Greek Summer Holidays in

The Village of Tolo

Nelly's Hotel Apartments are situated in the picturesque village of Tolo, a popular seaside destination in Greece nestled inbetween the mountains on the coast in the Argolida county of the Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece, just two hours from Athens and Kalamata and three hours from Patra. The climate in Tolo is particularly warm all year round compared to other areas of Greece.

Situated right on the beach, Nelly's Hotel is ideally located in the centre of Tolo close to all amenities. Imagine stepping out of your accommodation and right on to the sand, have breakfast in Nelly's Cafe, take a coffee to go, have lunch with a cold beer, an afternoon snack or dinner followed by drinks in the bar.

The location of Tolo is such that it is ideal as a base from which to see the Peloponnese and its archaeological sites and areas of natural beauty. Walk across the top of the mountains behind Tolo to Nafplion for a spectacular view of the coast. There are endless possibilities for excursions from Tolo and we would suggest checking out our activities in and from Tolo for some ideas and information about what to do during your visit. In addition to this there are daily cruises through the summer months that leave from Tolo harbour to the islands of Hydra & Spetses and at some times also to Monemvasia.

Islands of Tolo Bay

Romvi Island/Koronisi Island

The biggest and most noticable island of the two, Romvi is a landmark island that has never been built on, except for some walls on some part of the island probably built during the Ottoman occupation. It is uninhabited but a popular destination for a small trip, sunbathe and swim both at the front and the back of the island!

The Koronisi island is one of the jewels of Tolo! The small island, with the tiny chapel of Agioi Apostoloi (Holy Apostles) perched on its top, is situated right in the middle of the bay and is accessible by boat, pedalo or by strong swimmers. The church opens for ceremonies such as baptisms or weddings. At night the island is lit up, a beautiful sight, probably the most photographed spot in Tolo.. it it the perfect view from which to enjoy a drink or a meal, especially in the evening.
