Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Ok.. This photo is NOT taken in front of my home. However, I wanted to tell you I also love to travel and have done so all my life. Meeting people from all over the world is the highlight of my life, other than my 4 grand children! I have found out that people who travel on their own, are adventurous, love change and challenge and want to learn about the Greek way of living, our culture and cuisine! My husband Stavros and I, share our time between beautiful North Carolina and Greece.

Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
This is a luxury villa for folks who love great views, their comfort and privacy. it took us several years to decide whether we preferred being closer to the water, but loose the view and the quiet! We chose to built on the top of the hill, enjoying the great vistas and still being within 3 minutes from the water. The best of both worlds.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We are strategically located with a day's trip to several great archaeological places and the ports of Athens that get you to many islands. The airport is 50 minutes away and the closest city within 20 minutes.
