The Old Mayors House offers private car parking space at the rear, as well as numerous spaces at the front of the house. It is in a quiet area of the village with bakery, butcher, green grocer, a couple of mini markets, as well as a traditional gyros bar, where the locals sit, talk, eat and drink.
Ermioni is on a peninsular embraced on both sides by the sea, with a woodland area at the end called BISTI. On the north side is the natural harbour with small fishing boats, shops, banks, post office, pharmacies, cafes, buses, taxis, ferries and the colourful weekly market. On the south side is Mandrakia where there are waterside bars, restaurants and tavernas with their octopus hung out in the sun. The Pine covered Bisti is the perfect place to walk and swim. It has spectacular views across to Hydra and Thermissia, a windmill, ancient remains to discover, and rocky coves with crystal clear waters. The old town rises up a hillside with fine views across to the islands and back across the fertile plains of citrus fruit, pomegranates and olive groves to the mountains behind. Within the old village of Ermioni, there are many traditional white/blue/lemon painted houses, besides a museum, 2 churches, the local bakers, Gyros bar and a couple of supermarkets. The sea, restaurants and old village are just a few minutes walk away and the rest of the town's amenities are about 5 minutes walk.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
