Marathon villa description

The villa offers a unique retreat in one of the most splendid and environmentally protected locations of Attica, a breath away from the historic site of Marathon, the lovely mountains of Gramatico and a bus ride to the Athens metro.

If you would like to rent a villa that's truly elegant and incredibly spacious, you won't find any place better than Villa Stella. The villa has three floors of which the top two floors are for rent. If additionally space and more privacy is needed, the poolside bedroom suite can also be made available. Just imagine over 4000 sq ft of the top two floors of the villa, forty foot ceilings in the living room and fourteen-foot ceilings in the four air conditioned bedrooms, and three large bathrooms. Add to this a huge 20' X 45' swimming pool, satellite television and large balconies with ocean views.

The décor of this villa is absolutely outstanding. Beautiful marble floors, marble bathrooms, huge windows and sliding glass doors to facilitate a view of the Aegean from most rooms, gracious large verandas and porticoes, huge BBQ next to the rose garden. Large gourmet kitchen, with oversize side by side refrigerator and outside water and ice maker, dishwasher, double sinks, ceramic stove top, convection oven, more cutlery and dishware than you need.

Family room with the fireplace right at the corner, adjoining the kitchen with a breakfast table, connects to the dining room through large French doors!

Dining room with huge expanse of windows overlooking the Aegean, opening to the huge living room with 180 degree views and a private arched veranda overlooking the Aegean, two story ceilings, huge TV and stereo. What have you got? Our Villa!

Visiting Athens is easy. One can take the bus and leave the driving to the Greeks, or drive to the metro station in 30 minutes and go anywhere in Athens. Even better take a private tour with and let Stavros show you around his home town. Spend the whole day touring Athens, eat at your favorite little taverna at the Plaka and come home to splendid serenity and beauty.

Things to do: Too tired today? Walk on down to the rocks and swim in our secluded cove that only the locals know about. Snorkeling or diving is incredible here in the deep blue waters of the Aegean (10-50 m). So, you are not that good of a swimmer? There are many other spots for you to discover that will meet your needs. You want to be able to walk in the water, then by all means go to the most popular crystal clear beach of Attika, Schinias beach. Swim, sunbathe and have a lovely lunch at one of the little taverns on the road. That is 5 minutes away from villa Stella.
You don’t want to go anywhere today! No problem, stick around the pool and enjoy the view. Put a couple of steaks on the grill, enjoy a cold beer and feel right at home! We promise you!

The villa is located within 2.5 hours from Delphi, 1.5 Hours from Corinth, 50 minutes of Athens, Sounion, 30 minutes from the port of Rafina from where you can take the boat to Myconos, Andros, Tinos and 30 minutes form the national highway.

Our villa is licensed by the Ministry of Tourism of Greece, according to the recent regulations of December 2013. We recommend that you always ask about the licence when considering renting a vacation home in Greece.
