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.

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.

Perfect villa for family holiday

5 of 5
We were a group of 15, away for a family celebration. The villa was perfect. The two wings and guest house gave plenty of space for everyone to spread out while also having enough large communal areas for everyone to gather. The villa really is like a small stone castle, full of character and charm. Michael was very accommodating and went out of his way to make sure our stay was ejnoyable. He was easily contactable and was able to give great advice on what to do in the area and what would be open (we were away over Easter). If you want to get away as a group and spend time in a tranquil part of Greece then this villa is perfect.
