About the property

2 independent appartments (10beds in total), very quiet, close to the seaside

The house has been a traditional cottage built in the 40s as accomodation to local sheppards. It was bought from our family in 1982 and was completely renovated and enlarged in the late 90s. It is ideally located and follows all rules of traditional architecture of pelloponesian houses.

It is therefore realy comfortable to stay even in the hot days in the summer. Winter is also very calm due to the close distance to the sea. Central heating is also installed, so that the house can be used throughout the year.

The house has two independent apartments. The ground floor provides accomodation facilities for 6 people and has one living room, one kitchen, two double bedrooms, one bathroom and one WC. Two couches are placed also in the livingroom, which can be used as beds for children or even adults if necessary.

The upper floor provides facilities for accomodation 4 people and has: one living room, one kitchen, one double bedroom and one bathroom. Two couches are placed again in the livingroom, which can be used as beds for children or adults.

Clean sheets and towels are always available. A washing machine is also installed in the WC of the apartment in the basement. A cleaning lady can be also reserved, if requested, in the middle of an accomodation period after appointment

The house far away from the local road, and is therefore very quiet. I clear sky without any city lights can be usually observed at night. It is very peaceful, tastefully decorated and is ideal for families requesting calm and relaxing holidays combining them with some city visits and cultural activities.

Why Michalis Agraniotis chose Xiropigado

It is a house owned by our family for more than 30 years now. We use to spend weekends or several days there during different periods of the year and have a nice time together with friends and relatives there. We would like that all our guests get this warm and comforable feeling that we have, when staying in our house.

What makes this cottage unique

Very calm and quiet, tastefully decorated, close to several archeological sites and landmarks/cities worth of visiting (city Navplion, archeological cite of Mycenae, ancient theater of Epidaurus, byzantine church of Lukus), ideal for families requesting calm and relaxing holidays and being interested to learn some of the cultural heritage and traditional life in Peloponnese.

Maison avec beaucoup de charme, proche de la montagne et avec une vue sur la mer.

  • 4 of 5

La plage quasi sauvage est accessible à pied.

Dans les environs, les villes de Nauplie et Astros sont accessibles pour passer une agréable soirée.

Attention, pas de climatisation, donc au mois d'août c'est chaud (mais il y a des ventilateurs efficaces).

Ideal location, incredibly peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our nine days in these two cottages (two couples) were perfect. It is very well situated to visit the major archaeological sites (Mycenae, Thyrins, Argolid, Epidavrus, and of course Nafplio. We also made more ambitious full-day trips to Olympia and took the ferry from Metoxi to Ydra. In between we relaxed on the lovely decks, eating many meals there, and enjoyed the private beach.

wonderful house at the seaside, quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, good facilities, quite clean, mosquito net on the windows, beds comfortable, owner very friendly, easy to contact by mobile phone or by e-mail, uncomplicated. Beautiful beach (water very warm and clear, pleasure to swim every day) in front oft the house, 5-10 minutes to walk (not for invalid people). End of October very quiet area, most shops in Paralios Astros closed but still enough to buy the things you need and still some restaurants open. The very nice city nafplio with many cafés and restaurants easy to reach by car (30 minutes). Thank you very much to Michalis!

Nice and remote house

  • 5 of 5

We spent 1 week in this cottage (we were 6 adults). the house is highly suitable (kitchen, beds, living-rooms) actually all facilities are doubles (in both floors), and this was very convenient for both couples in our family. the house is located on the Argolic coast between Xiropigado and Parallio-Astros. All villages are cute, all beaches are beautiful and we just wondered between places. Hiking in the Parnon mountain was also very close. All grocery needs could be bought in the close-by villages (fresh veg. fruits, fish and bread) either in road-side shops or in the large supermarkets of the Astros crossing. we did not encounter any problems with water supply, electricity, internet etc. kitchens are well-equipped, and a lot of left-over food was found in the house. linens and towels are supplied and the place is very clean. The only issue was the stony road up the hill to the house but we (and our vehicle) got used to it. all in all this is surely the best way for a real quiet vacation. Nearby taverns (in Xiro and Astros) supplied the youngsters' needs for social activity. The younger couple also used the public-bus to Athens which also very easy to use. we highly recommend.

superbe maison bien placée

  • 5 of 5

La maison de Michalis est très agréable. Superbe vue sur la montagne et la mer. Grande terrasse à l'ombre le matin et le soir pour manger au son des cygales. Il fait un peu chaud dans la maison mais la multitude des ventilateurs rend la température tout à fait acceptable. Maison très bien placée pour les plages et les visites : Oympie, Nauplie, Mycène, Mystra,.villages d'Arcadie... On recommande vivement !
