Nafplia Palace Hotel and Villas, GreeceIn the heart of the Peloponnese, the ancient town of Nafplion is one of the best destinations for visitors to Greece- just 140 kilometers from Athens. Sun-drenched and covered with bougainvillea blossoms, the town overlooks the shimmering Bay of Argolis. As an ancient crossroads of culture, Nafplion is filled with Roman Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman architecture. Perched high above the town on the Bronze Age acropolis of Akronafplia, the Nafplia Palace is an extraordinary hideaway, actually built within the walls of an archaeological site. In fact, the hotel has an elevator that tunnels down through the rock to the picturesque town below.

Nafplia Palace Hotel, GreeceA stylish blend of marble, wood, stone and steel seamlessly merging with its historic environment, this unique hotel offers a chic spa, a beach, a pool with sun beds and poolside bar, and an excellent restaurant with heart-stopping views through walls of class. In fact, all rooms and villas have stunning sea views. These sumptuous accommodations are equipped with marble bathrooms with Bvlgari toiletries, and many have balconies and private swimming pools or outdoor jacuzzis. The Independent described the rooms as "something out of James Bond": "Huge, open-plan, and with abundant flat-screen TVs...its own infinity plunge pool on a private terrace." Villa guests are spoiled with private butler service and a heated infinity pool.
