A unique country-house, surrounded by orange groves, with great views over the ancient ruins of Tiryns, a mycenean citadel, and Palamidi, the imposing castle of Nafplion.

The space

Welcome to our home away from home! This is our country house, built initially by my father-in-law for his family, and renovated by us. He was a farmer by profession, so the house is located in the middle of an orange grove with uniterrupted views to the town of Napflion and its imposing castle, Palamidi, while the ruins of ancient Tiryns are literally a stone-throw away.

The house is spacious and can easily accommodate two families with kids: - It has two bedrooms with double beds and a kids' bedroom with a bunkbed and two fold-out beds. The living room sofa can also be turned into a double bed. There is one spacious bathroom with a bath-tub and a shower and a smaller WC with a shower hose. The washing machine, which you are welcome to use, is in the main bathroom.

- It has a large dining table that can accommodate twelve guests plus a kitchen table with six extra chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped and we also keep some staples for your convenience (olive oil, vinegar, herbs, pasta, ceral, coffee, tea, sugar). There is a Nespresso machine for your coffee, kettle, microwave oven, toaster and juicer. The kitchen has a dishwasher so you don't have to argue about who's going to wash up.

- There are two living rooms, which I call the 'upper' and the 'lower'. The upper living room has a fireplace and is slightly elevated, so that it has a great vista. The lower living room is for kids, where they can play with their friends.

-The house has a solar boiler, so hot water is available when it's sunny but there is also an electrical boiler for cloudy days (which are admittedly rare). There is free wi-fi and you can make calls within Greece free of charge. It is fully air-conditioned and heated.

- The house has two spacious verandas, one in the front and one in the back.

- We provide maps, guide books and leaflets for Nafplion and the Peloponnese.

_Bed linen and towels are provided but no beach towels.

Guest access

Guests have full access to the whole house and the orange grove that belongs to it. You are more than welcome to help yourself to the fresh oranges when in season. Kids and pets are free to roam among the trees.
Please note that the house is accessed by a flight of stairs, which might be a problem for some people.

Interaction with guests

As we permanently live in Athens, we are sorry that we are not able to welcome you in person. However, our next-door neighbour, Maria, is always there, happy to greet you, hand you the keys and help you with any practicalities. We have a network of close friends in the area, who are willing to help you with an emergency, while I am available 24/7 via phone or e-mail, ready to assist you with anything you might need: sightseeing, beaches, restaurants, day-trips-you name it!

We had a lovely stay in Ioanna's family home and thanks to her wonderful tips and recommendations got to discover beautiful Nafplio and the surrounding area with our family and friends. The house has everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable and relaxing stay in this beautiful part of the Peloponnese.

This is the house you need if you visit Nafplio. Situated within a 5 minutes drive of the gorgeous Nafplio walking strip, the house is enormous and very well built. We felt like home the instant we stepped foot inside. We didn't meet Ioana, but she was very responsive via SMS and everything was just perfect. Thank you!

Ionna gives very good indications to find the house and practical info to have an easy and relaxing stay. The place was spoteless when we entered. The house is ideally located to visit antic sites in the area. I would definitely recommand it for family with kids and this is only a 10 minutes drive from Nauplia historic center.

We stayed at Ionna's lovely house with 4 kids and spent a fantastic week there. The house is very clean, lots of space, great view on the surrounding orange trees! very nice places to visit like ancient theatre Epidaurus, visits to Hydra/Spetzes by boat from Naplion, great beaches along the coast and of course Naplfion itself is wonderful with its lovely old centre, stunning view from the castle, and lots of great restaurants and shops. we also did a 2 day-trip by car to visit the Mistras phantom-village, the amazing Novembassia village in the sea, and the best beach of the Mediterranean at Elafonissos. I really recommend the house for a stay with the family. It has all equipment to make the stay with kids very comfortable (nice rooms, 2 showers, good airco in all rooms, Wifi, beach stuff (parasol), large living room and some games). Ionnna was very welcoming, always ready to give useful tips, and a very friendly host - thanks for everything ! Nicolas

We (2 adults and 2 children) stayed 3 nights in her home next to Nafplion and the location was just perfect. This is a spacious, quiet and very clean house in the middle of an orange orchard and wonderful views. Ioanna communicates quickly and provides very useful information on anything that can be done in the area and we are so glad to have followed her restaurant recommendation. The taverna (family style, great food and very reasonable prices) in Pyrgiotika was amazing! She also regularly checked how we were doing throughout our stay. I have only one regret... Not to have been able to stay longer to do everything that she proposed! The list is long! We got a little bit lost to find it initially, but it was self-inflicted (coming from a different direction) because you just need to follow her very detailed instructions. I would definitely come back without any hesitation if I am in the area.
