LUXURY STONE VILLA, PANORAMIC SEA VIEW, IN SANDY BEACH, NEAR ATHENS

Marathon Villa Rental Photos and Description

An excellent place, full of character, to enjoy the best Greece offers: sea and countryside + Acropolis and Athens city center, all from a most convenient base.

It is located in a place looking like a far Aegean island, feeling like you are away from it all. You can't believe this place is only 50 km from down town Athens!

Acropolis, a World Class monument, its famous new museum, all major archaeological sites, the picturesque old Plaka and the modern city are at a little more than an hours reach, along with numerous cultural and recreational possibilities.

Schinias in Marathon where villa is located, is a top rated beach of Athens, boasting more than 6 km of sandy beach, with crystal clear and mostly calm waters, and a rare cone forest reaching to the water edge!

The Villa itself, is a rare example of traditional architecture, built with stones from its own land, in an inspired 'castle like' design.

The intended abudant use of natural and low treated materials, like stone, wood and iron, create a feeling of immediacy, comfort and inner relaxation in a way that few places can do.

It is tastefully decorated in a country but luxurious manner, with antiques, hand crafted wooden and iron furniture, that invite you to unwind in casualness comfort and style.

The house is built in the gated settlement of Judges & Attorneys.

It is positioned on the cliffs, 50 meters above the sea, providing privacy, and great views to the picturesque bay underneath and the Aegean sea.

Schinias, belongs to the municipality of Marathon, where the famous ancient battle took place and where the world renowned Marathon run originates.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Michael



Thank you so much for a beautiful experience in your amazing stone villa.

Our families from Australia loved the location, the views were amazing and it was perfect for our wedding preparations. We had some unforgettable memories with our friends and families.

We will be seeing you again some time in the near future.

We will post some photos of our wedding on your facebook page.

Thank you again

With an inherent affection to Architecture, tradition and aesthetics, owners were set to make their dream vacation villa.

Michael purchased this villa in 1996

One of the joys of travelling abroad is to experience different places and feel the local culture.

Architecture and tradition are important cultural parts of a country's culture, especially for travellers. So, having the opportunity to stay in a Villa which is a rare example of the vanishing local architectural forms, building materials, and inspired design, is an important advantage for many travellers. Universal and plain identity buidings, that you can be in any place in the world will add litlle to your Greek experience.

The Villa is located in a quite settlement, overlooking the sea and next to a 'top rated' sandy beach of 6km long with a rare cone forest in it's back reaching the water edge.

Yoy nave the option to enjoy the sea and nature as you wish as there are busy or isolated spots to choose from.

Small villages or bigger cities and a lot of archaelogical interest places are within easy reach for you to visit and spend your holidays interestingly.

Besides, the city centre of Athens, is within an hours reach.

FABULOUS HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful holiday location. The villa completely lives up to the pictures on the website. Well equipped and very well supported by the owner. Quiet location with excellent views over the Aegean Sea. Short walk to the rocky cove with various access points to the sea with good snorkelling. Little shop nearby that provides all the essentials.

Stone Villa Castle exceeded our expectations! Waking to the view of the sun coming up over the sea each morning was simply paradise. Our party of 18 people took advantage of the short walk to the Rocky beach as well as the short drive to the sandy beach. We also loved swimming by the pool that was maintained daily by the owner. Michael was a wonderful host, welcoming us with appetizers and drink upon arrival and making a traditional Greek dinner our last night in Shinias. He also lent his GPS when traveling to Cape Sounion/Temple of Poseidon which was welcome. The Villa is secluded, so you will need a car to get around.

Understand there are many steps within the house itself on several levels. This was not a problem for us, but anyone with difficulty negotiating stairs, beware. The elevator from the street level was welcome, when bringing baggage in. The kitchens were stocked with necessary spices, oils and all tools needed for making meals. We utilized the bar-b-que
grill several times! This place was a dream come true!

LOVELY STAY AT THE STONE CASTLE VILLA

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely week's stay at the villa. Michael, the owner, was very helpful prior to the stay. He met us when we arrived and loaned us a GPS for the duration with important destinations already encoded in it. The view of the Aegean is spectacular. We also liked that we could take our children to historical sites in Athens and Marathon. A car is essential for a stay as large shops and restaurants will be found in Marathon or Nea Makri.

A SUPERB STAY AT THE STONE CASTLE VILLA

  • 5 of 5
We spent 11 nights (X-mas 2013) at Stone Castle Villa and cannot say enough great things about the place….and especially about its owner and host, Michael.

We had 10 family members staying at the villa …a mix of adults and kids. Everyone loved the villa and we found it had plenty of room for all of us…for sleeping, cooking, eating, and just hanging out. We definitely could have had more people stay there very comfortably.

The villa is just gorgeous on the inside…constructed largely of local stone and wood beams. It has a very warm, inviting, and homey feel to it. All of the furniture is of high quality and extremely comfortable.

The views of the ocean and cliffs are truly breathtaking. And it really does look like a castle from the outside!! It is just a really cool and stunning structure inside and out that even has its own elevator (which the kids loved!).

But even better than the facilities is the Villa’s Greek owner: Michael. Michael (who speaks excellent English) isn’t just someone who rents you a house, he is someone who cares intensely about his guests having an excellent stay in Greece.

Here is just a small sampling of things Michael did to make sure our stay was excellent and memorable:

- Prepared a wonderful, delicious Greek dinner for us upon arrival
- Left a plentiful and delicious breakfast for us for our first morning at the Villa
- Loaned us his GPS for the entire stay which he had programmed with key spots
- Provided a Christmas tree for our kids to decorate as we arrived on Dec 25
- With less than 24 hours notice, scrambled to get us a reservation on New Year’s Eve at a restaurant overlooking the Acropolis (which was excellent and affordable)
- Made multiple calls to various museums and other tourist destinations on our behalf

It was like having a world class concierge available 24/7 who is always really happy to help!!

On a final note, we found the location of the Villa in Schinias to be great. You were definitely out of Athens in a very quiet neighborhood but close to many beautiful beaches, good tavernas, and sizable grocery stores. Getting to Athens was easy via Metro.

From the Villa, we did the following day trips:

- Athens
- Nafplion/Epidauros/Mycenae
- Sounion
- Delphi/Arahova
- Meteora
- Island of Hydra

So in sum: excellent facilities, excellent location, excellent views, and absolutely fabulous host!!!! It was a great trip and a great stay at Stone Castle Villa.

Owner's Response: Thank you Tres, you were great too!
For dinner it was the least I could offer after travelling 24hrs on a Christmas day and arriving midnight...
Best regards

AMAZING PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
The house is fantastic, in an amazing location. The house has everything you could wish for, and Michael and his whole family are incredibly helpful on anything you might need, they often even anticipate your needs. I have rented in many places and with many people, some good and some bad, but this is certainly at the top. We will definitely return.
