About the property

Beachfront Studios for relaxation & close to most major archaeological sites

*************** Please note that the price given is for 2 ADULTS ONLY. To receive the correct quote for more than two guests please message the owner **************

Artistically decorated beachfront Villa offers 3 studios with their own WC/shower & kitchen for relaxing holidays - on this unspoilt bay - that combine sea & mountain - close to all local amenities. The Villa is literally located a few meters from the most stunning sea of whole Attica region!!!

Psatha Villa is an ideal destination for families, couples or group of friends as it offers a range of options and local activities.

You can enjoy stunning views of the bay and for those who are more adventurous paragliding and climbing is another option.

Psatha region has a vast choice of beaches with crystal clear waters and sheltered bays that provide opportunities for swimming and relaxing under the Grecian sun.

Psatha area info (activities, historical sites etc)

- Kithaironas mountain is the most popular place for paragliding in Greece which provides views of Psatha, Porto Germeno (which is a beach resort) on one side and Plataies on the other side (which is an ancient town at north of Kithairona near Asopos river where the most significant battle took place in 479 b.c. between the Greeks and the Persians with an overwhelming victory of the Greeks).

- Straying from the beaten truck of Psatha can lead you up the mountain covered with pine trees and beautiful slopes for mountain biking and climbing or simply just for walking. Continuing further up the road takes you to another ideal place for paragliding called Kantili.

- After a long day there is a choice of traditional tavernas where you can enjoy the sunset with a variety of fresh sea food and local wine.

Info on Athens & Piraeus major port

- Athens is very close. Many of the major historic sites like Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum could be visited. Plaka the old town of Athens under the Acropolis is excellent night life choice.

- Piraeus Port is even closer and by catching the ferry, many beautiful islands could be visited for either daily excursions or longer.(Hydra, Aegina, Agistri, Spetses, Paros, Mykonos, Santorini etc.)

About The Owner

Hello my name is Sophie and my husband and I welcome you all to our stunning and tranquil property by the beach only an hour drive from Athens.

I am an artist and my husband a solicitor who like to spend our time between Greece and UK and who like to travel to warmer destinations during the winter season. Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries.

See you soon.

Why The Owner chose Mandra Idillia

Right on the beachfront. Great for total relaxation on a massive garden with pine trees. Wonderful sunset views of the coast from our Villa. Ideally located an hour or so away from Athens and a short trip away from major archaeological sites. Combines both sea and mountain for long walks.

Great for families with young children due to the accessibility and distance to and from the beach.

Great for romantic getaway or for friends as the location is unspoilt with gorgeous sea views and stunning sunsets and offers a choice of nearby trips to local villages on the coast or up in the mountains.

What makes this villa unique

Stunning sunsets. Tavernas right on the beach with fresh fish and locally sourced meat.

Distance from the sea, as the property is on the beachfront.

Very close to Athens city centre as is only 65klm away.

Very close to Athens airport, only 95klm away.

Close to most major archaeological sites.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The service provided by the owner was exemplary. Sofia provided a pick up service from the airport and returned me to Athens for the second leg of my trip. Amazing breakfasts were provided at a time of my choice and information given on neighboring areas to visit. For a small cost Sofia provided me with transport to other areas with information given with pride and passion.

The property was spotlessly clean, quirky, with lots of interesting items dotted around the house. A real collection of artifacts.Excellent use has been made of space so whilst it is not very big, everything you need is there. Bed was very comfortable and all windows covered with mosquito blinds. There was a large patio where breakfast could be taken, in or out of the sun, depending on your choice. This overlooked a large private garden, with locking gate through which a car can be parked and very safe for children to run around. Whilst the sun is there all day there are many areas you can choose to sit and take the shade under the many Pine trees. Lovely. Also wonderful place to sit in the evening with only the sound of the waves or the breeze through the pines.

The beach is just outside the garden gate with no traffic passing to speak of. You can take your morning coffee there and take in the clear air or swim in the very clean clear waters of the Corinthian bay. There is a promenade along the pebble beach - 2k long where there are 4/5 places to stop for a drink and eat, depending on the season. Also 2 Tavernas and a restaurant in the other direction and on the beach. All are within minutes walking distance. However if you intend to cook meals you may want to shop in a supermarket outwith Psatha in advance. There is a small shop which opens for a short part of the day and is fine for little bits and pieces. It would be worth checking with the owner which facilities are available before traveling. In the neighboring village of Alepochori there are a few more shops and a pharmacy. 50 minutes strolling time for me though not in a hurry.

