About Mr Nikos

Born one summer of the last century and grown up in Athens Greece'

As a former Navy officer I had the chance to step almost on every rock of the Aegean Archipelago and see the unique beauty of my Country. Later on the cruise ships I was lucky to do my service on "Celebrity Cruises" perhaps the most exceptional company on the cruise market ever. Today, I still live in Athens and I manage several rental villas.


Nowadays, almost everyone who has a summer house is able to rent it as a tourist accommodation and the web is overflowing of words like “low price, villa, luxury, spacious, next to the sea, etc...”

Fortunately, its way easier now for the travelers who they know what they’re looking for, to understand the differences between the “bargain, the reasonable & the irrational” asked fees.

That’s one of the reasons why at “Villa Scorpio” we don’t worry at all especially now, where competitiveness is much higher. Because it really worth’s the money you pay.

At first you may read our previous guests reviews (non fictions but real).

From all the self-catering properties on the tourist market, only few they have the “tourist accommodation exclusive sign” given by the Greek authorities (Ministry of Economy, Development and Tourism).

It will be probably said to you that it’s not necessary any longer for running a villa and yes, this is true. But think that the villas own the sign have been checked and approved officially.

So, you know for sure that at “Villa Scorpio” you’ll find everything what you agreed to. That what you see at the pictures on our advertisement it is real.

That there will be no surprises other than what you were expected to be far beyond that.

Our doors are open to welcome you to our home -your home- for unforgettable vacations.

Let us share the Greek hospitality with you & help to make your dream come true._

Mr Nikos purchased this villa in 2004

Why Mr Nikos chose Attica

It was a common dream of both my wife and me to build a house next to the sea. We were planning to move permanently and leave Athens city forever. You can feel that this house has been build with passion and personal care. It's a house with character surrounded by extreme positive energy as many of our guest said so far.

Nevertheless, life is tricky and usually plans are changing in a minute. So, we decided to rent our house. Bringing all my experience from the cruise ships and among my wife's affection for decoration and her deep knowledge of hospitality, our home became "Villa Scorpio".

It may be listed as self catering villa but I can assure you that it could be easily characterized as a private hotel.

From our side we can promise you that we will do everything is possible to make your vacations smooth and relaxed. We'll be on call 24/7 for anything you'd like to ask. We will support you to find and arrange from a daily visit to an historical place, to a scuba diving safari at the Aegean waters.

Why This Property? Just read our past guests reviews and you'll find the answer yourself. Don't forget to share it with us and the people who will come at the future.

Luxurious Holiday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

As someone who has travelled extensively, I was looking for somewhere luxurious and picturesque to take friends for my 40th Birthday Celebrations. Villa Scorpio exceeded any preconceptions I may have had from the photographs. It is a unique, secluded, beautiful home, built with great attention to detail. A private drive, stunning pool area, floor to ceiling windows and luxurious furnishings and fittings.

The layout of the villa made it easy to gather together as a group, or find some privacy too. The tastefully decorated bedrooms were spacious and well equipped. Everyone had their own bathroom facilities, some even a kitchenette. Two of the bedrooms opened onto the pool.The Master bedroom had its own jacuzzi bath and roof terrace, and with the patio doors open, you could lay in bed and listen to the sea! The kitchen was equipped with quality appliances, and fully stocked with all the food you could need. The pool was lit at night, which made it great to entertain outside. The views were stunning, truly a place to relax and recharge. I definately intend to return in the summer months and would find it very easy not to leave the villa!

Although secluded, it was convenient and easy to reach local sights, drive to the centre of Athens or to the Metro Station. It was a great location to escape back to after a hectic day of sightseeing.

Nikos and Dina, the owners, treated us like family. They met and guided us from the airport, provided us with travel and tourist advice and were at the end of the phone if we needed anything. They cooked us a delicious Greek dinner one night, and really could not have done more to make us feel welcome. They truly made our trip memorable.

I would highly recommend visiting this stunning rental location, you will not be dissappointed.

