Our house is located in Vrousti, a hamlet nestled in the mountains of Argolida, one of the most important centers of Ancient Greece. The significant archaeological sites of Nemea and Mycenae, the ancient theatres of Argos and Epidaurus are all within easy reach. An extensive network of mountain footpaths starts from the village and hikers will enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding area while cyclists will delight in exploring the numerous mountain roads and paths. The Venetian town of Nafplion, located at the apex of the Argolic gulf, offers a counterpoint to the peaceful rhythms of Vrousti with its delightful shops, wide variety of restaurants and buzzing nightlife. The area boasts a wide variety of excellent beaches with facilities for most water-sports and points of departure for the renowned Argo-Saronic islands of Hydra, Spetses and Poros. Argos, the nearest main town, apart from its historical interest, covers all shopping needs and includes an extensive farmer’s market twice a week.

 

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Loutraki:
We fell in love with the little village of Vrousti while we were touring the Highlands of Argolida by car. What attracted us was the unspoilt aspect of it. Here was a hamlet of old stone houses mostly, with no modern interventions and no tourism. Not even a village shop or post office. The absolute quiet of the place charmed us. You feel that you are very close to nature and especially to the sounds of nature: the sounds of the bells from the goat herds, the bark of a sheepdog, the night sounds of owls hooting and foxes crying. The local people are simple folk, goat herders and cheese makers, and they lead peaceful, traditional lives. For us, it was the perfect place to escape from the noise and crowds of the city; a place to relax, to contemplate and to create.
