The Amalias townhouse-style condominiums are truly a home-away-from-home in Greece. A little under an hour from Athens by car, the location makes you feel as though you are on one of the islands - tranquil and quiet and only a stone's throw from the crystal clear sea. The property is immaculately maintained with great attention to detail and plenty of modern conveniences, including a well-equipped full-sized kitchen. Our condo was spotless, lofty and spacious with plenty of windows to let in the beautiful light and fresh sea breezes. The pool was nice and large, and there was ample poolside seating - Amalias is not short on amenities of any kind. We also felt very safe and secure at the property. As we were meeting friends who were also staying there, we all appreciated how easy it was to socialize in the common areas while still enjoying our own private spaces as well - a great balance. We loved walking through the quiet neighborhood, too, with its great little corner market, and just a few minutes away by car is the historically important town of Marathon. The beach there is nice, and nearby Schinias is even better. Marathon is also home to the only marble dam in the world, an attraction that is definitely worth seeing. And then of course there is Athens, where you can easily spend a day of sightseeing or a night out and then come home to Amalias - your seaside retreat away from the city with all the comforts of home!
