The most beautiful place we have ever seen

  • 5 of 5

I just cannot express myself enough as soon as we arrived we immediately realized the magnificence of this place. My wife and I could not believe our own eyes it is the most beautiful place we have ever seen. When we arrived, the owner was waiting on us he was very accommodating and explained the history of the property with a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean Sea. Great restaurants and shops five minutes away with friendly people at every place visited. We could not have ask for a more perfect vacation and we defiantly will go back again next year.

A slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 just spent an absolutely wonderful week at Villa Sounio. I would not have changed a thing. The view, the weather, the history, the area, the food, the people, the owners, and the caretakers of the property. We felt like we were staying with family (family that we like). The house is stunning and the views are simply breathtaking. Although we had several days with planned activities, we also spent several quiet days just enjoying the pool, the view, the semi private lake access. One of the owners, Alex helped us many times with ordering food, recommending restaurants and even dealing with the rental car company when our car broke down. Adonis, who is one of the property caretaker, drove us over an hour to the port to catch our ferry when the rental car broke down and also picked us up again.

The area provides for easy access to restaurants, bakeries, ports for renting or chartering boats, simple shopping a and the the Temple of Poseidon (which is stunning). The area is also not too far from visiting Athens or catching the ferry to one of the Islands (Hydra is a must see).

Reading the other reviews, it is clear that we are not the only ones with these opinions. I cannot compliment this Villa and the owners enough. We certainly hope to come back. Thank you for everything.

Fantastic pool, outdoor space and views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in the villa and had a fabulously relaxing time. The villa is really all about the outdoor space - which is hard to fault. The kids (11&9) were amply entertained by the pool, diving board and popping down for a dip in the sea (with us!). The house is well equipped though quite functional but is comfortable and with charm. Bathrooms fine, but perhaps a little outdated. We appreciated the provision of washing up detergents etc along with basic kitchen ingredients - not that we did much cooking. Good tavernas close by and decent supermarkets in Lavrio along with proximity to Athens and local sights make this a nice easy holiday. On site caretakers Antoni and Miranda are lovely, helpful and unobtrusive and we communicated v well mainly in sign language! We also met one of the owners who is clearly passionate about the work they have done to revive this old house. One final note, the directions when you receive them seem a little vague (series of maps and sat nav/street view pictures) but work perfectly! We hope to return ...

Fantastic location with an amazing swimming pool and easy access to the sea

  • 4 of 5

Spent two very enjoyable and relaxing weeks at this location. House would benefit from some modernisation but is perfectly functional for a holiday focused on the outdoors. Pool area is first class.

Stunning villa, very well looked after, superb seaside location

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in this villa with our boys aged 11 and 14 and all enjoyed it greatly. The location is stunning and the exterior of the villa unmatched, including the largest private pool I have ever seen. The pool was kept in perfect condition and swimming in it while looking over the Aegean was a great pleasure. We also enjoyed swimming and snorkeling off the rocks below the villa. Indoors is not huge but very adequate, with very well equipped kitchen, barbecue and the great covered external area where we often sat. Access to very good tavernas, Sounio temple and ancient mine remnants make this a great location.

1) In a 2 km distance from the residence , there is the fabulous temple of Poseidon. The temple of Poseidon at Sounion is one of the most important sanctuaries in Attica. Sporadic finds point to the conclusion that the site was inhabited in the prehistoric period. "Sounion Hiron" (temple of Sounion) is first mentioned in the Odyssey, as the place where Menelaos stopped during his return from Troy to bury his helmsman, Phrontes Onetorides. The finds of the 7th century B.C. are numerous and proove the existence of organized cult on two points of the promontory: at the southern edge where the temenos of Poseidon was situated, and about 500 m. to the NE of it, where the sanctuary of Athena was established.

2) A couple kilometre away from the residence there is a perfect place for hiking, cycling or just admiring the greek nature. That is the Sounio National Park. The National Park of Sounio was founded in 1971. It lies on the southeastern edge of Attica, in the area which is commonly called Laureotiki and ends up at the cape of Sounio. It is comprised of about 4,000 hectares, of which the 500 are the nucleus of the park where the established order of conservation is absolute.

There is the pine forest of pinus halepensis which is the prevalent vegetation of the park was (and to a certain extent continues to be) the most extensive and well-preserved pine forest of eastern Attica. The overland section of the area is an example of a Mediterranean landscape.

3) Lavrion port is 10 km from Sounio area. Ferries to the cycladic islands depart daily from the port. So you can take the ferry for a daily trip to Kea or Kythnos island.

4) Car is not necessary but if you would like to explore the extended area it is recommended.
