Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Space 3,767 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

3-story Villa, 45 minutes from Athens, yet, feels like being on a Greek ISLAND!

Villa Eleni is situated at the top of a hill, 400 meters (0.24 miles) from the Legrena beach.

Legrena is the first village from the world-famous ancient Temple of Poseidon, the God of the Sea, at Sounio.

Legrena is an ideal base from where you can explore the city of Athens, the Parthenon, the islands via Ferryboat from the ports of Lavrio or Rafina or via a private boat that you can rent from the nearby Olympic Marina.

The surroundings of the property are olive groves, and a few other beautiful summer houses. Located at a no-outlet street, nothing interrupts this house's tranquility, serenity and privacy.

The property consists of:

1. The main house, 350 sq. m, or 3,770 sq. feet

2. 4,125 sq. m or 44,401 sq. feet of land with palms, fruit trees, decorative plants

3. Covered parking for 3 cars

4. Covered dog kennels

The main house consists of 3 floors. The main entrance is at the middle floor. There is also a second entrance at the first floor which gives the lower house an absolute privacy.

VILLA ELENI - Breathtaking views of most gorgeous beach of Athens
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews


  • 5 of 5

We had really a great time there. Outstanding house and place. Very enjoyable area which gave us options to relax, to have fun, hiking and visiting antique places. The owners are great and very helpful. The pool is awesome, the house is equipped with everything you need. Clear recommendation, as the house also delivers opportunity for larger families to come together and give everybody as well their own space.

Vacation Get Away in Dream Destination Greece

  • 5 of 5

Villa Elleni is a wonderful place that is situated in a prime location. The views are breathtaking and the accommodations are 5 star. The listing accurately describes the location. The property is immaculate. The pool and outdoor kitchen are but a few of the perks for an enjoyable and memorable family vacation. Our family spent days at the beach or touring Athens and Delphi and came back to our wonderful home and relaxed by the poolside while the kids swam. The older kids where close to disco's which afforded them nightlife.

The owner/managers are amazing, they answered our every question. Their information was timely and reliable. I not only would recommend this property to others but I look forward to booking it again when time allows.

Spacious Villa, amazing views, cooling breezes

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 12 days in June. Everything was better than expected - from the reservation process, to the welcome by the owning family, to the villa itself, the pool, the view across the Aegean Sea, and the cooling breezes each day.

Five star holiday at a five star villa. The owing family were there to welcome us and show us around the area with recommendations on grocery shopping, tavernas, beaches etc. This is a very well equipped villa. Cool marble floors and amazing sea views. You can catch the sun at different times of the day on different balconies. Pool is very clean - filtered/cleaned daily. The grounds are also maintained regularly.

We alternated day trips with rest days in the pool or at the beach.

If you want the resort life, this area is not for you. If you want to relax, see the real Greece, meet friendly local people, and have access to interesting day trips - this is a great place to stay.

Easy 45 min drive from the airport. Small, quiet (except weekends) but good local beaches nearby. Catch sunset at the Temple of Poseidon only 5 mins away. Athens is an easy day trip. Drive 45 mins to the Metro stop (Elliniko - Line 2). Park at the A-B supermarket, then 20 mins on the metro to Akropoli. Try a day trip to Kea (Tzia) from the nearby port of Lavrio. We loved it. We also did a day trip to ancient Corinth and Epidavros, and another day trip to Delphi.

If the opportunity arises - would definitely stay there again.

Fantasic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay - a little hard to find in the dark, but we got there in the end with help from the owners. They were very welcoming, and provided a guided tour of Legrena, with tips on the best local tavernas and where to shop. The villa is very spacious, has a well-equipped kitchen, including the obligatory frapee maker and an ice machine, and a living room with amazing views over the sea. The pool is great, although very deep for the most part. Plenty of bathrooms, air conditioned bedrooms, and well located for a day trip to Athens, and a few minutes away from the Temple of Poseidon. All in all, we had a great time, and would certainly consider coming back.

Best vacation accommodation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Super villa with very large infinity pool overlooking the Aegean Sea. Very comfortable, inviting property. In the verandas of the Villa we had the most romantic evenings of our lives. Our kids had a blast in the pool and beautiful garden. At the beaches that surround Villa Eleni, there are many shallow areas that are paradise for the little ones. The owners treated us like family. My wife and I had a great break from our routine. We recommend it to everyone and we will certainly go back with friends.
