Xylokastro is a small, beautiful, picturesque town, situated in the North of Peloponnesus, at the Korinthian Golf. It's a place, which combines the mountain and the sea, the cosmopolitan and the simplicity. It offers fantastic beaches for swimming and sea - sports.One of the most unique pine tree forests in Greece, the famous «Pefkias» is located in Xylokastro.
Xylokastro also has one more advantage: it is closely situated to famous archaeological sites (e.g Ancient Korinth Olympia, Mycenae, Delphi, etc.) and is close to city's such as Athens, Patras, Korinth, Nafplion.
Last but not least the Athens airport and the port of Patras are close by. Public transportation is near by (40meters). Also the night clubs, bars and restaurants are nearby (300m aprox).
If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.

We spent in the apartment of Constantinos a month. The apartment very light, is equipped with everything, than it is necessary, a beach is nearly.
Constantinos is an excellent owner. We hope next year to return again.
We spent almost a month in Constantinos' apartment and it's worth mentioning that it indeed looks the same as shown on the photos!
Constantinos is a very hospitable and friendly person. He did all possible and even more to make our stay interesting, entertaining, unforgettable and careless.
He organized transfer from and to Kiato when we arrived and were leaving, which was very nice of him and his family.
Apart from that he was offering different trips around Peloponnese, although we, unfortunately, didn't have a chance to try.
The apartment is very cousy and comfortable, very well decorated. It is super-close to the sea. On the sea side there are a lot of different restaurants and several night clubs, if you want some night-life.
Sometimes it gets too noisy at night because of never-ending bikes passing by in front of the apartment, but that's not a big deal as the flat is air-conditioned and you can close the windiw in the living room. If you are a couple and sleep in the bedroom you should not be concerned on that matter as the room is facing the inner side of the house, which is always very quiet.
The city's location is very comfortable for tourism as you can get pretty much everywhere! Ancient Corinth is some 30km away, Athens - 130km, all can be reached by bus straight from Xylokastro. Bus station is 2 min walk from the apartment. You can as well discover Peloponnese, using buses and trains, or even rent a car in Kiato and travel anywhere you like!
So the place is awesome, the host is awesome, thank you so much Constantinos for this time!
We spent 3 months with Constantinos starting with him driving us from Athens to Xylokastro with a stop along the way to see the canal in Corinth. The apartment is exactly as shown and described and we were very comfortable and happy there. The city itself is very authentic small town Greece and the people are very friendly and helpful. Great butcher shop, bakery, produce/fruit stand, and restaurants within a stones throw of the apartment. Very relaxing place to stroll the beach front, sunbath, swim, or relax in on the beach cafes. We interacted on the balcony with renters of the other two units and found them to also happy with their units. The apartment that we were in is probably the best there is in the area that is for rent on airbnb. You need to be very careful with some of the others. We viewed a villa in nearby Melissi that is for rent on airbnb for $2,000 per month and found it to be unsuitable even for a one night stay. Holes in the ceiling and walls, peeling paint, and just plain dirty. Airbnb does not check at least some of their rentals and will not give you back the prepaid rent if you decide not to stay there. Constantinos rented a place in one of the islands from Airbnb and found it to be uninhabitable and did not stay even one night. Airbnb refused to return his money saying it was between him and the host. We are currently in Sitges Spain and using another website for this rental. If we ever use Airbnb again, it will only be to rent places with multiple good reviews. Again, great rental, great town, we will definitely be back again next year. Thank you for everything Constantinos and especially thank you to your wonderful mother.
