It’s been a week since The Significant Other and I arrived in Greece for our summer vacation. Time to share a couple photographs from our holiday happy place between Xiropigado and Astros on the Peloponnese.
We are totally in love with our holiday happy place. Give credit to The Significant Other who discovered this gem for us (she always does, year for year, wherever we go – this is totally amazing). The little white villas built on top of each other are all self serviced units, but that’s what we are always looking for. We love to dine out in different places, and trust me, Greece has a lot to offer food wise (will be a separate post on our culinary holidays). There are a few villages nearby that provide all we need, and the towns of Argos and Nafplion are just twenty to thirty minutes drive away. Our hosts Kostas, Kikì, their daughter Sylvia and their staff are super friendly and help make the stay of their guests a truly memorable one.
What is totally awesome is the fabulous private beach shared by the few houses in this little sandy bay (have I mentioned we did already see some dolphins a bit offshore?). This, in high season, is a luxury. Although I have to say that Covid has its impact on tourism in Greece, there are very very few foreign tourists here these days. It is insane to have these world famous antic sites in the area almost to oneself. Finding a place in the restaurants is also no problem at all, everything walk in, no reservations needed. So different from the pre-Covid years.
The photographs were taken with my iPhone, the OM-D E-M1X, the Olympus Tough TG-4 (the underwater pic) and my DJI Mini 2 drone (aerials).
Stay tuned for more post from our vacation, and explore beautiful Peloponnese with us.
Have a great Saturday
