This 160 sq m south facing farm-like holiday home designed by the architect-owner, sits harmoniously on an organically cultivated 30,000 sq m private land full with 300-400 year old olive trees. The House consists of two independent self-contained sleeping units on either side of the main living/kitchen area. Unit A, with a veranda of its own, has two adjacent en suite bedrooms sharing one bathroom with shower (no bathtub) Sleeps 4. Unit B has two bedrooms in different levels joined with a staircase, sharing one bathroom with shower (no bathtub).Sleeps 4. All three areas with exposed timber roofs layered with byzantine tiles look onto a large veranda with a great view towards the olive grove and the sea. The area is quite, the landscape is beautiful and the ground covered with Mediterranean flora is ideal for kids and pets. The House, although close to the town of Porto Heli and to the beach, it is very secluded and ideal for relaxation...So close and yet so far away

Nikos purchased this house in 1990
Many thanks for the great hospitality which we felt in your Great House!
We liked the spot, the view, the weather and we enjoyed the starry nights with the Absolute Silence.
We had a wonderful week in your wonderful house
Nikos has designed and built a delightful house for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and the typical tourist hubs.
The house has been tastefully furnished with interesting artifacts everywhere you turn and was extremely clean. A true highlight was the evenings spent on the balcony listening to the sound of silence and looking out a sky full of stars.
Just a 2 min drive away (or a 15 min walk) from the nearest beach makes it an ideal location.
Nikos provided us with numerous recommendations of things to do and see in and around Porto Heli - including a delightful Taverna worth visiting in the nearby town of Koilada.
As there is no internet access (which we were thrilled about), for those in need of the occasional glance, one of the tavernas at a nearby beach had free wifi.
We would most certainly love the opportunity to go back and highly recommend this property.

We had a lovely time at your beautiful house. Thank you!!!
It was perfect for our family and my sister's family.
We were 8 all together, 4 adults and 4 children and we had the best time!
The house is fully equipped with everything you might need and situated in a beautiful olive grove as well as a ten minute walk from a secluded beach.
We took nice day trips in the area and Nikos and Idrisa were very helpful when needed. All the Taverns we great as well.
We truly hope to come back soon one of these days!
All the best,
Talia & Ariel
In a hidden olive grove, we found a gorgeous architectural gem. Just outside Porto Heli, tourism seemed to be fare away. The house is very well equipped and tastefully decorated. The recommendations from the host to restaurants, shopping and excursions were very good. The two bedroom houses, the kitchen house, several terraces and the very large ecological garden offer a wide variety of ways to relax and play. From the large terrace, we enjoyed the sunset over the island of Spetses with olives from the garden.
A great house for two families with children.
We enjoyed it very much and hope to to be back soon.
Très bon séjour dans une belle maison idéale pour 2 familles avec enfants.
Maison belle et fonctionnelle joliment meublée. La terrasse qui relie les trois bâtiments est un vrai lieu de vie très agréable et fonctionnelle.
Un lieu idéal pour des vacances découverte et plages
Excellente semaine dans cette maison idéale pour 2 familles avec enfants.
Le cadre est magnifique, la maison fonctionnelle et belle. La terrasse qui relie les 3 bâtiment est le vrai lieu de vie agréable de ces lieux. La maison a un charme et les quelques cds, jeux de société,... donnent l'impression de retrouver une maison de famille. Le propriétaire est prévenant.
We spend very nice holidays in this house. The house is very beautiful and ideal for holidays in summer. Very beautiful and quiet beach is at a walking distance...through olive tree.
The house is not so far from many archeological sites in Argolide.
So we can easily mixt during our stay different kind of activities and also have a very quiet stay!
Nikos, the owner, is very sympathic person. He will give you a lot of explanations and good ideas to enjoy your stay.
We recommand this house if you want to spend ideal holidays in Grece!
Porto Heli is a beautiful old fishing village with a natural harbour in the Peloponnese, Argolida, the southern region of mainland Greece. Porto Heli is about 190km from Athens by road or 55 Nautical miles from the Port of Pireaus. It can be reached by car, bus and high speed ferry from Piraeus Port (2,5 hours). The traditional island of Spetses with its night life is opposite and is easily accessible by boat (10 minutes) and taxi speed boats.
In the summer, day boat cruises are organised to the island of Hydra and the byzantine Rock of Monemvasia. The one hour away open Theater of Epidaurus, known for its unique acoustics, hosts the yearly Greek Festival of greek ancient tragedy and comedy. The water ski school in the nearby Ververonda 'Lake' is famous for its facilities and attracts ski enthousiasts including national w/s teams.
There are many tavernas in Porto Heli, Ermioni and Koilada spesializing in sea food and fresh fish. While in the area it is worthwhile to visit the noble old town of Nauplion and the archaeological site of Mycenae, the credle of civilization.
