A villa with many views
This villa is very well suited for 3 or 4 families.
It is very large and it has a fantastic pool. (one part of the pool is about 1 meter, the other 4 meters deep)
There are stores nearby (if you want something small you can find the "European Mini Market" at about 5 minutes driving or for something bigger: "Market-In" at about 10 minutes driving)
The beautiful Attica views can be seen from its terraces. There are many beautiful beaches around: Lagonissi, Sounio, Mojito or Vouliagmeni. (varying from 15-35 mins by car) If you are ok with driving for 1 hour you can go to Schinias beach near Marathon.
Athena is 45 minutes drive.
The tavernas around are ok (pork, chicken, lamb, tzatziki, greek salad...), unfortunately the fish is quite expensive even if the sea is everywhere :). One very nice tavern is Diamantis nearby the villa or if you go to Schinias: The Good Heart.
Coming back to the villa: the Wi-Fi is not always working too well and the Garbage Bins around (the closest is at 5 mins by car) are not always often emptied.
You also have to be careful at the hot water: the photovoltaic panels might get covered by the wind (they have sort of a cover protection) and in that case the panels won't work anymore.
The villa has many other neighboring villas so in case you'll have the bad luck to have noisy neighbors you might have a problem with the afternoon sleep :)
I want also to highlight one unpleasant aspect: the landlord tried to have us paying for the pool vacuum cleaner (she said that it got broke after we checked-in). After telling her that we won't pay anything she gave up this idea. Even though the result was that for one week the pool wasn't cleaned at all.
We have been 3 years in the business, and we always like to leave customers satisfied.
I should start first with the pool cleaner which was broken but because there was no way to prove whose fault it was,, the only fair action would be to ignore it, which as you saw we did, and no one was charged for it.
Next, concerning the hot water the house has the capability to provide 120 litres per day of hot boiling water. It is common sense that hot water cannot be infinite at any house. We measured the water counter of the house and before your visit it was at 161m^3 and when you left it was at 171m^3. That is 10m^3 spent in 7 nights (that is 10000 litres). At least there could be some concern for water waste and common sense.
Secondly, the waste bins are located 2 minutes away (on foot) from the house (you go left towards the downhill, then you go down the road on your right and the bins are in front of you). Moreover, it is not the owners fault that the public waste bins are not empty at all times. That is the local council’s responsibility.
Finally, the wifi was not off neither broken, but you need to understand that the house is located in the outskirts of Athens at a small village, unfortunately maximum speed is 4Mb/s, and we never had any complaint before for the internet connection as our previous customers were aware of that. 15 people using the same wifi connection at the same time can be challenging.
Last but not least, you mentioned that the pool was left dirty. The pool was full of toys and items at the bottom which restricted the pool cleaning machine, that’s also why we believe it broke. The sign over the pool clearly stated not to drop items inside.
It would be nice to review and comment on things that can actually be improved.
Despite your harsh comments and unpleasant behaviour,y we hope you enjoyed your stay.
A great house
The house is great with 3 floors, each with a bathroom, and several bed rooms and open/common areas. But the best parts are the outside areas with several terraces as well as a BBQ area with a big dining table and bar - and of course the pool, which the kids loved.
Also, the landlord Anna and her husband, are very helpful, flexible and serviceminded. As well as very fast returning messages/emails.
We could definately come back here.
Geräumiges Haus, großartiger Pool und nette Vermieterin
Sehr geräumiges und gut aufgeteiltes Haus mit einem großartigen Pool und einer sehr gepflegten Außenanlagen. Ideal für große Familien oder einer Gruppe von Freunden, so wie wir es waren.
Beim Grill sollte man beachten, dass diese selbst besorgt werden muss. Wir hatten leider keinen Einkaufsmöglichkeit gefunden, um welche zu kaufen.
Idealerweise hat man ein Auto, das Haus liegt eher in einer ruhigen Gegend und große Einkäufe sind bequemer mit den Auto zu erledigen. Bars, Restaurants, Strand und grössere Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind zu Fuß ca. in 20-30 Minuten erreichbar.
Zwei kleine Supermärktenfür die wichtigsten Lebensmittel sind ca. 5-10 min entfernt.
Die Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin im Vorfeld und auch während des Aufenthalts war wirklich gut und sehr schnell.
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen! Vielen Dank für die Gastfreundlichkeit!
A perfect family home, if you come as a big family, and a fantastic host familly
We are a family of 13, in the age from 55 years to 10 month, and there where all the facilities we needed in the house. The house was charming, clean and have perfect both in site and out site facilities - big rooms, big living rooms, and a huge out side grill area + a huge and very clean pool. The location is perfect - 15 minutes drive from the airport and 30 minutes from Athen, or Posidons temple.
But the best about this house is the host family. Owner Anna and her husbond Stavros are extremly helpfull, and perfect host. As they know the area, they helped us to some extraordinary experiences, and were available all the time.
We can highly recommend this house - it is absolutely worth the money, and more than that.
Dear John and family,
it was a pleasure having you as guests at my house. It is a great feeling to be hosts to such nice people. Thank you for taking care of my house as if it were your own.
Villa Anna is in a convenient location. It's only 20 km from the Athens International Airport "Eleftherios Venizelos". The historic centre of Athens is only 40 km away. There is frequent bus/metro transport. A beautiful coastal route takes you to the Cape of Sounio where you can take delight in the sunset at the ancient ruins of the Temple of Poseidon. You can even go on a full day cruise to nearby islands from the Marina Flisvos which is only a thirty-minute drive from the house. The well-known port of Pireas is about 35 kilometres away. A great idea is to go on a day trip by car and visit the Isthmus of Corynth, the ancient ruins of Mycanae and the ancient site of Nemea, all of which are very close to one another.
There are various beaches within easy reach of the Villa. Some are sandy with beach umbrellas, sun beds and canteens that sell snacks. Others are pretty little pebble bays with crystal clear water.
It's only a 3-minute drive to the main shopping area. There are supermarkets, bakeries, meat and fresh fish markets and pharmacies. There is a playground with inflated toys for kids. There are also 2 grocery stores within walking distance. You can enjoy coffee and pastries at cafes by the sea and sample traditional Greek food at the local tavernas. A few night clubs are in the area. One should not miss the experience of catching a movie in the open air outdoor cinemas in a nearby town.
