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.

                                                                                                    5 of 5

The Villa was immaculately cleaned prior to our arrival – Michael has furnished the place really tastefully (mostly with English fixtures and fittings by the looks of things). Space was the key to our choice of Stone Castle Villa, but it delivered much more than that – two brilliantly equipped kitchens and 3 or 4 spacious sitting rooms and reclining areas, including the pool surrounds. The lift was a bonus – given the amount of water and wine we managed to consume! Everybody who wanted their own bedroom was accommodated and Michael seems to be on a continual upgrade path with the beds and some of the other facilities. The accommodation would easily cope with a couple of sizeable families – where youngsters need their own space. Apart from the ‘singers’ who had some great performances both in the villa and outside, the Villa was really well sited for access to Athens, as well as the Marathon area and some very attractive beaches nearby. We were very pleased to have a couple of cars for dropping people off at the nearest beach which is a couple of miles away, and for shopping/touristy trips. The house is completely private on a sparsely-populated section of the coastline. The pool area is beautiful – including the charming cat, christened Homer, who had very sophisticated tastes (although he was feral, and ate anything including uncooked tomatoes!). Highly recommended – the welcome and hospitality of Michael was exceptional – we were all homesick the moment we left. We’ll be back!

The villa was more than we had expected and the expectation was set high to start with. The villa was everything it had been described as and more! The villa was outstanding and the views were spectacular. It was spacious, private and peaceful yet everything just a short drive away including beaches, supermarket and restaurants. There is a children's play area not far from the villa which my 4 year old enjoyed. The kitchen was very well equipped and catered to all our needs. The swimming pool was a good size and the children loved it. The villa was cleaned halfway through our stay including the bed linen and towels being changed. Tilemahos the owner was very accommodating and helped us with any questions we had including helping us to order a takeaway when we first arrived at the villa as it was late and we were tired. Only regret is that we did not book for longer! One of the nicest properties we have stayed in.

The villa is situated on the top of the plot of land and so a considerable amount of steps up from the garage. The view overcompensated for that by far plus I enjoyed the extra exercise! This was two weeks of absolute summer peace.The hosts were very helpful, and directed us to all the right places. The wifi connection was not your usual slow and dragging one in rental homes but coped well despite my high demands. I am an academic and used it for video-conferencing and streaming as well as my everyday browsing needs and was very happy throughout. I drive to Greece from London almost every year to see family and usually chose to stay closer to the centre. Big mistake! This year I could visit any place or person I wanted to and then get back and enjoy my holiday like I do when on an island or generally away from an urban centre. But Athens is only 35-40 minutes away depending on where you're going! Too convenient. And the morning, afternoon and evening coffee sessions, meals and dinners - and drinks/cocktails if that's your cup of tea - on that big wooden table at the front veranda with that view... I am now back and reminiscing of these moments. Cheers, I think I will see you guys again next year! Best David L.
