right on the spot, just as they are pulled from the nets! The village of Nerantza is full of fields with lemon trees, orange trees, grape fruits and olive trees, so you can easily find plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit. If you want to avoid driving for some days Nerantza has mini markets, a pharmacy, places to eat and have a drink and of course amazing beaches for swimming and sunbathing. I love Nerantza and would like to invite you to get to know this place too. Visit the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rwnSCEVOFs

What makes this House unique
The village lies directly on the north coast of the Peloponnese, 10 km west of Corinth, not far from Athens. To date, the village remains largely undiscovered by foreign tourism. The villa is located near the centre of the village, close to a mini market and taverns offering Greek speciality dishes and good wine. The surrounding area : The region is very close to Athens, therefore during the weekends a great number of city-residents visit the area. It is suitable for an excursion any time of year, but it can also be combined with other remarkable excursions in the Peloponnesus. You can find significant archaeological sites and wonderful beaches, casino and all these just a short way from Athens. Arrival and Distances: Distance to Athens airport 120 km Distance to railway station of Zevgolatio (right after Korinthos) – 7 km Distance to Motorway – 10 km Distance to Super Market – 50 metres. Various beach toys and a canoe are provided free of charge, and the use of a motorboat can be arranged. Apart from quiet shores the lake of Vouliagmeni can also be reached by motorboat (by car too) since it has an opening from the Corinthian gulf! As they are not part of the rent, there is no legal right to them. If they are not provided, no reason for a rent decrease or similar claims occurs. Anyhow, those items have to be used carefully and have to be left clean on their dedicated places on the day of your departure. Just five metres separate you from the sea. Taverns, beach bars, a fun park for children (walking distance), watersports at nearby Corinth or Loutraki. The village is also inhabited during the winter months and all of the shops are open 7 days a week. A supermarket, a butcher’s shop, cafes and taverns are all within easy reach by foot. A famous ski resort is a one-hour drive away. From there you can easily reach the Greek carnival towns of Patras and Loutraki. The latter, a health and spa resort with spring waters and a casino, is 20 km away.

Beautiful place and gracious hosts
We had a terrific stay here. The house was clean and comfortable, in an incredible spot right on the Gulf of Corinth. We went during the shoulder season, so the local activity was pretty low, but that was fine by us. We rented a car and went exploring in the Peloponnese, which was lots of fun. We thought our hosts were wonderful and helpful with renting the car and getting settled in. We'd come back!
Lovely Villa on the Sea
Our family of five stayed very comfortably in this villa right on the gulf of Corinth. The house was clean and spacious. The perfect place to wind down and relax after a day of sightseeing to nearby places like: Athens, Epidavros, Mycenae, Corinth, Napflio, and more. The location is quiet and away from the hustle of tourists, allowing one to truly embrace the local way of life. A car and GPS is a must. Agathi and her family were nothing but the perfect hosts, beyond hospitable--always available, cooking a traditional Greek meal for us, bringing us oranges from their orchard almost daily and making you feel more like family than a guest. The spacious lawn and direct access to the beach was wonderful. I would highly recommend this rental not only for the house but for the personal service and attention we received during our stay. Thank you Agathi and Greece for a lovely holiday!
Thank you so much for your kind words. Hope you are all well. Kiss Ema and the boys for me and little Nikoleta and the rest of our family best regards and all the best to you all.

Unbeatable place by the sea at Nerantza
I think I will be the first reviewer for Agathi’s house as she is new in Homeaway.
It was unforgotable stay in Agathi’s house. The house is really a germ that you can relax and enjoy the sea as it is only 10m away from the cystal clear sea. It is also very comfortable with AC’s in each room, beds, kitchen,bath etc. It was luxuary to have sunbath in the private green yard.The sunset was great with beautiful Gulf of Corinth view from the veranda.
There are several very nice restaurants around that we can enjoy excellent Greek food with good prices. Agathi made reservation for us at these restaurant as we needed. There is a small market that we can find everything you need. Nerantza is s small village, but very lovely.People living in the village is very warm and very helpful. Besides it is still close to Athens, Corinthia, Epidauros, Nafplio to see interesting places.
Finally Agatha was an excellent hostess who helped us a lot for everything we needed during our stay. She was always reachable and very easy to communicate. Her recommendation made our stay easy and enjoyable . She and her family made our vacation wonderful . We will come back next year for sure.
Quelle vue !
Ce fut notre deuxième séjour dans la villa Angelos. Nous y étions allés en juillet 2016. Amoureux de la Grèce, nous avons voulu y retourner cet été. Après avoir regardé toutes les locations possibles et imaginables, nous n'en avons trouvé aucune avec le même rapport qualité / prix /vue. Le coucher et le lever du soleil sont incroyables à cet endroit. Et le tout en privé, au calme... La maison est grande et propre. Le ménage est fait et les draps changés au bout de la première semaine pour un séjour de 2 semaines. Le seul bémol est la douche qui ne dispose pas de rideau d'où inondation garantie à chaque passage. Mais la vue est si belle... Nerantza est nulle part. Pour les courses et l'animation il faut aller à Kiato qui se trouve à moins de 10 minutes en voiture. L'endroit est idéal comme point de départ pour visiter les principaux sites grecs ( Olympie, Delphes, Epidaure, Mycenes, Athènes...). Les propriétaires habitent en face et sont à la fois discrets et disponibles en cas de besoin. Ils nous ont apporté une bouteille de Limoncello maison pour fêter la victoire des Bleus !
Location à conseiller....
Casa en Neratza
Es un lugar maravilloso para el que quiera descansar, mí famila y yo estuvimos 2 semanas este verano Julio 2017, los propietarios muy amables, solo un par de problemas, las 2 camas individuales del primer dormitorio tendrian que cambiar de colchon ya que es imposible dormir en ellos, estan totalmente rotos, el sofa cama de la sala tiene una camita individual por debajo que tambien tendrían que cambiar de colchon tampoco se puede dormir allí, por lo demas todo bien; aunque el transporte es un problema pero encontramos un Taxista genial que habla Ingles y a parte nos dío muchas ideas y cobro la mitad de lo que el anterior taxista ( Sr. Costa en Nertaza) cobraba, sería muy recomendable tambien que los propietarios tuvieran el contacto de un transporte para recogerlos desde el aereopuerto en Athenas ya que como les digo el trasporte es un problema, les dejo el nombre y telefono del Taxista que de verdad es amable, simpatico y un excelente orientador de la zona,se llama Christoff, telefono +30 6978 031868
Muchas gracias a Agatti por su hospitalidad
