The apartment is NOT in Xiropigado, but in Kiveri, a few miles north of Xiropigado and there is NO private garden, only 2 balconies, one of which is only suitable for drying your laundry. The other one overlooks the private access to the building, hence the lack of privacy. Clean sheets and towels are provided but we had to pay extra for the cleaning lady.
We booked this apartment because it boasted a private garden which is misleading.
A car is an absolute must although parking can be difficult. There are two small supermarkets nearby but the bakery, pharmacy and other shops are on the main road. Bus services to Argos and Nafplio.
The owners are very pleasant and we got on very well.
I would certainly recommend this rental as it was clean and well equipped.
