Surrounding Points of Interest

Town of Marathon: The town is on the site where the battle of Marathon took place in 490 BC, in which the heavily outnumbered Athenians defeated the Persians. The burial mound of the 192 Athenian dead, also called the 'Soros,' is erected near the battlefield and can be easily visited.

The Marathon Run Museum The origin of the long-distance, endurance race, the 'marathon”, comes from the legend of a Greek soldier who ran in full armor from Marathon to Athens, a distance of 42 kilometers, to announce that the Persians had been miraculously defeated in the battle of Marathon.

The Museum displays 3,100 exhibits that record the history of the Marathon race from 1896 to today, constituting a unique historic sports collection.

Ramnous: The site of Ramnous was an ancient Greek city in Attica, overlooking the Euboean Strait. Its ruins are found northwest of the modern town Aghia Marina near Marathon. Ramnous was strategically significant enough to be fortified and receive an Athenian garrison of ephebes (young men). A fortified acropolis dominates the two small harbors, into which grain was imported for Athens during the Peloponnesian War. The site was known in Antiquity for its sanctuary of Nemesis, the implacable avenging goddess whose sanctuary here was the most important one dedicated to her in ancient Greece. It is located at the end of Schinias Beach.

Vravron: The Sanctuary of Artemis at Vravron is one of the earliest and most revered of the sanctuaries of Attica. An important settlement was established at the inner end of the Bay of Vravron during the Neolithic period. It flourished particularly from Middle Helladic to early Mycenaean times (2000-1600 B.C.).

Review #13508909 “3 or 6 BEDROOM BEACHFRONT VILLA ON MARATHON BAY - SCHINIAS, AMID PINE TREES”

This lovely spot right on Skinias Beach is a sanctuary of calm and serenity. As we journeyed through Greece, this was a welcome break from our hectic itinerary. We are an active family and as such our children, young adults now, really enjoyed the direct access to the beach: lounging in the sun (warm enough even in Oct.), long walks, sports (there is a center nearby that was still open for windsurfing and paddle boarding), beautiful sunsets along with barbecuing and fun antics in the large grassy garden. We always used the large terrace for meals, reading, playing table games and just relaxing. This was a perfect time of year to visit, while there were less tourists and the children there are back in school and so there were times where we had the beach all to ourselves. At the far end of the beach are a few tavernas, one of which provided us with tasty local flavors while we enjoyed one of the most lovely sunsets in the bay. It was about an hour drive outside of Athens by local roads, which we enjoyed as we left the city and reentered the countryside. Our home away from home lies in close proximity to many other interesting sites like Marathon Lake, the Tombs of Marathon, the Archaeological Museum of Marathon with the restored Mycenaean Tomb of Arnos, the sanctuary of the Egyptian Gods in Brexiza (Nea Makri), the ancient city of Ramnous (Grammatiko), the starting point of "the Marathon" which takes place every November (so a great base for any participants) and many, many more. We visited as many sites as we could and were very pleasantly surprised. It is a given, of course, that a car is needed here in order to get the full enjoyment of the area, however just some bicycles would suffice if one wished to remain very local or was a seasoned biker. The spaces in the villa were very clean, well kept and comfortable and the amenities were what one would expect of a contemporary, furnished home. We would definitely recommend this spot to friends and family visiting this area. Thank you Grigoris and Anni for an unforgettable stay!

Vacances les pieds dans l eau

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans cette grande maison idéale pour deux familles. Parfaitement située les pieds dans l eau. Jolie plage de sable parfaite pour les enfants. La maison est située à moins de 10minutes en voiture d un petit village, loin des touristes, où vous trouverez d excellentes tavernes de poisson en bord de mer. La maison se situe au coeur d'une plaine agricole, les fruits et légumes y sont très bon marché et excellents. Enfin, l'accueil de gregoris et de sa famille ont contribué à parfaire de séjour.

Relaxing home base for visiting Greece!

  • 5 of 5

We had an exceptional experience during our stay in Marathonos. Even though there were trying circumstances for our host, he went out of his way to make us comfortable. The house is situated on a quiet spot on Marathonos Beach. We watched the most incredible sunrise with not another person in sight. The nearby town is quaint and far off the well worn tourist path. There is a lovely outdoor cinema, lovely tavernas and markets, all within a few minutes drive.

When you are ready to explore other parts of Greece it is a short drive to the Atticus Odos and you are on your way to Athens, Napflio or any other location you wish to visit.

My only regret is we couldn't stay longer!

Many thanks to Grigoris and Annie!
