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.
Vicki is very thoughtful and we arrived to all of the necessities before choosing which one of the two shops to visit.
The apartment is one of two, it truly is home from home with two good sized bedrooms, a bathroom and kitchen and living room. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, cooking pots, etc there may not be a microwave but who will use one here. What there is here is a juicer and with orange trees in the garden and Vicki's permission to pick resulted in the freshest orange juice. A lovely home,not a house and now will lead me to consider homeaway for future stays. Vicki's lovely accommodation is just 5 mins from the dolce Riviera hotel complex, 10 mins to beach, 15 mins to vravorona, and 45 mins walking on road to Artemis temple and museum. Take a bus from the stop 1 minute away, tickets from ok supermarket and you can explore the local area, Saint Nicholas worth a visit, you can even catch a bus to Athens, an hour away.we didn't test it as we arrived from Athens. A perfect place for a longer stay?
