The villa is ideally suited for families. Clean and tidy with marble flooring throughout and on the front terrace, it sleeps a maximum of 9 (2 airconditioned double bedrooms with double bed + single overlooking the sea and with a large adjoining balcony, and a further airconditioned bedroom with 3 singles - which also has its own bathroom and kitchenette and is ideal for yougsters who desire some independence).

The infinity pool provides a large sunbathing area with poolside shower.
There is parking for 2-3 cars under a shady trellis.
Locally, there are lovely walks and great beaches with clean sea water - and in the sea by the village there are ruins of the ancient town to be explored with snorkelling or diving equipment (there is a dive school in the village for those who are keen). There are good tavernas in the village and surrounding area, a well-stocked pharmacy, bakeries, several decent supermarkets and two petrol stations, along with a shady waterfront park with small children's fairground rides. Of course, the ancient theatre of Epidavros is spectacular and definitely worth the short journey to visit. International plays are held there in the summer months - and musical performances are held at a smaller sister theater in the village. For those looking for evening entertainments there are bars, a sports complex with football and basketball area, and tennis courts, plus a local disco venue on the outskirts of the village which opens in the summer. Ancient Epidavros is only about 100 miles from Athens and is not affected by large scale tourism.
The towns of Korinth, Naphlio and Mycenae are also worth a visit for those keen to explore further afield, and for those who want to visit Athens there are daily bus services. Korinth is about 45 minutes by car, while Athens center/airport is about 1.5 hours - all on good roads.
There are no hidden costs associated with the Villa - it is a superb choice for those who are searching for tranquility without loss of modernity and creature comforts. This is the ideal holiday place to 'zonk' out from all the daily stresses with a glass of wine as you watch the sun set over the sea and mountain!
This is a superb property with all mod cons, airconditioning, a large pool, and well positioned with panoramic views over the Saronic Gulf, close to the beech. Highly recommended. We saw many of the ancient sites of which there are many in the area like Epidavros theater, Mycenae, Athens and the Acropolis with the new museum, Delfi, Naphlio, Methena, etc. The owner even took us to a beautiful site, not very well known by the Greeks themselves.
