Villa Ioanna is definitely an experience to be lived!
- english, german, greek
Why Ioanna chose Kropia
we bought the land and built the villa with my husband, who is German descent, mainly because we were captured by its beauty. We had been looking for a few years before we found out the ideal place for us. The warm and dry climate besides the fact that it combines sea and mountain, played a cardinal role in our decision. Furthermore, we have the feeling of living in a village which is also near the center of Athens, ten minutes from the international airport of Athens and close to the market, banks, hospital. It was also the ideal place to bring up our three children, Natalie, Nickole and Alexis.

An amazing and spacious house near Athens
As a group of 4 families we have spent 4 days here. The villa is ideally located, not far from the airport, beaches and Athens. There are plenty of markets and tavernas nearby. The house owners are very friendly and always ready to help.
Thank you so much for the nice words! It was lovely to host you in Villa Ioanna! You were all amazing guests!
Looking forward to see you again!
Relaxing, fun and homely villa with great hosts
This was perfect for our three families as the villa is made up of three apartments, although we mainly socialised together in the main villa and outdoors. The pool area is gorgeous, the kids aged 2-11 spent hours in the pool, we loved the garden with mature plants which gave shade and the outdoor kitchen was fabulous for bbqing and eating together. The veranda was also a lovely place to hang out. We received a lovely welcome, Ioanna was very helpful before and during our stay and we got to taste her amazing Greek cooking and figs and grapes from the garden. The villa was well equipped for cooking and even had a mixer which came in handy for cocktail making. The kids loved that there was a dog around. What we really loved was that this villa feels like a home, sometimes arriving at a villa they can feel a bit empty - we felt at home instantly. We enjoyed a trip to the Voulagmenis Lake and the Temple of Poseidon and some of us did Athens before arriving at the villa. So close to the airport and lots of sandy beaches with shallow water great for kids - great for combining sightseeing and a beach/villa holiday.
An oasis of calm and relaxation
I might have overstated the calm and relaxation because there were 17 members of our family all staying for a fortnight and we had a lot of fun but the Villa and grounds are beautifully relaxing. The villa is laid out into three apartments over two floors but we took the whole place. Luckily, the layout worked perfectly for us, with parents and children being able to have their own space as well as the communal areas upstairs and outside. I think you would struggle here if you didn't have a car but there are food shops, chemists, petrol station and a few tavernas within 5 minutes drive of the Villa. There are at least 6 beaches within a 15 minute drive. It's 7 minutes to the nearest beach and Mojito beach is a similar distance. That is lovely. If you feel adventurous, there are several beaches on the other side of the peninsular, 30 minutes or so away. We recommend Coco loco beach. We visited Athens of course. Drive to the station at Elleniko and it is a few stops to Akropoli. We went to the Temple of Poseidon and the amphitheatre 12 minutes away from that. We have travelled to many Greek islands and have always found Greek people to be friendly and welcoming. This was our first proper trip to the mainland and our experience was just as welcoming. The villa's owners, Ioanna and her husband live on the top floor of the villa. Whilst we rarely saw them during the days - they and their family came and went through the entrance on the other side of the property from the pool, they could not be more welcoming and Ioanna, bless her prepared a fantastic moussaka for us all when we arrived. We had to get the recipe. A few other points, the pool is just as lovely as it looks in the pictures and the garden was fab for our wildlife loving family. We saw praying mantis, dozens of butterflies, geckos and there is a Dragonfly who patrols the pool from time to time. There was also a family of Barn Swallows who visited the pool for drinks sporadically throughout the day. We had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend a visit.
