The Peloponnese region
Little is written about Ermioni in the guide books, yet it is a beautiful Greek coastal town, very central to many places of historical and cultural interest, surrounded by many coves and beaches. It is situated, and gives its name to the Ermionida area, in the South-East of the Argolida (Argolis) region, within the Peloponnese, mainland Greece.
Ermioni (Ancient Hermione) can be divided into three sections. The commercial Limania port and harbour is located on the Northern side, with the lively Mandrakia on the Southern side of the peninsula. At the Eastern end of the town, is the archaeological pine-cladded forest area called the Bisti. Here one can enjoy leisurely walks at any time of the day, as there is plenty of shade, and visit the 5thC BC temple of Athena, and other ancient, Byzantine and medieval monuments. You can also swim in the clear blue sea, from the rocky coves along the Southern side of the Bisti, which overlook the islands of Dokos and Hydra. There are no beaches in Ermioni, apart from a very small stretch of sand close to the Bisti, where some local residents go to enjoy their swim. The sea surrounds the town from three sides, giving the feel of being on an island, but without the possibility of being stranded in adverse weather conditions.
Books refer to Ermioni as a seaside town of captivating beauty. This is absolutely correct, as it still remains authentically Greek, charming, hospitable and friendly. For the visitor to Ermioni, there are numerous amenities, from banks, post office, ATM machines, doctors, dentists, pharmacies, physiotherapist, tourist office where one can also hire cars, real estate offices if you wish to buy land or property, taxis, buses to Kranidi and Kosta, various shops, supermarkets, beauty salon, hairdressers, barbers, cafes, bars and tavernas.
There is a colourful weekly farmers market on Thursday mornings only, 07:30 - 12:30, selling assorted fresh fruit, fish and produce, various clothing, footwear, handicrafts and domestic household items.
Ermioni is a working community, with just over 3,000 permanent residents, so most facilities are open throughout the year. However, during winter, some tavernas do close for the olive harvesting season and re-open either in January or for the Orthodox Easter. Many festivals still take place throughout the year and should not be missed. Ermioni has one of the best micro-climates in the whole region, with the summer months being hot and sunny, and the winter months being warm, mostly dry with clear blue skies, which makes it a perfect time to visit.
This stunning villa is situated 3.5 kms out of Ermioni, where one will find peace and tranquility awaiting them. However, it is within walking or driving distance of Ermioni. Classed as being the undiscovered jewel of the Argolida and undiscovered by mass tourism. It is off the beaten track, a rare gem and has been kept a secret by the locals and visiting Athenians. Ermioni has one of the best climates all year round. The summer months are extremely hot, yet the winters are very mild with plenty of sunshine during the day, but cooler nights. It is a working Greek community with a mixture of ages, so it doesn't close down in winter. Everything is opened. Why not combine Ermioni with a stay in Athens, one of the Saronic islands, or Nafplio which was once the capital of Greece.
The town of Ermioni itself is on a peninsular embraced on both sides by the sea, with a woodland area at the end called BISTI. This pine covered archaeological site is a perfect place to enjoy a leisurely walk at any time of the year, or swim in the crystal blue sea and enjoy some of the views across to Hydra and Thermissia. Here you will discover ancient remains, an old windmill and rocky coves. On the north side of the peninsular is the natural harbour called LIMANIA, with small fishing boats, shops, banks, post office, pharmacies, cafes, buses, taxis, ferries and the colourful weekly market. On the south side is MANDRAKIA, where you will find waterside bars, restaurants and tavernas with their octopus hung out in the sun, as well as music bars.
Within the old village of Ermioni, there are many traditional Greek village houses, besides a museum and a toy museum, 2 churches, a mini market which sells fresh bread, Yorgos the village butcher, a fruit and veg shop which sells a good variety of fruit and vegetables, eggs and soft drinks, and a village library. The sea, restaurants and other amenities of Ermioni town, or the lively Mandrakia side, are just a few minutes walk away from LemonTree House.
Wandering around Ermioni you will come across traditional coffee shops and see the picturesque tavernas, which are overhung with octopus drying in the sun. The reputation for Ermioni is for producing fine products, such as pomegranates, citrus fruits, fresh fish, and of course the well-known local olive oil. The colourful Thursday market is full of local produce.
In Ermioni you can enjoy the hospitality of the Greek people or lose yourself in a land of fascinating ancient history and myth. Linger over mouth-watering mezedes, sample the local rose wine or traditional Ouzo at the waterside tavernas, and ponder the colourful reflections of the fishing boats bobbing on gentle waters.
