The most well known village in the region of Argolida. Made famous by the impossibly glamorous members of the original 1950’s jet set.
Founding members of the ‘Greek Chapter’ Niarchos and Onassis considered Portohelli the perfect distance from Athens for weekend breaks and mini cruses. So Portohelli grew from a sleepy fishing village into a major second home destination for wealthy Athenians.
It is now an important stop on the super yacht circuit cruising the islands of the Saronic Gulf. The new marina with floating pontoons accommodates boats up to 60m with a 4m draft. Super yachts moore at anchor in the sheltered bay or stern too on the sea wall. All by prior arrangement…!
Portohelli is the last port of call on the daily boat service from Piraeus, Athens, a short water taxi ride from the sophistication of the island of Spetses and like the other three key local villages is within day trip distance of Epidavros Ancient Theatre, the fort town of Nafplion, Ancient Mycenae, the islands of Hydra & Poros. The caves of Frahthi and Dydima and a host of other ancient sites. Go sightseeing crazy or not at all.
Portoheli village is a busy night time destination with restaurants, tavernas, great beach clubs, simple shops, grocery stores and essential services. Sunsets in the region are dramatic and spectacular due to the ever present mountain ranges of southern Peloponnese.
A perfct place, for sunset & cocktails…
