Nafplio, Greece - Nafplio, Home of Poppy
Nafplio, a seaside town with a population of 12,000, is located only 2 hours south of Athens on the Peloponnesian Peninsula. Many consider it Greece’s prettiest town. Nestled on a quiet bay, Nafplio makes a perfect base for exploring some of the most historic and scenic sections of Greece.
Nafplio itself has many restaurants and cafés, a wide variety of shops, several food stores including a convenient supermarket, an Internet café, and ATMs. It also has a prize-winning museum of Peloponnesian folk art and an archaeological museum. The Palamidi, a huge eighteenth-century fortress built by the Venetians, towers over the town and offers incredible views of the town, bay, and surroundings. Another fortress, a former prison, sits on an island in the bay just a few minutes by boat from Nafplio’s harbor.
Nearby daytrips from Nafplio include ancient ruins at Mycenae, Epidaurus, Tiryns, and Corinth. Longer excursions from Nafplio include Olympia, Mystras, Monemvasia, the island of Hydra, and even Athens.
Making Nafplio your home base creates a wonderful daily dilemma: to relax on a Nafplio beach or in a seaside café or to explore fascinating sites further afield.
Customer comments about Poppy, Nafplio, Greece - Nafplio
"Loved the apartment, location was awesome. The only issue was a strong smell like kerosene whenever you left the apartment or entered the building. The apartment did not have this smell and was very comfortable." Karen and William Hopkins
"Great location, very spacious apt. We'll furnished. Wonderful on site guide." John Jeffers
"Spacious apartment, excellent location, nice balcony overlooking square." Sara McCain
"We were very happy with the Poppy apartment. Amenities were great - everything we needed. Very roomy, and with the included A/C, cool and comfortable when it was hot and humid outside. We especially enjoyed the balcony access; for drinks with the table and chairs in the evenings, and access for photos including some of the Fortress from the bedroom balcony." Joyce Lambert
"The Poppy apt. was very large and well situated to everything one could want. The balconies (all four) were wonderful. The kitchen was extremely well equipped." Paula Dornbach
"The Poppy is a perfect apartment in terms of its comfort and amenities and its location. Observed the world from the balcony, especially important during Greek Orthodox Easter week." Sandra Hughes
"This was my second stay in the Poppy apartment and I enjoyed it as much as the first. I even love the church bells waking you at seven (quite a reasonable hour), although they didn't seem to ring as often this time. Sundays though, they did make up for this lack." Barbara Martin
"We loved the apartment; saw lots of activity at Hagios Georgios, people meeting in the square, view of the Palamidi, sunlight flooding the balconies early every morning--even liked the bells of the church." Patricia Spanner
"The Poppy apartment is lovely!" Ginger Van Ness
"The Poppy is without a doubt the best Untours apartment for comfort that we've ever stayed in." Barbara & Bruce Martin
"Lovely and spacious. It was great." Harriet and Gary Peck
"This was an excellent apartment-spacious and well equipped." Linda Gerber
"Great apartment. The view from the front balconies over the cathedral and up to the Palamidi was special all the time." Lee and Gail Forstie
"Poppy apartment was the best we've had, so spacious and so well equipped." Antonia Caretto and Linda Stechison
"We loved Nafplio and the convenience of everything!" Helen Cleveland
"Settling into Napflio and just living there for awhile was glorious." Pamela Nesbit
"This was the perfect vacation for our multi generational family. There was something for everyone and the convenience of having the cars and being able to walk around town was great." Nancy Cohn
"We really like the service of Untours, being met even though you are late is a real plus. This was our third Untours and probably won't be our last." Helen Cleveland
"Excellent location!! Very convenient to Old Town, beautiful views, and in a friendly neighborhood! The beds were not very comfortable and could not be pushed together to allow a couple to sleep together. The comforters did not appear to be clean. Open and spacious! Overall, a delightful place to stay! We loved it!" Ed Barrett
"Great location in midst of shops, restaurants, close to bus terminal, market nearby as well as Nafplio Santagma Square for events. 29 steps to 2nd floor not too bad as we only brought carryon luggage. St. George church across our courtyard was difficult due to frequent long and loud bell ringing for 5 special days when relic of St. Lucas was honored by frequent services, loud crowds. This occurred several times per day but it got us up and running ea
