We wanted a few quiet days in a location from where we could drive to a number of interesting archeological sites and we have found it indeed! The Mycenae ruins are a top destination in their own right and Corinth, Epidavros, Tiryns, Argos and Nemea are all wtihin an hour's drive. The city of Nafplion, some spectacular mountain scenery and the wine region are interesting excursions from antiquity.
In Mycenae we chose La Petite Planete because it appeared to be the only hotel with a swimming pool and were not disappointed. We had a fine view of the site and the mountains from our small balcony, enjoyed the pool a great deal after (or before) the visits or drives, got a friendly and almost over-helpful service from the staff and savoured a few excellent dinners, prepared with the family's gardens own produce. Strongly recommended!
The only drawbacks were the airconditioning's inability to cope with very hot July weather and the presence of wasps around the pool.
