Make a holiday rental home or villa in Marathon, Greece your home away from home

The ancient town of Marathon, Greece has a long history that includes the Battle of Marathon in 490BC, and makes for an interesting base from which to discover the Attica region. The area is one of history, archaeological sites, outdoor activities and sandy beaches – with the added bonus of the famous city of Athens sitting in the heart of the region. Holiday rental accommodation in Marathon comes in the form of luxury villas with private swimming pools and spectacular ocean views.

Things to do in Marathon, Greece

The term ‘Marathon’ originates from the distance between the site of the Battle of Marathon and Athens – 26 miles. The town was the starting point for the marathon races at both the 1896 and 2004 Summer Olympics, and it also still has some of the sporting facilities from the 2004 Olympics. Water sports enthusiasts should head for the beach at Schinias, which is an excellent windsurfing spot and is home to the Olympic Rowing Centre.

Schinias beach is the main draw for visitors to Marathon, and is situated on the south-east side of the town, just a few short kilometres away. Schinias is regularly rated as one of the finest beaches in the Attica region, being long and sandy, and circled by pine forests, making for some excellent photographic opportunities.

The deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea make for excellent snorkelling and scuba diving, and it is possible to find many other secluded spots along the rocky coastline, that other tourists have missed. Sesi Beach is one such sandy spot, which has clear waters that are perfect for swimming.

luxurious serenity by the beach

5 of 5
WOW!!! Dear Maissa and Alex, On behalf of my entire family I would like to thank you again for your hospitality, availability, caring and the opportunity to enjoy this amazing house of yours! This property is ideal - it's serene with a beautiful view and it's equipped with everything a family needs (and much more). Peace of mind in a little piece of heaven ;) (The town is just minutes away (car needed)). We had such great time and we already miss it.. can't wait till next year!! Thank you again and all the best !!

A beautiful house on a stunning bay

5 of 5
This is a beautiful house in a glorious location. The agent Alex at Blue Window was a joy to deal with, and the owner Eirini and here daughter Ariadni were welcoming, informative and helpful hosts from start to finish. It really was everything we expected – and more – and we'd have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. The location and surroundings made for a perfect holiday... the fantastic beach at the end of the garden (literally), nearby Porto Buffalo with its quaint and welcoming tavernas, but most of all the wonderful sense of solitude and calm. We have a family 'policy' of never visiting the same destination twice, but I have a feeling that might be tested at some point! Best wishes from Cambridge, UK, Tim and Rebecca Gillett
