Ermionida is situated at the Southern tip of the Argolis (Argolida) region of the Peloponnese (Peloponnisos), mainland Greece (Hellas). Ermionida is named after the ancient Kingdom of Ermionis, with its central capital being Ermioni (Ancient Hermione). Today, the Ermionida region includes the towns of Ermioni, Kranidi, Porto Heli and Kilada, in addition to the villages of Kosta, St.Emilianos, Petrothalassa, Thermisia, Porto Hydra, Iliokastro, Fourni, Didyma, Ververonda and Salanti.
Ermionida has become the desirable and exclusive area of Argolida, due to its climate, infrastructure and natural beauty, as well as its central location to many cultural and historical places of interest. Within 1.5 hours, you can visit Epidavros, Nafplio, Tiryns, Tolo, Trizina, Galatas, as well as the beautiful Argo-Saronic islands of Hydra, Spetses and Poros. Athens and the port of Piraeus are only 2 hours away, by sea or road, and the Western port of Patras is just over 3 hours drive away, giving access to Venice and Arcona in Italy. Being on the mainland, Ermionida has the advantage of never being cut off from the world by adverse weather conditions.
Due to its new found popularity, investors in Ermionida have recently included many high ranking world politicians, international multi-millionaires, movie stars, entertainers and members of European Royal families. With this, the real estate prices reflect the exclusive regions standing. Land and property prices remain stable and some continue to rise, even in the difficult economic climate that we all live in today.
