Porto Heli

The port of Porto Heli

About Porto Heli

This small peninsula in the northeast Peloponnese, within easy access by car from Athens, has justifiably won the title of the Greek Riviera. Beautiful luxury villas, built in harmony with the unique natural environment, “hide” in the fiord-like coasts attracting each summer renowned guests from the global jet-set looking for a peaceful private retreat. The serene nature, with the hills full of pines and cypresses, and the small bays with the turqoise water, makes the perfect scenery for quiet, laid-back holidays, ideal for families, and in close proximity to the nature, with authentic local food and fresh products straight from the fishers and farmers. Mass tourism hasn’t find its way to this “hidden” treasure of the Pelopennese, where you can rent some of the most luxury villas in Greece. If a luxury villa in Porto Heli offers the perfect hidaway in the archetypal mediterranean setting, the stylish nearby island of Spetses adds on those cosmopolitan and picturesque touches that only a greek island can offer making Ermioni an ideal destination for those want to relax in privacy but also enjoy the unique Greek island lifestyle.
