For those who love quiet and calm holidays, staying in the hotel La Petite Planet constitutes a good choice.  Mycenes is a nodal point from where you can visit the entire prefecture of Argolida, with its rich archaeological sites, natural beauties and well known beaches. However beyond the wonderful visits at the archaeological sites and the excursions in the rest of Argolida, there are various other activities around the region.

In distance of hardly 5 km, one can partake in organised motocross (one of the biggest in Europe) but also with the mountains around the hotel one can enjoy mountain biking. The rural walks are particularly dear to the residents and visitors of Mycenaes. There are a lot of small rural paths that give the possibility of not only pleasant walks but also the possibility of visiting unknown small archaeological treasures, small solitary churches and wells with clean fresh water that will quench your thirst.

For the more experienced climbers we propose the climbs around the mountains of Prophet Hlia, Sara and the Aetovoyni which constitutes shelter for eagles and falcons. Finally we add that in the earth of Mycenaes there is an array of treasures growing such as sprouts, oregano, camomile, and wild roka. If you see some locals gathering greens and herbs, you can ask them to show you how to pick them and that way you take with you a few scents and flavours from the ground of Atreidon.
