- english, french, spanish, greek
We are a big international family distributed all over the world. We love travelling, however, what we enjoy most is when we can get all together at this house to enjoy family life: kids running around, a glass of ouzo and some homemade mezedes (with vegetables grown in our own garden) in hand, enjoying the view of the sea. We like meeting new people and guests are always welcomed in our house. We love Greece and we will do all that we possibly can to ensure an enjoyable stay for you so that afterwards you can say the same.
Socratis purchased this Villa in 1970
Why Socratis chose Daskalio
The stunning, stone and wood villa, nestled on the seaside slopes, was constructed in the early 70’s. One can immediately see the love and attention put in every detail by my parents and their architect friends.The house itself is decorated with authentic antiques that give it its special character. It is located in a small very picturesque bay that offers excellent views over the Aegean Sea. The property located at the end of the road, assures utmost discretion and tranquillity for any ideal vacation close to Athens.
What makes this Villa unique
The house with a 7 m vaulted ceiling benefits from a large interior communal areas connected to outside terraces is the ideal place to relax after a day at the seaside. The exposure to sunrise and sunset provides exceptional light and perspective. What makes this property actually unique is its front terrace. I love watching the moon rising directly from the sea in front of the house or being able to see the Greek islands in the horizon in the morning. I prefer the rocky quiet beach right below the property but if one wishes there are 2 sandy beaches, at about 10-15 minute walk. On the way one can enjoy fresh fish and other mezedes in one of the tavernas next to the sea. What more can one ask for so close to Athens?

A Wonderful Stay
We all had a wonderful time at Socratis' stunning villa. There was everything we could have needed, the kitchen was so complete. Our hosts had even left us fresh vegetables and tomatoes straight from the garden. We were invited to make use of the fresh herb garden for our cooking. On top of all that, Socratis was incredibly easy to get hold of and was incredibly accommodating. All of our group had such a fantastic time we were sad to have to leave.
we were 3 families about 12 people at this amazing villa. the moment we came the house owner mr leartes welcomed us with a big smile and more then that we found in the kitchen some grocery products that mr leartes bout for us with his kindness .once u enter the area u will be amazed from the amazing view .the villa its self is amazing place very clean and well maintained u will have everything u need at the villa, well equipped kitchen, BBQ and more. u have amazing garden with beautiful swimming pool and tennis court
the villa located in amazing area and very close to Athena so its very easy to travel around
the house owners are more then generous for every need they immediately responsed
and even when we asked to stay a few hours more they answer was "u can stay as long as u need.
we were very grateful for every thing and we highly recommended for this amazing place and the amazing family
Fabulous villa in rural location
Socrates was brilliant at communicating over booking of his villa. It is their ancestral home and very well looked after with beautiful furnishings and gardens. The maid who came twice during the week is brilliant and ensured we had no problems. The view from the terrace is spectacular across the bay and lovely to sit on to watch the sunset. We arrived on a Sunday and as local shops were closed the owners had left us a comprehensive starter pack which was amazing! We teamed this with a trip to Athens which was also fantastic and less than an hour away. We also visited Poseidon's temple which was well worth the short drive. The local tavernas are mainly fish based- but amazing fresh fish!
Thank you for your nice comments. It was a pleasure to have you as guests. Right from the start you made your special requests and questions easy to address. All of your group paid attention to the house rules on the first day and kept to them during the stay. The group was very tidy, clean (despite the increased number of teenagers!) and very well behaved. Hope to host you in the future.
Perfect villa for a bigger group
Our group of 6 adults + 9 kids enjoyed a lovely week in Daskalio. The villa fulfilled and exceeded our expectations with nice and personal architecture, excellent views and a couple of good tavernas in walking distance. Our wishes regarding baby bed and high chair were considered, and the welcome was very friendly. The owner had a contact to a local chef, who then came to cook for us one night.
Villa Daskaleio can be highly recommended in all aspects.
