Information about Tolo
Tolo is a charming, picturesque seaside resort located on the Argolic Gulf that has been welcoming visitors from all over the world for many years. Originally a small fishing village, it is situated on the coast of the Argolida, just under 2 hours from Athens, Patras and Kalamata.
Amaryllis Hotel Apartments are located on the ring road of the town overlooking the whole of Tolo bay in a quiet neighbourhood ideal for relaxing holidays. The hotel is easily accessible by car, taxi or public transport and offers private off road parking to its guests, treasured during the summer months when parking is scarce in the town.
The well organised golden, "sandy beach" of Tolo is a 15 minute walk and there are supermarkets, bakers, butchers, gift shops, a kiosk, pharmacy, post office, restaurants, bars and cafes. The nearest hospital is in the town of Nafplio, at a distance of 11 km.
Tolo beach is very well set up with sunbeds & umbrellas for rent and showers available. There are a variety of water sports dotted along the shore for the more adventurous, surfing, sailing, water skiing, scuba diving, boat rental, pedaloes, ringo & banana rides and a bouncy castle. Many restaurants and tavernas serving fresh fish and seafood, beach bars and cafes along the seashore and line the main road which follows the coast from the entrance of Tolo up to the harbour. Take a walk up to the harbour, see Romvi island opposite and the fishing boats from which Tolo makes its living.
There are one day cruises that depart from the harbour to the islands of Hydra & Spetses on a regular basis which make a great day out. Ask us for tickets.
Visit Ancient Asini which is located on the headland at the "sandy beach" end of Tolo and learn about the Mycenaean port from where the ships left for Troy and much more information through a digital presentation recently made. There are some mapped out walks above Tolo that, depending on your athletic prowess, lead all the way to Nafplio.
Many people use Tolo as a base from which to visit all the very special places that we have of historical, natural and geological importance on the Peloponnese, particularly in the low season when it is cooler and less busy.
