DESCRIPTION OF THE VILLA: This luxurious villa proves that there is no need to compromise between breath-taking views, walking distance to the beach, a short drive to cozy restaurants and vibrant nightlife, and proximity to Athens and to the airport. Ideally situated in the exclusive area of Agios Nikolaos, just 25 minutes from the airport and 45 minutes from the center of Athens, the villa overlooks one of the most beautiful parts of the 'Greek riviera.' By taking a 5-minute (downhill) walk from the front door, one can choose between sand and pebble beaches, and activities such as wind-surfing, scuba diving and water-skiing. Cozy local tavernas and seaside restaurants specializing in seafood abound along the coastline below the villa. The resort towns of Anavyssos and Saronida, with full-sized supermarkets, restaurants, and bars, cinemas are a 5-minute drive away.
Please note, that in our villa there are TWO LUXYRY APTS FOR RENT that have been designed to give you top quality accommodation with modern facilities.
EXTERIOR DETAILS: The apartment's southern terraces (see photos) offer views of the sunset year-round. The villa's northern exposure includes a balcony outside the master bedroom and features beautiful stonework. The villa is surrounded by meticulously landscaped grounds that include palmtrees, several local flower varieties, a lawn, and a cactus garden.
ACTIVITIES: The villa is located circa 500 meters away from the nearest beach, although at a hill top. The Agios Nikolaos beach is ideal for swimming and snorkelling. At the same time, a beach bar on the east side of the beach serves cold drinks and has beach chairs and umbrellas available for rent.
The Anavyssos beach (Alykes), is one of the best spots for windsurfing, jet-skiing and other water sports in Attica and can be accessed by car or bike from the villa (1km). Having your own equipment is not necessary, as you can rent everything on the spot. The villa is located 2km away from Saronida, 17km from Vouliagmeni and 20km from Glyfada, all areas with great nightlife, restaurants and cinemas. Further, it is 6km away from the Lagonissi Grand Resort, one of the most luxurious hotels in Greece, where you can enjoy their exclusive beach (for a fee), top-notch restaurants and bars. Families can enjoy Agios Nikolaos' outdoors sports facilities and playground. Within 200m from the villa there is a playground for children as well as an outdoor basketball court, where locals organise friendly games every day.
Further, tennis courts are accessible in Eden Beach Hotel (0.8km) and Saronida (3km) from the villa, for a fee.
Finally, Agios Nikolaos being a rather quiet village, offers a lot of challenging routes for biking (conquering the local hills is an intense exercise). Further, biking to distant locations on the scenic coastal road can be an excellent way to enjoy the local natural beauty. Bikes can be made available for guests with advance notice.
SIGHTSEEING: The villa is ideally located near one of the most important and scenic ancient sites in Attica, the temple of Poseidon in Sounio (15 mins drive). A local favorite as well as a tourist essential, the sunset as seen through the Temple of Poseidon(446 b.c.) at Cape Sounion, will light your dreams long after you'ne left.
There is also at 'Lavrio,' an amphitheatre,the oldest theatre in Greece...over 3,000 years old, it is called Thoriko.
It is also within driving distance to the Acropolis and the museums and sites in the centre of Athens (40 minutes drive).
-Definitely worth a day trip from our property to Ancient Mycenae or Ancient Epidaurus, or to Nafplio or to Ancient Delphi.

Similarly, the rental price assumes reasonable use of all utilities and appliances, including the air-conditioning units. Unreasonably high electricity or water bills may result in additional fees.