Wifi was available free at the taverna just along the beach.

I would highly recommend this accommodation for solo, group and family groups.

A peaceful idyll on a perfect beach!

  • 5 of 5

Sofia was a wonderful host - helpful, warm and generous. This is an enchanting, individual property next to (30 yards away!) the most beautiful beach with the best swimming we've found anywhere - crystal clear waters set in spectacular scenery and so peaceful. (Soft shingle which shelves away quickly so not so good for the very young) And the sunsets over the Gulf of Corinth are stunning. All very relaxing.

Only two small criticisms - the beds were very hard and the cooking facilities very basic ( but the Cavo Doro 100 yards up the beach served good food in huge portions at a reasonable price)

Psatha is only an hour and a half drive from Athens yet feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of the better known tourist spots.

We will return - loved it!

Excellent !!! Sofiya's studio is a peaceful, clean and welcoming place with wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with 4 children (8,6,4,1) and we looked for a place to spend a week in Greece. We searched for a place to be (very) close to the sea with good sea shore for the kids to play, with an authentic Greece village nearby and especially a place to charge us with good energies.

Sofiya's studio is amazing. The facility is welcoming, clean, well maintained, with good energies, modestly decorated and equipped.

Sofia herself is welcoming, positive and energetic. She helped us in many ways including recommendations for nearby tours.

The sea shore is 50 meters from the gate and what a sea shore !!!! the water are crystal clear, the shore is made of small, colorful, rounded stones with low angle slope to the water and it's about 2000 meter length!

During the week the sea is all yours, you can find yourself as the only person on the beach! and during the weekend you can enjoy the warm (but not too crowded) company of the Greece peoples.

We made 50% of our meals in the equipped (yet modest) kitchen and enjoyed the rest of the meals in the Tabernas of Psasha where you can find fresh and diverse food. There is a mini-market about 200 meters from the studio where you can buy variety of products but if you intend to cook yourself it's recommended to visit AB at Megara . There is a Bakery in Alepachory which makes great bread and sweets.

We enjoyed our vacation very much and we recommend Sofiya's studio wholeheartedly.

Sincerely.

Amit, Yishai and the kids ..... :-)

Very nice property, right on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We would recommend this to anyone in search of accommodation close to the beach. The property is fenced off and has lots of space for activities like badminton etc. Sunbeds readily available for the ones who preferred to lay reading under a tree. The room itself was clean and well kept with all expected amenities, although maybe a bit small to accommodate a family of five where the height of some members are fast approaching 2 meters...

The landlady, Sofia, made us feel very welcome during our stay and gave us several good tips on trips and nearby restaurants.

The Psatha beach seems to be a popular weekend retreat among Atheneans so it could get quite busy on Saturday and Sunday, but the rest of the week was all peace and quiet. It is quite remarkable to find such a quiet spot within just one hour drive from Athens.

Having a car is recommend as the best restaurant in the area is a 15 min. drive away in Kato Alepochori. The local ones in Psatha were average at best. Also, taking a trip to the inland village of Villa is highly recommended as it has lots of restaurants along its cozy pedestrian street.

Further pros: Mini market just around the corner covers the daily need for groceries and fresh bread.

Any cons? Well, the underwater sealife was surprisingly dull, even for Greece, so snorkling was a bit boring.

Sehr gastfreundlich und wirklich direkt am Strand!

Auch Ende Oktober toll! An Sonnentagen kann man noch baden. Ansonsten kann in den umliegenden Bergen herrlich gewandert werden.

If you decide not to hire a car please let us know and for a small petrol charge we can arrange to do the shopping for you!!!

A bit more about local places of interest:

- Kithaironas mountain is the most popular place for paragliding in Greece which provides views of Psatha, Porto Germeno (which is a beach resort) on one side and Plataies on the other side (which is an ancient town at north of Kithairona near Asopos river where the most significant battle took place in 479 b.c. between the Greeks and the Persians with an overwhelming victory of the Greeks).

- Straying from the beaten track of Psatha can lead you up the mountain covered with pine trees and beautiful slopes for mountain biking and climbing or simply just for walking. Continuing further up the road takes you to another ideal place for paragliding called Kantili.

- After a long day there is a choice of traditional tavernas where you can enjoy the sunset with a variety of fresh seafood and local wine. But if you are after some local free range goat or lamb chops then Villia village - only 25min drive up in the mountains - is the place to be. Remember to purchase some homemade local sausages and cheeses too. Truly delicious.
