We have been holidaying in villas with pools for 20 years and this beautiful villa on the outskirts of Athens is now our favourite.
Villa Abelos has all the things you would expect for a rental of this price. Beautiful pool, a view of the sea, close to the beach, great surrounding amenities and easy access to Athens. But it was the things you did not expect that made our stay very special.
Terrace dining for breakfast and a different one for dinner. Cooking utensils and appliances that made our well stocked kitchen at home look sparse. A pool barbecue area with a separate fully functioning kitchen attached. Furnishings and decorating that were truly beautiful. So much space that 7 people could live together and yet have their own privacy. I could go on, but the best thing is to come and see for yourself.
But the true magic was Christina herself. A wonderful host to whom we are so grateful for letting us rent her amazing home. A personal greeting at 4am when we arrived severely delayed, emergency grocery shopping so we were stocked up when we woke next morning. Booking super restaurants in the local area and Athens and joining us with her husband Nik for our Barbecue with some amazing Greek cuisine.
We were genuinely sad to leave but even more excited to return. A very special place, thank you Christina

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.
