Welcome to the Mermaid Villa! Our Villa has been in the family for 3 generations, and is truly a unique jewel. Beach front, and right on the Mediterranean Sea with 2 private entries onto a small sandy bay excellent for swimming. You are conveniently located just 1 hour from Athens, accessible from the Athens International Airport by train. Our air conditioned villa is a one bedroom with 2 additional beds in the living area, fully appointed kitchen, open terraces with retractable awnings and spectacular views of the mountains and sea. We also have an additional sleeping quarter, the “beach bungalo” with an additional 2 beds for parties of more then 4 people. Our water comes from the famed Loutraki springs, so you bathe in fresh spring water! We also have a comprehensive library with guidebooks, historical books and classics all relating to the area. Private and fenced in on an 1 acre Olive orchard in the charming village of Kalamaki, near Isthmia and Corinth.

Kalamaki, Isthmia is an area rich in history and mythology! Only 15 minutes from Ancient Corinth, 1 hour from the ancient theatre of Epidavros, and 1/2 hour from the ancient monastery of Daphni. Located on a sandy beach, enjoy the pristine waters. Enjoy a swim, or a snorkel. Just 2 minutes walking distance away, you can enjoy fresh local seafood and fare at the local tavernas, and the bar at the 5 star resort, the Kalamaki Beach Hotel. The hotel offers water sports, tennis, as well as arranging tours and boat rides. Kayaks are available for rental just a 2 minute walk up the coast. Enjoy a tranquil kayak ride down the coast towards Loutra. Sip a cafe frappe, or enjoy an authentically prepared meal using fresh local ingredients at one of the tavernas on the Saronic Bay.

Take a boat ride through the historic Corinth Canal, only minutes away. 15 minutes driving time, will bring you to the city of Corinth. Enjoy international designer boutiques, restaurants, shopping, entertainment and night clubs. You can either drive 1 hour to Athens, or take the train, to enjoy what the city has to offer, and then retire to the Mermaid Villa for fresh air and calm. The new, fast train will bring you directly into Athens for a day of shopping, museums and sight seeing, including service directly to the airport.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1962

About the owner: My name is Silvia Maki and I live with my husband Ray on the Garden Isle of Kaua'i in Hawaii. I own and operate a Yoga Studio in Hanalei which I opened in 1999, and my husband is a permaculture specialist with a farm and a nursery. I am first generation American, and so most of my family is in Europe, as my father's side is Greek, and my mother's side is Scandinavian. Greece has always been my home away from home, and our summer house has been in the family since my grandfather built it in 1962. It is in an unbelievable location, and we hope you can enjoy it too.

Why the Owner Chose Corinth, Greece:
We have been all over Greece to many of the islands etc, but find that the convenience of being right on the sea is unexcelled anywhere else. You can easily stay local for your whole stay as there are wonderful tavernas offering fresh local foods and seafoods just down the road. It is the perfect get away

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
.I serendipitously met the archeologist who had been excavating the surrounding areas since the 1950s, who is particularly renowned for his discovery of the stained galss windows in the nearby temple of Isis. He described the local area as the capital of cosmopolitan ancient world. The area is literally teeming with ancient ruins and historical sights. Then return after a day of sight-seeing to a view of the sea and the mountains, green even in Summer, which is quite unusual for Greece.
