The Village, where to go, What to do:
Xiropigado is a fishing village in the Argolic gulf and is part of Arcadia Region. It is the first village of Arcadia coming from Argolida region. Both regions are in the Peloponnese Peninsula.
In recent years, it has become a valuable resort area. It is a beautiful location with many beaches where visitors can escape from the stress and noise of the city life.
Near the village there are cliffs with small caves and small more private beaches, ideal for snorkeling, fishing, scuba diving, water sports and hiking.
Visitors can also relax by the sea, walk on the paved way along the beach or just hang out at the small port. Additionally, there are a lot of taverns along the seaside of the village, where the visitors can taste local products and fresh fish.

It was very nice to spend the vacation at the apartments. Me and my family had a nice apartment with a sea view and enjoyed the relaxed holidays in peloponnese. We had a car rented from the airport of el. Venizelos in Athens and drove easily till the apartments following the information we had received when booking the apartment. The personell welcomed us warmly and since then we had one fabulous week in the beautifull teritorry. All kinds of beaches were available even the scuba option for my husband was available. The local food was excelent and traditiponal. Prices were more that fair. The place is very clean and the architecture unique. i even coocked in my apartment nice meals for my family.
E' stata un'esperienza fantastica. I proprietari sono stati squisiti e molto accoglienti. Il residence è nuovo, tenuto molto bene e il paesino offre tranquillità e serenità. Lo consiglio a chi vuole sole, mare e tanto riposo.
My wife and I needed a time-out from stressful months and we got it at Xiropigadu. With a wonderful view over the gulf of Nafplion - even from the bed - we felt at home from the first moment on. Everything was clean and seemed new (or at least recently renovated). As a welcome present a delicious cake freshly baked by the owner-lady, was waiting for us together with a large bowl of delicious oranges. All this made us really feel welcome. At this early time of the year it seemed to us that we were the only tourists, yet at least one of the estimated 5-6 restaurants was open and served wonderful meals (with at least one fresh fish dish per day). We could buy the most necessary things, for example for breakfast at the nearby shop. We had the little beach for ourselves, yet the weather and water temperatures didn't allow for much swimming yet. So we spent most of the time sitting either on the balcony or in the inside, looking out onto the sea, reading, doing some paper work, etc. Nafplion, Greek's first capital is within half an hour by car, a charming little town at the foot of an impressive fortress. Other sites, like Mykene or Epidauros are quite close. I can imagine summer must also be beautiful there. Recommendation for everyone.
Balaska Apartments are situated in Xiropigado, a very attractive village near Noplie. the nature, the beaches and the neighborhood are magnificent and the charming owners. Housing, perfectly maintained and decorated tastefully, misses nothing and are in the heart of the village and a few meters away from the main beach. An address which we thus recommend to all !
The location is a place very close to my heart, have spent many summers there with family and friends. It is the ideal place to spend the summer vacation or even a long weekend during winter or spring. It is near the sea, the beach and lovely local restaurants, all very reasonably priced and within walking distance! Family friendly, couples friendly but also 'young' friendly, it only takes a 15 minute drive to get to life bustling, cosmopolitan Nafplio with more restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs!
The apartments are clean, quiet, with modern amenities, lovely views and literally 2-minute walk from the beach. The owners are very hospiatble but at the same time discreet, and it's a place that I would definitely go back to and recommend to people.
Xiropigadon is a quiet, scenic fishing village at the foot of a hill covered in olive trees. The numerous beaches with sand and with pebbles, the scenic harbour, and the unique sunsets offer an escape to an oasis of serenity and relaxation. Each day you can choose from a revitalizing swim in the sea or from excursions to the surrounding hills.
In the village you can have your coffee by the sea and try the fresh fish in the tavernas or you can buy your own goods vegetables and fruits from the supermarket or the mini market and cook your own delicious meal. The village has a beach bar cafeterias and internet cafe. You can have a sweet taste in the cookie shop or enjoy delicious ice cream by the sea. 20 minutes north from Xiropigado locates the first capital of Greece, the historical Nafplio and the ancient theatre of Epidauros where each summer a famous art festival takes place.
