The Dutch Suite of Villa Epikouros is the former farmhouse, built in the hills west of Porto Heli in 1926. Thick walls, 50 centimeters thick, characterize this architectural style. In the spring of 2020, this farm has been completely renovated and the four private terraces are equipped with new porches.
The suite has a total surface of 60 m2 and contains a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower and sink, an air-conditioned living / dining room, an air-conditioned bedroom and a lounge. The suite has its own entrance and is only rented exclusively: you are the only tenant! The terraces offer beautiful views over the bay of Porto Heli, the Argolic Gulf and Lake Ververonda. In the distance you can see the (snowy) peaks of the mountains of the Peloponnese.
The suite is part of Villa Epikouros and has a garden of 2600 square meters.

The Dutch Suite of Villa Epikouros is located two kilometers from the picturesque harbor town of Porto Heli, about 5 minutes away by car or taxi. This cosmopolitan resort is located about 40 kilometers east of the city of Nafplion and off the coast is the island of Spetses. A luxury destination in mainland Greece with many villas and resorts. In the area there are small bays with beautiful (sandy) beaches. It is not without reason that King Willem Alexander and Queen Maxima have their luxury holiday villa here, just like the Spanish and Greek royal family.
At the marina, where the ferry to the islands of Spetses, Hydra and Poros also departs, you will find most taverns, restaurants and terraces. The sheltered bay of Porto Heli is full of bobbing sailboats and yachts in the summer. Greek ship owners have their summer residences here, and celebrities like Sean Connery and Vladimir Putin have their own properties here. The Ververonda lake is on the west side with sandy beaches and various water sports options. Near Porto Heli there are beautiful beaches with or without facilities. Ververonda is popular with its beach bars, but also the "golden" beaches of Hinitsa and the quiet Triantafyllou Beach.
The fishing village of Kilada, known for its shrimp, is a 20-minute drive away. A tip is to take the ferry to the atmospheric island of Spetses for a day. Frequent ferries depart from the harbor of the coastal town of Kosta to the Argo-Saronic islet. Other attractions include the amphitheater of Epidaurus, the island of Hydra and the pleasant town of Nafplion. The picturesque coastal town of Ermioni with a beautiful sandy beach is also worth a visit.
Porto Heli can be reached in various ways. First you fly via a (line or charter) flight to Athens Airport. From there are the following options:
