About Despina

Ok.. This photo is NOT taken in front of my home. However, I wanted to tell you I also love to travel and have done so all my life. meeting people from all over the world is the highlight of my life, other than my 4 grand children!

I have found out that people who travel on their own, are adventurous, love change and challenge and want to learn about the Greek way of living, our culture and cuisine!

My husband Stavros and I, share our time between beautiful North Carolina and Greece.

Despina purchased this villa in 2000

Why Despina chose Marathon

This is a luxury villa for folks who love great views, their comfort and privacy. it took us several years to decide whether we preferred being closer to the water, but loose the view and the quiet! We chose to built on the top of the hill, enjoying the great vistas and still being within 3 minutes from the water. The best of both worlds.

What makes this villa unique

We are strategically located with a day's trip to several great archaeological places and the ports of Athens that get you to many islands. The airport is 50 minutes away and the closest city within 20 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed staying in the beautiful home of toe of the mountain. The views were breathtaking! Our group of family that totaled 10 enjoyed al lthe space and decks. Our first trip to Greece and we loved ending our vacation in Marathon.

Beautiful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Wow. There were 10 women sharing this gorgeous space. It was such a beautiful villa with a lot of room without get in each others way. Despina ensured that all our needs were met and assisted us with supplies and referral to her amazing tour guides - Rosa and Stavros. It was difficult to leave as we had become accustomed to feeling very spoilt. The views were majestic and I highly recommend this accommodation to friend or families.

I stayed at this property with a group of 10 women for 4 nights. We had an amazing time there and the Villa exceeded our expectations in so many ways. The views were spectacular, and we enjoyed both sunrises and sunsets every day. The bedrooms were luxurious, and all beds were very comfortable. There were many balconies and outside areas, and we all had privacy and space both inside and out. The owner was extremely helpful, and helped us to arrange meals (bringing in a chef for our welcome dinner) and have fresh pastries delivered daily for breakfast. The couple who manage the property became friends in just that short time, and they organised transportation, and also took us for an amazing full day guided tour of Athens, including a show and dinner. I would recommend this property for anyone considering a retreat, but transport is essential, as it is not within walking distance of beaches or restaurants.

Utterly utterly spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our Stay. The villa was spotless and beautifully beautifully decorated. The views were incredible. The nearby restaurants and taxi services had very friendly staff that made us feel welcome. (Go to 'Plateia' for the chicken gyros!)

My favorite moment was jumping off the boulders at the cove down below- the water was deep blue and pristine. Stavros and Despina, the owners, are kind, considerate, and were extremely helpful to us as we planned our trip.

The entire experience was MAGICAL. The views! the views! the views! I cannot rate this villa highly enough,

Incredible vacation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived exhausted and were very pleased with the home. We had a large family reunion and the home was spacious, with very comfortable beds, beautiful views and well appointed kitchen. It was everything that it was advertised for and then some. Being history buffs we were exited that the house is close to the historic area of the battle of Marathon, Eating places were plenty within 10-20 min of the house but we preferred to stay at the house for dinner so we could enjoy the spectacular sunsets. Owners were well informed and helpful with our requests. I would recommend this house to my friends and family.

Our amazing holiday!!!

  • 5 of 5

Well, we have been home for about a week and our amazing holiday seems like a blur. We arrived to a smiling Stavros, who ended up being our travel agent, chauffeur, and knowledgable guide for the week, I don't know what we would have done without him. His willingness to help and organize was wonderful and he would make a really great rally car driver :] We enjoyed his company and would highly recommend his services. He organized our trips to Athens, Santorini, ferry island tour and Meteroa all in a week, busy but awesome. When we arrived at the villa other Stavros was helpful and considerate. Helping with our baggage and giving a quick tour of our home for the week. He was readly avaliable if we needed him. The villa was more then we ever dreamed, what a view and all that space and marble was so different from home.

Everything was clean and well taken care of. We used the kitchen for a few meals but since it was our "girls" holiday we made very good use of the taverna at the bottom of the mountain. She was wonderful and the food was delicious. We spent many hours talking and drinking wine on the deck and even spent one night with the lights turned off to watch the lightning storm. Beautiful!!!!

Thanks for the use of your beautiful home and tell Rosa, Stavros and Stavros how much we enjoyed their company.

Sincerely from 6, 50 year old girlfriends from Canada. "Yammis"

Gorgeous hilltop villa!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot adequately describe this breathtaking hilltop villa over looking Aegean Sea and the island of Evia. Magnificent sunrises and sunsets, multiples porches and patios, Abundant windows creates the feeling of a being on a sea vessel as you gaze out at the azure waters..

Inside decor is artistically created with beautiful colors - azure blues, pale yellows, sunburst rust and gold in the fabrics and furnishings. A great vacation home for extended families!! This is our third return to this villa and it is like coming home each time we visit. Beautifully maintained.
