About Us

Hello and warm greetings to everyone from Bohdan and Elaine   

We are a British couple now living in the traditional 'old village' part of Ermioni since 2005.  We have always been in love with the country, its rich history and captivating culture, ever since our very first Greek holiday experience in 1978.  We originally created our ermioni.info website in 2009 to show and describe the small coastal town of Ermioni and its surrounding areas.  The travel guides at the time described Ermioni as a small fishing village, only worth spending a couple of hours of your time. That was certainly not how we felt about Ermioni.  As we originally came here as visitors ourselves many years ago, we feel we can still capture the feeling of the locallity and the way we originally felt about Ermioni as first-time visitors.  We found how easy it was to fall in love with this charming quiet coastal town. 

Initially, we offered our new home in Ermioni as a holiday rental destination.  We had many telephone calls and emails from potential visitors asking us what Ermioni was like and what there was to do there.  Although we were able to explain and describe what Ermioni was like, we felt that if visitors were able to actually see images of the town and what went on here throughout the year, it would be far more informative than a long verbal description.  We are pleased to say that over 95% of the images on our site are ours as we believe a picture is worth a thousand words, however, a few historical images have been used to show the lasting character and ancient past of this fascinating area of Argolida.  We were lucky enough to have arrived and photographed events during the 'Golden Age' of Festivals in Ermioni, before many local festivals were regionalised and before the smart camera-phone arrived on the scene.

The historic coastal town of Ermioni is charming in its simplicity, has not been ruined by mass tourism, as some other parts of the country, is still typically Greek but receptive and friendly to foreigners from all over the world.  Visitors to Ermioni are not the typical European 'beach tourists', the town thankfully attracts a different type of visitor.  Some people say it is because Ermioni does not have any beaches, and yet it is surrounded by some of the best sandy beaches in the Ermionida area.  Even today, the majority of visitors that come to Ermioni are Greek, with many from Athens that need to get away from the city life.  We think that anyone who wants to experience the true authentic Greece will not be disappointed, as many visitors to Ermioni enjoy their holiday vacations and continue to return year after year.

We are very proud of our website, as in creating its content over the years, it has enabled us to meet some wonderful people, hear their stories and experience and share in their historic festivals and local traditions.  Although we will always be 'foreigners', we have been made welcome and feel a small part of their community.  The ermioni.info site continues to be a 'work-in-progress' as we continue to expand and update the information we supply, and feel that our website can answer the many questions and enquiries that visitors ask us, or provide them with the information they seek.

With the amount of information and content the ermioni.info site has to offer, it is best viewed on a desktop PC or tablet.

The ermioni.info site we helped to design, organise and create is an image-driven information site which we continue to update.  It offers a description of Ermioni, details of places to visit and properties available to rent or buy in the Ermionida area and the nearby islands.  Featuring background information from Ancient Hermione to present day developments of this picturesque historic town.

If you wish to view many more images of Ermioni, the surrounding area and various annual festivals of Ermionida, then click onto the Flickr link, under the 'Find us on the web' section below.  You will see how much, or little, Ermioni has changed over the years.

We hope you enjoy ermioni.info and your visit to Ermioni will leave you with fond and happy memories of this very special place.
