Just returned from an amazing week in Athens staying at this beautiful villa in the famous town of Marathon nearby. The weather was lovely, even at the end of October, and so we could make use of the pool and lovely gardens as well as the nearby beach which is the site where the Persians landed prior to the battle of marathon.
It is a short drive of approx 45 mins into the centre of Athens to explore the historic sites and the region is littered with other sites of historic significance and beautiful scenery.
The owners of the villa are very friendly and helpful to ensure everything is well and that you have a great stay.
I would definitely recommend and would stay again if returning to the region.
I have no doubts, it was really worth coming! Beautiful comfortable house with a big garden. Highly recommended for those who want to see Athens but do not like its noise. It takes only 15 minutes to walk to the local beach. My recommendation, however, is to go by car (also 15 minutes) to beautiful wild Schinias beach. Thank you Lida & Halldor!
