Voula villa description

This wonderful villa is situated in a truly spectacular location, directly across the temple of Poseidon in Sounio and 5 minutes away from a charming sand and pebble beach. Within the 8 acres of our land there is beautiful olive grove, pistachio trees, a vegetable garden and an abundance of various mediterranean flowers and fruiting trees.

The villa offers privacy as there are no close by neighbors and has stunning uninterrupted views from east to west. Depending on which veranda or room you wish to sit you will have the chance to admire the temple, the Aegean sea, the hill behind the house and the serene olive grove. All verandas are smothered in thriving lush bugainvillea and jasmine plants. The front veranda is protected from the sun and breeze and has an extra electrical awning that allows you to sit there all day. The large table can easily accommodate ten people and the build sofa is ideal for lounging and napping in the daytime. From here you can look over at the sea and admire the temple even at nighttime when it is all lit up. In the corner of the front veranda there is a lovely spot with views of the grove, the sea in the background and the temple on the left. This is the perfect spot for afternoon coffees and sundowners as from here you can watch the sun dive into the Aegean. Last but not least the veranda on the northwest side of the house is cool and breezy and has also great views to the grove, temple and sea. This veranda has a comfortable lounge under a bamboo cane roof and a dining table with easy access to the kitchen, suitable for the hotter days of the summer as it benefits from the northerly breeze.

The house has been recently renovated and has wooden floors throughout. There is lots of closet space and big windows in every room. The living room and dining room are airy, bright and have views to the garden and the sea. There are three built couches in the living room that if necessary double as beds. The kitchen is fully equipped, newly refurbished with brand new appliances and all sorts of gadgets.

The master bedroom faces south to the grove and the sea. You can practically see the temple of Poseidon while lying on the double bed and step out on the veranda and enjoy your breakfast under the almond tree. The bedroom has an en suite jacuzzi bathroom with a view to the garden. The second large bedroom on the north west side is very cool and has a nice view to the sea and the greenery of the garden. It has a double bed a big working space and a bathroom with a stylish shower. The third bedroom can be used as a single or double and also has a big desk and views to the olive grove and to the hill.

                  Car: Recommended

                  On the rocky peninsula that projects into the sea at the south-east tip of Attica, the Athenians built sanctuaries to their two most important deities: Poseidon and Athena. A visit to the ruins of the temple of Poseidon is a must, especially during sunset when the heat of the day has subsided and the sun dives into the Aegean and the horizon is filled with spectacular colors.

                  The beaches

                  St Peter.

                  The closest beach has sand and small round pebbles in parts is a 5 minute walk from the house. It is quiet and picturesque and well protected from northerly winds that prevail in the area during summertime. It has a wonderful view of the temple and the open Aegean sea.

                  Hotel Aegeon beach.

                  This is an organized sandy beach directly beneath the temple of Poseidon and benefits from the hotel’s facilities (beach bar, showers, restaurants). Access is free but there are charges for umbrellas and deck chairs. There are also a few tavernas nearby. This one is about 15 minutes walk away.

                  Legrena beaches

                  The village of Legrena is about 5 minutes drive away and has 4 truly wonderful successive wide sand beaches with no facilities and plenty of space and clear waters.

                  Transport

                  • Sounio is 37 km away from Eleftherios Venizelos International airport and there are buses operating on this route

                  • The distance from the centre of Athens to Sounio is about 60 km and there are regular bus services that take two routes: first one through Mesogeia via Attiki Odos (motorway) and the second is by the coast.

                  • Lavrion, the closest town is 9 km away, is a busy but quaint port and has banks, restaurants, cafes, bars, post office, medical centre, various rental services ranging from cars to diving and sailing gear and a complete and lively market.
