We are a young couple in our 40s and still blooming. Rosa works as a translator and is fluent both in English and Italian. Stavros, after a B.Sc, an M.B.A. and a M.Sc. In Marketing at the Universities of Lancaster and UMIST in England, and 15 years of very active service as an export sales manager for some of the biggest wine companies in Greece, now spends more time with his family, owning a taxi service and providing his services as a tour and a trekking guide. We have a young daughter, Danae, age 12, who enjoys swimming in the gently sloping, shallow beach of Schinias, from mid April, up to (occasionally) beginning of December!
Why Rosa chose Athens
Indulge yourself in our picturesque home directly above the Aegean Sea. Enjoy the cool waters of our nearby sandy beach. Drink your chilled daiquiri and relax in our veranda with bird-eye, Santorini-like views.
What makes this villa unique
-WHAT TO DO DURING OUR STAY? PLACES TO SEE
That is totally up to you. You could enjoy the sea and spend the day in oriental laziness, or you could try some of the various water activities (including water surfing and jet ski), offered in the crystal clear waters of Schinias Beach.
There is always the possibility of visiting nearby Marathon historic site, the archaeological site of Ramnous and the Marathon Museum, having Stavros as your personal guide.
You can spend the entire day in Athens, visiting Acropolis, the Archaeological Museum, picturesque Plaka with its numerous taverns, Lycabetus Hill for an overwhelming view of the city and so many more.
For short tours around Athens, there is the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion, with its unique sunset, the Kutuki cave at mount Hymetus, the Temple of Artemis at Vravrona.
Where Do We Dine?
There are many fish and grilled meat taverns at a 3 minutes drive from our house, where you can enjoy excellent food at the edge of the sea, feeling the soft sand under your bare feet. At Nea Makri you can dine in a vast variety of restaurants. You also have the possibility of ordering pizza delivered at home, or you can ask Rosa to cook for you her famous, irresistible moussaka!
Cinemas, beach bars and clubs at a 3-20 minute drive, or a quiet stroll along the little harbor of Nea Makri. That is, provided there is no full moon, because, in that case, you will most certainly prefer to enjoy your drink in our candle lit veranda.
What to Pack
Only your bathing suits, clothing, personal items, sunscreen lotion and dozens of films. We’ll provide linen and towels, road maps, isothermal bags to keep your fruit cold, snorkeling gear for your dives. If you are trekking oriented, please bring a pair of sturdy shoes and a lot of anticipation!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Remember us? You're favorite taxi clients, I'm sure!
Well, you were definitely our favorite taxi driver,and we want to thank you for all your help. It was really fun getting to know you and our trip was much richer from the time we spent with you. We meant it when we said that you are welcome to visit us in Colorado! We have great skiing! Hope you and your family are doing well. Tell Danai (sp?) hi from Annabelle! Thanks again.
