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!
Despina purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Despina chose Marathonas
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, however the view and serenity of the place are unique. 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.

Greek Olympian experience
Imagine being on top of the hill, feeling like being on top of the world, with a 360 degrees sea view from many terraces all around the villa watching what is happening down there and having the option to reach within minutes (true by car, as you need a car) most of the spots you can see. Isn't it an Olympian like experience?
We have been there as a large multi families, multi generations group and it felt like being a gang of Gods on top of the Olympus mountains. Lot of space, to socialize and to have privacy. All options opened from spending the whole day there - on the terrace, in/by the swimming pool, evening barbeque and late stargazing to exploring the surroundings.
The beach - almost 3 km by car - is an amazing send beach neighboring a protected pine forest, with few traditional Greek tavernas with basic and very tasty food. Clean water, child friendly. For good swimmers there is the option to go to a more rocky cost, with beautiful, a bit deeper water (even closer)
Organized beach, sports clubs a bit further - 15 min drive.
The villa is very comfortable and well organized , with large, beautiful rooms, fully equipped kitchen, terrace or balconies with see view for all bedrooms. All very clean.
The owners - fluent English speakers - are very nice and helpful. While around and easy reachable if needed, they are very discrete. You can expect nice welcome gesture such as fresh fruits from the real market place and some Greek sweets.
All together a perfect place for a group of friends/large family to enjoy being together without feeling it is a crowded place.
When leaving we all said that we think seriously to come back.
Last, not least - only 1 hour from the Athens airport/Athens downtown and it does not feel being close to the city. It is quite, not very busy, beautiful & clean sea.
Thank you Despina for a great experience!
Wow Ecaterina, thank you for your great review.. I never thought of mount Olympus.. Lol! You have all been excellent guests and very easy to get to know..
We would love to have you over again..
My regards to the folks.. Especially Giorgos Alexander.
Week in Schinias
Had a great stay. Views to die for, Sandy beach nearby, plenty of small tavernas to dine at. House is fully equipped and everything we needed. Tips on places and restaurants were spot on. Loved the new pool and enjoyed our late afternoons relaxing with that view. All furniture and especially the beds are very comfortable. Suggestions are you must have a car, be prepared for plenty of steps, and if coming from US change your money to euros either before you leave or in Athens. Would definitely recommend Stargazer Villa.
Incredible views and luxurious accommodations
The house lived up to its description. It is spacious and luxurious and the host and hostess made us feel welcome by stocking the refrigerator and cupboards with basic necessities such as coffee, tea, sugar, milk, water, and Greek delights such as yogurt, feta, and fresh fruits and vegetables.
There is no public transportation available so it is necessary to rent a car or hire a guide. We did both and couldn't have been happier.
Stavros Barbicas, who lives just down the road was the best guide one could have asked for. He is very knowledgeable not only about the sights to see, but about Greece's history, mythology, and also its current situation. Our days with him included not only trips but also enjoyable dinners at delightful tavernas - and usually lasted about 10 hours.
No other place like this one
The view alone was worth 5 stars. It's on the top of the hill with a 360 degree view, and it is absolutely breathtaking. The home is beautiful, comfortable and has all of the amenities you would need. The beach down the road is perfect with gently lapping waves and shallow waters (especially great for little kids and senior citizens) and there is a lovely place to get a coffee, hot feta dip, and hand cut french fries right on the beach. And for the more adventurous, there is also a cove nearby where you can dive off of the rocks and go snorkeling. We left Stargazer Villa with great memories that our family will keep with us for a long time. Highly recommended.
A beautiful home and a wonderful trip
My week at Stargazer Villa and my time in Schinias Beach was thoroughly relaxing and wonderful. The house has everything you need including a well-equipped kitchen. The views are spectacular, and a trip down the hill to the beach for a daily swim is a must. You do need a car. There you can claim your spot at the local taverna and have a delicious meal of local fish, wine, salad, etc. It's easy to get into Athens for the day either by bus or car and tour the sites, getting back to Schinias by dinnertime. All-in-all, just what I needed to unwind. And Despina and Stavros are the best hosts!
Beautiful Vacation Spot
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.
The villa is strategically located 30 minutes of the metro of Athens, within 30 minutes from the National Highway and 10-25 minutes to two ports which take you to multiple islands. There are many day trips one can take, eg. Corinth, Delphi, trekking in Evia, Myconos, Andros, Kea and several other islands.
Theme parks, such as the water park, scuba diving, the zoo, wineries, rope tree climbing, museums, night clubs are all within a 1 hour or less reach.
Our community is serene, beautiful, and tourist traps free. It is best suited for lovers of eco friendly environments, beautiful sandy beaches, rocky coast line with deep blue water, little taverns with great healthy Greek food and astounding views, the best kept secret of Attica.
