Sounio Villa Rental Photos and Description

50m from the beach with sea view

The villa is located on a hill, 50m from the coast, on 4000sqm of land facing the Southwest Aegean sea and the temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounio.

It is a private residence of 250sq m, designed by Manetas a well known Greek architect, and decorated by Stelios Anastasiadis' painting on the main atrium. It combines the principles of modern architecture with the ones of Greek traditional Aegean architecture keeping its dimensions small and human, fitting nicely with the nature of the 4000sq m land surrounding it. In the interior of the house the simple built beds and sofas create a fully functional environment for relaxed living. The out of season months provide a real escape to peace, tranquillity and relaxation.

Around the house we have no car traffic. This makes our community very private, quite and safe.In 100 m distance from the house you can dive to the sea and snorkel in the crystal waters from a small remote sunny beach with a rock cave that provides shade.

The house:

A 250 sqm villa in ground and first floor constructed with respect for the nature surrounding it (as it fits perfectly at the slope of a hill by dividing into smaller fragments).The design of the lodging incorporates the very best in indoor and outdoor living whilst ensuring the maximum of privacy.

The ground floor comprises a fully equipped kitchen, the living room and our main bedroom with double bed (1,70X200), walking closet and its bathroom.

Around the fireplace there are two large sofas (one of them can convert in a comfortable single bed), TV and DVD player with Dolby surrounding system and Internet. The atrium has a dining table and a big portable BBQ and it is ideal for enjoying the sunset and the sea at night.

The big windows the ventilation system, the central heating and the fireplace give the most for an easy indoor and outdoor living throughout the year.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and relatives stayed in the house for one week . The view was stunning, really beautiful. The house had an interesting architecture and was very clean. Everything you could ask for was in the house. The house had different stages witch was perfect if you wanted your own space for a while. The owners were very helpful and service minded! The sea was only a few steps away. A car is necessary to go for groceries or to visit restaurants in the area. Two restaurants and a mini market was in walking distance. I definitely recommend this house!

A Beautiful Family Reunion/40th Anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa in Sounio for a month in August-September, 2014.

It was a beautiful, simple villa in the Greek island style at the top of a hill overlooking the beautiful Aegean Sea. It was indoor/outdoor type living as there were multiple terraces with our master bedroom terrace facing the sea and the living room opening up by multiple sliding glass doors onto a large terrace also overlooking the sea. We had our entire family there for half the time and friends the other half. Our family included a child and toddler who were delighted with the villa and playing and swimming on the beaches everyday. We had our choice of numerous beaches within walking distance and tons of beaches within 5 minutes to an hour driving.

We went to the town for our supplies plus wine and liquor stores plus an amazing farmer's market every Thursday where we bought our fruit, veggies, nuts, oils, olives and even fresh fish! The town had lots of good restaurants and snack bars with cheese/spinach pies and rotisserie chicken, pizza etc.

The kitchen in our villa was fully stocked with everything needed to cook and serve our meals.

The bedrooms were very roomy and comfortable and the bathrooms were totally newly renovated with beautiful sinks and showers.

Everything was clean and well-maintained. If we needed anything it was a phone call away. Pagona and Maria did everything they could to accommodate us, our family and our friends.

We spent many happy hours eating our meals on the terrace and just staring at the sea.

We also were very convienient to the port and took several ferry trips to neighboring islands and even were able to hire a sailboat for the day to take us to Kea and swim at some amazing spots.

The villa was on a hill so we would walk up and down the hill to the various beaches but for an elderly or handicapped person it would not be appropriate except for being driven down to the sandy beach.

I would suggest water shoes for more ease of entry into the water at the rocky beaches, which were so breathtakingly beautiful!

We were there for a month so we made many friends on the beaches and everyone was very warm!

Its a very casual restful vacation in a beautiful home with very good air conditioners for the warmer months, although there were evenings when we didn't use them at all-the sea breeze was lovely!

One more thing-when we go there (we rented a car from the airport), there was fruit, cheese, yogurt, wine coffee and other goodies waiting for us!

our by far best holiday home experience ever

  • 5 of 5

The place is great. Pictures give you a good Impression but in reality it's much better: the house is a unique architectural jewel but with understatement. I've never seen a Holiday home as well equipped as this one. Not to speak of the warm welcome they gave us that's above and beyond what they had to do. Congratulations!
