No point in arguing—you need to visit Argolis, stat

Why settle for just another typical beach holiday when Argolis vacation rentals offer so much more? With its ancient ruins, lively coastal towns, peaceful mountain villages, and yes, excellent beaches, Argolis deserves your full attention. Part of the Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece, this mountainous region has something for everyone. Superb weather draws in summer visitors and whether you want to top up your tan on the sandy beach at Karathona or on the pebbles at Mili, you'll likely find yourself in sizeable company. Away from the sea, there are museums, archaeological sites, fortresses, and festivals to keep you busy.

Things to do

You might want your holiday to end in ruins (literally)

Would-be historians will be in their element at Mycenae, one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. Walk through the Lions Gate at the entrance to the Mycenaean citadel and imagine what life must have been like for Bronze Age settlers. The nearby coastal town of Nafplio is considered by some to be one of the most romantic places in Greece. Stroll down the cobbled alleyways of its medieval Old Town, discover artifacts dating back to pre-historic times at the Archaeological Museum of Nafplio, and find time for some people-watching at one of the cafes that line Syntagma Square.


Fun-filled days that'll take you from sea to sundowners

If you're intent on stretching out on the beach, Argolis will supply the sand (or pebbles). However, once your tan has been well and truly topped up, this part of Greece has plenty to keep you entertained. Kite surfing, sea kayak tours, horse riding, and coastal treks are just some of the activities on offer. If you've a real appetite for adventure, consider heading west to the Lousios river for a fun-filled day rafting. Round things off with a cool sundowner in one of the bars or restaurants around the town of Nafplio.


Hit the beach for that golden Grecian glow

Thanks to its typical Mediterranean climate, the region enjoys hot, dry summers and mild winters. Pay a visit during the warmest months of July and August and you can expect average daytime temperatures to reach the high 80s. In winter, the mercury rarely drops below freezing, with daytime temperatures averaging 50 degrees in January and February. As always, if you can avoid the main school holiday season, you'll be rewarded with good deals on Argolis vacation rentals. Aim for May or early June and you'll be treated to warm sunny weather without the crowds.
