About Manos

I grew up in Athens and relocated abroad after College... it was always my dream to built a high quality complex in Sxinia beach as it is my favorite area in Athens but yet in an island type setting

Manos purchased this villa in 2004

Why Manos chose Attica

I hired Michalis Fotiadis as the architect to design this complex once i found the land i was looking for... Michalis is a very talented Architect who also designed the new Acropolis museum in Athens... We are very proud of Amalia Residences, built primarily for our family use!

Superb chill out zone

  • 5 of 5

This is a 5 star villa in every way. Great hosts who were on hand whenever we needed them.

The villa and pool were both meticulously clean and all fixtures and fittings of a high standard. The welcome pack of groceries was the most comprehensive I've ever had in any villa.

This is a beautiful peaceful location, we say wild tortoises almost every day. The sea was only a few metres away and just beautiful for family swims.

Local restaurants were basic but lovely. The owner of one even ran us home at the end of the night and every time we went there his wife gave us a dozen free range eggs! It's just that kind of place!

I was with my family of 4 children all over 19 yrs of age and we had a wonderful time. The place seems just so off grid and yet you can be in the centre of Athens within an hour.

I'd highly recommend this location to anyone.

A lovely location in a beautiful townhouse/villa in a peaceful part of Greece...

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to Greece and we really enjoyed our stay there. The place where we stayed, near Schinias beach, was a very spacious 5 bedroom, 2 bathrooms villa/townhouse in a quiet & peaceful part of Greece but still not far to the capital. From the villa the views of the mountains and nearby island was breath-taking. There is also a lovely shared swimming pool which my children really enjoyed using. They have never stayed in a place with a swimming pool before so it was very exciting for them. And within a short walk down from the villa there is a rocky beach with beautifully clear waters where we were able to snorkel & watch the little fishes swimming everywhere.

We were made very welcome from Rosa who managed the place. She even came to find us when we got lost in the car on the way to the villa!! Her husband, Stavros, does special tours so we hired him for the day to take us across by ferry to a remote place on an island where we were able to swim under a beautiful natural waterfall and enjoy the waves of a remote beach location used mainly by campers. By end of day he took us to a very local greek tavern where we were able to try out some fantastic local delicacies (such as goat stew) which were amazing.

Overall, everyone had a wonderful & memorable experience in Greece and of the warm hospitality of the Greek locals. My only advice is to make sure you hire a car as this is essential for getting around various places. To get to the capital city, it is advisable to park the car in Pallini & take the train to the Acropolis or Syntagma Square. I was a little hesitant about driving in Greece but it was very easy but make sure you have a satnav device available at all times. We hired one at the car rental.

The world may be a big place but we most definitely hope to return to Greece again one day.

Great stay at Amalia Residences

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at Amalia Residences this summer and we really enjoyed it. The architecture is modern yet it draws from the Mediterranean landscape and colors. The residences are clean and well maintained. There is an amazing view of the Aegean sea.

The kids enjoyed the swimming pool and the close beaches. One advantage of this location is that it is relatively close to Athens and makes day trips to the city convenient.

A great thank you to Manos, Rosa, and Mary for the great service and the friendly atmosphere. We highly recommend this place.

The Bennington family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, the apartment is beautiful and has everything that you could want. The pool is great, and for us only being 5 minutes from rocky cove where we could snorkel was ideal.

Rosa and Manos looked after us incredibly well, we recommend that you listen to their advice on places to eat, we felt like we were part of their extended family for the short time were were there.

Manos took us on a tour which was really entertaining, he's full of warmth and intelligence.and knows everyone, of course.

I hesitate to recommend it,because we want it all to ourselves. We will be back.

Spectacular Waterfront Property w/Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

What can I say!? Our stay at these Marathon Villa Rentals was nothing short of one of the most fantastic vacations of our lives. It was the perfect escape from our every day lives, and a welcome relief from the fast paced world of Athens. That being said, it was so close to Athens that we were able to pop over there for a day trip!

Clean, open floor plan, great kitchen, gorgeous pool and views. No complaints. We will definitely be back. Thanks again for an amazing time.
