THE ARGOLID PENINSULA
A collection of high quality properties on the coast of the Argolid Peninsula east and west of Porto Cheli, mostly set amongst trees and with glorious views across to Spetsai and/or Hydra.

This villa stands on a hill behind the little town of Porto Cheli and enjoys a magnificent panorama over the town, harbour and straits to the undulating green island of Spetsai. The accommodation is exceptionally well-apppointed with plenty of en suite bathrooms and very spacious balconies and terrace.
S/C < 10 persons. Click on the villa name above for more details, pictures and availability.
Villa Kostoula is built in the shade of pine trees a few minutes’ drive east of Kosta, whence the local ferry (or fast taxi-boats) take you to Spetsai in a few minutes. Indeed, you look across to Spetsai island from the balcony and pool area of Villa Kostoula. The villa also has the advantage of being next door to the private house of Clare and her family who look after the whole clutch of villas here – so no danger of feeling lost! There are plenty of sandy bays along the coast here; and Porto Cheli and the archaeological sites of the Argolid are within easy driving distance.
S/C < 8 persons (whole house) or S/C < 4 persons (using the ground or first floor only, both of which are self-contained with separate access; the two halves, however, are never let at the same time - this is purely an opportunity for smaller groups outside the high season).

A stone-built villa with character, a traditional feel and superb views rather than being just another luxury des res from a developer’s drawing board. From its position atop a headland with the sea just below and a quiet sandy cove on each side, you can feel king of the castle: children will love it and find rather fewer valuables to damage than usual. It recalls the real Greece of 25 years ago. The villa is about 5km from Porto Cheli along the less wooded, slightly flatter terrain which has so far seen comparatively little development. And it's affordable.

Built for comfort and for views, this is the perfect villa for hedonists. If you are happy to enjoy the sun, the sea and the pool you need hardly move; but if you want some culture the famous archaeological sites of the Argolid are within an hour and a half’s drive; and the islands of Hydra (for a fascinating day trip to one of Greece’s most famous beauty spots) and Spetsai (for some local night-life round its old harbour) are both easy to reach

This is a lovely villa with wonderful views towards Spetsai from its landscaped grounds. Featuring not just a large pool but a hot tub near the barbecue area. There is space everywhere and – rare for Greece – even lawns. The accommodation is very comfortable and well-appointed. Both Kosta (ferry across to Spetsai) and Porto Cheli are a short drive away and the various ancient sites of the Argolid easily reachable.
