On your way to Nafplion, 2-3km before, you will see the sign of Epidaurus-Tolo. You need to turn left there, following the signs to Epidaurus. This is the peripheral road of the city of Nafplion. You will meet 3 big round about. You go straight when you meet the first 2 round about and you turn left when you meet the 3rd one. After turning left there and exactly 3km later you will see the sign of the village "Pirgiotika". You turn left there, to go in the village, and then just follow the signs of the hotel.

Important notification: The last part of the road, from the village "Pirgiotika" till the hotel (around 1km), the road is narrow and uphill since the hotel is in the countryside, at the top of a hill, among beautiful orange groves and olive groves. Just drive slow and you do not need to worry since the width of the road is more than enough for 2 vehicles. It is also very rare to find traffic since the hotel is the only establishment in the area with 14 rooms only.
