NAFPION Luxury Villa with panoramic views and fully-landscaped grounds
Villa with 3 bedrooms and a master-suite loft, 3 bathrooms, large garden, internet access, and 3 parking spaces in a gated community complex. Sleeps 7 in total.
This 3-level stone Villa, exquisitely decorated in whitewash cottage flair, is situated on fully-landscaped grounds of 500 m², the corner lot of a six villa gated complex. This romantic and elegantly furnished house has a very welcoming feel. Just 90 minutes away from Athens, it is the ideal solution for families and couples year-round with breathtaking views and swimming, snorkeling, wind-surfing, kite-surfing, water-skiing, hiking and sightseeing opportunities.
Entering the house on the 2nd floor is a comfortable living room with a wood-burning functional fireplace, a dining area with a table that can sit 6-8 people, a fully equipped open kitchen with electric stove top, oven, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, and coffee maker as well as a small washroom. Through the living room you can exit to the large covered balcony (20m2) with breathtaking views of the Argolis bay. The balcony has its own large sitting and dining area that can comfortably hold up to 8 people for dinning and relaxing while taking in the magnificent view. This balcony faces east and is ideal for watching the sunrise or the moonrise over the water. At this level, there is also a fully landscaped back yard with trees and flowers, a cozy and cool area ideal for breakfast during the summer months with great views of the water and surrounding mountains.
Through an internal staircase you access the ground level which has three bedrooms and one large bathroom with double sinks, toilet and shower. Outside there is an additional open shower to wash off when returning from swimming, and a washer and collapsible liner to clean and dry your cloths. The first bedroom sleeps up to 2 people, has air conditioning and overlooks the garden and water; the 2nd bedroom is ideal for a kid or one person and also has side views of the garden and water; the 3rd bedroom in the front of the house is a large room with sea and garden views that can comfortably sleep two people. All bedrooms are fully equipped with closets, bookcases and TVs and overlook the Argolis bay. A family of 4 could ideally sleep on this floor, every child having his/her own bedroom.
The upper level is the master suite, a chalet-like big loft (40m2) with a queen metal bed, large desk, fully equipped bathroom with shower as well as closets, air-conditioning, TV and DVR. A great bedroom for couples or parents with older kids who can sleep comfortably on their own at the lower floor.
The outdoor areas of the house consist of a fully landscaped garden with trees and blooming flowers. There is a large outdoor kiosk-dining area with a table that can accommodate 10 people for dinner made on the brick barbeque a few steps away. There is plenty of room on the garden for children to play and a basketball that can offer hours of fun for everyone –that is if you can stop looking at the overpowering view...
The villa also has central heating, a gardener to take care of the landscape and offers its own filtered water tanks to make sure there is always clean and plenty water. Another privilege is the private parking that has space for up to three cars.
There are many beautiful sandy and pebble beaches very close to the villa (500m) for you to explore and plenty of Greek sun to enjoy.
The house, located between the villages of Kiveri and Xiropigado, is only 15 min. by car from the historical city of Nafplion, modern Greece's first capital and one of the most picturesque Greek towns. The village of Kiveri is 5 min. away and offers mini-markets and grocery stores, tavernas, a butcher, a bakery and a pharmacy so you can have all the supplies you need during your stay.

We stayed here over Christmas (4 adults) and had a lovely time. The house is well furnished with comfortable beds, a well-stocked kitchen and beautiful outdoor areas. The views are fantastic and it was quite quiet and peaceful. Xenia is very friendly and did a great job welcoming us to her home.
Shopping is available nearby and we bought most of our food at the Myloi supermarket. There is also a great bakery next door, as well as a butcher's shop.
The road to the house is quite small and winding, as it looks to be a relatively new development surrounded by olive trees. This obviously has the benefit of being very quiet but it's also not possible to walk to any shops or to the beach. The location is great for all the main sites near Nafplio--Mycenae, Tiryns, Nemea, Epidaurus and we also took a nice coastal drive south to Paralio Astros.
Wifi worked perfectly and we had no issues with cell phone reception.
Overall, we had a great time!
The house is very well furnished, beautiful and the view above the see is splendid.
But the best remains how Xenia and her husband welcome you in their home : they had prepared everything we could expect when arriving after a long trip, they gave us a lot of practical advice (nearest beach, shopping....).
We appreciated that the house was quite closed from the main interesting sites of Peloponnese : Evpidaurus, Mykenes, Nafplio....
