Porto Heli Villa Rental Photos and Description
Stunning villa with 4 spacious bedrooms, between Porto Heli and Ermione
Villa Marina is a stunning luxury villa of 275m2 (ideally sleeping 8) located in the Petrothalassa area of Porto Heli. Its location provides it with beautiful panoramic sea views of the local bay in addition to the rolling hills (some covered with vineyards). The house’s open plan has been designed to capture the views of the sea and the pool from the moment you walk in. Three large veranda areas (separate dining and seating areas) and wide patio paving all allow maximum use of the large pool (7m/12m). Internally, the high ceilings and interior-designed furnishings provide a spacious, yet cool respite from the Summer sun whilst central heating and a working fireplace make it ideal for earlier in the season. The spacious kitchen and living room evoke the relaxed style of the nearby island of Spetses. Other amenities include individual air conditioning in all the rooms, TV, and the latest Bosch kitchen appliances. The nearest pine-clad beach is a gentle 10 minute walk away.
Places to visit: Apart from the nearby villages of Porto Heli, Kranidi and Ermione, there are numerous places to see within a couple of hours of the Villa. Top of the list should be the beautiful town of Nauplion with its neoclassical centre and Venetian castle. It is blessed with a dramatic setting and has numerous restaurants and shops. A visit to quintessentially Greek island of Spetses is also a must and there are ample water taxis or buses to take you the short hop across the sea from Costa. Poros is also another nearby beautiful island and there is a dramatic and very scenic drive to get there. Hydra is famous for being popular with artists and when you get there you will see why. The scenery is dramatic and the villages seem to cling to the steep mountainside. Again there are water buses and water taxis available approximately 20 minutes drive from the villa. Some of Greece’s greatest archaeological sites are also nearby including Mycenae (the home of King Agammemnon), Tyrinth and Epidaurus (a vast marble theatre where you can still see classical Greek drama).
Travel: The nearest airport is Athens. It is a 3.5 hour flight from the UK. It is recommended that you hire a car at the airport and drive to the villa (approximate time is 2.5 hours). Alternatively take a taxi to the port of Piraeus (approximately 1 hour) and then take the Flying Dolphin hydrofoil to Ermione or Porto Heli. Travel time is approx 2hrs. We would strongly recommend hiring a car throughout your stay since public transport is minimal.
Additional villa Information: There are paved areas all around the villa and three separate patio areas (one in front of the house, one next to the pool and one next to the downstairs bedroom/TV room). In front of the house is a large private pool (12m x 7m and a poolside shower). The house sits behind remote controlled gates and is on a large 4000sq metre plot with extensive gardens and there is ample car parking space. There is a gardener, who also looks after the pool and the caretaker lives nearby. The villa is cleaned once a week. Children are welcome although please note that the pool is not enclosed and there are no stair guards.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We enjoyed this house thoroughly. From the beautiful view to the delicious restaurant. The clear sea was beautiful and warm. Spetses is very nice too! The pool was very nice and refreshing after a long day windsurfing, kayaking and sailing. Everything about this house we love
