Cycling Route

The Route

Head north of Villa Starlett and bike along the coastline enjoying panoramic views of the Argolid Bay and the Argolid basin, where both cities of Nafplio and Argos dominate. Go past Kyveri, follow the mild uphill road to Andritsa and enjoy the openness of the valley next to you. A little before reaching Andritsa, past  the old railway bridge, the road turns steeper. The winding road going up will compensate you with magnificent views to the mountain ranges and the valleys below. After Elaiochori at the end of the road you go left and the road gets even steeper up until Dragoumi. Enjoy a scenic route amid a range of plane trees, oak trees and walnut trees while the road starts to become downhill. Go through Kastri and Oria, then past Karatoulas and Nea Chora. While you get closer to Perdikovrysi the little canyon on your right will offer you magical settings. Go for a brief stop at Perdikovrysi to take pictures and contemplate the Monastery of Agios Prodromos that is literally hanging on the rocky slope opposite the village. Now take the road to Stolos via Aetochori, then follow the mild downhill to Louloudia enjoying marvelous views to the open valley below. The road continues along the valley of Tanos river, past the Mansion of Herodes Atticus and all the way to Astros Town. Your round is about to be completed after you’ll follow the coastal road amidst olive groves and crystal blue waters to reach again Villa Starlett.
