Nestled into the hillside overlooking the magnificent Mediterranean coastline you will find the charming ancient town of Nafplio.
Steeped in history and surrounded by beautiful nature and wonderful beaches Nafplio manages to link the past to the present day and is well worth a visit.
Set in the old town with access via cobbled streets and steps, close to the taverns, restaurants and shops you will find one of our chosen family run Hotels.
Your stay will be packed with places of interest to visit and wonderful local experiences to savour.
Our aim is that you can really enjoy the relaxed, family feel, well organised experience this WomenAway holiday can offer you.
On arrival you can relax in your Hotel, on the local beaches, or explore the old town and its narrow streets.
From Nafplio we will take you to places of interest and beauty, filling your days with the warmth of the Mediterranean sunshine and your mind with the exquisite culture experiences before returning you to your Hotel for enjoying the long the warm Mediterranean evenings.
will be spent enjoying the coast line of Nafplio & Tolo, relaxing on secluded beaches. We are hiring a small local boat which will take us from the harbour of Nafplio around the coast of Nafplio and Tolo. There are several small uninhabited islands nearby. It is possible to stop and swim and picnic before we return to Nafplio.
We head off to visit our 1st archealogical site of Epidauros. Here we have a guide to explain the history. Following that we will head into the charming village of Epidauros to visit the harbour and eat lunch. If the season is right we can also walk through the nearby olive groves and pines-forests.
We have planned a cooking experience with the ladies of the village, using local produce and cooking local dishes. Afterwards would be a good time to visit the shops and visit the old town of Nafplio or head back to relax on the local beaches. Organised for your fun and still a little bit more culture will be a traditional Greek evening where you can learn how to dance Greek style.
We are off to walk the clifftops for approximately an hour until we reach the beautiful beach of Karathona. Here we will have the opportunity to not only relax and swim but also to take out our sketch pads and together with our very own art tutor sketch the surroundings as we see it.
We will combine a trip to the ancient ruins of Mykene and a drive to visit the Loukou Monastry at Astros. Astros is a lovely town with beautiful beaches situated an hours drive from Nafplio.
After a morning free to roam the shops top up on your souvenirs and explore again the streets of Nafplio, we will meet together for our final trip where we will take you to the vineyards and sample some excellent local wines.
We need to be ready to leave the Hotel and make our return journey to Athens depending on flight times this leaves this day free for your own pleasure prior to departure.