A perfect vacation in a perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

The greatest home we could ask for our family vacation! Strtarted with Nikos and Dina's warm welcome, went on with day swimmings at the pool, and bathing on the rocky private small laguna. Kind Nikos and Dina were always available for any quesion or advise. The house is fully equiped and each section of the house has full privacy. Just 30 minutes from mthe airport, 10 minutes from the small town Lavrion and 40 minutes from Athens (by car) - You can Enjoy both the peace and quiet of this solitary vila and the nearby "civilization". Some evenings we coocked our meals together, some we drove to Lavrion; every morning we had our coffee in front of the sea, and just relaxed... the great memories we have from this villa worth these 5 stars!

A wonderful house in a great setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this wonderful house. The view was fantastic, and was emphasized by the ship-like architecture of the house.

We were 7 people, but the house would easily accommodate 1-2 more families.

We took several trips around the peninsula to Suonio, Lavrio, and Athens, and found the house to be well placed for excursions. We were also thankful for the help we got from the very helpful and friendly host and hostess. Thank you for a great week!

Une maison de rêve au bord de la mer Egée

  • 5 of 5

Une maison où rien de manque, bien décoré, luxueuse sans être ostentatoire.

Un patio au bord de la piscine très agréable et où la brise marine atténue les fortes chaleurs du mois d'août.

La baignade en mer à quelques pas.

Un couple accueillant et toujours disponible pour vous informer des atouts de la région.

Pas de vis à vis, tranquille, au calme.

Le village de Lavrio à 15' bien fourni en supermarket, bars et restaurants.

Aéroport à 30' et Athénes à 45'.

Luxuriously well appointed,stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Scorpio is the perfect location for a large, self-sufficient group looking for a luxurious stay near Athens. The common areas, including two well-appointed kitchens, a huge living room with HDTV and Bose speaker system, have breathtaking views through floor-to-ceiling windows. These windows can be partially or fully opened, depending on the weather.

Each of the bedrooms is a mini-suite, with self-contained full baths. The master bedroom is fit for royalty, with a private deck separate from the rest of the villa and a jacuzzi. Each bedroom is equipped with whisper-quiet AC units, affording cool sleeping conditions, regardless of the wind, temp or humidity.

The villa itself is a two-minute walk to the crystal-clear waters of the Aegean and an topographically interesting ten minute hike to a small, pebbly beach.

In all my days of travelling, I have never seen accommodations cleaner nor in better repair. The owner took great care in helping us understand all the features and benefits of the villa, including the dishwasher, oven, espresso-maker, pool, etc. He insisted we call at any hour with any question and we did. At 11:45 PM one night he happily explained how to turn off a particular outside light, whose switch we couldn't locate.

This part of Attica is not densely populated. The nearest town, Lavrio, is about 15 minutes away by car. But, the "Mini Market," a mere five minutes away, is as well stocked as a small US grocery store.

Lavrio is a very pretty town, with a very large market every Thursday. Dining out in Greece is inexpensive--a full lunch for ten, no drinks, cost a mere 120 Euros.

Driving in Greece is surprisingly easy. All the main roads are well lit and moderately travelled. The drivers are just as crazy as any you would find in the US. Like all of Europe, gasoline is quite expensive, 1.89 Euros/liter while we were there.

Villa Scorpio is about 40 minutes away from the airport. The Acropolis is about 55 or 60 minutes away, including the traffic you'll find once you get in the city. We were anxious about parking near the Parthenon, but found a lot near the Acropolis Museum for 8 Euros all day.

One last and very important feature of Villa Scorpio. Nikos is friendly with a pair of local chefs who will prepare a grand feast on one or more evenings. We used them twice, once for a meat dinner, the other for fish. Both were wonderful.

The patio and pool are elegant and peaceful.

All in all, a marvelous week.

35km from Athens airport, so close from paradise

  • 5 of 5

The place is beautiful, especially in spring with flowers covering the whole garden and turtles hiding. The architecture is perfectly functionnal with large common spaces inside and outside and a lot of separated places for those wanting to sleep later. It is decorated with taste and you really feel like in a home or in a boat looking at the sea. The equipment of the kitchen and more generally of the house is incredible, including beds, chairs and toys for babys and children. The swimming pool is amazing and the taverna downstairs ideal for BBQ. The owner, Nikos and its wife are just perfect guests: they even cooked a traditional roasted lamb with accompagning salads to welcome us on the day of our arrival on Easter Sunday. Unforgetable.
