Overview

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.

A-MA-ZING, especially for families

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Villa Eleni with my wife + 2 young daughters. Read on for detail if you wish, but my review does not include even minor recommendations. This place is incredible.

Location = 5 stars!

10 min. drive from the Temple of Poseidon at Sounio. 10-15 min. walk from main village (main square, 2 bakeries, 4-5 restaurants, an espresso bar, butcher, kids' playground, church, etc). Bonus - only a 20-30 min. walk (or a 1.5 min. drive) from either of 2 nearby beaches (our favourite was Xapaka/Haraka). Other bonus - no stray dogs!

House + layout = 5 stars!

This house could easily be in a magazine. Huge, well-equipped kitchen, all appliances/clothes washing machine are German (Miele). House is very roomy, well-designed open layout, multiple large patios with excellent views for dining/sitting/relaxing. Thick marble flooring + very well constructed bedrooms means footsteps won't wake sleeping children, etc. Even the floor drains are marble! Everything in this house is meticulously thought-out and well-designed - including the massive pool and backyard landscaping.

Connectivity + entertainment = 5 stars!

Internet connection is strong & fast. Dozens of Greek and international satellite channels available. Lots of electrical outlets for charging devices. Huge microfibre couches for napping/tv watching/reading/entertaining/etc.

Night time safety = 5 stars!

First of all, we never felt unsafe for one second walking around at night or in to the village. Everybody is friendly, no stray dogs were spotted (a rarity in Greece these days), and it's so peaceful at night, you can literally hear the ferry boats' engines churning as they pass by your patios. But any village that is primarily full during summer weekends is bound to have some bad things happen now and again. As mentioned above, everything has been thought out extremely well. Huge automatic gate provides a secured entrance to the property, which is surrounded by a very solid wall/fence combo. Windows seem to be double-thickness, and are bolstered by metal shutters that raise and lower with the turn of a switch. The front door is basically a bank vault door, you can even see who's knocking with a video screen right beside the door handle!

The owners = 10 stars!

Emails/phone call are answered promptly, everyone is super friendly and made sure to let us know they were available for questions any time. They were so nice to my family, I wanted to invite them to have dinner with us - at their own house!

Great place, great views, great people!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place away from the "touristy areas". The house was beautiful with all the amenities you could want (Sauna shower, bathroom for each room, plenty of beds, fully stocked kitchen with plates, silverware, pots, pans, coffee pot, blender, tea kettle, and anything else you could think of) to keep you relaxed and enjoying yourself.

The owners, Zoey and Spayros, were outstanding hosts! The provided any information you could want/need to help you enjoy. They are very friendly and open. They were key in providing information about the area, attractions, towns and even culture!

This place is only about 45 minutes from the Athens Int'l Airport or 1 hour from Athens proper (tourist attractions). It is convenient enough to drive this short distance for a day trip and be back home in the quiet serenity of the Aegean Sea. The grounds are well taken care of the house is clean and comfortable and I highly recommend this place. From start to finish Eleni was very helpful with booking and understanding and then her parents greet you at the house and provide all the information you need. Just a GREAT way to get away with the family and/or friends!

Thanks Eleni, Zoey and Spayros!

Absolutely fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

We arrived Friday afternoon together with my wife and two kids. The guidance provided by Elena was helpful and there were no problem finding the property. We did not expect the warm welcome by Spyros and Zoe, they were very helpful and kind giving the tour around and explaining details of the villa. The property itself is fantastic and has everything one could wish. Everything worked fine and maintained to a good condition and what is the most important thing I can say is that the house has soul which is not the case for the most of commercial properties. Small details make real difference! The location itself is easily accessible from Athenes airport, the city tour is convenient and there are some nice taverns in Legrena village. The closest supermarket we did our shopping is in Lavrio. I definitely would recommend this villa not only to those who ask for but to my best friends, too. Unfortunately this place has one major disadvantage ... the holidays are over too soon here which means I would come again

Outstanding

  • 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.
